Happy Weekend!

I hope you are feeling fine.

This is the second part of the trailer post. The first part is here.

I’m still not feeling good and as a result I’ve limited screen time. I did find time to talk about the film Raise the Red Lantern (1991) on Heroic Purgatory and I watched:

Scream (2022)

Ghostbusters Afterlife (2021)

Lovecraft Country (2020)

The Killing of a Chinese Bookie (1977)

Knives Out (2019)

I also posted a review of the horror short SWALLOW and an interview with its director, Mai Nakanishi.
