Review: Fright Night (2011)

With most remakes, it’s incredibly difficult not to compare and contrast with the original source material. However, the most recent version of Fright Night makes it easy to separate the two productions and view them individually on their own merits. Fright Night

Review: Evidence

La Herencia Valdemar & La Herencia Valdemar II: La Sombra Prohibida

Can there be another writer more misrepresented in film than H P Lovecraft? For the last fifty years, his writing has been the inspiration for countless filmmakers, but rarely have the results been successful.
