Sophie's introduction into the magic that is the horror genre was watching Halloween at a party in high school, and since then she's never looked back. She may be the wimpiest horror fan you have ever met, but she won't ever let that stop her!
“The thing about Nicolas Cage movies is… unless you’re a total cynical dick, you have to embrace the fact that Nicolas Cage is a pretty good actor. He’s done a lot of weird, dumb movies, but that was supposed to be the point of the episode — that Nicolas Cage is a metaphor for God, or for society, or for the self, or something. It’s like — what is Nicolas Cage? What is he? Is he an idiot? Or a genius?
This week's episode of Ash finds our hero and his newly-discovered daughter both dealing with the death of his wife, her mom, in their own ways. While Brandy is trying to sort out what to make of her life now that her mother is gone, Ash is busy re-killing her.
In its short run time, Ash vs. Evil Dead has had its fair share of memorable set pieces. Like the films that came before it, this show is at its best when it’s gooey and when the effects are practical.
An unfortunate side-effect of the era of “Peak TV” is showrunners not knowing when to call it quits. On a certain level, we can’t blame the writers, directors, and actors for keeping these shows going indefinitely.
After Twitter started buzzing with conspiracy theories about how J.J. Abrams might release the next Cloverfield movie by uploading it directly into our collective consciousness, I was more than a little suspicious when the newest chapter of Hellraiser appeared in my mailbox. I mean, sure, one of the lovely BGH overlords asked who wanted a screener of this movie and yes, I said I would take it, but those cenobites can be so cunning!
In the era of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, it is pretty hard to stomach a movie like Dark Signal. As women everywhere are standing up to talk about the violence, abuse, and harassment that has been done to them by men in their lives, how can one sit down and watch a movie that is so incredibly violent and hateful towards women?
