I’m linking this because I’m still irritated that a decent, at best, Horror movie, It Follows, received such ridiculous acclaim. I think it’s a statement of how lacking the Horror genre has been lately (and yes, there are still plenty of Horror films being made that are way better than It Follows. I will say it again, Babadook is the best Horror movie I’ve seen in years.), prompting critics to accord it more credibility than it deserves. Anyway, no offense meant to it’s many fans, I enjoyed it, but enjoyment is a far cry from lavishing it with praise. Time for Tarantino’s take.
It Follows director, David Robert Mitchell, seems a little upset over the remarks, offering to give QT some notes of his own. While I’m sure we could all quibble about issues in Tarantino films (like the fact that Death Proof is just a straight piece of shit, and he still thinks that it was just an issue of misjudging it’s, lack of, commercial appeal. Nope, it just sucked.), I think that DRM is gonna have to develop a thicker skin, especially coming off such an otherwise acclaimed movie.
