Today marks the 20th anniversary of the release of SCREAM 2, the sequel to the movie that kickstarted the 90s horror movie wave, and one of the rare sequels in the horror genre that was actually pretty darn entertaining. So to commemorate the occasion I decided to rank the death scenes in this movie from worst to best.

If there is one thing Jason Voorhees loves almost more than killing everyone he meets it is the ladies. The proof is in the pudding, folks! Jason loves to spend as much time as possible with members of the fairer sex. Sure he gets all stabby and hacky with them but no one is perfect. With that in mind I have put together this list of the best Final Girls to ever come up against Jason and live to tell the tale.
Considered one of the best movies in the FRIDAY THE 13TH franchise, Part 2 did a lot of monumental things like killing off original FRIDAY THE 13TH Final Girl Alice, introducing grownup Jason Voorhees (in a snazzy pillow case/potato sack instead of his familiar hockey mask, and presented a mystery that has plagued FRIDAY THE 13TH fans for decades and spurred plenty of questions surrounding the final fate of homogeneously handsome camp counselor/Ginny Field’s boyfriend Paul Holt. Now I have done some investigating and found out all sorts of info about what possibly happened to Paul but even after my sleuthing I still have just as many questions as when I started out.

There is a lot not to like about the 2009 FRIDAY THE 13TH reboot, it was awfully written (by a cadre of writers no less) and mundanely directed and had the unmitigated gall to actually have Jason Voorhees running. Running I say!!! Jason doesn’t run; he walks at a brisk pace but that is about it. But those are not even the things that I am most bothered by. So with that in mind I present to the world on this Friday the 13 of May in the year of our Lord 2016 my top 6 reasons for why the FRIDAY THE 13TH Reboot sucked.
As a big old nerd I wholeheartedly recognize and appreciate that the realm of genre (science fiction, fantasy, horror, action/adventure) TV has always been very progressive and ahead of the curve in pop culture when it comes to LGBTQ representation and over the years I have become a major fanboy of many of the LGBTQ characters that have appeared on those TV shows. So in honor of LGBTQ Pride Month I figured I’d share some of that love with this list of my favorite characters from some of my favorite TV shows.
Summer time is almost here and you know what that means: lots of sitting on the couch in front of the boob tube (with a tall glass of lemonade) catching all of the cool new and returning shows that the networks are going to be putting out during the humid months! The outside is full of cancer causing sunshine and malicious bugs out to give you lyme disease…stay inside where its safe under the warm glow of the television. Now click onward to see which shows I will be setting my DVR to record this summer.
In its first season on CBS, SUPERGIRL was a light and airy show that featured lots of “Girl Power!” that was a nice alternative to the more testosterone heavy fare on the other DC shows that were airing on Fox and The CW. With the move to The CW in its 2nd season I was pretty excited since that meant crossovers with ARROW, THE FLASH AND LEGENDS OF TOMORROW would be much easier to get done than they were when SUPERGIRL was on another network. And that was proven by just how enjoyable the “Invasion” crossover turned out to be. But aside from that blip of awesome, the 2nd season of SUPERGIRL has been a chore to get through and since I am the type of guy who likes to share my opinion…click onward to find out exactly why SUPERGIRL really does suck now.
