Upgrade.png

Released January 18th

Upgrade (2018) - The AI is Coming to Kill You Barbara!

Upgrade is a 2018 cyberpunk action film written and directed by Leigh Whannell, and starring Logan Marshall-Green, Betty Gabriel, and Harrison Gilbertson. While not a smash hit in 2018 it has gained a following due to its unique cinematography, unsettling score and relevancy to the dangers we face today with the emergence of artificial intelligence.

Artificial intelligence has provided a slew of benefits, but we cannot turn a blind eye to the dangers it presents if checks and balances are not properly established. Join Kevin Nickelson, Joe Flynn and Anthony DeRouen as we explore Upgrade!

The Friendship Game on Shudder - Director Scooter Corkle

Tonight we speak with Scooter Corkle, director of The Friendship Game, now streaming on Shudder. While the film has struggled under the weight of fan and critic reviews we found many positive aspects to discuss including Peyton List's performance as Zooza. It's a beautifully shot film with excellent sound design and we encourage you to give it a watch -- after listening to our talk!

Sharksploitation.png

Released December 21st

Stephen Scarlata: Writer and Director for Sharksploitation

Sharks, sharks, and more sharks! The dorsal fin'ed apex predator unwittingly changed Hollywood blockbusters as we know them; starting with Jaws (1975) directed by Steven Spielberg and written by Peter Benchley and Carl Gottlieb.

Sharksploitation is an ocean deep (pun intended) documentary of why sharks intrigue us so much. The guests interviewed in Sharksploitation is wildly impressive. We highly recommend watching it on Shudder right now.
