Chad Reviews AMERICAN HORROR STORY: TV’s Scariest Show Ever!

Ryan Murphy, the guy who created Glee, now wants to make you pee!  And, with the help of his Glee co-worker and co-creative partner, Brad Falchuk, he is doing just that every Wednesday night with the FX original series American Horror Story!  When Dave Spencer and I were co-hosting our movie review show The Screening Room, we had pretty much given up on the horror movie genre.  Studios realized that for these types of movies to really make money, they had to be rated PG-13.  After all, the teenagers were the ones going to the cinema and buying the tickets and, more importantly, buying all those cheeseball special effects and watered-down scary-movie devices.  But, suddenly, the genre is alive and well on the small screen.  With HBO's True Blood and AMC's The Walking Dead, horror has a new home on the tube.  And horror's newest home of all, American Horror Story's MURDER HOUSE, is the most terrifying of them all!

How I Survived Netflix (No, I Won’t Be Going Back!)

Ah Netflix, how I've loved it and I've hated it over the last seven years.  The once popular "you rent DVDs, we ship them to your home" service has taken a brutal beating over recent membership fee increases and then today, their stock price dropped due to continuing customer dissatisfaction.

“God Bless America” on America’s Got Talent [Video]

Earlier this week, I introduced you all to the genre-bending bluegrass band, THE FIDDLEHEADS, who performed last week during the first round of quarterfinals on America's Got Talent!  Though, they failed to make the semifinals, THE FIDDLEHEADS were super-cool and inventive!  Today, I want to introduce you to another act from the show I have fallen in love with!  THE SILHOUETTES are not only bound for the semifinals, the could go all the way and win the one million dollar top prize and headlining gig in Las Vegas!  Last night's tribute to the U.S.A. was moving and mesmorizing.  This act is creative, visually stunning and beautiful to behold!
