Liam’s Pick – Harrow County

Emmy always knew that the woods surrounding her home crawled with ghosts and monsters. But on the eve of her eighteenth birthday, she learns that she is connected to these creatures–and to the land itself–in a way she never imagined.

Collecting the first four issues of the southern gothic fairy tale from the creator of smash hit The Sixth Gun, beautifully and hauntingly realized by B.P.R.D.’s Tyler Crook!

Brian W’s Pick – Fatale

GUNS! SEX! SECRET CULTS! AND MONSTERS! Nothing the BEST-SELLING and AWARD-WINNING creators of SLEEPER, CRIMINAL and INCOGNITO have done so far will prepare you for the explosive debut of FATALE! A reporter in 2012 stumbles on a secret that leads him down the darkest path imaginable to a seductive woman who’s been on the run since 1935, a mobster who may be an immortal demon monster, and the stories of all the doomed men who’ve been caught in their decades-long struggle. FATALE blends noir and horror to tell a riveting epic unlike anything you’ve seen before.

Liam’s Movie Pick – The Invitation

While attending a dinner party at his former house, a man (Logan Marshall-Green) starts to believe that his ex-wife (Tammy Blanchard) and her new husband (Michiel Huisman) have sinister plans for the guests.

Cover Story – Westworld

Westworld is a new series from HBO written by Jonathan Nolan and his wife Lisa Joy, executive produced by JJ Abrams.  The show is a who’s who of stars Evan Rachel Woods, Ed Harris, Anthony Hopkins, James Marsden, and Thandie Newton to name a few.

SPOILER ALERT – We go very deep with this episode.  We talk about the imagery, parallels to the original movie, and tons of talk about the music in the HBO series and where it can go from here.
