Any One Of Us

We like to think we’re invincible, but the truth is the human body, for all the damage it can take, can be extremely fragile. One fall, a twist in the wrong direction, a car accident, even just walking down the street when a tree falls on you, can completely change the way your body functions … Continued

Pet Sematary

In 1983 Stephen King released the novel Pet Sematary. He wrote it years prior but thinking it was too dark, put it off for a while. When the book, which King claims as the one that frightens him the most, finally saw the light it proved a huge success. Six years later, the Mary Lambert … Continued

Brainiac: Transmissions After Zero

What comes to mind when I say Dayton, Ohio? If you are a football fan, probably Ohio State’s Buckeye football team. Otherwise, visions of mountains and Lake Eerie probably danced in your head. I am willing to bet that excluding a handful of people, Ohio being home to one of the most innovative and fast-rising … Continued

90 Feet From Home

There is not a shortage of films touching upon the theme of the “sins of our fathers.” This idea that the tragic baggage of our family is passed along from one generation to the next. In Brett Bentman’s 90 Feet From Home, he tells the story of Scott and Thomas Conway as they struggle to … Continued

Extra Ordinary

The reason there seems to be a plethora of horror-comedies is that the set up for both share a number of similarities. First comes a normal situation, followed by something that isn’t quite right, then the punchline, or scare, lands. Interestingly, there is less of a pervasive presence of a full-blown comedy that uses horror … Continued

Building The American Dream

Let’s face it, since 2016; we have been in a period of massive political upheaval. Crazy incidents happen by the day if not the hour. Ordinances and laws that once existed to protect the more vulnerable amongst us have been rescinded. Immigrants are under attack. I don’t know if you recall your elementary school history … Continued

Kathy Griffin: A Hell Of A Story

Kathy Griffin was the first ever comedian to have four distinct televised specials in the same year. Aside from her prominent acting roles, she had the show My Life On The D-List for five years on Bravo. As can be surmised based on the title of her hit program, she never entirely made the jump … Continued

Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase

A bit of an outsider struggling to fit into her new surroundings, Nancy and her pals set out to solve a mystery, make new friends, and establish their place in the community. Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase opens with a decidedly modern Nancy (Sophia Lillis) skateboarding through her new neighborhood. She and her father … Continued

Who Let The Dogs Out

When I heard someone made a documentary about the song Who Let The Dogs Out? I had the same reaction as you probably just did. I laughed out loud at the absurdity of it and then attempted to remember if I knew anyone who actually liked the song. Perhaps most importantly, this thought ran through … Continued
