    Welcome the newest episode of Dark Discussions, your place for the discussion of horror film, fiction, and all that’s fantastic. Infectious diseases are in the news today and horror and thriller films have been using them as a plot device for years. One of the most popular was THE THING (1982). Since then there has been a lot of movies that have copied it quite nicely including ALIEN RAIDERS (2008) and THE THAW (2009). Now in 2020, the internationally produced film SEA FEVER has arrived and it is getting positive reviews.

    16/07/2020 Duración: 02h11min

    Welcome the newest episode of Dark Discussions, your place for the discussion of horror film, fiction, and all that’s fantastic. Though very prolific and considered one of the best, H.P. Lovecraft’s works have rarely been adapted to film, and if so, very loosely. Director Richard Stanley, a very talented director who was derailed earlier in his career by producers, is back with the new film COLOR OUT OF SPACE (2020) based off the story by Lovecraft entitled THE COLOUR OUT OF SPACE. The Gardner family move to a rural farm that has been in the family for years. One day a meteor crash lands into the backyard near an old well. Soon it dissolves and some alien being moves into the down its chute. As the days go by, plants and trees begin to grow strangely, and the family starts to act erratically. The Gardners begin to wonder if something evil has taken over their homestead. The film stars two well known character actors as the parents, Nicolas Cage and Joely Richardson. New comer Madeleine Arthur plays

    Welcome to Cinema A La Carte: The Podcast. Part of the Dark Discussions Network. With one of the worst titles in movie history, BABY DRIVER (2017) was released world wide. With such a title many folks thought it was a comedy or a family film and as a result the target audience may have ignored it during its theatrical release (including one of your podcast co-hosts). The film, directed by Edgar Wright, received positive reviews and still was able to make a large profit at the box office on top of its meager film budget. Baby (Ansel Elgort) has been forced to work for a local crime boss since he was sixteen to pay back for doing a car jacking. Now he is a driver for various robberies. When he meets Debora (Lily James) at a local diner, his life seems to finally be moving to a new phase of respectability. Unfortunately for him, the crime boss may not let him out of his debt. Besides the nominal leads of Ansel Elgort and Lily James, the film has a cast of big names including Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx, J

    04/07/2020 Duración: 02h03min

    Welcome the newest episode of Dark Discussions, your place for the discussion of horror film, fiction, and all that’s fantastic. Dabbling in science fiction, some of H.P. Lovecraft’s horror tales transcends genres in a sense. Some include THE COLOUR OUT OF SPACE and AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS. One of his most important (and famous) is THE WHISPERER IN DARKNESS. It’s another one of his epic length novellas that touches such emotions as paranoia and fear. When Massachusetts native Albert Wilmarth, a college professor of folklore, reads about strange things floating in the great floods in Vermont, he enters the fray to try to calm the fears of the locals. Soon a well-educated well-to-do farmer named Henry Akeley sends Albert a private letter showing that there may be more to the stories than he thinks. Albert is suddenly intrigued about this mystery. Now involved, unbeknownst to him, he may be a target of a wicked evil. THE WHISPERER IN DARKNESS originally appeared in the magazine Weird Tales in Au

    24/06/2020 Duración: 02h08min

    Welcome the newest episode of Dark Discussions, your place for the discussion of horror film, fiction, and all that’s fantastic. Art house horror, or science fiction, is not that uncommon. Some recent examples are THE LIGHTHOUSE (2019) or MIDSOMMAR (2019). Spain has had their share including ERREMENTARI (2017). Now in 2020, THE PLATFORM has come also from Spain. More fable than horror or science fiction, the movie has drawn notice being available “free” on Netflix. A man named Goreng volunteers to enter a “prison” allowing folks to gain awards such as college degrees, and various other incentives. However, it being a prison, actual criminals are there as well. When he arrives, he discovers that there are 333 levels and a platform containing food travels down to each level to feed the jailed. Unfortunately the lower you are, the less food is left leaving many desperate and fraught. The movie is the directorial debut of Galder Gaztelu-Urrutia. Many critics call it a masterpiece and some movie viewe

June is LGBTQ pride month, and once again Halloween Boutique Psychotronic Reviews heads to the arthouse to deliver the first of two June episodes that focus on LGBTQ cinema.

