In the Tall Grass – Film Review! (Fantastic Fest)

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 24th, 2019

Stephen King has a penchant for terrifying us with the most innocent things. Whether it be a cornfield, a family dog, a classic red car, or even a fancy hotel at a ski-resort – King delivers the scares more than most. The same can be said for his short novella he co-wrote with his son Joe Hill called ‘In the Tall Grass‘, which takes place in a beautiful and lush field of tall green blades of grass. Director Vincenzo Natali (‘Cube‘, ‘Splice‘) adapts this horrific story for the big screen as he clutches to the overall maniacal themes of this bloody novella, but never takes it to a peak level of savagery as the written words do. In fact, it’s best you separate the source material from the adapatation so you can enjoy each piece of material individually along with their great unique qualities.

The Saddest Moments in TV History!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 17th, 2019

Days are getting shorter and it’s starting to feel slightly cooler outside. It’s the end of summer and the beginning of autumn where leaves start to fall and orange spiced everything is available for mass consumption. This new season also signifies going back to school, starting something new whether it be a different job or living in another city. Whatever the case may be, it’s for sure an emotional ride.

Thank goodness for entertaining television though, right?

Film Review: ‘Ahockalypse’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 14th, 2018

The past decade and a half, the undead have risen in all forms of entertainment. We’ve seen zombies on the big screen with big stars like Brad Pitt, we’ve seen the undead walk on prime time television and win awards, along with playing zombies in video games, and even in our kid-friendly cartoons. Zombies are the main-stay nowadays and like superhero movies, they’ve completely oversaturated the movie market, where it becomes tiresome to watch yet another zombie movie. We’ve seen Nazi zombies, Shakespeare zombies, marijuana zombies, romantic comedy zombies, and even zombie beavers. What’s next? I’ll tell you what’s next, it’s a movie called ‘AHOCKALYPSE‘ and is a hockey sports movie with zombies that was made in Minnesota.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

This movie sounds like so much fun and a little like that 1980’s horror film by Lamberto Bava called Demons, which followed a bunch of people attending a movie screening of a horror film, only to find out that there was an evil force that turned them into blood thirsty demons. This new film though is called Blood Fest and comes from the Rooster Teeth team, which brought us Red vs Blue and Lazer Team.

Getting Deep with ‘Gods of Egypt’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 11th, 2017

Jennifer S., here….

gods-of-egypt-1

Firstly, this is my first real blog post; inspired by the fact that I finally got to view Gods of Egypt.  This was, like many Egyptian Mythology based movies were, a movie that I was looking forward to finally viewing.  I’m uncertain as to why I decided this was the topic I wanted to delve back into writing for, but here it is.  I feel two ways about it.  I’m going to express initially that I enjoyed it from an objective standpoint, it was fun and colorful and full of some interesting effect that got them right as often as they got them wrong… Giant Heads… #BobbleGods.  Now I’m going to express my displeasure, as anyone who has a passing interest in actual mythology realizes, it’s terrible.  The story is anyway, but the plotline is okay… and personally, I feel the message was all wrong about the afterworld.

Hey guys, Jana here,

themonster_bd_3dFrom the director of ‘The Strangers‘ comes another movie that gets you in touch with fear at a very primal level, ‘The Monster‘. Bryan Bertino knows how to generate amazing scares on the big screen, the aforementioned Strangers had me double and triple checking locks for weeks because I was sufficiently spooked. The trailer for ‘The Monster‘ looks to hit me even moreso right in the feels because of the mother/child aspect.

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 23rd, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

handmaiden3

Park Chan-wook is already a legendary filmmaker in pretty much every circle and he’s only 53 years old. With films like the original ‘Oldboy’, ‘Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance’, ‘Thirst’, and ‘Stoker’, it’s easy to say that Park Chan-wook is a master of his domain and film. Fortunately for everyone who loves film, his new movie ‘The Handmaiden’, based off ‘Fingersmith’ by Sarah Waters is not just a film, but an experience in cinema and will be forever etched in you memory for all the right reasons.
