Black Eagle (1988) - Blu-ray ReviewThis movie is proof that downed US F-111 bombers and curious little boys do not mix. Make no mistake about it, the MVD Rewind Collection absolutely saves this film from its VHS dustbin obscurity.  The cover art – featuring a “Be Kind Rewind” sticker on the front – is all sorts ...

Breakin'/Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo (1984) - Blu-ray ReviewYou can’t touch this!  Funny, charming, and definitely loaded with better moves than you’ve ever seen before, Breakin’ and its immediate sequel, Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo, find their way onto a sparkling and crisp 2fer blu-ray release from Shout Factory.  Because dance fighting ...

Fire Birds (1990) - Blu-ray Review“Cop a chill.  We are outta here!” Fire Birds, originally released in 1990, is the movie in which Tommy Lee Jones perfects being Tommy Lee Jones, the persona, and trains a motley crew of pilots in America’s war against drugs.  Fire Birds is also the movie where Nicolas Cage as  ...

Godmonster of Indian Flats (1973) - Blu-ray ReviewThis is a movie about a mutant 8-foot-tall sheep.  Let that image take root.  It is both disturbing, overstuffed, and hilarious.  For that reason alone, Godmonster of Indian Flants is a must-see B-movie designed especially for the cinematic freaks out there. The ground trembles   ...

Beat Street (1984) - Blu-ray ReviewBeat Street Breakdown, RUUUUUAHHHH!!!  Like it or leave it, Beat Street is back.  This is the film which for many, including the entire country of Germany, brought breakdancing out of the shadows, off the cardboard, and into everyone’s life ...

Call Girl of Cthulhu (2014) - Blu-raAaaaannnnnnd this is why boys should not fall in love with demon brides.  Human sacrifices.  Summoning ancient Gods.  And hookers giving birth to mutant monsters.  If demented killings with dildos and fan blades is your cup of homebrewed tea, then Call Girl of Cthulhu is  ...

Sasquatch: The Legend of Bigfoot - Blu-ray ReviewBigfoot Country is certainly very scenic and so full of wildlife that it certainly becomes a spectacle.  But, much life “squatching” itself, it can be a little … too quiet.  The lead-off movie in this grindhouse drive-in combo seems to be suffering from the “you had to be there” syndrome. ...

Devil Fish (1984) - Blu-ray ReviewEverybody out of the water!  The coast guard has just pulled another limbless (and lifeless) corpse out of the ocean.  What the hell is happening to all these fishermen with expensive ass boats? ...

The Last House on the Left (1972) - Blu-ray ReviewThere goes the neighborhood!  That’s what happens when horror itself crashes a couple’s evening when they discover that those they’ve invited in are responsible for their daughter’s grisly demise.  And then, thanks to writer/director Wes Craven and producer Sean Cunningham ...

After the Fall of New York (1983) - Blu-ray ReviewTo the victor, long life and happiness!  And, in a movie about the search for the last fertile human woman on the planet (with over 500 uncontaminated eggs in her ovaries), that life had better be a damn good one. Welcome to the New Middle Ages on this garbage dump of ...

Superfly (1972) - Blu-ray ReviewKnow this, brothers and sisters: the underworld ALWAYS drags you down. Curtis Mayfield knew how to hit you hard with his soft voice.  He knew all about challenges and what is right and wrong for a society ...

A Breed Apart (1984) - Blu-ray ReviewIt has to suck to watch a film suffer in its comprehension due to a missing reel. It almost screams of sabotage. But such is the case for A Breed Apart, now on blu-ray thanks to Shout Factory. Featuring Rutger Hauer protecting an island sanctuary and crawling nude ...

Terminal Island (1973) - Blu-ray ReviewCelebrities Tom Selleck and Roger Mosley, before they starred in Magnum P.I. together, were stuck on a different island located on a different sea. And it definitely was not as scenic as Hawaii. Well, Phyllis Davis (Sweet Sugar) was there so I guess there were definitely massive ...

Mary, Mary, Bloody Mary (1975) - Blu-ray ReviewThere is a disturbing loneliness that is central to this low budget horror flick from 1975.  Its subject matter is disturbing.  Its sexuality is raw.  It is a movie about a vampire with no fear of crosses or garlic.  And in Mexico, there is no escaping the sun.  An American Vampire  ...

The Curse of the Cat People - Blu-ray ReviewBecause sometimes that wild animal magnetism doesn’t stay dead. “We never have any fun with Amy.  She spoils everything,” is the general consensus about one young girl.  She’s a bit odd.  Her parents have noticed certain things in her that cause concern ...

