Overlord!

A small group of rangers barely survive a behind-the-lines drop ahead of D-Day and find themselves in a small French town with a dark secret... In the crypts beneath the church lies a Nazi base where mad scientists are reanimating corpses!

Begin GIs fighting zombies!

It's been done a million billion times. But, somehow, this movie is the first to pull it off well. Don't get me wrong -- this movie is in no way elevated. It's tropey and silly. But the cast really glues everything together, and they're strangely loyal to the WWII setting (well...by way of Wolfenstein, at least). It's weirdly light on the horror, too. That sets it apart. They keep the jump scares to a minimum, they keep the monsters in the background. It's more about discovering the complex and then deciding to "save the cat" and blow up some Nazis.

Worth a watch!

Oh, yes! I just watched it for the second time after the Everything Trying to Kill You podcast ranted wildly about it for a half hour. It's even better on the second viewing!

Um...shall we organize a movie date guys?


The VVitch was really good. Jacob's Ladder meets The Crucible meets, er, the 1740s. Directed by a former production designer, the film just completely immerses you in what's it's like to be on the Massachusetts frontier in that era. It's a slow burn, but never boring... with a payoff that's extremely satisfying.

A Dark Song.

This is the movie you make when you have access to your friend's English countryside manor house for the weekend.

Carnage Park. Standard hunting humans/Hills have eyes fare. Set in 1978, a girl is stranded in the desert where she's hunted by an insane ex-Vietnam vet sniper who is, seemingly, immortal. There are some interesting layers here -- we start out, pretty much, in Final Girl country. The sheriff is the vet's brother and is also insane (though that goes nowhere and is wasted). The final hunt through the mine shaft, while it could have been better lit, was still tense. The 1978 setting was lovingly adhered to. But this movie is strictly just background noise.

Cargo! Martin Freeman, his wife, and baby daughter are surviving a zombie apocalypse in the Australian outback by, mainly, sticking to their houseboat and calmly cruising through the wilderness. But then the wife makes a stupid mistake you see coming a million miles away because people don't talk to each other in horror, and she's done for leaving Freemen infected. So he must strike out overland to find a safe haven for his baby before he turns.

Standard zombie fare... But there are enough little twists to make this an interesting and slightly original flick, despite the well-trodden sub-genre. Add it to your stuck in bed with a cold list.

Suspira could actually use a reboot. I'm not opposed to this. In fact, they should reboot all the crazy 70s thrillers. Trim the fluff, up the budget, and really make us scream again.

Jessica Harper is in this so I can only assume it's a Force Awakens style soft reboot.

Five years on my brain not being scarred by the knowledge of it's existence.

It is surprising they never carried the joke to the obvious end-point: A massive franchise.
