The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across The 8th Dimension - Blu-ray ReviewTo this day, The Adventures of Bukaroo Banzai remains one helluva wild ride.   There is no other film that quite matches its new wave swagger.  Nothing comes close to its style or its wit and, while a complete product of its time, the film has remained relatively ageless due  ...

Invasion of the Boday Snatchers (1978) - Blu-ray Review“Can you still do the things with your eyes?  You’re not crazy if you can still do the thing with your eyes.” I will NEVER forget the first time I saw Philip Kaufman’s Invasion of the Body Snatchers.  I wouldn’t go outside in the rain for weeks afterwards thanks to the opening ...

Hardcore Henry - Blu-ray ReviewNow, THIS shit is bananas.   While I’m sure Gwen Stefani did not have Hardcore Henry – or anything like it – in mind when she penned the lyrics to her song, the chorus fits in describing almost EVERY element of the action flick.  Produced by Wanted’s Timur Bekmambetov ...

Petey Wheatstraw: The Devil's Son-in-Law - Blu-ray ReviewComedian Rudy Ray Moore (Dolemite & The Human Tornado) came into this world as a 10-year-old boy ready for battle.  Wearing diapers and beating the white doctor’s ass who delivered him (and then his father for “keeping him up at night”) is certainly a hell of a way to   ...

The Boy Who Cried Werewolf - Blu-ray ReviewReleased in 1973 as the bottom-half of a double feature, The Boy Who Cried Werewolf never could match wits with its running mate, Sssssss.  Both were creature features.  Both were low budget offerings.  Both were weird enough, yet cult filmmaker Nathan Juran (Attack   ...

hellhole (1985) - blu-ray ReviewI am sure there are some people involved in director Pierre De Moro’s Hellhole that wish the film did not still exist. The truth is that the cinematic sleaze contained in this flick almost didn’t survive the ravages of time. Culled together from the best sources available, Scream  ...

William Castle Double Feature: 13 Ghosts & 13 Frightened Girls (1960, 1963) - Blu-ray ReviewWilliam Castle never met a gimmick he didn’t like. Known for filling theaters with anxious audiences, his gimmicks, whether they be 13 Ghosts’ special Dr. Zorba ghost viewer or the auditioning of girls from different countries to be in 13 Frightened Girls, he knew how to sell  ...

William Castle Double Feature: Homicidal & Mr. Sardonicus (1961)When we get to any discussion on the films of William Castle, there are so many to consider that it becomes overwhelming. The famed director, producer, screenwriter, and actor never found a promotion he didn’t like. He was, in fact, a sheer master of filling theaters with  ...

The Return of the Living Dead: Collector's Edition - Blu-ray ReviewThank you, Scream Factory for this updated treat! Operating as neither a sequel to or a part of George A. Romero’s Zombie series, The Return of the Living Dead doesn’t really profess to be much of anything…except a hell of a lot of gory fun.  That doesn’t...

The Fantastic Films of Ray Harryhausen - Blu-ray ReviewWith a ceremonial crashing of cymbals, Bernard Herrmann’s thunderous score – completely without the use of strings - kicks off the drama and stop-motion wonder in Jason and the Argonauts.  Directed by Don Chaffey (of Pete’s Dragon and One Million Years B.C. fame)   ...
