Review: “The<br />

Last Of Us”<br />

By Jaspreet Multani<br />

Designer and Reporter<br />

The Last of Us is a 2013 action-adventure survival horror<br />

video game developed by Naughty Dog and published<br />

by Sony Computer entertainment. This story is about a<br />

14-year-old girl, Ellie, and a brain infection survivor, Joel, in<br />

a post-apocalyptic United States. They both work together<br />

to survive on their journey across what remains of the country<br />

to find a possible cure for the modern fungal plague that<br />

has nearly decimated the entire human race.<br />

The Last of Us Part I is released in native 4K at 60<br />

FPS*and features on PS5. This series has a deep and complex<br />

narrative that players should probably be aware of before<br />

they start down Ellie’s path to bloody retribution. The<br />

first part was about Love, and the second one is all about<br />

hate, as “Naughty Dog” says. The upcoming series will be a<br />

darker continuation of the story, than the original.<br />

Netflix show<br />

is relatable<br />

By Blake Burton<br />

Reporter<br />

The Netflix series “Never Have I Ever” began with an<br />

Indian girl losing use her legs after sad death of her father<br />

Mohan(Sendhil Ramamurthy). The girl, Devi( Maitreyi Ramakrishnan),<br />

has to go through the first year of high school<br />

in a wheelchair, which wasn’t very fun for her.<br />

She is eventually able to get out of her wheelchair and was<br />

ready to mingle or have sex with none other than the most<br />

popular boy in school Paxton(Darren Barnet).<br />

Thought the characters are young, this is a show people of<br />

many ages would love. It involves heartbreaks, love, drama<br />

and more. Created by Mindy Kaling (writer, producer and<br />

star of “The Office” and creator of “The Mindy Project”),<br />

this show will have you watching it for hours just to see what<br />

is happens next.<br />

Anyone who has been through high school will relate to<br />

these characters on some level.<br />

It is so watchable, and audiences will want to find out what<br />

happens next for all of these characters.<br />

Horror prequels<br />

The Horror Files<br />

By Eduardo Jr. Martinez<br />

Reporter<br />

Eduardo, Jr. Martinez<br />

A prequel to a horror<br />

film was release this this<br />

month as “Orphan: first<br />

Kill” (<strong>2022</strong>) a prequel to<br />

“Orphan” (2009) center<br />

on the character Esther<br />

as she attempts to survive<br />

in a wealthy household<br />

while impersonating their<br />

lost daughter. This movie<br />

is not the first but the<br />

most recent introduction<br />

of horror movies prequels<br />

that seems to present a<br />

possible future for horror<br />

films and how horror prequels<br />

can be done right.<br />

Pervious horror movie<br />

prequels often carried a<br />

reputation of not being<br />

as good as their original<br />

counterpart, often missing<br />

the point surrounding<br />

why the movie is so horrifying,<br />

how the mystery<br />

plays a role within horror<br />

or, the fundamental aspects<br />

that made the original<br />

film enjoyable in the<br />

first place. Not only does<br />

a prequel movie have to<br />

deal with these factors,<br />

but they have to worry<br />

about building anticipation<br />

in new scenes and<br />

creating the fear of the<br />

unknown for something<br />

that the audience already<br />

have information about<br />

due to it being a prequel.<br />

“Orphan: First Kill” is<br />

a movie that I would consider<br />

to be equal or greater<br />

to the original with how<br />

it deals with emulating the<br />

plot twist of the original<br />

that dramatically changes<br />

the film, acknowledges<br />

the information that the<br />

audience already knows<br />

before watching and, understand<br />

why the audience<br />

are here to watch the<br />

film in the first place is for<br />

Esther.<br />

The movie really encapsulates<br />

the perfect<br />

horror prequel as it had<br />

a set course of where the<br />

movie is leading toward<br />

while providing audience<br />

with a new and entertaining<br />

experience that<br />

respects the original film.<br />

The flick opens up a<br />

door of opportunity for<br />

possible horror prequels<br />

that center around the<br />

slasher and their backstory<br />

such as “Pearl” a<br />

prequel to the film “X”<br />

(<strong>2022</strong>).<br />

Hopefully, the success<br />

of “Orphan: First Kill”<br />

and “Pearl” will spark a<br />

revival of horror prequel<br />

surrounding slashers such<br />

as, Freddy Krueger from<br />

“A Nightmare on Elm<br />

Street” series, Charles<br />

Lee Ray from “Child’s<br />

play” series and Pamela<br />

Voorhees from “Friday<br />

the 13th” series.
