Movie Review – ‘Don’t Speak’ is exactly what you think it is

In Movie Reviews, Reviews, Streaming Releases by MontiLee StormerLeave a Comment

Don’t Speak has a lot of blood and spiders and gore, and if you love that sort of thing, then step right up.Don’t Speak is Unrated but I would have to guess it would probably get a PG-13 for buckets of blood, people bleeding spiders while hung in cocoons, the body horror of having ball-bearing sized eggs laid under the skin, people running, people being torn open, people dying while choking on their own blood.

Movie Review – Netflix’s ‘Extraction’ is the rescue we need

In Movie Reviews, Reviews, Streaming Releases by Chris GirouxLeave a Comment

Extraction doesn’t feel like a Netflix movie. There’s a decent story (as action movies go) and characters you can invest in and worry for if they’ll make it to the other side of their ordeal. Yet, we still get to indulge in the over-the-top violence. Extraction gives us both worlds in an effective dose worthy of a Friday night indulgence.

TV Series – Shudder’s ‘Cursed Films’ Episode 104, 105

In Episodic Releases, Reviews, TV Reviews by MontiLee StormerLeave a Comment

In Shudder’s original 5-part documentary, Cursed Films, expect to see clips from a wide range of horror movies from classics and modern films. Episodes 104 and 105 films are different than the installments of its predecessors in that the “curses” surrounding these films are more from their tragic accidents, rather than creepy occurrences in subsequent sequels

Movie Review – ‘A Wakefield Project’ gets a ‘fail to complete’

In Movie Reviews, Reviews, Streaming Releases by MontiLee StormerLeave a Comment

is not a very good movie, It’s not even 7 mediocre short films. It’s not science fiction, it’s not horror, it’s not even a final student project cobbled from borrowed weed money. is unrated, but I would give it a solid PG-13 for swears, bloody hooks, people running, people screaming, “dead people”, menacing butcher knives, scary tattooed guys, and the headache you’ll accidentally give yourself from all of the eye-rolling. You can do better with your 88 minutes.

Movie Review – ‘The Alpha Test’ is one humans generally fail with thrilling results

In Movie Reviews, Reviews, Streaming Releases by MontiLee StormerLeave a Comment

The Alpha Test is a post-modern litmus test exploring human emotion evolution outpaced by humans’ ability to create things to catastrophically destroy themselves. The Alpha Test is unrated, call it PG-13 for swears, looooooots of blood, plenty of off-screen violence including people getting hit with crowbars, sprayed in the face with household chemicals, people getting stabbed with broken bottles, people being electrocuted, and a poor unfortunate soul being opened on the edge of a table like a beer bottle. Very satisfying.

This week we are live screening Bong Joon Ho’s Snowpiercer. This one stars Chris Evans, Tilda Swinson and Ed Harris in a nightmarish (action-packed) trip around the world in a race against a freezing planet. Why are we watching it??? I’m glad you asked! First, Bong Joon Ho absolutely dominated the Oscars this year with Parasite. Second, TNT is releasing their episodic series based on the material and with the same name, on Friday April 17th!

Movie Review – pass on the ‘Coffee & Kareem’

In Movie Reviews, Reviews, Streaming Releases by Chris Giroux1 Comment

I think most people will agree that buddy cop movies in the vein of Lethal Weapon and Rush Hour make for some of the best comedy escapes in cinema. Coffee & Kareem, from the great folks at Netflix, attempts to bottle that recipe by pairing funnyman Ed Helms (the Coffee) with teenage newcomer Terrence Little Gardenhigh (the Kareem). This ain’t that film.

TV Series – Shudder’s ‘Cursed Films’ Episode 102, 103

In Episodic Releases, Reviews, TV Reviews by MontiLee StormerLeave a Comment

In Shudder’s original 5-part documentary, Cursed Films, expect to see clips from a wide range of horror movies from classics and modern films, as well as emotional punches from cast and crew directly related to the subject titles. Gary Sherman’s emotional recounting of his work on Poltergeist III and the death of Heather O’ Rourke is terribly sad and it’s okay to hate MGM just a little bit.
