Review: LIKE ME

I once made a really good burger. I formed the patty myself, added the spices and topped it with smashed avocado. It was a half-pound beast that was proof to the world that I could, in fact, make a burger. I shot a photo of my culinary a...

Stranger Things 3 sheds episode like pollywog skin

Stranger Things season 3 will run 8 episodes, down one from season 2 but the same as season 1.   No reason was announced, but since season 2 felt like it meandered a bit more than season 1, it may just indicate tighter storytell...

Latest Unsane clip is really boring

Unsane, the questionably titled first horror film from Steven Soderbergh, landed a trailer that was pretty good. It established its setup and escalating stakes well and offered plenty of glimpses at the manic atmosphere of the asylum. This...

Steven Soderbergh's Unsane gets new images and not much else

What kind of director would you say Steven Soderbergh is? I have no clue. The man seems to do whatever the hell he wants and be really good it no matter what. His next "whatever the hell he wants" is a horror film called Unsane, which was s...

The Strangers: Prey at Night release its first trailer

I am weirdly excited for The Strangers: Prey at Night. Don't ask me why. I remember digging the original film, which released about 9 years ago, but not enough that I bought it or ever watched it again. So I shouldn't be that pumped for a ...

Review: Insidious: The Last Key

There’s a fatal flaw that’s lodged in every good horror franchise: sooner or later, their quality begins to drop exponentially. Saw was a great film, but Saw IV? What about Paranormal Activity, and each entry into that after the...

Review: Black Mirror (Season 4)

We live in a time of fear. Fear of other people, fear of our government. We’re afraid of where we are, but more than that, we are terrified of where we are going. We can hardly predict what will happen in a given year, and technology ...

Review: Jigsaw

What started out as a low budget, generic "torture porn" film has slowly morphed over the years into an endearingly goofy film franchise. If you've never seen a Saw film before, I'm sure its lasting success seems like a mystery from the out...

Review: Jeepers Creepers 3

If you've read any of my posts for Flixist, you know that I approach most sequels not with trepidation, but with outright skepticism. This is because rather than being an earnest or needed continuation to a great story, they're cash grabs. ...
