It's a mediocre movie week for the HSHD team. Thankfully, we were just loopy enough to deliver a fun show. Curtains is an Argento-light tone poem (or poim, as Josh says) that ultimately doesn't fit together very well. Jack Frost 2 scares up a few laughs despite being shot and lit like a Saved by the Bell parody porno. Dark Water is the best of the week, but Matt and Josh both found it a little too plodding to deliver the goods.
Next week: A potpourri of old and new, foreign and domestic! We're watching:
Motel Hell (Amazon)
Lake Mungo (Shudder & Amazon)
Our short is The Birch. Watch along with us if you like, and we'll chat at you next week!

Josh was busy this week moving to a new house (and waiting for the cable company to hook up the Internet, dammit), so Megan and Matt pick up the slack with this Father's Day themed special edition.
Join us next week for our delayed review of:
Jack Frost 2 (all on Amazon Prime)
And our short, Daisy. Watch along if you'd like and we'll see you next week!

This week, we're discussing new horror flicks that have gotten a lot of attention in the genre. Split features an amazing performance from James MacAvoy, but can't quite overcome some silly plot choices (including one morally reprehensible one). Raw fascinates Josh and Charlie, but leaves Matt feeling a bit peckish. Hell House LLC provides some genuine scares--hard to do for folks who have seen nearly 500 horror movies in the past year. But is the found footage thing too overplayed?
Next week! Each one pick one from Charlie's weird-ass list of stuff on Amazon Prime.
Josh's pick: Curtains, based entirely on that poster
Charlie's pick: Dark Water, the original Japanese version
Matt's pick: Jack Frost 2, because he wants us all to suffer
Our short is Daisy. Watch along if you'd like and we'll see you next time.
Note that Josh is moving to a new house this week/weekend, so we may have another Very Special Episode before the three of us convene again.

Josh is unexpectedly out this week (don't worry, everything's cool), but Megan stepped in because she is awesome. And these were Megan's picks to begin with, so she ought to have to defend them. We review Pandorum, Conspiracy, and The Mad, along with our short, Mildred.
Next week: New stuff! We're watching:
Hell House, LLC (Amazon Prime)
Watch along with us and we'll catch you next week.

This week we celebrate the stars of American Gods by watching the good-to-mediocre movies they star in! Willard is a big hit with Matt and Josh, Tales from the Hood tickles Josh and Charlie, and we all agree that Uninvited is, well, not coming to our next shindig.
Next week! HSHD's Megan picks a potpourri of flicks:
Pandorum (Starz, Amazon)
The Conspiracy (Amazon)
The Mad (Amazon Prime)
Our short for the week is Mildred. Watch along with us and we'll see you next week!
