Review: HOLY GHOST PEOPLE

If there’s one thing that has been proven throughout history, it’s that religion, in any form, can be dangerous. When someone believes in something so passionately, they can be willing to go to very extreme lengths to stand by those beliefs. That kind of fanatical belief is put under the microscope in Mitchell Altieri’s HOLY […]

Underwater Creature Feature LEVIATHAN Coming To Scream Factory Blu-ray!

One of the most underrated creature feature’s (and a personal favorite) is George P. Cosmatos’ LEVIATHAN. Sure, it’s basically an ALIEN and THE THING body-horror clone albeit with a deep sea locale, but the ensemble of character actors (ROBOCOP himself Peter Weller, GHOSTBUSTER‘s Ernie Hudson, and even THEY LIVE‘s Meg Foster as a steely corporate […]
