As a kid, one of my favorite rituals was wandering the horror section of the video store in my hometown.Naturally, my eyes were drawn to the most outlandish covers even though the movies themselves failed to deliver on the glorious box art.
Maximum Overdrive. What else is there to say? Well, I suppose I could explain how I came to find this movie and why I love it. So, grab a drink—just not from a vending machine—and ignore the jingling of that ice cream truck.
Miracle Mile, the second feature from director Steve De Jarnatt, only hit my radar a few years back. That's unfortunate because this 1988 suspense thriller seems tailor-made for me.
Sweet Virginia, the second feature film from director Jamie M. Dagg, caught my attention shortly after its release in 2017. The trailer—which you can check out below—drew me in immediately. Then again, I'm a sucker for indie films with strong stories and characters.
