Hot Knives looks kind of eh,
Yeah, it's basically a bunch of drunk/stoner sketches with an afterthought of a plot*.  The viewing experience was probably improved by the alcohol being served at the candy bar.

but Sword and the Claw looks legit amazing.
It is, I highly recommend it.  This was the first time in months I've gotten out to that theatre's "Secret Cinema"** and this was one of the best ones yet!

*a pretty good description of all the movies made by this group of filmmakers
**they don't announce the name of the movie they're showing beforehand, you find out only when it starts

Slay the Spire is amazing.
42.7% of all statistics are made up on the spot.
If you can't fix it with duck tape you haven't used enough.
I intend to live forever -- so far, so good.

Saw a newly-restored cult canuxploitation classic last night:


Quote
This kitschy cult-comedy/sci-fi/horror/musical plays like an Ed Wood film mixed with a punk rock musical. In the fictional small town of Burquitlam, B.C., local butcher Bob (Dawson) hires a mysterious hulking assistant, Abdulla the Turk (jazz musician Clarence ‘Big’ Miller), who loves butchering a bit too much. Meanwhile, a teenage genius (Andrew Gillies) from a family of Moldovan immigrants conducts strange experiments with a stolen car – and that’s just the vague outline of a plot that ranges from mildly bizarre to completely absurd. Oh, and yes, it’s a musical.

It was great, really "punches above it's weight" for such a gonzo script and low budget.  Here's a review from the Canuxploitation! site: http://www.canuxploitation.com/review/bigmeat.html
