Black Mama, White Mama - Blu-ray ReviewThere is a reason that Quentin Tarantino and Neveldine/Taylor consistently make Black Mama, White Mama more than just a reference point in their filmography.  The balance struck between humor and socio-political commentary is a steady one and continues to   ...

The Trip (1967) - Blu-ray ReviewWritten by Jack Nicholson, The Trip is director Roger Corman’s statement on the whole psychedelic scene of the 1960s.  It is more of an experience; however, than it is a film.  Much like Head, the trippy Monkees’ movie (which is far more interesting than it is given credit  ...

The Black Sheep (1956) - Blu-ray ReviewFans of mad scientist flicks rejoice!  The Back Sleep has arrived to cradle us in our darkest moments of fear and fury.  Starring a very notable cast, this B-movie was coupled with a lot of better B-movies during its brief theatrical run but it matters not because this release – from Kino Lorber no less  ...

Pieces (1983) - Blu-ray ReviewUgly, wildly unique and completely ridiculous in all its cheesy glory, Pieces, “directed” by Spanish filmmaker Juan Piquer Simon (Slugs: The Movie), is an exploitation slasher film that is as disturbing as it is obvious.  The dialogue is of an Ed Wood quality and the edits are as  ...

Howard the Duck - Blu-ray ReviewAfter Howard the Duck’s surprise appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy, I knew it was only a matter of time before Universal went into their vaults and hatched our fowl friend’s blu-ray debut for audiences.  And why not?  Thomas Dolby and George Clinton wrote the theme song ...

The Mutilator - Blu-ray ReviewWith lines like "that's strange, my dad's battleaxe is missing" and a copious amount of well-managed gore and humor, there's no denying that The Mutilator is EXACTLY what any true fan of horror could ever want in a flick. It even has a super-stylized Springsteen wannabe  ...

Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things - Blu-ray ReviewConfession time, children! Gather around. Closer, please. I'm going to whisper this to you before I spend an entire review proclaiming why. Here goes: I fucking love Bob Clark. From Porky's to A Christmas Story, the writer/director has a well-known penchant for comedy  ...

Vincent Price Collection Volume IIIVincent Price.  To put it mildly, there is no other actor alive today that can match the sheer weight of his importance in the horror genre.  No one.  Price, good or bad, was an absolute master at the macabre (in an entertaining way) and his involvement in any film   ...

The Curse of the Faceless Man - Blu-ray ReviewDirected by Edward Cahn (It! The Terror from Beyond Space and all those Our Gang shorts), Curse of the Faceless Man, like much of his science fiction-minded American International Pictures output, has moments of terror that can't be dismissed. His first film did inspire  ...

Sheba Baby - Blu-ray ReviewOnce upon a time ago, Pam Grier – with her name proudly resting ABOVE the titles – could sell a movie. Hell, she WAS the movie. What a powerful time in movie history that was; an African-American woman selling an action flick. Such is the case with William Girdler's  ...
