Under-The-Radar Movie Releases

With streaming apps, television and theatrical there are tons of movie choices for consumers on a daily basis. It would be impossible to be on track to watch it all. I am here to help you suggest some hidden surprises that you might not have a chance to check out. This week the movies in the spotlight are Slaughterhouse Rulez and The 16th Episode.


How would you like to have Simon Pegg as your boarding school teacher? Sounds like a fun, wild and wacky place to be. That’s what happens in Slaughterhouse Rulez, where bloody horror is unleashed in the most comedic tone.

A stellar cast lead by Pegg, Michael Sheen, Margot Robbie and Asa Butterfield delivers on all fronts. If you’re looking for a scary horror that will give you chills and goosebumps, this isn’t the kinda movie to do that. It’s more of a lighthearted horror with more comedy.

Think of Zombieland or Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse as comparisons to this film, but bloodier and with a healthy dose of British humor.
