I haven’t had Netflix since 2011. For the next few days I’ll be catching up and offering my thoughts on what I watch. Feel free to use this as your October guide. If there’s a theme for today’s double feature it would be the running time. I have no shame in choosing movies based on […]

The Exorcist III and Ill Repute

Set 15 years after the events of the original film, Lt. Kinderman (George C Scott) is investigating a series of gruesome murders. They are reminiscent of the deceased Gemini Killer, thought dead for the past 15 years. Things get urgent when his friend Father Dyer (Ed Flanders) is killed. A mysterious patient in the psychiatric […]

Hatchet II and Buried Hatchet Stout

Guest Column time! Everyone welcome Mark and his first review. Hey everybody! I’m Mark- me and Jeremy go a loooong way back. We’ve drunk a lot of beer together, and watched even more trashy movies together. It’s pretty awesome. And so, when I found out my buddy had gotten this beer + movie blog started, […]

From the city limits, which contains at least 10 breweries and counting, to Southern and Western Missouri where more are opening. One of the newer brewers is 2nd Shift Brewing out of Wing Haven, MO. Their Ratsalad […]

The Thing and Isolation Ale

The Fifth of March and Old Man Winter still has the Midwest by the short hairs. It seems like it’s been snowing every day but with little to show in the way of accumulation. Just mild cases of grumpiness, people forgetting how to drive, and decimating runs on the dairy department at the local store. […]

Silent Night (2012) and Delirium Noel

I remember when a remake was announced for the trashy Classic Silent Night, Deadly Night. I knew a remake could never reach the heights of depravity as the original. In it, a 5 year old boy, Billy, witnesses his parent’s death at the hands of a Santa Claus gone bad. He and his brother Ricky […]
