chaos dont look in basemen blurayCode Red does fans of the Drive-In a very cool favor with the release of the Chaos and Don’t Look in the Basement double feature. While Don’t Look in the Basement has been released on Blu-ray previously, never before has the cult classic been presented in a twofer ...

Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III (1990) - Blu-ray ReviewWhile it is way too slick in comparison to the first two Texas Chainsaw Massacre films, New Line Cinema’s rebranding of the series – as confusing as that opening scrawl is – remains of interest because, originally set to be released as the 1980s came to a close, this film would ...

Night of the Living Dead: Criterion Collection - Blu-ray Review

The Dead live ... again! There’s no denying that Criterion’s handling of writer/director George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead just might be the most important blu-ray release of the year ...

Drag Me to Hell - Blu-ray ReviewWhen this film was originally released NINE YEARS AGO, we really wanted writer/director Sam Raimi to be back in the business of scaring the pants off of us and making us howl with laughter. We got exactly what we wanted with Drag Me to Hell even if Raimi remained relatively ...

Play Misty for Me (1971) - Blu-ray ReviewThe obsessed fan/love interest movie is a well-trodden one nowadays, with some truly stellar entries in the sub-genre (Misery, Fatal Attraction) and some truly awful ones; but one, to my surprise, that is rarely brought up is one of the earliest on this subject ...

Sling Blade (1996) - Blu-ray ReviewIt is a sad fact that talent doesn’t necessarily equate to a career of note or at all in Hollywood. There are literally hundreds of thousands of talented people out there that will never get their shot in the spotlight. Every so often, however, someone manages to bridge this gap from  ...

Kindergarten Cop (1990 - Bluray ReviewPretty harshly assessed by critics of the day, Kindergarten Cop, the follow up collaboration between the 'Austrian Oak' and director Ivan Reitman, was still a massive financial success back in 1990 when it took over 200 million on a (now) paltry budget of around 15 million. ...

Schoolgirls in chains (1973) - Blu-ray ReviewEven primal therapy was never this raw. Produced and directed by Don Jones, the opening montage of china dolls set to a really cheesy song that, simply put, is beyond tortuous for its audience is just about the most disquieting way to begin this lurid tale of madness and murder ...

The Amicus Collection - Blu-ray ReviewHoly Hatchets!  The moving severed limbs of one deceased wife attacking the people who plotted her basement murder are all you need to see in order to believe in the IMPACT of Amicus Productions.  Chop. Chop. Chop.  ...

The Diabolical Dr. Z (1966) - Blu-ray ReviewArtsy kink.  This is what awaits you inside one of director Jesús "Jess" Franco best and most masterfully shot films. With Spanish-born filmmaker Jess Franco’s eerie feature, The Diabolical Dr. Z, things begin to get sexy and strange.  Truthfully, there’s no going back either as  ...

Victor Crowley (2017) - Blu-ray ReviewFour films in, I think it is safe to say that Honey Island Swamp is getting crowded. Writer/Director Adam Green’s Hatchet series just crash-landed (and I mean that both literally and figuratively).  Hitting its stride in the second and third installment, Victor Crowley, an unneeded ...

Batman: Gotham by Gaslight - Blu-ray ReviewThe Elseworld has arrived, DC fans! There is a shadow that stalks the corners of the alleyways in Gotham City.  Another one – separate but just as severe – darkens the very top of roofs.  His shadow looms larger.  One of those threatening shadows carries a long, steely ...

Panic (1982) - Blu-ray ReviewThis Italian-Spanish co-production is a shoddy horror film. Know that first. Panic is; however, quite interesting in its own way, weaving a tale about scientists who create something they cannot even hope to control through failed bacteria experiments, as it has more ...

Devil's Express (1976) - Blu-ray ReviewMutant cats, sabertooth rats, and gold lamé outfits! Nothing good can ever come from an evil that’s been buried for over 2000 years.  That, my friends, is something that you can take to the bank.  But what if that ancient horror found its way into a Blaxploitation martial arts flick?...

The Apartment on the 13th Floor - Blu-rayAlways pay your cab drivers, kids. That’s one lesson to take from watching Code Red’s Blu-ray release of The Apartment on the 13th Floor, a psychological horror film about a slaughterhouse worker who loses his shit one night and just snaps. Eventually, he finds it ...

