Captors (2020)

Alys escaped her captor in the dead of night. Ten years later, a man lures her to a cabin in the woods, where he will test her sanity and force her to fight to survive.

My thoughts: As if an A.I. was tasked with writing and directing a 90’s era woman-in-peril MOW. The results are, at times unintentionally humorous. But mostly unwatchable.



A Wounded Fawn (2022)

A serial killer brings an unsuspecting new victim on a weekend getaway to add another body to his ever-growing count. She’s buying into his faux charms, and he’s eagerly lusting for blood. What could possibly go wrong?

My thoughts: Gets off to a promising start but ultimately sinks into a pretentious morass.



Something in the Dirt (2022)

Maverick filmmaking duo Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead offer up a twisted reflection of our paranoid times in this inventive mix of buddy comedy and sci-fi thriller.

My thoughts: Patience is required, but you’ll be rewarded with a thoughtful and thought-provoking film that is heartfelt and, at times, delightfully humorous.



Mad God (2022)

The Assassin travels thru a nightmare underworld of tortured souls, ruined cities and wretched monstrosities forged from the primordial horrors of the unconscious mind of Phil Tippett, the world’s preeminent stop-motion animator

My thoughts: Vivid and visceral, surreal and startling, Grand Guignolesque and grotesque. A hellishly creative stop-motion masterpiece.



Bones and All (2022)

Maren, a young woman, learns how to survive on the margins of society.

My thoughts: A cannibal romance road movie that proves too languid and artsy for horror fans, but too gruesome and run-of-the-mill genre for the arthouse crowd.


Today’s Yes/No…



One thought on “December 16, 2022: The Horror Marathon continues!

  1. Wow, Mad God seems like the kind of movie that would be based on a video game. Maybe they should make a video game of it.
