Spooky Time #10: The Overlook Recap
The Overlook Film Festival just concluded its 2023 event, and it really flexed its influence this year. By my count there were two ★★★★★ movies and at least five ★★★★ movies, meaning that we will see several of them back at the best of awards this year. There are several films here that will be influential for years to come, I am certain. Overlook has once again treated us to some of the best curated films in the genre, and from this festival I can assure our fans that there is much to look forward to coming soon to a theater near you. Listen to Eric and Liz discuss the best (and worst) of the event.
Eric’s Overlook FF Review: Godless: The Eastfield Exorcism
★★★★ out of ★★★★★
🩸🩸 out of 🩸🩸🩸🩸🩸for raw intensity and domestic abuse, and a rough exorcism.
This is a horror movie that examines exorcisms, not from the horror of the demonic possession itself, but that of the zealotry and shoddy practices of non-sanctioned exorcisms as exercised by charismatic charlatans. It recognizes the fragility of those who are mentally ill and the unfortunate abuse that they receive when those who are supposed to love and care for them instead seek help from the questionable practices of religious hucksters.
