If you were to ask me who the breakout starts of The Force Awakens are, I would answer with: Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and BB-8. The latter is without a doubt my new favorite Star Wars character.

From plot twists to speculation, from fan theories to spoilers, Star Wars fans all over the future of this franchise. Luckily the next feature is 'only' a year away, which means that a. we can speculate away for a good 12 months, and b. we'll hopefully have the answers to all of our questions this time next year. Alright, the latter might be too much to ask. Be sure to check out Heath McFartay's article to find out what shocker twist might be waiting for us in a galaxy far, far away.
"A Vivid Dream. A Living Nightmare." That's the quote Creator Alec Brynard starts off his article with. Creepy much! Yes, and it's also a term I'd use to describe He Will Come For You, a film that follows a young man’s descent into madness as he is terrorized by an unknown figure from his mysterious past. If you're a fan of the horror genre then I'd definitely encourage you to give this debut effort of up-and-coming South African filmmakers Dead Monkey Productions 5 minutes and 54 seconds of your precious time, you won't be left disappointed.
