Scalps (1983) - Blu-ray ReviewSix college students. A station wagon. An archaeological dig. And a tent. Those are the elements at play in 1983's uber-bloody Scalps. Written and directed by Fred Olen Ray (Deep Space), this effective horror flick is as minimalistic as it gets. It was filmed in mere days,  ...

Metalstorm: The Destruction Of Jared-Syn - Blu-ray ReviewWell, how neat-o is this, B-movie lovers?! Mad Max meets lasers … in 3-D! That’s the best way to describe this low-grade attempt to cash in on one of the most epic action flicks of my youth, The Road Warrior. Directed by Empire Pictures founder Charles Band (Parasite  ...

Mankillers (1987) - Blu-ray ReviewCellblock D. That’s where the best women are.

The Horrible Dr. Hitchcock - Blu-ray ReviewGothic horror gets its kink on in 1962’s The Horrible Dr. Hichcock. This is one of the movies that you really have to wonder how in the hell it got made.

The Monster of Piedras Blancas (1959) - Blu-ray ReviewBeheadings! Bosoms! Blood! Welcome to the dark side of the 1950s. Made for a mere $29000 in 1959, The Monster of Piedras Blancas looks like a million bucks in high-definition in 2016. Down with the fuzz. We want clarity in our Creature Features and Olive Films absolutely  ...

Road House (1989) - Blu-ray ReviewPerhaps there is no other movie that best exemplifies the highs and lows of the 1980s than 1989's Road House. It's got mullets, monster trucks, martial arts, naked chicks, big hair, and a bunch of white guys beating the living shit out of each other for no real reason ...

Blood Rage - Blu-ray ReviewWhen it comes to b-grade entertainment, there is literally NOTHING quite like 1987’s Blood Rage.  As ballsy as it is shoddy, this poorly acted slasher is in fact quite effective in is delivery of a twisted tale about twins and the psychotic mother who has the wrong son committed for murder  ...

Morgan - Movie Review...in which the whole Nature VS Nurture argument finally gets its hands bloody. Okay, so maybe Morgan isn’t all that original.  The story about an artificial intelligence  being raised in a laboratory and the human assigned to evaluate her when she goes rogue and actually...

Disco Godfather - Blu-ray Review"Put your weight on it, put your weight on it, put your weight on it,” shouts comedian Rudy Ray Moore as he spins the latest disco record on the dance floor for his patrons.  His tight powder-blue leotard flairs out at the feet and spreads wide across the chest.  Silver jewelry  ...

Psycho IV: The Beginning - Blu-ray ReviewAs fond as I am for Anthony Perkins’ acting talents, I have to say that Psycho IV: The Beginning is a film best suited for those looking to complete the Norman Bates experience only.  It is interesting in that it operates as a prequel and as a third sequel to the horror series at  ...
