Spring is a great time to spring forward on our goals. Warmer weather means we can be outside more, means we can open windows and air out all of the stale winter air, and it means we start thinking about summer and summer clothes and whether last year's will fit. (maybe that last one is just me?) <BR> <BR> So I thought it was time for a spring challenge. If you are intere... Sat, 20 Mar 2021 12:01:37 EST weekend feature 3/20-3/21 It's the first weekend of spring, so my allergies are great fun right now. I didn't see any pollen based horror movies, but pollen comes from plants, so here's a great list of plant based horror movies. I've only seen a few of them, but I thought it was pretty interesting. <BR> <BR> <link><BR>/news-bfi/lists/10-great-killer-plant-<BR>films </link> <BR> <BR> Which ones have you seen?

By the end of the week though it sounds like we'll be reminded that it is technically still winter for a few more weeks. I thought a few more winter horror movies would be a reminder of that too. <BR> <BR> Misery "Kathy Bates won an Best Actress Oscar for her chilling performance as Annie Wilkes, an obsessed fan who rescues, then kidnaps, then hobbles her favorite writer, Paul Shel...

IMBD <BR> This looks like it could be really good. It has an amazing cast (how can you go wrong with Bill Murray?

Mon, 4 Jan 2021 12:04:55 EST Weekend feature 12/26-12/27 Upcoming horror movies. After months of theatre closures and pushed back movie releases, I think we're all hoping that in 2021 we can see some new movies in the theatres again. Releasing them on streaming platforms is just not the same, and there is no way I can justify spending $20 to see a movie on my own tv, no matter how comfortable my couch is. <BR> <BR> Here's a list of horror movies scheduled to be released in 2021.

I actually did find a list (from the 2016 elections it sounds like), but I've only seen one of the movies on it and I feel like it's a stretch to call Stephen King's "the Mist" a political movie.

I haven't seen it, and it sounds like it kind of follows a pretty common script. That doesn't mean it's a bad movie though. Has anyone seen it?

I liked the one with Kevin Bacon in it. The book was profound and unsettling. This new version sounds like it could be pretty good. <BR> <BR> "When Cecilia's abusive ex takes his own life and leaves her fortune, she suspects his death was a hoax.
