In Theaters: Happy Death Day 2U

Happy Death Day 2U (2019)Directed By: Christopher LandonWritten By: Christopher Landon, Scott Lobdell Happy Death Day was the surprise of 2017. A PG-13 slasher film that borrowed it’s premise from Groundhog Day. I thought it was a brilliant concept but didn’t actually expect it to be good. Imagine my surprise when I finally saw it.

The Merits of Sin (Poetically Waxed Special): Santo and Blue Demon Against the Monsters (1970) (Mexico)

       I sucked at Spanish in highschool. I’m not much better at it now. My limited grasp on the language comes from a want to not sound like a complete asshole while ordering food. Delicious food. Beyond my half assed attempts to impress the waitresses at hundreds of different Mexican restaurants all over … More The Merits of Sin (Poetically Waxed Special): Santo and Blue Demon Against the Monsters (1970) (Mexico)

The Merits of Sin: Pieces of Darkness (1989) (USA)

The Merits of Sin: Superstition (1982) (Canada)

A goofy personal favorite of mine from the early eighties. It’s a Canadian production filmed in Los Angeles that plays out like an Italian splatter flick. Seriously, the only thing missing is a laughable animal attack and a woman doing a dub job for the young boy character. An abandoned house with a nasty past … More The Merits of Sin: Superstition (1982) (Canada)

Schlock du Jour: Mad Ron’s Prevues From Hell (1987)

An unexpected review about a compilation of movie trailers. The movie trailer. As a society we are obsessed with them. You’re as likely to be asked if you’ve seen the latest superhero movie trailer that Marvel has shat out, as you are to hear “How ‘bout that there Tom Brady!?” while you avoid eye contact at … More Schlock du Jour: Mad Ron’s Prevues From Hell (1987)
