The Scary of Sixty-First

Director: Dasha Nekrasova
Year Released: 2021
Rating: 1.0

College friends Noelle (Madeline Quinn) and Addie (Betsey Brown) move into a filthy apartment in Manhattan and are told by a mysterious young woman with a Vyvanse addiction (Nekrasova) that notorious financier (and pedophile) Jeffrey Epstein once owned it ... and then Addie becomes "possessed" and acts like a little girl (and also works one out on the street).  It's being listed as a horror/mystery movie, but it really just gives off jerky film school vibes: the acting is atrocious and the camera's more than a little out of control, pressing against the participants' pores and zooming in at random spots.  That said, if you go into it with an open mind, it's one of the (unintentionally?) funniest movies of 2021: the concluding shot (of a note on a piano) and the dedication ("For Stan") act as the ultimate Ba-Dum-Tss.
