Terror: Limited Edition - Blu-ray ReviewBefore you press play on Terror, you need to throw logic out the window.  Don't think.  Just do it. ...

Proud Mary - Blu-ray ReviewIt begins with The Temptations. You know the groove. The high-hat and then the bass guitar; both working to dig deeper.   Papa Was a Rolling Stone, after all. And while the groove sets in, we see – with retro credits flashing upon the screen – actress Taraji P. Henson as she suits ...

Deep Red: Limited Edition (1975) - Blu-ray ReviewProvocative and psychological, this movie, featuring a brand new restoration from a 4K scan of the original negative by Arrow Video, is an incredible statement on the beauty of film as an art form. It is directed by a visual master of the macabre and, unrestrained with astounding ...

Full Moon High (1982) - Blu-ray ReviewThis is the story of one teenager who has an itch that, because of what he has become, he won’t ever stop itching. Full Moon High, now on blu-ray thanks to Scream Factory, might never live up to its potential but it certainly knows how to have a howling good time while it runs ...

Superbeast (1972) - Blu-ray ReviewRob Zombie’s “ragged they come and the ragged they kill” opening line of his own take on Superbeast scored big numbers for him back in 1998. Hell, it still does to this day; the song is now regarded as one of his best. His homage to this wacky B-movie, now making its ...

Enigma Rosso AKA Red Rings of Fear (1978) - Blu-ray ReviewThis is a film in which a rollercoaster becomes an interrogation scene.  Effectively shot and all sorts of dangerous, Enigma Rosso has arrived.  Ah, the student body. A little less noise, girls. Keep it down. Keep. It. Down. ...

Psychopath - Blu-ray

Dolls, why’d it have to be dolls? At seventeen minutes into this thriller, we get to see an investigator – already at a loss for the murders happening – stumble into a red room that is full of some of the most disturbing dolls you have ever seen. Up close in one that is dressed ...

...

insidious last key artLook, if this is THE END of the Insidious series, then okay, I can live with it. After all, Insidious: The Last Key gives Lin Shaye (as parapsychologist Dr. Elise Rainier) more room to shine than ever before. She does, too. Even if the script and the directing is bit of a dullard, she  ...

The Soultangler - Blu-ray review

“After life. After death. The madness begins.” It is the poor delivery of that opening line that seals the deal in this shot-on-video ultra trashy flick. The Soultangler, directed by Pat Bishow, is the real deal when it comes to super sticky SINema from the other side of the aisle. Thankfully, we have ...

The Outer Limits: Season One (1963-1964) - Blu-ray ReviewCampy. Hard. Serious. Weird. Whatever word you use to describe your interpretation of this benchmark television show, just know that you aren’t wrong. The Outer Limits, for a large portion of us, continues to be EVERYTHING.  The Twilight Zone, as awesome as ...

Three O'Clock High (1987) - Blu-ray ReviewThank God for Shout Select. Their resurrection of Three O’Clock High, the very apex of cinematic psychological fear and terror when it comes to High School flicks, is to be worshiped. John Hughes did great things for teenagers in the 1980s but, when it comes to ...

Serpent's Lair (1995) - Blu-ray ReviewPsycho kitties and Satanists be damned! Wild sex in a reclining office chair must be mastered by all. For the young couple at the center of this erotic thriller, sometimes it is best to leave well enough alone. Serpent’s Lair might be simple enough in the horror ...

Fangs of the Living Dead 91969) - Blu-ray ReviewFor Sylvia Morel, suddenly becoming a Countess with her very own castle doesn't go to her head in this cult classic of camp; it goes to her teeth! Equal parts Hammer Horror and a cheeky Roger Corman production, the gothic ambiance is indeed strong Fangs of the Living Dead. And so, too ...

The Sadist of Notre Dame (1979) - Blu-ray ReviewSatanic orgies and servants of God populate this sex-fueled and relatively bloodless slice of EuroSleaze cinema. How could this combination EVER go wrong?! ...

Into the Night: Collector's Edition - Blu-ray Review“My name is Diana. Like Princess Diana. Diana.” Once again, the critics killed a classic with their negative reviews. Into the Night is full of comedic marvel, memorable lines, a solid cast, and great Los Angeles vistas. And it begins as a passenger plane touches down with B.B.  ...

Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon Collector's Edition 2006 - Blu-rayConsidering the fact that there are STILL those poor souls out there who do not understand that Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon is a mockumentary, you’ll forgive me if I lead this review off with a curse aimed directly at their heads. Fuck those idiots. Seriously. ...

The Black Scorpion (1957) - Blu-ray ReviewDon’t be afraid to scream, ghouls and boils, this underground fantasy flick knows its way in the dark, but that doesn't mean something crawling across the floor won't bite the hell out of you. The subterranean gets slaughtered thanks to the stop motion animated fury ...

The City of the Dead (1960) - Blu-ray Review“Burn the witch! Burn her! Burn, witch! Burn, witch! Burn! Burn! Burn!” This is the chant that is silenced when the entire fictional town of Whitewood, Massachusetts notices a deep darkening in the sky over Elizabeth Selwyn (Patricia Jessell) as the accused witch they hare trying ...

Welcome Home Brother Charles (1975) - Blu-ray ReviewLet the beginning backdrop of this Blaxploitation classic be your warning. As the African statue turns to face us, we see what it is depicting: a black man with a very, very big and erect penis in his hands. Need you be anxious about the main “thrust” of this picture, yes, this is a ...

Jumanji (2017) - Blu-ray ReviewThe rhinos are back! And so are the laughs, as we have the rare sequel that actually works because it dares to do something a bit different with our expectations. Not that anything in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is all that intelligent, mind you, but the charm from the  ...

The Church (1989) Blu-ray ReviewHaunted horse gallops, death by jackhammers, and a magic leathery bag that, once opened, strangles whoever is doing the opening? All of this inside a church where the sacred is believed to reign? Get the fuck right out of here and consider me warned. I’m not messing ...

Nashville Girl (1976) - Blu-ray ReviewTo this day, there remains something insanely special about director Brian De Palma’s Carrie.  It is based on the once-discarded novel by Stephen King, but was painstakingly adapted for the screen by Lawrence D. Cohen.  Cohen got everything about King’s first novel right  ...

Offering (1989) - Blu-ray ReviewAnd the Mother of the Year award goes to little Johnny Radley’s gap-toothed beast of a Mom. In just about one minute of screen time, we get enough information about this grumpy bitch to know that she deserves a knife in a skull. I wish I was kidding. I’m not ...

The 'Burbs (1989) - Blu-ray ReviewThe critics were wrong about this movie. DEAD WRONG. The ‘Burbs, when it released in 1989, opened to hellfire and damnation via the printed word by most of the print critics. Director Joe Dante, in the NEW interviews with the cast and crew for this special Collector’s Edition  ...

Star Time (1991) - Blu-ray ReviewThe Baby Mask Killer strikes again! Alexander Cassini's Star Time will fuck you up. There’s no other way to put it because this dark commentary on television’s impact upon our culture is truer now than it was when it was originally released in 1993. And we have Vinegar ...

Denial - Movie ReviewWhen most people hear the word “history,” they think of a dry, boring subject full of dull facts to memorize. But that’s not the impression you get from Denial, based on the true story of a historian in the 1990s who takes on a Holocaust denier in court. Deborah Lipstadt (Rachel Wiesz)  ...

Deadly Dreams (1988) - Blu-ray ReviewSometimes surreal horror involves a gnarly sex scene on a rotating bed. Other times it involves knifing someone in the face through a pillow while they sleep. You know what they say, though, if you die in your dreams then you die in real life. For the dude at the center of this ...

Hide and Go Shriek (1988) - Blu-ray ReviewMannequins.  It had to be Mannequins. Even more fun at the local neighborhood chopping mall! This movie, full of gorgeous girls and their brain dead boyfriends, is what happens when four teenage couples do some after hours shopping in a furniture store. Well, sort of ...

Twilight People (1972) - Blu-ray ReviewDescribe to me the most boring movie ever. Go ahead. I will wait. Is it 90-minutes of a man staring at paint drying on a wall? Do people pass in front of that wall trying to get him to look away? Does he? No? Okay. Whatever. Sounds pretty dull, but if there happens to be a panther ...

House on the Edge of the Park / Last House on Massacre Street - Blu-ray ReviewDecapitated chicken heads, neurotic brides, and a creepy killer who is handy at fixing cars, soaping up babes in the shower, and slitting throats. Sounds like a damn good Friday night film pairing to me. With this release from Code Red the 70’s drive-in twofer continues! ...