Sweet Sixteen (1983) - Blu-rayShe’s smart.  She’s sexy.  She’s new in town and she’s all sorts of sweet sixteen.  She also likes making it with boys on sacred Native American burial grounds in the desert.  What a way to get your rocks off, honey!  The bad thing for the boys, though, is that they have a ...

Gothic: Vestron Video Collector's Series Blu-rayAnarchy and hedonism!  The Romantic writers, according to this fictionalized account of the creation of Shelley's Frankenstein and Polidari's The Vampyre, were a bunch of cock-gobbling druggies.  This is probably true.  And, as the sex is as rampant as the wild visual  ...

Connected: Echosythetic FestImagine it.  Close your eyes and set the scene.  You are alone on the highway.  Maybe this is a highway through a glorious city of neon lights.  Maybe it is a desert highway with only dunes and starry skies above.  Regardless, you are solo on this night and the destination ...

Class of 1999: Vestron Video Collector's SeriesClass of 1999 is, of course, the film that reveals the truth behind the magic of Pam Grier's glorious breasts.  The scene, happening in a school hallway after she takes down two gang leaders on their motorbikes with one swift motion, is both awe inspiring and cringeworthy ...

mother! - Movie ReviewSome people enjoy playing with Rubik's cubes. Others, like me, don't know how to solve them and wind up wanting to throw the cubes against the wall in frustration. I had that same chucking-a-Rubik's-cube feeling many times while watching Darren Aronofsky's latest  ...

The Projected Man - Blu-ray ReviewDisfigurement!  Death!  Dastardly charges of electricity!  So this is why the lights went out last night, by golly!  This is why scientists – no matter how large or small their egos are – should NEVER experiment on themselves. ...

Penitentiary (1979) - Blu-ray ReviewBeing in the wrong place at the wrong time just might save your life. Martel "Too Sweet" Gordone (Leon Isaac Kennedy) has an axe to grind.  If he has to do it against the skulls of the two bikers who kick dust and sand up into his makeshift tent while he sleeps ...

Attack of the Killer Tomatoes (1978) - Blu-ray ReviewAll we wanted was a bigger and healthier tomato, what we got was a ripe parody that paved the way for such comedy classics like Airplane! and all the other beloved and relatively tasteless gag-filled comedies that populated the scene at the time of its release ...

Octaman (1971) - Blu-ray ReviewHalf-man, half-sea serpent; all thrashing rubber!  Filmmaker Harry Essex is at it once again.  Yes, the writer of Creature from the Black Lagoon and It Came from Outer Space is once again striking fear into the hearts of ecologists with his stock footage-padded warning about ...

Aftermath (1982) - Blu-ray Review

I’m not sure anyone should hold a gun to the back of Sid Haig’s legendary bald head.  There’s always Hell to pay later.  Thankfully, the lasers in The Aftermath are not set to stun.  Long neglected, it is now time to welcome a true cult ...

Lucifer's Women/Doctor Dracula Limited Edition - Blu-ray ReviewOrgies! Cocaine! A bug-eyed hypnotist!  And women, women, women!  Lucifer's Women is a nutso exploration between evil energy sources as satanic possession makes one woman's skin crawl. ...

Dario Argento's Opera (1987) - Blu-ray ReviewThe Italian giallo, my fiends, was still going strong in the 1980s.  Yes, two decades after its debut, the surreal qualities of the sub-genre were still solidly at play in theaters and also still very popular among cult enthusiasts.  Due to the rise of the slasher in America ...

The Sword and the Claw - Blu-ray ReviewHis fingers have been eaten away.  He will no longer be able to use them.  Well, that sounds like a challenge to me!  Game on!  Long live the Texas-based American Genre Film Archive as, once again, they make movies fun again! AGFA goes the distance in rescuing director ...

Fugitive Girls (1974) - Blu-ray ReviewBad acting, bad sex, and organic tea.  Count me in!  What more could five loose women on the run from a prison want on the long and winding road back to the real world?  Violent hippies with awesome moustaches and chains?  Ed Wood in a dual role?  Hell, this ...

geostorm - Blu-ray ReviewTsunamis.  Hurricanes.  Firenados?  Well, alrighty then.  This is the largely uninspired world of Geostorm, a movie that phones in more than just a series of sad performances all trapped within the pages of a story that appears to have been written by a teenager who lets the  ...
