★★★★ 1/2 out of ★★★★★ Vampires have been around for a long time (read: possibly forever?) and their story has been told in a weirdly limitless number of ways. Sexy vampires. Gory vampires. Child vampires. Deaf vampires. Suffice it to say, the votes are in and humanity LOVES its vampires!

Eric’s Review: Killer Sofa (2019)
★★1/2 out of ★★★★★
Every now and again, you run into a title that you just need to check out because it seems so absurd. Remarkably, it’s better than I expected (low threshold there) but it also isn’t as gonzo as I expected it to be. Done with heart on a low budget, it’s entertaining, warts and all.

Mike and Eric’s Review of It: Chapter Two (2019)
Mike’s Review: ★★★ out of ★★★★★
Eric’s Review: ★★★1/2 out of ★★★★★
The big horror movie that everyone has been waiting for has landed. It: Chapter Two delivers a good looking, well-acted and often scary film that is also overly long, and has a mechanical narrative style, but is, in the end, an enjoyable outing.

Mike’s Review: House on Sorority Row (1983)
★★.5 out of ★★★★★ College isn’t for everyone. There’s peer pressure, there’s social acclimatization, there’s the freshman 15, there’s the daily grind of keeping one’s grades in check to maintain that almighty scholarship, and then there’s the relationships. The social bond that’s created can be a lasting and spiritually satisfying affinity, but the bond can go so deep that it’ll eventually turn collegiate relations sour and crazy.
