BY: 7 OCTOBERZ

maxresdefault-1-1-1040x585

Movie: Peninsula

Main Cast: Gang Dong-won, Lee Jung-hyun and Lee Re

Release Date: Aug. 7, 2020

IMDB synopsis: “A zombie virus has the last 4 years spread to all South Korea. 4 Koreans in HK sail thru the blockade to Incheon for USD20,000,000 on a truck..”

Hello Hip Hop Heads and Horror Fans,

Today I will be reviewing the movie, “Peninsula”, it is a South Korean horror action movie! It is a standalone sequel to Train to Busan, for those that watched that film knows it was a dope emotional rollercoaster zombie flick! This sequel didn’t let its predecessor down, we are taken into the world of a Marine Jung-Seok who is taking his sister, nephew, brother in law to a ship to take them away from the zombie outbreak. It is a bit of a spoiler, but zombie outbreak reaches the ship and his nephew is bitten, his sister doesn’t want to leave her son and gets bitten by him. Fast forward Jung is in Hong Kong depressed and turned to a world of crime.

Jung is hired with a group of others to go Incheon in the quarantined peninsula to go get an abandoned food truck which contains bags of cash totaling US$20 million. This city is run down with zombies, a modern Raccoon City! Only people left are survivors of the outbreak and rogue militia that ended stranded there. They kidnap a few of Jung’s group members and take them to this compound where they created a morbid game of hostages to battle zombies in an arena and see who survives! I won’t give up to much away, go peep it! Very dope film and deep as well!

Thank you for reading my movie review. Hope you all enjoyed it! Until next time horror fiends and hip hop heads! While you’re at it follow my blog on social media @7octoberz on Instagram and Facebook! Also follow me on YouTube and IGtv to watch my podcast Nightmare on Sedgwick Avenue.

NIGHTMARE ON SEDGWICK AVENUE – “DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO SURVIVE?!!! – #ALIVE MOVIE REVIEW”

BY: 7 OCTOBERZ

alive-netflix

Movie: #Alive

Main Cast: Yoo Ah-in and Park Shin-hye

Release Date: Sept. 8, 2020 (Netflix)

IMDB synopsis: “The rapid spread of an unknown infection has left an entire city in ungovernable chaos, but one survivor remains alive in isolation. It is his story.”

Hello Hip Hop Heads and Horror Fans,

Today I will be reviewing the movie, “#Alive”, it is a dope Korean zombie horror flick!!! I didn’t go in with any expectations when I put on this film. The short trailer on Netflix instantly grabbed by attention. I am a fan of foreign horror specially Asian, in this case Korean. I believe they have mastered the art of horror and telling a story that is truly scary! I was not let down with this film! From beginning to end it has you at the edge of your seat. I love that they used technology and how it can help you survive a zombie apocalypse. We are introduced to the man character, Oh Joon-woo, who is a homebody video gamer. You can tell he is addicted to technology.

The action starts right away, we see a “pandemic” spreading that begins turning people into zombies. He is stuck in his apartment complex and forced to survive. He uses a drone and cell to try to see what is going on! He comes to the harsh reality that he might be a lone survivor and his family is dead! It is very deep to, talks about depression in this type of new reality! Then there is a light of the tunnel when he finds another survivor Kim Yoo-bin across the way from his complex! I won’t spoil the movie, go watch it definitely worth it!

NIGHTMARE ON SEDGWICK AVENUE – “DEAD DOESN’T MEAN GONE!!! – THE HAUNTING OF BLY MANOR MOVIE REVIEW” (SPOILERS)

BY: 7 OCTOBERZ

AAAABcYCLkKx5d5Nppaotvy41z_reYjsspiNCGmdQLhKX1P_F706rKxW-7P7SbkHMJZAFy_XOfMbWVnxcRm_y00yGk1xnXcSHcfVRc67xSor5lpOvl9ABugfriIbpsULyQ

Movie: The Haunting of Bly Manor

Main Cast:  Victoria Pedretti, Amelie Bea Smith, Benjamin Evan Ainsworth, Henry Thomas and more!

