Faces banner

I’ve seen all kinds of indie horror films. Some were able to land one or two familiar genre actors while others had a cast of complete unknowns.

There’s a place for everything, or so they say. Even Fox News serves a useful purpose: it keeps old stupid white people angry and paranoid so their hearts don’t just stop from the boredom of one more day locked up inside a slow cooker of resentment. The trick, of course, is finding the right time … Continue reading
