I'm maybe the last paying netflix disc customer, and I've totally become the guy I could never understand 10 years ago. I've had these three discs collecting dust on my desk for probably 10 months. So long that I forgot why I added this to my queue in the first place. As it turns out, Murder Party was Jeremy Saulnier's first feature length film! I loved both Blue Ruin and Green Room so I was curious to give this one a watch.

Several things right up front: Definitely a tiny budget, definitely made with friends/family (AKA mostly amateurs), definitely the sort of script you'd write as a college student. It's more a comment on art school and the art scene. But amongst all that, you can see a sensibility which carries through in his next two films. A love of humor, tension, and gore.

So yeah, this was pretty fun. It reminded me a bit of Bad Taste, the first Evil Dead, and a tiny bit of the shit I used to do with my friends when I was in high school.

So... up next... It's only 10pm so I'm gonna try to fit in two more movies tonight. so... let's go!
