I have been working as a film journalist since 2010, dividing the first four years between radio broadcasting and entertainment writing in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. In 2014, I entered Fresh Fiction (FreshFiction.tv) as the features editor. The following year, I stepped into the film critic position at the Denton Record-Chronicle, a daily North Texas print publication. My time is dedicated to writing theatrical film reviews, at-home entertainment columns, and conducting interviews with on-screen talent and filmmakers, as well as hosting a podcast devoted to genre filmmaking (called My Bloody Podcast). I've been married for seven happy years, and I have one son who is all about dinosaurs just like his dad.

October 28 marks an additional chapter to the RING horror franchise. RINGS is directed by F. Javier Gutierrez (BEFORE THE FALL) and penned by David Loucka (HOUSE AT THE END OF THE STREET), Jacob Aaron Estes (THE DETAILS) and Akiva Goldsman (THE 5TH WAVE).
Paramount Pictures has now debuted the first RINGS trailer and poster, which you can view below.
Well, guys. This looks pretty awful. It’s every bit the kind of Hollywood, beefed up sequel we feared it would be. I don’t know what more needs to be said than this. At least we can rewatch the scary 2002 original film, starring Naomi Watts, right?
