Dog’s Movie House: “Scream VI” A Very Good Continuation Of The Popular Franchise!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at “Scream VI,” the latest in the popular frachise that basically re-invented the slasher film back in 1996. This one is a direct continuation of the popular sequel from last year and it features the four survivors from that film trying to get on with their lives in The Big Apple as college students. They include siblings Sam and Tara (Melissa Barrera and Jenna Ortega) and the brother/sister duo of Mindy and Chad (Jasmin Savoy Brown and Mason Gooding). Just when things are starting to get back to normal, a new Ghostface killer shows up and starts picking off Sam’s friends left and right in an unknown vendetta against her. Everyone is a suspect as the meta-movie now moves into self-mocking “franchise” mode and these rules are tougher than ever for our heroes to follow. Can they figure out the identity of Ghostface and stop him before the masked killer butchers them all?Continue reading
Dog’s Movie House: “Sick” A “Scream” For The Covid Generation!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at a new film from acclaimed screenwriter Kevin Williamson (“Scream”). It’s called “Sick” and does the serial killer thing with a little bit of a twist: it takes place during those first few very scary months of the pandemic when shelter-in-place orders were in full force and not wearing a mask was an invitation to get your ass kicked. Watching this film I found myself experiencing an unpleasant sense of nostalgia as the camera roves along grocery stores with empty shelves and people manically wiping off all of their groceries with wipes after getting them home. Those were the days (and I never want to see them again!)!Continue reading
Dog’s Movie House: “M3GAN” A Wonderfully Entertaining Comedic Horror Film!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here after a couple of weeks off for the holiday with the first fun film of the new year. It’s called M3GAN and while it has a lot in common with everything from “Frankenstein” to “Child’s Play” it has enough wicked humor and originality to be its own thing! The plot involves a little girl named Cady (Violet McGraw) who loses her parents in a car accident and is sent to live with her aunt, a robotics engineer named Gemma (Alison Williams). Gemma, who’s not good with kids at all, decides to test a new project on her neice, an advanced robot named M3GAN (Model 3 Generative Android). Gemma, who works for a cutting edge toy company, has been developing this project on the side and is a perfect chance to kill two birds with one stone: test her new tech and help herself with taking care of her wounded niece.Continue reading
Dog’s Movie House: “Nope” Is Another Horror Winner From Jordan Peele!”
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with another audio review. This time I’m talking about “Nope” Jordan Peele’s latest horror film that just happens to be a spin on the alien invasion film. Good direction, great visuals, and a killer cast. “Nope” is a lot of thrilling fun that is now playing at theaters, including IMAX.
“Nope” deserves to be seen on the big screen! (I forgot to mention the rating in my broadcast: still kind of new to this!) 4 1/2 Out Of 5 On Kendog’s Barkometer! So Sayeth The Kendog!
Dog’s Movie House: “Men” Ambitious, Well Crafted Horror That May Not Be To Everyone’s Taste!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at the latest from notable director Alex Garland. The man is responsible for a couple of the most ambitious science fiction movies in the last ten years. Garland gave us “Ex Machina” and “Annihilation.” Now he’s back and working in the realm of horror. His latest is called “Men” and it has all the hallmarks of what makes Garland such a creative and talented filmmaker. “Men” is atmospheric, expertly paced, and features excellent performances from his two leads, especially Rory Kinnear in multiple roles. It also has something of an ambiguous climax, another hallmark of Alex Garland’s work. It could be a metaphorical journey involving a woman’s grief or an incomprehensible horror fever dream, or maybe both. It’s up to you to decide, but if you keep an open mind “Men” is quite the rewarding experience!Continue reading
