I’ve been experimenting with something that most normal people who write extensively about movies have done for years: take notes while watching. I’m not sure I was ever much of a note taker, case in point:

  • Laser disc repair
  • Laser death ray fries pet rat
  • Cult film trivia factor 10: Zita Johann of The Mummy (1932) and the amazing The Sin of Nora Moran (1933) and Scott Schwartz, Flick of the classic A Christmas Story (1983). Talk about your 7 degrees of Kevin Bacon (does anyone talk about 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon anymore)?
  • Interesting at the same time nonsensical
  • The ending devolves into straight up expressionism

Now, having read up on Raiders of the Living Dead and its pathway to creation, I’m surprised it made any sense at all.
