Halloween Ends (2022)

Directed by David Gordon Green Trancas International Films/Rough House Pictures/Universal Pictures/Miramax/Blumhouse You remember in the remake of Friday the 13th how Jason had that underground lair?

See, I was in the mood for a fair-to-middling production … Continue reading The Cave (2005)
