xXx: The Return of Xander Cage - Movie ReviewKeep that foot on the gas. Apparently, Vin Diesel has enough machismo left in the tank to take lead position in yet another revved-up and frenetic franchise. Xander Cage, extreme sports hero and sometimes government spy (last seen in 2002), has returned to motorcycle surf  ...

Ben (1972) - Blu-ray Review“Where Willard ended, Ben begins,” is the promise on the original poster for the quick sequel to the unexpected hit that was Willard.  Unfortunately, Ben was doomed the minute Willard ended. No matter which way you look at it, Ben, the sequel to Willard, is just not a very good ...

Willard (1971) - Blu-ray ReviewRats. Why’d it have to be rats. Willard Stiles.  Now, there’s a character for horror fans to discuss and nibble over.  Portrayed by Bruce Davison, this socially inept character is ridiculously  ...

Steets of Fire (1984) Collector's Edition - Blu-ray ReviewConfession time, Boils and Ghouls!  I grew up  - even as fat as I was – wanting to be Michael Paré’s cool as a cucumber Tom Cody from Streets of Fire.  Most my age wanted to be cracking shit with a bullwhip and making off, just like Indiana Jones,  with golden idols and ...

Blackenstein (1973) - Blu-ray ReviewGet that jar of Johnson’s Afro Sheen ready, brothers and sisters!  The blowout kit will be needed in order to survive this freakishly tall tale of laser beam fusion and wonky genetic theories. Blackenstein, courtesy of Severin Film, is back on the creep (oh ah, oh ah, ...

Popcorn: Collector's Steelbook Edition (1991) - Blu-ray Review“Come into my head.  Come into my head.  COME INTO MY HEAD,” is the hypnotizing command from the crispy mouth of Lanyard Gates, who killed his family and set fire to his own theater.  It is a beckoning for aspiring film writer Maggie Butler (Jill Schoelen) and a challenge ...

Scream and Scream Again (1970) - Blu-ray ReviewBelieve it or not, the very first time actors Vincent Price, Christopher Lee, and Peter Cushing were in the same film together was in 1970 with Scream and Scream Again.  While only two of the three horror icons share screen time together, their appearance in this weird title ...

The Void - Blu-ray ReviewDo I dare say it?  Do I dare suggest such blasphemy?  I do.  In my opinion, we’ve just witnessed the next evolution of horror with the release of The Void.  It is a film that matches, frame for frame, the otherworldly bizarreness and esoteric terror of Clive Barker’s Hellraiser ...

Serial Mom (1994) Collector's Edition - Blu-ray Review“Honey, look! I made a killing,” exclaims Beverly Sutphin as she marches hurriedly back to her daughter’s booth with a black fire poker in her hand.  She’s as clueless as she is psychotic and the hilariously long line of cop cars that follows her on the way to church is proof enough ...

The Mad Magician - Blu-ray ReviewDirector John Brahm knows how to create mood.  I praised his efforts in my reviews for The Lodger and The Undying Monster, but with Vincent Price in 1954’s The Mad Magician, he adds a new dimension to terror.  By mixing the 3D technology of the time period with shockingly ...
