I visited the historic Mayfair Theatre in Ottawa, Ontario last night. Such an amazing place to enjoy a film, it has been around since 1932 and the popcorn prices are still outrageously reasonable!
My friends and I watched a movie called Trench 11, which is a horror film set in World War I. This film is all about how evil men of science can get! Which is pretty fucking evil.
There is only one woman in the entire film, and her time on screen is brief. The man she is sleeping with tells her, “she’ll love Winnipeg.” Which everyone in the theatre got a real kick out of. (No offense, Winnipeg.)
We’ve seen Nazi zombies before (Dead Snow) but this film approaches the subject in a way that … is in my opinion, actually fairly realistic, setting it apart from many other films in the genre.
Some might say the disturbing creatures that used to be men in this movie are not zombies but … I say close enough!
Final thought: Trench 11 is 1,000 times better than The Walking Dead. Fear parasitic worms and being trapped underground? This film is for you!
Oh wow, it is September! I am stoked for Halloween season! So much so, I actually thought it was October for the majority of yesterday … or was it the day before …
Anyways, to celebrate this most magical time of year, here’s a list of what I think are the best scary movies on Netflix Canada. Listed from the highest to lowest rated on Rotten Tomatoes.
Great film, female director, and a monster that through a strange series of events has become a gay icon!
What We Do In The Shadows
I could watch this movie every day for the rest of my life. If you haven’t seen it, you aren’t living. This one is extra great because your scaredy cat friends will watch it with you!
To be honest, I don’t remember anything about this movie but I think I liked it so … ya. What I know for certain is, I like the soundtrack in the trailer! Maybe don’t watch the trailer though, you’ll learn too much, just dive into this one if you are into suspense!
This one can really hit home with Canadians, especially ones with shitty boyfriends who force them to go camping! The fact that it is relatable, is what makes it so scary. This could really happen, to you. Or to me, I love camping.
Totally shit story to be honest … but with the amazing atmosphere you expect from a Guillermo del Toro film! Also, it was filmed in Toronto and Kingston, Ontario. Which is a fun tidbit for Canadians to know!
If you love Natasha Lyonne and Chloë Sevigny … and maybe fear pregnancy … how can you not watch this movie? Just make sure you are so high when you watch it that you don’t remember the disturbing scenes that start her whole wild journey.
I hope at least one of these films makes you scream!
This past Caturday my friends and I travelled from Ottawa, Ontario to a little town called Smiths Falls, for Tweed’s 3rd Annual Shindig. Such a fun event in a tiny little town! There was a big crowd but lots of comfy places to sit and chill and a vape lounge for medical patients like myself!
The attendees, food, and acts were wonderful. I arrived late because I struggle with time and space, luckily I made it to see Iskwé, The Sorority and Snoop Dogg!
Iskwé’s performance was powerful and included at least one Alanis Morrisette cover. Which was amazing, obviously. The Sorority was also super dope and mesmerizing! Love them.
Then … Snoop got on stage and his purrformance was purrfect and highly entertaining. I think the last video below (of him dancing) is the greatest video I have ever made and I take zero credit for its greatness.
I heard lots of people from the town of Smiths Falls talking at the event about how much it meant to them to have such a concert in their hometown, it was super heartwarming.
It has been awhile since I’ve attended a community event and brought my camera with me. So glad I did for this one. Also … Is this dog stoned? No! She’s @instafrancis!
The moment I finally got why everyone kept talking about that neon sign …
Hope to see y’all next year at the 4th Annual Shindig!