Release Date: October 9, 2020

IMDB synopsis: “After an au pair’s tragic death, Henry hires a young American nanny to care for his orphaned niece and nephew who reside at Bly Manor with the chef Owen, groundskeeper Jamie and housekeeper, Mrs. Grose.”

Hello Hip Hop Heads and Horror Fans,

Today I will be reviewing the horror anthology show, “The Haunting of Bly Manor”, Mike Flanagan has created a horror masterpiece! First “The Haunting of Hill House”, which hands down is my favorite horror show of 2018!!! I love how they use ghosts as a metaphor for demons/people that haunt us! This anthology is a beautiful 80’s gothic love story, more than it is a ghost story! This show made me laugh, cry and creeped me out! The main premise follows Dani who seems to be running from her past and moves to London, the story takes place in 1987! Dani applies for a live-in nanny job at Bly Manor. Bly Manor has a dark history and ghosts that roam the house, sort of like the Murder House in American Horror Story. Dani goes to the manor to take care of two kids (Flora and Miles) who recently lost their parents. Dani keeps seeing this figure in mirrors that has headlights for eyes! They used that same imagery for last season, not sure if they are paying homage to Stephen King’s “headlights” mentioned in his book “It”.

I love how this anthology series, develops the characters by each episode being dedicated to each character so you get to know them, their motives and get attached to your favorite ones. Dani’s backstory is tragic, it takes you back to her past and what is haunting her! Turns out she has a fiancé, who was her childhood best friend. She realizes she is marrying him without actually loving him beyond the friendship. She realizes she is attracted to women, she breaks up with him. He gets upset with her before she can explain why and as he gets out the car he is hit by a truck. We then see why Dani was running away, she felt guilt. Dani ends up meeting Jamie at Bly Manor, the gardener of the property. They find true love and Jamie is patient with Dani, accepting her for who she is and the fact that she still sees her ex-fiancé.

The story is deeper than what I mentioned. It touches on grief, death, guilt, ghosts, battling personal demons and more! I do not want to give too much away. To long to write everything that I loved from this series. Definitely recommend watching this! Be ready to be creeped out, laugh and cry! I love the depth of this horror show. It shows that horror is not only meant to scare, but also tell real stories we can relate to!

Thank you for reading my movie review. Hope you all enjoyed it! Until next time horror fiends and hip hop heads! While you’re at it follow my blog on social media @7octoberz on Instagram and Facebook! Also follow me on YouTube and IGtv to watch my podcast Nightmare on Sedgwick Avenue.

NIGHTMARE ON SEDGWICK AVENUE – “THE KILLER IN DISGUISE!!! – THE WOLF OF SNOW HOLLOW MOVIE REVIEW” (SPOILERS)

BY: 7 OCTOBERZ

wolf-of-snow-hollow-banner-2-scaled

Movie: The Wolf of Snow Hollow

Main Cast: Jim Cummings, Riki Lindhome, Chloe East, Jimmy Tatro AND Robert Forster

Release Date: October 9, 2020

IMDB synopsis: “Terror grips a small mountain town as bodies are discovered after each full moon. Losing sleep, raising a teenage daughter, and caring for his ailing father, officer Marshall struggles to remind himself there’s no such thing as werewolves.”

Hello Hip Hop Heads and Horror Fans,

Today I will be reviewing the movie, “The Wolf of Snow Hollow”, it is a werewolf horror comedy. Jim Cummings is the director, writer and star of this movie! Jim plays small-town Sheriff John who has anger issues and very sarcastic! His character reminded me of a mix of a young Jim Carrey with Bruce Campbell! At times a bit over the top, but made his character interesting. The main premise of the film starts where a couple is vacationing in the town and the first night the couple is terrorized what seems to be a werewolf. The girl isn’t so lucky and is murdered horrifically. That is the first victim as the “wolf” goes on a killing spree. The town criticizes the Sheriff’s department for being unable to catch the killer and keep the town safe.

