4/24 Taissa Farmiga Joins "THE NUN":


Taissa Farmiga (younger sister of Vera Farmiga) has signed on to star in Corin Hardy's upcoming Conjuring 2 spin-off "THE NUN".. Farmiga has starred in American Horror Story, The Final Girls and Wicked City..

The film is set to land in theaters July 13th 2018..

The story will center around the creepy ass nun from Conjuring 2, James Wan will serve as a producer along with Peter Safran.. David Leslie Johnson (co-writer for The Conjuring 2) will handle the script.. Corin Hardy directed the 2015 flick "The Hallow", he is also attached to the upcoming reboot of THE CROW.. But who knows if that project will ever see the light of day..

This will be WB/New Line's second spin-off from the Conjuring, the first being Annabelle back in 2014..

To be honest I was not a fan of Annabelle, it was mediocre at best - but the film made a ton of cash, pulling in $256,873,813 million Worldwide... So I'm hoping The Nun will be on par with the Conjuring and the sequel, both were excellent films..





4/24 I Watched "Birdemic: Shock and Terror"




"Birdemic: Shock and Terror" A horde of mutated birds descends upon the quiet town of Half Moon Bay, California. With the death toll rising, Two citizens manage to fight back, but will they survive?

Cast: Alan Bagh, Whitney Moore, Janae Caster, Colton Osborne, Adam Sessa, Rick Camp, Stephen Gustavson.. Written and Directed By: James Nguyen..

I rarely rip on a film, I usually find some enjoyment even if the flick is not very good.. That being said the only positive thing I can say about "Birdemic", I thought Whitney Moore at least tried to do something with the role she was given..

Birdemic is a horrible mess, it's not one of those "it's so bad, it's good" - no no! It's just bad, really really bad! I mean bad.. The acting is horrendously (some might say horrifying), the cgi birds were just ridiculous, hell the director should have just went with paper birds on a string - at least that would have been somewhat entertaining.. Directing, writing, sound, editing, all bad tooooo shockingly bad..

Avoid this monumental crap-fest at all cost.. Grade: F

4/23 I Watched "PULSE (1988)":




PULSE is a wonderful 80s sci-fi horror flick, the story centers around a young boy David (played by Joey Lawrence) visiting his divorced father Bill (played by Cliff De Young) for the summer.. The boy soon discovers there is an evil paranormal intelligence inhabiting within the electrical grid system of Los Angeles..

If you enjoy 80s sci-fi horror, you will definitely love PULSE.. The vibe of the flick kind of reminded me of The Gate (1987), another awesome 80s horror movie.. The film is not prefect, some might find it a bit slow.. It's rated PG-13, so gore count is extremely low.. But the flick does have a pretty intense shower scene..

Usually child actors give very wooden performances but I thought Joey Lawrence did excellent job.. Once again Cliff De Young gives a great performance as the dad..

Roxanne Hart plays the step mom (Ellen) she is the only one besides David that believes something strange is going on in the neighborhood .. Matthew Lawrence (Joey Lawrence's little brother) plays Stevie, his actually pretty damn funny - his the only kid willing to hang out with David..

I'm going to give the film a Grade: B
