What are people saying?

  • Matt Burgess's rating of the film The Possession of Joel Delaney

    Oddball horror satire on race/class relations starring MacLaine as a uptight WASP bitch whose life falls apart when her bohemian brother loses his mind after consorting with (gasp!) Puerto Ricans! The last 10 minutes get particularly nasty but its a joy to watch MacLaine (head to toe in fur) stomp around campily in full Cruella mode, her face in disgust at all the 'darkies' as she wanders the New York slums.
