Stars: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, Meghan Ory Writer: Jane Espenson Director: Ralph Hemecker Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: March 10, 2013 I have been saying since last season that I thought Cora (Barbara Hershey), “The Miller’s Daughter,” was, in fact, that miller’s daughter – you know, the one that got caught up in the original Rumpelstiltskin story, when her father bragged that she could spin straw into gold. Well, I was right and ONCE UPON A TIME has worked its magical twist once again, and very nicely turned that story on its ear in one intense episode. However, I […]Read On »

Dimension Films presented the premiere of SCARY MOVIE V on April 11th at the Cinerama Dome, Hollywood. It was a very crowded carpet full of electronic press and photographers, and they put photographers in two sections. Landing up standing by the glass doors to the theater a lot of the stars did not stop or were in a hurry to get inside, so most of us in that section shot whomever we could get to stop. Walking into the theaters were the stars of the movie, which included: Ashley Tisdale, Simon Rex, Heather Locklear, Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan, Jerry O’Connell, […]Read On »

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 »

The problem is, once you go down a dark road like […]Read On »

In the new Rob Zombie directed horror film THE LORDS OF SALEM (which is in theaters now), Salem, MA radio d.j. Heidi, played by Zombie’s real-life wife Sheri Moon Zombie, is sent a record with a strange musical riff that is tied to the famed Salem witches, who seem to be reaching from beyond the grave to further their original goals. At a small press conference, Zombie talks about his new movie. On how he came up with the storyline for THE LORDS OF SALEM… “The storyline came to me about seven years ago,” says Zombie. “I was just reading […]Read On »

Even cooler, the sleek design has 2 sliding back doors (more akin to a van) so it’s easier for the passenger’s to get […]Read On »

Miller & Lindsey Allen Director: Michael Offer Network: The CW, airs Wednesday Nights Original Telecast: April 3, 2013 This week’s episode of ARROW doesn’t bludgeon us with unrelenting bleakness the way last week’s did.  In fact, “Unfinished Business” is a fairly slight episode overall, and most of it doesn’t leave much of an impression.  But one thing it did do quite well is continue the difficult conversation it began earlier about the appropriate […]Read On »
