“Dashcam” – Movie Review

While the world remained in indefinite lockdown during the first half of 2020, British writer/director Rob Savage took the anxieties and uncertainties we all felt and turned it into an award winning 50 minute film called Host.  Shot entirely over Zoom during the first wave of quarantine, Host perfectly captured what it felt like during that time, while also delivering a legitimately creepy supernatural thriller. … Continue reading “Dashcam” – Movie Review

“The Forever Purge” – Movie Review

What began as a home invasion film with a twist has grown into one of the most over the top, brutally violent, and socially relevant action/horror franchises ever seen. After the incredibly popular Purge: Election Year, we’ve gotten a prequel movie with The First Purge, and a prequel series with the Purge TV show on USA. But we’ve never gotten a proper sequel that followed … Continue reading “The Forever Purge” – Movie Review

Creative Ways to Spend Purge Night (Other Than Murdering)

Other than an internal sense of morality, what’s honestly stopping people from committing crimes?  The Purge franchise has always examined this idea, portraying a nation devoid of laws for 12 continuous hours. And while murder seems to be the go to crime for just about every character in the series, there are honestly much more creative (and productive) ways to spend Purge Night.  So we … Continue reading Creative Ways to Spend Purge Night (Other Than Murdering)

How Leigh Whannell Made “The Invisible Man” Scary Again

Between 2010’s The Wolfman, 2014’s Dracula Untold, and 2017’s The Mummy, Universal has tried (and failed) several times to launch what would be their “Dark Universe”.  And while Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible-inspired Mummy film seemed to be the nail in the coffin (no pun intended), Universal still eventually found success rebranding one of their old properties. And the reason is largely due to Leigh Whannell.  … Continue reading How Leigh Whannell Made “The Invisible Man” Scary Again

Could the Purge Ever Really Happen?

Back in 2013, The Purge tapped into that dark part of us that we dare not speak of. Who hasn’t fantasized for a second about what they would do to someone who wronged them if there were no consequences? Surely the vast majority of people would never actually harm someone, but the thought it is there, however briefly. And upon the release of the first … Continue reading Could the Purge Ever Really Happen?

“The Invisible Man” – Movie Review (Spoiler Free)

Screenwriter/director Leigh Whannell has proven once again that he can tell a compelling story that’s tense, thought-provoking, all while … Continue reading “The Invisible Man” – Movie Review (Spoiler Free)