We catch a glimpse of the werewolf a few times when he attacks his victims. At first I was like who could the werewolf be?! Even the Sheriff’s daughter was close to being the next victim. The murders end up being pinned on some guy who is found dead in his trailer with a werewolf tattoo with a rap sheet. The Sheriff goes around town returning belongings to people and comes across Paul who owns a taxidermy. The Sheriff realizes he is speaking to the real killer aka “werewolf”!!! This is a huge spoiler so don’t read until you have watched the movie! There is a plot twist at the end which I did not expect. It turns out, it is not a werewolf, but the killer is in a werewolf costume!!! Very dope unique concept, definitely recommend it! It is on the top of my list for best horror flicks of 2020!

Thank you for reading my movie review. Hope you all enjoyed it! Until next time horror fiends and hip hop heads! While you’re at it follow my blog on social media @7octoberz on Instagram and Facebook! Also follow me on YouTube and IGtv to watch my podcast Nightmare on Sedgwick Avenue.

BY: 7 OCTOBERZ

3744452-untitled-1

Movie: Hubie Halloween

Main Cast: Adam Sandler, Julie Bowen, Kevin James, Maya Rudolph and more!

Release Date: Oct 7, 2020 (Netflix)

IMDB synopsis: “Despite his devotion to his hometown of Salem (and its Halloween celebration), Hubie Dubois is a figure of mockery for kids and adults alike. But this year, something is going bump in the night, and it’s up to Hubie to save Halloween.”

Hello Hip Hop Heads and Horror Fans,

Today I will be reviewing Adam Sandler horror comedy, “Hubie Halloween”. I’ve been anticipating this movie since I saw the trailer. I watched it the day it dropped and found it hilarious. As we know Sandler’s films he has many dope cameos from Rob Schneider, Shaq, Maya Rudolph, Kenan Thompson and more! The premise of the movie is Hubie (Sadler) is a local who is an outcast and gets picked on by his town for being a scaredy cat. He loves his town and keeps it safe for Halloween! It is a very feel good flick, with funny moments. It touches on the fact that it is okay to be different and remain positive when faced with adversity, in this case bullying! Definitely a dope film go check it out, you can watch it with your fam or friends!

NIGHTMARE ON SEDGWICK AVENUE – “PAST SINS WILL HAUNT YOU!!! – MURDER IN THE WOODS MOVIE REVIEW” (SPOILERS)

BY: GABY MORENO

mitw-banner-all-laurels-16x9-youtube5688094593461959664.jpg

Movie: Murder in the Woods

Main Cast: Danny Trejo, Chelsea Rendon, Jose Julian, Catherine Toribio and more!

Release Date: August 14, 2020 (VOD)

IMDB synopsis: “Soon after arriving to a mysterious cabin in the woods, a group of teens discover the dark secret it holds, which forces them to fight for their lives.”

Hello Hip Hop Heads and Horror Fans,

Today I will be reviewing the movie, “Murder in the Woods” directed by Luis Iga Garza. It is the first American horror film with an all Latino cast! It also features legendary actor Danny Trejo! The main premise of the movie is a group of teenagers are going to a cabin in the woods to celebrate one of their friends birthdays! Little do they know they are going to a dangerous place with a killer on the loose! The movie reels you in right away! You see an injured man running in the woods, like he is running away from someone. A car is chasing him and lures him to a cabin, you see the killer get out the car with an axe then it forwards to the next morning.

We are then introduced to the teenagers, you have the outgoing birthday girl Chelsea, the quiet/final girl Fernanda, Jesse the shy guy with a mysterious past, Celeste the self-centered IG thot, Jule the party boy and Gabe the good looking boyfriend. It was funny because some of the characters reminded me of some of my friends. The characters were relatable. As the movie moves forward we start seeing each character getting picked off. From the beginning I knew Fernanda would be the final girl! Finally a Latina final girl in a modern horror movie! I love that most of the characters were smart. For example Fernanda knew about horror movies and the horror tropes which was dope. Also right off the bat I knew Jesse was not trustworthy, I just got this weird vibe. I’m usually bad at predicting the ending sometimes, but this one I sort of nailed it lol!

