10 Facts You Didn’t Know about the Movie “Fire in the Sky”

In 1975 it’s been said that logger Travis Walton and his co-workers experienced an alien phenomenon that left Walters missing for a period of time after he was struck by a light that seemed to blaze from the sky. Fire in the Sky is an accounting of what Walters went through during that time and the tumult this caused with his co-workers. Of course those in town though they were cracked, UFO sightings and the like are usually debunked on a regular basis.

13 Nights of Reelz Scary Preps Your TV for Halloween!

This post is sponsored by Reelz; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

Come October, a few different television networks decide to feel our vibe of watching horror films on a frequent basis by programming marathons of horror films. One of which is the 13 Nights of Reelz Scary Programming, which kicked off on October 20, 2015 and will continue until Halloween. What I dig about this particular block of scares is that they not only have the films to show like Silence of the Lambs and Psycho (1998) but they have unique programs that go a little deeper into the stories that influenced some iconic horror films and even real life serial killers.

Now, I know that there are only 3 days left of programming at the time of this posting but if you check out their schedule here. You’ll see that you can check out Witches Among Us which dives

50 forgotten sci-fi films from the 1990s

We may remember Independence Day, The Matrix, The Phantom Menace. But what about these forgotten 90s sci-fi films? And are any worth seeing?

Think back to the science fiction cinema of the 1990s, and some of the decade's biggest box-office hits will immediately spring to mind: The Phantom Menace, Jurassic Park, Independence Day, Men In Black, Armageddon and Terminator 2 were all in the top 20 most lucrative films of the era.

But what about the sci-fi films of the 1990s that failed to make even close to the same cultural and financial impact of those big hitters? These are the films this list is devoted to - the flops, the straight-to-video releases, the low-budget and critically-derided. We've picked 50 live-action films that fit these criteria, and dug them up to see whether they're still worth watching in the 21st century.

‘Extraterrestrial’ Review

Stars: Brittany Allen, Freddie Stroma, Melanie Papalia, Jesse Moss, Anja Savcic, Sean Rogerson, Emily Perkins, Mike Kovac, Fred Keating, Gil Bellows, Michael Ironside | Written and Directed by The Vicious Brothers

The Vicious Brothers, writer/directors of the two popular Grave Encounters found-footage flicks, turn their hands to a more traditional narrative movie, mixing traditional filming methods with their penchant for Pov shaky-cam, with Extraterrestrial.

Still reeling from her parents divorce, April (Brittany Allen) is dragged back to the vacation cabin she spent fond summers at as a child accompanied by a group of friends. Her trip down memory lane takes a dramatic and terrifying turn when a fireball descends from the sky and explodes in the nearby woods. Lead by her boyfriend (Freddie Stroma), the group venture out toward the crash site and discover the remnants of a ship from another planet along with footprints that suggest its alien occupants are still alive.

Extraterrestrial movie review: no intelligent life on Earth

Utterly empty. It’s aware of the tropes of the new mythos of alien abductions, but makes no attempt to find anything even the slightest bit fresh in them. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): so tired of traditional horror movies

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

It’s literally a Cabin in the Woods scenario in which the hapless 20somethings invoke — among all the many scary options for their own mass slaughter they didn’t realize they had — an alien abduction, and without Bradley Whitford and Richard Jenkins having made bets on it. When I said that Cabin “render[ed] all past and future examples of the genre superfluous,” this is precisely the sort of movie I was imagining could no longer be made in its wake… and frankly I’m astonished that anyone had the gumption to do so.

The Madness: Automatons Week #1

So there’s this horror movie competition that takes place on Facebook every October, and this is my first year participating. I’m still a little lost, so bear with me. I have watched more than this, but these are the movies I watched during the week of Oct 4th – October 11th, the first official week of The Madness. I hope I can squeeze some more in this week, but having a 4 year old makes that tough to do. I think I had a pretty good week considering all obstacles. Plus, I saw some great stuff this week. Some revisits that I try to do annually, as well as some new movies, not released to theaters yet.

Late Phases (2014) – 2 pts

Director: Adrián García Bogliano

Easily misunderstood, but still solid. We don’t get much in the way of werewolf horror, so it’s good to support it when we do.
