Stake Land 2 (2016) - Blu-ray Review

Stakeland II - Blu-ray ReviewWith stunning landscapes and a healthy dose of gore, Stake Land 2 stands tall right next to its heavily praised first outing.  Not much has changed in the landscape, but the delivery is a bit more charged.  In my review of the first film, I described the Stake Land atmosphere ...

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back - Blu-ray Review

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back - Movie Review2012 saw the wildly popular Lee Childs bestselling books come to life on the big screen with Jack Reacher, a film that caught most by surprise with its bad-ass vintage style and tone that harkened back to the he-man, classic car-chase films of the ‘70s like Bullitt and The French  ...

Bloody Moon (1981) - Blu-ray Review

Bloody Moon (1981) - Blu-ray ReviewNipple inpalements, even in a movie, are just too painful to watch.  Bloody Moon is probably director Jesús Franco’s most accessible movie.  I’m not saying it is his best movie, mind you, but – considering the unique weirdness of his vast body of work – it is a relative straight shooter ...

Ouija: Origin of Evil - Blu-ray Review

Ouija: Origin of Evil - Blu-ray ReviewArmed with a healthy dose of much needed restraint, director Mike Flanagan (Oculus) and co-writer Jeff Howard collaborate to save Ouija: Origin of Evil from the haunting lows of its predecessor.  It’s incredible to see just how much better the prequel is when compared to the  ...

The Survivor (1981) - Blu-ray Review

The Survivor (1981) - Blu-ray ReviewThe Survivor has finally made its landing on blu-ray.  Never heard of it, eh?  Honestly, I’m not surprised as it is an interesting experiement in horror that doesn't always do what it needs to do in order to be successful.  British author James Herbert’s novel might have been ...

Blood Mania/Point of Terror - Blu-ray ReviewAh, the 1970s! There are few things more terrifying than cinematic vanity projects – especially when the results are far from fantastic.

The Magnificent Seven (2016) - Movie Review

Before we get started, let’s get one thing out of the way. Get off your high horse about The Magnificent Seven being a remake. We mustn't forget that 1960’s The Magnificent Seven was itself a remake of an earlier – and better – film called The Seven Samurai. All three  ...

Poltergeist III: Collector’s Edition (1988) - Blu-ray Review

Poltergeist III: Collector's Edition (1988) - Blu-ray ReviewWe’re baaaack!!!! Poltergeist III is a better idea than it is a movie. Maybe it should never have been connected to the franchise at all.
