Film Review: Dracula Untold (2014)

Universal begins its attempt to wrangle its stable of “monsters” into a shared property, a share franchise, much like The Avengers, with the release of Dracula Untold. The grue-crew have been dreading this film for sometime, even jokingly labeling the film Dracula Unseen. Aside from Dave, who may have been literally offended by the film, the reviews are surprising positive but with reservations. Horror? No, not at all. Action film? Yeah, Doc and Thomas even suggest it is closer to a superhero film. Twists and turns, baby.

Episode 78 – The Sacrament (2013) – Mutantis (2014)
Subscribe – iTunes – Facebook – Stitcher

The Sacrament (2013) 
Ti West is a controversial film maker around the HNR offices. His entries in the anthology films The ABC’s of Death and VHS are responsible for some of the rockiest reviews on the show. While his past films get some love, House of the Devil and The InnkeepersThe Sacrament does not earn many accolades. Even Vixen is hardened by the blatant similarities to Jonestown and the films based on that real life tragedy. Even though Gene Jones does a great job as The Father, the leader of the cult, the story itself never brings anything original to the film. Bah, humbug.

What Have You Been Watching: Mutantis
Doc Rotten and The Black Saint are here to share an experience that defies explanation, the film called Mutantis from Dire Wit Films. Low budget effects, sophomoric humor and a keen sense of self awareness, Mutantis is unlike any film you have ever seen.
