THE NIGHT HOUSE, DEMONIC, and CONFETTI on Episode #371

Rebecca Hall points a flashlight at something offscreen with a look of surprise on her face in the movie The Night House

Rebecca Hall investigates some creepy stuff in THE NIGHT HOUSE

We kick off this week’s show by reviewing Neill Blomkamp’s disappointing digital horror film DEMONIC (01:34), a movie that lacks a lot of things like cohesive story and mythology, but most surprisingly, it lacks his usual great production design and special effects. Next, we discuss CONFETTI (17:42), Ann Hu’s moving yet ableist immigrant tale about a Chinese mother (Zhu Zhu) trying everything she can to give her daughter with dyslexia a proper education in the U.S. We wrap up with THE NIGHT HOUSE (33:43), David Bruckner’s atmospheric horror movie about a wife (Rebecca Hall) haunted by the increasingly disturbing secrets she learns about her recently deceased husband. And in this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, we talk about Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s 1950 showbiz drama ALL ABOUT EVE starring Bette Davis and Anne Baxter.
