Yor: The Hunter From the Future - Blu-ray Review“Yor’s world!  He’s the man!  Yor’s world!”  With these puzzling lyrics, Oliver Onions, a duo best known for their cheesy soundtrack work, perfectly matches their cosmic melody with a downhill (and hilariously goofy) introduction to our hero.  He’s trying really hard to be all ...

Matinee: Collector's Edition - Blu-ray ReviewSick thrills for hotheaded teenagers! The Cuban Missile Crisis!  Bring in the nuked and still marching ants, too!  My God, I love this film.  I, too, have a serious crush on William Castle, the producer the film is based upon.  His independently made horror films, no matter how ...

The boy wakes up. His hair is a mess that no comb will be able to contain.  Dirk the Daring, the best knight in the kingdom of King Ethelred, stares back at him from his wall.  The kid, a little pudgy around the middle, flexes in the mirror before slipping on his shirt.  He goes down the stairs.  His Big Dog ...

 

Blade Runner 2049 - Blu-ray ReviewIt is a valley of ash that fills the screen; dull and without expression. Little hope resides here. It is a dull and gray atmosphere that washes over us; full of cold notions as K (Ryan Gosling) arrives at a protein farm with the sole duty to retire the replicant who operates this farm ...

Emmanuelle and the Deadly Black Cobra - Blu-ray Review

Eurotrash cinema by way of slinky and naked snake handling?  Yummy. If gorgeous and exotic topless women dancing open-mouthed with a damn big snake wrapping around them as an organ soundtrack plays with a chorus of female voices chanting  “Gee-gee-I” turns you on ...

The Foreigner - Blu-ray Review

Because sometimes older is better.  Martin Campbell.   Pierce Brosnan.  Jackie Chan.  When these three titans of hard-hitting action go toe-to-toe, you are definitely going to want to see the results.  Those artists – two actors and one director (responsible for GoldenEye ...

Sweet Sugar (2018) - Blu-ray Review“Alright, ladies, from here on out your machete is your best friend.  Keep it clean.  Keep it sharp.  And keep it well oiled.”  With those specific instructions, the burly guards of one sugarcane harvesting prison program in Costa Rica unleash Hell itself by arming the ...

The Breakfast Club - Blu-ray Review

Hell Night (1981) - Blu-ray ReviewScore another one for the good guys!  Hell Night, being a fun-loving meditation on the very nature of gothic haunts and twisted terror by the man who brought you The Concrete Jungle (which I reviewed just last week)Chatterbox, and Reform School Girls, is finally back ...

Seven Bllod STained Orchids (1972) - Blu-ray ReviewThe Half Moon Killer strikes again! First and foremost, there is the undying groove as Seven Blood Stained Orchids, a crimson-spattered film in which a brown-haired prostitute meets her nickel-sized fate in a cornfield, opens upon the streets in an expressionistic manner ...

Cut and Run (1985) - Blu-ray ReviewBlood and whipped cream.  That's the party you can expect when Jungle Jimmy comes home. Mighty human meatballs!  If the first few moments of Cut and Run don’t churn your stomach than you, my friend, are dead already.  It’s a ferociously bloody and brutal opening ...

The Concrete Jungle (1982) - Blu-ray ReviewThis movie, directed by Hell Night’s Tom DeSimone, is why I don’t go skiing. That white powder on the ground? It’s not always snow and, once discovered, it could land you in a prison for the baddest of bad little girls. And, trust me, I don’t want to belong to someone ...

Brawl in Cell Block 99 - Blu-ray ReviewKnow this: Bone Tomahawk, the horror western that tore at our guts last year, was no fucking fluke.  Writer/director S. Craig Zahler is the real deal when it comes to B-movie minded badass pictures and Vince Vaughn, bald and in shape as the drug dealing focal point of ...

Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama (1987) - Blu-ray ReviewWhen was the last time you bowled with a severed head?  Fought off possessed humans with bowling pins?  Freed an imp from a bowling trophy?  If you never have, then Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama is the gutterball-minded flick for you. ...

