it comes post.jpeg

Writer/Director: Trey Edward Shults

Synopsis: A family struggles to get by in their remote home after a mysterious illness shuts down the rest of the country. Our first introduction to this family is one that perfectly illustrates this brutal, uncertain new world in which they're living. When they decide to allow another family to take shelter in their home with them, we are left to wonder whether it's actually any safer inside the house.


Next up, we'll be reviewing We Go On, a movie from the creators of underappreciated horror flick, Yellowbrickroad. We're pretty excited to finally see another movie from these folks so join us, won't you?

Our Log Does Not Judge | Part 5

In part 5, Coop makes his way to Dougie's office somehow.  I'd like to think if I showed up to work semi-comatose my coworkers would notice. On second thought, maybe it'd be better if they didn't.  We also find out what the hell Jacoby's up to with all those shovels.  

Also, Evil Coop creeps everybody out, we go to the diner & meet Shelley's Laura Palmer-esque daughter & lots of people want Dougie Jones dead.  Let's discuss.

Our Log Does Not Judge | Part 3

We hope you can hang in there with us through the madness that is Part 3.  Travel through space & electrical outlets with regular Coop!  Barf up immense amounts of yellow biohazard material with Evil Coop!  And visit a prostitute named Jade with an all-new Coop - Dougie Jones?  

For those of you feeling confused - we had a little technical difficulty in uploading the epic two-part recap, so I had to break it into two separate episodes. The second half will be ready shortly. Sorry bout that!

 

73 | A Dark Song

Writer/Director: Liam Gavin

Synopsis: A grieving woman hires an occultist to help her perform a ritual, which will allow her to speak with her guardian angel, who will grant her one request: to speak to her dead son. Or so we are lead to believe. Unfortunately, she's not completely upfront about her motives and it causes more than a few kinks in the plan.


Next time you hear from us, we'll be finally discussing what, exactly, comes at night. This new flick from A24, which is actually called It Comes at Night and stars Joel Edgerton, is getting a fair amount of hype so, if it's playing near you, go check it out and then meet us back here in a couple weeks!

Our Log Does Not Judge | Parts 1 & 2

Holy crap it's actually happening. That gum we liked came back in style! Join The Bloodlust's resident Twin Peaks fanatics as we dig in to each new chapter like kids on Christmas morning. Only instead of teddy bears & train sets we get talking sculptures & Michael Cera doing a Marlon Brando impression. And we absolutely love it baby, yeah!

Seriously, tell us your thoughts so far. Up next, part 3!

 Welcome to Twin Peaks

72 | Train to Busan

TTB post.jpg

Writer/Director: Yeon Sang-ho

Synopsis: A busy hedge fund manager agrees to take his young daughter to visit her mother on her birthday. On the way to the train station they notice lots of emergency & army vehicles, but don’t pay much attention. Too bad, b/c a viral outbreak is causing people to rise from the dead & go after the living. And one of them just got on the train with them. In addition to the father-daughter team we meet a very pregnant woman & her husband, a high school baseball team & their one cheerleader, & two elderly sisters, among others. Will they make it to their destination, & what will be waiting for them when they get there?

Director Yeon Sang-ho made an earlier, animated prequel to Train to Busan called Seoul Station, which is said to take place one day prior to the events in Train to Busan.


For our next episode we'll be reviewing Irish film A Dark Song, about Aleister Crowley-style magic rituals. Sounds intriguing, right? Check it out on VOD & join us back here in two weeks to discuss.


71 | The Void

71 | The Void

**Writer/Director**: Jeremy Gillespie & Steven Kostanski

**Synopsis**: Sheriff’s deputy, Daniel, is quietly trying to wait out the end of his shift when he notices an injured man stumbling out of the woods. After taking the man to a nearly empty hospital, on the verge of closing forever, a series of incredibly stranges events begin to take place. It's difficult to determine which is the bigger danger, the inexplicable monster roaming the halls, or the ominous group of costumed, knife-wielding figures, surrounding the hospital, preventing anyone from excaping. You'll have to settle-in and buckle-down for this movie because shit gets crazy (in the most wonderful way possible).

70 | The Blackcoat's Daughter

70 | The Blackcoat's Daughter

Writer/Director: Osgood Perkins

Synopsis: Students, Kat & Rose, are left behind at their catholic boarding school over break after their parents fail to pick them up. Alone with only a couple nuns to look after them, Rose begins to suspect something might be wrong with the quiet, kinda odd Kat.
In a separate plot line we follow Joan, who appears to have escaped from a hospital of some kind. A good-intentioned couple offers her a ride, & we discover that their path seems to be heading in the direction of the boarding school.
