APEX Blu-ray Review

  Directed by : Edward Drake (Cosmic Sin, Breach) Co-written by : Corey Large (The Ninth Passenger) and Edward Drake Starring : Neal McDonough (“Yellowstone,” Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City), Bruce Willis (Die Hard, The Sixth Sense), Lochlyn Munro (“Riverdale”), Megan Peta Hill (Open Water 3), and Trevor Gretzky (Spiral).  Richard Connell's short story THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME has been adapted for film and television dozens of times over the last 90 years. If you are unfamiliar with the story itself, you are undoubtedly familiar with some of its inspired movies. This 98-year-old tale about a big-game hunter from NYC who finds himself abandoned on a Caribbean island where he is hunted by a Russian aristocrat is material ripe for modern contextualization and social commentary. Some of the notable spins on this classic yarn are THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME (1932), THE RUNNING MAN (1987), SURVIVING THE GAME (1994), THE PEST (1997), THE HUNT (2020), and of course Tremors: Shrieker Isl


  2021 Directed by: Josh Ruben Written by: Mishna Wolff Stars: Sam Richardson and Milana Vayntrub It is incredibly difficult to get one thing right when you are making a film be it a horror, comedy, or mystery. To get all of those right and execute a horror/comedy/mystery that delivers on all fronts is a Herculean task and should only be attempted by someone with a clear vision and a complete lack of risk aversion. WEREWOLVES WITHIN is a screwball comedy with enough horror to satisfy the Fango crowd and a whodunit mystery that in no way feels tacked on or arbitrary. Forest ranger Finn Wheeler (Sam Richardson) is having a tough time with his girlfriend and sees his new assignment to Beaverfield as the perfect way to be less available. He is introduced to the residents of this small mountain community through the local mail carrier Cecily Moore (Milana Vayntrub). To say the townsfolk are eccentric would be understating it. After a blizzard takes out the town's power the unconventi
