The Naked Cage - Blu-ray ReviewLooking for a quick study of the attitude and overall swagger of the 1980s?  Few things are as tonally expressive AND summative as the opening few minutes of this flick when it comes to the 1980s heyday.  Look no further ...

The Corpse Vanishes \ Bowery at Midnight - blu-ray reviewWhile Bela Lugosi’s residency making poverty row pictures was relatively short-lived, there were a handful of solid horror titles he made that originally went ignored.  The Corpse Vanishes, doubling down on the genuine weirdness of an aging couple obsessed with  ...

Beyond the Gates - Blu-ray ReviewIt’s time to go back; back to the 1980’s.  It was a time when the videocassette ruled everything.  The sticker advising us to “Be Kind, Rewind” was stuck to every case.  Sometimes, we did and other times, well, we were kind of in a hurry to get the damn thing back to the video ...

Virus (1999) - Blu-ray ReviewNail guns and cyborgs are always a deadly combination.  Ouch. Toward the end of the 1990s, there were a slew of disaster pictures concerning everything from the end of the freakin’ world to computers losing their shit.  It seemed that everyone wanted to weigh in on Y2K.  Off-screen ...

Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone - Blu-ray ReviewIt was the first movie I ever saw in 3-D.  Friggin’ SpaceVision as I recall.  For that reason and others (involving the sheer joy of the flick), I freakin’ love director Lamont Johnson’s Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone.  LOVE IT.  To me, it is Canuxploitation ...

Exterminator 2 - Blu-ray ReviewBurn, baby, burn! Cannon Films, man.  What a run they had.  From American Ninja to Delta Force and beyond, for many a teenager growing up in the 1970s and the 1980s, they were the source for high-flying action.  I mean, who doesn’t love Stallone taking names and ...

The Hound of the Baskervilles (1959) - Blu-ray ReviewTo 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  ...

From Hell it Came (1957) - Blu-ray ReviewA Tree of Terror!  Americans in peril!  Radioactive typhoons!  Jungle Witchcraft!  From Hell It Came promises and delivers a total atomic age … bomb.  No wonder then that this film was the last monster picture to be created by the Milner Bros.  There’s no coming back from ...

Rollerball (1975) - Blu-ray Review"I love this game, Moonpie.  I love it." A dark arena fills the picture.  Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D minor fills our ears as two teams enter the rink.  The teams are Houston and Madrid and the game they are about to play is called Rollerball, a violent sport centered ...

The Screaming Skull (1958) - Blu-ray ReviewThis film might kill you.  Honestly, truer words have seldom been spoken.  The banging window.  The knocking on the door.  Don’t investigate it, Jenni (Peggy Webber), just leave it alone.  Webber could be your plainspoken Auntie, folks, and you definitely don’t want anything ...
