The Phynx

Phar-out, phunny, phreaky stuff.


Comedy

Rod Lott
If movies could be drug-tested, The Phynx would be in big trouble. The 1970 comedy is not just an obscurity, but an oddity, like a hallucinogenic brew mixed by Peter Max and Hanna-Barbera. Newly rescued from Nowheresville by Warner Archive, the film is a spy spoof on the goofball level of Get Smart — in spirit, that is, not creatively.

The Last Exorcism Part II

What possessed them?


Horror

Rod Lott
Unlike many moviegoers, 17-year-old farm girl Nell Sweetzer (Ashley Bell, The Day) has no memory of the events of The Last Exorcism, a found-footage smash of three years prior. The Last Exorcism Part II finds her taking steps to build life anew, beginning in a boarding house for troubled girls, where the deeply devout Nell is exposed to such heretofore corrupting influences as lipstick and rock music and YouTube and cotton candy.

Q: The Winged Serpent

'Q' earns a B+.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Michael Moriarty's Quinn is a lowlife blowhard, a criminal who never has paid taxes but always is quick to pay attention to the bottle. Yet it's this very collection of human deficiencies that marked Q: The Winged Serpent unique upon its 1982 release and helped keep it alive ever since.
