For Hispanic Heritage Month, we review the supremely strange “The Untamed” and lock ourselves down for a look at “Shelter in Place”.
ABOUT THIS EPISODE (137):
We begin as always with a discussion of the latest and greatest horror news.
Elvira is a horror icon that is instantly recognizable even to non-horror fans. We talk about her upcoming return to Shudder and our memories of the queen of Halloween camp. We also talk about the future of Star Trek and if we are interested in what happens next.
Next, it’s time for our Movie Review Spotlight.
Shelter in Place sounds like a basic scary movie that is taking advantage of the pandemic with its title. Surprisingly, quarantine plays a huge part in everything that happens. We discuss whether good acting can overcome inconsistent characters, whether there is such a thing as too many good ideas and the importance of having a strong ending.
Finally, we move on to our Featured Presentation.
The Untamed is this week’s pick for Hispanic Heritage Month, and it is a doozy. The movie is about sex, love, wants, needs, passion, lust, and an alien that has a lot of tentacles and knows how to use them. Is this considered erotic horror? Did it go too far? And how did they get so many animals to cooperate?
Shelter in Place is currently available to rent or buy on most major VOD platforms. The Untamed is available to stream on Shudder, DIRECTV, Spectrum On Demand, and AMC Plus.
