| May 1, 2012 | 0 Comments

There’s a new restaurant in town, and its original menu included Soylent Green. Don’t’ believe me? The first clue is that Loren Bouchard’s family-centered animated workplace comedy launched with an episode titled “Human Flesh.” And the funeral home is right next door. Coincidence or convenience?

Not many things are as twisted, disturbing, and debilitating as murder. The Snowtown Murders chronicles the case of the same name. From 1992-1999, John Bunting and his crew lived on the low and took the lives of nearly a dozen men in Australia, all of which Bunting disliked for a personal reason. Though grisly and […]
