After escaping abduction, a frantic woman must coerce an exhausted truck driver to hide in the back of her truck for the night. The two women take refuge not knowing what the rest of the night has in store.

Starring: Pamela Jayne Morgan, Juliette Alice Gobin, and Peyton Michell Edwards

Directed by: Max Strand

Written by: Todd Rawiszer and Max Strand

  “Goodbye Honey” is about two woman who in their own ways had to say goodbye at one point, and now hope to not have to say goodbye permanently. After the death of her husband, Dawn (Pamela Jayne Morgan) has found herself continuing his trucking business. With her truck full of furniture, she has pulled over to rest for the night. While on a call with a client, she’s interrupted by Phoebe (Juliette Alice Gobin), who desperately wants to use her phone.

  Dawn eventually lets Phoebe in the cabin, but the two get off to a rocky start. Dawn has lost the keys to the truck, and broke her phone in their chance encounter. Phoebe is trying to remain calm, but she continues to tell Dawn that someone is coming to get her. Dawn is having a problem trusting her, as their conversation moves from the cabin to the back of the truck. The tension between the two rises before Dawn is forced to deal with noises coming from outside the truck.

  This film is full of tension from the moment these women meet until the end. A lot of it starts with Dawn and her distrust of everyone. Dawn just wants to do her deliveries, and hold onto her truck because it’s like holding onto her husband. She wants to help Phoebe, but it isn’t until Phoebe tells her full story that Dawn can let her guard down.

  And what’s Phoebe’s story? Well at first the audience will also wonder if she can be trusted. Then she tells her story and the true horror of the film makes its appearance. A horrific tragedy changes several people’s lives including Phoebe. No doubt the audience will join Dawn in trusting her, but now these traumatized women will have to find a way to survive the night.

  “Goodbye Honey” might not get off to a fast start, but it will leave a lasting impression by the end. Losing a husband and continuing his business is tough enough, but Phoebe’s story is on a whole new level. Once her story is shown the audience will be on the edge of their seats waiting to see her fate. The film will make the audience wait with its slow pace, and distractions before the main event takes place. Juliette and Pamela really come into their characters as this goes on. With that said, I give it 3.5 pools of blood.

Silhouette is the story of Jack and Amanda Harms who, after the passing of their young daughter, set out into seclusion to begin their lives anew. Quickly upon their arrival, things go awry when the sins of their past come back to haunt them.

Starring: April Hartman, Tom Zembrod, and Jessica Dawn Willis

Directed and written by: Mitch McLeod 

  If it’s not your shadow, you might not want a dark “Silhouette” following you! Sometimes people need a new location to try and start over, and that’s what Amanda (April Hartman) and Jack (Tom Zembrod) are attempting. They’re trying to hang on to their marriage after the loss of their daughter, and some other martial issues. While the new home seems nice something still seems to be bothering Amanda.

  It doesn’t help that Dawn (Jessica Dawn Willis), who is a neighbor, comes over to introduce herself, and catches Jack’s eye. With no shame, Amanda points out to her that she’s Jack’s type. It didn’t take long for old issues to pop up again. However, Amanda might have more to worry about than the neighbor. She seems to be having a battle for her own sanity, as it appears something is haunting her.

  While the film is about a couple, a lot of the horror is going to take place at Amanda’s expense. This might seem weird but by the time this one ends it will all make sense, and puts a great punctation on why things unfold the way they do. As for the horror, it might not make the audience jump out of their seats, but it’s certainly creepy. The silhouette that continuously haunts her is plenty scary looking, and the way they make it slowly appear should leave some with chills.

  Amanda is a character who is suffering with a lot of emotional issues, and April does a good job bringing out these emotions on screen. It’s great watching her work, and then top it off with the horror lurking in the background. However,  building all of these moments seems to take a little too long. The pace is a touch slow, and maybe some scenes could have been cut short. They seem to want to give Jack time to express his issues, but he does that while spending more time than is needed with Dawn. 

