Us: social commentary?

Us(2019) is a great new film that premiered last weekend. The main crux is that people have human doubles (called the tethered) that live underground and are literally forced to do whatever the original person is doing at all times. It is never explained how this has happened and this is all for the better. However, could there be social commentary hidden under this premise that arguably has some similarities to older horror films. The Day of the Dead comparisons are apt, considering the apocalyptic nature of the movie but at the same time, the specifics of the doppleganger’s plans … Continue reading Us: social commentary?

Us movie review

I loved Jordan Peele’s directorial debut, Get Out. I admire his ability to write, direct and produce excellent movies that keep me entertained all the way through. I didn’t even know this movie was another one of his until I got to the theater as I hadn’t seen any trailers and was going with a friend. I got really excited when I saw who directed it. I rarely go to see horror movies with friends to the theater because many of my friends don’t really care for it. I really liked this movie. I have to say I wasn’t really … Continue reading Us movie review

Ghostly Trio: Good Ghost Movies

ZOIKS SCOOOB ITS A GHO GHO GHOOOOOOOOST I love ghosts don’t you like ghosts? Before I start sounding like Jack Fenton and making bad ghost puns, let me just say, these movies are just three I really enjoyed. If you don’t like them, that’s cool. I like movies everyone hates all the time, and that doesn’t take away from how I feel about them. The great thing about all forms of art, is that your own likes and dislikes, are subjective. Now here we go : Insidious(2010) Holy boooooooooooo merang, Batman, this was an enjoyable film. There is something really … Continue reading Ghostly Trio: Good Ghost Movies

Favorite Horror films: 1408

Horror films rock my socks. I used to be terrified but now I am in love with the genre. I believe horror is so primal and deep that it is the primary way of creating compelling characters and to have deep emotional storylines. This is not solely a horror movie thing, but horror often is not held up as the highest art. I have decided to name a few of my favorite horror films here and hope you enjoy. 1408 (2009) An adaptation of a Stephen King short story, this movie follows Michael Enslin(John Cusack) who is a skeptical author … Continue reading Favorite Horror films: 1408

Knock Knock: Disappointing Pizza

I am a fan of Eli Roth, and I was looking forward to seeing Knock Knock. I admit as a young man, the attractive females were a part of the reason I wanted to see the film. But that doesn’t mean that I cannot recognize a good film. Eli Roth however, is a hit or miss kind of guy, in my opinion. I really enjoyed Cabin Fever and thought it was easily his best film I’ve seen that he has directed. I even sort of enjoyed Aftershock, as it was tense and a fast moving ride. I don’t hate dark … Continue reading Knock Knock: Disappointing Pizza

Dias de los Muertos Sabado (second draft)

I am writing this in order to warn anybody who will listen. I know people will automatically assume I am a cuck or that I am someone who has turned my back on what makes the red pill community what it is but I don’t care. Even if there is only the slightest chance someone might heed this warning, it is necessary. I find it ironic that for all of my bluster and anger it took me until my life was in danger to figure out my mistakes. Like you all, I was a member of the red pill community. … Continue reading Dias de los Muertos Sabado (second draft)

Dias de los Muertos: Lunes pt 1-3

Carter punched his younger brother in the side hard. The younger boy cried out in pain and squealed. “Hey grasshopper, we are here” Carter said while grinning like a loon. Ken, blinked the tears out of his eyes and looked around to see the fields of wine stalks that made up the vineyards surrounding his grandfather’s ranch. Ken and his elder brother Carter were going with their eldest sister Sayu to stay at their grandparent’s place for a month. Neither of the boys wanted to go, but it was important to their grandparents and so it was important to their … Continue reading Dias de los Muertos: Lunes pt 1-3

Dias de los Muertos Lunes: pt 3

Before either brother could say anything they heard their sister calling them. The two boys exchanged knowing looks and proceeded to join their sister. The courtyard in the center of the temple always made Carter feel queasy. The area smelled of jasmine and other sweet odors that turned his stomach. The incense was always heavy and the entire area was dominated by many candles and elaborate candelabras. Tall statuary of various ethereal creatures and many armed humanoid monstrosities stood in the corners of the courtyard. These stone behemoths were eerie sentinels and always made whoever entered the courtyard uneasy. Sitting … Continue reading Dias de los Muertos Lunes: pt 3

Dias de los Muertos: Lunes part 2

Grandfather and Grandmother were extremely old school and insisted in being addressed as Grandfather and Grandmother. The ranch was their pride and joy and had been their special place for as long as Carter could remember. Ken and Carter followed Sayu and sniggered as she fumbled with the keys and even almost tripped again on her kimono. Sayu glared at them and this just made both of the brothers grin like idiots as she looked like a cute chipmunk when she glared at people. Suddenly with a loud crack that startled all three, the door flew open. An elderly woman … Continue reading Dias de los Muertos: Lunes part 2
