Homewrecker (2020) is not rated, but despite the ending, I’d give it a solid PG-13 for swears, involuntary drug use, people getting knocked out, girl fights, people getting stabbed, and an incident with a pair of scissors and a tongue.
Impetigore (2019) is streaming exclusively on Shudder, and is unrated, but if I had to guess, I’d say definitely rated R for swears, people being shot, people getting sliced with swords, people getting cracked on the head, people getting stabbed, people being hung, skinless people – oh! and the end, which is so marvelously out of left field I was cheering.
The Rental (2020) is rated R for swears, sexy times, drug uses, people getting beat in the face, missing dogs, people getting stabbed, people getting bludgeoned, and the last 3 minutes which frankly have made me never wants to leave the house again.

It’s been a long time coming for Bill Preston and Ted Logan to finally unite the world with their music. Is there no better time than the totally heinous train wreck that is 2020? Bill & Ted Face the Music will release this September 1st on Premium Video on Demand (PVOD) services and in select theaters nationwide. Excellent!
Parallax (2020) is unrated, but let’s give it a PG-13 for swears, attempted suicide by drowning, some weird looking orange blood, and a rather intense car scene. This wasn’t a scary film by any stretch and other than a few computers, calling it a Sci-fi/thriller is generous.
The Beach House (2019) is not-rated, but if I had to guess I’d say PG-13 for swears, brief side boob, trippy drug use, deeply unsettling transformations, worms in feet, car crashes, and a movie that feels like the well-loved bastard child of The Fog (1980) and The Mist (2007). The Beach House is streaming exclusively on Shudder July 9, 2020
Rootwoodis unrated and is distributed by Hugh Octane Pictures. If it mattered, it might be rated PG-13 and only because of the swears, mostly spat out during intense scenery-chewing. The effects are small, if practical, it’s clearly a guy in a rubber suit, but there isn’t enough blood to justify a papercut.
Greyhound, based upon the novel ‘The Good Shepherd’ by C. S. Forester, is inspired by the real-life command of Captain Ernest Krause (played by Tom Hanks). The text richly defines the naval experience, so it’s no wonder Apple, the self-proclaimed “home of today’s most imaginative storytellers,” jumped at the opportunity to include the adaptation in their library. But the movie needs explosive technology and the big screen experience to immerse the audience fully.
From the comic book and graphic novel genius that gifted us “300” and “Sin City” is Frank Miller’s re-imagining of the Arthurian legend of Merlin, titled Cursed. Katherine Langford, of Netflix uber-popular 13 Reasons Why, stars as Nimue – destined to become the Lady of the Lake! The combination of writing, acting, and Netflix’s production power means we might be in for something special this July 17th. Huzzah!

Jon Stewart’s second feature film, Irresistible, a more Stewart-esque comedy with an interesting twist. And while that twist offers the aha moment the film is sorely lacking, the weight of its influence on our real-life political atmosphere is of little effect. Irresistible is not devoid of humor, but it’s fairly lightweight and not ground-breaking material. So why spend your afternoon streaming it? Don’t. Resist.
