Cruella (2021) is rated PG-13 for super minor swears, people falling from cliffs, crimes against bystanders, dog napping, boozing it up, and characters being chased by dogs with cgi-animated snarls.
The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It (2021) is Rated R for people getting stabbed, totems made from bones, medical emergencies, children in grotesque positions, lots of screaming, suicide, cultists, and the usual gruesome face altering than can only come from demonic possession.
The 100 Candles Game(2020) is unrated, but it’s direct to video on demand, so call it a soft R with lots of blood, stabbing, demons, child endangerment, creepy kids, exorcism, lots and lots and lots of swears
A Quiet Place Part II (2021) is rated PG-13 for aliens, car crashes, bus crashes, people being eaten, people being snatched off of roads, legs in bear traps, near drownings, explosions, crying babies, alien ear anatomy, and bludgeoning.
Spiral: From the Book of Saw (2021) is rated R for people getting hit with trains, fists, and projectile glass, finger-ectomies, orphaned human flesh, broken bones, lots of shootings, lots of blood, rotting pigs, and a marionette that could never be Billy. If you’re still a little raw from the recent spate of real cops acting bady, maybe sit this one out. It’s not the closure you’re expecting.
The Banishing (2020) is streaming exclusively on Shudder and is unrated, but give it a solid R for the stabbings, the cellar sexytimes, the country road beatings, and lots of screaming in the last 20 minutes.
Wrath of Man is Rated R for swears, and lots and lots of gunplay. People get shot a lot.

The big balls are back, baby! ‘I like big balls, and I cannot lie’ would have been a more fun pilot title, but what’s most important is that America’s favorite obstacle course competition series Wipeout is back with TBS’s reboot of the late 2000’s hit game show. Wipeout airs Thursdays at 9/8c on TBS, with the debut episode set to air on April 1st.
Look. I could just be fatigued by social distancing and our shutdown existence, but I was hanging on the edge of my recliner from beginning to end. Is Godzilla vs. Kong perfect? Nope. But it is the best entry and a most fitting end to the franchise. Adam Wingard created the thing we wanted all along: big, dumb, popcorn-chomping monster fights that we can see and feel (with the proper conditions).
Them, an Amazon Studio Series, premiers on Amazon Prime April 9, 2021. Everyone smokes, there’s day drinking, rampant racist gaslighting, and the N-word is dropped more than can be considered casual. Them will not be for everyone. This film premiered at SXSW Online on March 18, 2021.
