    Cries in the Night

    ★½

    Originally tagged as "Cries in the Night," this Canadian horror film had a lot of potential, but sure takes its time executing it.

    Young Heather (Lesleh Donaldson) is sent to stay with her grandmother (Kay Hawtrey). She is going to help her turn their old funeral home into a bed-and-breakfast, and Grandma needs the help ever since Grandpa (Jack Van Evera) skipped town, although Grandma is certain of his eventual return.

    This was a very observant, and darkly comic, little story; expertly paced and edited.…

    Brian Regan: Nunchucks and Flamethrowers

    ★½

    Brian's first joke was a meme I have seen a million times before about losing fifteen pounds, and only having twenty-five more to go. My heart sank as the unenthusiastic audience showed they had also seen that meme, and things went downhill from there. Regan veered wildly into sports, only hitting laughs when talking about scoring in tennis. His take on unheard questions in police department press conferences (where the special's title comes from) should have been hilarious, but he…
