A suburban woman fights to be believed as she finds herself stalked by a threatening figure who returns to her house night after night. When she can’t get help from those around her, she is forced to take matters into her own hands.

Starring: Brea Grant, Hunter C. Smith, and Kristina Klebe

Directed by: Natasha Kermani

Written by: Brea Grant

  Some people are said to be “Lucky” to be in the position they’re in, while they might think of it more as they've worked hard to get there. May (Brea Grant) doesn't want to be called ‘lucky,’ as the audience is about to learn about her successes, and her struggles. She’s an author of a successful self-help book, and has done everything she can to promote it. Now she’s working on a second book, but having a harder time with this one. Her publisher is pressuring her to get it done, and this isn’t helping at all.

  Also not helping is the weird turn of events that start taking place at her house. A man (Hunter C. Smith) has made it his mission to try to kill her everyday. It starts one night where she alerts her husband Ted (Dhruv Uday Singh) to an intruder, and he takes care of it. The weirdness comes with his calm reaction to the break in, and hinting at this happening every night. While it might not be new to him, it certainly is to May and will definitely spark the audience’s attention, as this man continues to come after her.

  When Ted acts like this is normal, and then the cops kind of go along with her complaints it will definitely have the audience ready to figure out what’s happening here. Is she dreaming this, is it part of her new book, or is she stuck in a “Groundhog’s Day” scenario? All of those possibilities could have worked, but it’s more about the message than the story here. Each viewer can take it in a different way, but it feels like a display of a woman fighting her way through a man’s world. 

  Speaking of fighting, if the messaging isn’t for you than hopefully the brief battles between May and the man are. They start off kind of basic, but then grow over the course of the film. The man seems to learn different ways to come at her, as she continues to try and anticipate his arrival. Some fights are quick, and others are dragged out a little longer. The freaky part is that after it seems she has killed him he disappears, and does manage to come back the next day. And if that isn’t strange enough just wait until late in the film, and the fighting is taken to a new level.

  Brea does an excellent job as fans have come to expect from her. She does well at showing her character’s vulnerability at times, but also the character’s strength and fight in the end. The film takes a nice pace drawing the audience in with some mystery to start, and then slowly dropping hints at what May is really fighting. Admittedly, I was really drawn in on the possibilities here, and changing up the home invasion theme. While the message is important and they do a great job using this storyline to tell it, I can’t help wishing it had gone the more horror route and less message. Regardless, “Lucky” is still a good film with a creatively put together story. With that, I give it 3 pools of blood.

Horror Movie Survival Kit

Man Crates is a new company that ships awesome gifts for men in custom wooden crates that he has to open with a crowbar! At Man Crates, it is their mission to end the difficulties that have long been associated with buying gifts for men.  And what does Man Crates have to do with horror? Well, while they have a wide assortment of crates, they also have horror themed ones like their "Zombie Survival Crate." Someone at Man Crates asked me to create my own Horror Movie Survival Kit as part of their Halloween celebration so here we go! Us horror fans know that is usually takes a lot to survive a horror film. A lot of it comes from the person's will to live, and a little luck. Obviously those things don't come in a crate, so lets start by thinking about the kind of horror movies we could end up in. We have zombies, vampires, werewolves, ghosts, aliens, end of the world scenarios, and even sharknados! Even with a crate I'm not sure we could be totally prep

Starring: Lisette Alexis, John James Cronin, Pat Healy, Vinessa Shaw and Sierra McCormick Directed by: Sean King O’Grady Written by: Max Booth III A Popcorn Frights Film Festival Review   How many horror movies come to that part when a character says, “We Need To Do Something?” A big storm has hit, and forced a family to hunker down in one of their bathrooms for safety. Parents Diane (Vinessa Shaw) and Robert (Pat Healy) figured that was the best place to be with their teen daughter Melissa (Sierra McCormick), and young son Bobby (John James Cronin). In a way it turns out to be a good decision because a tree comes down onto the house destroying part of it. The family is safe except for one thing.   The tree has blocked the bathroom door, and left them stranded
