I sadly never got to see 2017's It in theaters, in no small part because "you'll float too!" was what the people on the Weather Channel were warning would happen if anybody in South Florida stepped outside during Hurricane Irma. Well, with the second half of the story having just come out, better late than never, right? So I made this a double feature.
Rated R for violence/horror, bloody images, and for language
The penultimate night of Popcorn Frights went back in time with two movies set in the past, one filled with Argento-esque retro '70s glamour and the other a micro-budget throwback to classic Universal monsters by a local theater troupe.
Up first, proof that A24 knows damn well at this point what its brand is among horror fans...
In Fabric (2019)
Rated R for strong sexual content including a scene of aberrant behavior, and some bloody images
It was ladies' night at Popcorn Frights on their seventh day, with two films both directed by women and built heavily around their female characters. Unusually, it was also a night where neither film was what one could call a horror movie, even if both were horror-adjacent; one was a sci-fi thriller, the other a Lynchian teen drama. I'm not complaining; both were pretty damn good.
