REVIEW - Doctor Sleep

Nov 11, 2019
Warner Bros. Pictures

In 2012, filmmaker Rodney Ascher waded into the fever swamps of cinema obsession in the documentary Room 237, an exhaustive deep dive into the myriad of suspected secret messages in Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. Those who were anxious to lap up that film’s fan-brewed fantasies will hate Mike Flanagan’s semi-sequel to Kubrick’s film, Doctor Sleep (heretofore Sleep). That’s a shame, because director Mike Flanagan has managed to adapt Stephen King’s novel that pays tribute to both artistic titans while creating something all his own.

Lionsgate Pictures

#MonsterCast concludes! Our horror film spotlights comes to an end with Drew Goddard's equal parts critique and love letter to horror, The Cabin In The Woods. Five friends go for a break at a remote cabin, where they get more than they bargained for, discovering the truth behind the cabin in the woods.

FLASHBACK - Wes Craven's New Nightmare

Oct 23, 2019
New Line Cinema

#MonsterCast isn't just great because we get to talk all the horror films we can get our hands on! It's also great because we get to welcome back one of our favorite shows! After a long hiatus #Flashback is officially... back! And we're jumping back onto the nostalgia train by looking at Wes Craven's New Nightmare. A demonic force has chosen Freddy Krueger as its portal to the real world. Can Heather Langenkamp play the part of Nancy one last time and trap the evil trying to enter our world?

MOVIE REVEIW: "Wounds"

Oct 21, 2019
Two and Two Pictures/Hulu

If you wanted to manufacture the personification of tall, dark, and handsome in a lab, the result would likely resemble Armie Hammer. He's so infuriatingly good-looking, even his voice is handsome, and that doesn’t even make sense (but it totally makes perfect sense). So, his casting as Will, the "man’s man" at the center of Babak Anvari’s new film, Wounds, could not have been more spot-on. A proud Tulane drop-out, Will makes his bones bartending at Rosie’s, a New Orleans hole-in-the-wall with a small, but loyal clientele.

INTERVIEW: "Wounds" Director Babak Anvari

Oct 21, 2019

October and #MonsterCast gets even better this month with a very special episode. We were lucky enough to screen the new #Hulu film #Wounds and the acclaimed director Babak Anvari was good enough to join us for an interview diving deep into the film.
