Annihilation (2018)

Running Time: 1hr 55min
Release Date: February 23, 2019
Written by: Alex Garland (screenplay), Jeff VanderMeer (based on the novel by)
Directed by: Alex Garland

Review by: Stacey

Prior to its release, there was some studio hooplah with Annihilation and whether it would garner any kind of love from moviegoers as Paramount said it was "too intellectual". They weren't wrong- the movie made me sit back and think the entire time I was watching it, but it wasn't a bad thing.  I admit, I felt a bit stupid at times during my viewing, but I appreciated that and don't particularly care for my movies to spoon feed me every bit of a scene.  However, as more and more people see the movie, I can only imagine how divisive this one will be but I can say with every bit of me- IT WAS SO GOOD.

Horror Huddle w/ Stacey-Beth & Ash: NIGHTWORLD (2017)

On this episode of HORROR HUDDLE, we talk the freshly released to Netflix flick, NIGHTWORLD, starring Jason London and Robert Englund.  It's not the best and we have no problem saying so- from the forced dialogue to awkward sex scenes, this isn't going to be on anyone's top end of the year lists.

The Triangle (2016)

Running Time: 1hr 34min
Release Date: June 28, 2016
Written/Directed by: David Blair, Nathaniel Peterson, Adam Pitman, Andrew Rizzo, Adam Stilwell

Review by: Stacey

A found footage movie about a "cult"?  Sign me up!  I had actually heard about The Triangle (not to be confused with '09s time-bending Triangle) a while back, but what drew me to it (ff and cults) was also what turned me off to rushing to see it.  As I've mentioned several times before, the sub-genre is a guilty pleasure of mine, but also one that is FULL of more misses than hits, so I usually go into these with some trepidation; not to mention most horror flicks about cults seem to follow the same formula.  I was sure The Triangle was going to follow in the same footsteps as movies like The Sacrament, but lemme tell ya, I was pretty surprised by this one.

As if I needed more of a reason for us here at To Avoid Fainting to attend this year's TEXAS FRIGHTMARE WEEKEND horror con (yes, we will be there this year)!

TFW has just announced some awesome guests and a super rad Arrow Video release that I will most definitely need to be getting my hands on.

Keep Watching (2017)

Running Time: 1hr 29min
Release Date: Oct 31, 2018
Written by: Joseph Dembner
Directed by: Sean Carter

Review by: Stacey

You know something is up when a movie was shot 4 years before it's release, and when done so, is shown for only one night (Halloween) at 10pm.  It also seems like Bella Thorne is 0-2 when it comes to horror movies she stars in that end up in distribution hell with shit releases (Amityville: The Awakening).  There's a quote that floats around about not getting your hopes up, so then you won't be let down- that can definitely be applied to Keep Watching.
