She’s Got The Devil In Her … Again?

In case you missed it, I almost did, the television network Fox recently rebooted the Exorcist franchise into a series. I debated whether I wanted to watch it or not.

I think Kirkman reached the…

Last night my fiance and I went down town to see the remake of the cult classic movie Evil Dead.  While I was in college the original Evil Dead trilogy was the proverbial Holy Grail of movies for myself and my friends.  There were countless viewings or references to the movies throughout my years at…
