Reviews of “Sweetheart” and “Midnight Kiss” on Gruesome Magazine 97

This week, the Grue-Crew takes an unintentional last look at two Blumhouse offerings for 2019. The first film this week, INTO THE DARK: MIDNIGHT KISS from director Carter Smith, examines the modern slasher film set against the celebration of New Year’s Eve. The second film, SWEETHEART from director J.D. Dillard, provides a fresh look at the modern monster movie as its heroine has washed ashore a deserted island – all alone, except for a horrific sea creature.

Doc Rotten from Horror News Radio. Jeff Mohr from Decades of Horror: The Classic Era. And Crystal Cleveland, the Livin6Dead6irl from Decades of Horror: 1980s share their thoughts about this week’s awesome collection of streaming horror films. Joining the crew this week is Horror News Radio co-host, Dave Dreher!
