March 2017: To-Be Watched

Welp, as expected I didn’t make it through my February TBW List. I’ll blame it on February being a short month. In addition to the three carryover films from last month, I’ve added a few more. I’ve got a couple of vacation days scheduled for March so maybe I can put a dent in this list. I also hope to crack into Resident Evil 7: Biohazard (PS4) which I’ve had sitting unopened on my coffee table since mid-February.

To-Be Watched:

Madman (1982)
Southbound (2016)
The Thaw (2009)
Get Out (2017)
A Cure for Wellness (2017)
Green Room (2016)

February 2017 Horror Pack Unboxing

Horror Pack is a monthly horror movie subscription service that delivers 4 horror films to your door each month.

Announced for 2017, each monthly Blu-Ray pack will include a limited edition Horror Pack Blu-Ray.

Monthly subscription plans range from $19.99 per month for DVD to $24.99 for Blu-Ray with free U.S. shipping. Discounted plans are available if you pre-pay for multiple months. Subscribers of each plan receive the same movies, however the Blu-Ray and DVD pack movies do differ. For example, all Blu-Ray subscribers receive the same 4 Blu-Ray discs and accordingly, all DVD subscribers receive the same 4 DVDs. Subscribing to both the Blu-Ray and DVD plans would result in 8 unique movies each month, which is something I’m seriously considering.

Santa Clarita Diet: Season One Review

For those who follow my site, you probably recall that I try to avoid trailers and spoilers whenever possible. A few weeks ago I saw a headline in my Facebook feed mentioning Drew Barrymore’s upcoming original series developed for Netflix was a zombie show. While the zombie angle was intriguing,  it somewhat bothered me as I would have preferred to discover the nature of the show on my own. In all honesty though, I probably wouldn’t have turned to a Drew Barrymore comedy on my own without knowing this, so it’s probably good that I found out the zombie twist. If not for reading the Facebook headline, I probably would have seen the preview on Netflix. I applaud myself for avoiding the trailer. It wasn’t easy as Netflix prominently featured an auto-play preview for Santa Clarita Diet and man, it was frustrating having to navigate out of that queue every time I logged into Netflix.

Waiting for October

I don’t know where August went, and September is flying by too! Some of you may know that by day, I work full-time as a medical librarian. Classes started back up in August and frankly, work has been crazy busy. I looked back and was horrified to learn I haven’t watched a horror movie since the second week of July. I have still been participating in the horror world, though. In July I renewed my Horror Block and Box of Dread subscriptions and have been enjoying those. I’ll try and do a better job of adding unboxing posts to the blog. And last week I received my pre-ordered copy of Until Dawn. I’d like to post a review of that here too but in short, it’s an awesome game.