  “Silhouette” supplies a familiar setting with another struggling couple. Like many before, they’ll soon realize they can’t run from their problems. Their marriage issues continue especially when a good looking neighbor stops by. Amanda’s awkward behavior pushes Jack away again, and leaves her to be haunted by an extremely creepy figure. It all leads to a surprising yet depressing ending. With that said, I give it 2.5 pools of blood.

Episode 205: “Night of the Living Late Show” 

Simon has invented an incredible virtual reality experience that allows him to join in on his favorite films… but what happens when virtual reality becomes Simon’s actual reality?

Written by: Dana Gould

Directed by: Greg Nicotero

Cast: Justin Long, D'Arcy Carden, Hannah Fierran

  Simon has spent a long time trying to invent a special virtual reality machine, and it looks like he has finally got it to work. It looks like a tanning booth, but it’s a machine that actually will take a person’s mind into a movie. Simon’s favorite movie is “Horror Express,” and that’s exactly where goes. He quickly becomes obsessed with it, and that doesn’t sit well with his wife.

  Now the tanning booth looking virtual reality machine seemed weird at first, but comes to make sense in the end. It’s interesting watching Simon interact with characters inside the movie, as he takes it like a kid in a candy shop. Besides just wanting to experience the film, he has other reasons to be there. Fans should appreciate what ultimate happens to Simon and his virtual reality experience. As a bonus, the opening and closing have the ghoul enjoying some virtual reality of his own. And of course like the rest of the season, this one is perfectly cast!

 A mixed-up guy in the midst of a quarter-life crisis drags his big sister along on a Bigfoot-hunting expedition.

Starring: Jackson Trent, Anna Fagan, and Donny Ness

Directed by: Joshua Land 

Written by: Harrison Demchick

  “Ape Canyon” seems like as good a place as any to search for the most famous missing ape. Cal has been obsessed with Bigfoot since an early age. As a grown up, some like his sister Samantha (Anna Fagan) would think he would have grown out of it. However, after his mother past away his desire to find Bigfoot has hit all time highs. He’s booked a trip to Ape Canyon, and is dragging along his older sister to find the ape!

  Samantha isn’t thrilled about this at all, but realizes she needs to be there for him. They join a small group of people, and head off into the woods. Already with her doubts about this trip, things get worse in the first morning when everyone wakes to find their possessions missing. Apparently their guide stole everything, and has left them stranded. Samantha is upset, and it doesn't help that Cal wants to continue on his search for Ape Canyon. It looks like this adventure has just begun for the siblings.

  First off, if the audience is waiting for Bigfoot they aren’t going to see much of him. Bigfoot is used more as a backdrop to this story, and the reason the siblings have found themselves lost in the woods. There’s a fun animated cartoon of Bigfoot that’s used a few times to explain a couple of things like why that area is called Ape Canyon. It's a unique drawing of Bigfoot that still leaves a lot of mystery to the Ape.

  Instead this story’s focus is really about the relationship between the siblings. Both are mourning the loss of their mother, and are handling it in different ways. Samantha has been able to continue with her life, but Cal is in crisis-mode. No matter what happens in this story he has to make it to the canyon. Samantha battles between trying to be herself, and finding a way to help her brother. While they fight each other along the way, they truly are at their best when they look out for each other.

  He might not seem like it at all times, but overall Cal is a likable character. He’s just struggling through a tough time in his life, and is taking his sister and the audience on a journey that he hopes will bring him peace. Jackson and Anna do an excellent job of portraying the siblings, and all the emotional baggage their characters carry. Well timed comedy helps move this story along leading to a dramatic and emotionally ending. The search for Bigfoot continues as I give “Ape Canyon” 3 pools of blood.

Episode 204:


A drain clog turns out to be more than just a little matted hair and soap scum, and a down-on-his luck plumber is tasked with getting the problem under control. Trouble is, the problem has a mind of its own.

