“What if River Phoenix Had Lived?” – Drew McWeeny catalogs what probably would and wouldn’t have happened if Phoenix hadn’t died that Halloween in 1993. It impacts some surprising projects and people. But mostly Joaquin Phoenix and Leonardo Di Caprio.

“Eric’s Bad Movies: Bloodrayne: The Third Reich” – Eric D. Snider does battle with Dr. Mangler, Uwe Boll and some vampire Nazis.

“So What Do You Do Gale Ann Hurd, Executive Producer of The Walking Dead?” – Speaking of zombies, it’s weird to think of Hurd as the EP of that show because of how many other amazing things she’s done in her career. Here she offers a great deal of advice while name-dropping Roger Corman.
