Rest in Pieces (1987) - Blu-ray Review

Rest in Pieces (1987)

They don’t make ‘em like this anymore! Spanish director José Ramón Larraz offered some exploitation masterpieces in his time behind the camera.  From the SIN-sation that is Vampyres to the unnerving brilliance that is Black Candles, Larraz was known for his fiery persona ...

The New Mutants - 4K Blu-ray Review

The New MutantsWell, this one had a pained and storied journey to the big screen. Filmed in 2017 after three years of developed, and falling prey to 20th Century Fox indecision, this Josh Boone directed X-Men spin-off production went through several re-workings before, during and after (in fact LONG after)  ...

The King of Staten Island (2020) - Blu-ray Review

The King of Staten IslandThere’s something about a Judd Apatow film that identifies itself almost immediately.

The Rental (2020) - Blu-ray Review

The Rental

If you’ve not yet become totally comfortable with the whole AirBnB home-sharing thing yet, then stay away from The Rental. It’s the new film from first-time director Dave Franco (yes, that Dave Franco) and it plays off the distrust many have about staying in the home of a complete stranger. Think about ...
