Mother’s Milk – Just Scare Me #11 – 02/19/22

Welcome back to the series where I post the behind-the-scenes details of our Just Scare Me Horror Shorts.

After all the time, money, and emotional energy spent behind the scenes to make Autoslay, Erica and I wanted to keep this round’s horror short simple and confined. We wrote a story with two actors in a room, and little else. Yet, we didn’t just want any two people. We wanted Erica’s best friends in the whole wide world to embody these characters.

#ConTENders for My Top Ten of 2017 (so far)

I’ve been slacking. I’ll be the first to admit it. I meant to make an individual post about each film I had thought had a chance to make my Top Ten list of 2017, and between work and other projects, I have let you, fine readers, down.

To make it up to you, here are the films that may very well make my Top Ten list this year that don’t have their own post. For the previously posted see–  Split | Get Out | Logan | Kong: Skull Island |

Wow, I didn’t post that many, did I? I hope you all didn’t think that I hadn’t seen any more great films! I will continue posting #ConTENders with the jam-packed fall and winter as scheduled. So stay tuned for that.Read More »

71- Wind River and Annabelle Creation

It’s a two-man show today as Jamie’s working the majority of this week! We discuss the Sundance hit, Wind River, as well as the Box Office King of August (a little prognostication, but I’m not far off): Annabelle Creation.

 

Does Wind River have Oscar Buzz? (It better!) Will a sequel to a spinoff from a guy who spent years making shorts in his house in Sweden be the scariest movie of 2017 (likely, yes).

 

Then, Jamie talks about his #52PickUp, Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead.

 

You all may have first heard about Christina Applegate during her run on Married With Children, but I first fell in love with her here.

 

Opening and a Special Announcement! (Starts at 00:00)

Alex– Wind River (1:48)

Tim’s Communal– Annabelle Creation [With Spoilers] (10:18)

#52PickUp #33 Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead (21:23)

Get Out #ConTENders 2017

Rarely, does a horror film have so much to say, and then utter it in the most eloquent prose possible. Get Out is truly a one-of-a-kind thriller in its subject matter, its subtext, and its resonance. And that is why it is one of my #ConTENders for the Top Ten List of 2017.

 

“Written and Directed by famed comedian and sketch comedy guru, Jordan Peele” is a sentence one would expect when discussing the likes of Keanu (or a potential sequel), but not a horror film. Yet, Jordan manages to break tired ground and till it until the seeds of evil are ready to be sown.

38- “Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday” #52PickUp

For this episode of #52PickUp I watch my favorite Friday the 13th film (yes, you read that right):

jason-goes-to-hell-poster

Now, I have a penchant for loving cool concepts, even though they’re attempts to reinvigorate waning franchises like Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare, and this film, Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday. Hmm, neither one of those were truly final, were they?

I must state first off that I have nothing against the other entries in the Friday the 13th series, I love them all, but this film had that “Je Nais Se Quoi” that allowed it to stand out amongst the rest. I will now attempt to shine a light on my favorite elements of the film.Read More »
