Check out a bit of sci-fi horror online

Time was you had to wait until a movie played in the theaters to see it. And if you missed it, then you had to wait — and hope for — a second run. When I was a kid, that usually meant a screening at the local drive-in.

Then they started showing second (or third) runs on television. Which, when it comes to network (and even some cable) television networks, usually means truncated and censored versions.

Now, however, you have television On Demand services. Or Internet services. Either of which can, in some cases, give you access to film sometimes the same day as, sometimes even before, a film's theatrical release.

Such is the case with "Europa Report," a sci-fi horror/thriller about exploration of Jupiter's fourth-largest moon. You can check out the trailer below.
