Yeah yeah, year-end lists are a thing, and I struggled a bit to come up with one that didn’t annoy me. In my frustration I turned to Letterboxd for a kind of Year In Review. My Letterboxd Diary is interesting. To me at least. It starts on October 16, 2018 with the movie Trigger Man which was recommended by my friend and colleague William when we were working at the late great Naro Video. I had just found out what Letterboxd was, and started using it that very day.
At first I considered listing only horror movies, but decided against that. I did however set up some loose guidelines for myself. For the most part, I only listed movies I’d never seen before and not movies I’ve rewatched. There are some exceptions here and there, but there are absolutely no criteria for why any of said rewatches got included. So here, for your dining and dancing pleasure, is my favorite horror movie from each month.
I liked the, uh, point this movie made.
Promising Young Woman (2/13)
I loved this, but man was it bleak. Not sure why I never got around to reviewing it.
The 7th Victim (3/18)
Dunno why it took me so long to finally get to this.
My post about this one includes a flow chart I found online. It don’t help.
I dunno what the hell happened in May, but this is the only movie I have listed for the entire month.
Solomon Kane (6/25)
I did this for blank 2021 Swashbucklathon over at Silver Screen Classics. I really need to get back to doing blogathons. Maybe I’ll even run one.
The Special (7/27)
Sticky. Gooey. Drippy. Gross. Overall a pretty good time.
Repo! The Genetic Opera (8/3)
This came highly recommended by my daughter-in-law. She was not wrong.
The Night House (9/12)
More wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff.
Aka Daddy’s Deadly Darling.
Wekufe: The Origin Of Evil (11/2)
Loved this! I can scarce overstate how much. Definitely one of my top 5 watches of 2021. I can’t wait to see what Javier Attridge does next.
Apparently I have more of a thing for time loop movies than I realized.
And that’s my kinda year in review folks. Cheers!
