Rating: PG-13 Stars: Miranda Cosgrove, Donal Logue, Austin Butler, Tom Sizemore, Jenessa Grant, Michael Luckett Writer: Jason Juravic Director: Adam Massey Distributor: Sony Pictures Home Entertainment Release Date: February 24, 2015 The new release THE INTRUDERS, not to be confused with either 2012’s feature INTRUDERS or 2014’s BBC series INTRUDERS, is a fairly generic PG-13 thriller. It’s not a worst-case scenario of the form, by any means, but it steadfastly fails to gain traction as it goes along. College student Rose Halshford (Miranda Cosgrove), on a leave of absence from study, is moved by her architect father Jerry (Donal Logue) […]Read On »

In ABC’s RESURRECTION, which is running its eight-episode first season Sundays at 9 PM, a small Missouri town experiences an influx of returnees – from the dead.

The first returnee is Jacob Langston (Landon Gimenez), an eight-year-old boy who wakes up in rural China. Getting him home brings U.S. agent J. Martin Bellamy (Omar Epps) into the picture.