Jeepers Creepers 3 - Blu-ray ReviewSeptember 26.  To my knowledge that’s the only day Jeepers Creepers 3 was granted access to theaters.  You know why and I’m not about to go into all the details surrounding writer/director Victor Salva (Powder, Jeepers Creepers) past here.  The point is that  ...

Tulip Fever (2017) - Blur-ay ReviewPeriod pieces such as these can have a hard time in the modern cinematic landscape, so one must come loaded for bear to make a mark. What tends to resonate with modern audiences, apart from the usual commercially considered trappings Hollywood always considers ...

Valdez is Coming (1971) - Blu-ray Review To 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  ...

Twin Peaks - Limited Series Event -Season 3 - Blu-ray ReviewIt happened again.  Whatever side of the coin you land on when it comes to appreciating Twin Peaks: The Return and its use of Tulpas, the point is that it happened.  And we should ALWAYS be grateful – no matter if there is another season or not – that Twin Peaks soldiered ...

logan lucky posterHeist films are well trodden genre this century, with many a bankable name and director taking various stabs at them with varying degrees of success. The ones that have stood out in the past couple of decades seem to possess a couple of key ingredients: relatable or interesting ...

The Blood Spattered Bride - Blu-ray ReviewThere’s really nothing I can do to save you from yourself if the first five minutes of director Vicente Aranda’s The Blood Spattered Bride does absolutely nothing for you.  Tarantino has alluded to its mesmerizing effectiveness, going so far as to name one of his chapters in ...

American Gothic (1988) - Blu-ray ReviewI’m unsure if there is anything creepier than adults, dressed as children, behaving exactly as one would expect kids to behave.  For Fanny and Woody, playing on an old swing that goes out over the sea, theirs is to lure guests into their traps and then watch as they go ...

Sole Survivor - Blu-ray ReviewSurvivor’s guilt is a real thing. Just ask Thom Eberhardt (Night of the Comet), the writer and director of Sole Survivor, a psychological twisted horror film that concerns itself with the lone survivor of a doomed commercial airliner and the haunted visions that follow her as she ...

Silent Night, Deadly Night: Collector's Edition - Blu-ray ReviewReleased in 1984, Charles E. Sellier Jr’s Silent Night, Deadly Night did for Christmas what John Carpenter did for trick or treating: memorialize the day with a seriously twisted flick that continues to live on long past its expiration date.  And here we are yet again with another ...

Misery Collector's Edition - blu-ray2017 has been something of a marquee year for Stephen King cinematic adaptations, with TV scoring big on Gerald’s Game, 1922, and Mr. Mercedes, and It breaking records on the big screen. (Note: The Dark Tower was a big stumble.) So although this year is a few shy of Misery’s 30th anniversary ...

Suspiria (1977) - Blu-ray ReviewThis release from Synapse Films of Suspiria is a work of pure art.  It is also important and impactful, belonging in a time capsule AND in your collection of horror titles.  It is, hands down, my pick for the best blu-ray release of the year.  With only 6000 units produced ...

Premonition (1976) - Blu-ray ReviewThe damn doll at the center of this tale of kidnapping and insanity is an unsettling looking toy indeed.  The curly-haired plastic child is always with the disturbed mother who is trying to get her daughter returned to her by any means necessary and, as the toy is oversized, it looks ...

Malatesta's Carnival of Blood (1973) - Blu-ray ReviewSurrender.  Forget the common and known world.  Once you enter the wild and wacky world of Malatesta’s Carnival of Blood, life, as you know it, becomes permanently altered.  There is a dream but you are not the dreamer ...

Etoile - Blu-ray ReviewThis theatre is damned!  Sorry, Aronofsky, you aren’t as unique as was once thought.  Étoile reveals all the reasons why. With Tchaikovsky’s “Swan Lake” at its center, Étoile – a rather enigmatic movie concerning ghosts, satanic possessions, and ballerinas – provides  ...

The Witch Who Came From the Sea - Blu-ray ReviewIt begins on a beach.  A woman is laughing.  She’s seeing all the muscles on display; the men hulking out in their shorts on the beach.  Lots of ogling is going on.  And she starts to laugh.  She sees them working out and then she sees them with blood spurting out of fresh ...
