3 from Hell movie review & film summary (2019) | Roger Ebert
Biggest use of 'Tremendous' you've ever seen, tremendous, tremendous tremendousness. People are saying yuge, yuge use of tremendous, trust me, bigly.

Oh boy! So they kidnapped the warden's wife. does she get raped? If she gets raped, how many times does she get raped? She has to at least get stripped naked. Oh boy, stripped at least! If she doesn't get raped, who does? Someone has to get raped, this IS a Rob Zombie movie! Raped and then like, stabbed 50 times or maybe run over by a truck! Oh boy this is going to be awesome! HARDCOOOOREE!

Great observations all around. Nyong’o is getting all the buzz, but props to Winston Duke, who excels at playing both lovable goof and menacing as hell. That twisted up scowl his tethered sports is like early Ice Cube walking into a poorly maintained truckstop restroom. That’s a compliment.

The Babadook Is Now an Internet Gay Icon, Just in Time for Pride Month
As Susan Sontag writes in her 1964 essay “Notes on Camp,” “Camp sees everything in quotation marks. It's not a lamp, but a ‘lamp’; not a woman, but a ‘woman.’ To perceive Camp in objects and persons is to understand Being-as-Playing-a-Role. It is the farthest extension, in sensibility, of the metaphor of life as theater.” By this definition, the Babadook’s own mimicking of a dandy in a top hat when in actuality the Babadook is a horrific personification of a woman’s grief over her dead husband, fits into the camp concept quite nicely. Additionally, the creature’s own existence as an over-the-top manifestation of emotions falls in line with the whole point of drag performances: to mock expressions of gender and gender norms, particularly “overemotional” femininity, by exaggerating them to the point of ridiculousness.

Haunted heroines: women are taking the lead in horror films | Film | The Guardian
Horror movies, like all movies, come in a variety of styles, from teen slashers like Halloween, Scream and Sorority Row, to gore-free psychological chillers like Les Diaboliques, The Haunting, Rosemary’s Baby, The Others, and The Ring. What all the films I’ve listed do have in common, however, is their central female protagonists. What’s more, they all pass the Bechdel Test.
