Friday May 13th 2022 is the only Friday the 13th we get this year, so a couple Jason movies had to be watched. It might be Saturday the 14th, but it's 2022 rules. Jason can own the weekend. There are no real rules. Past a certain point, the series gets ridiculous, so why not revisit Jason vs the Telekenetic girl in Friday the 13th Part 7: A New Blo…

Stick around for a list of the 15 best things streaming on Shudder. Contact the show AndrewWatchesFilm@gmail.com…
 
Andrew continues to fumble through his exploration of folk horror, going back to the roots of the subgenre. Today's feature is Vincent Price's Witchfinder Genearl. This one was streaming on Shudder recently, but is currently unavailable. Another of many films to put in the physical media arguemnt. This one should be streaming mainly because it's a …
 
Andrew continues to fumble through his exploration of folk horror, going back to the roots of the subgenre. Blood on Satan's Claw is currently streaming on Tubi, and is considered a foundational piece in both establishing folk horror in the 70's, and creating the start of what would someday become part of a full blown Satanic Panic. Join Andrew for…

Join Andrew for a Sunday Triple Feature of Lake Placid, Crawl, and the classic Alligator. Unfortunately, the only one currently streaming on a subscription service is Lake Placid on Hulu. That one is worth the Betty White performance alone. The others, you either need a physical copy or need to pony up for the rental fee. If you're up to it, the Sc…

Starring Andi Matichack (Halloween 18) and Emile Hirsch (Lords of Dogtown), the movie centers around a young child who develops a mysterious illness after he may have been visited by a Satanic cult. This one tests the sanity of the viewer. Join Andr…
 
Join Andrew for a rant about modern horror. Too much of the online discourse seems to be about how X sucked, Hereditary was over rated, Midsommar is terrible, the kid in The Babadook needs to die, and Jordan Peele doesn't deserve the budgets he gets. ENOUGH! Instead of engaging with the trolls online, join Andrew for a one sided rant about the stat…

Like a really good virus, I want to spread The Empty Man around. Since it was released in theaters during the pandemic when no theaters were open, not very many people saw the film. The Empty Man deserves an audience. While not perfect, it is ambitious and audations. Streaming on HBO. Give Empty Man a chance, you won't soon forget it.…
 
If you enjoy a good negative rant, I have an episode for you! I took a trip to an IMAX theater this weekend to suffer through the new Michael Bay movie, AmbuLAnce. I don't know what I was thinking with this completely reckless decision. Guess I just wanted to see a good, destructive movie set in LA. Since AmbuLAnce didn't satisfy that hunger, a ret…
 
Spoiler Free Episode After being held hostage by Los Angeles and New York for 2 weeks, Everything Everywhere All at Once is finally coming to a theater near you. Beloved director Mike Flanagan declared it one of the best films he'd ever seen, and its IMDB score has eclipsed the godfather, so the hype/anticipation for this film is extremely high. Jo…

I guess I've been out of the loop because until today, April 2nd, I had no idea Netflix was releasing a brand new Judd Apatow movie- The Bubble. Freaks and Geeks, The 40 Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up, FUNNY PEOPLE; Judd Apatow has released some all time classics. So many that I would argue the term Apatow Comedy should be a sub-genre all of its own. …

Join Andrew on a trip to Oslo, Norway via the local AMC. The Worst Person in the World finally made it to a local screen, and I was dying to see it. The movie didn't disappoint. Also, far too much time was spent talking about "The Slap Heard Round the World" today, and this show is no exception. My personal conspiracy theory that Will's slap shook …
 
Studio 666 is a movie that I had been meaning to see. I've heard good things, that it's a great movie to just enjoy and turn your brain off for. I didn't make it to see it in the theater, and regretted it when it left quickly. The regret deepened on Saturday morning when I woke to the news that Taylor Hawkins, the drummer for the Foo Fighters had d…
 
This episode may or may not sound good, you be the judge. Join Andrew as he takes a walk on the beach to reflect upon a torturous screening of A Nightmare on Elm Street: The Remake. Watching that movie again was a bad decision. Had to be followed up with another watch of the vastly superior Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge. Would appreci…

Email the show at AndrewWatchesFilm@gmail.com…
 
Is there any possibility that the new movie Deep Water starring Ben Affleck and Anna De Armas is good? Probably not. Can it be fun? With the right mindset, the new Erotic Thriller from Adrian Lyne is a hilariously great time with a bad movie. Join Andrew as he examines the sexual games this couple plays, possibly turning deadly. Contact Andrew- And…
