The Last Action Hero (1993) – John McTiernan

When it was first released The Last Action Hero, which saw Arnold Schwarzenegger reteamed with Predator director John McTiernan, and featuring a script that Shane Black was involved in, the film flopped, failed to find an audience, and marked Arnold’s first failure at the box office.

The Golden Child (1986) – Micheal Ritchie

The next title in DK Canada’s Monsters in the Movies, as I continue my journey through the chapters on the Devil’s Works is a film that features demons, magic,and Eddie Murphy, and I don’t know why, but this, to me, feels like a forgotten film of the 80s, The Golden Child. I remember seeing it…

This corner of the Alien universe is my next stop on my journey with the Sci-Fi Chronicles, as it seems I’ve…
