Scare Me tells a spirited, funny story that will entertain viewers, but leaves it up to their imagination to really find the scares in these spooky stories.  For more information, check out our review!

For the Nostalgic Horror Fan - Scary Stories (Amazon)
Get into the Halloween spirit with the retelling of the classic children's tales.  The remake did a great job translating the iconic imagery to the big screen and the whole film was much better than it should have been!  For more information, check out our review!

For the Faith-Forward Fans - I Still Believe (Hulu)
I Still Believe tells an amazing story with solid performances by its two leads and an inspiring message that was tweaked a little too much for Hollywood in the wrong ways.  For more information, check out our review!

For the Heist or Guy Ritchie Fans - The Gentlemen (Showtime)
The Gentlemen is classic Guy Ritchie: a fantastic cast acting in a complicated crime caper fueled by Ritchie's amazing style and sharp, clever writing.  Dignify yourself and don't miss this one.    For more information, check out our review!
