The Month in Horror Releases: April

First of all, I hope everyone reading this is staying happy and healthy during these dark days—I know that I, myself, have been struggling to stay motivated and positive at a time like this. Thankfully, we have the movies to escape to, which is needed now more than ever. So with that being said, let’s take a look at what April has to offer. Because so many theatrical releases are being canceled, I will only focus on the VOD releases going forward. This will be a great excuse to dig into some of the lesser known films that release each month, so let’s take a look!

  1. Yeah man, hope you’re holding up out there as OK as possible! Such a weird fucking time right now.

    Looking forward to We Summon the Darkness, if for no other reason than to see Johnny Knoxville again! Haha he’s actually still finding work. That’s cool to see

    1. Dude no doubt! Yeah I’m hanging in there (for now anyway). Agreed on We Summon the Darkness; that movie has been delayed so many times so I’ve been looking forward to it for a minute.

      1. Are you in a state where there is mandatory lockdown or is one of those where it’s not being taken as serious? I love how every state in the union has their own different agenda. This is why we’re fucked!

      2. Unfortunately, I am in Utah (one of the very few remaining states who don’t seem to give a shit about this pandemic). That has been frustrating. People still going about their business as if nothing is happening. I agree. We’re totally fucked! lol
