Beat the Devil (1953) - Blu-ray ReviewOkay, okay, okay, Uranium deals in East Africa might not sound all that exciting, but when your business associates are Humphrey Bogart, Robert Morley, Peter Lorre, Gina Lollobrigida, Jennifer Jones, and your location is Italy’s scenic Amalfi Coast, well you have the attention  ...

Screamers (1996) - Blu-ray

"Can I come with you?"  Are the people around you really who they claim to be?  This reality-bending question is at the heart of Screamers, a quiet little science fiction movie that, once seen, tugs at the back of the consciousness far more effectively than ...

Suburbia - Blu-rayCould there be anything more punk than producer Roger Corman hiring director Penelope Spheeris (Wayne’s World) in 1983 to direct a movie about youth alienation in Los Angeles?  I think not.  Call it Punxploitation; call it a walk on the wild side of safe suburban homes ...

10 to Midnight: Collector's Edition - Blu-rayIt is a film that Roger Ebert eviscerated with his review, taking the moral high ground and shaming 10 to Midnight for its portrayal of sex, violence, and the female condition.  He also took to the review to suggest that Charles Bronson was just showing up for a paycheck.  And,  ...

Cobra: Collector's Edition - Blu-rayMarion “Cobra” Cobretti is back on the streets.  Wearing his Judas Priest-styled sunglasses, a must for ANY badass in the 1980s, and taking out any number of axe-swinging maniacs, his beat on the street gets a major visual HD upgrade thanks to Shout! Factory’s Collector’s  ...

Sheborg (2016) - Blu-ray

Part Woman. Part Machine. Total Destruction. When was the last time we had a female kickass alien cyborg film?  It’s been a hot minute since, hmm, 1993.  Which is why SheBorg (originally released as SheBorg Massacre, a better title if you ask me) immediately grabbed my ...

Nurse Jill (2016) - Blu-rayBecause sometimes the act of revenge is stronger medicine than actually doing it.  Sometimes. The 16mm footage.  The dialogue cards.  The city atmospheres.  Everything about Nurse Jill, including its smaller than small  ...

Last Action Hero: Retro VHS Look (1993) - blu-rayThe wink and the nod begins with the opening sideways shot as a cop car arrives on the scene.  Swiftly, the camera corrects itself and a barrage of cops, all apparently having the worst night of their lives, arrives.  The camera glides over the response to the hostage scene that is ...

The Plague of the Zombies (1966) - Blu-rayYou will NEVER forget the first seen ashen-faced zombie (Ben Harris) in this movie.  I promise you.  That cackle!  That expression!  It is a scene, in which the zombie chucks a woman’s body over a ledge, that will linger with you thanks to the crazed look glued on the face of ...
