Pet Sematary (1983)

It's the start of something new, and it feels so right to be reviewing a novel that is actually good!

Episode 33 - Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) and Seven Pounds (2008)

This week, Simone and Chad look at the super fun twist on Jane Austen's classic, as well as Will Smith's unfortunate but touching bid for an Oscar. What will these crazy kids get up to next?
