The Walking Dead: Recap of Episode 4.04 – Indifference



Post Thumb:


The Walking Dead: Recap of Episode 4.04 - IndifferenceWow, after the bombshell from Carol last week, we had no idea where this show would be heading to next. Who knew a simple “Yes” could have such an impact? Talk about an evolution of character! Episode 4.04 “Indifference” was written by Matt Negrete and directed by Tricia Brock.

SPOILER ALERT: Do not read any further if you haven’t watched the episode yet. This is a recap with specific details from this episode. Continue only if you have already watched it.

While Rick was prepping for a food and medicine run, Carol went to see a hopeful Lizzy. At the same time, Rick was imagining how Carol killed the sickly Karen, dragged her body out to the yard and burned the corpses. Carol urged Lizzy to protect herself and her sister and not be afraid to kill. When Rick found a knife missing from a set, we found that Carol had given it to Lizzy. When Lizzy accidentally called Carol mom, she scolded Lizzy to not call her that again. Carol also showed Lizzy how not to be afraid and fight through the fear. “And then one day, you just change. We all change.” Was that what happened to Carol?

When we came back from commercial break, Tyreese washed the blood and guts off his shirt while the others planned their next steps.

Rick and Carol drove without talking for a while. Carol described why she did what she did. “I had to try. Somebody had to,” said Carol. Rick was skeptical but kept mostly quiet.

During the search in the woods, Daryl continue to give Michonne a hard time for not staying with the group.

Rick and Carol parked in a suburban neighborhood and started their search for medicine and food.

Daryl and the group found an abandoned car and tried to hot-wire it but they needed a new battery. They then tried to clear the overgrowth off a building with Tyreese taking out his frustration while clearing a path. And then they were attacked by walkers reaching out at them. With Michonne’s katana action, they mostly got rid of these walkers but at one point, Tyreese refused to let go of his attacking walker. Why did he not let go, Michonne asked.

Rick and Carol entered an abandoned house. As they started to explore, Carol heard a walker coming down from upstairs. When the walker tripped and fell down the stairs, Rick pulled Carol to safety. After getting her bearings back, Carol promptly knifed the fallen walker in the brain while Rick observed. More sounds came from upstairs and Rick readied his gun as the upstairs door creaked open and a couple of humans came out offering them fruit.

The two people, Sam and Ana, were in the greenhouse nearby that had fruit before they were chased here by the walkers. When Sam complained about his dislocated shoulder, Carol took the reins to reset his shoulder. Rick observed from the back and was impressed by Carol’s taking charge.

Daryl and Bob found a car battery while Tyreese and Michonne continue to clear the fallen tree from the car. Michonne lectured him about anger. “Anger makes you stupid.” She was angry about the Governor but not any longer, although she still couldn’t explain why she kept going after him.

While Rick and Carol were cleaning up the house of food and medicine, Sam and Ana wanted to join them back at the prison. They wanted to help and Carol suggested they scope out the neighborhood for more supplies even though while Rick was apprehensive about it, he finally agreed.

Watching Daryl fixing the car, Bob confessed his guilt about causing the accident at the Big Spot supermarket when Zack got killed. He had a drinking problem and tried to stop himself with the bottle when the shelf came down, causing the mayhem. After getting the car to start, Daryl then told Bob that what happened at the supermarket was an accident and wasn’t anyone’s fault.

Raiding another house’s medicine cabinet, Rick asked Carol if they did the right thing to let Sam and Ana join them. Carol was hopeful about them. Then Carol confronted Rick to talk about what she did. While Rick was more driven by morals, Carol was more pragmatic. “You don’t have to like what I did, Rick, I don’t. You just accept it.” Wow, Melissa McBride is killing it this episode as Carol!

Daryl and the group got to the veterinarian school and started their search inside.

When Rick asked Carol how she knew how to reset a dislocated shoulder, she said she learned it herself online so she could fix herself up when she was a battered wife. Picking tomatoes, they talked about their losses. She had accepted Sophia’s death while Rick talked about still expecting Lori to be there in the morning next to him. Another powerful scene by Carol and Rick.

Then they came upon Ana’s body being devoured by walkers. Carol just accepted it and suggested they go find Sam.

