The best places to find horror movies are on streaming sites. Most of the horror that ends up in theatres are money grabs that rely totally on jump scares and cheap parlor tricks… I’m talking movies like Ouija, Annabelle, and the dreadful looking, upcoming Sinister 2. But horror fans can rely on sites like Netflix to update regularly, and breathe some fresh air into otherwise stale genres. After nearly twenty minutes of “spin the queue” last night, I settled on Would You Rather. The film’s cast struck me right away as it’s two featured stars were Brittany Snow (great in Hairspray and the Pitch Perfect films) and Dr. Herbert West himself, horror veteran Jeffrey Combs. The plot seemed utterly simple: 8 people under desperate financial stress are invited to a dinner party hosted by an eccentric millionaire. Together, they’ll play a game, and the winner will be taken care of. What could possibly go wrong?
The Trailer Park Boys are a Canadian comedy troupe that has amassed a rabid fan following over the years. The comedy troupe has already spawned a hit series and one movie released on DVD in America. Now their second film, Countdown to Liquor Day, has also found its way to the States.
The Trailer Park Boys are Ricky, Julian, and Bubbles. When the film begins, they are being released from jail after serving two-year sentences. However, when they return to their beloved Sunnyvale Trailer Park, the whole place is deserted. Most of Sunnyvale’s tenants have moved to a new trailer park run by their archenemy Jim Lahey and his boyfriend Randy. Lahey wants to run a sewer line through Julian’s property, so he keeps trying to bribe him into selling the land. Julian refuses because he has used his land to open his new business, the ironically named Success Auto Body Shop. Eventually, Julian creates a crazy, illegal scheme to save their home and the hijinks begin.
