Up first is Dark Skies from Scott (Legion, Priest) Stewart starring Keri Russel, Josh Hamilton, Dakota Goyo and Kadan Rockett. In the film, from the producers of Insidious andParanormal Activity, a family begins to experience what may be supernatural activity in their home. But the more they encounter the more it appears to be visitors from beyond. J.K. Simmons steps in to give them the skinny on The Grey preparing them for the final battle to save their children. Doc and David pitch the idea the film is far better than its dismal box office returns, but still not great.
Next up is a recap of the last two episodes of The Walking Dead: Home and I Ain’t a Judas. Is Rick going crazy? Will Merle betray everyone around him, even his brother Daryl? Will Andrea take Carol’s advice? Doc and David rant about how the show is back on track and look to what future episodes may have in store.
Then, it’s time for Spiders 3D from director Tibor (The Gate, I, Madman and Ice Spiders) Takacs. Patrick (Starship Troopers) Muldoon, Christa (Drive Angry, Day of the Dead) Campbell and William (Aliens) Hope star. Doc and David both appreciate the film for its b-movie cheese-ball approach while agreeing, as a film, it may be a god-awful mess. Still the film beats most SyFy features to a pulp.
