LEATHERFACE (2017) | Trailer Review

Hey there, everyone! I’m excited to announce a new writer for According to Kristin! Andrew is a HUGE fan of horror movies and will be reviewing trailers & movies for you all to enjoy!

You can find him on Facebook HERE.

Here is his review of the trailer for LEATHERFACE, which will be released exclusively on DirecT on September 21, 2017. The film will also have a limited theatrical run and full VOD release on October 20, 2017.

leatherface_xlgSteely-eyed, perspiration running down his big bald head, and chomping at the bit for a long-sought victory, Charlie Brown grinds his foot into the mud and starts barreling down.  He’s staring down that pigskin like a bull who’s just seen every shade of red imaginable.  Moving like a freight train, the laces are now in his crosshairs, and with each passing step, his worry fades, his confidence grows, and he thinks to himself, “Maybe, just maybe this time, I’m gonna kick that freakin’ thing a mile long”.

…annnnnnd then Lucy yanks the football away again, leaving poor schmuck Chuck flat on his back.

If you’re a fan of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre series, that’s pretty much been your last decade-and-a-half.  We’ve been treated to a remake no one particularly asked for, a prequel to a remake that no one particularly asked for, and let’s not forget Texas “Do Your Thing, Cuz” Chainsaw 3D, the plot-hole ridden follow-up to the original no one particularly asked for.  Despite the cynicism, each time that rusty old chainsaw revved itself up in the trailer, you couldn’t help but get excited.  Perhaps the movie ended up being actually pretty fun (2003’s Chainsaw), or a giant Lone Star mess (2013’s 3D), but trailers are made to entice, they’re made to rouse expectations, and if they draw you in to plunk down some cash, they’ve done their job.

Enter the freshly-released red-band trailer for Leatherface, Lionsgate and Millennium Films’ upcoming prequel to a 43 year-old horror legend… that yet again, no one particularly asked for.  Years of teasing would have you be right to feel cynical.  Let’s use use the Oreo theory:  1974’s classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre would be the delicious center cream portion, with 2013’s Texas Chainsaw 3D and this year’s Leatherface representing the chocolate wafers that surround it on the outside– and there’s probably more movies in this franchise than there are people who prefer the chocolate in an Oreo.

As the title would suggest, Leatherface is an origin story surrounding the mystery of the titular character, who until now, has always remained a silent, brooding force.  In the events prior to 1974’s original, four young inmates kidnap a nurse while escaping from a mental institution, and go on a bloodbath of a road trip, while being pursued by a revenge-striken lawman (Stephen Dorff).  An intriguing setup to the classic story, it sounds like it will mix some of the best elements of The Devil’s Rejects into the recipe.

Even with recent history doing everything in its power to pour cold water all over this trailer- it does deliver all the Texas Chainsaw goodies in oh-so delicious spades- a creepy lullaby soundtrack, skin mask-sewing, old decrepit barns, hanging decorative animal bones, screaming chases in the woods, that unmistakable guttural rattle of the saw, buckets of blood, and of course, a derriere-angled walk through the fields.  Leatherface’s trailer doesn’t give too much away as far as plot, but we do get some intriguing new treats– the youngest member of the Sawyer family given his first chainsaw as a birthday present, a brutal diner massacre, and a child sporting a giant pig head.  If all of that didn’t begin to win you back, there’s also the heading on the trailer that this film is directed by Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, the duo behind 2007’s blood-drenched masterpiece, Inside (À l’intérieur).

You know what?  I’m sold.  Oreos and cynicism can take a hike.  Maybe there’s the chance it’ll all end up like the recent questionable Chainsaw entries when Leatherface greets us this fall, but hike Lucy the ball for another round cause maybe, just maybe this time we’ll kick it a mile long.

– Andrew B.

Movie Review by Kristin: KIDNAP | #kidnapmovie @kidnapmovie

img_9184

What’s up, movie lovers??

I had a chance to check out KIDNAP last weekend and thought it was absolutely insane! If you suffer from anxiety AT ALL, proceed with caution!

SYNOPSIS: A mother stops at nothing to recover her kidnapped son.

The movie starts out with Karla (Halle Berry) working at a diner while her young son, Frankie (Sage Correa) sits at the counter. Her replacement has yet to show up, which leaves Karla alone to serve the rude customers. She finally leaves and takes Frankie to the park where there’s a carnival going on.

Karla and Frankie have a “Marco/Polo” system to keep track of where the other one is because Frankie likes to hide, but Karla steps away from her son for a moment to answer a phone call from her divorce attorney and that’s a wrap. Karla frantically searches for Frankie around the carnival and sees him being led to a car by a stranger. She chases after him, but the car speeds away. Karla jumps in her mini van and chases them.

