- Murder Party - On Halloween, a lonely schlub finds an invitation to a "Murder Party" just lying there on the street and decides to attend. Unfortunately, it seems that he's the one who is deemed to be murdered by a bunch of struggling, pretentious artists hoping to secure grant money from a sadistic academic. On the other hand, art isn't easy and it turns out that killing this guy is besot with mishaps and accidents. This was Jeremy Saulnier's (of Blue Ruin and Green Room fame) first full length feature, and it's a bit of a hoot. Sure, it shares a certain dark streak with his other films, but this also introduces quite a bit of humor into the mix, making for a generally enjoyable experience. It's clearly low budget and visually not up to par with his later efforts, but you can still see the same DNA in the structure and unfolding of the story. It's got some nice horror elements to it, lots of practical effects that mostly look great.

- Cathy's Curse - A young girl is possessed by her aunt's spirit and proceeds to go on a profanity laden rampage. What a bizarre little film. It's, well, not very good, but it sorta rockets past its limitations and eventually lands well into So Bad It's Good territory.

- No Power (Robot Chicken)
- Raw - A teen raised as a vegetarian goes to a veterinary school, meets up with her sister, befriends her gay roommate, and gets a taste for meat. Human meat! Alas, the film is not as schlocky as my description makes it sound. Impeccably crafted and shot but a little slow and aimless, the film has a surreality to it that works well enough. That, or French veterinary schools are way more intense and borderline abusive than most other schools. I mean, it is filled with French people, and they're the worst (I kid, I kid, I am actually the one who is the worst), so there is that.
6WH: Week 6 - No Discernible Theme Week
I've been pretty good about cobbling together themes for a given week over the past few years, but every once in a while inspiration fails me and I end up with a week like this where I've watched a bunch of movies with no discernible theme. These things happen.
