I have been watching Jim Jarmusch films since I was in high school. He was my first genuine introduction to independent films and turned me on to the music of Tom Waits, Screaming Jay Hawkins and The Lounge Lizards. I've seen pretty much everything he has made and I cannot fathom what kind of a nice, boring person I would have developed into if I had not discovered his films.

Jim Jarmusch: Indy cool before it was cool.
Fessenden needs to make and star in more movies beside I Sell The Dead (which had potential with Ron Pearlman and Dominic Monaghan, but ended up sucking). I wish I could give a more critical breakdown, but I fell asleep so there you go. Quality and even quantity doesn't have to be that monumental (thus the marijuana in our movie night; just like chocolate in your peanut butter or mustard on your hot dog). Stick to engaging films like The Room, Mega Shark Vs. Grant Octopus or Alligator which have all been previously and better reviewed on this site then this weak post.
Getting back to Larry Fessenden. Go rent Habit. It is one of the best modern day vampire films which he stars and directs. And while you are at it, also see The Last Winter which he directed. Fuck Avatar, this is an environmental parable and ghost story all wrapped into one. All together now: Larry Fessenden!
