James Wan proves to be the modern king of horror once again with "The Conjuring 2". He does a fine job blending together jump scares with a sense of buildup that captures the essence of both slow-burning classics like "Rosemary's Baby" and "The Exorcist" and the new wave of sudden clanging and banging frights being released today. As a Christian, I also found it refreshing that the Warrens' religious beliefs weren't overlooked or dumbed down.

The creator of the modern incarnation of the Suicide Squad, John Ostrander, returns to pen DC Comics’ Suicide Squad: War Crimes Special #1. Gus Vazquez and Carlos Rodriguez provide the sort of graphic gore and visual frenzy we’ve come to expect from the pages of any book featuring Task Force X. Now if we could only get the real Harley Quinn from “Batman: The Animated Series” back, these books would be near-perfect.

Lucasfilm and Disney take us back a long time ago to a galaxy far, far away with "Star Wars Rebels: Complete Season Two" on Blu-ray and DVD. Showrunner Dave Filoni guides multiple writers like George Lucas, Simon Kinberg, and even legendary novelist Timothy Zahn ("Heir to the Empire") in expanding the "Star Wars" universe. Freddie Prinze Jr., Taylor Gray, Vanessa Marshall, Steve Blum, and Tiya Sicar are joined by supporting voice actors Ashley Eckstein ("Star Wars: The Clone Wars"), Dee Bradley Baker ("Star Wars: The Clone Wars"), Sarah Michelle Gellar ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer"), Brent Spiner ("Star Trek: The Next Generation"), and James Earl Jones as Darth Vader for the sophomore season of the Disney XD series.
Basically, "The Darkness" is an exorcism film from the standpoint of Native American folklore instead of the usual traditional Christian approach. The Indian mythology kept reminding me of "Poltergeist II: The Other Side". There are some mild scares here and there. I also award the film some points for trying to do something different with it's use of autism as a plot device. However, most Christian people are going to be turned off by the shots taken at their religion and the Bible.

I know what many of you are thinking. "KISS put out another live album? Why?" It's really quite simple and makes a whole lot of sense to followers of the group. First, a new live album serves as a gauge of the band's career as performers. Secondly, it's a fantastic way to mark the milestone and celebrate 40 years of KISS hits. That's really all the reasons KISS Army members need to embrace a new live record.
