Maleficent (2014)
The grue-crew drag Dave kicking and screaming (or rather snoring, ha!) into watching the latest high profile live-action fantasy offering from the Disney powerhouse,  Maleficent. Angelina Jolie scores big with her incredible performance as the title character. But the entire crew is hard pressed to praise much else, except maybe the cinematography and effects work.


Horror News of the Week for 06/02/2014
Dave Dreher  shares the Horror News of the Week beginning with news of Blumhouse locking in three future dates for a mysterious trilogy of films, perhaps co-chaired by Universal Studios. Let the speculation begin. Scream Factory is launching a  Summer of Fear  celebration this season with a trio of films broadcast online. Rumor mills are buzzing about Edgar Wright moving off of  Ant-Man  and onto the remake of  Kolchak: The Night Stalker. Yeah. Right.  Mr. Mercedes  has the right stuff with a gaggle of familiar faces from previous Stephen King’s work weighing in. The  Friday the 13th  re-remake gets pushed back to November 13th, 2015.
