By now TWIN PEAKS: THE RETURN, the Showtime shepherded follow-up to 1990-91’s TWIN PEAKS, has been analyzed from every conceivable standpoint
It’s the week of February 13, 2009 and the hotly promoted FRIDAY THE 13th remake has opened number one at the U.S. box office.
Written by an obvious fan of the series, this heavily illustrated paperback is a voluminous look at the eleven FRIDAY THE 13th films.
1973’s THE EXORCIST remains one of the most successful and enduring horror movies of all time yet, Hollywood being as it is, multiple sequels were an inevitability.
This is the official sequel to THE EXORCIST (the novel) written by its creator William Peter Blatty. Most of the things that made THE EXORCIST such a memorable read are in evidence in LEGION, including page-turning suspense, strong characterizations and a powerful sense of raging evil.
