The Motern filmography often feels like it’s operating outside standard rules and ways of making a movie. Obtuse Todd doesn’t feel that way. It meets the way movies are made, designed for festivals with more typical plotting and structure, and then carries on doing the Motern thing anyway on top of all that. As always, it’s a delight how little our friends can conform, even when they’re trying to. What we’re left with is another very funny entry about friends hanging out and singing songs, as a kind of fore-bearer to a staff favorite. We also watched Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2 (1987) and discuss clip-show sequels, the space in horror for fun absurdities, and why it might resonate more than the first entry. Don’t let the Santa get you!
