GRAVETRANCERS #1: GROTESQUE, STYLISH AND ORIGINAL


December 13, 2017    Andy Vanderbilt

  I get uneasy when things advertise themselves as being “grindhouse.”Typically, it means the creators just throw as much gore, nudity, and sexual content in the mix, so it comes off as shocking without any sort of substance to it. There’s nothing wrong with that at all — I’m a…

STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI Frustrates As Much As It Thrills


December 12, 2017    Mike Vanderbilt

There’s a moment in THE LAST JEDI where the villainous Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) smashes his helmet in a fit of rage after being belittled by Supreme Leader Snoke for his costume. Ren’s get up was as much an ode to the character’s idol Darth Vader as it was a…

    As a kid, I was a devout Michael Myers fan. Granted, I was a horror junkie in general, but there was something about that white-masked boogeyman that fueled my imagination and struck fear into my bones like lightning. I can still remember my elementary-school self waiting impatiently in…
