The Plague of the Zombies (1966) - Blu-rayYou will NEVER forget the first seen ashen-faced zombie (Ben Harris) in this movie.  I promise you.  That cackle!  That expression!  It is a scene, in which the zombie chucks a woman’s body over a ledge, that will linger with you thanks to the crazed look glued on the face of ...

Mid90s - Movie Review

There’s no grand message in Mid90s, the heartfelt new film written and directed by actor Jonah Hill who takes his first turn at bat behind the camera. And there’s really not much of a story either. This sincere little coming of age film is perfectly content to simply sit back and ...

Violence in a Women's Prison (1982) - Blu-ray Review

Kitty’s back on the cell block!  Woot! Woot!  Let the sweat-dripping orgies begin! Violence in a Women’s Prison, originally released in 1982, is a damn ugly exploitation flick. Even when you lower the bar when it comes to Women in Prison flicks, this ...

AXL - Blu-ray ReviewOnce again, I do NOT get the critical backlash against this Amblin-esque tale of a boy and his dog.  A-X-L rocks.  I mean, for those teens out there that are forever the outcast or picked on by the assholes of the world out there then this movie   ...

Murder Rock (1984) - Blu-ray Review

Hat pins through the heart!  She definitely IS a maniac.  The massive worldwide success of Flashdance has repercussions, Ladies and Gents, even when it comes to the Italian giallo.  A musical murder mystery tour with T&A?  Sign me up, man.  Just don’t ask ...

White Boy Rick (2018) - Movie ReviewSet in the bombed-out husk of 1980’s Detroit, White Boy Rick tells the rather incredible true story of Rick Wershe, Jr., a down-and-out kid who became the youngest ever FBI informant at the tender young age of 14  ...

Saturday the 14th (1981) - Blu-ray Review

"If you weren't immortal, you'd kill yourself!" Welcome back to the house where only The Twilight Zone is on the television set.  It is as creaky place where even the décor blows dust in your face.  It doesn’t matter the hour; doesn’t matter the day, The Twilight Zone remains ...

Bad Times at the El Royale - Movie ReviewNothing in Bad Times at the El Royale is as it seems. Not the story, not the characters, not even the hotel itself as it sits astraddle the Nevada-California state line and wears the duality of its colliding worlds of past and present as a cherished badge of honor. ...

Howling III (1987) - Blu-rayWerewolf nuns, Imogen Annesley’s marsupial “pouch” right up in your face, and Tasmanian tigers.  That’s what is tucked inside this hairy mess of a werewolf film.  With a clever and humorous nod to cheesy B-movies, the third film in The Howling franchise was for many  ...

A Simple Favor - Blu-ray Review

Nancy Drew knows too much.  There is an elegance to the mystery that surrounds A Simple Favor.  It is made so much richer thanks to the performance from Anna Kendrick who, once again, nails her character with her quirky energy and down to earth nature.  With ...

Skinner (1993) - Blu-ray ReviewSometimes it takes Time itself to catch up with a movie.  This is the case with director Ivan Nagy’s Skinner.  Hailing from the beginning of the 1990s and twisted as hell, this film is responsible for many a late night in my younger and wilder days.  This is an odd tale of serial killing ...

Death Kiss - Movie ReviewCharles Bronson is back! Our fearless avenging angel has taken to the streets once again to kick a whole lot of criminal ass. Thank GOD. I already feel safe knowing that his 32-caliber nickel Colt revolver is blazing out of its 4-inch barrel again ...

8mm - (1999) - Blu-ray ReviewToning down the pornography and turning up the violence, Joel Schumacher’s 8mm remains a disturbing look at the uglier side of the pornography business.  The film stars Nicolas Cage as private detective Tom Welles and Joaquin Phoenix as an adult video clerk  ...

Venom - Blu-ray Review“Wow.  I have a parasite,” says Eddie to the clerk.  He just ATE a man threatening her with a gun.  She's speechless.  What better words could there be to describe Eddie Brock’s transformative condition?   “I am NOT a parasite,” roars the raging monster within him.  We hear  ...

Jungle Holocaust - Blu-ray ReviewThere is a sudden peace next to the river here.  Amidst all the brown colors in this barren jungle of mud, this one moment of fertile green breaks through: a native woman cradles her newly born baby.  A man and a woman, seconds earlier, were racing for their lives and now  ...
