The Boy Who Cried Werewolf - Blu-ray ReviewReleased in 1973 as the bottom-half of a double feature, The Boy Who Cried Werewolf never could match wits with its running mate, Sssssss.  Both were creature features.  Both were low budget offerings.  Both were weird enough, yet cult filmmaker Nathan Juran (Attack   ...

hellhole (1985) - blu-ray ReviewI am sure there are some people involved in director Pierre De Moro’s Hellhole that wish the film did not still exist. The truth is that the cinematic sleaze contained in this flick almost didn’t survive the ravages of time. Culled together from the best sources available, Scream  ...

William Castle Double Feature: 13 Ghosts & 13 Frightened Girls (1960, 1963) - Blu-ray ReviewWilliam Castle never met a gimmick he didn’t like. Known for filling theaters with anxious audiences, his gimmicks, whether they be 13 Ghosts’ special Dr. Zorba ghost viewer or the auditioning of girls from different countries to be in 13 Frightened Girls, he knew how to sell  ...

William Castle Double Feature: Homicidal & Mr. Sardonicus (1961)When we get to any discussion on the films of William Castle, there are so many to consider that it becomes overwhelming.

The Return of the Living Dead: Collector's Edition - Blu-ray ReviewThank you, Scream Factory for this updated treat! Operating as neither a sequel to or a part of George A. Romero’s Zombie series, The Return of the Living Dead doesn’t really profess to be much of anything…except a hell of a lot of gory fun.  That doesn’t...

The Fantastic Films of Ray Harryhausen - Blu-ray ReviewWith a ceremonial crashing of cymbals, Bernard Herrmann’s thunderous score – completely without the use of strings - kicks off the drama and stop-motion wonder in Jason and the Argonauts.  Directed by Don Chaffey (of Pete’s Dragon and One Million Years B.C. fame)   ...

Carnival of Souls (1962) - Blu-ray ReviewCentron Corporation.  You’re probably more familiar with their output then you are with their name.  Housed in Lawrence, Kansas, this is the production company that supplied school districts across the United States with hundreds of educational films once viewed via film ...

Doctor Mordrid (1992) - Blu-ray ReviewDoctor Mordrid: Master of the Unknown is not a very good movie. Even on our pint scale of beer it earns the lowest ranking possible. It’s just lazy, lazy filmmaking on a project that, had there been a bit more effort put into its script and, well, everyone involved, could  ...

Suture - Blu-ray ReviewThere is something incredibly haunting about Scott McGehee and David Siegel’s feature-length debut.  Shot in black-and-white and filmed in and around the Phoenix area, Suture is a neo-film noir examination into a person’s identity.  What makes a person know themselves?  ...

The Swinging Cheerleaders - Blu-ray ReviewFor anyone who hates on exploitation film auteur Jack Hill’s The Swinging Cheerleaders for its objectification of women – namely cheerleaders – there’s a need for a brief lesson in film and cultural history.  Made during the 1970s, Hill’s movie was a very tough and very real examination of powerful  ...
