Your Home for Horror

We explore new horrors with the recently released “Horror in the Forest” and one of the year’s biggest surprises, “Biosphere”.

We begin, as always, by talking about the latest in horror and film news.

Clickbait has been around since the dawn of the internet. So, it is little surprise that the news of a third Dune movie sent shockwaves throughout the internet. Of course, there has been no confirmation there will be a trilogy, but that did not stop fans from celebrating and both of us from complaining.

For years, people have warned about the increasing reliance on streaming networks. The chance of shows and movies being lost forever means little to people who grew up during the 1980s. Back then, you only had a few chances to see the stuff you really wanted. But now that the media giants are beginning to remove shows, should we be worried?

Then, it’s on to our featured film reviews, including one miss and one big hit. 

Horror in the Forest

DBS Films is a credit to the horror community. Their movies may not be the most well-known, but they look to their fans to cast parts and even get ideas.

Unfortunately, this does not hide the fact that Horror in the Forest (formerly Into the Forest) is not a very good movie. From poor acting to one of the flattest endings this year, it is a huge disappointment.

Biosphere is on the other end of the spectrum. The story of the last two men on earth running out of food sounds promising, but little else. Yet, thanks to a pair of incredible performances and a heartfelt story that will keep audiences guessing, it exceeds all expectations.

The film deals with a number of topical themes while mixing in visual gags. It is risky, engaging, and a hell of a lot of fun.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT:

Last week, we talked about a couple of standouts from our time covering the excellent Chatanooga Film Fest.
