FlixChatter Review: Chris Evans’ directorial debut BEFORE WE GO (2014)

I had written this review in 2016 – I'm reposting this in honor of Chris Evans' 41st birthday.

5 Horror Movies To Enjoy in the Summertime

As FlixChatter's horror correspondent, you might assume my favorite season is fall...and you'd be right. But that doesn't mean I don't enjoy summer! I love grilling in the backyard, relaxing at the beach (slathered in 70 SPF sunscreen), and roasting marshmallows around a bonfire. And just because fall is the traditionally spooky season doesn't mean …
