Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/elitol1/threeimaginarygirls.dreamhosters.com/wp-content/themes/pegasus/includes/theme-shortcodes.php on line 340

You know I always have to run through the Northwest Connections program for SIFF! This year’s offerings include a lot of documentaries and a fair amount of my favorite movie genre: HORROR. First up: I’m stupidly excited for The Primary Instinct because Stephen Tobolowsky is THE BEST EVER and I love listening to The Tobolowsky […]

SIFF Take: Goodnight Mommy

Two angelic 9-year-old twin boys arrive home to find their mother in the hallway with a face all wrapped up in plastic surgery bandages. Mommy needs her rest in order to recover—never mind that she lurks around in her bedroom poking at her bloodshot eyes or pretends to be sleeping when she’s really having a […]

“It’s slow, but it’s not dumb.” ~ Hugh, IT FOLLOWS Imagine going on a date with someone you really, really like, enjoying a romantic lakeside talk, cozying up in the car for some hot sex—then having that person drag you out into the middle of nowhere, tie you to a chair, and explain that by […]

With over 400 films playing the 40th Seattle International Film Festival, there was NO WAY I was going to be able to watch and write about what got me into those theater seats before the festival was over—or, more importantly, before they screened for the last time during it. Here’s a quick list of films […]

Rigor Mortis (Geung si)

{Rigor Mortis opens in Seattle on Friday, 6/6, and is screening at AMC Pacific Place} I was pretty psyched to watch Rigor Mortis (especially since I’d just missed it at SIFF), mostly because I knew that Takashi Shimizu was involved as a producer, and I love all incarnations of his Ju-On films—including the American remake […]

SIFF 2014: Week Three Highlights


Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/elitol1/threeimaginarygirls.dreamhosters.com/wp-content/themes/pegasus/includes/theme-shortcodes.php on line 340

SIFF 2014 is lurching along into its final week, and there’s still time to catch up on your cinema (over)consumption if you’ve yet to partake. I can’t protect you from the well-meaning but terrible pre-film bumpers imposed on audiences at each screening — the membership and Egyptian ones are particularly egregious, more so when viewed more than one time […]

SIFF Review: Willow Creek


Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/elitol1/threeimaginarygirls.dreamhosters.com/wp-content/themes/pegasus/includes/theme-shortcodes.php on line 340

Holycrap, you guys. I was not expecting to get completely and totally sucked in by Willow Creek, especially because Director Bobcat Goldthwait has been calling it, “The Blair Squatch Project.” But 10 minutes in, I was ALL in, and even though the premise is ridiculously goofy, the film itself falls firmly in the horror genre. (more…)

SIFF 2014: Week One Highlights

Our local month-long movie megathon struck again Thursday with Jimi: All Is By My Side, a Jimi Hendrix biopic devoid of Jimi Hendrix music. But even if you missed the opening night soiree there’s plenty more to feast your eyes and ears and emotions on before the cinematic smorgasbord unspools its final reel projects its last digital file […]

Imaginary Interview with Kimberly Peirce, Director of Carrie {2013}

Kimberly Peirce, Chloë Moretz, and Julianne Moore on the set of Carrie As a horror fan, I was worried that the recent "re-imagining" of Carrie on screen would either be a regurgitation of DePalma's film, or completely disappointing like the 2002 television movie. But with Kimberly Peirce in the Director's seat, this vision of Carrie turned out […]
