Friday the 13th: 40th Anniversary Limited Editon SteelbookProduced and expertly directed by Sean S. Cunningham and written by Victor Miller, Friday the 13th, being the first independent movie to get distributed by a major studio, never seems to get the credit it deserves.  We take it for granted with much of the discussion revolving around which  ...

Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley QuinnWhen Harley Quinn has a bad day, it’s a good day for the rest of us. And Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn is the proof. The very bad, rotten day had by Harley (Margot Robbie, I, Tonya), is told in side-splitting detail in the 24-hour comical frenzy ...

Believe it or not, the meta-munching kills of Babyface (Raicho Vasilev) are back!  Completely ignored by damn near everyone at the time of its release, The Hills Run Red brought the “babyface” mask to horror enthusiasts a decade before Happy Death Day and Happy Death Day 2 U and ...

Gretel & HanselWho wasn't frightened as a child by the horrifically grim childhood fairy tale about an evil witch who bakes pastries to lure children into her home so she can cook and eat the youngsters for dinner? It’s a wonder any of us made it out of childhood without totally losing all of our marbles ...

Primal ScreamKiddos, when it comes to making movies, films RARELY get this ambitious. Primal Scream is what happens when Dashiell Hammett and Arthur C. Clarke get together, smoke a little weed, and decide to make a movie. Outside of Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, there is simply nothing  ...

Bad Boys For Life (2020)What does a filmmaker do when attempting to revive a franchise that has lain dormant for more than a decade? In the case of Bad Boys For Life, directors Adil and Bilall do what most other filmmakers have done: they adapt the story to fit a new cultural landscape, they riff  ...

Universal Horror Collection, Volume Five

Men and women in ape suits?  Yes, please! The Universal Horror Collection returns with even more mad scientists, crazed apes, and wild women!  Woot, woot!  I’ve been excited for this release since it was originally announced and, with a few short months of waiting ...

The GentlemenWhere have you been, Guy Ritchie? We’ve missed your language, your punch, your sleight of hand, and that self-referential swagger that defined your early days as a filmmaker. We got hardly any of that as you set out for more commercial ventures like Swept Away, The Man From U.N.C.L.E.,  ...

The Giant Spider Invasion

“Sometimes the only way I know you’re still alive is when I hear ya flush the toilet!” Don’t adjust your television set!  The little blue streak shooting across a rather bland-looking photo of the galaxy as the title card for THE GIANT SPIDER INVASION appears means that aliens have arrived in ...

Just MercyAt one point in Just Mercy, the new film from director, co-writer Destin Daniel Cretton (The Glass Castle), the film’s main character Bryan Stevenson (Michael B. Jordan) points out that “the opposite of poverty isn’t wealth, it’s justice.” Those words set the tone for the tangle of legal and  ...

The H-Man/Battle in Outer SpaceTake your pick, fellow kaiju geeks!  The latest double billing to hit the blu-ray market has a lot to offer fans of Japanese late 50's sci-fi flicks as both The H-Man (from 1958) and Battle in Outer Space (from 1959) make their blu-ray debut thanks to Mill Creek Entertainment ...

Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith2005 saw the end of the prequel trilogy, and what a job it had before it to finally deliver what we’d been promised since the trilogy was announced: the descent of Anakin Skywalker to the dark side and the rise of Darth Vader ...

Lone Wolf McQuaideChuck Norris, soaked in a profile of shadows, standing atop a red bluff in the Southwest might be one of the most striking images in Lone Wolf McQuade, an action flick which prides itself in showing the rugged manliness of one man’s individualism against a crazy force of criminal activity  ...

Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace Twice now, in different decades, Star Wars has resurrected itself and rewarded Lucas handsomely. With the recent sequel trilogy now behind us, the parallels between their reception and the era of the prequel trilogy are difficult to ignore. Both critics and the Star Wars fan base have major issues with ...

The Gates of HellIt shouldn’t be a shock to anyone that this horror classic begins with a scream. It’s as if writer/director Lucio Fulci is already expecting the shrieking as Father William Thomas (Fabrizio Jovine) wanders aimlessly around a cemetery. The slow driving beat of the electronic score from ...
