If this is your first visit to my blog for the 100-Word Horror Review, welcome!
I love horror and its sub-genres and blends. I’m weird, Black, and Southern. I’m walking trauma and pain, torment and passion, terror and pleasure. From time to time, I watch #horror movies. These are usually available on streaming services and are “new-to-me.” With the glut of content available, I do not always catch the latest and greatest when it’s released.
But sometimes, when the night whispers and the television glitches, I’m seduced to the horrible, the awful and profane.
I record what I have witnessed.
The goal is to keep the review “100.” That means honest and authentic gut responses. I’m slicing and dicing into the movie’s meaty bits.
Put down the bloodied steak and let’s bite into something meatier.
Tonight’s horror movie selection is OLD PEOPLE.
Title: Old People
Director: Andy Fetscher
Released: October 2022
Streaming Service: Netflix
Rating: Three out of Five Skulls
Keepin’ it 100 [word count begins now]: This movie takes the scary old people troupe and infuses it with the current plight of an aging boomer population. The film centers on a family wedding and an elderly patriarch whose been relocated to an eldercare location. Teenage love, a young child, a wedding and disgruntled old people begin to release their frustration upon the youth, literally destroying them in the most violent and disgusting manner possible. Slow moving, wheezing with decaying flesh, the old act like zombies. The divorced couple do all they can to survive.
