Movie Review: Mimesis

YAY! A zombie movie review this week. Well, Mimesis is kind of a zombie movie. Here’s what it’s about: “A group of horror fans find themselves unwilling participants in a nightmarish role playing game that pays homage to a classic horror film.” The ‘classic horror film’ is Night of the Living Dead. What’s hilarious is that the description for the movie is a spoiler. It’s better to go into this movie having not read that … Read more

Movie Review: Stitches

I’ve got a good one for you this week, although it’s not a zombie movie. Stitches had me laughing out loud, and here’s what it’s about: “The clumsy and unfunny clown Richard “Stitches” Grindle goes to the birthday party of little Tom and the boy and his friends play a prank with Stitches, tying his shoelaces. Stitches slips, falls and dies. Six years later, Tom gives a birthday party for his friends at home and … Read more

Documentary Review: Apocalypse: Staline

Doing something different this week because we recently watched the three part documentary, Apocalypse: Staline on the American Hero Channel, and I came away terrified. Here’s what it’s about: “Joseph Stalin’s rise to power while killing a FUCK load of innocent human beings.” That happens to be my synopsis for the show in case you didn’t notice. You know that saying, “Stranger than fiction,” well, it also works for “More horrific than fiction.” This documentary … Read more

Movie Review: Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens

Bet you weren’t surprised to see this week’s review is Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens. In case you’ve been hiding under a rock and have never seen a Sharknado movie, here’s what it’s about: “Fin, his family and the cosmos have been blissfully sharknado-free in the five years since the most recent attack, but now sharks and tornadoes are being whipped up in unexpected ways and places.” In preparation for this review, I re-watched Sharknado … Read more

TV Review: Preacher

I’m in a very confused state of mind going into this week’s review. It’s Preacher, the new AMC show, that has me perplexed. Here’s what it’s about: “What if an angel and a demon procreate? What would that offspring be? Would it be holy or demonic or both? Preacher Is that tale. The offspring has no body, just a soul. That soul needs a body and chose Jessie. A preacher from Texas with a loss … Read more

Movie Review: The Lazarus Effect

WOW! I managed to write reviews two weeks in a row. Unfortunately I’ve got another boring one for ya, The Lazarus Effect. Here’s what it’s about: “THE LAZARUS EFFECT follows a group of researchers led by Frank and his fiancé Zoe who’ve achieved the unimaginable – bringing the dead back to life. After a successful, yet unsanctioned, trial on a newly deceased animal, the team is ready to unveil their breakthrough to the world. When … Read more

Movie Review: It Follows

Hey, I’m back with a bad one, It Follows. Here’s what it’s about: “A young woman is followed by an unknown supernatural force after a sexual encounter.” I happened upon It Follows while browsing for horror movies on cable. There was no rating for the movie, so I took my chances based on the description. I was sadly disappointed and quickly lost interest. This could have been a good teen scream movie based on the … Read more

Movie Review: Kill Zombie (a.k.a Zombibi)

*SQUEAL* I found another zombie movie I loved! Here’s what Kill Zombie is about: “The bizarre story takes place in Amsterdam-West, where a virus turns people into bloodthirsty zombies. Although much blood is flowing and many limbs chopped off, there is a lot to laugh at in this bizarre horror comedy.” Kill Zombie is a horror comedy movie, so of course it was a perfect choice to watch one afternoon I was feeling particularly low. … Read more

TV Series Review: Fear the Walking Dead (Season 2)

I’m happy to say that Fear the Walking Dead has improved. If you read my review of the first season, you know I thought it totally sucked, but I had high hopes that the show would improve, and it did. Once they got on the boat, they had a lot of time to think about their circumstances, and their reactions to their new world were much better portrayed in season 2, although it did take … Read more

Movie Review: Burying the Ex

This week’s movie is Burying the Ex. Here’s what it’s about: “When Max (Yelchin) learns that his new live-in girlfriend, Evelyn (Greene) is controlling and manipulative, he is afraid to end the relationship. However, fate occurs and Evelyn is killed in a freak accident. A couple months have passed and Max meets his dream girl, Olivia (Daddario). The new romance gets tricky when Evelyn comes back from the grave and insists on continuing their once … Read more

