Night Of The Demon Halloween T-shirt, Hoodie, Longsleeve Tee, And Sweater
Night Of The Demon Halloween T-shirt! You’ve heard? Things are not going well at the box office. Last weekend was the second slowest weekend of the year. The Top Gun Effect, in which a deeply repulsive, albeit thrilling, blockbuster single-handedly revives the theatrical experience for an entire industry has forever yet to fully happen. I assume you’ve seen Maverick. (The whole world has.) What has drawn you to the cinema since then? DC League of Super-Pets? More horror movies, please. That’s my suggestion for an industry that seems outdated, which seems to be scrapping one strategy (streaming is the future!) for another (Tom Cruise is the future!) in an effort to maintain compliance. In my mind, an eternal truth repeats here: Scary movies are an excuse to sit in a dark cinema with a bunch of people and watch for a few hours. And there simply aren’t enough really great horror movies hitting theaters. The good news is that there is some exciting news at the moment (Barbarian, see below). Another surprisingly productive program is out this weekend, and a third (from Spain!) is coming next month. Three is a trend, so will theatrical horror make a comeback? This is hope.
I was asked to go into Zach Cregger’s first horror feature without watching the trailer or even reading the plot description. I recommend you do, as this movie derives its typing pleasure from the way it sneaks in what you’d expect and delivers something just slightly to the left. Barbarian’s tune is its biggest hit. Cregger (an actor-comedian-director) has made something really scary but also funny, subversive and well-paced, bloody and irresistibly short. Stop reading and buy tickets: Barbarian hit theaters last weekend at the top of the box office and has been a hit. Here’s the simplest setup: Georgina Campbell plays Tess, who flew to Detroit for a job interview and booked a cheap Airbnb in a dubious neighborhood. When she arrives at midnight, she finds it already occupied by Keith (Bill Skarsgard), who is half friendly, half intimidating. Night Of The Demon Halloween T-shirt! They decided, hesitantly, clumsily, to spend the night in the same bed. Barbarian exploits the discomfort of the sharing economy and forced intimacy of Airbnb, but it doesn’t stop there. All hell breaks loose in Cregger’s movie and in ways you don’t anticipate. Justin Long is super funny in a role I don’t want to tell you about. Suffice it to say that the Barbarian goes in all directions, all the way to its bloody end.
