Marriage Story

Marriage Story
Director: Noah Baumbach
Writer: Noah Baumbach
Cast: Scarlett Johansson, Adam Driver, Laura Dern, Alan Alda, Ray Liotta, Azhy Robertson, Julie Hagerty, Merritt Wever
Distributor: Netflix
Rated R| Minutes: 136
Release Date: November 8, 2019 (Limited Theaters)| December 6, 2019 (Netflix)

Writer and director Noah Baumbach‘s Marriage Story is an emotionally crushing, yet very compassionate depiction of a collapsing marriage between two people and the irony of the realization that they must come together in order for them to go their separate ways. It also may be one of Baumbach’s greatest pieces of work.

Films about divorce rarely explore the heartbreak of two people who could not make it work with such honesty. But with Marriage Story, it feels raw and unnerving. The film moves like a stage play with its characters (played brilliantly by Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver) pouring out their souls for all of us to see as they go through one of the most difficult points in their lives.

Streaming Review: Creepshow Episode 6 – Skincrawlers/By the Silver Water of Lake Champlain

Happy Halloween, everyone! Once trick or treating is over, lay back on the couch with a huge bag of candy and watch the Season 1 finale of Creepshow on Shudder. The hit series from executive producer Greg Nicotero was just renewed for a second season and ends its first season 6-episode run on AMC’s horror and supernatural streaming service. The finale ends an already strong season with a double banger of monster goodness, with “Skincrawlers” and “By the Silver Water of Lake Champlain.” The latter was directed by make-up effects guru Tom Savini, who helped Nicotero break into the horror business years ago and who worked on the original 1982 film from George A. Romero and Stephen King.

Shudder
Air date: October 24, 2019

Shudder’s reimagining of George A. Romero’s and Stephen King’s Creepshow has been a monster hit, breaking streaming records for AMC’s genre service since its premiere in late September. Last week’s Creepshow episode was my favorite of the season thus far and this week we get the penultimate episode of the debut season with a “The Night of the Paw” and “Times is Tough in Musky Holler.” Created by Greg Nicotero of The Walking Dead, Creepshow features phenomenal practical effects, an assortment of genre legends sprinkled throughout the cast, and the darkly comedic fable-like storytelling that Creepshow made popular in the original 1982 film.

Shudder’s new take on George A. Romero and Stephen King’s comic-inspired anthology, Creepshow, revs into its third episode tonight. Executive produced by Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead) and featuring writing and directing from some of the most impressive names in horror, Creepshow is one of the many reasons a horror enthusiast should not be living without Shudder, especially this time of the year. Introduced by The Creeper and featuring the always cool looking Creepshow comic artwork, the stories in Episode 1.3 deliver a twisted tale of trick or treating along with a moral fable of the power of greed.

New York Comic-Con (NYCC) returned to the Jacob Javits Convention Center in midtown Manhattan on Thursday and provided a perfect venue for a screening of the second episode of Shudder’s new Creepshow series.

The new streaming series premiered on Shudder last Thursday and features six episodes with two horror stories in each, ending appropriately enough, on Halloween.

Shudder
Air date: September 26, 2019

One of the most anticipated events for horror fans this year, the reimagining of Creepshow debuted last night on Shudder. As a lifelong fan of horror anthologies from the original Creepshow films (1982 and 1987) to Tales from the Crypt and Trick ‘r Treat, this original series had me super excited, and I’m happy to say it did not disappoint.

Coming full circle on his amazing career, Greg Nicotero acts as executive producer of the streaming series and directed the first story of the pilot episode. Each of the eight episodes consists of two horror shorts. This Creepshow pays homage to the original while adding some new flair for an overall fun and creepy horror experience. We even get an updated Creeper in the wraparound finding Creepshow comics in a familiar crate.

Tigers Are Not Afraid image

Few word pairings have gained the increase in stature in the horror community over the past few years as “Shudder Exclusive.” AMC’s horror streaming service has quickly become the go-to destination for genre fans, acquiring original films and foreign films at a rapid pace. Last year, several Shudder exclusives made my year-end Top Horror films, including Mandy, Revenge, Terrified, Satan’s Slaves, and The Witch in the Window. After recently acquiring the rights to Japanese zom-com One Cut of the Dead, the network just acquired all the rights to Mexican horror film, Tigers Are Not Afraid by writer/director Issa Lopez.

Japanese Zombie Comedy One Cut Of The Dead

AMC’s horror streaming service Shudder has been killing it as of late. They made news last year when their Last Drive-In movie marathon with Joe Bob Briggs broke the internet, and led to Joe Bob’s full return as host of the now-weekly Last Drive-In series every Friday. They also have been bringing in tons of Shudder exclusives and originals, including the Nicolas Cage revenge film Mandy, which debuted on the service last year.

Now, Shudder continues to be a step ahead in the horror streaming game, acquiring the international rights to acclaimed Japanese zom-com One Cut of the Dead, from director Shinichiro Ueda.
