Meet the Bisaan, a “cicada-based” species that, like the locust, comes along infrequently but wreaks devastation when it does. There’s a nice little fakeout at the beginning of “The Chitters.” We’re on the outskirts of a small town in Colorado, where we meet 12-year-old Jesse (Valin Shinyei) […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark A. Sheppard, Weronika Rosati, Grant Harvey, Darren Dolynski Writer: Robert Berens, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John Badham Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: February 17, 2016 It had to happen sometime. Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) were bound to realize at some point that their angel friend Castiel (Misha Collins) is actually being occupied by Lucifer. Sooner or later, any show that has time travel has to have a story set on a U.S. Navy submarine during WWII, so SUPERNATURAL Season 11 does that as […]Read On »

Cast: Kane Hodder, Juan Riedinger, Al Snow, Megan Hensley, Aaron Massey, Kristina Page, Jessica Sonneborn Writer: Jessica Sonneborn Director: Jessica Sonneborn Distributor: RLJ Entertainment If you are expecting one of those exorcism flicks where a poor woman gets possessed by a demon and turns her head and vomits all over her loved ones and floats in the air, this ain’t it. Instead THE HAUNTING OF ALICE D should have been called THE HAUNTING BY ALICE D, because the Alice in question terrorizes a group of friends and their hired help (read hookers) in an old mansion that used to be […]Read On »

The creature of the week here and how it operates is essential in getting Dean (Jensen Ackles) to open up to brother Sam (Jared Padalecki) about his bond with God’s sister Amara (Emily Swallow). This is good. The mechanism of revelation, however, requires a fairly complicated […]Read On »