Written by: Daniel Kraus

Directed by: Joe Lynch

Cast: Eric Edelstein, Barbara Crampton, Selena Anduze

  A plumber’s job can get dirty and nasty. Who knows what they will find while cleaning out the pipes? This plumber is tasked with finding out what’s clogging the pipes in an old building. His search leads him to an apartment of a nice lady who leaves him to his job while she picks up her daughter. She left at the right time because he’s about to find something very unusual in her pipes!

  Creepshow continues put on some great episodes because of fun storylines, and terrific casting. Eric Edelstein is fantastic as the plumber here. He plays it so well when things go wrong here, and works great with Selena. Barbara is excellent as usual. The story offers a good mix of humor and horror with enough room for some good old fashion justice.



A top-secret government compound is evacuated as the last few scientists in the building fight to contain the creature they’ve been studying- but is the true threat one of them?

Written by: John Esposito

Story by: Greg Nicotero and John Esposito

Directed by: John Harrison

Cast: Drew Matthews, Denise Crosby, Nicholas Logan, Brooke Butler, Brittany Smith, Leonard Butler

  A man is locked up, and just found new representation. His new lawyer questions him about what happened at the government compound he worked at. He explains how things went wrong during their research, and how he eventually ended up in his cell. Now it’s time to defend him, or watch him face his punishment.

  This short story has a few twists and turns to it as the audience sees what the man goes through. Was it really his fault, the fault of the head researcher, or the thing they found out there? Speaking of a thing, this story should spark reminders of “The Thing.” There’s some good bloody moments at the compound, but the fun part comes with how the walls close in at the end of this story!

Grey is an indie singer who is having visions that she is a wolf. When she gets an invitation to work with notorious music producer Vaugh Daniels at his remote studio in the woods she begins to find out who she really is. 

Starring: Lauren Beatty, Greg Bryk, and Katherine King So

Directed by: Amelia Moses

Written by: Wendy Hill-Tout and Lowell

  Horror fans can be “Bloodthirsty,” and they'll probably expect a lot of blood spilled in this one! Grey (Lauren Beatty) is trying to build on her music career, but she’s having some personal struggles. She’s having problems finding the words for her next album, and having some nightmares that she can’t figure out. She’s even seeing a doctor to talk about her issues, and he’s prescribed some medicine that doesn’t appear to help.

  Things begin to turn around when a music producer, Vaughn (Greg Bryk), agrees to help her with her music. Grey and her girlfriend Charlie (Katherine King So) take the trip up to his home/studio to stay with him, and work on her music. They get off to a slow start as she continues to struggle with her visions, and he has somewhat cryptic words of encouragement. However the more time the two spend together the more her music begins to take shape. She’s also doing some transformation as a person as well.

  This is interesting combination of music and horror. As things play out, the movie certainly sets aside some time for Grey to sing her songs. While it might not be a shock at what’s happening here, the songs she sings are a big clue to it. Yes, she’s got some werewolf in her, and Vaughn is doing his best to pull it out of her. She gives up on being a vegan, and has some changes in her attitude that puts some distance in-between Charlie and herself. 

  Once horror fans figure out that werewolves are involved they’ll be out for blood, and transformations. It does get bloody, and creates a memorable moment or two. Grey will definitely get a nice mouth full of blood. As for transformations, there’s more facial effects than full body ones. The special effects aren’t bad, and do well with where the movie goes. It’s more about this wolf coming of age and her singing than hunting and killing people.

  Fans might not consider werewolves to be musical creatures, but they’re about to meet one that can do more than just howl. This starts out with some mystery about Grey and her issues, but it will soon become clear what’s bothering her. Once the wolf in her starts to be unleashed her music starts to take shape. There will be blood, and transformations as Grey starts to find her place as a musician and a wolf. “Bloodthirsty” is lyrically delicious, and has just enough blood to quench the audience’s thirst. With that said, I give it 3.5 pools of blood.

When a debilitating sickness spreads across a long hotel hallway, a few scattered victims fight for survival, and try to escape from the dark narrow stretch of isolated carnage. 