Now, I sat there wondering what the chances were that this stranger danger was able to have a conversation with Frankie while Karla was on the phone and then had the time to casually walk over to her car with him without anyone noticing anything suspicious. That’s just my analytical mind over thinking.

In any case, Karla chases the car on the highway in a desperate attempt to get her son back. Of course, in a car chase, you have to worry about dodging other cars and accidents, running out of gas and, in Karla’s situation, a strange dude who is threatening to kill her and Frankie if she continues to chase them. He even dangles Frankie out of the car while driving.

These people definitely messed with the wrong momma!! Karla does everything in her power to get Frankie back unscathed, even if it means crashing her car and sneaking into their creepy home. She discovers that this couple has been involved in a child abduction ring within four states and manages to save Frankie and two other girls in the process.

All in all, I thought this was a good movie. Can’t say it was my favorite, but it was cool to see the lengths someone might go to in order to save their child. Movies like this typically piss me off though because in this day and age, you can’t leave your child alone for a second without the possibility of something crazy like this happening. I found myself yelling at the TV for Karla not to pick up that phone call! Or, at the very least, not to turn around where she can’t see her son sitting alone on a bench. It’s definitely an edge-of-your seat kind of film!

The performances were fantastic too. Halle Berry as a frantic mom was the epitome of a strong woman, and the abductors were EXTRA creepy.

I’d recommend it though, so check it out!

THE STRUTS upgrade London show due to overwhelming demand | #thestruts #music

IMG_9796

LIVE IN LONDON ‘FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY’

**VENUE UPGRADE** DUE TO OVERWHELMING DEMAND ELECTRIC BALLROOM

Monday 18th September **Tickets on sale NOW** https://www.livenation.co.uk/artist/the-struts-tickets?omq=the%20struts

BRAND NEW LYRIC VIDEO ‘ONE NIGHT ONLY’ WATCH HERE

ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE
“OUR FAVOURITE SONGS RIGHT NOW!”
“Like the Strokes reborn as Queen super-fans – right down to singer Luke Spiller’s amazingly spot-on Freddie Mercury impression.”

Due to overwhelming demand, The Struts’ exclusive UK headline show on Monday 18th September – announced last week for The Garage, Islington – will now be at Camden’s Electric Ballroom.

Already proving to be the hottest ticket in town, the flamboyant four-piece stride back across the Atlantic to play in London in celebration of their brand new single ‘One Night Only’, ahead of their massive US tour with Foo Fighters in October.

The recently-released lyric video captures the band in true rock’n’roll style, and is the perfect taster for their hugely anticipated second album, due next year. It’s the follow up to their critically acclaimed 2016 debut Everybody Wants.

WATCH ‘ONE NIGHT ONLY’ HERE

Having recently played to over 60,000 fans supporting The Who in Quebec to a rapturous reception, and being included in Rolling Stone Magazine’s Playlist alongside the likes of NIN, Chance The Rapper and St Vincent, The Struts’ meteoric rise continues a-pace. ‘One Night Only’ has set fire to American radio and looks set to be the breakout hit of the summer.

The single has been greeted with rave reviews in the UK with Kerrang magazine devoting two pages to the band’s magnificent return and The Sun declaring, “’One Night Only’ is an anthemic and bombastic tune inspired by the glory days of British glam rock.”

Classic Rock claim, “The Struts continue their inexorable march to world domination with [their] effervescent new song… a typically huge chorus and bits that sound like Queen and little bits that sound a bit like Coldplay, machined-tooled for swaying audiences and drunken, communal singalongs”, whilst music blogs across the spectrum have been hailing the genius of the new single.

The Struts are Luke Spiller, Adam Slack (guitar), Jed Elliott (bass) and Gethin Davies (drums).

ARTIST TO WATCH: WENS | “Bones” @wensmusic #music

FullSizeRenderWhat’s up, music lovers?!

If you know me at all, you know how much I LOVE finding new artists to listen to. Thankfully, I also have great taste in TV shows that introduce me to a plethora of amazing new music every week!

Last week was no exception, as I learned about a new artist, WENS. Her track, “Bones,” was featured on an episode of Teen Wolf and it’s been stuck in my head ever since!

To the left is the track artwork featured on Apple Music and below is the audio for the song on YouTube. This song has a blend of R&B and almost alternative vocals on top of a hip-hop influenced track. It’s a creative fusion of incredible sounds and I can’t wait to hear more from this Los Angeles native.

You can find WENS on Twitter HERE and you can check out the song below:
