This is a place where we gather up only the finest pieces of pop culture. These are the things so genius and wonderful we simply can’t ever stop thinking about them, new or old, popular or waiting to be discovered. Here is what you should check out this April Fool’s day.
Movie: “Birdemic: Shock and Terror”
Inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds,” this classic cult film written and directed by James Nguyen from 2010 follows Rod, a software salesman, as an invasion of eagles and vultures destroys Silicon Valley. This disaster film also contains a moving love story between Rod and Nathalie as they grow closer despite impending doom.
Movie: “Troll 2”
This 1990 horror film shows the story of a family’s vacation to Nilbog, a rural American town infested by goblins. This thrilling film leaves the viewer on edge; will the goblins attack our all- American family protagonists? Watch the film to find out.
Although Thanksgiving is eight months away, “ThanksKilling” is never out of season. This scandalous 2008 film features a murderous demonic turkey and plenty of violence. However, the film also incorporates an aspect of humor as well. If you have a craving for a turkey horror film, I would recommend this one.
Television Show: “Insatiable”
Despite the show’s controversial subject matter involving weight loss and bullying, “Insatiable” is an interesting show that follows high school student Patty Bladell as she hopes to become a beauty pageant competitor. The show involves a series of twists and scandals that are completely unexpected and not necessarily developed, so the viewer never knows quite what to expect.
Song: “Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day”
This country song was released by Luke Bryan in 2016. “Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day” explores Bryan’s love of the wild and his “country boy” identity. This song illustrates the importance of self-love and acceptance, especially between “country” individuals.
Song: “Look What You Made Me Do”
This Taylor Swift song from 2017 analyzes the things she has done and the ways she has been criticized throughout her career. It also establishes Taylor as a separate entity from her former self, declaring that the “old Taylor… is dead.”
