Altar: A young family move to an isolated estate that the wife has been hired to restore, only to discover that the previous owner is reputed to have murdered his wife.

This one looks alright, but the trailer didn't really intrigue us all that much. It could end up being a good Haunted House flick though, so we'll hope for the best.

Crazy Bitches: A girls' weekend away turns into a nightmare when, one by one, they are killed by their own vanity.

We might be crazy bitches for wanting to see this one, but we're suckers for fun, sleazy slasher flicks, and that's exactly what Crazy Bitches looks like. Let's hope that it doesn't end up sucking, because it looks like it's a bit on the cheap side.

Digging Up the Marrow: A documentary exploring genre based monster art takes an odd turn when the filmmakers are contacted by a man who claims he can prove that monsters are indeed real.

We've been dying to see this new Adam Green movie for what seems like forever, and it's the first one that we'll be checking out this weekend. Well, maybe the second one, but we do really want to see it.

Girlhouse: A HALLOWEEN-style slasher for the digital age, it follows a beautiful young college student who, needing money for tuition, moves into a house that streams content to an X-rated website. After a deranged fan hacks in to determine the house's location, she finds herself in a terrifying fight for her life.

Dirty, naked Internet girls be stalked and killed by a maniac in messy ways... how in the world can anyone not want to see Girlhouse? *Feminists may not want to see this one, and we totally understand.

Love in the Time of Monsters: Two sisters travel to a cheesy tourist trap where they battle toxic monsters dressed in bigfoot costumes in order to save the ones they love.

Oh man, could this one ever end up being a trainwreck, but the trailer looks fun and interesting enough for us to give it a go, so we'll ignore our instincts and check it out. Please be good.

MockingjayKatniss Everdeen is in District 13 after she shatters the games forever. Under the leadership of President Coin and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta and a nation moved by her courage.

Eh... We really enjoyed the first two Hunger Games movies, but this third one was a bit of a letdown. Being that this is Part 1 of 2, it basically played like a set-up for the 2nd one, and so it wasn't all that exciting. It also felt overly-sentimental and sappy, and about 10 minutes in we were already tired of watching Jennifer Lawrence mope around and cry, and then mope around some more.

We should have waited until the 2nd movie was out and seen them back to back.

Treehouse: A teenage boy discovers the perpetrators of several brutal kidnappings in his home town.

This movie looks like it's going to be a kick-ass 80's throwback, and we're absolutely dying to see it. It's not on Amazon yet, so we may even venture into the realm of Cable In-Demand to check it out. Yes, we want to see it that bad.

Wyrmwood: Barry is a talented mechanic and family man whose life is torn apart on the eve of a zombie apocalypse. His sister, Brooke, is kidnapped by a sinister team of gas-mask wearing soldiers & experimented on by a psychotic doctor. While Brooke plans her escape Barry goes out on the road to find her & teams up with Benny, a fellow survivor - together they must arm themselves and prepare to battle their way through hordes of flesh-eating monsters in a harsh Australian bushland.

We enjoyed Wyrmwood for what it is (a low-budget, fun zombie survival flick), and we imagine it will probably please most of you zombie lovers out there. Read our review below for more details, and then give it a rent.

  1. I enjoyed GirlHouse. It was a decent little slasher with surprisingly good production values and acting. Cobrin is very likeable in it.
