Top 13 Horror Films for Female Empowerment

13-women-empowerement-horror-underworld

Insidious-Chapter-2-2013-Movie-film-2

The Most Disappointing Genre Films of 2013. The past year contains far too many candidates for this unpleasant distinction from overblown, overwrought blockbusters, to head-scratching remakes, to painfully trite low-budget independent features. The Lone Ranger, Carrie and Night of the Naked Dead are just a few of the bombs of the past twelve months and you grue-crew brave the memories of those film to revisit them one last time before sending them off to Valhalla … Continue reading

Monster Movie … Continue reading
