The House That Jack Built Review

12/5/2018
More
The House that Jack Built isn’t getting a wide release until December 14th, but we went to a one night only showing of the director’s cut a month early at the Cinema 21 in Portland. So this is a rare instance where we can provide a review well in advance of a wide release. The film tells the story of an unassuming, yet prolific serial killer named Jack. It's told through a series of 5 short vignettes of some of his notable kills. It’s told over the course of 12 years from the mid-late 70’s...

The Ritual Review

11/28/2018
More
ALL HAIL NETFLIX! Now that we have that out of the way let’s talk about The Ritual, a Netflix original movie that was released on the streaming platform in February of 2018. I can’t believe that movies of this caliber, that is to say, theatrical release worthy movies, are created in the quiet depths of a streaming platform. I didn’t hear much about the production of this movie. Instead, it just showed up on my Netflix suggestion bar, and I watched it. There must be a better way to hype these...

Overlord Review

More
If you want to watch Overlord, please consider renting or purchasing the movie through this amazon linkto help us support the podcast. Overlord was fun, very loud, and not to be taken too seriously. Overlord is a fun action-horror movie with intense emphasis on disturbing body horror and super stereotypical Nazi bad guys. It’s got everything you need for an action movie - incredible sound, crazy intense physical fights, gun battles, chase scenes, you name it. It also has plenty of disturbing...

John Carpenter’s original Halloween released in 1978 is a pillar of the horror movie genre.

Hell Fest Review

10/3/2018
More
Hell Fest is a traveling horror night that rolls into town and a group of friends get VIP passes to go and enjoy the spooks. Think of it as a haunted house that covers an entire theme park. Little do they know that hidden among the park employees is a masked killer that picks off visitors that aren’t scared. Hell Fest is Directed by Gregory Plotkin, and I feel he took a huge Plotkin on the slasher genre. Plotkin has spent most of his career as an editor, most notably Second assistant editor...

If you want to watch The Predator, please consider renting or purchasing the movie through this amazon link to help us support the podcast. When was the last time that you had a total blast watching a movie? For me it was this weekend at The Predator. This movie is a blast from start to finish. While not technically a horror movie, The Predator is tied to a “horror/action/sci-fi” franchise that is subsequently tied to the Alien franchise. If you have seen any of the other movies in the...

The Meg is a run-of-the-mill, but well-executed monster movie starring Jason Statham and the sovereign nation of China.

He is brought out of retirement after another diving...

If you want to watch Slender Man, please consider renting or purchasing the movie through this amazon link to help us support the podcast. The hardest part about watching Slender Man, for me, is having to sit down and write about it now. Don’t get me wrong, the watching of the movie was not fun in any way, shape, or form. I am having a hard time wrapping my head around the individual parts of this movie because there really weren’t any. It was one big confusing mess that director Sylvain...

Unfriended: Dark Web is the sequel to the 2014 movie, Unfriended, and if you saw the first movie you might be bracing for impact – don’t.

There isn’t much else that ties this sequel to its predecessor, which is a...

If you want to watch The Devil's Doorway consider renting or purchasing the movie through this link to help us support the podcast. This found footage movie focuses on one of Ireland’s Magdalene Laundries, which you would think would provide enough basis for solid terror to be spooky on its own. As it turns out, The Devil’s Doorway is not terribly spooky, it’s not even spoopy, it just kind of is. This movie focuses on two priests who are sent to investigate some reports of miracles that were...
