“Westworld” Episode Review: “The Mother of Exiles” by Nate Blake

“The Mother of Exiles” saw the return of the Man in Black (Ed Harris) and delivered a few stunning revelations.

Black Christmas is a remake – the 1974 version starring Olivia Hussey rightfully bears a place in the slasher canon while the less said of the 2006 remake, … Continue reading “Black Christmas” review by Allison Sutton
