Host (2020) Review

Running Time: 56 min
Release Date: July 30, 2020
Directed by: Rob Savage

Review by: Stacey

Well, if this little cyber-horror gem hasn't taken the internet and the horror community by surprise! As some of you might know, we're in the middle of a pandemic that has been wreaking havoc on the world this year and that has resulted in many people having to stay home and work remotely and hang out with friends the same way. When you can't be face-to-face with your fellow co-workers (LUCKY...just kidding...kinda), or have your fun boozy nights out, you resort to the 'ol internet with some good old video chatting. Host decided to employee the use of the newly popular Zoom as its base and say "Coronavirus got you down? Us too. Here's something to scare the pants off of you!"

Relic (2020) Review

Running Time: 1hr 29min
Release Date: July 3, 2020 (US)
Directed by: Natalie Erika James

Review by: Stacey

Old people in scary movies are just downright...scary. From THE EXORCIST III to Rosemary's Baby and more recently, films like The Visit and The Taking of Deborah Logan (Ash and I mention this one in an older HORROR HUDDLE video of ours here), old people have been scaring the shit out of me for years. Natalie Erika James's directorial debut film, Relic, uses the theme of an older woman suffering from the onset of dementia which, apparently, is a really good base for a possible supernatural film. So here we have another scary movie with a scary old person, and I've subjected myself to it yet again.

HORROR HUDDLE w/ Stacey-Beth & Ash: CANDYMAN (1992) movie review

I heard that if you say its name 5 times in a mirror, it'll finally appear after a very long hiatus...

Oh my goodness, y'all- HORROR HUDDLE is back!
It's been a long time since we've last filmed an episode, so we're a tad rusty, forgive us. On this latest ep, we talk about urban horror flick, CANDYMAN!
Ash and Stacey are huge fans of this one and decided to talk about their love for it, Stacey's first time viewing experience of it which led to her unfortunate 1st grade PTSD, and our opinion that the big man himself, Candyman, is a largely underappreciated horror villain.

Give it a watch and leave us some feedback!

Fantasia Film Festival 2018: COLD SKIN review

Running Time: 1hr 48min
Release Date: July 15, 2018 (Fantasia Fest)
Written by: Jesus Olmo and Eron Sheean (screenplay), Albert Sanchez Pinol (novel)
Directed by: Xavier Gens

Review by: Stacey

I think what initially drew me to wanting to see Xavier Gen's adaptation of the novel, Cold Skin, was the poster art above. Check that cool shit out. Then the plot synopsis got me; if it takes place near the Arctic and involves creatures I'm immediately thrown into John Carpenter's The Thing and am all in. Cold Skin isn't as balls out and gross as the Carpenter classic and unfortunately, it's not going to be as memorable either.

Fantasia Film Festival 2018: THE WITCH IN THE WINDOW review

Running Time: 1hr 17min
Release Date: July 23, 2018 (Fantasia Fest)
Written/Directed by: Andy Mitton

Review by: Stacey

Call me a sucker for any supernatural flicks involving witches, double points if it takes place in rural farmhouses. Oh hey, whaddya know, Andy Mitton's The Witch in the Window has all of that! Ok, it has all of that but doesn't exactly go down like you would think it does.

Fantasia Film Festival 2018: PUPPET MASTER: THE LITTLEST REICH

Running Time: 1hr 24min
Release Date: July 21, 2018 (Fantasia Fest), Aug 17 (theatrical/VOD)
Written by: S. Craig Zahler
Directed by: Sonny Laguna, Tommy Wiklund

Review by: Stacey

Man, I have such fond memories of renting the earlier titles on VHS when I was a little gal and not so much being scare of them, but being fun-scared! Is that a thing? Well, I'm making it a thing! You know what I mean, though? The puppets were murderous and ugly and creepy and I should have been TERRIFIED of them flat out, but they were also almost like the anti-heroes and at times I would find myself rooting for them.

It doesn't seem like that's the case in Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich, however. The master, Toulon (played by none other than Udo Kier), was an evil one this time around, and his minions followed suit, killing innocent (for the most part) people. At the writing helm was S. Craig Zahler who was responsible for films like Bone Tomahawk and Brawl in Cell Block 99, so I knew it was going to be a bloody good time.

Running Time: 1hr 38min
Release Date: July 20, 2018 (Fantasia Fest)
Written/Directed by:  Robert D. Krzykowski

Review by: Stacey

I know I wasn't the only one who was really excited to see Krzykowski's feature length debut based off of the title alone- but couple that with THE Sam Elliott in the lead?? C'mon, it was a no-brainer that I was going to have to see this with my own eyes and report back to my readers about this one. And check out that awesome poster (I was tweeted earlier today and informed that the poster art was created by Johnny Tabor)!

Ok ok, I'm going to have to pump the brakes and let you all know that what you're going to find yourself getting into isn't exactly what you're thinking. And I can say that confidently because I'm sure that we ALL had an idea of what we thought this movie was going to be about. Well, it wasn't exactly...and that's not a bad thing!
