Friday Film Recommendations: Sept 26th



Greeting movie lovers! 

Are you tired of scanning Netflix’s instant list looking for something to watch? I know the feeling. Don’t fret my pet, I searched for you! Listed below are some newly added flicks for your viewing pleasure. 


The Sacrament

A journalist connecting with his estranged sister invites his filmmaker friends to document the event. The reunion unfolds unsettling events surrounding a dangerous cult. 

I endlessly love Ti West’s work and The Sacrament is proof that the man can take a basic plot and twist it to something more effective to horror fans. 







Filth


An arrogant, corrupt cop who believes he’s the only competent person in his department sees a recent murder case as a path to promotion.

I have not sat down to watch this one YET but since it is based on a book written by Trainspotting’s Irvine Welsh, I hear it’s an impressive film to check out. 




Dead Silence

In the wake of his bride’s death, a grieving newlywed returns to his hometown, where he is terrorized by the ghost of a ventriloquist.

This is an oldie but still a goodie. If you want to do a creepy doll marathon while preparing for the upcoming release of Annabelle I highly recommend throwing this movie into the mix. 



Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure


While rumors are still circulating about the possible Bill and Ted 3, why not go back to the start when Bill and Ted were just a bunch of high school kids trying to pass their history report. 






Invaders from Mars
David is the only one who knows the truth about the aliens that are invading his small town in this Tobe Hooper remake of the 1950s sci-fi classic.


Seriously ya’ll, this movie freaked me out when I was a kid. The frog scene still haunts me to this day. 

Happy movie watching folks!

Friday Film Recommendations: August 15

Happy Friday film loving folks! 

Do you find yourself overwhelmed looking for movies to watch on Netflix? I know it’s a tedious task to do so guess what?! I did it for you! 

Sit back, chill out and add some of these suggestions to your queue.




Nymphomanic


A self-diagnosed nymphomaniac reveals a lifetime of sexual experiences to a man who saves her from being beaten in an alley.

There’s more to this film than boobs, balls and boxes all up in your face. The theme goes beyond just random sex acts and into a more deep (take that as you may) look in the different facets of sexual exploration. 

Find four hours out of your day to check out both volumes of this film. 









You’re Next


A shy girl goes to her new boyfriend’s family reunion and must join their bloody fight for survival when a gang of masked hooligans invades the party.

You’re Next was high on my favorite films of last year so I was giddy to see that it’s streaming for all to enjoy. 

To anyone who wants to write this off as another “home invasion” film, don’t! 

This film is so much more than the typical cookie-cutter invasion film so check it out! 







The Killing (Season 4) 


The fourth and final season of the critically acclaimed crime thriller is a six-episode Netflix original that wraps up loose ends and reveals long-buried secrets. Detectives Linden and Holder return to investigate a gruesome mass slaying that exposes a dark family history, while trying to cover up a crime they committed.

I am a big fan of this show and I thought the third season was the best. I was thrilled that Netflix picked it up to wrap up the story for one final season. 

If you haven’t seen the show before, all the other seasons are streaming as well. 






Lizzie Borden Took an Axe


This made-for-TV drama chronicles the scandal and enduring mystery surrounding Lizzie Borden, who was tried in 1892 for axing her parents to death.

There are a lot of Lizzie Borden movies out there but my girl crush on Christina Ricci convinced me to check this one out. 

It carries the “made-for-Tv” watered down feel but it’s still an interesting take on Lizzie’s story. 






Stage Fright


A snobby musical theater camp is terrorized by a blood-thirsty killer who hates musical theater.

Stage Fright is a little cheesy, the killer is kind of super obvious yet I still really enjoyed this movie. The cast is great and the musical numbers are fun so this movie is a good choice if you’re in the mood for silly entertainment.

Friday Film Recommendations: July 25th





Happy Friday film loving folks! 


If you’re looking for some movies on Netflix but you don’t want to waste your time scanning lists and genres, don’t worry because I did that for you! 


Sit back, chill out and add some of these suggestions to your queue.





Hatchet 3

Picking up where Hatchet II left off, Marybeth continues her quest to avenge her family’s death at the hands of “Bayou Butcher” Victor Crowley.


I love the whole Hatchet series not only because it’s a fun slasher but the gore factor is overwhelmingly fantastic! 



Watch Now 



Urban Legends  

This tv series features tales of well-known urban legends while keeping you guessing which one is true and which is made up. 

This show is a great learning experience about off-the-wall urban legends plus a lot of the reenactments are lolz. 



Watch Now



Sharknado

I don’t know about you guys but I am balls deep excited about Sharknado 2 coming out next week!

