The Sunday News Recap 10.28.12

Laurie, what's the boogeyman?
by Ryan Arthur

Greetings, guys and ghouls, and welcome to the pre-Halloween edition of the Sunday News Recap, featuring the last seven days worth of reviews and features from the eFC/HBS mothership. We’ll also run down the box office numbers for the weekend and prep you for the week ahead. I’m Ryan, and I was working late on my Haftorah, when I heard a knock on my bedroom-doorah. I opened it up and to my surprise: there was a werewolf standing there with glowing gold eyes! He says “tomorrow, my son, you will be a man; but tonight's the time to join the wolfen clan: tomorrow you will stand at the bimah and pray but tonight let's gaze at the moon and bay.” Werewolf bar mitzvah; spooky, scary. Boys becoming men; men becoming wolves.

Right. Moving on.

"Death has come to your little town, Sheriff. Now you can either ignore it, or you can help me to stop it.”

Previewing the week ahead...

We've got more DVD and Blu-Ray recommendations in our Upcoming DVD Release Schedule.

Look for regular updates and additions in Criticwatch from Erik Childress on Friday, as well.

And hey, don't forget to visit the Contest page for your chance to win DVDs and other assorted movie-related swag from eFC/HBS.

We'll also have some additional features and editorials throughout the week, and I'll have your Recap ready to go on Sunday.

And that’ll wrap things up for the Recap this week. We’re going to take the next few days to load up on Halloween candy that should probably be left for the trick-or-treaters…but won’t be. You can always take a look at our previous Recaps and join and visit our forums, too. Thanks for reading, and as always, your feedback is appreciated.
