White Boy Rick (2018) - Movie ReviewSet in the bombed-out husk of 1980’s Detroit, White Boy Rick tells the rather incredible true story of Rick Wershe, Jr., a down-and-out kid who became the youngest ever FBI informant at the tender young age of 14  ...

The Day Time Ended (1979)What’s that funny thing behind the barn?  That’s what Jenny (Natasha Ryan, in a performance that steals the picture away from the rest of the cast) wants to know.  It’s green; it glows; it makes noise and somehow, maybe due to this house’s desert location, this triangle-shaped object is connected to ...

Mid90s - Movie Review

There’s no grand message in Mid90s, the heartfelt new film written and directed by actor Jonah Hill who takes his first turn at bat behind the camera. And there’s really not much of a story either. This sincere little coming of age film is perfectly content to simply sit back and ...

The Believers (1987)There is a lot I remember from originally seeing The Believers in 1987 for the first time.  That was years ago, but the thing that struck me – and continues to be striking (especially after watching this release from Olive Films) – is its opening sequence: Martin Sheen on a run with ...

AXL - Blu-ray ReviewOnce again, I do NOT get the critical backlash against this Amblin-esque tale of a boy and his dog.  A-X-L rocks.  I mean, for those teens out there that are forever the outcast or picked on by the assholes of the world out there then this movie   ...

Monster on the Campus (1958)We all know that college can change a young man.  Most of us revert into sex-starved beasts on the prowl.  Some of us conform to the peer pressure around us.  Regardless of the good or the bad, life on a college campus is often times unplanned, unscripted, and full of primates.  Which makes a film as loopy  ...

Bad Times at the El Royale - Movie ReviewNothing in Bad Times at the El Royale is as it seems. Not the story, not the characters, not even the hotel itself as it sits astraddle the Nevada-California state line and wears the duality of its colliding worlds of past and present as a cherished badge of honor. ...

Night of the Creeps (1986)Writer/Director Fred Dekker is a hero of mine when it comes to making memorable films.  From Night of the Creeps to Monster Squad, Dekker has created some of my all-time favorites.  It would be hard to imagine my upbringing without his wicked sense of humor and stylish wit.  Thankfully, after waiting a bit longer than I would have preferred ...

A Simple Favor - Blu-ray Review

Nancy Drew knows too much.  There is an elegance to the mystery that surrounds A Simple Favor.  It is made so much richer thanks to the performance from Anna Kendrick who, once again, nails her character with her quirky energy and down to earth nature.  With ...

Eli Roth's Green Inferno - Blu-rayWriter/director Eli Roth (Cabin Fever, Hostel I & II, and Aftershock) might just need to be crowned the new King of Putrid.  A self-confessed connoisseur of gore and Grindhouse alum, Roth’s work in the genre is living proof that the exploitation flick is not forgotten and definitely ...

Death Kiss - Movie ReviewCharles Bronson is back! Our fearless avenging angel has taken to the streets once again to kick a whole lot of criminal ass. Thank GOD. I already feel safe knowing that his 32-caliber nickel Colt revolver is blazing out of its 4-inch barrel again ...

Lost Highway (1997)That lone and long highway.  The flickering camera as it cruises at high speeds on a dark night down it.  The warbling, frenetic sounds as David Bowie softly croons, “I’m Deranged.”  Yes, Lynch’s Lost Highway, and its videotaped while sleeping situation is back and this time it’s challenging ...

Venom - Blu-ray Review“Wow.  I have a parasite,” says Eddie to the clerk.  He just ATE a man threatening her with a gun.  She's speechless.  What better words could there be to describe Eddie Brock’s transformative condition?   “I am NOT a parasite,” roars the raging monster within him.  We hear  ...

Nightbeast (1982) Blu-rayEmerging from deep space, an alien craft skims and skips across the night sky.  The campers below see it burst into flames as it comes crashing into the woods nearby.  Startled, they grab their shotguns and go out to see what the hell it was that crashed.  Only the alien, armed with a deadly ...

Mission: Impossible - Fallout - Blu-ray ReviewIf there’s anything to be said about the Mission: Impossible franchise it is that it lives up to its name by continuing to defy the odds with its little game of self oneupmanship – each new installment seemingly doing the impossible by keeping the franchise alive, viable, and  ...

