On this week’s episode we head back to the movies for 2017’s THE BOOK OF HENRY, and how could we resist?

On this week’s episode we head to the movie theater and check out a film that critics love and audiences seem to despise, 2017’s “horror” flick IT COMES AT NIGHT. So what exactly is ‘it’? Why is ‘it’ coming? And, hey, why is the screen suddenly so tiny? We attempt to get to the bottom of it all, while wondering why the studio’s marketing team hasn’t yet been drawn and quartered. WARNING! THIS EPISODE CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS!!
On this week’s episode we delve into 2005’s HIGH TENSION, an extreme horror flick from France directed by Alexandre Aja that was hacked to death in the editing room by Lionsgate. Hell, they even added an English dub for all you stupid Americans out there! And yet something tells us the exploding heads and repugnant homophobia would have crossed any language barrier with ease. So sit back with your favorite decapitated noggin and enjoy!
As the latest version of THE MUMMY lurches its way into theaters, we take a look at director Alex Kurtzman’s directorial debut, 2012’s family dramedy PEOPLE LIKE US, a film that forces us to ask the question, “Is incest ok when the participants are Chris Pine and Elizabeth Banks?” The argument gets heated.
On this week’s episode we tackle 1997’s 187, in which Waterworld director Kevin Reynolds attempts to subvert the inspirational teacher flick by giving us a murderous–and shockingly subdued–Samuel L. Jackson as a vengeance-seeking educator. Limbs will be severed, lives will be taken, and lessons will be imparted. Oh, and if you thought Dangerous Minds would have been cooler if it ended with a game of Russian Roulette, look no further!
