Bubba Ho-Tep (2002) – Don Coscarelli

Mummies! A fairly short chapter in DK Canada’s Monsters in the Movies book, this fun chapter is actually filled with films I have already reviewed for the blog, so I was delighted to be able to revisit a cult favorite that I hadn’t written up before. Ash, from the Evil Dead films may be Bruce…

Pokemon Movie Companion (2017) – Simcha Whitehill