After collecting everything they came for, Daryl and the group started to leave when they were chased by walkers.

Back at the first house, Rick and Carol waited for Sam. Though Rick wanted to wait a little longer, Carol knew they couldn’t wait any longer and they had to go. “It was a nice watch,” she said, about the timepiece Rick had given Sam when they parted.

The group at the school continued to fight their way out when Bob fell and got his pack grabbed by the walkers. When he refused to let go, the group helped to rescue him and his pack. That was when they saw the alcohol inside. “It’s for when it gets quiet,” said Bob. Daryl would have none of that but let Bob keep the alcohol, and they marched off.

After packing up the car, Rick finally confronted Carol. That exchange, while not intense, sure packed a wallop. Recapping it would not do it justice. Go watch it. At the end, Rick dropped Carol’s pack on the ground.

Michonne took over driving the group back and agreed with Daryl, she didn’t need to go looking for the Governor anymore. He approved.

Rick helped Carol pack her own car and she gave him her watch before she drove off on her own.

Wow, is that the end of Carol? Melissa McBride is definitely the performer of the week in this episode.

Alien: Covenant’s Carmen Ejogo Joins True Detective Season 3



“From the dusty mesa her looming shadow grows…”

The first season of HBO’s “True Detective” was one of the best seasons ever put on a TV screen. Hands down. The second season was another story altogether. While not a complete waste of time (Colin Farrell owed) the season was basically merely ‘meh’.

But what about “True Detective” season 3?

Well, a few months back it was announced that the third season had been greenlit by HBO, with creator Nic Pizzolatto returning to pen the series and director Jeremy Saulnier (Green Room) taking the helm of the episodes.

Today we have news that Carmen Ejogo – who you may recognize Ejogo from such recent fright flicks as It Comes at Night, Alien: Covenant, and The Purge: Anarchy – will be joining the previously announced Mahershala Ali (Moonlight) for Season 3.

Ejogo will play the female lead, Amelia Reardon, who THR describes as “an Arkansas schoolteacher with a connection to two missing children in 1980.”

Nice Pizzolatto will serve as showrunner and direct alongside Jeremy Saulnier. Executive producers include Pizzolatto, Saulnier, Scott Stephens and season one stars Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey as well as original director Cary Joji Fukunaga. Steve Golin, Bard Dorros and Richard Brown are also credited as exec producers.


A macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks and a mystery that deepens over decades and plays out in three separate time periods.

Danielle Harris Tried to Get Jamie Lloyd into New Halloween Movie



One of the top films all of us are looking forward to the most here at Dread Central is Blumhouse’s upcoming sequel/reboot thing to John Carpenter’s Halloween.

The new Halloween (2018) film is written by Danny McBride and David Gordon Green and is all set to be directed by Green this year. Recently we learned that original Halloween star Jamie Lee Curtis was going to be returning to the new film.

Not only that, but Curtis’ classic character Laurie Strode would have a daughter… played by Judy Greer. But what about Danielle Harris?

After all, Harris was the star of Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers and Halloween 5: The Curse of Michael Myers. Let alone, she had a starring role in both Rob Zombie’s remake and it’s sequel. So how about the new film?

Turns out Harris tried to get her character Jamie Llyod (aka the daughter of Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode) from Halloween 4 and 5 into the new film… but she was turned down by Blumhouse and the new creative team. That sucks.

Harris was pretty bummed about the whole deal and took to Facebook recently to clear the air. You can check out quotes from her video, along with the video itself, below.

After that make sure to hit us up and let us know how much you would have liked to see Harris return to Halloween in the comments below or on social media!

“What I am bummed about is… [Laurie] has a daughter,” Harris says. “I was okay with it when she had a son… but they’re saying it’s the last one and… she has a daughter. And it’s not Jamie. It’s just kind of a bummer, I guess. I think somebody had said, it wouldn’t have hurt the movie to have Jamie reunited with [Laurie]. But that didn’t happen.”

“We did put in a call, thought it’d be kinda cool even just to have a little flashback…” She continues. “They were not interested. So. I tried.”

Blumhouse’s Halloween hits theaters October 19, 2018.

