Gates of Haley: Truth is Scarier Than Fiction

Sep 19th, 2019 Bonus Features, Gates of Haley J

Dearest Truthseekers, Being an adrenaline junkie with a lust for anything disgusting and scary, I’ve done it all in the name of psychotic euphoria. Because let’s be honest fellow horror freaks, nothing is better than having the absolute shit scared out of you for funsies. Maybe it’s a weird fetish, maybe it’s the traumas of life. Fuck it, maybe I’m just bored with serenity, but…

Gates of Haley American Psycho

Gates of Haley: IT Chapter Two Review

Sep 12th, 2019 Bonus Features, Gates of Haley J

Dearest Constant Watchers, In the world of horror, holding high expectations for remakes and sequels typically ends in disappointment and a short, vibrantly-colored rant as the credits roll. Even with multimillion-dollar budgets, top quality CGI, a handful of new ideas, and plenty of previously written plot points to cover, the ball tends to be dropped more than it’s sent rolling. IT Chapter One was a breath…

Pet Sematary 2019

TrailerTown – Pet Sematary (2019)

Oct 11th, 2018 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

Don’t act surprised, you knew we’d be dropping a TrailerTown review for the new Pet Sematary movie this week. This trailer has been everywhere online, and we’ve watched it about 25 times. The good news is that it looks like the writers and the cast have worked hard to keep this story true to what makes it horrifying. The bad news is that we have…

The Twilight Zone

TrailerTown – The Twilight Zone (2019)

Sep 20th, 2018 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

Sometimes a teaser is all you need to fangirl out, and that’s exactly what happened when CBS released a TrailerTown for their upcoming revival of The Twilight Zone. Not only do we get thrust back through the metaphysical wormhole of Rod Serling’s mindhole, but they officially announce who the host and narrator of this version of the seminal classic will be: Jordan Peele! It’s all there,…

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

TrailerTown – The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

Sep 13th, 2018 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

Whenever the Coen Brothers release a new movie, it is of immediate interest to us at High Five: The Podcast, but when they release a movie that is a Western anthology called The Ballad of Buster Scruggs and it looks as star-packed and wacky as this TrailerTown, we get a whole new range of feelings. We know the Coen Brothers can direct the shit out of…

Halloween 2018 trailer

TrailerTown – Halloween (2018)

Sep 6th, 2018 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

There’s no introduction needed for High Five: The Podcast’s love of horror movies, and more specifically, the Halloween movies. John Carpenter created a masterpiece in 1978, and since then the quality has…..wavered a bit, let’s say, but ever since David Gordon Green and Danny McBride (surprising, we know) got attached to the project, we’ve been nothing but smiles. Early reactions to con footage gave us early…

Widows Trailer

TrailerTown – Widows

Aug 16th, 2018 Bonus Features, Episodes, TrailerTown J

They say “Too much of a good thing is a bad thing,” but when it comes to Steve McQueen’s newest film, Widows, too many good things look to make an amazing thing! Steven McQueen (Hunger, 12 Years a Slave, Shame) comes back to the screen hard with his Gillian Flynn-penned heist thriller which looks to be a cross between Ocean’s Eleven and The First Wives Club, but with…

Maniac Netflix

TrailerTown – MANIAC (Netflix)

Aug 9th, 2018 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

There are a lot of names in Hollywood that perk up our ears for different reason. When we hear “Emma Stone” we get interested and excited to see what she’ll try out next. When we hear “Jonah Hill” we wonder which outlandish character he will portray next and how much weight he will have inevitably gained or lost for the role. When we hear “Cary…

Luz Trailer

TrailerTown – Luz

Aug 2nd, 2018 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

Luz looks like a weird movie. The good news is that we LOVE weird movies, especially weird horror movies. Don’t get us wrong, we will go see studio horror movies like IT and A Quiet Place all day long, but when we hear that first-time writer/director Tilman Singer is making a throwback possession horror movie exclusively shot on 16mm, our ears perk up. Then we saw the…

Overlord trailer

TrailerTown – Overlord

Jul 19th, 2018 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

When the Overlord trailer showed up this week, we were honestly pretty nervous.  The last time J.J. Abrams threw us a surprise movie he produced we got The Cloverfield Paradox and we’re still trying to forget that one. Then Overlord popped up and just as our eyes began to roll, J.J. tells us this is a WW2 movie about Nazi zombies and we paid attention. Then this TrailerTown came out and…
