THE HAUNTING OF ALICE D | © 2016 RLJ Entertainment

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 »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Emily Swallow, Luciana Carro, Jim Thorburn, Venus Terzo, Zoe Fraser Writers: Eric Charmelo & Nicole Snyder, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Phil Sgriccia Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: January 27, 2016 The SUPERNATURAL Season 11 episode “Love Hurts” is and isn’t a standalone episode. 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 »

Ron Perlman and Alona Tal in HAND OF GOD | ©2015 Amazon Studios

In HAND OF GOD, which premiered its entire ten-episode first season on Amazon Prime September 4, Ron Perlman stars as Judge Pernell Harris.

Movie/VoD Review: AVENGED

Cast: Amanda Adrienne, Tom Ardavany, Ronnie Gene Blevins, Brionne Davis, Ed Fletcher, Jason Gurvitz Writer: Michael S. Ojeda Director: Michael S. Ojeda Distributor: Uncork’d Entertainment Rating: Not Rated AVENGED is like a supernatural I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE, if that film has a deaf woman that actually dies and begins to rot on her way to killing the men that did her wrong. Oh and if they added a contrived romance plotline that never really takes off during the course of the movie. Zoe (Amanda Adrienne), a deaf girl with a boyfriend that lives far away, decides to go visit […]Read On »

On SUPERNATURAL, now in its tenth(!) season on the CW, Tuesdays at 9 PM, a lot of weird stuff happens as brothers Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) continue to hunt monsters and grapple with demons, angels and you-name-its. However, one of the stranger things within this strange universe, created by Eric Kripke, was the character of Chuck Shurley, pen name Carver Edlund, played by Rob Benedict.
