Blu-ray Review: Jeepers Creepers 2

Blu-ray Review: Jeepers Creepers 2

Jeepers Creepers 2
Blu-ray (Collector’s Edition)
Director: Victor Salva
Screenwriter: Victor Salva
Cast: Ray Wise, Jonathan Breck, Lena Cardwell, Drew Tyler Bell
Distributor: Scream Factory
Rated R | 104 Minutes
Release Date: June 14, 2016

Disclaimer: In all good conscience, I cannot review Scream Factory’s new Blu-ray release of Jeepers Creepers 2 without mentioning filmmaker Victor Salva‘s past. In 1988, Salva was convicted of sexual misconduct with the 12-year-old star of Clownhouse, his first feature film. Salva pleaded guilty to lewd and lascivious conduct, oral copulation with a person under 14, and three counts of procuring a child for pornography. He was sentenced to three years in prison, of which he served 15 months. He completed his parole in 1992, nine years before the release of Jeepers Creepers. I leave it to you to decide if separating the art from the artist is applicable in this instance.

On to the review below.

New Poster For Adam Green’s ‘Digging Up The Marrow’
The Movie God   |  

Digging up the Marrow Header Image

An effectively creepy new poster has been released for Digging up the Marrow, the upcoming movie from Adam Green, writer and director of Hatchet, Frozen (no, not that one silly), and Hatchet II.

The movie has been on the way for a few years now, but hasn’t received much attention yet, which has been the intention. Green described the movie as an “art documentary” for a while, and despite a release fast approaching very little has been sent out to promote it including no trailer yet, creating a healthy dose of intriguing mystery around it.

What the movie is exactly is a bit tricky to explain, so I’ll let those behind its creation do it! You can check out the cool new poster for Digging up the Marrow, read more about it, AND watch a video of Green talking about the project and how it came to exist below.

FearNet Grabs Rights To Canceled CW Series ‘Reaper’; Plans Reunion Special
The Movie God   |  

Reaper Image

Of all the shows that the CW Network has produced, Reaper was among the best. In fact, some would even argue it was the only show they’ve ever aired worth watching. It’s also a show that was canceled far too soon, after only two seasons. And like many other similar shows, fans were outraged and fought to see it revived, but to no avail, sadly.

Little has been heard of the show since its cancellation, but it doesn’t appear to be dead yet. At least not entirely dead (it’s only MOSTLY dead). According to reports, FearNet has made their first off-network deal, licensing the show.

The deal sees FearNet acquiring the rights to all 31 episodes of Reaper‘s two-season run to air, and they also will produce a brand new reunion special for fans.

While speaking to IGN at an event for the upcoming episode of USA’s Pysch, which will be dedicated to Twin Peaks, actor Ray Wise shared that he had been cast in Matthew Vaughn‘s Marvel comic book movie, X-Men: First Class.

Wise states “I’m playing the Secretary of State of the United States. I’ll be going over there in the next couple of weeks,” and touched on working with Vaugh and others as well, saying “I love Matthew. And Bryan Singer‘s producing it and [it’s got] a great cast – James McAvoy, January Jones, Oliver Platt.”

DVD Review: ‘Reaper’ Season 2
The Movie God   |  

Reaper season 2 DVDReaper
Season 2
Starring Bret Harrison, Tyler Labine, Rick Gonzalez, Missy Peregrym, Ray Wise
Lionsgate Home Entertainment
Release Date: June 9, 2009

The second season of Reaper had the unfortunate disposition of being seemingly cursed from the very start. After a highly-acclaimed first season gained it a large cult following, the show’s future was still in danger, and the writer’s strike did not help their cause. Eventually, when the dust settled a bit, it was decided that the show would get more of a second chance than a second season with a shortened 13-episode run. Sadly, this uphill battle ended like the finale of Glory, and at this moment Reaper has been canceled with only a few small chances at another network being it’s savior (Read: ‘Reaper’ Canceled: The CW Decides It Wants To Be Just Like Fox When It Grows Up). This of course isn’t the first time a great show was killed too early, and even in this depressing hole, Reaper still has plenty to offer those who have yet to see it.

Reaper is a show about Sam (Bret Harrison), a regular guy who works at a home improvement super store called The Work Bench with his best friends Ben (Rick Gonzalez) and Sock (Tyler Labine), as well as his love interest/friend Andi (Missy Peregrym). On his 21st birthday, Sam discovers that his parents (thinking that they would never have children) sold the soul of their first born child in order to heal his father who was very sick at the time. After he turned 21, the Devil (Ray Wise) comes to claim him and set him off on his new eternal job as the Devil’s bounty hunter, who catches the souls of the damned who escape hell. The show for the most part sounds like a horror movie, and certainly does have scary content, but rest-assured, it’s an incredibly fun and funny series.
