Darkness Falls (2019) is unrated but if I had to guess, I’d say Rated R for the longest slowest ten-minute murder, non-consensual drug use, people getting shot, people getting beat up, and women getting suicided (their word).
The Candy Witch feels like it wanted to be a revenge movie. That’s not what The Candy Witch is (at all), but if you pretend for the first 65 minutes it helps. It is unrated but would be Rated R for death by chocolate, death by candy floss, eye-gouging, people getting screamed at, people getting stabbed people getting strangled, really awkward sexytimes, and a poke in the junk.
Soul City is a limited television series streaming exclusively on Topic. It’s unrated, but I would guess we’re looking at TV: 14-DLSV, for swears and intense scenes, brief implied sexytimes, booze, and some rather intense feelings of dread, but no overt blood or guts. This is good starter horror for those easily intimidated, but still satisfying for us veterans.
Scream, Queen! My Nightmare on Elm Street (2019) is an unrated documentary with scenes from many such slasher classics. There will also be scenes depicting lots of blood, entrails, flogging with wet towels, naked butts, and the dance from Jesse’s pop toy that will haunt our dreams forever.
Blood Quantum (2019) is unrated, but if I have to guess, I’d say Rated R for people getting shot, people being chewed on, a home birth gone wrong, dog and fish euthanasia, people falling in a thresher, lots of blood and intestines, a suicide, more blood, and a sword in the face.
From the creators of The Office comes Space Force, a parody of Agent Orange’s extension of the armed forces. With Steve Carrell captaining this ship, we should be in for one hell of a comedic trip around the moon!
Everyone’s favorite playground game is updated for reality junkies as contestants battle ‘taggers’ in a contest of speed, athleticism, and endurance.
For a short, practically one-set movie, everything about Cry for the Bad Man hums with the tension and gory surprises. Its Unrated, but if I had to guess, I’d say Rated R for swears, shots to head, shots to the gut, shots to the hand, knives to the hand, slapping, punching, and lots and lots of blood. The practical effects were really very good.
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