Starring: Julian Richings, Carolina Bartczak, and Mark Gibson

Directed by: Francesco Giannini

Written by: Derrick Adams, Francesco Giannini, and Adam Kolodny

  “The Hall” isn’t somewhere you would expect to die, but it’s about to happen. Val (Carolina Bartczak), Brenden (Mark Gibson), and their daughter Kelly (Bailey Thain) are staying at a hotel. After a rude encounter outside at the hands of Brenden, Val apologizes and introduces herself to a pregnant woman named Naomi (Yumiko Skaku) in the hall.  They don’t know it yet, but the two women will cross paths again.

  That isn’t the only time that the audience will see Brenden lose his temper. He apparently has a short fuse with his wife, and even daughter as times. On the other side, Naomi has also experienced her own abuse from her future baby’s daddy. She has traveled a long way to escape the abuse, while Val is about to stage her own escape. The problem here is that while both end up running from abuse, they're going to be equally challenged to avoid a virus that has been released in the hotel.

  It won’t take too long before the audience realizes that this horror movie has a few messages it wants to get out. The easiest one to pick up on might be the issue of domestic abuse. There’s two women here who are each at their own stage of dealing with it. Fresh off experiencing another round of abuse, Val has made the tough decision to leave her husband while at the hotel. It seems as if she’s doing it for her daughter as much as herself. Naomi hasn’t had her child yet, but she has already left its father behind. The audience will see what a tough decision this is for both of them, and the emotionally stress they go through.

  The other important message the movie has for the audience is about the virus. When not seeing the woman deal with their abuse situations, the audience sees them face this virus that been slowly spreading to people on their floor. Naomi already has it, and is trying to fight her way down the hall to escape. Val actually partially benefits from it, as it helps her get away from Brenden. Once she breaks free of him, she must also make her way down the hall to find Kelly, who she sent away to hide from Brenden. It’s here that the movie does an excellent job of creating tension, and suspense. It’s in no hurry to show what happens, especially watching Naomi scratch and pull her way down the hall, and around bodies. And where’s the message in all this? No spoilers but it comes with where the virus comes from, and where Val and her daughter end up in their attempt to escape.

  The “Hall” is built to deliver several messages to the audience. One is the seriousness of domestic abuse, and the tough decisions it makes people take. It does this with the help of two women, Val and Naomi, who come from different parts of the world but are experiencing a similar situation. The other issue is one that the world finds itself in now, and that’s dealing with a virus. It wants the audience to consider where the virus comes from, how it can be spread, and of course to who it can spread to. It definitely presents some tense moments, and builds a hallway full of doom and gloom. All it needed was a touch more blood to make it perfect. With that said, I give it 3 pools of blood, and glad I won’t be checking into any hotels anytime soon!

As the world searches for a cure to a disastrous virus, a scientist and park scout venture deep in the forest for a routine equipment run.

Starring: Joel Fry, Reece Shearsmith, and Hayley Squires

Directed and written by: Ben Wheatley

  “In The Earth” presents a world that has changed a lot. A doctor named Martin (Joel Fry) has travelled a long way into the forest and stopped at a lodge. This is only his first stop, as he’s looking for another site even further away. To find it, he gets help from a park scout named Alma (Ellora Torchia). They aren’t really expecting to find many people out there, but they do find some signs that someone was out there at some point. 

  Before they know it they find themselves in the company of Zach (Reece Shearsmith). It seems Zach has found himself all alone in the middle of nowhere, and now very close friends with the Earth. Martin and Alma try to be nice at first, but they grow convinced that something is wrong with him. He certainly has odd habits for a man alone in the woods. They’re about to find out he has some dangerous habits as well, and 

they’re about to learn more about the Earth than they bargained for.

  The virus that has taken over the world sets the stage for this movie. It puts the characters in the places they are, and why they think the way they do. At first it seems like the movie might be about figuring out the virus, but it then becomes a lot more about the characters’ interactions. It gets quite bizarre, as Zach as become completely wrapped up with his beliefs about the Earth. He has some strange things in store for the pair.

