This episode starts with Morgan, who is having hallucinations. The Saviours are arriving. Henry wants to join in the fight but Ezekiel tells him that he can't. Maggie catches some Saviours. She calls for Negan on the walkie talkie but Simon answers. She tells him to retreat or she will kill the prisoners. Simon doesn't care and he decides to attack anyway. Tara gets spotted. Simon sends Dwight to get her. The Saviours enter Hilltop but they get surrounded and there is a big fight. Dwight, Simon and some others escape. Dwight manages to shoot Tara in the arm.

Everything goes a bit crazy. Henry gets a gun and he demands to know who killed his brother. He threatens the prisoners to find out. Rick, Morgan and Daryl have to kill their own people because they have turned. They realise that the Saviours used walker blood to infect their people. Tara was shot with an arrow, so she thinks that she might have been infected. A Saviour called Aiden helps Maggie. He tells her that some of the prisoners wants to stay at Hilltop and not return to the Sanctuary. The episode ends with Ezekiel and Carol looking for Henry, who has disappeared.

This episode was pretty good. There was lots happening and it moved the story forward a bit.

Dead Snow:Red Vs. Dead Movie Review

Dead Snow: Red Vs Dead is a 2014 horror movie sequel to Dead Snow. It is directed by Tommy Wirkola and it stars Vegar Hoel and Martin Starr.

There is a recap of the first movie and Martin(Hoel) is shown to be alive. He is the only survivor he was bitten by one of the zombies. He had to take off his arm with a chainsaw to avoid becoming one of them. He is in a car and the Nazi zombies are attacking him. He escapes them when Herzog gets hit by a lorry and Martin throws away the coin that he had from the end of the first movie. Herzog's severed arm ends up in the car. The zombie is not dead though. He gets up and he takes the coin. Martin thinks that he is safe. The zombies assemble. Martin crashes his car and he ends up in hospital. The police want to speak with him. They ask him about his dead friends. They think that he is responsible for their deaths. He tells them about the Nazi zombies, but they don't believe him. Herzog's arm has been attached. Martin is horrified. He escapes from the hospital as he has new strength thanks to his arm. Unfortunately, he kills people and he is sedated and strapped to his hospital bed.

The zombies start killing. They have a new doctor and he has fixed up Herzog, the leader. He starts to raise the dead soldiers . Martin is the only one who knows what is coming. Martin meets a guy called Bobby who is taking pictures for his friends online who believe in zombies. Martin asks him to let him out. Bobby tells him about his friends who are the Zombie Squad. Martin gets out and his arm throws Bobby out of the window. Martin is on the run now. He contacts the Zombie Squad for help. There are only three of them- Daniel(Starr), Monica and Blake. They tell him that they will come over to Norway from the US. They get their weapons ready. The zombies are after Martin as well as the police.

Martin visits a World War 2 museum and he asks the gift shop guy, Glenn, about the German exhibits. Martin wants to find out more about Herzog. He finds out that he was on a mission for Hitler. He was killed. Martin finds out that his mission was to destroy the village of Talvik and it still is his mission. The zombies show up and Herzog reanimates more corpses. He gets into the war museum and he takes all of the artifacts, including a tank. Martin and Glenn hide and they escape. The zombies also take a map with them. Martin discovers that he can reanimate corpses also. The zombie squad arrive. Martin is disillusioned when he realises there are only three. The zombies are coming.They come up with a plan for Martin to reanimate Soviet soldiers who had been killed by Herzog. They will fight.

Some of the others try and distract Herzog to give Martin some time. They get attacked and they have to withdraw. Herzog continues on his way. Martin confronts Herzog in Talvik and he brings his Russian dead with him. There is a battle but the Nazis get the upper hand and destroy the Russians.
 They realise that Herzog needs to be killed in order to stop the zombies. Herzog faces off with Martin. Glenn gets killed. Monica and Blake are outnumbered. Daniel rolls in with the tank and he blows off Herzog's head. All of the zombies fall. His head lands somewhere in the mountains. Martin is not put in prison as the police saw the zombies and the battle. He heads off to reanimate his girlfriend, Hanna, who was killed in the first movie. He and Hanna have sex. The film ends with someone discovering Herzog's head and he is still alive.

This was a great film. I loved how it just kept flying along. There were no dull moments in this one.
Like the original, it has a sense of humour but plenty of horror also. The zombies were good and the story was fun. I liked how they brought back a survivor for this and the idea of him having powers was interesting. If you liked the first film, I know that you will enjoy this. I certainly did and I highly recommend this one. It is fun and gory and it will satisfy any horror fan. I will give it a 7/10.

Night of the Demons Movie Review

Night of the Demons is a 1988 horror movie directed by Kevin S. Tenney and starring Cathy Podewell, Amelia Kinkade and Linnea Quigley.

The movie begins with a girl called Angela(Kinkade), an unpopular weirdo who is having a party with her pal Suzanne(Quigley) at a place called Hull House, which has a gruesome history and is supposed to be haunted. A group of friends are going to go to her party. They are Judy(Podewell), her boyfriend Jay, Max and Frannie. Another group are also coming. They are Stooge, Roger and Helen. An ex boyfriend of Judy called Sal also turns up. Angela wants to play party games and have a seance. They all decide to do it. They have to look into a mirror and when Helen does, she sees her own death and freaks out. The mirror breaks and something is unleashed in the house. It possesses Suzanne.

Roger gets nervous and he wants to leave. He takes Helen with him and they try to get away. Suzanne is acting strangely and she kisses Angela.  Roger and Helen can't leave. Then Helen disappears.
He locks himself into the car. Jay and Judy fall out when she discovers that he just wants her for sex.
She gets locked into a room. Suzanne is changing. So is Angela. She dances with Stooge and kisses him. She also bites off his tongue. Sal finds Suzanne. She is acting weird and he decides he wants to go.  Helen gets killed and Roger sees her and runs off. Jay and Suzanne are together and they are going to have sex. She is a demon, though and she pokes out his eyes. Stooge is also a demon and he kills Max and Frannie. 

Roger, Sal and Judy have to stick together as everyone else is either dead or a demon. Angela is floating around after them.  Sal gets killed running away from her. Judy and Roger try and escape from the demons who are after them. The dead bodies reanimate and chases them too. They have to try and escape underground and get away from the house and the grounds. They make it out just as the sun comes up. This movie was very entertaining. There were some great scenes and I liked it a lot.  I liked the story and the cast were not bad either. I had fun with this and I found it enjoyable overall. I can see why people like this film and it is a must for horror fans, especially fans of 80's horror. I recommend it and I will give it a 7/10.
