“See For Me” – Movie Review

We rely on our five senses to inform us about the world around us.  And while not everyone has all five, those that don’t can often find ways to use their other ones to greater advantage.  Shudder’s latest exclusive home invasion thriller See For Me taps into that idea.  Featuring an admittedly tried and true setup, it has enough creativity and twists to put a … Continue reading “See For Me” – Movie Review

“Night’s End” – Movie Review

Isolation and horror have gone hand in hand for decades.  Films like The Shining, Misery, The Thing, Alien, and countless others have utilized the characters’ isolation from the outside world as a way for the horror to spread.  Shudder’s latest original film, Night’s End follows in the footsteps as far as thematic elements go.  However its execution is far different (not in a good way) … Continue reading “Night’s End” – Movie Review

“The Spine of Night” – A Deep and Visually Fascinating Piece of Dark Fantasy/Horror

Knowledge is a powerful tool and those who wield can either do so with good or ill intent.  Promote it and a society can elevate, hoard and gate-keep it and a single person can grow too powerful.  It is this very idea that Shudder’s latest exclusive film, The Spine of Night seeks to explore. Far from your typical animated film, The Spine of Night is … Continue reading “The Spine of Night” – A Deep and Visually Fascinating Piece of Dark Fantasy/Horror

The Bunker Game – Movie Review

Through the lens of entertainment, it’s easy to look at history as just a prop or background setting to create new stories.  However, we must never forget that the past really happened and that with it comes many scars and traumas.  This idea is at the forefront of the latest Shudder Exclusive, The Bunker Game. Alternate History (Minor Spoilers) Opening with a fake newsreel that … Continue reading The Bunker Game – Movie Review

“The Seed” – Movie Review

If there’s anything we’ve learned from sci-fi movies, it’s to never mess with anything that falls out of the sky.  Shudder’s latest original movie, The Seed, takes a more comedic and intentionally campy approach to this subject matter.  And the result is very much a mixed bag… Weekend Getaway We begin with three friends, Charlotte, Deidre, and Heather as they stay in a secluded house … Continue reading “The Seed” – Movie Review

“The Scary of Sixty-First” (Movie Review)

As a horror fan, one must get accustomed to films that are unique, bizarre, and sometimes downright strange.  To call the latest Shudder Exclusive The Scary of Sixty-First bizarre would be the understatement of the century. Ever since launching Halloween Year-Round in 2019, I’ve reviewed my share of strange and bad movies, but none have made me question my own logic and sanity quite like … Continue reading “The Scary of Sixty-First” (Movie Review)

“Hellbender” – Movie Review

Not to be confused with the absurd 2012 horror-comedy Hellbenders, Shudder’s latest original movie Hellbender is a family affair in every sense of the word.  Written, directed, shot, and starring the Adams family (no not Gomez and Morticia), this movie manages to be subtle and dramatic, but also incredibly creepy and surreal. Sheltered Existence After a legitimately badass opening scene taking place many years in … Continue reading “Hellbender” – Movie Review

“They Live in the Grey” – Movie Review

With a title like They Live in the Grey, one might expect a crossover sequel where a famous wrestler with sunglasses fights wolves with Liam Neeson.  Awesome as that may sound, the latest Shudder original is far from it, and in fact it’s far better.  Equally chilling and compelling, They Live in a Grey dabbles in supernatural horror while exploring very relatable themes of grief, … Continue reading “They Live in the Grey” – Movie Review

“Slapface” – Movie Review

Grief can often overwhelm a person to the point that processing one’s feelings is akin to contending with a literal monster.  At least that’s the exploration of Shudder’s latest original movie Slapface.  Blending elements of family drama, coming of age themes, and monster horror, Slapface seeks to a face to grief itself, and that face is a grotesque one. Keeping the Family Together Following the … Continue reading “Slapface” – Movie Review

“For the Sake of Vicious” – Movie Review

When pushed far enough, there’s no telling what acts of brutality an ordinary person is capable of.  Shudder’s latest exclusive film For the Sake of Vicious takes an ordinary Halloween night, and turns it into an evening of disturbing allegations, and gruesome violence perpetrated by people who never imagined they’d be doing so. Getting to the Truth Following a long and exhausting shift, nurse Romina … Continue reading “For the Sake of Vicious” – Movie Review
