Hobgoglins (1988) - Blu-ray ReviewReputation Road, here we come!  With that sentence, a young man’s wildest sexual fantasies come true.  Overlooking Los Angeles from high in the hills, Kyle’s (Steven Boggs) attempts to get laid finally come to fruition thanks to the support of those zany fantasy-fulfilling  ...

Carrie: Collector's Edition - Blu-ray Review and DetailsNow, THIS is how you successfully pull off a B-movie. The Waxwork series of movies - Waxwork & Waxwork II: Lost in Time – were made during a very special time in the horror genre, all thanks to the video market. Celluloid magic was everywhere and distribution deals  ...

The Pit (1981) - Blu-ray ReviewWhen Canadians do horror, good things tend to happen. The Pit, directed by Lew Lehman, is a great example of that statement.   Released in 1981, this low budget horror film tells the tale of a weird kid who stumbles upon something stranger than himself deep in the  ...

Child's Play: Collector's Edition - Blu-ray Review and DetailsThere are few moments in the 1980’s output of horror titles as effective as the opening minutes of Tom Holland’s Child’s Play.  Serial-killer Charles Lee Ray (Brad Dourif), wearing a righteous brown trench coat, is being chased through the dingy streets of south Chicago  ...

Carrie: Collector's Edition - Blu-ray Review and DetailsTo 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  ...

The Hills Have Eyes (1977) - Blu-ray ReviewI am not a huge fan of Horror maestro Wes Craven.  I tend to check out of the whole adoration club when the discussion turns to his most recent offerings.  Yes, Scream included.  I just think that, of all the names in horror, his filmography is one of the spottiest.  ...

Astro Zombies - Blu-ray ReviewTo the outside eye, The Astro-Zombies is probably not regarded as the greatest of monster flicks.  Clocking in at 91-minutes, the b-grade entertainment at the center of this Mad Scientist tale is far too long.  Several scenes meander in and out of all rational thought as  ...

Bill & Ted's Most Excellent Collection - Blu-ray ReviewDude.  Talk about a blast from the past.  Duuuuude.  Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure is already a comedy classic from the latter part of the 1980s.  Had it failed to connect with audiences, there would be no Beavis & Butthead.  There would be no Wayne’s World.  While we ...

Hellbent: Limited Edition (1988) - Blu-ray ReviewVinegar Syndrome isn’t through with writer/director Richard Casey just yet.  Hot off the heels of their “loverly” HD handling of Horror House on Highway 5 comes his second feature, Hellbent.  This punkish fever dream is awash with neon splashes and a hyper-realized set   ...

It (1990) - Blu-ray ReviewHands down, It is the best killer clown movie around to ever roll out onto ANY screen.  The miniseries itself might be a tad uneven, but nothing beats Tim Curry’s performance as the killer clown haunting one small town in Maine. I am just going to assume that NO ONE – especially  ...
