Happy 4th of July! ‘Merica! This week on The First Run, Chris and Matt discuss the latest in the Conjuring franchise, ‘Annabelle Comes Home’. After the surprisingly good ‘Annabelle: Creation’, the third film promises more disturbing not-quite-possessed evil doll scares. Does the film deliver? And what was up with that marketing plan that upset Chris so much? Then it’s on to Anna Biller’s highly stylized critique of the portrayal of women in cinema with the burgeoning cult classic, ‘The Love Witch’. There’s the somewhat regularly entertaining review of the big releases on Blu-Ray & DVD, featuring the Straight to DVD and Streaming Picks of the Week. Then the show wraps with Call It! What call would you make; Sequels or Reboots, Batman ’89 or Last Crusade? It’s a double shot of horror this week on The First Run.
