The Oblong Box - Blu-ray ReviewSwiping its title from an Edgar Allan Poe short story, The Oblong Box is American International Pictures’ answer to life after Roger Corman, who stopped his Poe & Price AIP film cycle in 1965.  This time, Gordon Hessler (The Golden Voyage of Sinbad), takes his first step behind  ...

The Return of Count Yorga - Blu-ray ReviewI have to say that in the vampire category of horror flicks there are very few I find to be actually worthy of a true scare.  The Return of Count Yorga is one of those.  This new age take on sunny Californian vampirism succeeds where the original near skinflick, Count Yorga  ...

Mosquito - Blu-ray ReviewRiddle me this. Besides being movies I like, what do Evil Dead II, Moontrap, Army of Darkness and John Woo's Hard Target all have in common? It's not Bruce Campbell. It's the not the splatterific amount of gore either...but close. It's special effects artist Gary Jones  ...

Gravy - Blu-ray ReviewOperating along the same guidelines as a raging bull in a china shop, James Roday’s directorial-debut Gravy, now appreciating a solid release on blu-ray thanks to Scream! Factory, is a gonzo-spirited horror-comedy that definitely does not disappoint.   This freewheeling comedy  ...

Rumble in the Bronx - Blu-ray ReviewWith the release of Jackie Chan’s Rumble in the Bronx and First Strike on blu-ray this week Warner’s back catalog of New Line titles finally begin their much-delayed martial arts HD rollout.  These are, mind you, bare-boned releases with a 2K visual upgrade and no special  ...

Slaughter (1972) - Blu-ray ReviewHailing from the early years of the Blaxploitation movement in cinema, Jim Brown in 1972’s Slaughter is one helluva serious bad ass.   He never smiles and puts EVERYONE in his or her place.  The film – as its blu-ray arrives this week courtesy of Olive Films – remains  ...

Eaten Alive (1977) - Blu-ray ReviewWith strong hues of murderous reds and neon blues, Tobe Hooper’s follow-up to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre has always been regarded as a stylized mess.  It is neither good enough nor horrible enough to dismiss without a second thought, though.  It is a movie that   ...

House of Long Shadows - Blu-ray ReviewWhile most of sexploitation director Pete Walker’s films (Die Screaming, Marianne, The Flesh and Blood Show, House of Whipcord) have been greeted with disgust and condemnation, House of Long Shadows is his – as far as the horror genre goes – his most noteworthy. Check  ...

Spaced Invaders - Blu-ray Review…in which we meet Invader ZIM’s inspiration. While perfectly harmless, Spaced Invaders is a kid’s movie that had the potential to be something a little bit more than a silly Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles knockoff. Halloween night. A War of the Worlds rebroadcast ...

Society - Blu-ray ReviewThe directorial debut from Brian Yuzna simply will not be silenced. It is, at once, disgusting and gratuitous and demented; however, its message about wealth and excess expands out beyond the yuppie influence of its origins and speaks volumes here in the golden age of  ...
