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.

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 »
