Review – Mother (2017)

by Old King Clancy

This is going be a difficult film to talk about without spoilers, so if I let anything slip, I apologize in advance. Truthfully though you should have already seen Mother! before reading this review because it’s a film worth knowing as little about it as possible before going in. That way you can hate it on your own terms because trust me, this will piss a LOT of people off! But if you’re into weird, creepy stuff like me, you might love it.

Review – The Mist (Season 1)

by Nile Fortner

I am someone who is actually a fan of ‘The Mist’ novel by Stephen King. I actually consider it one of my favorite novels, and I have read it a couple of times. I even went back and read it before the first episode aired on Spike TV. This may not be the most popular thing to say, but I am actually a fan of the movie as well. I consider it one of my favorite movies because it works with a tight budget, and proves you can have a compelling story that is mainly character driven. The only thing that didn’t work for me was the ending of that film. I will never forget that ending, so that’s good. On the other hand, it’s an ending that makes your heart feel like it was hit by a ton of bricks.

Cinephellas Flashback: Logan’s Interview with Brandy Schaefer (The Houses October Built)

by Logan Myerz

Just in time for the Halloween season, the newest tale of horror and macabre takes place in everyone’s favorite seasonal attraction, the Haunted House.  Five friends embark on a haunted trip in 2013 to find the ultimate horror attraction, but what they find is far more traumatizing than they expected. As they come across numerous haunted houses throughout Texas and Louisiana they interview the creepiest and most demonic individuals employed by these houses. Are these attractions built just for the normal adrenaline junkie or is there a darker secret waiting inside? This movie touches on many of the questions I have been asking myself for years walking through haunted houses. As a paying customer do we really trust the person behind the mask scaring us, or are they truly insane? This documentary style film answers some of these questions, and in my opinion is something truly unique in the horror genre. The audience is given admission to many Haunted attractions throughout the south with point-of-view camera angles, real actor interviews, and hundreds of blood curdling screams. Tobe Hooper’s The Funhouse was a fictitious film back in 1981 that touched on the same subject, but with a non-believable monster lurking within the shadows. What makes this film more authentic is the touch of realism and dementia that resides in America’s backyard that only comes out thirty-one days a year. This is as real as movies come and people should be aware of their surroundings because they don’t know if the masked ghoul is an actor or a crazy convict on the run.

Review – IT (2017)

by Kevin Muller

Many people don’t know, but the number 27 and the release of the new film, “IT”, go hand in hand. In the novel, Pennywise, the murderous clown, emerges every 27 years. Secondly, it has been 27 years since the television adaptation of the novel where Tim Curry played Pennywise was released. Finally, the new Pennywise, played by Bill Skarsgard, is 27 as the new film drops. All these are interesting and cool coincidences, but does the new adaptation of the famous Stephen King novel succeed? It has advantages that the television movie didn’t have: production value, gore, and the ability for the characters to talk like real thirteen year olds, who drop swear words like they are going out of style.
