Sequels in horror movies are as common as jump scares. However, a fourth movie in one franchise is impressive, and that is exactly what “Insidious: The Last Key” is. And it holds a twist: it is — wait for it — a prequel. While this is no surprise in today’s movie age, it was an odd choice for...

My driver’s license expired last Tuesday. I only had it for five years before the expiration date and I still failed to get it renewed on time. So I stroll on in to the DMV on Friday anticipating an extra late fee for not having been timely with my renewal. And then the lady at booth number one...
