Badass B-movies

The Skull (1965) - Blu-ray ReviewStories about obsessive collectors have always fascinated me. From the book-hoarding stories I wrote during my undergraduate studies to the volumes of the weird and twisted objects I now own, it could be suggested that the fascination with collectors has become intrinsic ...

Ghost in the Shell (1995) - Blu-ray ReviewGeneration Xers called it cyberpunk.  During the 1990s, it was the "thing" that happened and we saw the early warning signs.  William Gibson locked it down on paper.  Even Billy Idol sang about it. Few science fiction films pouring out from Hollywood ever got the subgenre ...

Death Machines (1976) - Blu-ray ReviewDrive-in flicks are as badass as they are clueless.  I will argue to the death that it definitely takes talent to successfully pull off the B-movie. If you listen carefully to director Paul Kyriazi, it sounds like the cast and crew he assembled for Death Machines knew enough about  ...

When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth - Blu-ray ReviewAnd another caveman classic is upon us. Writer/director Val Guest’s When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth gets the Warner Archive Collection treatment for its blu-ray debut.  Essentially, all that means is that the film gets an HD transfer because the big boys still don’t know how ...

The Gate (1987) - Blu-ray ReviewMake no bones about it, Horror Hounds, The Gate is a MUST-HAVE release from Lionsgate’s handling of its on-going Vestron Video Collector’s Series.  Written by Michael Nankin and directed by Tibor Takács, The Gate was an unexpected success for New Century Vista Film Co. ...

Slaughterhouse (1987) - Blu-ray ReviewMost people are offended by the slaughter of animals. They like their bacon, mind you, but simply cannot deal with a defenseless pig being stunned, shaved, and then sliced and diced into tasty little strips of bacon. Yummy! For a lot of people slaughterhouses represent ...

Deadtime Stories (1986) - Blu-ray Review“It’s too dark! It’s too daaaaaark,” screams an eight-year-old boy. Bouncing on his bed, he is need of some bedtime stories to ease on into sleep. Unfortunately, his creeper of an uncle, Peter (Scott Valentine) is the only adult in the house and his idea of bedtime stories is ...

Joe Bullet (1972) - DVD ReviewWith Ken Gampu (The Gods Must Be Crazy) at the front of the action and the team in this soccer-centered exploitation classic, Joe Bullet arrives on home entertainment platforms for a whole new generation of badass cinema lovers to discover. Personally, I can think ...

Ape 3D Aka A*P*E (1976) - Blu-ray Review“Let's see him dance for his organ grinder now!” Holy Hell, Horror Hounds, does this flick ever stink! And by stink, I mean exactly that. Oh, don’t misinterpret me A*P*E is hysterical (and if drunk enough, I’m sure its even more of a riot), but mostly in the manner that suggests ...

Kinf Solomon's Mines (1985) - blu-ray reviewAlright, alright, alright. I get it. I TOTALLY understand why so many critics railed against this Indiana Jones wannabe action adventure flick when it was originally released. Starring Richard Chamberlain as Harrison Ford (kidding), King Solomon’s Mines is as shallow as B-movies ...