  Now if the audience gets lost in some of the nature, religion, and ritual talk, then they should focus on what they might have come for…the horror. There’s definitely some horrific scenes, and some that will make the audience cringe. Martin and Alma will suffer a lot in the woods. Some in the natural battle to escape, and some in the experiences they’re forced to go through. 

  There is no shortage of weird moments and strange talk “In the Earth.” The characters are in a different world, and looking for new answers. In the process, some seem to have lost their minds, or at least learned odd things. Reece does a fantastic job creating his own unusual character from beginning to end. There’s enough horror in the right spots to save the audience from beginning as confused as Martin and Alma. Also, there’s some great images created along the way in the dark forest. With that said, I give it 3 pools of blood!

The Banishing tells the story of the most haunted house in England. In the 1930s, a young reverend, his wife, and daughter move into a manor with a horrifying secret.

Starring: Jessica Brown Findlay, Sean Harris, and John Lynch

Directed by: Christopher Smith

Written by: David Beton, Ray Bogdanovich, and Dean Lines

  Most will hope they will receive “The Banishing” from this supposedly real haunted house. Linus (John Heffernan) has just made the move to a new home along with his wife Marianne (Jessica Brown Findlay) and daughter Adelaide (Anya McKenna-Bruce). The home is very nice, and maybe even too big for the three of them. While Linus is off preaching and trying to get people back to the church, his wife and daughter try to get settled in. 

  Adelaide finds some strange dolls and starts to talk with them. Marianne figures she’s just being a kid until she starts noticing some strange things about the house. Adelaide appears to be talking with someone besides the dolls, and Marianne is hearing voices as well. Voices soon turn to visions, family drama escalates, and later something much more sinister is dug up!

  The movie gets off to a great start with a guy who has apparently gone nuts, and repeatedly stabs his wife to death. The audience then gets to see the aftermath, including him hung by the bedside. The fun continues a little longer with the ugly dolls Adelaide begins to play with, and some visions from Marianne. When those things aren’t happening, the audience gets to see a rocky relationship between Linus and Marianne. He’s under great stress to make things work at church, and doesn’t need his wife telling him ghost stories.

  The audience also gets introduced to two more interesting characters, Malachi (John Lynch) and Harry (Sean Harris). There’s something creepy about both of them, and both are at odds with each other. Both know what has happened in Linus’ new home, with Harry trying to warn the family and Malachi wanting to keep Linus in his role. Their past and dealings with the church give pause to the mystery that’s happening in the house. As much as Malachi wishes Harry would stay out of it, Harry plays a part in helping Marianne’s ghost problem.

  “The Banishing” opens on a good note with a crazy murder suicide. It then dives into the supernatural, as Marianne and Adelaide each experience some weird happenings. When not exploring the house with the family, the audience is thrown into some church drama. Malachi and Harry take some of the attention away from the mystery, and have their own issues to work out. In the end, the film creates some creepy images with an interesting mystery to unfold. With that said, I give it 3 pools of blood!

Two astronauts are on a history-making mission in space, but when the promise of fame and glory collides with a major misunderstanding, it ensures they’ll go down in history for an entirely different reason. 

Written by: Paul Dini & Stephen Langford

Directed by: Joe Lynch

Cast: Ryan Kwanten, Breckin Meyer, Gabrielle Byndloss, Kara Kimmer


  Two astronauts are on a mission together all alone in space. One of the astronauts appears to be receiving all of the credit for the mission while the other is feeling the pressure to fill his dad’s astronauts boots. They seem to be hanging in there until they receive orders about a special opportunity for the astronaut getting credit for everything. The other one now has to deal with his feelings of losing out on a chance at history.