    Welcome the newest episode of Dark Discussions, your place for the discussion of horror film, fiction, and all that’s fantastic. What would you do if you had wishes? Money? Sex? Fame? But what happens if it goes dire and things turn out badly? Such famous horror stories like “The Monkey’s Paw” show this. And many movies. But the new horror film THE ROOM (2020) shows a different spin on an old tale. Young couple Kate (Olga Kuylenko) and Matt (Kevin Janssens) move into a fixer-upper estate out in the rural sections of their county. As they begin to renovate, they discover that the electric power grid is archaic and that a hidden room exists in the master upstairs hall. When something odd occurs, they begin to discover a strange unexplained power within coming from the room. Relatively unknown French director Christian Volckman takes the reign in the adaptation of French screenwriter Eric Forestier’s script. Starring Ukrainian actress Olga Kuylenko and Flemish actor Kevin Janssens, the film is a

    Welcome the newest episode of Dark Discussions, your place for the discussion of horror film, fiction, and all that’s fantastic. A darling on the festival circuit, THE LODGE (2020), was highly anticipated before arriving on disc and VOD. With the term “elevated horror”, THE LODGE began to receive buzz as plot points were released and the trailer was shown. Austrian directors, Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala, had already made the critically acclaimed horror film GOODNIGHT MOMMY (2014) and this was their first English language production. After the tragic death of their mother, two young children come to live with their father, an investigative reporter known for writing books on cults. When the father plans to marry Grace (Riley Keough), his children aren’t happy. So to get everyone on the same page, they head to their remote second home in Massachusetts during the Christmas holiday to try to work out their differences.

    Welcome the newest episode of Dark Discussions, your place for the discussion of horror film, fiction, and all that’s fantastic. The zombie TV show, Z NATION, was almost a midnight movie take on the zombie genre. With its crazy over the top episodic storytelling, it was a curiosity. Now, in 2019, the creators of the show have created a new series, loosely connected to their original series. BLACK SUMMER (2019) appeared on Netflix with a very different tone. It had its genre elements, but any dark humor or over the top scenes disappeared and were replaced with more horrific elements. After parts of the world have become uninhabitable, people are reassigned to neighborhoods that are clear of the pandemic. When an outbreak occurs in a newly established community, a group of survivors that miss the scheduled evacuation buses must fight to break out and escape from the infected while trying to prove they themselves are not infected. The show stars actress/model Jamie King along with an ensemble cast of a

    Welcome the newest episode of Dark Discussions, your place for the discussion of horror film, fiction, and all that’s fantastic. Cults have been portrayed many times in horror films as the final antagonist. These movies include the comedic SATANIC PANIC (2019) or darker films such as 1BR (2020) or THE INVITATION (2015). And many do follow similar themes and plot developments. Some change it up a bit such as THE SACREMENT (2013) using found footage, and the new horror film WE SUMMON THE DARKNESS (2020) actually even changes up the protagonists. It’s 1988, and three girls head to a heavy metal concert. When they arrive in the parking lot, they meet up with three boys who seem to want to “party” with them after the show. Unfortunately, a string of kidnappings by Satanists have occurred around the area. Heading back to one of their houses, what was supposed to be a fun extended evening turns out to be a horrific nightmare. Director Marc Meyers is known for the docu-drama MY FRIEND DAHMER (2017).

Pica is a behavioral health disorder in which a person will non-food items. So things that would be swallowed would be marbles or coins but also in extreme cases, things such as paperclips or tacks. Sometimes this condition is related to issues much more inherent in the individual, including depression and melancholy. That’s what the new 2020 film SWALLOW tackles. Hunter (Haley Bennett), a once working class woman, has married into a wealthy Hudson Valley family. Seeming to be ignored by her husband Ritchie (Austin Stowell) and treated indifferently by her in-laws, she begins to unravel while alone at home. After watching a self-help documentary on television, she begins to swallow various objects. When she discovers she is pregnant the issue persists leading to dark secrets in her past that may finally catch up to her. The film is written by first time director Carlo Mir

    Welcome the newest episode of Dark Discussions, your place for the discussion of horror film, fiction, and all that’s fantastic. With the coronavirus having closed multiple public places, movie cinemas have been one of the most obviously hit. As a result, many Hollywood productions have been postponed for a theatrical release. So low budget fair like THE WRETCHED (2020), has risen to the top box office for the last month because of drive-in theaters playing it. Yet is this IFC Midnight production worthy of holding this status? Ben (John-Paul Howard), a high schooler, heads to his recently separated father’s house for the summer to try to regroup after some recent trouble. While there he notices the cute family next door. As he gets a job at the local harbor and finds local friends, an ancient evil re-enters the town after thirty-five years of dormancy.
