Anticipation Alert: Antlers (2020)

Finally!  A horror movie about a killer moose!  Wait, what?  Antlers is NOT about a killer moose?  Goddammit.  Well, regardless – the new trailer is out and it got that horror bone in my body twitching.  Watch below and let’s discuss afterwards:

Glad to see Felicity still getting some work.  But anyway – kudos to whoever did the sound design and music for the trailer.  And only having one word of dialogue definitely amped the intensity factor.  Obviously, attaching Guillermo del Toro’s name to the project is a plus, but that same name was also attached to Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark (slight eye roll).

Antlers looks like a whole different beast though (literally), and even though the trailer somewhat showed the creature – I’m still super intrigued as to what might be going on. Unfortunately, we will have to wait until next year (more specifically April) to get a better look at that creature and everything else.  Until then, I shall hold out hope for that ‘killer moose’ movie that is just begging to be made.

5 Things I Learned From The New ‘Sinister 2’ Trailer

Who’s excited for Sinister 2 later this year?!?!  That was pathetic.  I said…..who’s excited for Sinister 2 later this year!!!!!!????  Still pathetic.  But anyway, yes Sinister 2 is coming whether you like it or not.  The sequel to the somewhat surprising 2012 hit starring Ethan Hawke is coming August 21st and the new trailer was unleashed the other week:

Now after digesting that, here are 5 things that I learned and observed from the Sinister 2 trailer:

1.  Shannon Sossamon is still acting.  Who knew.  Still have a crush btw. 

2.  Apparently, if you think you see something and you flash a flashlight at the spot enough times, something will definitely appear.

3.  Could this possibly be moonlighting as a Children Of The Corn sequel?

4.  Is Bagul the Michael Jackson of horror villains?  (c’mon, you can figure that one out)

5.  Somewhere in the world, Sherlock Holmes is laughing at Deputy So & So.  

Anticipation Alert: Goodnight Mommy (2015)

Move over Funny Games, it looks like there’s a new Austrian horror film in town!  And it only took about 18 years for it to happen.  It’s true, there isn’t an abundance of horror movies spewing from the republic of Austria – but it looks like they have a winner on their hands with Goodnight Mommy.

Ok, I have no idea what was being said in that trailer, but I do know two things: First, that was one hell of a slap the mother put on that kid.  And second, this movie looks creepy as fuck.  Early word about this one is that it lives up to the hype of the trailer by the way.  Goodnight Mommy revolves around a mother, who is a television personality, that goes in for some plastic surgery and comes home to her two sons “changed”.  You can tell from the trailer that things seem to go a bit awry when she does return, and what’s up with the masks that the kids are wearing?  I’m sure it will all make sense when Goodnight Mommy is finally released here in the US.  And that can’t come soon enough for me!
