    P is for Pituitary Hunter

    I wish this one lived up to its title! I mean, there is indeed a pituitary hunter, but it's far less exciting that it sounds. It's essentially a story about the police trying to figure out who the killer is and then nab him, but it's told so strangely and disjointed that it's almost like random scenes thrown together. It honestly took me about 45 minutes to really feel like I…

    Evilspeak dares to ask the big questions we'd all like the answers to. Y'know, stuff like "How do you confront a bully?" "Is there a good excuse for being late to class?" and "What are the keys to the kingdom of Satan's magic?"

    This movie is super fun, a totally '80s romp about Satan, soccer, and a computer ready and willing to help our hero perform a black mass. How can I…
