Stars: Michael Berryman, Tamara Stafford, John Bloom, John Laughlin, Janus Blythe Writer: Wes Craven Director: Wes Craven Distributor: Arrow Video Suggested Retail Price: $34.99 Filmed before Wes Craven’s seminal 1984 classic A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET and released in the U.S. a year later, THE HILLS HAVE EYES PART 2 is an obvious cash grab by all involved serving as a follow-up to Craven’s own 1977 cult hit. While some of the inventiveness Craven displayed in ELM STREET is missing here, there is some considerable charm to THE HILLS HAVE EYES PART 2 in both its coherent and incoherent attempts […]Read On »

When is a show cancelled, but not cancelled? That’s been the mystery behind the Christian Slater comedy BREAKING IN that did pretty good during midseason this year on Fox after AMERICAN IDOL. It wasn’t enough for it to get an official Season 2 renewal, but in recent months, there’s been movement that could bring the series back. Recent extensions on cast contracts have showed that the show has a little bit life left in it, and today at the Summer 2011 Television Critics Association Fox session, Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly explained that the show could get an official last […]Read On »

While one of our main characters, Annie (Becky Newton) is off on maternity leave while carrying her sister’s child, Annie’s waitress colleague Jodie (Michelle Trachtenberg) has made the big leap, giving up her own […]Read On »

Fox’s half-hour comedy BREAKING IN, trying out a Tuesday slot tonight after a run Wednesdays at 9:30 PM (even though it was canceled last week by Fox), concerns a high-tech security firm that is hired by various companies to evaluate weak points by, per the title, breaking in wherever it can be done. Bret Harrison plays Cameron Price, the firm’s newest hire, who has been more or less blackmailed into taking the gig by the firm’s mysterious boss Oz, played by Christian Slater. In some ways, Cameron and his situation don’t appear too far removed from Portland, Oregon native Harrison’s […]Read On »
