Men in Black is a 1997 comedy starring Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith. This is the first of three successful movies in this franchise based off of a Marvel Comic.

Oren Peli takes the real life disaster of the Chernobyl explosion and combines it with the what if of an Urban Legend in “Chernobyl Diaries.”

In 1984 Wes Craven created the legendary vehicle that launched Robert Englund’s career.
Tonight I wrap up reviewing Wes Craven’s Scream franchise with Scream 4. Wes Craven takes a morbid tongue in cheek look at the remake craze in the horror genre. Craven has spawned many iconic pop culture lines and its my opinion that Scream 4 drops “What’s your favorite scary movie,” in favor of Sydney’s line in the climax, “You forgot the first rule of a remake don’t f$^k with the original!”
Scream 4 is right up with Scream 1, the original Nightmare, the original Halloween, and The Fog as some of my all time favorite horror movies. Scream 4 is definitely one of the best movies Craven has to offer.
Sunday Spotlight is a head of schedule and issues in a variation on the sequels series currently being reviewed by Kristina Stancil. You can not do a series on remakes without touching on a classic iconic horror franchise. As Scream 4 wraps up the Scream series Sunday Spotlight issues in yet another masterpiece of Wes Craven by taking on Freddy Krueger.
