As summer waves a somber good bye, visions of the scariest of seasons are filling movie theaters from coast to coast. Sully, although more heroic than horrifying, had audiences on the edge of their seats, crash landing at the cushy top spot at the box office. Audiences were holding on tight When the Bough Breaks, Don’t Breathe continued to (temporarily) suck the life out of its audience/competition, the Suicide Squad, ironically still full of life, have yet to move on to their next victims, err, story, while The Wild Life, although tame to those R-rated junkies, offered some mad, Robinson Caruso-inspired fun for the just-headed-back-to-school set.
Eastwood and Hanks made one successful pair, a psycho surrogate made for a strange stand in, a tropical island setting found animals gone wild, with horror-loving asthmatics in attendance and danger junkies still killing it.
