    The summer of the year that brought the 20th century to a close, for me, was a fantastic and exciting time.

    TV Review: DEAD OF SUMMER – Episode 5: “How to Stay Alive In The Woods”

    It’s 2016, over 20 years since we were first introduced to the Candyman and Tony Todd is still scary as shit. With a voice that demands a 5.1 set up, he still has a screen presence that few come close to and makes me hold my breath every time his arms are out stretched towards […]

Manhunter

Scream Factory set to send the Tooth Fairy your way with May 24th Collector’s Edition release of MANHUNTER!!; Full Specs Announced!

While a lot of people tend to reference THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS as their introduction to all things Hannibal Lecter, I grew up adoring the hell out of Michael Mann’s 1986 thriller MANHUNTER.
