31 - Blu-ray Review

31 - Movie ReviewZombie is not finished with Halloween just yet, Boils and Ghouls. Rob Zombie’s 31 is not nearly as good as you’ll want it to be.  It’s also not as bad as other critics are suggesting it is.  The film does EXACTLY what it needs to do, but without establishing any real purpose  ...
