Have you tried one of those escape rooms yet? If so, were you able to actually escape? I’ve tried TWICE now and still haven’t made it out, which makes the premise of Escape Room pretty scary. A group of strangers compete in an escape room, supposedly for a cash prize. They’re actually playing to survive, which means I’d be dead two times over by now. So, who wants to see Escape Room EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
It’s the weekend before Halloween and the perfect time for a SCARY MOVIE! Or maybe you’d prefer something that isn’t scary, if you’re a big chicken (yes, I’m making clucking sounds at YOU). Either way, don’t buy any tickets before looking over the Julie Says So TOP 5 MOVIES to see now. We can’t have you wasting money on some garbage-movie.
5. I didn’t think Jonah Hill did anything between films that didn’t involve a bong, but I was wrong. He actually wrote and directed a movie called Mid90’s which is far better than it deserves to be, since you’re just watching a kid get his butt kicked repeatedly. Continue reading →
I hate to say it, but the nun from The Nun isn’t that scary to me. Why? I don’t know. Maybe because I went to Catholic School with a bunch of nuns and, even though they often tried to be, they weren’t that scary. OH, unless you tried to chew gum in their class. They’d haunt your soul for all eternity if they caught you doing that.
Anyhow, do you want to see The Nun EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
I joined Jane McGarry and Alanna Sarabia today on Good Morning Texas to discuss the big November movies everyone should watch for. Since it’s Halloween, they also asked me to show up in costume and talk about my favorite SCARY movies. I learned a number of things from the costume I wore today (see above), namely that Kylo Ren is forever shutting his skirts in car doors and struggling to keep them out of toilets. Click HERE to watch the segment, and remember to check the Julie Says So FREE MOVIE PASSES page to see what I’m giving away next. I’m also posting the Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri trailer below, since we discussed it today. Be warned that it is PACKED with really REALLY foul language, which is probably why I love it so. Continue reading →
You either LOVE scary movies or you HATE THEM.
I don’t understand people who don’t like scary movies, though. YES, you will be scared and NO, you probably won’t sleep well for a while. If you’re lucky and the movie is REALLY SCARY, you might even have a hard time walking around your house in broad daylight for a few days. In best case scenarios, you might recall moments from the movie at 3:07am in the morning, when you’re stumbling in the dark towards the bathroom. Or when you have soap in your eyes in the shower. Or, best of all, when you’re driving alone down a dark, empty road late at night.
Yes, if a scary movie is REALLY GOOD, it will ruin you for a long time to come and isn’t that what we really want?
So, who wants so see Annabelle: Creation EARLY & FOR FREE? Continue reading →
I just watched the trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane again and got chills up and down my arms! What the hell is happening here? Speculation has run the gamut and the fact that J.J. Abrams is a producer has added to the obvious Cloverfield monster-movie connections. I can tell you that my research (meaning the 5 minutes I just spent on Google) determined that this project was around long before it was attached to Abrams and that there was originally no mention of monsters. That honestly tells us nothing so instead of speculating any further, just grab free passes to see 10 Cloverfield Lane by clicking HERE, then watch that freaky trailer again. Seriously, what the hell is happening here?!!!
You just can’t decide about seeing The Witch, can you? Some people say it’s insanely scary, others say it’s just a big disappointment. Even I had a hard time making up my mind about it (read my review of The Witch HERE). The BEST way to see a movie you’re not sure about is FOR FREE, right? And lucky for us I have a few passes to see The Witch, but only 2 pair. Don’t complain, it was the most I could get but they are RUN OF ENGAGEMENT passes. That means you can use them whenever you want at any Dallas-area AMC Theater. Here’s what you have to do to get them.
I will give these passes to the first 2 people who post pictures of their favorite witches in the “Comments” section. For example, here’s mine:
Got it? Good. And this is NOT a time for political statements so no pictures of Hilary Clinton please, or any other candidates. Yeah, I know you were already photoshopping Donald Trump on a broom. GOOD LUCK!
Crimson Peak stars Mia Wasikowska as Edith. She is a Victorian-era novelist who falls in love with a mysterious blue blood, played by Tom Hiddleston. She travels with he and his sister, Lucille (Jessica Chastain) to their dilapidated mansion, which appears to be infested with ghosts. Can Edith’s love save them from that which haunts them? Or will the terrible secrets buried within destroy them all?
Well, obviously it’s the latter. Continue reading →
I thought Krampus was a joke when I first heard about him. The old German legend about an anti-Santa who came for the BAD kids seemed too deliciously warped to even be true. Then I saw the demented depictions of him and…well, it was love at first sight. I can’t WAIT until the holidays roll around each year so I can post pictures of Krampus, like this one.
You can imagine how excited I was to hear they were making a Krampus movie, but I was apprehensive as well. Could they make something that was scary AND a little funny, like the Krampus legend itself? The cast list hints that they HAVE, with talented actors like Toni Collette and Allison Tolman paired with funny guys, Adam Scott and David Koecher. I’ve watched the trailer at least 15 times though and STILL can’t decide if it looks good. I guess we’ll have to wait until December 4th to find out but until then, check out the trailer below and tell me what YOU think.

A movie doesn’t always have to jump out of the shadows to scare the bejeezus out of you. Sometimes unease produces better results when it’s kept on a low, extended simmer. This happens to be the case for the Austrian psychological thriller, Goodnight Mommy.
Twin boys welcome their mother home from the hospital but she’s unrecognizable under bandages. Her demeanor has also changed greatly from the loving Mom the boys remember. The twins convince themselves that she is NOT their mother after all, but where has she gone? How will they prove it? Even worse, what if they’re WRONG?
It’s clear from the start that something isn’t right in Goodnight Mommy, but it’s hard to tell what exactly is wrong. Mom definitely isn’t herself but the boys, who collect cockroaches and play in graveyards for fun, seem a bit OFF as well. Hints are dropped and a story slowly unravels until the moment you clutch the armrest and call out your profanity of choice (I think I went with “HOLY SH*TBALLS!”).
I can’t recommend Goodnight Mommy to those who need men in hockey masks or computer-generated monsters to be scared out of their seats. If you like your scary movies with a touch of art, creepy cornfields and loads of melancholia though, Goodnight Mommy is the film for you. -B
Goodnight Mommy is playing at the Angelika Film Center in Dallas. You can look for those tickets HERE.
