Movie Review – ‘The Candy Witch’ is licorice when you wanted cherry

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

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.

TV Review – ‘Soul City’ is the love child of ‘Twilight Zone’ and ‘Tales from the Hood’

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

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.

Movie Review – ‘Cry for the Bad Man’ is Southern Gothic in a grindhouse package

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

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.

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
