The next is “The Watchers” a supernatural horror film about a group of people stuck in a bunker in an enchanted forest surrounded by burrowing creatures who like to watch them at night as a form of. . .entertainment? Both films carry interesting ideas, but also present some somewhat glaring problems that making both films only fitfully entertaining.

Dog’s Movie House: “Abigail,” “Ministry Of Ungentlemanly Warfare” Two Exciting Movies. . .For Different Reasons!

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at two films, both very good, that feature their director’s signature styles. The first is “Abigail” from the directing duo known collectively as Radio Silence. It’s a vampire flick that, while not especially frightening, is a creepy, gory, funny, action packed good time with a villain that is sure to become a horror icon! The next is Guy Ritchie’s “The Ministry Of Ungentlemanly Warefare” an action flick based on the first real-life black ops mission carried out by the British during World War II.

Dog’s Movie House: “Night Swim” Intriguing, But Slight PG-13 Horror Film!

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at “Night Swim” a new horror film from Blumhouse studios that is an attempt to replicate the success of last year’s “M3GAN.” The good news is that the film is far better than the horrible trailers suggest. The bad news is that, unlike “M3GAN” “Night Swim” is hampered by it’s PG-13 rating and runs out of steam toward the end. Still the premise and the performances, along with a creeping sense of dread around the featured swimming pool for the film’s first half, make “Night Swim” a mostly entertaining horror film!
