Emelie (2015)

Running Time: 1hr 20min
Release Date: March 4, 2016
Review by: Stacey


I think at some point or another we've all seen the ultimate evil babysitter movie, The Hand That Rocks The Cradle.  Rebecca De Mornay perfectly portrayed the crazed killer with a vendetta against the Bartel family for ruining her life.  While not even on a scale that grand or complex, Michael Thelin's feature film debut, Emelie, attempts to channel from the same psychological well.

Ava's Possessions (2015)

Running Time: 1hr 29min
Release Date: March 4, 2016
Review by: Stacey


I'm sure we've all seen our fair share of demonic possession movies to last us a lifetime.  What's not so common is a movie that gives us a look into what happens to these people affected by the possession AFTER all is said and done.  Writer/director Jordan Galland did just that with Ava's Possessions.

Backtrack (2015)

Running Time: 1hr 30min
Release Date: January 29, 2016 (UK)
Review by: Stacey

Apparently I'm treating myself this week to movies that indulge my disgusting crushes on random actors.  Last review was Jeremy Sisto and today it's the Academy Award-winning Adrien Brody in Australian suspense/thriller Backtrack.  The only difference is that Brody is on a totally different level of acting and I didn't walk away from this one feeling bad about my decision to watch it.

Hangman (2015)

Running Time: 1hr 25min
Release Date: February 9, 2016
Review by: Stacey

Jesus, that's a pretty terrible cover for this one, huh?  As is expected with most found footage movies, there's the obligatory "inspired by true events" note to up the spook factor for us (which basically means nothing in the movie actually happened).  What Hangman does manage to do, however, with the tired subgenre is give the film an inventive execution and a couple of creepy moments here and there...but that's about it, unfortunately.

Holy Ghost People (2013) + Misery (1990)

Ash and SB decided to do something different and make another segment (Horror Huddle is still very much so a thing) where, at the end of the month, we each pick and discuss movies that wouldn't necessarily be considered straight horror. (Plus it's a great excuse for us to talk more about random movies we enjoy.)

p.s. We discuss it in the video, but we haven't quite nailed down a name for this segment, so any suggestions would be appreciated and rad!

That being said, on this first episode of "Not-Yet-Named", we discuss S-B's pick, 2013's thriller/drama Holy Ghost People, about a woman's search for her sister in a cult of snake handlers.  Then we talk about Ash's pick, the classic 1990 thriller, Misery, adapted from the Stephen King novel about a novelist who has been taken in by his "biggest fan" after getting in a car accident.

Enjoy and leave some feedback!
