CW: Racism, Sexual Assault, Suicide It’s Our Birthday Week on Pod Sematary! Chris & Kelsey celebrate the anniversaries of their births by watching two more birthday-themed horror flicks. Well, at least one of them is a horror movie… by the end. The Classic Film: Sweet Sixteen (1983) "Teenager Melissa moves into a small town filled with racial prejudice and bullying, and each time she meets up with one of the boys in town, they end up murdered - but who is the killer?” (IMDb.com). Sweet Sixteen has all the hallmarks of an awful slasher, but the irresistible relationships and an unbelievably campy theme song save it from the garbage abyss. The Modern Film: Happy Death Day 2U (2019) "Tree Gelbman discovers that dying over and over was surprisingly easier than the dangers that lie ahead” (IMDb.com). It only took two movies for this series to forget it was supposed to be horror. The renewed focus on sci-fi and low-hanging jokes turn a concept that is begging to be compelling into a sloppy disappointment. Get more at podsematary.com!
