Untamed Heart (1993) - Blu-ray Review

A baboon’s heart, hockey, and one hell of a sweet story.  That’s what you STILL get with Untamed Heart, now making its blu-ray debut  Caroline (Marisa Tomei) has too good of a heart.  So say her friends.  And, judging by how happy she is to ...

Detour (1945) - Blu-ray

Mesmerizing pulp fiction.  There simply is no other way to describe the powerful impact of Detour, a low budget gem from Poverty Row Pictures. Truthfully, the movie shouldn’t work as well at it does ...

The Body Snatcher (1946) - Blu-rayVal Lewton, making 1940s B-flicks look nothing like other horror films of the 1940s, is a certifiable genius of the cinema.  His ability to plunge audiences straight into nightmares is uncanny.  Madness and death, there’s our recurring fear factor in   ...

The Kid Brother (1927) - Blu-rayStill considered today to be one of Harold Lloyd’s finest films, The Kid Brother makes its debut on blu-ray thanks to the the Criterion Collection.  It is, of course, one of Lloyd’s sweetest and funniest films, with more sight gags than his others, in which Lloyd plays Harold Hickory ...

In the Cold of the Night - Blu-rayTo this day, there remains something insanely special about director Brian De Palma’s Carrie.  It is based on the once-discarded novel by Stephen King, but was painstakingly adapted for the screen by Lawrence D. Cohen.  Cohen got everything about King’s first novel right  ...

Showdown (1993)

“Why are there potatoes on the board every day?  Who took my desk?  Put that knife away!” If your high school was anything like the knife-wielding, gun-toting, slingshot-carrying school that is featured in Showdown then, man, you just might ...

The Suckling (1990) - Blu-rayWhen in doubt, Big Mama knows!  This is what happens when AWFUL becomes ART. I can hear the pro-lifers waxing poetic about this trashterpiece now.  A woman’s aborted fetus attacks her ...

The Witches (1966)

He will EAT your soul! That’s the threat that is received when The Witches, a supernatural horror film from Hammer Studios, opens as a school teacher at a mission school in Africa is quickly packing her things.  There is trouble afoot and the tribal drums are an indicator ...

...

What Doesn't Kill Us (2019)What if the Zombie Apocalypse failed?  What if the miracle of science saved both the survivors and those that were turned? ...

The Deadly Mantis (1957) - Blu-rayWith all its talk of radars and Pine Tree Radar Fences, it’s a wonder that The Deadly Mantis, warning of a sneak attack across the polar ice (by anyone), manages to be so much fun.  STILL!  But, honestly, few things in the cinematic world beat the scene where the giant insect ...
