Shawscope Volume One - Limited EditionThis set from Arrow Video is arguably their best release yet.  It is indeed a labor of love as the company has carefully curated and gorgeously presented a selection of all-time Shaw Brothers classics in this box set.  You read that correctly.  From King Boxer to Mighty Peking Man and everything  ...

Jack Frost 2: Revenge Of The Mutant Killer SnowmanMake no mistake about it.  Jack Frost 2: Revenge Of The Mutant Killer Snowman is not a great movie.  It might not even be that necessary considering the first one was all bark and little bite, but as we are talking about a psychotic (and in this one, resurrected) snowman who kills for jollies, I guess ...

Jack Frost: Collector’s EditionThe new comedy starring Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson called The Hustle is an almost identical remake of the 1988 classic comedy Dirty Rotten Scoundrels which starred Michael Caine and Steve Martin - itself a remake of Marlon Brando’s Bedtime Story. I say “almost” because  ...

Dune (1984): 4K UHD

“The worm is the spice!  The spice is the worm!” David Lynch’s Dune might not be the director’s favorite movie-making experience.  It also might not be on any science fiction fan’s top 10 list (although it probably should be).  Those sentences alone do not make Lynch’s attempt at bringing ...

Kolchak: The Night Stalker - The Complete SeriesThe man with the straw hat is back!  And so are his ghoulish finds in the windy city of Chicago.  Watergate era television doesn’t get much better than with Kolchak: The Night Stalker.  And that, my friends, is a certified fact. It begins in a dingy motel room.  A cassette player is on.  A disheveled  ...

Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978)“Can you still do the things with your eyes?  You’re not crazy if you can still do the thing with your eyes.” I will NEVER forget the first time I saw Philip Kaufman’s Invasion of the Body Snatchers.  I wouldn’t go outside in the rain for weeks afterwards thanks to the opening few minutes of  ...

All The Haunts Be Ours: A Compendium of Folk Horror Box SetFolk Horror.  The very combination of the words suggest a clash of ideologies and, true to its nature, this seems to be its roots.  It is a concept of evil so entwined with the land that it is damn near impossible to ever tear its threads clean.  The voices in the woods; the pagan ceremonies on the  ...

The Unhealer (2020)Opening with a classic song from a bygone era is a bold move for this supernatural coming-of-age story about a bullied teen who takes matters into his own hands.  Especially when that familiar chorus - as The Platters’ own Tony Williams soars vocally - kicks in and the audience witnesses  ...

Werewolves Within

And just like that . . . a future cult classic has arrived! Based on a Ubisoft game and featuring a wonderful cast and of solidly realized characters, Werewolves Within is the whodunnit horror/comedy of the year.  Fresh as the falling snow that has cut off the small town at the center of this  ...

Saint Maud

Your savior has arrived! There’s something wrong with Maud (Morfydd Clark, Crawl).  This is important to identify correctly as we are with the poor girl for the entire movie.  In fact, we never leave her side no matter what happens or what dark forces take over her body as they communicate ...
