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  ...

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)...

A Quiet Place (2018) - Movie ReviewThe horror genre is going to some interesting new places of late. With the recent critical and box office success of last year’s Get Out, the acceptance of last month’s intoxicating mind trip Annihilation, and now with A Quiet Place’s rousing world premier at Austin’s SXSW  ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Rampage (2018) - Movie ReviewRampage is really big. And really dumb. And, yes, really fun. The film works because NEVER EVER does it take itself seriously. How could it?! After all, this is a film whose only requirement is that it have a giant lizard (er, alligator), a giant wolf, and a giant ape pulverizing buildings into ...

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 ...

Ready Player One - Movie 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  ...

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 ...

Tomb Raider (2018) - Blu-ray ReviewAt least the filmmakers got the character right. Fist pumping all the way out of the theater this March, that was my big takeaway from this reboot. Finally, a Lara Croft film that felt EXACTLY like the character should. She just needed a better storyline. Maybe next time, right? ...

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 ...

Game Night (2018) - Movie ReviewWe all have that one friend. That over-stimulated, under-acknowledged, hyper-competitive jerk to whom everything in life is a game with an undeniable winner and a loser. There are a whole bunch of those kind in Game Night, the latest film by 2015’s Vacation reboot  ...

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 ...

Red Sparrow - Blu-ray ReviewIn which Katniss Everdeen gets down and dirrrty...but you still won't care.  From Russia with Love this spy game is not.  Red Sparrow is a spy movie that should work. It has a very talented cast and the story, about a former Russian ballerina who ...
