As SUPERNATURAL viewers know, our heroes are currently involved in fighting none other than God, aka Chuck (Rob Benedict), […]Read On »

Rating: R Stars: Jim Cummings, Riki Lindhome, Chloe East, Robert Forster, Jimmy Tatro, Anna Sward Writer: Jim Cummings Director: Jim Cummings Distributor: Orion Classics Release Date: October 9, 2020 THE WOLF OF SNOW HOLLOW is not, as the title might suggest, a Christmas animal movie or a story about a voracious financial titan in a small community. Instead, directed and written by Jim Cummings, the film lands somewhere between horror, quirky, and occasionally sincere. To say that it feels like an attempt to do a Coen Brothers version of THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS overstates things a bit, but that’s […]Read On »
