In 2014, Keanu Reeves (The Matrix) made a career comeback to action films with a little known movie entitled John Wick. It featured the perfect revenge story, a man hell-bent on avenging the death of his dog that his wife gave him from beyond the grave. The movie had everything going for it — great plot, great acting, great action, ... Read More

Showtime debuted Homeland in October 2011, and, since then, fans have followed the story of Carrie Mathison (Claire Daines, Stardust), a CIA operations officer who suffers from bi-polar disorder.

Rob Zombie is synonymous with all things horror.
