Mick Foley Joins Horror Comedy ’12 Hour Shift’
Written by Jason McDonald, April 23, 2019
There are few people in this world who have earned my undying love and one of them is Mick Foley.  I consider myself a casual wrestling fan now, but during the Attitude Era I was a diehard and Mick Foley was the biggest reason for that.  So I’m absolutely all for seeing him getting more

[Review] ‘The Curse of La Llorona’ is that it’s Underwhelming at Every Turn
Written by Jason McDonald, April 19, 2019
I’ll start off by saying that I may have had higher than normal expectations for “La Llorona.”  Don’t let my last name fool you, I grew up in a hispanic household and my grandmother loved to terrorize me with stories about La Llorona when it was time for bed. So I was fully onboard for

New ‘Mortal Kombat 11’ Trailer Features the Original ‘Mortal Kombat’ Theme Song in an Awesome Way
Written by Jason McDonald, April 19, 2019
After all these years I never thought they would ever use the old techno “Mortal Kombat” theme song from the original 1995 film.  It’s an absolute pop culture treasure, but for some reason it never really made its way back around to the games. Well Netherrealms and Warner Bros finally rectified that with the launch

[Review] ‘On the Trail of Bigfoot’ is an Insightful Look into the World of Bigfoot Hunters
Written by Jason McDonald, April 18, 2019
If I’m being honest with you I’ve become more of a skeptic over the years.  I probably started life as a Fox Mulder, but I think I’ve slowly grown to be a Dana Scully. So when you present me with a documentary about Bigfoot my immediate reaction is that of complete and total skepticism.  But

Written by Jason McDonald, April 17, 2019
So yesterday Capcom started to tease a special announcement about something they were going to reveal today.   If you had a sharp eye you would’ve noticed that the teaser trailer included a trademark for “Alien Vs Predator.”  So whatever the announcement was going to be, I was all in.

‘Hellboy’ Fails to Raise Hell Over the Weekend
Written by Jason McDonald, April 14, 2019
About a year ago “Hellboy” creator Mike Mignola was talking about how the new “Hellboy” would be a more faithful adaptation of the comic book source material.  While I was a huge fan of Guillermo Del Toro’s “Hellboy” films, I can appreciate Mike being interested in an adaptation that brings more of his stories to

‘The Addams Family’ Return in the First Teaser for their Animated Film
Written by Jason McDonald, April 9, 2019
Yes, yes, I know.  “The Addams Family” films are an absolute classic and any film attempting to do something new with the property has a steep uphill to battle.  That being said, I think an animated adaptation was the right route to take.  You’re gonna have a tough time doing a live action adaptation that

[Review] ‘Pet Sematary’ Shows How Hard it is to Top a Classic
Written by Jason McDonald, April 8, 2019
Remakes are a touchy subject, but remakes of adaptations present their own unique challenges.  Are you going to just redo what came before?  Are you going to do something completely different?  Or are you going back to the source material to create something more true to the source?  “Pet Sematary” faces that unique challenge, but

Here’s Our First Look at Arnold Schwarzenegger in ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’
Written by Jason McDonald, April 5, 2019
I have no idea what to think about the new “Terminator” film.  Is there a chance it could possibly be good?  Do I dare have any hopes?  I want to believe, but I’ve been hurt so many times before . . . We still don’t know a whole lot about what “Terminator: Dark Fate” will

Scream Factory Releasing a Collector’s Edition of ‘Silent Hill’
Written by Jason McDonald, April 5, 2019
When you think of films getting a collector’s edition you tend to think of movies that generally might be considered classics or even strong cult followings.  I’m not sure if “Silent Hill” qualifies as one of those, but I’m still intrigued by the idea of a collector’s edition for it. The 2006 film adaptation of

Shudder is currently putting together an anthology series based on the classic 1982 horror film “Creepshow” and the cast it just announced is quite the collection of talent. It’s extremely fitting that “Creepshow” will be adapting a Stephen King short for it’s series as the original film was written by Stephen King himself.  Hell, he

Written by Jason McDonald, April 3, 2019
We’re barely four months into this year and we’ve already had a lot of great games come out, but among some of my favorites have been the recent Capcom releases of “Resident Evil 2” and “Devil May Cry 5.” During Wondercon weekend I had the opportunity to speak with composer Jeff Rona who worked on