  After some really good horror filled episodes it’s good to see an episode with a little sci-fi action to it. It’s not the most advanced looking ship they’re on, but it does the trick. What’s interesting are the bright colors that are used with the ship, and everything that’s in the episode. As expected there’s a nice twist, or call it mistake, made that’s very costly. Oh and going back to the horror, there’s a good bloody moment squeezed in there.


Lola is convinced her brother is trying to kill her… but the more she pieces together, the less things make sense. Turns out, she’s looking for a monster in entirely the wrong place.  

Written by: Melanie Dale

Directed by: Rusty Cundieff

Cast: Maddie Nichols, Molly Ringwald, Andrew Brodeur, Ja'Ness Tate, Jerri Tubbs,


  Lola has a great story to tell the school’s guidance counselor. She’s convinced her brother is trying to kill her, but has a crazy exaggerated teenage style story to get her point across. Of course the counselor  doesn’t believe her, and sends her on her way. She’s still suspicious of her brother while at school, but will she be safe when she gets home?

  This one starts off with a lot of humor in Lola’s story, as the audience gets thrown into the story and back as she tells it. Maddie makes this character quite relatable to a younger audience. The story telling continues once she goes home to meet her brother, and the audience finds out what the deal is between these siblings. The horror in the episode will come out in the twist with a good showing of SFX. So far, Creepshow has done a lot of great things through three episodes helped by some terrific casting!

 Strange cravings and hallucinations befall a young couple after seeking shelter in the home of an aging farmer and her peculiar son.

Starring: Sawyer Spielberg, Malin Barr, and Barbara Kingley

Directed by: Devereux Milburn

Written by: Dan Kennedy and Devereux Milburn

  You’ll surely want a piece of sweet “Honeydew” instead of the meal that’s offered on this farm. Sam (Sawyer Spielberg) and Rylie (Malin Barr) might be a couple on a road trip together, but they seem to be on different paths. Rylie is focused on her studies while Sam is trying to prepare for his next acting role. With their minds on their work, their GPS stops working and they have to pull over with a flat tire. They can’t agree on how to get to their destination so they decide to camp for the night.

  While still being distantly together in the tent, a car pulls up with its high beams pointed at the tent. Rylie has an awkward exchange with a guy who tells them that this is his land and they need to leave. They pack up and start walking through the forest until they find a farm. An old lady, Karen (Barbara Kingsley), opens the door and insists on helping them out. Everything seems innocent at first, but that’s slowly going to change.

  This is probably going to be a movie that gets a lot of different opinions from audiences. It’s certainly strange starting with the relationship between this couple. The audience doesn’t know much about their history together, but does get to see they aren’t exactly on the same page. They don’t often agree with what to do, and they're clearly on different career paths. As soon as Karen retires for the night, they both do their own things almost making it even easier for what’s to come for them.

  Things are definitely odd about Karen and her farm. She seems way too nice, but also maybe nervous about something. Maybe it’s just her age or maybe it’s because of what she’s up to. The farm is dark, and not very roomy. Oh and then there’s Gunni (Jamie Bradley), who can’t talk, is bandaged up, and likes to stare at the tv. The couple is awful nice to just accept the reasoning for his condition, and never really question anything about him. Horror fans will know not to trust what’s coming, but the couple was doomed from the start.

  So what’s the deal with the Karen and the farm? No spoilers here, but lets just say she’s definitely crazy. There are a few clues dropped shortly after they enter the home. By the time this one is about over, it will probably have audiences cringing, and shaking their heads. On top of it all, there’s creepy music and voices that are played throughout that just adds to the horror of the situation.

  “Honeydew” is going to start off with some mystery that all plays out in the end. An ending for some that’s very tragic, and cringeworthy. Before getting to the end are a lot of strange happenings and people. Yes, everyone here is odd, even the couple that just can’t bond like they should. Karen is just way too nice, and the audience might become more worried about Gunni than anyone else. There’s some surprises to come on the farm with just a horrific ending. The pace is slow, the music will be unnerving, and the acting is solid all around. With that said, I give it 3.5 pools of blood.
