|The app that tells you the best time to run and pee during a movie without missing the best scenes.|
So what they did in Freaky was take a horror theme and add a ton of comedy into it. Vince Vaughn nailed it. He was awesome to watch as a girl: the fun they had with the body switching was hilarious.

Movie Grade: A+
|Current & Coming Creative Blumhouse Horror Movies
With Freaky released in all open theaters to great acclaim (our Horror Expert RunPee Sis gave it a rare A+ — see review link above), this is a good time to look at movies past, present, and in production from this prolific, popular, and downright trippy movie house.
Blumhouse is known for producing creative, low-budget horror films (Paranormal Activity, The Purge, Happy Death Day, Get Out, and most recently The Invisible Man). So, whenever they come out with a new title, it’s worth taking note. While Blumhouse certainly produces things other than horror flicks (Whiplash, BlacKKKlansman, and The Normal Heart — all worth your time), for the purposes of this article, we’re just going to focus on the scary stuff. Here’s *everything* you can look forward to soon.
|The decade of 2010s when female protagonists said #MeToo to Science Fiction
Science fiction has long been dominated by male protagonists. But times are a changin’. Some of the most outstanding science fiction of the 2010s featured women as either the hero or as equal partners alongside a male counterpart.Here’s seven recent sci-fi female-led favorites. You’ve probably seen every one of these films, and should add the others to your Watch List, because they’re all excellent stories, gender aside.
|Movie Short Review: Dear Guest
How can an 11 minute film can be so good? It takes longer to brew coffee than watch this gem of a short. We encourage you to give it a quick watch, in the hopes the director will turn this superb start into a full length creepster piece about…well…staying at an AirBnB. 😉
|Indie Short Movie Review – Wives Of The Skies
Since we just reviewed an 11 minute short above, we thought we’d cover another hidden jewel of a short again. “Wives” clocks in at 20 minutes (twice as long as Dear Guest, above), but has a totally different ambience. It’s set in a nostalgic 60’s era of sexy stewardesses, framed by a mockumentary conceit.
It’s wacky, it’s sexist (on purpose), it’s even comedically seedy — and has fun little grace notes that are extremely entertaining to look for.
If you watch Wives as a double feature with Dear Guest, you’ll have some excellent entertainment that takes only a half hour out of your day. Off you go!
|Indie Movie Review – The Tent (no spoilers)
This full length limited release film is not what you expect. You can watch the trailer all night — and actually, most of the movie — and it’s STILL not Birdbox or A Quiet Place. But it’s almost as enjoyable, making creepy use of an inexpensive setting entirely in the woods, and two intense, low-key, and believable performances.
See if you can figure out the secret of what’s stalking the eponymous tent. #ThinkOutsideTheTent
|Weekly progress diary on RunPee:NX
We are rebuilding the RunPee app from scratch using Google Flutter. Here’s a brief report on our weekly progress:I’m still working on the Peeple’s Poll. This is really the last major feature to add to RunPee:NX. Well, this and in-app purchases, but in-app purchases will be cake compared to the Peeples Poll.Good news, you’ll be able to edit your grades in case you make a mistake, or change your mind.
Don’t miss your favorite movie moments because you have to pee or need a snack. Use the RunPee app (Androidor iPhone) when you go to the movies. We have Peetimes for all wide release films every week, including Tenet, Freaky, and Half Brothers , and coming soon Wonder Woman 1984. We have literally thousands of Peetimes -- from classic movies through today's blockbusters. You can also keep up with movie news and reviews on our blog, or by following us on Twitter @RunPee. If there's a new film out there, we've got your bladder covered.
