Foxcatcher

Creepy performance by Steve Carrell. This is also a very creepy TRUE story that only features wrestling as a theme. There is a LOT more going on here. 8.5/10 I say that because I avoided it for many moons since I don’t dig wrestling much. A must for Steve Carrell fans as well as fans of dark stories. It was annoying at times because I don’t understand nationalistic sport bullshit but the story was adapted well. Rent in SD $2.99 on Prime Video.

Professor/Tutor/Dad/Husband/Son. rileyonfilm.com. My favorite horror movie is probably going to be a toss up between Tusk and Insidious. Atmospheric Horror is my favorite subgenre. I also post news articles on politics and the occasional blog post on things other than horror movies.

Yeah it was good. Very dark though, I wanted to warn my readers of that. Not everyone will love it. Crazy suspense building thriller for sure. Thanks Jason!!!
