Just what does it take to put out a horror movie in this day and age? We are living in a world, director Owen Egerton tells us, where nine-year-old kids know the rules of Freddy before they've ever seen "A Nightmare on Elm Street" or any of its sequels.
Egerton has gone with a meta take on horror for his latest, "Blood Fest," and sits down to chat with us about the state of horror, his favorite movies in the genre, and what constitutes a horror film in the first place.
The movie "Book Club" offers up a great cast of leading women, explores things we don't always see in movies, and then hampers the whole thing by tossing in a little bit of "50 Shades of Grey." The unnecessary addition seems like a silly gimmick to get folks into seats rather than being truly germane to the story.
"Avengers: Infinity War" is out on Blu-ray next week, and that means it's time for us to sit down and talk about the MCU once more. Has this monolithic connected universe changed Hollywood, and if so, has it done it for the better or for the worse?
Oh, and is "Infinity War" any good?
