64 | Split

Director/Writer: M. Night Shyamalan

Stars: James McAvoy, Anya Taylor-Joy, Betty Buckley

Synopsis: Three teenage girls are kidnapped by a deeply disturbed man suffering from Dissociative Identity Disorder. As the girls try to figure a way out of their predicament, we learn there is a new, seriously more dangerous identity that has yet to reveal itself.


Next up, we veer off the beaten trail a tad as we review the recently released HBO documentary, Beware the Slenderman. It's a perfect blend of our two loves: horror and true crime. So go and convince someone to share their HBO Now passwork with you and check out this movie before our next episode.


Recap: HorrorHound Weekend - Cincinnati, OH

 

This was The Bloodlust's first HorrorHound weekend and it was a successful blast. Without naming names, I can say that two of the three Bloodlust attendees ending up puking (Jamie didn't!). One of The Bloodlust attendees got to meet that guy from Daredevil (Jamie did!). But on a totally, more professional note...we saw some great vendors, met some cool people, and saw some really great horror shorts (I'm going to make the statement that the feature films could've been better). Will we do HorrorHound again? You betcha! It was a really fun weekend and we look forward to meeting more of you next time!

Synopsis: On the border of Finland and Russia, 486 meters deep within the Korvatunturi mountains, lies a long-buried secret of Christmas.

Synopsis: Elias and Lukas are twin brothers who start to notice things have gone a bit amiss ever since their mother came home from facial surgery. They believe that she has been replaced by someone else and are now on a mission to find out who the intruder is. Seems like such a simple story.

30 | Sinister 2

 

Sinister 2
Director: Ciarán Foy
Writers: Scott Derrickson, C. Robert Cargill
Starring: Shannyn Sossamon, James Ransone, Robert Daniel Sloan, Dartanian Sloan
Synopsis: Picking up from where Sinister left off, now Ex Deputy So & So is tracking down and destroying all the Bughuul murder houses. But he's stopped short when he learns the next house on his list is already occupied by a woman and her two children. Not one to walk away from a family being harassed by Bughuul and his gang of evil kids, Ex Deputy So & So sticks around to help the family before it becomes too late.


Did you know there's a real-life Bughuul? Well there is and we've found him. Turns out he's been passing himself off as the lead guitarist of Slipknot. Honestly, now that we've seen the almost 100% resemblance, Bughuul is even less frightening and not all that original. I'm not even going to label which is which.


Join us next time as we "celebrate" the return of M. Night Shyamalan by watching his newest movie, The Visit. His track record is pretty spotty so we don't even have a guess as to how this new one is going to turn out. Till next time!
