It’s been a while since we’ve had a great horror comedy to sink our teeth into, and A24’s How to Talk to Girls at Parties looks likely to scratch that particular itch. Based on a short story by Neil Gaiman and directed by John Cameron Mitchell, it’s a nostalgic trip back to the days of Return of the Living Dead with plenty of punk, drugs, and random sex. We’ve also got aliens and elements of body horror.
