Movie Review: Beautiful Creatures Starring Alden Ehrenreich, Alice Englert

Posted: February 14, 2013 at 9:33 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

When I first saw the preview for Beautiful Creatures, I was very intrigued. I have not read the young adult book that it is adapted from, so I automatically thought it looked like a Twilight type of film – since they do have some similarities. As I am a fan of the “Twilight” books, I […]
