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.
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.
This week we are live screening Extraction, starring Chris Hemsworth as Tyler Rake. Netflix’s big action flick produced by Avengers: Endgame directors, The Russo Bros., debuts this Friday…but you should most definitely wait to watch it with us! The latest ‘Chatting During the Movie’ event is scheduled for this Saturday, April 25th, 2020 at 10:00 PM ET.
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
This week we are live screening Bad Boys, starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. With the release of Bad Boys for Life on Blu-ray and DVD next Tuesday April 14th, 2020, we thought it’s be a great time to revisit the gem that started it all.
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.
Quibi joins the streaming game with its revolutionary Turnstyle feature and content featuring Chris Hemsworth, LeBron James, Reese Witherspoon, and many others. With a free 90-day trial in the month of April (2020), the mobile-only platform hopes to lure in subscribers and eventually own a piece of the ever-growing cord-cutting pie.
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!
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.
For the mere price of a subscription, Shudder’s original documentary, Cursed Films, is well worth your time. These may not be telling some of us what we don’t already know, but hearing these set stories first hand adds academic legitimacy to the legends we’ve read all over the internet and collected in one place.
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.
