Relic is a stunning and stylish look into the psychology of our own mortality. Peering into the sinister world of a parent with dementia, debut writer/director Natalie Erika James leads us into some very dark, and rotted places. Everything we see is coated in a creepy black slime that keeps spreading its sickness. With a disease this devastating, no jump scares are needed to create a terrifying film with many distressing and emotional layers.continue reading Reel Review: The Haunting Horror of “Relic” (2020)

Cheer and Loathing
She’s a lover, he’s a fighter. Together, they’re CHEER AND LOATHING. Tune in to hear your hosts, Stephanie (Cheer) and Casey (Loathing), clash over the films they love — and the ones they love to hate.
Spring has sprung, and beautiful co-eds everywhere got to enjoy a break from the books and fun in the sun. But hopefully most avoided the backwoods bayous of the Deep South. Because, as this week’s episode proves (as if it needed proving), the only good thing to come out of the South is our co-host, Cheer!
Join us as we welcome the return of oddball Crispin Glover to the show, giving it all he’s got in an insane dual performance as psychotic twins in 2006’s SIMON SAYS. Plus, we dig up an obscure 80’s slasher, SHALLOW GRAVE (1987), that brings the requisite T&A but forgets to bring the cheesy fun.
