Top Ten Underrated Horror Movies (Part 10/10)

We have finally made it to the end

What could my top choice be?

There are so many great movies out there, but when I decided to make this list, I knew there was only one more that would fill my number one slot and throughout the process of making the list, that number one pick never changed.

-

1. American Mary (2012)

Yes, my top choice also features the amazingly talented Katharine Isabelle.

I found this move either at the end of 2015 or just the beginning of 2016, but once I saw it, it bumped right up my list to favorite horror movies ever. Not just underrated, but IN GENERAL.

It stars Katharine Isabelle and is the revenge movie to end all revenge movies. It is wonderfully twisted and fucked up in all the right ways, like every horror movie should be.

Isabelle plays the role of a medical student, who is going through financial problems, but determined to succeed in her chosen profession.

Desperate for money to pay her bills, she decides to seek work as a stripper, but because she is a medical student, she is instead offered $5000 to save a man’s life, after being beaten.

Needing the money, she does so, but is immediately struck with disgust returns home, in complete panic over the ordeal. 

She is offered quite a bit more money to perform a surgery, which would involve removing a girl’s nipples and labia, to appear more like a human doll. She offered $10,000 and an extra $2,000 to just show up.

Despite the way she felt at the strip club, she agrees and successfully performs the surgery.

Some time passes and during her residency, she is invited to a party, where she gets drugged and sexually assaulted at by her former teacher.

Unable to cope with the attack, she drops out of medical school and goes back to the strip club, where she pays workers to bring her attacker to her.

She starts working at the strip club and starts working full time as a surgeon for consensual body modification, all while continuing to torture her attacker on the side.

This movie takes a new spin on revenge story and as I have said before in my number two pick, Katharine Isabelle is hypnotic on the screen and when she is acting, your eyes stay on her and only her.

What I have explained is only part of the plot and I will not give the rest away, because the element of surprise needs to be there if you intend to watch this.

It is written and directed by the Soska sisters who had a cameo in the film, shown above. 

I have never fallen in love with a horror movie so quickly before and I urge you all to give it a chance, because not a lot of people have heard of this movie and it is such a visual masterpiece.

I will say this though, the climax and ending happens a bit fast and because of that, it does end a little underwhelming, which is a shame, because everything else is just so flawless and absolutely chilling.

I repeat, absolutely chilling.

Watch the trailer and see for yourself. If you are as intrigued as I was, you will find a way to see this movie.


Tom Hardy set to break hearts as he pays an emotional tribute to his late canine companion Woody with final CBeebies Bedtime Stories appearance

He previously caused ‘ovaries’ to explode all over the nation following his appearance on Cbeebies for the Mother’s Day edition of Bedtime Stories.

And now Tom hardy is set to make a valiant return to the children’s series, this time paying tribute to his late dog Woody who passed away in June.

The 39-year-old actor will appear on the episode - which was filmed before his canine companion’s sad death - and read the story of Fleabag, by Helen Stephens, on National Dog Day on August 26th.


The heart-warming story follows a friendship between a young boy and a scruffy dog, who needs a home, while the boy wants a pet pooch.

After both their longing, the two come across one another with drama and fun ensuing before Fleabag eventually finds the home he has been craving for.

Lovingly petting his late dog in the teaser, he speaks to the camera: 'Put now it’s time for you to go on an adventure of your own. In your dreams. So, cuddle up to your snuggly friend and drift off to sleep.’

The final of five episodes, Tom previously recorded the series with his loyal dog Woody by his side and his four-legged friend had become a fixture on film sets before his death in June.

Announcing his passing, the Peaky Blinder’s star took to his blog to share a heartfelt tribute to his six-year-old dog, explaining that he died after a six-month battle with polymyositisis, which is a muscle disorder.

Tom called Woody his 'best friend’, revealing how he rescued the animal when he was filming his 2012 movie Lawless in Atlanta.(+)

Badass Black Women History Month:
Celebrating 28 Black Women Who Said,
“Fuck it, I’ll Do It!”

Day 28: Bree Newsome
The Woman Who Brought Down The Confederacy 

On June 17th, 2015, a white man walked into a historically black church in Charleston, SC and murdered nine people. A state senator, mothers, aunts, and choir members joined in prayer would lose their lives because of white pride and racism. White pride and racism that was emboldened by the Confederate flag. A flag that waved proudly above symbols of power and justice. The incident led to unending debates over the meaning of the flag. But, the flag remained  as images of the perpetrator holding that same flag ran across TV screens. It was as though the history of the flag outweighed the loss of nine black lives. As though that flag was more important than respecting the black lives that did not want to look up at a symbol aligned with hate every day. 

