Halloween Party

Directed by Jay Dahl. With Amy Groening, T. Thomason, Marietta Laan, Shelley Thompson. A college student unwittingly releases terrifying entities from her school’s past via a Halloween themed computer meme. The opening scenes of this movie made me feel like it’s a Lifetime Channel low budget, no effort film, but then the first death happens and I’m here to tell you, this is suspense done right.

Sarah Cooper: Everything’s Fine

Directed by Natasha Lyonne. With Winona Ryder, Aubrey Plaza, Marisa Tomei, Ben Stiller. A variety special full of issues of politics, race, gender and class. Sarah will also be joined by special guests. I’m a big fan of her work on the tic-tok and am very happy to see that she’s equally successful on the Netflix as well. Hilarious and ready to amuse you with social and political commentary that’s just on the line of what I think people will recognize as satire. Buy On Amazon!

Official Secrets

Directed by Gavin Hood. With Keira Knightley, Matt Smith, Matthew Goode, Rhys Ifans. The true story of a British whistleblower who leaked information to the press about an illegal NSA spy operation designed to push the UN Security Council into sanctioning the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Very well done, I wish they had highlighted the protests that happened at the time more. Want to know why to never vote for a Republican again? here’s one of the major ones, they lied about a reason to go to war and hundreds of thousands of people died and we’re STILL involved in...

12 Hour Shift

Directed by Brea Grant. With Angela Bettis, David Arquette, Chloe Farnworth, Mick Foley. Bodies start to pile up when a drug-user nurse and her cousin try to find a replacement kidney for an organ trafficker. Extremely dark comedy that’s perfect for Halloween. It’s actually not Halloween related, but it’s good for the holiday due to how incredibly disgusting part of it is. Buy On Amazon!

2067

Directed by Seth Larney. With Kodi Smit-McPhee, Ryan Kwanten, Sana’a Shaik, Deborah Mailman. One man’s journey to the future to save a dying world. Oh time travel, when will you ever be interesting again to me? I like what they did in the film, and the world that they build is among the most visually interesting that I’ve seen in a while, though the story is familiar to post-apocalyptic story fans.

The Sure Thing

Directed by Rob Reiner. With John Cusack, Daphne Zuniga, Anthony Edwards, Boyd Gaines. Walter Gibson is a university freshman going through a dry spell. His old buddy arranges a “sure thing” for him in California. Gibson and his classmate Allison then take a long road trip out to Cali, and both foil each other’s plans. The fourth film by Rob Reiner, and incidentally also the fourth film for a very young John Cusak, who looked young enough to be in high school and not college, but that’s just his baby faced good looks doing their part. There’s a great bit...

Robin’s Wish

Directed by Tylor Norwood. With Susan Schneider, Shawn Levy, John R. Montgomery, Rick Overton. An intimate portrait of Robin Williams and his invulnerable spirit, Robin’s Wish is the story of what really happened to one of the greatest entertainers of all time – and what his mind was fighting. I miss having Robin Williams in the world, he was an agent for good and his passing was a loss to everyone. “Robin’s Wish” is a sad, but well made look at his final years, he slow decline, and the choices that he made that ultimately resulted in him leaving the...

Summer of 84

Directed by Fran├žois Simard, Anouk Whissell, Yoann-Karl Whissell. With Graham Verchere, Judah Lewis, Caleb Emery, Cory Gruter-Andrew. After suspecting that their police officer neighbor is a serial killer, a group of teenage friends spend their summer spying on him and gathering evidence, but as they get closer to discovering the truth, things get dangerous. not going to spoil anything here, so let me just tell you: this is a great movie with perfectly done suspense, all made even better by a soundtrack by Le Matos, of Turbo Kid fame.

Society

Directed by Brian Yuzna. With Billy Warlock, Concetta D’Agnese, Ben Slack, Evan Richards. An ordinary teenage boy discovers his family is part of a gruesome orgy cult for the social elite. A solidly b-level movie that outdoes itself in the special effect deaprtment, with a soundtrack that’s honestly one of the best parts of the film. I ran into an advertisement for the movie on the back of a comic book that I was bagging and boarding a while ago and the poster seemed interesting enough to look up. It turned out to be a perfectly campy body horror film...

Leprechaun 2

Directed by Rodman Flender. With Warwick Davis, Charlie Heath, Shevonne Durkin, Sandy Baron. On his one thousandth birthday, an evil leprechaun selects the descendant of one of his slaves to have as his bride, leaving it up to the girl’s boyfriend to save her. Surprisingly better than the first, but still a horribly deliciously corny film with much better special effects this time around. There’s a tooth pulling scene towards the first act that made me cringe in horror more than the entire first move! Buy On Amazon!
