    Synopsis







    This movie reminds children of their worst fear during Halloween. Bryan Singer!







    Trick ‘r Treat is an anthology film set during Halloween in suburban Ohio. Seven short stories are loosely interwoven with each other in a non-linear narrative to tell the dangers of eschewing Halloween traditions. Wearing costumes, giving out candy, and lighting Jack-o-lanterns are all a part of ancient traditions whose purpose are long forgotten, but are made… kind of apparent in this movie.







    Review of Trick 'r Treat







    Trick ‘r Treat basically accomplishes in one movie what John Carpenter wanted to do with the Halloween franchise when they made Season of the Witch. That is, telling an assortment of spooky tales set during Halloween. 







    The seven stories told throughout the film are of varying quality and complexity, but the non-linear narrative structure keeps the audience engaged and never dwells on one story long enough to bore the audience. Most of the stories do little in the way of set up, and prefer to jump right to the good scary part.







    It’s a decent film that deserves to be on the rotation during the Halloween season.

    Possessor Uncut Review

    Possessor Uncut Review

    We saw Possessor Uncut, which is a new flick released in 2020, and wow, what a disturbing masterpiece. This came highly recommended to us by our hard-f*****g artist, Dustin Goebel, and I was not let down.

    https://youtu.be/D0Gh9nOIV3w









    Synopsis







    Possessor Uncut follows Tasya (Andrea Riseborough), who is the most incredible mercenary for hire ever. 







    She works for a secret organization that uses brain-implant tech to put her consciousness into the bodies of people who can get close to important people - aka targets. Her job is to inhabit the consciousness of strangers, take control of their body, and use their body to assassinate people for, presumably, very rich corporations and clients.















    As we follow Tasya, we learn that she is the best at what she does, but also that there seems to be a time-limit on how long you can possess others before there is a danger that you can lose yourself in the process.







    As the movie progresses, we get a real look into what makes us empathetic humans, and the real ramifications of our actions if we let our moral compass slip for too long. 







    Review







    Possessor Uncut is directed by Brandon Cronenberg and is more than just an interesting concept, it’s the complete package.







    Tremendous effort has gone into setting the dark/sad mood, and Possessor Uncut presents some very f****d up ideas into what seems like a not-so-distant, real future.











    Possessor UncutWatch it on AmazonBuy Now



















    The acting and film-craft is stellar, but the imagery and ideas in this movie are so much more depraved than even the most intense gore-porn entry, because it seems like we aren’t far off from this being a potential reality.







    There were parts in this movie where I actually covered my eyes because I was fearful that I would see something that I couldn’t unsee. 







    This is definitely an artistic film, but it doesn’t hang its hat on the art. It really stands on the concept that it presents, which is the loss of privacy, and the danger of losing control of one’s self. Our inherent lean toward the voyueristic can result in the loss of self, and that may be the scariest and most insidious thing I can imagine. 







    Score







    10/10







    Final Recommendation







    If you like disturbing ideas and visuals, it doesn’t get a lot more crazy than this unless you are talking about the fringe-type movies like A Serbian Film or I Spit on Your Grave. This is a well-made movie with some incredible concepts, watch it.

    Halloween 3: Season of the Witch Review

    Halloween III: Season of the Witch is available for rent at your local Blockbuster Video.







    What do you think of, when you think of the horror franchise Halloween?







    Ok, What do you think of when you think of witches?







    Well none of that is in this movie.







    Halloween 3: Season of the Witch is a mystery wrapped in a riddle wrapped in an enigma inside a dumpster fire.

    Review of Halloween 3







    I hear a lot of talk about how Halloween 3 is a underrated gem, and that the backlash of fans expecting Michael Myers skewed the opinion of this film. The reality is, the critics got it right the first time. This film is not underrated. It is rated. It’s bad.







    A series of poor decisions, and I assume plentiful cocaine led to this mess of a movie. The characters in this film are all the type of one dimensional fodder of slasher films. Instead of entertaining the audience with frequent kills and chases, Season of the Witch tries to weave a complex mystery to sustain interest. However, instead of an intriguing mystery, we get a wacky mad libs plot of completely incongruous and random concepts. 







    Score







    2/10

    For a better time, check out Halloween II (1981) or the original, Halloween.

    The Haunting of Bly Manor Aftershow Episode 8: The Romance of Certain Old Clothes

    This is an episode where we get to learn a bit about Viola, AKA the lady of the lake. Almost the entire episode takes place in a time long lost to history, and frankly, this is my favorite episode in the series. It’s sad, mournful and has some wonderful storytelling.

5 outta 5

These guys are hilarious from their personal tangents to their not giving a crap about the easily offended with their jokes! I always wondered what it would be like if my 2 buddies and I made a podcast and now I know. You can definitely tell they are best friends and they are just having fun which makes the experience even better. Not to mention even with their tangents they still create a great experience when they review a movie, they make you wanna watch the ones you haven’t yet.

Super entertaining!

I LOVE this show! I am a huge horror movie fan and I love to listen to their thoughts on movies I know and love. The banter is fun and I find myself laughing out loud at some of the exchanges! I hope I haven’t missed it but would you consider discussing The Strangers, Last House on the Left or Funny Games? Those 3 movies stuck with me in different ways and I’m interested in hearing what you think of those movies. Thanks for the fun!

Pretty bad

Hosts are constantly going off on boring personal tangents or spending time on insignificant details of the show or movie. They struggle to actually remember the plot.