I won’t give away the ending. You definitely want to watch it. Really good plot twist. This film was reminiscent of Friday the 13th mixed with The Evil Dead and just that 80’s slasher nostalgia, but with a modern twist! I also loved that their wasn’t the typical Latino stereotype. Like there were no “cholos” and the teenagers barely spoke Spanish. When they were praying in English I was lowkey wondering why they didn’t pray “Padre Nuestro” in Spanish lol. Also I noticed the killer barely had any screen time you only saw the murder weapon they were yielding. Pretty dope film, definitely recommend giving it a watch if your a horror fan!

Thank you for reading my movie review. Hope you all enjoyed it! Until next time horror fiends and hip hop heads! While you’re at it follow my blog on social media @7octoberz on Instagram and Facebook! Also follow me on YouTube and IGtv to watch my podcast “Nightmare on Sedgwick Avenue”.

NIGHTMARE ON SEDGWICK AVENUE – “WESTWORLD SET IN CIVIL WAR ERA!!! – ANTEBELLUM MOVIE REVIEW” (SPOILERS)

BY: 7 OCTOBERZ

1_tGpwsoicE65ttmm1_KC4YQ

Movie: Antebellum

Main Cast: Janelle Monáe, Eric Lange, Jena Malone, Jack Huston, Kiersey Clemons, Gabourey Sidibe and more.

Release Date: September 18, 2020 (VOD)

IMDB synopsis: “Successful author Veronica Henley finds herself trapped in a horrifying reality and must uncover the mind-bending mystery before it’s too late.”

Hello Hip Hop Heads and Horror Fans,

Today I will be reviewing the movie, “Antebellum” starring singer Janelle Monáe. This film has been one that I have anticipating all year! Since I saw the trailer I was intrigued and excited to see what it would contribute to the horror genre. The premise of this film is Janelle’s character Veronica who is a successful author, activist and professor wakes up in the era where slavery still exists and is a slave herself. She is tortured and trying to figure out how to escape!

This film comes in a timely manner as we are still dealing with racial turmoil with the fact that cops are still murdering black women and men and no justice is being served! This film reminded me a bit of Westworld without the robots! About 40 minutes into the film we realize this is taking place in the present not the past!

The film takes you on an emotional rollercoaster! The first act we see Veronica being tortured to assimilate to her new “home” and is even branded by this “confederate officer”. That scene had me yelling at the screen! You also see a black women being shot while trying to escape. All this is done on purpose so when the second and third act comes all you want is for Veronica to have her revenge! The second act takes you back to who Veronica really is and what she did before she got to that slavery plantation. It turns out she is an activist and professor with a PhD who speaks against racial oppression and black women empowerment. Which makes you question how come she didn’t escape sooner in the film. Puts into perspective when put in a situation are you all talk or will you take action! Also all the other black people that were kidnapped and placed there did not rebel and escape which was one of the flaws to me, but again it also shows the power of fear!

I won’t give up the final ending. I just wish the ending hadn’t been so abrupt. They could of showed what happened after in more detail. Overall I loved the cinematography, the foreshadowing, clues and the cast was amazing! This film will definitely make you angry, sad and victorious. I believe the theme of this film is that some people would enjoy going back to live in the Civil War era as morbid as that sounds. We all know racism is alive and well in America, sadly our whole country was built on it. This film also shows literally how we can break away from those chains to build a better world! I enjoyed this film, had a few flaws, but this definitely is a new gem in the horror genre! We get another black women final girl! Go check it out it is worth the watch!

Thank you for reading my movie review. Hope you all enjoyed it! Until next time horror fiends and hip hop heads!
