SALINGER: A LIFE by Kenneth Slawenski Director: Danny Strong Distributor: IFC Release Date: September 8, 2017  Writing is a solitary activity that, unlike some others (bicycling, mountain climbing, even painting), is extremely difficult to make watchable.

ONE DARK NIGHT Blu-ray | ©2017 Code Red

Stars: Meg Tilly, Melissa Newman, Robin Evans, Donald Hotton, Adam West Writers: Tom McLoughlin, Michael Hawes Director: Tom McLoughlin Distributor: Code Red Suggested Retail Price: $17.99 It’s strange that we continue to find solace in low-budget horror films from the 1980s – particularly the early part of that decade. Horror at that time not only saw a rise in the slasher genre, but also every other kind of subgenre (creature, supernatural, splatter).
