#CinemaSunday: Horror Flicks On Netflix This Month

The month of October provides many wonderful excuse to curl up with a good horror film. The crisp Fall weather, the countdown to Halloween, and Cinema Sunday makes it’s return to thenikkisin.com.


Netflix (Canadian version because I live in Drakeville) has you covered if you don’t want to make your way to the movie theatre (to spend 30+ dollars to sit in someone else’s sweat and not be able to pause the film to go get snacks). I’ve done you a favor and compiled a short list of some of the MANY spoopy flicks available on the major streaming service this month.

(No chill was harmed in the making of this list)


Fun fact: Netflix did not sponsor this post but they are more than welcome to sponsor my site tbh.

#CinemaSunday: The Babysitter (2017)

Intro

Sorry if you haven’t been able to reach me because I’ve been cooped up watching all the spooky things.  This week’s pick isn’t as scary as it is just f*cked up and gory.

SINopsis

GENRE: Satanic gore/Slasher

I don’t think I ever remember my babysitter when I was growing up being hot or fun but maybe the 90’s were a different time for babysitter looks. Anyway, things are different for our small protagonist Cole who discovers his hot and cool babysitter is part of a cult. After witnessing the sacrifice of a teen, Cole must escape his house before he is next on the chopping block (get it? chopping block? murder?). On the roster of cast members is Filthy Fangs record label founder and former Disney Channel star Bella Thorne, some dude from Vine, and Robbie Amell. Given Amell is in the film lets take a minute to reflect on how this 30-year-old man keeps getting roles as teenagers yeah? But he’s Canadian so he gets a pass from me, a bias pass but a pass none the less.

Review

Although this film was clearly made for the late 90’s, and early 2000’s babies, and of course this generations version of a straight to DVD when it was sent straight to Netflix, I still think it’s a lot of fun. There were plot turns I didn’t really see coming and I’m still unsure if this helped or hurt the movie but the nature of film is entertainment and gosh damn it I was entertained.

#CinemaSunday: Night Of The Creeps (1986)

Intro

I told you #CinemaSunday was back for a limited time in celebration of the greatest holiday: HALLOWEEN. Like any normal person, I started my spoopy movie marathons in September and came across this classic. Let’s get the 2018 Cinema Sunday season started with Night Of The Creeps. (Thanks Brian).

SINopsis

GENRE: Horror/Sci-Fi

In a feeble attempt to get his friend laid two friends pledge to a fraternity. When part of the hazing includes a prank involving a dead body the two dweebs unleash killer-aline-slugs onto campus.

Review

The opening of the film begins in the 50’s and if you know me you know how happy that makes me. I like the film with the idea that it was a drive-in movie so it’s got that niche fun to it.

Rating

5 seasons of Skins (UK) out of 7

Carlson Young Teases At A New Project

MTV pulled another Finding Carter on us with the ending of Scream leaving no answers on who the accomplice(s) were. I’m still mad we got left on read with Finding Carter so doing this with Scream was a real kick in the face. What we did get from MTV/Netflix weekly’s Scream was megababe Carlson Young (who played Brooke Maddox). The 27 year old Texas native teased on Twitter that she was involved with a new project yesterday:

Fans, husband Isom Innis, and Scream pal Johnny Karna replied to the tweet with love and support for the upcoming Sundance film. I was truly hoping this was a teaser for an EP from Young and Innis (and the cats) but perhaps that’s a future endeavor?

See The New Star Wars: The Last Jedi Trailer

Okay, okay we all know I’m a trekkie at heart but as a film fanatic and an avid consumer of sci-fi I’ve always appreciated Star Wars. Except maybe when I saw Episode One with my brother and dad and fell asleep in the theatre…

The latest trailer tugs at my Carrie Fisher loving heartstrings and looks incredibly promising in terms of production value (with no surprise there tbh). I will admit I was worried when Disney took hold of the franchise however I think most fans were. No one was sure if they wanted a mouse with a lightsaber but I think the films are finding their shape, and place in the Disney world.

You can grab your tickets for the film now or wait until December and test your luck.

Paris Jackson Lands First Feature Film Role With Nash Edgerton

Determined to break the overwhelming shadow of her late father, the iconic Michael Jackson, Paris Jackson has her sights set on an acting career.

E! News reported that Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson (yea I went for the full name there y’all) has signed on for a feature film from Nash Edgerton, best known for ridiculous stunts  via The Equalizer, American Ultra, The Bling Ring, and The Great Gatsby.

Image result for paris jacksonAccording to MTV:

“The movie — which is set to be a comedy/thriller, and is backed by Amazon Studios — offers up a star-studded cast, with  Charlize Theron, Amanda Seyfried, Thandie Newton, and David Oyelowo also attached to the project.The title of the flick is TBD, but Jackson will apparently be playing an “edgy” 20-year-old named Penny, which is more or less the 19-year-old’s aesthetic anyway. Sounds like a fitting choice, and an exciting development for the star-in-the-making”.

My Childhood Nightmare Returns: Stephen King’s IT Teaser Trailer Released

So I have a lot of stupid fears, but my fear of clowns is justified. When I was a kid my dad showed me this movie and to this day I am still terrified of IT. Okay so I know in the original film the clown, Pennywise, is played by the LOVABLE Tim Curry but I can not see past that. The rumours of the remake of the film made me wonder if perhaps I could get over this fear?

WRONG.

SO VERY VERY WRONG NOW THAT I HAVE SEEN THE TRAILER. And yes,  I am aware that Pennywise is now played by that hottie (yes, I said hottie. Deal with it) from Hemlock Grove, and that the movie was mainly filmed in Toronto but I’m still frightened already.
With the recent success of ‘Get Out’ I’m glad to see 2017 bringing horror back to theaters even if it means I have to relive my childhood nightmares.
