Host (2020)

“Six friends hire a medium to hold a seance via Zoom during lockdown – but they get far more than they bargained for as things quickly go wrong. When an evil spirit starts invading their homes, they begin to realize they might not survive the night.”

It was just a matter of time that we would see our current circumstances show up on the screen, especially in horror and I ain’t mad at this. I don’t want a million movies or TV shows with Zoom but done right, it can be effective as it was here. Basically Panarmoral Activity via Zoom that introduces everyone quickly and gets to the point. With a run time of 60 minutes, it kind of had to and I’m here to say I want more 60 minute movies. At least for ones released straight to a streaming service. Not everything has to 90 minutes or longer and this only works because of the short run time. It’s not great by any measure but it’s serviceable for a quick scare if you are looking for one. (3/5)

In Search of Darkness (2019)

“An exploration of ’80s horror movies through the perspective of the actors, directors, producers, and SFX craftspeople who made them, and their impact on contemporary cinema.”

I really enjoyed this and it was a fun trip down 80s horror memory lane. I liked the format of how they went year by year talking about several films that year and certain trends that would pop up. It was also great to see a lot of the horror icons come on screen and talk about their movies and other horror movies they loved as well. After four and z half hours, my only issue is that there wasn’t anything new discussed or a deeper dive into something that hasn’t been talked about numerous times. Granted I’m a big horror nut who has watched a lot these type of docs and other things, so I see this being really great for new or casual fans. Don’t get me wrong, if you are hardcore horror like me, it is still a fun doc with some great music too.
