Mini Review:

This is pretty much your standard b-rated horror movie, what sets it apart from a lot of other ones is the fact it stars Ving Rhames. To me his the zombie king! Having starred in Dawn of the Dead (remake), Day of the Dead (remake) and this flick. His best would have been the Dawn of the Dead role though.

I had watched this several times when it aired on SyFy channel and it recently made it’s way to Amazon Prime so I figured I’d watch it again.

The other thing is they had a tiger on here before The Walking Dead, not the comics but the TV show. The only difference is this tiger is a zombie and the one that was on TWD killed zombies. So if you’re into zombie movies and especially b-rated ones you should check this one out.

Real People. Investigating Real Haunted Locations. Five Days. No Camera Crew. They. Are. Stranded.

There have been so many good paranormal related shows on TV in the past ten years or more, but it seems like the ones I really get into are gone before you know it. This one just happened to be one of my favorites and I was always hoping one day maybe I would get a chance to be on it with my wife.

Stranded debuted on February 27, 2013 and aired on the SyFy network. It was hosted by Josh Gates and produced by Jason Blum, Casey Brumels, Brad Kuhlman and Josh Gates.

Josh Gates created the show as a psychological and paranormal experiment.

Each episode features a three person group made up of paranormal believers and skeptics. There are no crew members just the group filming with their hand held cameras and dozens of fixed cameras.
The spend five days in a haunted location in North America.
