Fantasy Horror Month wraps in a wonderful way with “The Head Hunter”; plus a look at the new Tesla-inspired sci-fi film “Final Frequency”.
ABOUT THIS EPISODE (134):
Spencer is not the type of movie we would normally talk about on this show, but its new poster is too beautiful to be ignored. Someone on the show also learns that Princess Diana is not her Christian name. We also talk about Denis Villeneuve’s reasoning behind limiting how Dune can be watched.
We have covered some interesting (re: bad) movies in the second half of 2021. Final Frequency is in the odd space where it is not so bad it is good, while also never being truly terrible.
What you do end up getting is a movie that makes no sense, villains without any motives, and one of the strangest LARPing scenes ever.
The Head Hunter is a nice escape from the world of deadly earthquakes and Lou Ferrigno Jr.
The final entry for Fantasy Horror Month is the tale of a father who is looking to get revenge for the loss of his daughter. It is filled with fantasy elements and horror tropes. It also has little action and dialogue.
Does this combination work? Tune in to find out!
The Head Hunter is available to stream on Shudder, Hoopla, Directv, or AMC Plus. Watch the trailer here. Final Frequency will release on VOD on August 31st.
