Film Review: Dracula UntoldÂ (2014)
Universal begins its attempt to wrangle its stable of “monsters” into a shared property, a share franchise, much like The Avengers, with the release of Dracula Untold. The grue-crew have been dreading this film for sometime, even jokingly labeling the film Dracula Unseen. Aside from Dave, who may have been literally offended by the film, the reviews are surprising positive but with reservations. Horror? No, not at all. Action film? Yeah, Doc and Thomas even suggest it is closer to a superhero film. Twists and turns, baby.
What Have You Been Watching: The Walking Dead Season 5
Terminus, oh, my. That story is continued in the season 5 premiere of The Walking Dead in surprising and exciting ways. With 17 million plus viewers, The Walking Dead kills its start this year with gore, action and powerful emotion. And a surprise or three. Yes, even Thomas was seduced into watching this episode.
What Have You Been Watching: Busan International Film Festival
Joseph Perry returns as the HNR man-on-the-street, or better yet man-abroad, as he provides the first report from the popular Busan International Film Festival. The films covered this week areÂ Live TV from South Korea and Ghost Rituals from Malaysia.
Film Review: Extraterrestrial (2014)
Doc admits to being a fan of The Vicious Brothers, the directing team behind Grave Encounters. They are back with a sci-fi horror mash up with aliens and cabin in the woods blend of action, shocks, gore and humor. The film is called Extraterrestrial featuring the ever popular Michael Ironside in a cameo/supporting role. The film gets a seal of approval from The Black Saint.
