Originally hailing from Northern New Jersey, Eric's first big screen memory is freaking out at a screening of Naked Gun 2 1/2 - specifically when Frank Drebin gets an electric toothbrush shoved in his mouth and foam starts spewing out. He, fortunately, recovered from that incident, eventually becoming fascinated with film to an arguably unhealthy degree. He's the longest tenured full-time member of the CinemaBlend team, becoming an editor in June 2010, and his exciting rantings and ramblings about all things superhero movie and TV related can be heard on the HeroBlend podcast and Facebook Live show.

reviews Eric Eisenberg 2019-06-20 0 comments Child's Play Review The new Child’s Play isn’t exactly deep (despite its attempts at commentary about our computer-obsessed lives), and it does drag a bit in places – but when it works it works, and by the end of its 90 minute runtime you feel sufficiently entertained.
