Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – (None Available Yet)

A Death Rider, played by Devon Sawa, arrived upon a Vampire Sanctuary. The sanctuary is protected by Count Holliday, played by Julian Sands, and any transgressions against the Vampire within will lead to consequences. Regardless of the warnings, what follows is blood and violence.

Danzig is bringing you his over-the-top violent and bloody vision to the screen with this incredibly long-named movie. If you are a fan of grindhouse-style films and love gore-filled horror, then this film will be low rent, but likely fun to MST3K with good friends.

Ellie & Abbie – Releasing in Theaters and Streaming
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – 100%

For Ellie, played by Sophie Hawkshaw, her crush on her classmate Abbie, played by Zoe Terakes, has been her biggest secret, but when she tells her mother, she accidentally lets her mother know she is gay. When things are at their worst, her dead aunt, a lesbian activist from the 80s, appears to her to help guide her through coming out.

This film does a good job taking the situation of coming out seriously, while also managing to be positive and emotional. If you are looking for a pro-LGBT film, it does still follow the trope of a gay person coming out, instead of simply being a movie involving gay characters. We take what we can get for now though.

The Show – Releasing in Theaters
