Director Ben Wheatley brings his unique type of horror film to the screen with In The Earth. This is definitely not a film for everyone, especially now with the Pandemic still lingering. It is amazing to think that this was filmed after the Pandemic. Add the virus storyline, and you

As an assault of “video nasty” bits hurls at the screen amongst the opening credits I anticipated a fun ride through v/h/s soaked nostalgic sleaze and I was not wrong. Much like how Berberian Sound Studio paid homage to the Italian Giallo of the seventies without becoming a distraction, this

Listen in as Jim reviews Hunted, a gruesome new take on Red Riding Hood. Gruesome is the only word I have been able to think about since watching Hunted. Hunted is an original film from Shudder. This past year has been amazing for Shudder Originals. My wife is not a
