Rating: Unrated Stars: Emily Beecham, Ben Whishaw, Kerry Fox, Kit Connor, Lindsay Duncan Writers: Jessica Hausner and Geraldine Bajard Director: Jessica Hausner Distributor: Magnolia Pictures Release Date: December 6, 2019 LITTLE JOE, from its logline, sounds like it’s going to be a science-bound riff on LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS. In the loosest sense, it is, in that it’s about a plant that wants to take over the world by influencing humans. LITTLE JOE winds up more closely resembling INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS, with people beginning to act not quite like themselves. Under Jessica Hausner’s direction, LITTLE JOE is never […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Jim Beaver, Misha Collins, Mark Pellegrino, Kim Rhodes, Cameron Bancroft, Benito Martinez Writer: Ben Edlund, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Guy Bee Network: The CW Original Telecast: September 30, 2011 The SUPERNATURAL episode “Hello, Cruel World” has a lot to recommend it.
