Searching for a missing student, two private investigators break into his house and find a collection of VHS tapes. Viewing the horrific contents of each cassette, they realize there may be dark motives behind the student’s disappearance. Starring: Lawrence Michael Levine, and Kelsy Abbott Directed by: Simon Barrett, Jason Eisener, Gareth Evans, Gregg Hale, Eduardo Sanchez, Timo Tjahjanto, and Adam Wingard Written by: Timo Tjahjanto, Brad Miska, Simon Barrett, John Davies, Jason Eisener, Gareth Evans, Jamie Nash, and Eduardo Sanchez   To start off, it’s surprising that V/H/S/2 was made because V/H/S wasn’t that great. It has its moments here and there, but nothing stands out about it. The worse thing about it is the story that sets up the viewing of the cassettes. It didn’t seem to make sense, nor be a good reason for the cassettes to be shown.   With that being said, obviously the first thing that needs improvement on in the sequel is the set up story. Whi

My Thoughts on True Blood Season 6 Episode 7

  Terry’s death was an extremely depressing moment in episode 6. That depression carried over to episode 7. It had such an affect on this episode that I’m not sure why they didn’t call it “Depression and Sex.” I’ll get to the sex part later. So here are my thoughts on episode 7, “Depression and,” no sorry I mean, “In the Evening.”   I think the most depressing moment of the night was during the previews for the next episode when they mentioned there were 3 episodes left. I totally forgot that after last season they said there would only be 10 episodes this season. Talk about sucking! Not only does that suck, but also that throws off my whole thing about episode 6 being a huge episode. Ugh, I hate when True Blood messes with me.   All right, enough about my depression, and onto the real depressing moments. Not that I care about her, but the scene where Sarah finds the Gov’s head started the string of sad moments. Besides for the fact that she was talking to a head, it see

My Thoughts on True Blood Season 6 Episode 6

  As you may know, I always look for episode 6 as being a big episode in a 12-episode season. Big things need to happen. Events should change the direction of the rest of the season. There should be surprises, and maybe even some depressing moments. While I’m not sure this was the biggest 6 th episode it certainly had a lot of these things. So lets take a look at episode 6, “Don’t You Feel Me?”   Unfortunately I have to start of with the most depressing moment of the episode… Terry’s death. I’ve been saying I’m not sure where Arlene and his storyline is headed, and maybe the writers weren’t either. That sometimes gets a character killed off. Credit Holly for coming up for what seemed like a good idea. Too bad they didn’t count on Terry having someone else kill him. If only Arlene would have talked to him first. I was kind of surprised how no one really tried to save him. They just let him pass away. A moment of silence for a good man….   Onto Sam’s storyline, which is a


Paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren work to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in their farmhouse. Forced to confront powerful entity, the Warrens find themselves caught in the most terrifying case of their lives. Starring: Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga, Ron Livingston, and Lili Taylor Directed by: James Wan Written by: Chad Hayes, and Carey Hayes   It’s easy to scare the average movie fan, but when you hear hardcore horror fans talk about how scary “The Conjuring” is it sets the bar high. Not that the bar wasn’t high enough for James Wan after “Insidious,” a movie that actually had me jumping out of my seat. On top of that, throw in talks of “The Conjuring 2” before this one is even released. That is just crazy! So does the “The Conjuring” live up to the high expectations?   Well it really didn’t take long to meet those expectations. How could it do it so fast? The answer… Annabelle. The movie opens about two years before the events at

My Thoughts on True Blood Season 6 Episode 5

   I think it’s fair to say Bill and Eric’s plans that I’ve been talking about have official blown up, and they have moved on. I’m not sure Eric has a plan anymore. As for Bill, well he helped answer a big question I had after last week’s episode. So here are my thoughts on those things, and more from episode 5, “Fuck the Pain Away.”   First, that has to be one of the best titles for a True Blood episode yet. Yes, a large part of that is because it has “Fuck” in the title. I can’t help it, how many shows can get away with putting that in an episode’s title. Ok, time to grow up, and move on.   So the question I was referring to was how would they bring Bill, and Warlow together when they have yet to cross path. Well we saw Bill answer that when he showed up at Sookie’s house, and commanded Warlow away. I knew Sookie wasn’t going to do anything to him. She should have gone with my plan.   There were a few interesting that happened in that brief opening. One was how Sooki


As Nell Sweetzer tries to build a new life after the events of the first movie, the evil force that once possessed her returns with an even more horrific plan. Stars: Ashley Bell, Julia Garner, and Spencer Treat Clark Directed by: Ed Gass-Donnelly Written by: Damien Chazelle, and Ed Gass-Donnelly     Let me start by saying I wasn't a fan of the original. It just wasn't as scary as they made it seem, especially after giving away everything in the previews. It seemed like they saved most of the action for the end of the movie. Speaking of the ending, the sudden conclusion didn't do much for me either. However, the story and acting weren’t too bad, and it was a good attempt at a found footage movie.   With that said, making a sequel just didn’t seem necessary. After watching the sequel, it proved me right. Nothing happens that is so important that audiences have to see it. The story is pretty simple. Nell (Ashley Bell) thinks she's getting ove

My Thoughts On True Blood Season 6 Episode 4

  Last week I ended by talking about the Bill and Eric’s plans to stop the Governor. Both were in motion this week, and both hit speed bumps. It’s good to see things don’t always go as planned even for the almighty vampires. So lets take a look at these plans, and more with my thoughts on episode 4, “At Last.”   Speaking of last week, I called it. True Blood already fooled me a couple of times this season, but not this time! And I quote from last week, “It did cross my mind that Ben could be Warlow in disguise.” That’s why you write stuff down! I like how they tried to be smooth with it, as he just dropped those fangs down. Poor Jason, back on the vampire blood. He can’t get a break.   So I’m a little confused at how Warlow can be a fairy, and a vampire. That quick conversation with grandpa before throwing him in the portal threw me off. I thought he supposedly came from Lilith. How could he be tied to Lilith, and come from fairies as well? Nora might be right, he just m

My Thoughts on True Blood Season 6 Episode 3

   Now we got the ball rolling True Blood. How can I tell? For one, there were several choices for my favorite line of the night, which wasn’t happening in the first two episodes. We got some action, and people’s plans are starting to unfold. So here are my thoughts on episode 3, “You’re No Good.”   I usually enjoy when Eric has a good plan. It was going so well at first. Too bad the plan involved a stupid human. It also doesn’t help that Tara and Pam aren’t all in on the plan either. I did enjoy how Pam would disagree with Eric, and then Tara would follow it up. I wonder how long Eric can put up with that act. We might not have to wait long to see him explode if Tara ends up doing something stupid with Willa.   On a positive note, it looks like Willa is willing to spill the beans. We already knew the Governor and his people were learning about vamps, and now we know where. We also got the first insight on why the Governor hates vamps. Shame on Mrs. Governor! Who thought
