Review: TREMORS 5


1990’s TREMORS was a hit with audiences and was one of the first horror comedies that really took off and appealed to its viewers, offering up likable characters, great special fx, and villainous mega-sized worms called “Graboids” that would instantly become horror favorites.

Beyond Fright review: DOG DAY AFTERNOON (40th Anniversary Bluray)


I’m a massive fan of heist films. There’s just something so entertaining and gripping as sitting down and watching films like HEAT, RESERVOIR DOGS, or in this case, DOG DAY AFTERNOON.
