Would You Rather (2013)

Running Time: 93 minutes
Release Date: February 8, 2013
Review by: Stacey

On a whim I decided to check out Would You Rather as I have been slacking on making content for my precious blog here.  Sorry!  BUT, I have been lending my horror reviews to an amazing horror movie website, Horror Movies Uncut.  I'll make a separate post about that in the next few hours.  Onto the film at hand.

Skinwalker Ranch (2013)

Running Time: 86 minutes
Release Date: October 30, 2013
Review by: Chris

Skinwalkers. The yee naldlooshi. With it, he goes on all fours.
Growing up Native and spending the summers of my formative years with
my grandparents and extended family on the San Carlos 'rez' I am no
stranger to whispered second hand tales of malevolent shapeshifters.
 Spoken hushed in the afternoon, outside of grandfather's earshot-- Never around the campfire. Never at dark. Never out loud. For They
listen. They hear when named. They come when called. These
supernatural stories of dark magics and twisted men and spirits fired
the imaginations of a young boy and his friends. Children whose world
was still filled with mystery and wonder and awe. They were my boogey
men. My Cucuy. My Gurumāpā. So naturally when this review came across
my desk (okay I really don't have a desk), I was ready to jump feet
first, and revisit my childhood boogeyman.

Shock Waves (1977)

   Running Time: 90 minutes
Release Date: July 15, 1977
Review by: Chris


 "Don't go into the water." The tagline made famous by 1978's Jaws, still echo's down cinema's hallowed halls. It's a little known fact that Spielberg was inspired by the tagline "Don't go into the's anti Semitic."  Born from this week's review feature, 1977's Shock Waves, a true story (probably not true...probably).  Ken Wiederhorn's stylistic nazi zombie film brings quite a few unique takes on the undead horror genre, not the least of which is the nazi zombie itself. After all what's worse than a zombie...that's right a zombie that hates freedom.
