TV Review: DEAD OF SUMMER – Episode 3: “Mix Tape”

DOS

There was a time when I would sit around the radio and wait for my favorite song to play. If I could catch it in time, then I could hit the REC and PLAY button at the same and have it taped onto a cassette. I was very OCD about it and deem the recording […]

I’ve been seeing ads for DEAD OF SUMMER everywhere. I went to the theater four times in the last two weeks and saw at least two advertisements before my movies.

TV Review: OUTCAST – Episode 5 “The Road Before Us”
