The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast Ep. 015: Black Is Not a Color

TWHMP 015 ArtworkBRIEF EXPLANATION: This podcast is not the Horror Movie Podcast for which this site and feed are dedicated. Horror Movie Podcast is slated to release Episode 001 on October 25, 2013. You can read the full explanation and the background on the re-release of The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast (and of Horror Metropolis) at the bottom of the show notes for this episode.

SHOW NOTES:

In Episode 015, Midnight Corey takes the reins of The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast, at Jay of the Dead’s request, after Jay had to step down from the host’s chair. But not to worry, Jay will return to host Horror Metropolis in about 12 weeks from now, and TWHMP is still the same great show with your favorite horror hosts: Midnight Corey, BillChete, Dr. Shock and Terror Tovey. This is a weekly podcast where each host assigns a horror movie to another one of the hosts, round-robin style.

Episode 015 is dedicated in memory of actor James Farentino, who starred in “Dead & Buried” (1981). Continue reading

Dark Skies (2013)

Dark Skies DVD coverVerdict: 4.5 ( Avoid )

Premise: A suburban family of four is terrorized at night by otherworldly visitors with malevolent intentions.

Mini Review: “Dark Skies” is an alien abduction movie, something like “Communion” (1989), “Fire in the Sky” (1993) and “The Fourth Kind” (2009), but it’s inferior to those. In fact, it’s more of a Thriller than a Horror film, and all the creepiest parts of the movie are given away in the trailer. And it has to be said: The appearance of the aliens is weak, both literally and figuratively. But the performances are good, particularly Keri Russell and J.K. Simmons. Only about half the film’s scares work; the other half are duds. “Dark Skies” actually borrows quite a bit from “Signs” (2002) and the screenwriting of M. Night Shyamalan. But aside from a few creepy moments, “Dark Skies” is ultimately underwhelming with an hour and 45 minutes of set-up and not enough pay-off.

Directed by Scott Stewart. Starring Keri Russell, J.K. Simmons, Josh Hamilton. Sub-genre: Alien Abduction / Thriller. Runtime: 105 min. MPAA rating: PG-13 (for violence, terror throughout, sexual material, drug content and language – all involving teens). U.S. theater release: February 22, 2013. DVD release: n/a. Country: U.S. Language: English. Mini Review by Jay of the Dead. 0006.
