Derry, Maine, is not normal. It looks like your average small town, the kind of place that is replicated and dots the landscape all over the U.S. New England district. In some ways, the town looks almost like a picture postcard. However, looks can be deceiving. For instance, the locals are known...

If we can explore why people are drawn to the Horror genre, then we’ll be tackling some of the most sophisticated material the imagination has to offer.

Some movies have been referred to as emotional rollercoasters. For “The Book of Henry,” it would be described as an emotional Apollo mission, or in other words a testament of every element coming together and pulling of something excellent.

Indie director Zach Braff, better known as the daydreaming doctor J. D. from “Scrubs,” delivers his third feature film without an ounce of indie in the frame. Although the family-friendly feel-good comedy is highly entertaining and hits theaters in time for Easter, it also misses the edginess seen...
