I’ve realized something lately: my media consumption is reaching the point wherein I’m very much able to recognize what I find “good”, but I’ve stopped taking the time to analyze the why of it all. I’ve stopped the critical thinking and expository thinking that are key for writing reviews. Considering a partial point of this site when I envisioned it some time ago was to not only expose my readership to things I find pertinent and interesting, but also to explain why I find things pertinent and interesting, I have to say I feel a little shame for not taking the time to hone those skills.
Concerning Jake Jaxson’s The Haunting, I can say I have a few words to share, and that makes me happy. I watch this mini-feature and I’m absolutely delighted. To a broader point, nearly all of the productions that Cockyboys have been handing out lately have left me delighted. I call The Haunting in particular a mini-feature and not a scene because we’re not just watching a flourescently-lighted and single location staged sex scene padded on the front and back ends by some cheesy b-roll. No, what we’re seeing here is a well crafted piece of themed erotic filmmaking that ventures neither into pretentiousness or camp. In someone else’s hands it could’ve easily slid into either, or both.
