A new video series called Modern Horror Movie Talk recently made its premiere on the Arrow in the Head Show YouTube channel, and with each episode of this show we’ll be joining host Tyler Nichols as he covers all new horror releases, the latest horror movie news, and new horror trailers. Films discussed in previous episodes of Modern Horror Movie Talk include Cocaine Bear, Eli Roth’s Thanksgiving, The Pope’s Exorcist (a couple times!), the newly released entry in the Children of the Corn franchise, The Blackening, Scream VI, 65, Infinity Pool, Terrifier 2, Knock at the Cabin, Renfield, and Evil Dead Rise. Now, for the eleventh episode, Tyler is joined by special guest Andrew Hatfield to discuss a trio of horror films that are currently available to watch on the Netflix streaming service: Mike Flanagan’s Stephen King adaptation Gerald’s Game, Gareth Evans’ Apostle, and David Robert Mitchell’s It Follows.
Director Mike Flanagan wrote the Gerald’s Game screenplay with Jeff Howard. The film has the following synopsis: When a harmless sex game between a married couple in a remote retreat suddenly becomes a harrowing fight for survival, wife Jessie must confront long-buried demons within her own mind – and possibly lurking in the shadows of her seemingly empty house. Among those she confronts are ghosts from her past and a vicious dog. Carla Gugino, Bruce Greenwood, Henry Thomas, Carel Struycken, and Kate Siegel star.
Written and directed by Gareth Evans, Apostle tells the following story: London, 1905. Prodigal son Thomas Richardson has returned home, only to learn that his sister is being held for ransom by a religious cult. Determined to get her back at any cost, Thomas travels to the idyllic island where the cult lives under the leadership of the charismatic Prophet Malcolm. As Thomas infiltrates the island’s community, he learns that the corruption of mainland society that they claim to reject has infested the cult’s ranks nonetheless – and uncovers a secret far more evil than he could have imagined. Dan Stevens, Michael Sheen, Lucy Boynton, Mark Lewis Jones, Bill Milner, Kristine Froseth, and Paul Higgins star.
David Robert Mitchell wrote and directed It Follows, telling this story: For 19-year-old Jay, fall should be about school, boys and weekends out at the lake. But after a seemingly innocent sexual encounter, she finds herself plagued by strange visions and the inescapable sense that someone, or something, is following her. Jay and her teenage friends must now find a way to escape the horrors that seem to be only a few steps behind. The film stars Maika Monroe, Keir Gilchrist, Olivia Luccardi, Lili Sepe, and Daniel Zovatto.
