When you think Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll frontman Johnny Rock, think Mick Jagger without the mindbending fame. Bono without the gravitas. Steven Tyler without the scarves. David Bowie without the longevity.
In fact, take just about any classic rock band’s lead singer and disregard the wealth and stardom, and you’re left with Johnny (played by Rescue Me‘s Denis Leary), the hard-partying face of the 1990s band The Heathens.

Scream Factory has done an excellent job putting fan favorites and long lost films out, in awesome looking Blurays that are typically filled to the brim with special features. They’ve also done quite the job putting out original films, films that made their debut on the Chiller network, but are now being released by Sf and with good reason. For the most part, the original films have been pretty entertaining, from The Monkey’S Paw and The Squad, to the subject of this review, the Brett Simmons-helmed creature feature, Animal. Taking what could have very easily been yet another horror film about youngsters getting picked off one by one by a silly looking monster, Animal gives you people who are instantly relatable and worth caring about before giving you one gut punch after another.

The most important nominations of the awards season have been announced.
News: Kim K. Wins Razzie For Worst Actress
The 35th annual Razzies, which recognize some of Hollywood's "Worst Achievements in Film," are going to be a tight race this year. Transformers: Age of Extinction leads with seven nominations, but the film is going up against some other truly hated entries such as The Legend of Hercules, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas.
Some of the more interesting nominations, however, come in the acting categories, where Blended star Adam Sandler and Tammy star Melissa McCarthy are both nominated for Worst Actor and Worst Actress respectively – despite having just won People's Choice Awards on Jan. 7.
Even more surprising is the Worst Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel nomination for the musical Annie, which was also »
