If you’ve ever wondered what a horror classic would look like as a ‘Lifetime’ movie, wonder no more! The Strangers: Chapter 1 (2024), directed by Renny Harlin, attempts to reboot Bryan Bertino’s original 2008 nightmare, but ends up delivering a bland, repetitive version that lacks the harrowing bite of its predecessor. “…lacks the harrowing bite of its predecessor.” The plot follows Maya (Madelaine Petsch) and her boyfriend Ryan (Froy Gutierrez), who are on a road trip to start a new life in the Pacific Northwest, or something. Their journey comes to an abrupt halt when their car breaks down ..read more

Vampires and sunglasses go together like cobwebs and creepy castles, but nobody looks as cool warning sunglasses at night as Wesley Snipes in Blade (1998). The Van Helsing character has come a long way since Bram Stoker’s Dracula was published back in 1897 but I think we can all agree he hit his peak in the late 90s. Trench coats, muscle cars, martial arts, one-liners! Blade was the greatest vampire hunter, here to rid the world of the ultimate evil: scum-sucking vampire elites, feasting on the living, controlling the population, and gettin’ freaky in their underground blood shower night clubs ..read more

I like heists. I like vampires. And well, I guess I also dig ballet now, too. Enter Abigail, who pirouettes into theaters, eager and armed to deliver on all three.
