Sleint Night, Deadly Night Part Two: Collector's Edition blu-rayBecause Santa Claus only comes once a year, why not go back to the well?  Silent Night, Deadly Night Part Two has to be one of the most fantastically awful sequels out there.  Sure, sure, sure, it’s a pile of shit, recapping the original movie for half of the film before spiraling  ...

Split - Movie ReviewOne of the few things more beguiling than an M. Night Shaymalan movie when the writer/director is at the top of his game, is the direction his career has taken over the last decade or so. He launched to meteoric heights back in the late ‘90s and early 00’s with The Sixth  ...

Fiend (1980) - Blu-ray Review

And you think your neighbors are weird?! With an introductory title card that is damn legendary, Don Dohler’s Fiend begins.  Certain legends have mentioned the Fiend.  They talk of its red phantasmagoric presence; its ability to enter the earth and bring forth the dead ...

Passengers - Movie ReviewPassengers is a long and winding journey on a very familiar path through space. To say this imaginative sci-fi adventure shoots itself in the foot is an understatement – especially if you sit through all of its two hours. To say that the film is completely worthless – as so many are  ...

Snowflake (2018) - Movie ReviewMaking its blu-ray debut, Snowflake (originally released as Schneeflöckchen in 2017) proves that German cinema might just be on the rebound.  Taking on the subject of revenge might not sound so grand and ambitious of an idea, but what directors Adolfo Kolmerer  ...

Blow-up (1966) - Blu-ray ReviewBlow-Up might have been writer/director Michelangelo Antonioni’s first British film, but it was far from English. The Italian director was far from home, but neither is it an Italian film. Blow-Up, being one of the first films to document the effect of images upon ...

The Mangler (1995) - Blu-ray Review

Hells Bells, Liddell!!! Seriously, just promise me that if you are ever working around heavy machinery and you happen to drop some pills on a MOVING conveyer belt that you will just let the damn machine grind that shit up.  Because, in The Mangler, one worker does ...

Arrival - Movie ReviewScience fiction alien invasion flicks. They are a dime-a-dozen. Mysterious ship arrives on Earth and blows the population to smithereens. Or the creatures are disposed of in short order by flag-waving, cigar-chomping patriots who “don’t take no $%#@ off anyone.” Then, in some, ...

Stop Making Sense (2018) - Blu-ray ReviewWhen it comes to concert films, there are few things better than the teaming of Jonathan Demme (Silence of the Lambs, Philadelphia) and David ByrneStop Making Sense, the title coming from a lyric inside the Talking Heads’ song “Girlfriend is Better”, is a concert  ...

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back - Movie Review2012 saw the wildly popular Lee Childs bestselling books come to life on the big screen with Jack Reacher, a film that caught most by surprise with its bad-ass vintage style and tone that harkened back to the he-man, classic car-chase films of the ‘70s like Bullitt and The French  ...

Starman - Blu-ray Review

"You're not from around here, are you?" For many of us, it is the scene when the alien arrives on earth as a baby that freaked us out the most.  It was for me.  Sure, the explosion in the woods as the alien vehicle “lands” was pretty freaking cool but, truly, that scene where ...

Blair Witch - Movie ReviewIt is time, my friends, to go back to the woods. The reclusive Blair Witch has returned. It seems she never left the Black Hills Forest. While it may have taken 16 years to get a proper sequel to 1999’s phenomenon The Blair Witch Project (because I’m not counting the  ...

Horror of Dracula (1958) - Blu-ray ReviewThe steady beat.  The blistering horns.  That powerful theme of James Bernard’s pierces the walls of this cemetery; it is majestic even.  It sounds like a procession as the camera marches us toward the tomb of Dracula.  And then, because we’d not have it any other way  ...

Ouija: Origin of Evil - Blu-ray ReviewArmed with a healthy dose of much needed restraint, director Mike Flanagan (Oculus) and co-writer Jeff Howard collaborate to save Ouija: Origin of Evil from the haunting lows of its predecessor.  It’s incredible to see just how much better the prequel is when compared to the  ...

Dracula, Prince of Darkness: Collector's Edition - Blu-rayDirected by Terence Fisher, Dracula, Prince of Darkness is Hammer Films' first sequel to 1958's Horror of Dracula to feature the return of Christopher Lee as the Count (who was absent from 1960's Brides of Dracula).  It also marks a sort of crossroads  ...

