The People That Time Forgot - Blu-ray ReviewWhen it comes to directing1970s fantasy/adventure films, Kevin Connor is definitely one of the genre’s mad geniuses.  After showing a very versatile set of skills in bringing dinosaurs back to life with aplomb in The Land that Time Forgot, he flexed hardcore alongside returning ...

Hired to Kill - Blu-ray ReviewOliver Reed.  George Kennedy.  Jose Ferre.  And action movie regular Brian Thompson (otherwise known as the alien bounty hunter in The X-Files).  What movie could possibly bring them together?  And for what reason?  Other than probably being unemployed at  ...

Cotton Comes to Harlem - Blu-ray ReviewAnyone's education in cinema involves stopping for a spell in New York City. While you are there, though, be sure to not skip out on the knowledge that can be gained by watching 1970's fascinating Cotton Comes to Harlem.  ...

Across 110th Street - Blu-ray ReviewBarry Shear's Across 110th Street remains a hard-hitting look at racial violence in the streets of New York City. Loaded with hundreds of F-bombs, there's no denying its visceral power and, while the film gets lumped in with a lot of other Blaxploitation flicks from the era, the  ...

Black Caesar (1973) - Blu-rayWritten and directed by Larry Cohen (The Stuff), Black Caesar is essentially a remake of 1931’s Little Caesar with Edward G.

Easy Rider - Blu-ray ReviewThe odds were not in Easy Rider's favor. Coming off of Roger Corman's The Wild Angels and the Jack Nicholson-penned The Trip, Peter Fonda was digging his heels into the counterculture scene. He and wild man Dennis Hopper, driven to tell another tale of  ...

Death Becomes Her - Blu-ray ReviewDeath Becomes Her is, ironically enough, getting a much longer shelf life than ever expected. After suffering from abysmally dismissive reviews at the time of its release, the black comedy is now celebrated as a cult flick. And why not? It's dark and twisted; definitely  ...

Dolemite - Blu-ray ReviewRudy Ray Moore is not an actor. He is not a master of Kung Fu either. He isn't even a pimp but his stand-up comedy took a legendary turn when he adopted the persona of Dolemite and started hilariously rapping and rhyming about sex and violence with a bravado that  ...

The Zero Boys - Blu-ray ReviewThe Zero Boys is a forgotten entry in the horror genre. While it has the abandoned cabin in the woods and a group of horny teenagers out looking for a good evening of fun, The Zero Boys throws together several different genres and winds up creating a blended atmosphere  ...

Sssssss (1973) - Blu-ray ReviewSssssss is a magnificent B-movie whose appreciation starts with the fact that you actually have to hiss its title.  It is a mad scientist movie about snakes; real snakes mind you.  I can’t stress that aspect enough.  While it might be fun enough for some to watch Battlestar ...
