    31 Hits DVD/Bluray/Digital HD This December; Comes With Four hour Documentary

    Rob Zombie’s latest film, 31, has had the effect most of his films tend to have: a pretty divisive one. Personally, I LOVED the film (review) and think it’s one of the most entertaining horror films in a long, long time. It’s unique, it’s fun and it’s brutal as hell. Zombie created a true horror […]

Faux documentaries can be entertaining if done right. One of the greatest examples is BEST IN SHOW, a comedy dream team full of improvisational sequences that help viewers believe in the characters as real people.
