What are people saying?

  • Jason's rating of the film The Screwfly Solution

    When I assert that Joe Dante's two MASTER'S OF HORROR outings are masterpieces, I do so only insofar as I see myself addressing television works rather than truncated feature films. THE SCREWFLY SOLUTION cannot be understood as a masterpiece independent of its being television. I have always thought of Joe Dante as pop culture's most kindly subversive, but w/ this one he's basically napalming Mainstreet America.
