Ghostbusters Review: The New Ghostbusters is a Bust

Horror Movies

By Billy Russell The elephant in the room prior to discussing the remake of the 1984 film Ghostbusters is the rampant, disgusting amount of sexism surrounding the film.

Aliens, Entertainment, Horror Movies

by Taylor Leonard Aliens, for the most part, get a bad rap in Hollywood.
