The Mummy - Movie ReviewAs the undead do, Universal’s stable of legendary monsters rises from the cloak of darkness in the form of The Mummy, which is to be the first chapter in what the studio is calling the Dark Universe, its very own version of a cinematic franchise. Hey, Disney, Warner, and others  ...

The House With the Clock in its Walls - Blu-ray Review and DetailsThe wizarding world is alive and well thanks to this throwback kid’s flick from director Eli Roth.  You might recognize the name.  Roth is auteur behind the Hostel series, Knock Knock, and Green Inferno.  He’s a horror film guru, thanks to his “love it or leave it” attitude...

A Dark Song - Movie ReviewHow far would you go to break on through to the other side?  That answer probably depends upon the situation and the person.  All of which makes soaking in the sounds of A Dark Song so incredibly rewarding.  It is easily on par with The Witch when it comes to mood ...

Blood Harvest - Blu-ray ReviewHung upside down.  Swinging from the rafters of a barn.  It's a hell of a way to go.  Especially when stripped of your clothing.  The killer running loose here - with a stocking over his face - is seriously messed up.  ...

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 - Movie Review…in which writer/director James Gunn (Slithers) invites us to dance right alongside him to the deep cuts of the 1970s that he has playing on the turntable in his head AND heart.  Can I get an amen!  Our lovable ragtag gang of spaced invaders is back! ...

Mausoleum: Limited Edition - Blu-rayYou keep right on telling yourself there’s nothing wrong with Susan.  The glowing green eyes.  The high-pitched siren whenever she’s ‘”lit” and ready to go.  And then there is that mausoleum that is at the center of her family’s curse.  Strange things indeed are all up in this  ...

Alien: Covenant - Movie ReviewThough it took nearly 40 years, the Alien franchise has come full circle with the release of the latest chapter in the saga, Alien: Covenant, a film which picks up some ten years after 2014’s Prometheus and acts as a direct prequel to 1979’s original. That’s right, four decades after ...

Cutting Class (1989) - Blu-rayWant to watch a really young Brad Pitt (fresh from his Pringles commercial) nearly take out a toddler in his Mustang?  Or watch an overweight gym teacher get impaled on a trampoline by an American flag (still on the flag pole)?  Then this is the slasher for you!  ...

Going In Style - Movie ReviewWe’ve all been there. Aggravated to the breaking point by intolerable mistreatment from the man. There’s only so much one can withstand before the strings of sanity snap and we take matters into our own hands. More often than not, our level-headed decision making skills ...

Maniac: 3-disc limited edition - blu-rayDirector William Lustig (Maniac Cop), the current CEO of Blue Underground, has FINALLY gotten around to giving his own cult classic the deluxe treatment.  It’s about damn time, too.  This film, grisly and grim, is quite the achievement when it comes to low budget  ...

Munchies | Munchi - Blu-ray Review

. . . but still no Munchie Strikes Back. Scream Factory resumes their Double Feature blu-ray efforts with the super campy creature feature double attack of Munchies (from 1987) and Munchie (from 1992).  Hide the candy!  This twofer offers two cult films, operating like ...

The Fate of the FUrious - Movie poster one-sheetBig DUMB fun.  Amen to that. Look, at this point in the Fast and Furious franchise, you either “ride or die” with its ongoing vehicular antics or you simply thumb for another ride.  It’s really quite that simple.  The series has managed to win over most critics and even a few ...

Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation - Collector's Edition

Renée Zellweger.  Matthew McConaughey.  A bizarre chainsaw wielding family.  Leatherface.  The Illuminati.  Wait, wait, wait.  WHAT!? We were warned.  We didn’t listen.  This movie was always going to come out on Blu-ray and now, after months of preparation, the end ...

Saban's Power Rangers - Movie ReviewWell, Super Sentai it isn’t. As the bedrock of the kids’ television show, that’s not exactly a good thing for fans of the original series to hear. All is not yet lost, though. The rock quarry is back and so too is Bryan Cranston (who once voiced Snizzard from the popular television  ...

The Backlot Murders (2002) - Blu-ray ReviewIf it wasn’t for the over-the-top acting of Charles Fleisher (Who Framed Roger Rabbit) and Priscilla Barnes (Three’s Company), then The Backlot Murders, a satire of the horror genre, would be a total waste of your time.  But there’s a trick to  ...

The Belko Experiment - Movie ReviewEver complained about where you work? Ever wanted to kill a dumbass co-worker? Work sucks; it’s our god given right to bitch about it. At least, then, we don’t work for the sick company at the center of The Belko Experiment, who – proving just how fragile our society is ...

The Thing From Another World (1951) - Bluray

“Miss Nicholson . . . at 12:10am the hand became alive. . .” If ever those words are uttered around me when staring at a dismembered arm, you bet my ass is headed for the door . . . even if it is the icy breath of the North Pole ...

John Wick: Chapter 2 - Movie ReviewEvery single time Keanu Reeves is written off or dismissed, he comes bouncing back with a powerfully charged character.  Hell, he even got booed for his performance in Knock Knock.  I think I was one of the eight critics who gave him credit for knowing the  ...

Nail Gun Massacre - BlurayHow does the song go?  "Let the bodies hit the . . . BBQ grill?"  Because, yep, that's what happens in this seriously demented flick.  Are the steaks done already?!  Ready. Fire. Aim.  This Nail Gun Massacre has been reloaded ...

The Comedian - DVD ReviewJackie Burke (Robert De Niro) has fallen on hard times lately. He used to star in a hit sitcom, at the height of his comedy career. But now he barely gets by, relying on occasional nostalgic comedy shows and loans from his exasperated brother (Danny DeVito). During one ...

Doctor Who: Peter Davison - Somplete Season One

Classic Who.  The Beeb.  Blu-ray.  Newly remastered.  Need I say anymore? Because the new decade needed a new Doctor.  The changing of the guard – Tom Baker will always be MY Doctor – was inevitable, I suppose, for a long-running program ...

get out posterNoted comic and filmmaker Jordan Peele, of Key and Peele fame, marks his directorial debut with Get Out, a brilliantly quirky little film that bills itself as a speculative thriller.

The Swinging Barmaids (1975) - Blu-ray ReviewNasty girls in bunny suits!  Who needs ‘em?  Certainly not Tom (Bruce Watson).  Deciding early on that bosoms should always be well-covered, this strange dude goes on a one-man rampage in a seedy part of Los Angeles and delivers one savage attack after another ...

The LEGO Batman Movie - Blu-ray ReviewLeave it to LEGO to get Batman right. Forget DC’s cinematic universe of disappointments, man, because at this point in the game all they have is Wonder Woman.  Will Arnett’s vocal characterization of The Dark Knight is exactly what the stalled franchise needs after the two ...

The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy - Season OneGet your Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster glasses ready!  The drinking is about to commence with the release of this heralded (and still quite funny) six-episode television series on blu-ray!  As a manual, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, which has come in handy many ...

Fist Fight - Blu-ray ReviewFist Fight is the laziest and sloppiest “comedy” to come out of Hollywood in recent memory.  Mean-spirited and brutal, the film simply kills any and every chance it has at successfully being funny thanks to the over-the-top violence it embraces as two unhinged teachers ...

Force Five (1981) - Blu-ray

Thank God for Black and Decker!  Start laughing now because, with those words, one member of Force: Five, a "team" of martial arts experts (a term I use loosely here . . . even though this film is comprised of sports stars) assembled to rescue a senator’s daughter from a ...