If you haven’t seen the first one or you just want to watch it again before the sequel, here is your chance! 



Watch Now




Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956)

Evil-intentioned extraterrestrials capable of replicating humans and assuming their identities invade the sleepy California hamlet of Santa Mira.


I love all versions of the Invasion films but nothing can really beat the original. 




Watch Now 



Alone With Her

A coffee shop waitress has a secret admirer who’s been filming her with surveillance equipment, first from afar and then at much closer range.

As someone who lives alone, this movie completely freaked me out. It’s an unsettling feeling to think that a random creeper can stalk you and find ways to enter your life. Ladies, watching this may give you a full body cringe and you may re-think Naked Tuesdays in your apartment. I did.

Happy watching folks! 

Friday Film Recommendations: June 26th


Happy Friday film loving folks! 


If you’re looking for some movies on Netflix but you don’t want to waste your time scanning lists and genres, don’t worry because I did that for you! 

Go make yourself some popcorn, sit in your favorite chair and queue up one or all of my picks for this week! 

Devil’s Knot

If you’re not familiar with the story of the West Memphis Three, this film re-captures the dramatic moments surrounding the events of three murdered boys and three teens accused of the murders. 

From the start of the HBO documentaries all the way up to the latest West of Memphis film, I have been following this story for years. This movie is a cut and dry made for tv-esque take on the events. 



Watch Now



Old Boy

After being held captive for years for unknown reasons, Joe Doucett is suddenly released. Now, his only mission is to hunt down and punish his captors.

Old Boy is definitely on the “Why, why is this being remade?!” list. But it happened and there nothing we can do about that. I checked it out due to curiosity and to play the comparison game. It’s not a bad movie but it’s an unnecessary remake plus it’s ineffective when you already know how it’s going to end.

If you are curious about this movie as well, here is your chance to check it out.



Watch Now



Wolf Creek 2 

In this follow up movie, the tourist hating Outback serial killer continues to kill more people for fun.

Seriously ya’ll, this movie is terrible. Yet… I enjoyed it!  It’s stupid, over the top and gory as hell but I was in the mood for it so it worked. 

The first movie had its effectiveness due to the surrounding “true events” that took place. This sequel goes too far fetched making it impossible to believe that it was based on anything real. 

In the end I was entertained and that all I could ask for. 




Watch Now 



Night of the Creeps

Alien slugs are unleashed on Earth causing college co-eds to turn into zombies. 

I’m happy to see this wonderful classic film streaming on Netflix. 

Watch it and think to yourself “The guy who is a part of the new Predator movie made this, maybe there is hope!” 


Watch Now 




Grand Piano 

A pianist returning to the stage five years after a public meltdown learns that a sniper will shoot him and his wife if he plays just one wrong note.


I really enjoyed this movie even though it has kind of a Phone Booth feel to it. It’s suspenseful and exciting. 

Watch Now

Enjoy your weekend folks! 


Friday Film Recommendations: June 13th


Happy Friday film lovers! 

If you’re tired of scanning your Netflix queue looking for something new and exciting to watch it, scan no further! 

I have searched the earth of Netflix listings and compiled a list of movies you should check out!

Get your queue on! 


Star Trek: Into The Darkness


Kirk and Spock fight a terrorist threat to the Starfleet aided by an unlikely ally.

KKHHHHAAANNNNNN

I never found the original Star Trek tv show or movies appealing but I love J.J. Abrams’ reboot of the series. 



Watch Now

Machete Kills

Machete returns to battle the government and an evil billionaire.

Machete Kills is as entertaining and insanely ridiculous as the first one. 



Watch Now

World War Z (Unrated Version) 


A U.N. employee travels around the world trying to find the source of a zombie virus in an attempt to cure it. 

I know a lot of people thought this looked dumb specifically because of the pile o’ zombies. I actually liked this movie and felt like the pile worked. Yes, this movie far from the book but it’s still enjoyable and worth checking out. 




Watch Now

Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy

This fantastic documentary covers the creation of Freddy and the rise and fall of all the films and even the tv show. 

This easily became one of my favorite documentaries. I have always been a big fan of the Nightmare franchise and this doc explored so much of each film including a lot of things I never knew. 




Watch Now

Friday the 13th: Part 7: The New Blood

In honor of Friday the 13th today, check out the only F13 movie that is currently streaming on Netflix. 

In this Crystal Lake adventure, Jason rises from his watery grave to battle a teen girl who has telekinetic powers.

For real, I can’t make this up. 



Watch Now 


Happy watching folks!
