Eric’s Review: Agatha (2022 Another Hole in the Head Film Festival)

Eric’s Review: Agatha (2022 Another Hole in the Head Film Festival)

★★★1/2 out of ★★★★★

Agatha resides at the intersection of an experimental art piece and a horror movie. Knowing that, you know how to proceed with this film. Agatha is visually stunning but ultimately difficult to process at times. It is mesmerizing and dreamy and entirely devoid of dialogue, so your attention span will be tested. Ultimately if you like visually poetic and painterly films, this will be your bag.

Eric’s Review: Freeze (2022 H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival)

Eric’s Review: Freeze (2022 H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival)

★★★1/2 out of ★★★★★

Freeze takes elements from the Legenary H.P. Lovecraft library: The Shadow over Innsmouth and At the Mountains of Madness have been combined to make it into an entertaining romp through the arctic. For the independent production house Dark Temple Motion Pictures, this is their most ambitious effort to date, and it looks terrific, though it really could have used several more actors to flesh out the environment. (literally).

★★★★ out of ★★★★★

Fear the Pythagorean Theorem!

Wait… what?

The latest film from trendsetting actor/directors Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson explores the fear of pattern languages. Math can be a frustratingly daunting experience at best and mind-bogglingly cryptic at the extremes. Think of it. Irrational numbers. ∞. Triskadecaphobia. π. Abstract numbers. Dividing by zero. What does it all mean? The laws and rules of mathematics that govern our lives can be twisted. Oh, the Horror!
