Ranking Every “Wrong Turn” Movie

Known for its inbred cannibals, brutally gory kills, and copious amounts of unusually graphic nude/intimate scenes, the Wrong Turn franchise is truly unlike any other. What started as nothing more than a simple, straightforward slasher has evolved into a seven movie franchise that has a reputation for being trashy, which it kind of owns. So, with the release of 2021’s reboot (which is vastly different), … Continue reading Ranking Every “Wrong Turn” Movie

“A Discovery of Witches” Season 2 Episode 4 Review

After three episodes of focusing solely on Matthew and Diana in 1590s London, A Discovery of Witches took us back to present to remind us of the present threat (no pun intended), and keep track of everything else going on.  For those looking for the next step in Matthew and Diana’s plot, you’ll have to wait until next week.  But this fourth episode was intriguing … Continue reading “A Discovery of Witches” Season 2 Episode 4 Review

The Stand: “The Walk” Review

With only two episode left in the miniseries, “The Walk” both literally and figuratively advances the plot at a faster pace than we’ve seen thus far.  It simultaneously deals with the aftermath of Nadine and Harold’s betrayal, while setting up the ultimate conflict and final titular “stand”, for which the story is named.

Wrong Turn (2021) – Movie Review

If it doesn’t involved inbred cannibals, annoyingly unlikeable characters, and oodles of gratuitous nude scenes, is it even really a Wrong Turn movie?  This latest reboot from the screenwriter of the original movie (Alan McElroy) seeks to answer this question. Wrong Turn (2021) takes itself far more seriously than any of its predecessors, and while it has brutal kills and moments of unbearable tension, it … Continue reading Wrong Turn (2021) – Movie Review

Why Horror Directors Make Great Superhero Movies
