TrailerWatch “GRETEL & HANSEL” gives a classic tale a chillingly modern twist

…Or perhaps it’s just the bloody old world style that’s been reintroduced? Dang y’all – the original versions of most fairy tales are harsh. H&G give me serious The Witch vibes with its deeply unsettling, claustrophobic atmosphere. Synopsis!

A long time ago in a distant fairytale countryside, a young girl leads her little brother into a dark wood in desperate search of food and work, only to stumble upon a nexus of terrifying evil.

Gretel & Hansel comes to your village January 2020.

TrailerWatch: new “Jojo Rabbit Trailer shows the problem of hating what you don’t know

Right from the auf Deutch version of The Monkee’s “I’m a Believer”, you know you’re in for some tongue-in-cheek fun. But this new trailer for Jojo Rabbit also shows that this film will be addressing lots of heavy stuff too, especially when young Jojo realizes that his mother (Scarlet Johansson) has given shelter to a young Jewish girl…

Jojo Rabbit hits theaters October 18th, 2019. You ready? I am.

Elsewhere Review: Sukkerfri Dent Duett: Berry + Licorice Pastilles

Originally published on The Green Man Review!

I’m an unabashed fan of black licorice. I’ve tasted (and reviewed) lots of different styles, from salty to sweet, and even covered in chocolate. (Don’t knock ’em ’til you’ve tried ’em y’all.) But licorice and berries? No, not berry flavored licorice. A mashup of black licorice and berry flavors. For those days when you can’t seem to make up your mind on what kind of taste you’re craving – which for me is just about every single day of my life – Duet has an equal amount of sweet and sweetly savory. And I’m a fan. Continue reading

Blu-Ray Review: “Dead Don’t Die in Dallas”

“TROMBIES!!!”

A zombie movie from the folks that gave us Ticked Off Trannies With Knives? Hell yeah I’m watching this. If you’re a lover of good & goofy homemade horror – and who isn’t? – you’ll have a blast with Dallas.

This film starts with one of my favorite quotes, racking up the points in my book. (Though the film attributes it to Plato, others have been credited with spouting it, including Ian Maclaren, John Watson, and more…but it’s a great quote whoever it originally came from.) Anyway, on to the zombies! Continue reading

TrailerWatch – “American Horror Story: 1984” kicks off Season 9

“Nothin’ but good memories about this place.”

YESSS! It’s here! It’s here! The first trailer for the 9th season of AHS! And damn y’all. Hair metal, spandex, Aqua Net, and so much more. Looks like it will, in fact, be a summer-camp slasher story, complete with a creepy killer. “Mr. Jingles”? Nope, don’t want to meet that guy.

Bummer there’ll be no no Sarah Paulson or Evan Peters, but I can’t wait to see what’s in store for our game cast! (How much do I adore Leslie Grossman’s winged hair? SO MUCH.)

Enjoy y’all!
