I started this week with the rather disappointing horror movie It Follows (2014). It was disappointing because it was overhyped and it didn’t live up to expectations despite some chilling moments (watch adaptations of M.R. James ghost stories for scary supernatural chase narratives). I watched a few Japanese films this week – the awful White Panic (2005) and Gusha no Bindu Me (Hellevator: The Bottled Fools) (2004), and I watched the awesome As the Gods Will (2014) directed by Takashi Miike and the super Spirited Away (2001). Like most of the internet I watched Kung Fury as well.
I reviewed The Light Shines Only There (2014) and that’s it.
What was released this week?
