Horror Review

83 | Leatherface

LF post.jpg

Directors: Alexandre Bustillo & Julien Maury

Writer: Seth M. Sherwood

Synopsis: The movie begins in the mid 1950's, where we learn the Sawyer family, headed up by matriarch Lili Taylor, is up to their usual shenanigans. But when they murder the daughter of a local deputy, he responds by doing the sensible thing & taking the minor Sawyer children into state custody. When chaos erupts at the state home, a handful of wards escape (along with a nurse, who is having a terrible first day) and now it's the local deputy's job to track them down.

Stephen King is just sooo hot right now and since we'd never want to be considered "un-hip," we'll be jumping on the King-wagon to review the recently released Gerald's Game, which is now streaming on Netflix.

Director: Andy Muschietti

Writer(s): Chase Palmer, Cary Fukunaga, Gary Dauberman

Synopsis: When kids start going missing in the town of Derry, a group of kids band together and discover that a sinister clown named Pennywise may be behind all of it.

Next up, we'll be seeing a movie that will, with any luck, be very upsetting and make us feel a bit funky all day. That's right, we're seeing Darren Aronofsky's newest movie, Mother!. Go see it, throw on some Danzing, and join us in two weeks for our review!

79 | Annabelle: Creation

Director: David F. Sandberg

Writer: Gary Dauberman

Synopsis: A group of orphans, & the nun who cares for them, are invited to live in the home of the Mullins (a dollmaker & his invalid wife) in the 1950s. Once there, the precocious girls discover the dollmaker’s sad history - that his young daughter, Bee, was killed in a tragic car accident a decade before.

The orphans begin to witness strange, paranormal events in the house, which seem to be related to a hideous doll found locked away in a secret space within the dead daughter’s "off-limits" bedroom. One of the girls in particular, Janice, is plagued with visitations by the doll & Bee’s spectre, who seem to have special plans for her. Will her best friend, Linda, be able to help her before it’s too late?

Join us next time when we'll be talking about The Devil's Candy. Or as we like to call it The Tale of Ethan Embry's Ever Shifting Wig. See you then!

In theaters and VOD March 17th Directed by: Sean Byrne Starring: Ethan Embry, Shiri Appleby, Kiara Glasco, & Pruitt Taylor Vince A not-so-average family wrestles with Satan in a house from hell in this heavy metal-charged shocker from the director of The Loved Ones.

Writer/Director: Damien Power

Synopsis: Young lovebirds, Ian and Sam, go on a romantic camping trip near a secluded waterfall. Their trip is cut short when they stumble across a horrible crime.

What do you guys think of our new theme music? Pretty cool, right? Big thanks to Peter Perfect for letting us use it.

Next up, we'll be seeing what all the fuss is about with this Annabelle sequel (or prequel?). It's getting solid reviews so we're curious enough to shell out $$ to see it in theaters.

77 | The Bad Batch

Writer/Director: Ana Lily Amirpour

Synopsis: We follow Arlen, a woman who's just been deemed part of the "Bad Batch", as she struggles to adapt and survive is this unforgiving and cannibalistic new world. Along the way she is helped, hindered or both by the men she meets, including King of the Studs Jason Momoa, Keaunu Reeves & and almost unrecognizable Jim Carey. Guess they all saw *A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night* & wanted in on that action. Can't say as I blame them. Unfortunately, Amirpour's follow-up suffers many of the same problems tht befall lauded filmmakers' second features. Oh well. Go get em next time, tiger!

Next up, it's the much buzzed-about new release Killing Ground, another brutal slasher from Australia. Just check out this trailer. It looks brutal as hell. Can. Not. Wait. Get it on demand & meet us back here to discuss. See you then!
