“Countdown” – Movie Review

They say that death and taxes are the only things from which we cannot escape.  However, one could commit tax evasion by not paying them, so ultimately, death is the only inevitable force in the universe. But would knowing the exact date and time change our perspective?  It’s a truly fascinating and thought-provoking concept, one that Countdown attempts to explore, but unfortunately fails miserably at.  … Continue reading “Countdown” – Movie Review

Could The Grudge (2020) Be the Start of a New Horror Movie Universe?

Earlier today, Sony dropped its first trailer for the upcoming Grudge reboot, due out in January 2020.  And while the trailer does reek of generic “PG-13” horror (despite the film’s actual “R” rating), it has some very larger implications that make it more than any typical horror remake.  Between its unique setting, and connection to the other films, it could very well be the beginning … Continue reading Could The Grudge (2020) Be the Start of a New Horror Movie Universe?

AHS 1984: “Episode 100” Review (Spoilers)

In many ways, last week’s “Red Dawn” episode felt like it could have been the ending to this short miniseries.  It brought about the end of a 5 episode sequence almost told in real time as we saw our cast of counselors fighting off two serial killers, along with a few betraying psychopaths in their own midst. Not only does this episode mark AHS’s 100th, … Continue reading AHS 1984: “Episode 100” Review (Spoilers)
