Descent Into Darkness - ReviewBecause safe is a state of mind. The first warning happens right in front of the Pompidou Centre when a tourist’s camera, while he is recording his thoughts on one of the best-known sights in Paris, is stolen by an unidentified male.  Hauling ass through a crowded...

One Million B.C. - Blu-ray ReviewThe movie begins with a lightning strike and then another.  A cascade of rain pounds against the backs and heads of a team of hikers who take shelter in a cave while the storm rages on.  It is there they meet the bearded narrator of One Million B.C.; an anthropologist ...

Disconnected (1984) - Blu-ray Review“I feel like I am stuck inside a low budget horror film,” says Carmine Capobianco as he stares into the camera.  He’s right, of course, he is stuck inside a low budget horror film and it is a glorious sight indeed to behold.  Disconnected might not make a whole lot of sense ...

The Violent Years (1956) - Blu-ray Review“I shot a cop . . . so what!” Good citizenship.  Self-restraint.  Politeness.  Loyalty.  These four words of social graces are written on a chalkboard that four girls pass by during the pre-credits scene in Ed Wood’s penned cult classic, The Violent Years.  They are four words that ...

Liquid Sky (1982) - Blu-ray ReviewOtherwise known as the world as metaphor.  When you talk about originality in cinema, you best not forget to mention filmmaker Slava Tsukerman.  Tsukerman, a soviet born artist who moved to New York City in 1973, created something unique with the release of 1982’s cult classic ...

The Dark (1979) - Blu-ray ReviewNot all alien encounters will be friendly.  That’s the assertion made in The Dark, a wildly uneven production that is underlined by a super paranoid-causing soundtrack featuring the spookiest use of marimbas to date AND haunting voices that repeatedly whisper and hiss ...

The Witchmaker (1969) - Blu-ray ReviewDeep in the Louisiana swamps, a strange man tackles a woman – who just stepped out of said swamp – to the ground.  She is killed, marked with a hex symbol, and hung upside down from a cypress tree by her feet.  She is then drained of her blood with a slash to her neck ...

The Haunting of Morella (1990) - Blu-ray ReviewWomen! Witchcraft! And b-movie maestro Jim Wynorski!  This tightlipped tale has it all. Producer Roger Corman always has been a big fan of Edgar Allan Poe.  Even before he made bank with his Poe pictures featuring Vincent Price, he was often returning to Poe’s ...

Ice Cream Man (1995) - Blu-ray Review“That’s what I call a brain freeze!” Clint Howard: the man, the myth, the legend.  Only he could bring the crazy character at the bottom of the Ice Cream Man to life and he does it with aplomb, clawing the change dumped by grubby hands into the bucket as he growls ...

Queen of Blood (1966) - Blu-ray ReviewThe Russians won the space race with the launch of Sputnik-1.  They quickly followed their success with a bunch of interesting science fiction flicks that caught the eye and interest of famed producer Roger Corman.  Some of these cinematic tales were peace offerings to  ...
