Contamination (1980) - Blu-ray Review

Contamination (1980) - Movie ReviewItalian horror filmmakers have a long and fascinating history of taking a successful Hollywood idea and running with it until at least 10 films, all with different titles, have beaten its singular uniqueness into the ground.

Dog Soldiers: Collector's Edition (2002) - Blu-ray Review

Dog Soldiers - Movie ReviewWriter/director Neil Marshall doesn’t always get the respect he so admirably deserves. It seems that Hollywood has put all their eggs in Neill Blomkamp’s basket.

WolfCop - Blu-ray Review
