The Black Dog Newsletter: Of Memorials and Donations Edition!
There will be a memorial service for Frank and Danse, who’ve both recently passed away, on June 23rd at 5:30 pm in Grandview Park. There’s also a Go-Fund me campaign to help out their family here if you’re interested. There's a nice post about these two here. They are missed.
We’ve just unleashed a new video of me prattling on about some movies that I hadn’t ever seen until recently. Check it out here and also for a bunch of others we've done!
Anything for Jackson – Cool-looking horror number about a nice Satanist couple who kidnap a pregnant woman with the hopes of putting their dead grandson’s spirit into the unborn child. Things don’t go as planned. If you can call that a plan.
Godzilla vs. Kong – For those of you who didn’t shill out $25 a couple of months ago for VOD, now you can spend a paltry $6 to watch a really big ape fight a really big lizard. Who’s your money on?
The Great War of Archimedes – In 1933 Japan a young math guy discovers a conspiracy around the building of the world’s biggest battleship.
H.P. Lovecraft’s The Deep Ones – Couple rents an Air BNB that’s surrounded by a weirdo cult and their ancient sea god/monster. I wonder if they had to pay extra for that?
I Hate Suzie Season 1 – Female celebrity’s life is going topsy-turvy after her phone is hacked and some ribald photos are unleashed. Supposed to be a really funny shoe!
Impetigore – Cool (and best named) horror film from Indonesia about a woman returning to her village to inherit a property. Is it haunted? I don’t know! I haven’t seen it yet so stop asking me! Blu Ray only.
The Reckoning – A woman is accused of being a witch. “Let’s build a bridge out of her!”. Nice-looking horror (lots of horror this week, rejoice!) from Dog Soldiers director, Neil Marshall.
Streetwise/Tiny: The Life of Erin Blackwell – Excellent, gritty doc from 1984 follows some homeless teens on the streets of Seattle. Also includes a doc later made about one of them – Tiny. Criterion release.
The Unholy – Deaf girl is visited by the Virgin Mary (good thing she was home) who mysteriously cures her. Or did she? Maybe!
Wrath of Man – Guy Ritchie teams up with Statham for another kick at the crime can. Heard this is a gooden!
