    Jerry and Natty Tackle Marilyn Manson’s “Holy Wood (In the Shadow of the Valley of Death) “

    We’re without a figure to lead the way. Every generation has one of them, and these days, there really isn’t anyone out there challenging the ideals of the Christian right, the masses putting the blame on everybody from musicians to filmmakers for the tragedies that could have been avoided with proper treatment of the individuals […]

    Bluray Review: ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK

    Scream Factory has most certainly done a fine job of bringing a lot of John Carpenter’s filmography to genre fans everywhere. With great collector’s edition Blurays of everything from Carpenter’s PRINCE OF DARKNESS, THEY LIVE and ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13, to the complete HALLOWEEN collection and even Carpenter’s BODY BAGS anthology. It’s been great to […]

Personally, I love anything with […]

    Bluray Review: FROM A WHISPER TO A SCREAM (aka-THE OFFSPRING)

    Sometimes a release comes that could very easily be worth the price of purchase, just based on the film itself. Sure, it’s always a plus to have some kickass special features, and that’s good and all, but some films just grab you by the collar and scream out: BUY ME!! Those releases are fine, but […]

Review: HALO NIGHTFALL

Making a film adaption of a popular video game series can be somewhat of a tricky endeavor. When you already have a set fanbase expecting the elements of the games translated perfectly into film form, the chance of making a successful one is more time than not, a disappointment. Unfortunately, such is the case with […]

REVIEW: Digging Up The Marrow

I’ve never been particularly shy about my love of most of the stuff put out by Adam Green.  I’ve gone on record multiple times discussing how HOLLISTON was one of my biggest “pick-me-ups” during cancer recovery and how I firmly believe “The Dog Monologue” from FROZEN is probably my favorite horror movie monologue since the […]

Review: SPRING

Every year, a select few films are able to do what most filmmakers aspire to: transcend the genre the film would typically fall into and become something else, something greater. These films not only entertain us (as they should), but invoke an emotional response for one reason or another. Maybe the viewer has gone through […]

Review: SOMETHING WICKED

A suspenseful tale is always something that I find incredibly easy to jump into. There’s nothing like a mystery, one that leads you down a path with its characters, and providing its share of twists, catching you off guard. The flipside to that ability to engage a film’s audience is when a mystery story doesn’t […]

SXSW Review: HE NEVER DIED

The mention of Henry Rollins tends to bring the idea of a ticking time bomb, ready to blow at any second. The former Black Flag/Rollins Band front-man is known for his colossal amount of energy and pretty strong presence in general. Having previously appeared in films like FEAST and TV shows such as Sons of […]
