They’ve come for old people’s meds!

Howdy-do, ladies & gentlemen. Welcome to another episode of The Horror Movie Show, hosted yet again by Mark & Jerry. This time around the guys begin their jabberfest with a review of the excellent short animation Office Kingdom. The short can be found, probably, if you google its title. Well worth seeing.

The first full-length flick discussed is 2014′s Robot Overlords, a British story of brave kids spearheading the battle against oppressive mechanical men from space. The amazing cast includes Ben Kingsley & Gillian Anderson.

Next up is 2014 feature Alien Outpost, directed by Jabbar Raisani & starring Adrian Paul, television’s Highlander. Hmmm….

And from 2006 comes Open Water 2: Adrift. It’s a shame the filmmakers didn’t leave this movie floating in the middle of the ocean. Fortunately for listeners, you can be warned away from this soggy mess in time.

Based on the Stephen King story, Graveyard Shift (1990) is an enjoyable horror story with an appearance by fave-rave Brad Dourif.

Which brings us to reviews of three of British director Ben Wheatley‘s most interesting movies. A Field in England (2013) is sort of experimental, very theatrical & just plain odd. Kill List (2011) is a more conventional horror movie & very well done. And last but certainly not least is Sightseers, Wheatley’s 2012 black comedy. All are recommended.
