Re: New decade; new movies (2020)

94. Hi De Ho (1947) - Not to be confused with the 1934 short film with the same name which also stars Cab Calloway. Fun fact; my DVD-collection app got the two mixed up; and we chose to watch this tonight because it was only 10 minutes long. Eventually, we realized that it had been longer than 10 mi...

I just looked up the full list of A24 to see what all it includes. They've done a lot of stuff I've never heard of. I guess horror has only been a more recent thing for them.
