Sometimes you’re in the mood for a challenging cinematic experience. Sometimes you’re not. B-movies, a term that once applied to films that were second in a double feature, are macabre masterpieces that are often made on the cheap with cheesy special effects and campy dialogue about giant monsters and experiments gone terribly, horribly wrong.

Hello, you. June’s theme will be LONGING. Unlike more-acute forms of desire like desperation or need, longing is a sweet ache—more pining for something than dying for it. It’s nostalgia, homesickness, boredom, a persistent feeling of lack, dreaming of escape/the future. It’s summer: summer homes & cottages, stuffy summer bedrooms, sun-bleached memories of summers past. The shadow of September that hangs over June. It’s secret hangouts, crushes, unrequited love. Send what you’ve got here, and thanks. ♥