The Monster - Movie review and detailsMonster movies – no matter how old-fashioned they appear – will never EVER go out of style.  There will always be a corner of the dark forest where terrifying things lurk about and, perhaps more importantly, there will always be people who want to watch these creatures spring  ...

Deep Throat (1972) - Blu-rayOh, Doctor Young!  Bells will ring!  Rockets will take off!  A kangaroo will play a big brass horn!  That’s what happens when Linda Lovelace (Linda Boreman) finally understands that her clitoris is actually in her mouth and not between her legs.  All these years, she’s been  ...

In a Valley of Violence - Movie ReviewWriter, director, and editor Ti West (The Innkeepers) pays homage to the westerns of Sergio Leone with his latest film, In a Valley of Violence.  The results are expectantly explosive with sudden bursts of violence, yet not as exploitative as one might think considering the  ...

The Children (1980) - Blu-rayThere won’t be a soul left standing when our kids turn on us.  One touch is all it takes.  A single hug from one of these contaminated heathens and “BLAMMO!” your face turns to mush, splotchy with burn marks and red welts.  Receive a hug and you die.  That’s the price  ...

The BFG - Movie ReviewDirector Steven Spielberg is no stranger to the fantastical realms that collide in his faithful adaptation of Roald Dahl’s 1982 children’s classic book.  For many people like myself, Spielberg’s films were the main courses of our cinematic outings growing up. His filmography  ...

The House With the Clock in its Walls - Blu-ray Review and DetailsThe wizarding world is alive and well thanks to this throwback kid’s flick from director Eli Roth.  You might recognize the name.  Roth is auteur behind the Hostel series, Knock Knock, and Green Inferno.  He’s a horror film guru, thanks to his “love it or leave it” attitude...

The Magnificent Seven (2016) - Movie Review

Before we get started, let’s get one thing out of the way. Get off your high horse about The Magnificent Seven being a remake. We mustn't forget that 1960’s The Magnificent Seven was itself a remake of an earlier – and better – film called The Seven Samurai. All three  ...

Blood Harvest - Blu-ray ReviewHung upside down.  Swinging from the rafters of a barn.  It's a hell of a way to go.  Especially when stripped of your clothing.  The killer running loose here - with a stocking over his face - is seriously messed up.  ...

The Devil's Candy - Movie ReviewHell, yes!!!!  If you are anything like me (and completely landlocked), you probably feel like you have waited entirely too long to see this horror movie.  I first heard about The Devil’s Candy in 2015, where it debuted at Fantastic Fest, and the reviews were through the  ...

Mausoleum: Limited Edition - Blu-rayYou keep right on telling yourself there’s nothing wrong with Susan.  The glowing green eyes.  The high-pitched siren whenever she’s ‘”lit” and ready to go.  And then there is that mausoleum that is at the center of her family’s curse.  Strange things indeed are all up in this  ...

Hell or High Water - Movie ReviewIn David Mackenzie’s new film, Hell or High Water, the sprawling West Texas setting – as beautiful as it is rugged – conceals the crushing desolation of its sun-bleached towns whose futures have long since shriveled in the Texas heat. Hard-pressed ranchers, abandoned ...

Cutting Class (1989) - Blu-rayWant to watch a really young Brad Pitt (fresh from his Pringles commercial) nearly take out a toddler in his Mustang?  Or watch an overweight gym teacher get impaled on a trampoline by an American flag (still on the flag pole)?  Then this is the slasher for you!  ...

Don't Breathe - Movie Review

If director Fede Alvarez’s revisit of Sam Raimi’s spooky old cabin in the deep, dark, twisted woods of rural America did something for you in 2013’s Evil Dead, then you need to know that Alvarez is finally back. This time with a creepy little home invasion thriller  ...

Maniac: 3-disc limited edition - blu-rayDirector William Lustig (Maniac Cop), the current CEO of Blue Underground, has FINALLY gotten around to giving his own cult classic the deluxe treatment.  It’s about damn time, too.  This film, grisly and grim, is quite the achievement when it comes to low budget  ...

The Great Gilly Hopkins - DVD ReviewI’ve loved the young adult novel The Great Gilly Hopkins since childhood. So my reaction to the news of a Hollywood movie adaptation was, “They better not screw it up.” Well, I’m happy to say my fears were unfounded, and the filmmakers did an excellent job  ...
