When it comes to horror films; one must have all the key elements to make the film work; besides a great story and director. There must always be a great cast, in particular a great leading lady. In the genere of horror, these leading ladies are many times referred to as, scream queens.

Well, it’s time for a new year and a whole new batch of film reviews and articles for 2014. This is my first 2014 film release review and it’s a remake! Seems like lately if it’s not a sequel film release, it’s a remake and this time it’s from the “totally awesome” decade … the 80′s!

It was just pure violence, but it was also loud, bloody, gory, muscles, sweat, big guns, and even bigger named stars like Stallone, Schwarzengger, and Willis. They were fun, exciting, action-packed. As Hollywood digs through it’s pile of franchise’s to reboot, it appears they’ve found their next franchise to give the modern day makeover. I’m talking about that 1987 Scifi/Action classic, Robocop.
