REVIEW: ‘The Casebook of Eddie Brewer’

Feel free to call me crazy now, but a long time ago – when I was far more fearless and impulsive than I am now – I had a brief interaction with a ghost.

The girl I was living with at the time said she had suspected there was one living in our house. So, one day – after scant few preparations – I set out to talk to it, to help it move on.

The gang's all here for "The Purge".

There was one of those internet card memes going around that, in essence, said: “I’m looking forward to the Zombie Apocalypse. Then I can go around and shoot all the stupid people.” I think the actual language is more succinct and most likely, a little more colorful but you get the gist.

“The Purge” gives us a little insight into what might happen when that day comes.
