    Dougie Jones…   We still don’t have Agent Cooper back, yet somehow “Dougie” is very good at being Cooper without being Cooper. I knew he wasn’t going to drink the coffee. I didn’t know how it would come about, but I knew. It’s as if he carries something…

August 10, 2017    Jeremy Lowe

  The horror genre has always followed certain trends. I enjoyed the splatter films of the 1980’s and even torture porn that grew to popularity in the early 2000’s. Other fads, simply don’t appeal to me. Right now there is a slew of horror films, where the title of a…

  If the logical extension of GREMLINS (1984) was CRITTERS (1986), ELVES (1989) and CHILD’S PLAY (1988), then the logical extension of CHILD’S PLAY is PUPPET MASTER (1989), DOLLY DEAREST (1991) and DEMONIC TOYS (1992), Full Moon Entertainment Features’ version of a childhood nightmare.     DEMONIC TOYS stuck close…

  Quick question : who is the most tragic figure in David Lynch and Mark Frost’s Twin Peaks 2017/Twin Peaks: The Return/Twin Peaks Season Three?     Is it Kyle MacLachlan’s Special Agent Dale Cooper, bifurcated into two distinct beings? I’m thinking no — in Part Thirteen, “Evil Coop” finally dispenses…
