47 Meters Down
Blu-ray | DVD | Digital
Directed by Johannes Roberts
Written by Johannes Roberts, Ernest Riera
Starring Mandy Moore, Claire Holt, Matthew Modine, Chris Johnson, Yani Gellman, Santiago Segura
Lionsgate
PG-13 | 89 minutes
Release date: September 26, 2017

47 Meters Down is a shark movie starring Mandy Moore (This is Us) and Claire Holt (The Originals) as sisters on vacation in Mexico, who decide to go cage diving with Great Whites. That turns out to be a bad decision as their cage plummets to the titular depth, and soon the women are fighting for survival from both the sharks above and the impending loss of oxygen. I’ll be honest, this movie had me at “shark.” I am an unabashed shark movie enthusiast. Spielberg’s JAWS is one of my favorite films ever, and I started writing for Geeks of Doom by covering the Sharknado franchise. So suffice to say, if you put sharks in a movie, I’ll be there to watch it. Unfortunately, sharks are about the only thing 47 Meters Down has going for it.

Spoilers for Scream

MTV’s Scream has splattered the network with blood and gore each of the last two summers. Fitting with the season, they released a special 2-hour Halloween Special for Season 3. Poor Emma (Willa Fitzgerald) has had to deal with a lot these past two seasons. Season 1’s killer, Piper Shaw (Amelia Rose Blaire), turned out to be her half sister. And when she was killed off, we found she had an unknown accomplice. Turns out Kieran (Amadeus Serafini) was said accomplice, and he was Emma’s boyfriend. Considering her first boyfriend on the show was brutally hacked up season 1, Emma is NOT doing too well in the love department.

And so it comes to this. MTV’s Scream fell deep into a sophomore slump early on, but has been fighting its way with a series of good episodes heading down the stretch. Emma (Willa Fitzgerald) and Audrey (Bex Taylor-Klaus) killed the murderer, Piper Shaw (Amelia Rose Blaire) at the end of season 1, but someone has been continuing her bloody legacy. Legacy is the opportune word in Lakewood, a town known for its bloody legend, Brandon James. Piper, it turned out was Brandon’s daughter, Emma’s half sister. Could Brandon be seeking revenge for his daughter’s death? Sheriff Acosta (Anthony Ruivivar) thought so. But when he sent officers to the James family farm, they found the Mayor dead, and Emma and Audrey standing over the body, blood on their hands. Is the killer framing them as part of his games? Will the rest of the Lakewood 6 survive?

Spoilers for the season finale of Scream below.

Season 2 Episode 11 “Heavenly Creatures”

It’s time for the penultimate episode of Scream‘s second season. Last week on MTV’s Scream Zoe (Kiana Lede) met a watery end, drowned in the same lake where Piper Shaw (Amelia Rose Blaire) was killed at the end of last season. Piper was season one’s killer, the daughter of Lakewood’s infamous Brandon James and his childhood crush Maggie, who happens to be Emma’s mom. Suddenly Piper’s corpse has turned up, and Maggie (Tracy Middendorf) and Sheriff Acosta (Anthony Ruivivar) believe that Brandon James may in fact be back to get revenge for his daughter’s murder. Makes sense as the two main targets of the killer this year have been Emma (Willa Fitzgerald) and Audrey (Bex Taylor-Klaus), the two that killed Piper. Of course there are a litany of other suspects, including the sheriff’s son Stavo (Santiago Segura), who has a dark past and loves drawing the Lakewood 6 being murdered. There’s also Eli (Sean Grandillo) who was last seen stalking Emma’s backyard late at night…

Scream
Season 2 Episode 10 “The Vanishing”
Directed by Kevin Kolsch & Dennis Widmyer
Written by Eoghan O’Donnell
Created by Jill E. Blotevogel, Jay Beattie, Dan Dworkin
Starring Willa Fitzgerald, Bex Taylor-Klaus, John Karna, Amadeus Serafini, Carlson Young, Tracy Middendorf, Kiana Lede, Austin Highsmith, Billy Campo, Sean Grandillo, Santiago Segura, Anthony Ruivivar

Air date: Tuesday, August 2nd, 2016, 10pm

MTV’s Scream season 2 is limping towards the finish line. Of the Lakewood 6, only Jake (Tom Maden) was killed through the first 9 episodes, and he died in the premiere. Only a handful of minor characters have been killed off after that, and I am actually clueless to what is going on. It took until episode 9 to get some backstory that Ms. Lang (Austin Highsmith) was orphan buddies with Piper Shaw (Amelia Rose Blaire), season 1’s killer, and the half sister of heroine Emma (Willa Fitzgerald). Emma and Audrey (Bex Taylor-Klaus) found this out when a party at the old orphanage left Piper’s corpse set up for them, and a fresh body was hanging from the rafters. Noah (John Karna) and Zoe (Kiana Lede) sealed the deal, which may seal their deal if you know what I mean, while Brooke (Carson Young) is getting closer to troubled suspect Gustavo (Santiago Segura). That should have us caught up…

Spoilers below for this week’s Scream.
