Hello and a welcome back to your slightly delayed week in geek. Also, pay no attention to what Bat says, this is totally episode 168… not episode 167. Just in case you were confused by what you’re hearing versus what you’re reading. No theatrical review this week but we do have our second Halloween movie review with The Gallows as well as some geeky nerd news including: The Nintendo Switch, Logan trailer review, Guardians Vol 2 Trailer review and Red Dead trailer review. Yep, it’s a shite ton of trailers to talk about.
Our second streaming Horror movie was from one of our fans Kristi, and she choose
The Gallows. While both of us were pretty lukewarm on this movie we gave it a watch. I think I came out of it more positive than Bat honestly. There were plenty of scares, both of the jump and skin crawling kind. I thought this movie evoked the otherworldly feel of movies like Silent hill and Grave Encounters which surprised me. The movie isn’t great, but it’s a solid watch and makes the most of a low budget, small cast and rather silly concept. While you won’t be missing out on too much if you don’t see this movie we both felt that you would find yourself entertained. We both gave it a 3/5.
Next up we’re going to be watching my suggestion of Knock Knock. This movie centers around Keanu letting in 2 ladies from a storm, sexy things happen… and then it gets weird. We both talked about seeing this one in the theaters but never got around to it so this makes perfect fodder for October’s streaming suggestions. This one can be found on EpixHD if you have it.
You can suggest our final horror themed streaming movie that you want us to watch and review on future episodes that are on Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime or HBOgo.
