Eric’s Review: Upgrade (2018)
★★★★1/2 out of ★★★★★
An ambitious Sci-fi action thriller that learns all the right lessons from its precedent source material. Upgrade is what the Robocop reboot should have been. It’s a smart, violent, and kinetic parable of the risks of merging flesh with technology.
Eric’s Review: Hereditary (2018)
★★★★★ out of ★★★★★
A stunning horror film debut from Ari Aster, who has delivered a terrifying tale of the disintegration of a family’s collective psyche, and the treachery of a matriarch that lasts long after she has died. Oscar. Worthy.
Eric’s Review: Blood Fest (2018)
★★★1/2 out of ★★★★★
FUN! This movie is pure dumb fun. And, I mean dumb in a loving way. This is Egerton’s tribute to the zanies that are horror movie fans. We’re a little obsessive.
Eric’s Review: St. Agatha (2018)
★★★★1/2 out of ★★★★★
A 1950’s tale of a desperate young pregnant woman who makes a costly decision to join a convent as a refuge of last resort. It might be the best scary nun movie you’ll see! (And yes, I know what that means.)
Eric’s Review: The Farm (2018)
★★1/2 out of ★★★★★

Mike’s Review: Dr. Butcher, M.D./Zombie Holocaust/Island of the Last Zombies/Zombi 3/Queen of the Cannibals (1982)
★★ out of ★★★★★
Ok, I gotta get something off my chest. I saw the trailer for this beauty back in 1985 and was so horrified by its content I could have sworn that I’d seen the whole film — front to back. This was some seriously dense scar tissue built up over the years. But alas, I’d never seen this flic. That was, until a couple weeks ago.
