Laserblast: VHS Retro Big Box Collection (1978) - Blu-ray ReviewRock‘em schlock‘em grooviness returns! There’s something really strange growing on Billy’s chest.  It’s silver, metallic, and looks very, very alien.  His girlfriend (Cheryl Smith) is concerned about his growing dark side and his doctor (Roddy McDowell)...

The House of the Dead (1978) - Blu-ray ReviewThis is homegrown horror, my friends.  As loopy as it is, The House of the Dead (originally released as Alien Zone) can’t be knocked for being inauthentic.  This Amicus-like horror anthology –  connected by one main storyline as one man, having an affair, gets dropped off ...

Memoirs of an Invisible Man (1992) - Blu-ray ReviewHere comes yet another John Carpenter film on blu-ray! Chevy Chase in a John Carpenter movie?  Yes, indeed.  Memoirs of an Invisible Man, while not a commercial success, remains a favorite among Carpenter’s fans.  It also one of Chase’s top ...

Supergirl (1984) - Blu-ray ReviewSupergirl is not a great movie.  But something AWESOME happens when you watch it repeatedly.  The damn thing clicks.  This is what happened to me while moving into my new house and it was the only blu-ray on my person.  There is a magic spell that is unleashed ...

Someone's Watching Me (1978) - BlurayThe phone rings.  You answer.  “I like you better without the robe.  Take it off.”  Oh, snap.  Someone is looking right at you.  Shit.  This is the territory of one of John Carpenter's most disturbing and psychologically bent horror movies.  The things that go on in our ...

In the Mouth of Madness - Blu-ray

It starts with the disappearance of Sutter Cane.  A mystery unfolds in our minds as one man, locked up in an insane asylum, starts blabbering on and on about being sorry for balls and lucky shots.  Poor John Trent (Sam Neill).  But he goes on, claiming not to be insane ...

Beyond Reanimator (2003) - Vestron Video Collector's SeriesProving there is still some mojo left in the bottle for the Re-Animator series (or maybe it was just a desire to get the gang back together), director Brian Yuzna and star Jeffrey Combs as Dr. Herbert West return, some 13 years later, to the series that put schlock back on ...

The navigator: A Medievel Odyssey (1988) - Blu-ray ReviewBecause dreamers can also be healers. Otherworldy.  That is one word that best describes the stark black-and-white opening of The Navigator: A Medieval Odyssey.  In it, we are thrust into a world that is both disturbing and deadly ...

Village of the Damned - Blu-ray reviewIn what has to be one of the most startling introductions ever put to film, Village of the Damned begins with a series of shots in which it appears all the adults in Midwich have collapsed.  There are groceries scattered throughout the streets.  Common items discarded and ...

Piranha: The Spawning = Blu-ray ReviewJames Cameron's first movie as a director isn’t very good.  Even by B-movie standards Piranha II: The Spawning leaves much to be desired.  The film, being a sequel to Roger Corman and Joe Dante’s successful flick, should have been wilder, funnier, and a bit more on point in ...

Dagon (2001) - Blu-ray ReviewPoor Barbara.  Barbara.  Barbara.  Barbara.  They truly are coming to get you, Barbara.  In what might go down as one of the most gruesome (and serious) horror deaths of the early 2000s, this poor woman is strung up nude and slashed repeatedly as she is lowered ...

Windrider - Blu-ray ReviewTo the sea! To the sea!  It is what Tom Burlinson commands as windsurfer Stewart “PC” Simpson in director Vincent Monton’s romantic comedy, Windrider.  This Australian film is as fun as the buggy Simpson drives to work.  I don’t know what it is about Australia’s ...

Enter the Devil (1972) - Blu-ray ReviewAlways a smoke.  Never a light.  Except this time is different: Enter the Devil is a diamond in the rough of cheap and greasy drive-in flicks.  It is to be experienced and marveled at as a stunning example of effective and shocking regional thrillers.  And it still works ...

Miss Stevens - DVD ReviewSo many movies have been made about inspiring teachers, you wonder what’s left to say about them. But the indie drama Miss Stevens tells a fresh new story about a very human, flawed English teacher named Rachel (Lily Rabe from American Horror Story) who connects  ...

Doom Asylum (1987) - Blu-ray Review“What have you done to Judy?!” It begins with a godawful cover of “House of the Rising Sun” and it ends with the world’s longest (and highly preventable) head-on collision as Judy LaRue (Penthouse's own Patty Mullen) and her fiancee are ...

Casual Sex? (1988) - Blu-ray ReviewBig hair. Shoulder pads. Casual sex. And Andrew Dice Clay. Anyone else miss the 1980s? I mean, who’d have thought the words “safe” and “sex” would ever appear in the same sentence? ...

Isle of Dogs (2018) - Blu-ray ReviewFoundations need to be shaken. Whatever happened to man’s best friend?  Isle of Dogs, written and directed by Wes Anderson, has the answer and it comes into focus via stop-motion.  This is Anderson’s second stop-motion feature but it might ...

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 ...
