Review: Final Girl (2015) 

Dave Dreher says it best during the podcast review, “Somewhere in this mess is a great story.” Final Girl featuring Abigail Breslin, Wes Bentley, Alexander Ludwig and Logan Huffman attempts to build something uniquely interesting, but – to quote Dave once again – “fails miserably.” The Grue-Crew hack and slash away at the film questioning the dialog, the lighting, the logic and – with all due apologies – Wes Bentley. Check out the review, we will give you a five minute head start.

What Have You Been Watching: Cub (2015)

Originally titled Welp, the Norwegian film dubbed Cub in the States follows the story of young Sam, a troubled cub scout on a camping trip with his troupe. Once at the camp ground, Sam discovers the legend of Kai may very well be true when he encounters a feral young boy hiding – and killing – in the woods. The Grue-Crew recommend the film for its imagination, ballsy attitude, creative traps and its young star, Maurice Luijten.

Review: Harbinger Down (2015) 

HARBINGER DOWN represents a love for bringing practical effects to the big screen, a hands-on physical thing leaving CGI far behind. Effects artists Tom Woodruff Jr. and Alex Gillis, from StudioADI – Academy Award winners for Death Becomes Her and famous for their work on Starship Troopers and Alien films – craft a horror tale where an alien infects a ship trapped in icy waters. The film wears its influences out in the open from Alien to The Thing to The Blob and more. The cringe as they find the effects noteworthy but the script, direction and even the acting – aside from Lance Henriksen – lacking.

What Have You Been Watching: Cop Car (2015)

Thomas steps up to discuss the thriller Cop Car from the future Spider-Man director Jon Watts. The film pits a corrupt lawman, Kevin Bacon, against a pair of rebellious kids who take off with Bacon’s police car. Thomas recommends the film, not only as a primer for the director and his next high-profile project, but as a competent and exciting film all on its own. And, everything is better with a little Bacon in it, right!
