2017 Catch Up




Let’s face it, horror movies that pertain to be based on real life events are a little crass, but they don’t go over the line by not using the actual names of those involved as they’re more inspired by the event than actually based on it. Wolves at the Door is also “based on” a true event but what the film does that so crass and repugnant is it uses the "based on real events" card as some sort of shock value right at the end of the film where its revealed its not based on, but an actual retelling of a true story. What appears to be a film that’s only simply based on the Charles Manson murders is actually retelling the Manson family murders of actress Sharon Tate.

Insyriated



The civil war in Syria is the most brutal conflict raging today, so much so it has dominated headlines across the World for the last few years. Such is the disregard for human life, Snipers are paid $100 if they kill a man, $60 for a woman, and $40 for a child. Its all a fun game to some.

Detroit


 
Set during the Summer of 1967, Detroit focuses on a small, but infamous, event that took place during the 1967 Detroit riots. The event in question occurred at the Algiers motel where shots fired from a starting pistol were met with a heavy handed, and racially motivated, police response. We follow several characters, including musician Larry Reed (Aglee Smith), racist police officer Philip Krauss (Will Poulter) and onlooker security guard Melvin Dismukes (John Boyega), on this fateful night.