Grave Robbers (1988) - Blu-ray ReviewSome girls have all the luck.  Nora Mae Edwards (Elizabeth Mannino), a bummed-out waitress at an all-night diner, just accepted an offer for marriage from a well-dressed dude who likes his women a little cold.  Okay, so maybe she’s not so lucky, but the dude ...

Body of Evidence (1993) - Blu-ray Review“Have you ever seen animals make love?”  The question is not as innocent as it sounds.  Neither is the answer.  Especially when Madonna, portraying a suspected bedroom murderer, is the one asking the questions.  She’s being accused of fornicating a rich man to ...

Black Candles (1982) - Blu-ray ReviewThe evil eye might be bad luck but so is jacking off a goat, Boils and Ghouls. Tread lightly. Welcome this version of a fleshy and fantasy-ridden Hell, mofos! It is a place where touching yourself is permitted! Woot woot! This is Rosemary’s Baby with more skin, more Satan ...

Cut-Throats Nine (1972) - Blu-ray Review

When the Italians go dark with their westerns, there’s no room for heroes. That’s what happens in Cut-Throats Nine, a serious-minded spaghetti western that is more Tarantino than the man himself. It is disturbed, gory, and twisted as hell and it tells one hell of a story ...

Night of the Lepus (2018) - Blu-ray ReviewRabbits.  They aren’t as cute as they seem.  Ask any Australian and they will tell you the truth: underground mutton.  In Night of the Lepus, now on blu-ray thanks to the horror hooligans over at Scream Factory, these furry critters grow and grow and grow and then they ATTACK!  ...

Lionheart (1990) - Blu-ray Review“What I did tonight, I did for my family.” Print critics, back in the day, might have kicked its ass but, damn, people STILL love the characters in the highly-quotable Lionheart.  It is, as far as Jean-Claude Van Damme is concerned, a very important film as it proved that he could  ...

Alien Predator (1987) - Blu-ray ReviewRidiculous.  Funny.  And now on blu-ray thanks to Scream Factory!  Cheap and cheesy, Alien Predators, originally released on VHS as The Falling, was one of my many go-to flicks at the video store back in the day.  Oh, to be held in the arms of the lovely Lynn-Holly Johnson ...

Snowbeast (1977) - BlurayIt’s big and overweight. It has weird hair. It’s white. It eats skiers and children and, no, it’s not Donald Trump. It is, in fact, the SNOWBEAST and, if you are moving at a high rate of speed down a mountain, chances are good that he will gobble your ass up in his mouth and grind your bones into powder ...

The Sleeper (2012) - Bluray

Time to sleep! Making its blu-ray debut is a retrograde schlock fest, The Sleeper, that gets quite a number of horror elements right in its 90-minutes. It is a film that embraces the ABSOLUTE Disturbing as one man, with milky-blue eyes and one hell of sick whisper, stalks the halls and ...

The Strangers: Prey at Night (2018) - Blu-ray ReviewA decade is a long time to wait.  But, sometimes, it pays off.  That's the case here with The Strangers: Prey at Night.  The same steady pace. The same unwinding feel. And, oh, the same horror. Strangers: Prey at Night is as unsettling as the original film, making it a worthy ...

Trick or Treats (1982) - Blu-ray ReviewAny film that credits Orson Welles as Magic Consultant must be, at the very least, viewed once in a person’s life. Even if the film is a big pile of stinky poop. Horror film or cult comedy? You decide. The film is not successful at either and yet it continues to exist and, as you’d ...

Abominable (2006) - Blu-rayWho knew that Bigfoot was an overgrown peeping Tom? Someone did because, in the fully restored version of Abominable, fans get to see that hairy bastard spy on a showering girl and then, as she comes near the window to close it, witness him reach right in, pull ...

Ninja III: The Domination Collector's Edition - Blu-ray ReviewIn which a schlocky cult classic - complete with beauty, brawn, and brains - is REBORN! Time to dance your fear away, fight in a dusty graveyard, and sharpen those badass blades of fury. Just know this about that long missing deleted scene: it isn’t included and is likely gone ...

Spetters (1980) - Blu-rayPaul Verhoeven does not make bad films. Argue with me all you want to about the massive raspberry that you claim is Showgirls and I will defend it to my last breath. It is everything that it is BY DESIGN. Verhoeven, the Dutch filmmaker that gave us RoboCop, Total Recall ...

Tomb Raider (2018) - Blu-ray ReviewAt least the filmmakers got the character right. Fist pumping all the way out of the theater this March, that was my big takeaway from this reboot. Finally, a Lara Croft film that felt EXACTLY like the character should. She just needed a better storyline. Maybe next time, right? ...
