Movie Review: HEREDITARY (2018)

HEREDITARY, the feature film debut from director Ari Aster, is a film that has left me speechless, emotionally scarred, and terrified of dark corners. The film stars Toni Collette (The Sixth Sense), Gabriel Byrne (The Usual Suspects), Alex Wolff (My Friend Dahmer), and newcomer, Milly Shapiro. 

Indie Horror Movie Review: SHHHH!

Indie Horror Movie Review: SHHHH!

Jason Rutherford and his crew have been working on bringing SHHH! to life for a least the past five years and now it is finally available for the world to see on Amazon Prime, Google Play, and iTunes. As a former employee of Kim's Video and Troma Entertainment, I was thoroughly entertained by the raunchy humor and overall exploitation vibe the film presents. Starring a veritable who's who of horror, any exploitation fan will be delighted with SHHH!

Alamo Drafthouse's Weird Wednesday Presents DREDD 3D

Alamo Drafthouse's Weird Wednesday Presents DREDD 3D

Before we get started with this review I would like to somewhat shamefully admit that the last movie I saw in 3-D was Maleficent at the Mall of Georgia Regal Cinemas over a vacation however many years ago because my cousin wanted to see it. I have never really been too excited about 3-D movies and usually find them to be too expensive and gimmicky. 

Indie Horror Movie Review: IRRATIONAL FEAR (2017)

Indie Horror Movie Review: IRRATIONAL FEAR (2017)

Fears. We all have them, irrational or not. But it's how we choose to accept a cure that sets the tone for this campy, sometimes nostalgic Indie film directed by Hunter Johnson and co-written by Kevin Sommerfield.

Scream Factory Review: IT'S ALIVE TRILOGY

Scream Factory Review: IT'S ALIVE TRILOGY

If you’ve been reading my reviews for awhile, you will know that I’m just beginning my dive into most B-horror movies of the 70's and 80's. My latest quest brought me to iconic cult filmmaker Larry Cohen’s IT’S ALIVE trilogy. Having been familiar with the title, and the title alone, I prepared myself for to binge watch so that I could finally understand why this trilogy was so beloved. I came out the other end with a better appreciation for Cohen’s films, practical effects and the nostalgia that surrounds so many 80's horror films.

Alamo Drafthouse Weird Wednesdays Presents SPELLCASTER

Alamo Drafthouse Weird Wednesdays Presents SPELLCASTER

I had no idea initially what to expect from SPELLCASTER when taking my seat in theater one of Alamo Drafthouse Brooklyn on Wednesday May 9th. I knew it was an MTV-era take on Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory starring Adam Ant, my favorite dandy highwayman, and the girl from the “Take on Me” music video (her name is actually Bunty Bailey). I knew from seeing the trailer that this was high 80’s trash and I was extremely excited to see it on the big screen. 

Alamo Drafthouse Terror Tuesdays Presents THE RAGE: CARRIE 2 (1999)

Alamo Drafthouse Terror Tuesdays Presents THE RAGE: CARRIE 2 (1999)

I have been tasked with the super fun “job” of seeing almost every entry of Alamo Drafthouse Brooklyn’s Terror Tuesday’s and Weird Wednesdays this month. First of all, I have always been a fan of The Alamo Drafthouse since the initial texter got thrown out of their Austin theater. People talking or playing around on their phones during a movie in the theater is pretty much the bane of my existence, plus the ability to drink in the movie theater without sneaking a beer in your purse (not that I have EVER done such a thing) is always a plus.
