There are over the top gore films. There are over the top horror scores. And then there is the redo of EVIL DEAD, which does its best to live up to its claim of being “the most terrifying film you will ever experience.” While that debate will be left up to those who survive its blood-splattered roller coaster ride with enough severed limbs to make RE-ANIMATOR  look like REBECCA OF SUNNYBROOK FARM, there will be little argument that Roque Banos’ score is the aural equivalent of a raging exclamation mark, it’s bottom colon fashioned into a knife that repeatedly stabs …Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Madison McLaughlin, Adam DiMarco, Megan Danso, Adrian Hough Writer: Adam Glass, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John F. Showalter Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: March 27, 2013 After the emotional and structural intensity of SUPERNATURAL’s previous episode “Goodbye, Stranger,” whatever came next was likely to pale in comparison, but “Freaks and Geeks” wouldn’t be particularly winning no matter where it was placed in the season (and it could have gone practically anywhere). It puts Sam (Jared Padalecki) and especially Dean (Jensen Ackles) in the role of worried surrogate dads/big brothers …Read On »
