The Return of the Living Dead: Collector's Edition - Blu-ray ReviewThank you, Scream Factory for this updated treat! Operating as neither a sequel to or a part of George A. Romero’s Zombie series, The Return of the Living Dead doesn’t really profess to be much of anything…except a hell of a lot of gory fun.  That doesn’t...

The Fantastic Films of Ray Harryhausen - Blu-ray ReviewWith a ceremonial crashing of cymbals, Bernard Herrmann’s thunderous score – completely without the use of strings - kicks off the drama and stop-motion wonder in Jason and the Argonauts.  Directed by Don Chaffey (of Pete’s Dragon and One Million Years B.C. fame)   ...

Carnival of Souls (1962) - Blu-ray ReviewCentron Corporation.  You’re probably more familiar with their output then you are with their name.  Housed in Lawrence, Kansas, this is the production company that supplied school districts across the United States with hundreds of educational films once viewed via film ...

Doctor Mordrid (1992) - Blu-ray ReviewDoctor Mordrid: Master of the Unknown is not a very good movie. Even on our pint scale of beer it earns the lowest ranking possible. It’s just lazy, lazy filmmaking on a project that, had there been a bit more effort put into its script and, well, everyone involved, could  ...

Suture - Blu-ray ReviewThere is something incredibly haunting about Scott McGehee and David Siegel’s feature-length debut.  Shot in black-and-white and filmed in and around the Phoenix area, Suture is a neo-film noir examination into a person’s identity.  What makes a person know themselves?  ...

The Swinging Cheerleaders - Blu-ray ReviewFor anyone who hates on exploitation film auteur Jack Hill’s The Swinging Cheerleaders for its objectification of women – namely cheerleaders – there’s a need for a brief lesson in film and cultural history.  Made during the 1970s, Hill’s movie was a very tough and very real examination of powerful  ...

The Alien Factor - blu-ray reviewI freakin’ love The Alien Factor.  Filmed in Baltimore, Maryland by a bunch of freaks and geeks, the schlocky film is a throwback to the classic run of 1950’s creature features and has just the right amount of humor and gore to make it worth revisiting time and time again  ...

Mysterious Island (1961) - Blu-ray ReviewRay Harryhausen’s stop-motion work in Mysterious Island is the stuff of legend AND nightmares.  Featuring memorable attacks from a gigantic crab, an oversized bee, a large prehistoric bird, and an angry snail, the fantasy kept many a young person up at night.  It also  ...

Return of the Killer Tomatoes - Blu-ray ReviewPicture it.  Two men are sitting across from each other at a table in a diner.  Their conversation is quick and intense.  One is a very panicked Anthony Starke (best known for his role as the third-person speaking Jimmy in the Seinfeld episode “The Jimmy”) and the other is a  ...

Jeepers Creeper II - Blu-ray ReviewOne would have to dig clear through the classic era of Universal Monster Movies in order to find a title that is a Jeepers Creepers equivalent in tone, structure, and suspense.  And that’s a good thing.  Writer/director Victor Salva explores his love of classic creature features  ...
