Ma Trailer Header

We’ve seen Octavia Spencer in some pretty inspiring and Oscar-winning roles. But never quite something like Ma, which Universal Pictures has released an official trailer for.

In the film Spencer plays as a quiet loner who helps some teenagers buy booze and sees the opportunity to make some new friends by taking them to her basement. Though they suspect something, it turns out she isn’t all that bad. That is until she becomes more aggressive as her popularity starts to rise. And when one of the kids breaks the ground rules of never going upstairs, things in this once small quiet town become really scary. Check out the trailer for Ma below.

Universal Kills Off Connected Dark Universe, Shifts Focus To Individual Monster Projects

Universal Classic Monsters

When it was first announced, a shared universe for rebooted takes on Universal’s classic monsters sounded like it could be fun if all went well. Things did not go well.

The shared universe, which was dubbed the Dark Universe, opened with 2017’s The Mummy starring Tom Cruise. Instead of focusing on the horror, the focus was more on making a CGI-heavy action blockbuster. The movie cost $125 million to produce, and made only $80 million at the domestic box office. A nearly $330 million showing in foreign markets helped to recoup some of those costs, but the Dark Universe was in serious jeopardy of dropping dead a few steps from the starting line.

Now comes word that Universal has indeed killed off the Dark Universe, and will instead shift their focus to rebooting their monsters as individual projects with no ties to a connected universe and, best of all, rooted in horror with no restrictions on the budget, the rating, or the tone.

The studio will also be working with its film production partner Blumhouse for two all new scared-filled mazes based on Unfriended and Truth or Dare. More on the story below.

Movie Review: The First Purge

The First Purge

The First Purge
Director: Gerard McMurray
Writers: James DeMonaco
Cast: Y’Lan Noel, Lex Scott Davis, Joivan Wade, Luna Lauren Velez, Marisa Tomei
Studio: Universal Pictures
Rated R | 97 Minutes
Release Date: July 4, 2018

It’s funny how current events can influence a film. Okay, maybe not now. Especially not now considering what is happening to this world. But somehow The Purge film franchise has been able to sustain itself by using socioeconomics as a narrative device. For three films we have seen the dangers of what could happen if, for one night, all crime, including murder, was legal. It’s the kind of satirization that is so shocking it’s on the verge of becoming real. Each film took a different perspective of the privileged and disenfranchised trying to survive a night where no one would be punished for their crimes. Although it was fictional, it was hard to ignore some of the parallels the film had with today’s society. Some might say the film wasn’t too far off foreseeing what will happen.

But now we live in a different time, and The First Purge takes a look at the beginning and how it all started. The funny thing is, this new installment draws so much inspiration from the previous 18 months that it is simultaneously scary and funny, all the while continuing to being one of the most inclusive films to date by giving minorities and people of color some of the most exciting action sequences. Check out my full review of The First Purge here below.

Meddling Kids by Edgar Cantero banner

Meddling Kids: A Novel
Hardcover | Paperback | Kindle | Audiobook
By Edgar Cantero
Publisher: Anchor Books | Blumhouse Books
Paperback Release date: May 29, 2018

Every summer, four young friends and their dog would return to their vacation spot in Blyton Hills, a small mining town in Oregon, to reconvene the “Blyton Summer Detective Club,” where they would have fun together while investigating unsolved local crimes. But in the summer of 1977, the teen detectives tackled their biggest and final mystery — the case of the Sleepy Lake Monster, and the consequences of their discovery left them traumatized. In Meddling Kids, author Edgar Cantero channels Scooby-Doo mysteries for a Lovecraftian tale that sees the gang reuniting 13 years later to venture back to Blyton Hills to figure out what really happened that day they unmasked the “monster.”
