THE INSECT CHORUS

2 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 22 minutes

It’s like a fusion of “CSI” and “Inside the Actor’s Studio,” and that’s not a combination that anyone sees often…

THE EVADING (DVD)
4 Stars

“The Evading” actually plays like a hybrid of several different Japanese horror films done in a strictly American style, giving it some serious innovation credits to its name…

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure with “Dumpster Diver”,
