Pooka!, 2018 – ★★★

Take Jacob’s Ladder, a weird sprinkling of Lynchian sound design and aesthetic, mix it with Jeckyll & Hyde and Child’s Play and you have Pooka, a visually splendid, occasionally frightening, often enjoyable, but ultimate mess, whose ending wants to blow our minds, but more in the way later Saw sequels did, not so much with real mind blowing revelations, but more with a “tadaaaa, don’t think about it” flourish.
