Servant: “Seánce” Review

Things just keep getting weirder and more tense on Servant!  The latest episode introduces two new characters and takes things from eccentric and fun weird to downright disturbing pretty quickly… Live In Nurses Picking up where last week left off, the live-in nurses Dorothy hired Bev and Bobbie are just as hilariously strange and eccentric as you’d expect from this series.  They open with a … Continue reading Servant: “Seánce” Review

“The Following” 10 Years Later – A Violent Series Audiences Weren’t Ready For

Police procedurals are nothing new when it comes to television, going all the way back to the 1960’s and even before.  So with series like Law and Order, CSI, NCIS (and all of their collective spinoffs), and Criminal Minds, audiences were certainly familiar with crime thrillers about serial killers and the teams that try to apprehend them. However, when The Following premiered in January of … Continue reading “The Following” 10 Years Later – A Violent Series Audiences Weren’t Ready For

“Skinamarink”: An Experimental Assault on the Senses [Review]

Critics will often describe a film as an “experience”.  And while that descriptor can very easily be overused, Skinamarink is perhaps the only movie upon which that term fits aptly. The latest Shudder original (released in theaters now and due out on the platform later this year) is truly unlike anything you’ve seen before.  That said, it will inevitably be polarizing and you definitely have … Continue reading “Skinamarink”: An Experimental Assault on the Senses [Review]

Philadelphia in Fall Picking up a few months after Dorothy’s bone-breaking fall, things at the Turner house seem great for Leanne.  She’s chipper … Continue reading Servant: “Pigeon” Review

“M3GAN” is Equal Parts Campy Fun and Creepy Doll Horror [Review]

The most frightening thing about Artificial Intelligence (AI) is that it doesn’t necessarily have to turn “evil” in order to cause harm to humans.  It merely needs to think that causing harm to humans is a necessary byproduct to achieving its goal.  In essence, it will do exactly as we humans program it to do, and in doing so, will cause harm without remorse in … Continue reading “M3GAN” is Equal Parts Campy Fun and Creepy Doll Horror [Review]

“Burial” – Movie Review

The “mystery” surrounding Hitler’s fate at the end of WWII has long been the fodder of conspiracy theorists going back decades.  The official historical record states that he committed suicide in his bunker as Soviet forces were capturing the city.  However, given that his body was never found, many alleged that Hitler actually survived and escaped. This decades-long debate is the subject of Shudder’s latest … Continue reading “Burial” – Movie Review