Movie Review: He Never Died

This week’s movie is He Never Died, and I enjoyed this one. Here’s what it’s about: “Jack’s in a rut. Depression and severe anti-social behavior has whittled down his existence to sleeping and watching television. Seeing the human race as little more than meat with a pulse, Jack has no interest to bond with anyone. There’s little purpose for him to make friends with someone he’d eventually eat or outlive by more than a millennia. … Read more

Movie Review: Exists

Sorry for taking last week off. It was a crazy week. This week’s movie is Exists, and I have mixed feelings about this one. Here’s what it’s about: “For five friends, it was a chance for a summer getaway- a weekend of camping in the Texas Big Thicket. But visions of a carefree vacation are shattered with an accident on a dark and desolate country road. In the wake of the accident, a bloodcurdling force … Read more

Movie Review: Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead

Another zombie movie this week. Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead has been sitting in my Netflix queue for nearly a year and I’m sorry I didn’t watch it sooner. Here’s what it’s about: “Barry is a talented mechanic and family man whose life is torn apart on the eve of a zombie apocalypse. His sister, Brooke, is kidnapped by a sinister team of gas-mask wearing soldiers & experimented on by a psychotic doctor. While Brooke … Read more

Movie Review: Stalled

FINALLY, another zombie movie for my ‘best of’ list. Stalled was awesome! Here’s what it’s about: “A janitor gets trapped in a women’s restroom and encounters an all-out attack by a horde of zombies.” This movie is getting trashed by people for poor acting and cinematography, and all around bad taste. Plus it’s choppy in spots with no real explanation for why everyone turned into zombies. So why did I love it so much? Dan … Read more

Movie Review: State of Emergency

I’m back on low-rated, zombie movies for a few weeks starting with State of Emergency. Here’s what it’s about: “Chaos consumes a small town when a chemical facility explodes releasing a deadly toxin. Moments after the leak, the town’s residents show signs of mutation, causing the military to quarantine the area leaving any survivors helpless and trapped inside. The story follows Jim, a young man isolated within the red zone, as he eludes flesh eating … Read more

TV Show Review: Ash vs. Evil Dead

I’ve been VERY antsy to review the new Starz series, Ash vs. Evil Dead, and this is the week it hit my schedule. YAY! Whether you’re familiar with the Evil Dead movies or not–and how could you not know about Bruce Campbell and his evil book–watch the trailer below to find out where this TV series starts 30 years later. I have to say I nearly wet my pants when I saw the advertisement for … Read more

Movie Review: Contracted Phase I & II

This week is a double header. I’m reviewing Contracted and Contracted Phase II. Here’s what the movies are about: In phase I, “A young girl contracts what she thinks is a sexually-transmitted disease – but is actually something much worse. “ In phase II “Riley searches for a cure to the virus that took over Samantha before it consumes him and the entire world.” I watched these movies back to back and am glad I … Read more

TV Series Review: Fear the Walking Dead

This week I’m finally providing my opinion of Fear the Walking Dead. In case you haven’t heard, here’s what it’s about: “What did the world look like as it was transforming into the horrifying apocalypse depicted in “The Walking Dead”? This spin-off set in Los Angeles, following new characters as they face the beginning of the end of the world, will answer that question.” It’s been months since I watched the first season, twice. I … Read more

Movie Review: The Revenant

This week I’m reviewing The Revenant, the new release directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu and starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Considering what the main character, Hugh Glass, goes through, it is an undead movie of sorts. In case you haven’t heard, here’s what it’s about: “A frontiersman on a fur trading expedition in the 1820s fights for survival after being mauled by a bear and left for dead by members of his own hunting team.” Hugh Glass’s … Read more

Movie Review: Summer of Blood

This week’s review is Summer of Blood, and this review won’t be pretty. Here’s what it’s about: “Erik Sparrow is one of the lucky ones. He’s got a good job. He’s in a stable relationship. He lives in one of the greatest cities in the world. Does he deserve it? Probably not. He’s not too bright. He’s not very attractive. He’s not at all ambitious. He’s chubby and he’s always complaining. And when his girlfriend … Read more
