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  ...

Highway to Hell - Blu-ray ReviewWhen a young couple decides to elope and marry in Vegas, the road they take drags them straight into hell itself.  Literally.  Highway to Hell is an engaging and campy tale of just how far one man will go for the women he loves.  There is weirdness and laughs all around him  ...

Sonny Boy 1989 - Blu-ray ReviewSonny Boy is, thankfully, a relatively unknown movie.  I say thankfully because if more people knew about director Robert Martin Carrol’s screwed up flick, there would be hell to pay when it came to morality codes and such things as good, decent taste.  Few people   ...

Howl (2015) - Blu-ray ReviewLet’s go ahead and give the British the coveted award for best werewolf movie in quite a long while.  It is much deserved.  Howl, directed by make-up effects wiz Paul Hyett (The Seasoning House), is quite an effective independent feature with a rollicking cast of hairy  ...

The Ice Pirates - Blu-ray ReviewWarner Bros – as part of their Archive Collection – simply do not realize or appreciate some of the lesser-known gems they have on their hands. With the bare-boned blu-ray release of The Ice Pirates, their misunderstanding of this science fiction comedy is as audible as it ...

Axe/Kidnapped Coed - Blu-ray ReviewWhen we get to the films of director Frederick R. Friedel let it be known that we are in very special B-movie territory. Inspired equally by the eye of Orson Welles and the taste of Roger Corman, Friedel and his gang of film conspirators combined their talents and put North   ...

Yongary, Monster From the Deep (1967) - Blu-ray ReviewSouth Korea’s first entry into the kaiju movie genre is probably the sole reason to ever pick up a copy of Kino-Lorber’s 1080p treatment of Yongary, Monster from the Deep and that truly is ONLY if you are nut about the genre. Believe me when I tell you that this is a monster   ...

The Phantom From 10,000 Leagues (1955) - Blu-ray Review…in which the origins of American International Pictures are unearthed… B-movies, quite literally, do not get any worse than with the events depicted inside The Beast of 10,000 Leagues.  Born from America’s post WWII fears, the quick look at the nuclear-made ...