Until June 27, 2015. That’s when a woman named Bree Newsome went, fuck it, I’ll do it. That day, she climbed a flagpole and took that flag down. Bree went to high school in Columbia, Maryland. Bree is a 31-year-old filmmaker, musician, speaker, and activist from Charlotte, North Carolina. She studied film at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts after winning a scholarship for a short animated film she created. She would go on to win several awards––the Outstanding Independent Short film award in the Black Reel Awards of 2012 and the Best Short Film at the BET Urban World Film Festival. Her film Wake would be screened at festivals like Cannes and the Montreal International Black Film Festival. Bree Newsome would even become the first black undergraduate to be nominated for the Wasserman Award, NYU Film School’s top honor in recognition for outstanding achievement in film.

Bree was not an activist. Bree was a filmmaker, but the conditions she faced as a black woman forced her into activism. The sci-fi and horror genres that Bree worked in didn’t offer many opportunities for women of color. "The space that exists for many of us, as a young black girl, is so extremely limited so that you really can’t go very far without being an activist, without being in defiance of something.“ She said an a panel at Spelman College in 2014. If Bree wanted more opportunities, she had to fight for them. If Bree wanted anything to change, she had to fight for it.

So, ten days after the Charleston Massacre, unable to sleep because of the horrors she saw, Bree climbed a flagpole and removed the flag a murderer had proudly waved. Bree took the flag down out of respect for those nine lives and all the lives before them that had been harmed because of that flag. When she came down, she was arrested and given a $3,000 bond. The flag was put back up 45 minutes later. The flag was taken down for good on July 10th, 2015––13 days after Bree’s action. 

Bree is a black woman who was forced to action because of the conditions around her. In this country, there have always been black women forced to action. We’re still being forced to action and––with support or without it––we’re doing what we have to do to make the change we want to see happen. 

Ava DuVernay (b. 1972) is the award-winning director of films such as Middle of Nowhere, Selma, and 13th. She was the first black female director to be nominated for a Golden Globe and an Academy Award.

She won the Best Director Prize at the Sundance Film Festival in 2012, the first African-American woman to do so. She directed a number of documentaries, mostly focused on the African-American experience.

Tom Hardy swaps the red carpet for the octagon as he celebrates his 40th birthday cheering on Geordie Shore’s Aaron Chalmers in MMA fight with wife Charlotte Riley

He’s the A list actor who has starred in several Hollywood blockbusters.

But Tom Hardy revealed he was an unexpected fan of Geordie Shore’s Aaron Chalmers, as he attended the BAMMA 31 held at SSE Arena Wembley on Friday night.

The Revenant actor celebrated his 40th birthday at the event with wife Charlotte Riley, and dressed down for the occasion in a casual ensemble.

Tom sported an unkempt beard, and kept a low profile by pulling a baseball cap low over his face. 

The Mad Max actor looked completely engrossed in the fight, where Aaron was triumphant on the night - beating his opponent Alex Thompson in just 30 seconds via knockout.

The pair’s outing comes after Tom posted a heartfelt tribute to his pet dog Woody, announcing the pooch had sadly passed away aged six.

The actor took to his blog to tell his fans about his loss, explaining that Woody died earlier this week after a six-month battle with polymyositisis, which is a muscle disorder.

Tom called Woody his ‘best friend’, revealing how he rescued the animal when he was filming his 2012 movie Lawless in Atlanta.

Remember when you left Gotham? Before all this, before Batman? You were gone seven years. Seven years I waited, hoping that you wouldn’t come back. Every year, I took a holiday. I went to Florence, there’s this cafe, on the banks of the Arno. Every fine evening, I’d sit there and order a Fernet Branca. I had this fantasy, that I would look across the tables and I’d see you there, with a wife and maybe a couple of kids. You wouldn’t say anything to me, nor me to you. But we’d both know that you’d made it, that you were happy. I never wanted you to come back to Gotham. I always knew there was nothing here for you, except pain and tragedy. And I wanted something more for you than that. I still do.
