Last week on 11.22.63, we were introduced to Jake Epping (James Franco), an adult education teacher who was passed on the serious task of going back in time to stop the assassination of JFK. Crazy, huh? His friend Al (Chris Cooper) went to the back for 2 minutes and returned severely aged and dying of cancer. “I need you to go in this closet, and then I’ll tell you everything.” He sees and is a believer and tries to go on the journey from 1960 to 1960, but the past tries to get him in Dallas. Jake hightails it out of there, but decides to stop in Holden, Kentucky to fix something – namely the murder of Harry Dunning’s mother, brother, and sister, and the brain damage done to him as a young boy by his father.

The best places to find horror movies are on streaming sites. Most of the horror that ends up in theatres are money grabs that rely totally on jump scares and cheap parlor tricks… I’m talking movies like Ouija, Annabelle, and the dreadful looking, upcoming Sinister 2. But horror fans can rely on sites like Netflix to update regularly, and breathe some fresh air into otherwise stale genres. After nearly twenty minutes of “spin the queue” last night, I settled on Would You Rather. The film’s cast struck me right away as it’s two featured stars were Brittany Snow (great in Hairspray and the Pitch Perfect films) and Dr. Herbert West himself, horror veteran Jeffrey Combs. The plot seemed utterly simple: 8 people under desperate financial stress are invited to a dinner party hosted by an eccentric millionaire. Together, they’ll play a game, and the winner will be taken care of. What could possibly go wrong?
