it was great getting to re-watch this fantastic thriller. Also interesting, as I was born in 1993, that Devin and Amy dissect how this influenced all the cop procedurals that flood the networks today. I grew up watching so much CSI with my parents and having Amy and Devin help me look through that lens with this movie's aesthetic was very interesting.
Beautifully disgusting movie. Those Sloth and Lust murder scenes are still shiver-worthy.
As I am about to re-watch THE WITCH, my mind started to draw comparisons between the two. A small-town, blonde, "pure" protagonist being dragged through the coals of hell, kicking and screaming into their new dark existence that they can never escape. John Doe and The Witches drawing Mills and Thomasin respectively are extremely similar. Evil, rarely seen presences both representing hell and meant to deconstruct their targets.
