Weekly Recap: Borat, The Witches, Synchronic, AFI Fest & More!

Image
Even during the height of a pandemic, there is not a lack of movies to see. Seriously, this week delivered a stupid amount of movies. So many that I have not even got to the new adaptation of Rebeccaor the animated Netflix film directed by an Oscar-winning Disney animator (Over the Moon). And then there's AFI Fest, which offered plenty more films to screen virtually. Plenty of horror on my plate too, which will reach a finale of sorts next week, but let's get to what I did cover.

This week brings in a sequel to Sacha Baron Cohen's first hit Borat, a new adaptation of Roald Dahl's The Witches from director Robert Zemeckis, a very cool sci-fi film (Synchronic), some AFI Fest reviews, and more. There's also an exciting new bonus horror podcast episode covering Giallo and Italian horror films. Additionally, there are more podcasts we put together, including our episode covering The Trial of the Chicago 7. Finally, there are my various essays lists, and new trailers to …

Out Now Horror Special 2020: Giallo & Italian Horror

Image
This week’s Out Now with Aaron and Abe horror special takes a trip to Italia to take on some grisly mysteries. For this special, JoBlo's Jimmy O, Flicks For Fans' Jason Coleman, and The Brandon Peters Show's Brandon Peters join Aaron and Abe to discuss Giallo films (aka stylish Italian mystery thrillers) along with Italian horror films. After years of waiting, the whole gang finally did enough collective homework to put together a substantial episode covering the films of Mario Bava, Dario Argento, Lucio Fulci, and more. So, following some individual thoughts on the nature of Giallo specifically, along with how everyone first experienced the genre, the group goes through a number of movie selections from each member of the panel, further highlighting the topic. This list of films is also in the show notes so that any listener can catch up with plenty of great options falling under this banner. So now, if you've got an hour or so to kill… You can also find links to the e…

Weekly Recap: The Trial of the Chicago 7, Love And Monsters, Black Bear & More!

It takes some time to put all these links together (not counting the time it takes to, y'know, write all these reviews). That said, I keep debating how conversational I want to make this portion of the recap. As it stands, I mainly want to point out that I've written 100 reviews within the "In-House Reviews" column alone, meaning that there's plenty of movies available for all to see, mostly via varying streaming services. Sure, it's a different kind of year for obvious reason, but if you're reading this with the intent of finding movies to watch, you can find links to read about so many different options.

With that in mind, this week brings in a new Aaron Sorkin movie (The Trial of the Chicago 7), a new Woody Allen movie (A Rainy Day in New York), a creature feature (Love and Monsters), plenty of horror films, and more. Plus, our latest horror podcast, where we talked all about Arachnophobia in honor of its 30th anniversary. Additionally, there are more …

Out Now 422: The Wolf Of Snow Hollow & Possessor

This week's Out Now with Aaron and Abe features an out of mind and into wolf experience. Aaron and Abe are joined by Why So Blu’s Jordan Grout to discuss the horror-comedy The Wolf of Snow Hollow from writer/director/star Jim Cummings, along with Brandon Cronenberg’s trippy sci-fi body horror film, Possessor. The group takes a good look at both films, with lots of consideration given to the very specific filmmaking choices made by these directors.

Weekly Recap: Wolf Of Snow Hollow, Hubie Halloween, Friday the 13th & More!

Starting to play a familiar song with Regal announcing they're closing all their theaters in the country this week. That said, I've still got things covered as far as reviews for new film releases, a fun retrospective, and more. As far as the movies go, The Wolf of Snow Hollow delivers the goods in the realm of genre cinema, while Adam Sandler does better than normal these days with his latest comedy. There are several other films worth checking out as well, including The 40-Year-Old Version and Charm City Kings. The reviews are all here, plus our latest horror podcast, where we talked all about Friday the 13th in honor of its 40th anniversary. Additionally, there are more podcasts we put together, including our episode going over the documentary Dick Johnson is Dead, now on Netflix. Finally, there are my various essays lists, and new trailers to dig into as well.