Angel Unchained (1970) Blu-rayDonald Lee Stroud.  Actor.  Surfer.  Drummer.  Is there anything this screen legend of B-grade motion pictures can’t do?  According to Angel Unchained, a biker flick directed by Lee Madden, a pro at making biker-themed action flicks, there really isn’t anything or anyone Stroud as Angel ...

Smallfoot - Blu-rayTo this day, there remains something insanely special about director Brian De Palma’s Carrie.  It is based on the once-discarded novel by Stephen King, but was painstakingly adapted for the screen by Lawrence D. Cohen.  Cohen got everything about King’s first novel right  ...

Universal Horror Collection - blu-rayKarloff.  Lugosi.  What’s not to love about this pairing?  Absolutely nothing at all and the proof is Scream Factory's new 2K scanned release of the films that make up the Universal Horror Collection, Volume One. ...

The Nun (2018) - Movie ReviewWhen it comes to matters of horror, religion will always be mined.  Life and death and the quest for what’s on the other side, right? The Nun, the latest spinoff from The Conjuring series, has been spooking people with its trailers for quite some time.  The film; however ...

The Monolith Monsters (1957)

It is an invasion that never ends!  From Shout! and Scream Factory, The Monolith Monsters arrives to once again stomp out all those poor souls unfortunate enough to run into (or over) strange, black fragments of meteors that have fallen to earth.  Once exposed to water ...

Ant-Man and the Wasp - Movie ReviewIn the post-Thanos world of the MCU, it’s nice to be welcomed into the comforting arms of a film we can simply sit back and enjoy. And that’s certainly the case with Ant-Man and the Wasp, a fast-paced, funny, superhero romp that is light on emotion and heavy on humor ...

Shredder (2001)

Big air!  And even bigger coffee stains.  Wait.  What?  Horror has hit the slopes as a low-grade B-flick finds its footing (again) on blu-ray ...

Kin (2018) - Movie ReviewBorn from the pages of a short story, bottle fed on the milk of science fiction, raised on a road trip, and nurtured in the loving bosom of family drama, the new movie Kin is a curious but frustrating conglomeration of many genres. Certainly an ambitious undertaking from filmmaking ...

The Entity (1982)It just might be one of the scariest ghost movies I have ever seen.  There are few words to describe the sheer terror that this film, a classic tale of the supernatural, stirs up within me.  Time to keep one eye open in the night again, because The Entity is back in action, doing what it does best: terrifying audiences of all ages. ...

The Meg (2018) - Movie ReviewThe end of the summer season is upon us, Moviegoers.  What better way to celebrate the last hurrah of silliness then with a mega-sized shark causing all sorts of chaos at the cinema?  True, The Meg – about a 75-foot-long prehistoric shark known as the Megalodon ...

Ghostbusters 1 & 2 SteelbookDie-hard Ghostbusters fans, rejoice!  What’s old NEVER goes out of style. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has done us a solid with their handling of the classic two films in the Ghostbusters franchise.  That’s right, the original team ...

Skyscraper (2018) - Movie ReviewAmputees attack! If you are reading this then you are probably wondering if Dwayne Johnson’s new action flick is as yet another brainless actioneer.  Skyscraper is EXACTLY that.  Dumb.  Stupid.  Shameless. The movie, defying gravity and logic time and ...

Leprechaun Returns (2019)

Where’s my gold?!  And just like that the leprechaun that has headlined his own horror series across eight movies returns.  Except this film, pulling a Halloween circa 2018, doesn’t want you to remember that the Leprechaun went to Vegas, to outer space, and to the hood ...

Disobedience - DVD When successful New York photographer Ronit (Rachel Weisz) finds out that her rabbi father died, she flies home to London and stays with her married friends, Dovid (Alessandro Nivola) and Esti (Rachel McAdams). The rest of the Orthodox Jewish community is  ...

Shaft (2000)

“It's my duty to please the booty.”  And just like that Samuel Jackson steals the character of Shaft from Richard Roundtree, who played the character for three films.  Or maybe he just continues to carry the ...
