A Bone to Pick: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery brings fancy murder to Hallmark Movies & Mysteries!

a bone to pick Aurora Teagarden Mystery Hallmark

That’s the bastard with all the overdue library books!


Hallmark Movies & Mysteries is in the business of kickstarting new mystery movie franchises starring alumni from Full House because they are ratings gold, and 2015 is a big year in new series starting up. Thus, we’re getting the Aurora Teagarden series, which as all literary fans know is written by Charlaine Harris, who wrote the Southern Vampire Mystery series that True Blood is based on! A Bone to Pick: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery is the first of what will probably be at least three of the films, the actual details are a bit hazy and will probably alter based on ratings.

A librarian with a sharp mind for murder, Aurora Teagarden is known around her small town as a master sleuth. When her friend Jane unexpectedly dies and leaves Aurora everything in her will, she also leaves a troubling murder mystery haunting her neighborhood. It is up to Aurora to piece together the clues—-including a skull, its missing skeleton and a suspicious group of neighbors—-and solve the murder before she becomes the unlikely killer’s next victim.

A Bone to Pick: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery stars Candace Cameron-Bure (Full House) as Aurora Teagarden, Lexa Doig (Jason X) as Sally, Marilu Henner (Taxi) as Aida, Bruce Dawson (Hollow Man II) as John, Peter Benson (Smokin’ Aces 2: Assassins’ Ball ) as Arthur, Sonya Salomaa (MXP: Most Xtreme Primate) as Marcia Rideout, Dan Payne (A Christmas Story 2) as Torrance Rideout, Miranda Frigon (A Cookie Cutter Christmas) as Lynn Liggett, and Stephen Huszar (12 Men of Christmas) as Father Scott Aubrey. It’s directed by Martin Wood (Goodnight for Justice: Queen of Hearts) and the adapted by Teena Booth (The Grim Sleeper).

A Bone to Pick: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery premieres April 4th on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries!

Jason X (Review)

Jason X


2000
Starring
Kane Hodder as Jason Voorhees/Uber-Jason
Lexa Doig as Rowan
Chuck Campbell as Tsunaron
Lisa Ryder as Kay-Em 14
Peter Mensah as Sgt. Brodski

Jason Voorhees returns for the tenth go around, this time, in space! Yes, in the grand tradition of Critters 4, Leprechaun 4, That one Hellraiser movie, Pigs in Space, and Dracula 3000, this horror franchise has to cut it’s teeth on the depths of space as well. And what lovely teeth they are. Teeth, that just look amazingly like Aliens. Heck, the screenwriter even named a character after a character from Alien, Dallas, who he played in this movie. Basically, we got Jason taking the place of facehuggers and tongue-stabbers. We get some neat bloody kills, some future technology jokes, a film that doesn’t take itself too seriously, a body count bigger than all the other films (I’m guessing the space station had a lot of people on it), a hot lead, Uber-Jason, lame puns, naked babes, and hot machete action. Let’s dive in!