Through the Cracks – Trick or Treat (1986) Review



Starring Marc Price, Tony Fields, Lisa Orgolini, Glen Morgan, Gene Simmons, and Ozzy Osbourne

Directed by Charles Martin Smith

I have been a horror fan for more than half of my life at this point. Meaning I have seen most of the quality horror offerings under the sun. But that said, every once in awhile a classic sneaks past so we wanted to create this “Through the Cracks” review section for such films.

Case in point, I had never seen the Halloween horror flick Trick or Treat until last night. I know, right? How the hell did that happen? But these things do happen and so for everyone that has seen the flick a million times, this will be a review of the movie from a super horror fan that – at the age of 33 – is seeing Trick or Treat for the very first time.

Now let’s get to it.

First off you have to love the movie’s plot. Mixing horror and heavy metal seems like a given, yet preciously few films Frankenstein these two great tastes together.

Like many of you out there, I am a big metal fan as well as a big horror fan. The two seem to go together like chocolate and peanut butter. Or Jason and horny campers.

I dig bands like Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, and even those hair metal bands (Dokken forever!) and I’m well aware of the legends surrounding playing these records backward.

Off the top of my head, the only other flick that combines the two to this degree is the (relatively) recent horror-comedy Deathgasm. I say more horror-metal flicks! Or should we call it Metal-Horror? Yeah, that’s a much more metal title.

It only makes sense that someone, somewhere would take the idea of “What if Ozzy Osbourne really was evil and came back from the dead (you know, if he had passed away during his heyday) to torment a loner fan?” Great premise for a movie!

And Trick or Treat delivers on the promise of this premise in spades. Sammi Curr is an epic hybrid of the best of the best metal frontmen and his resurrection via speaker is one of the great horror birthing scenes I have seen in all my years.

Add to that the film feels like a lost entry in the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. More specifically the film feels like it would fit snugly in between two of my favorite entries in that series, Dream Warriors and The Dream Master.

This movie is 80’s as all f*ck and I loved every minute of it.

And speaking of how this film brought other minor classics to the forefront of my brain, let’s talk about the film’s central villain, Sammi Curr. This guy looks like he could share an epic horror band with the likes of Mary Lou from Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night II and the Drill Killer rocker from Slumber Party Massacre Part II.

Picture that band for a moment and tell me they aren’t currently playing the most epic set in Hell as we speak. I say let’s see an Avengers-style series of films based on these minor horror icons sharing the stage and touring the country’s high school proms!

In the end Trick or Treat has more than it’s fair share of issues. Sammi Curr doesn’t enter the film until much too late and is dispatched way too easily. Water? Really? That’s it?

That said, the film is still a blast as director Charles Martin Smith keeps the movie rocking like an 80’s music video with highlights being Sammi’s rock show massacre at the prom and his final assault on our hero teens in the family bathroom.

Rockstar lighting for days.

Even though the film has issues (zero blood, a rushed ending) none of that mattered much to this horror hound as the film was filled to the brim with striking horror/metal imagery and a killer soundtrack via Fastway and composer Christopher Young.

Plus you’ve got to love the cameos by Gene Simmons (boy, his character just dropped right out of the movie, huh?) and Ozzy Osbourne as a mad-as-hell Preacher that isn’t going to take any more of this devil music. P.S. Watch for the post-credits tag.

More than a few of my closest horror buddies have this film placed high on their annual Halloween must-watch lists. And after (finally) viewing the film for myself, I think I just may have to add the film to mine as well. Preferably on VHS.

Trick or Treat is an 80’s horror classic. If you dig films like Popcornand if you put the film off like I did, remedy that tonight and slap a copy in the old VHS/DVD player.

Just don’t play it backward… God knows what could happen.

All said and done, I enjoyed the hell out of my first viewing of Trick or Treat. But what do YOU think of the film? Make sure to hit us up and let us know below or on social media!

Now bring on Trick or Treat 2: The Prom Band from Hell, featuring Sammi Curr, Mary Lou Maloney, and Atanas Ilitch’s Driller Killer from Slumber Party Massacre Part II!

  • Trick or Treat (1986) 3.5


Charles Martin Smith’s Trick or Treat is a sure-fire Halloween treat for fans of 80’s horror flicks, as well as fans of heavy metal music.
