Weekly Recap: Come Play, Eyimofe, His House, Psycho & More!

Image
We've made it to the end of the month! I don't know about "having turned a corner" (hopefully a few days from now that phrase may be more fitting), but there's at least time for Halloween. While heading out to packed horror screenings is not quite as appropriate this year, this week's releases and what I've covered certainly makes up for it to some degree.

This week has a few horror options (Come Play, His House, Bad Hair), along with some solid indies I covered as a part of some virtual film festivals (Eyimofe, Waikiki). We've also reached the end our October horror-themed bonuses on the podcast with our commentary track for Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho. Additionally, there are more podcasts we put together, including our episode covering The Witches, Borat, a director interview, and more. Finally, there are my various essays lists, and new trailers to dig into as well. Enjoy, stay safe out there, and thanks for reading! Movie Reviews:(All Reviews Ar…

There’s plenty of talk about the film, the performances, Hitchcock’s direction, as well as the sequels and the remake. There’s plenty more discussion in regards to the nature of the production, what makes this film stand out, and lots of fun tangents as well.So now, if you’ve got an hour to kill…You can also find links to the episode at AudioBoomor Spotify.Subscribe via iTunes HERE

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!

Image
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 …
