    ANOTHER BELATED POST

    Day 5: Sweet Sweet Lonely Girl

    Another Shudder exclusive. This one was recommended by the curator for its jump scares. LIES! There was maybe one. This movie was definitely not my cup of tea. I read a lot of good reviews but I just couldn't get behind it. It was slow and there was no decent payoff (in my opinion). If you do watch it, watch past the credits though because there is one very short scene after, which supposedly makes the movie...but whatever. I am throwing my hands up at this one.

    Day 6: Monster Party

    This Shudder exclusive was filmed in only 17 days and has a 75% kill rate with 18 of 24 cast members biting the dust.
    I thoroughly enjoyed this film. Was it amazing? No. But...it has a lot going for it. A decent cast, some gore, some campiness, some one-liners, and some twists.

    Based on a prank the director pulled on his friends. After the original video went viral online, he approached Shudder about making an actual film. Even though the film was scripted, the actors were encouraged to improvise. Parts of the script were redacted so the cast didn't know what would happen. Certain things were pre-recorded and played back for the cast to get their genuine reactions.

    I am impressed with the end product considering this was done completely during the pandemic. The setting is great and oh so familiar considering what everyone has been going through these past few months. The fact that it's 57 minutes long is perfect and goes with the theme. Some of the characters are a bit cliche, but there are some decent jump scares, some tension, and a little gore. There was one thing I didn't completely agree with, but it's just me nit picking. So...if you watch it, let's talk. ;) I don't want to give anything away.
