The Thing with Two Heads (1972) - Blu-ray Review

The Thing With Two Heads - Blu-ray ReviewWhile it features an extended car chase via dirt bike and subsequent police car pileup to rival the one found in The Blues Brothers, Lee Frost’s The Thing with Two Heads is a serious head-scratcher of a Blaxploitation flick. Interestingly enough, visual effects artist   ...

Southpaw - Movie Review

Exeter - Movie Review

Exeter - Movie REviewExeter, a horror film that features a makeshift exorcism and something equivalent to human protein shakes, is potentially the shot in the arm the genre needs. It’s bloody, somewhat humorous, and ends with a twist that many won’t see coming. I’m not suggesting that the movie is   ...

Truck Turner (1974) - Blu-ray Review

It is the type of B-movie that gets me so excited for the unlimited possibilities of low budget cinema.
