Book Review: Night Film by Marisha Pessl

Not since way back in 2006 – when I stumbled onto Mark Danielewski’s House of Leaves – have I been so engrossed by the world of a book as I was by Marisha Pessl’s Night Film. Now, I’m not saying it’s as arrestingly visual, intricately woven, or labyrinthine as Leaves, but it’s still an expertly crafted neo noir tale of mystery and death. Had the mighty Alfred Hitchcock tried his hand at the written word, he might’ve given us something akin to Night Film.

Rosemary's Baby (REVIEW)

I recently had the opportunity to attend a press re-screening of two of Roman Polanski’s most influential films. “Repulsion” and “Rosemary’s Baby” were the picks for the night to honor the work that Polanski has done in his career. I decided against writing a full blog post about the event and thought doing a review of “Rosemary’s Baby” would be more fitting. This cult classic has become a seminal horror icon and still holds up as a masterpiece of film. The pacing of events combined with the competency of each character is as subtle as the hellish baby bump growing on Rosemary’s tummy.
