It's all late-franchise sequels this week, a masochistic exercise to be sure. But it coulda been worse. Rings is a retread of The Ring with a few good scares (and a great Vincent D'onofrio). Phantasm: Ravager is an incoherent, messy labor of love - what else do you expect from that franchise? And Cult of Chucky surprised at least a couple of us with the groove it found, bringing some new energy with less of the silliness of Bride and Seed.
Next week: More new stuff! We're watching:
Seoul Station (Shudder)
The Babysitter (Netflix)
Super Dark Times (Amazon)
Our short is Phantom. Watch along and we'll chat atcha soon!

It's a decade-spanning week of lowered expectations here at Horror Show Hot Dog. Gerald's Game is good -- but it's not the mind-blowing greatness we were expecting. The Wolfman is the shortest and least fleshed-out of the old Universal monster movies, but it's fun enough. Dead Awake is....pretty damn bad.
Next week: Late-Franchise Sequels, because we're masochists!
Cult of Chucky (Amazon)
Phantasm: Ravager (Shudder)
Rings (Redbox, Amazon)
Our short for next week is Black Goat. Watch along and we'll see you next time!
