Stars: Paul Le Mat, Catherine Hicks, Stephen McHattie, Wilford Brimley, Peter Billingsley, Edward Herrmann Writer: Richard Rothstein Director: Dick Richards Distributor: Scream! Factory Suggested Retail Price: $26.99 Scream! Factory is digging deep for great horror movie titles that haven’t been given a proper DVD or Blu-ray release and that continues with this month’s entry DEATH VALLEY from 1982. The notable thing about this movie was that it features Peter Billingsley a year before he made a big splash as Ralphie in the classic A CHRISTMAS STORY. Here, Ralphie, errr, Billy, doesn’t even have to worry about a BB gun, he […]Read On »

Cast: Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia, Sam Neill, Parminder Nagra, Jonny Coyne, Robert Forster Writers: Toni Graphia Director:  Brad Turner Network: Fox, airs Mondays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: Feb. 20, 2012 I’m beginning to doubt the longevity of ALCATRAZ. This isn’t a show like FRINGE or SUPERNATURAL that can give us compelling and cool experiments and weird s*** happening all the time in a non-mythology story or even two or three episodes that will stand alone and we’ll be happy. The whole premise of the show is finding out why these inmates have traveled through time and are re-appearing and […]Read On »

One of the most ambitious (and utterly different) series to air this season is the new ABC thriller THE RIVER which comes from PARANORMAL ACTIVITY creator Oren Peli and executive producer Steven Spielberg. The series follows a documentary crew going down the Amazon River to search for a missing in action TV personality adventurer. What they find could very well be not of this earth. At today’s ABC TCA panel, ABC Entertainment Group President Paul Lee says the faux documentary series works perfectly as an eight episode first season. “Early on when we were about to pick it up, I […]Read On »

His wife has left him and there’s a serial killer running around town who may be targeting him next. When a mysterious man ends up dead on his doorstep, […]Read On »
