The trailer for the next movie by the director of Hereditary has dropped. And? Looks as haunting as his first work, just a bit more…technicolor terrifying.
Anyone who has been around OL for a good amount of time (coming up on ten fucking years) knows that I absolutely abhor fucking “best of lists” with a fury. They’re divisive, inflammatory, and lead to bickering and bitching. That said, anyone who has been around OL for a good amount of time also knows that I love cultivating a community wherein we can share dope shit. With that preposterously verbose preamble in mind, I’d like for us to gather and share our Favorites of 2018.
The fashion and function of this motherfucker is to share what we really, really enjoyed this year. As a means to reminisce and share your faves with people who have potentially missed these sweet, sweet thangs. Additionally, it’s a space for others to share their fucking faves that you may have missed. I by no means consider myself to have good taste or particularly incisive insight (especially since I’m rushing to get this out before NYE dinner), so take or leave this list! But, please, please share what you’ve enjoyed in the comments.
There were my favorites of 2018.
Man, Hereditary. Initially, I didn’t think it was that scary or good. Then, I went home and tried to sleep. And reflected. And I realized not only did it scare the shit out of me, but I really enjoyed it. That considered, I’m fucking stoked for the director’s follow-up.
