Crazy Triple Features: Olive Films’ VOODOO MAN, UNDERCOVER BLUES & PHASE IV Blurays

As weird as it can be, I love to take three films that have NOTHING to do with each other and watch them back to back. Sure, nothing beats binge watching any of my favorite franchises like the HALLOWEEN, FRIDAY THE 13TH or A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET films, but this odd triple feature approach […]

Review: BOUND TO VENGEANCE

When it comes to female captive/revenge films, it’s become such a common practice of injecting rape scenes to inject a hefty amount of shock into what is an already scary idea of a situation. It’s been done so much within the last 30 years, that it’s easy to find yourself expecting it in these types […]

Bluray Review: SHOCK ‘EM DEAD (1990)

There’s something magical about a lot of the cheesy films that the late ’80s and early ’90s put out. Wild stories that wouldn’t even be a thought to a studio execs these days, the films that filled VHS shelves and gathered dust in video stores everywhere are the ones I loved to check out. Some […]

Bluray Review: TROLL/TROLL 2/BEST WORST MOVIE

Oh Scream Factory, how I love thee. Growing up, I was exposed to quite a few films that left a mark on me. Everything from HELLRAISER and A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, to Charles Band’s Empire Pictures classics such as ELIMINATORS, FROM BEYOND and PRISON. One of the films that fell into the Empire Pictures […]

Bluray Review: MULHOLLAND DR

What kind of message are the filmmakers trying to convey? What is the lesson learned in the end? David Lynch’s […]

Bluray Review: ARMY OF DARKNESS

With how many DVD/Bluray releases the EVIL DEAD series has had over the years, it’s a given that Scream Factory’s announcement of their collector’s edition ARMY OF DARKNESS Bluray would be met with some skepticism. After all, if you’re a horror fan and you haven’t purchased at least five different editions over the years, then something’s […]

Bluray Review: TALES FROM THE CRYPT PRESENTS: DEMON KNIGHT/BORDELLO OF BLOOD

Horror fans have been dying for a good HD release of TALES FROM THE CRYPT PRESENTS: DEMON KNIGHT for quite some time, and thanks to gang at Scream Factory, we not only have just that, but a special edition Bluray of release of BORDELLO OF BLOOD as well. Both releases feature brand new commentaries, as […]

Bluray Review: THE LARRY FESSENDEN COLLECTION

It’s impossible to speak on independent horror/genre films without mentioning the name Larry Fessenden. A true auteur and renaissance man, Fessenden has not only written and directed his own films, but through his company, Glass Eye Pix, Larry has helped pave the way for up and coming filmmakers looking to tell personal and original stories, […]
