Space Raiders (1983) - Blu-ray Review

Sapce Raiders - Blu-ray ReviewProduced by Roger Corman in what amounts to a marketing miracle, Howard R.

Biohazard: Specially Signed Edition (1985) - Blu-ray Review

Biohazard - Movie ReviewDirector Fred Olen Ray’s Biohazard is probably the best example of just how universally mutated the creature features coming out of the 1980s were becoming with their mix of gore, boobs, and lasers.

Mad Max: Fury Road - Blu-ray Review

Mad Max: Fury Road - Movie ReviewNow, THIS is how you restart a stalled franchise. Violent, gritty, and powerful, Mad Max: Fury Road is one hell of an over-the-top thrill ride.
