Pride + Prejudice + Zombies - Blu-ray Review

Pride and Prejudice and Zombie - Movie ReviewThe 2009 parody novel by Seth Grahame-Smith gets the big screen treatment (after a series of delays, setbacks, and a cast of changing actors) but the end result – a frenzied mess of stitched together and remarkably sullen clichés regardless of the genre - is simply not ...

The Green Inferno - Blu-ray Review

The Green INferno - Movie ReviewWriter/director Eli Roth (Cabin Fever, Hostel I & II, and Aftershock) might just need to be crowned the new King of Putrid.  A self-confessed connoisseur of gore and Grindhouse alum, Roth’s work in the genre is living proof that the exploitation flick is not forgotten and definitely ...

The Visit - Blu-ray Review

The Visit - Movie ReviewThere is something insane about spending time with anyone outside of the inner family circle. Think about it.

Invisible Ghost (1941) - Blu-ray Review

Invisible Ghost (1941) - Blu-ray ReviewMonogram horror titles are interesting films to watch. Always cheaply made productions with shadows that plunge into the depths of the corners, these black-and-white films – spanning from 1940 to 1946 – feature known names in the genre, yet were nothing more ...

The Boy - Blu-ray Review

The Boy - Movie ReviewIt is simply impossible to write about the events in The Boy without breaking into a serious case of the giggles.  The absurdity of a young woman babysitting a doll in a mansion that just drips with gothic goo is ripe for parody.  The situation knows no bounds and yet   ...

Sicario - Blu-ray Review

Sicario - Movie ReviewWow.  To think it was just earlier this week that I wrote about how gruesome Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno is and why that graphic repugnance is much needed in our uber-safeguarded world.  Following in step with that line of thought comes director Denis Villeneuve   ...

Witchtrap (1989) - Blu-ray Review

Witchtrap - Blu-ray ReviewWhen the dude recording the sound for your movie fucks up and every sound, squeak, dialogue, and fart has to be created in post-production, it’s probably best to inject a healthy does of camp, camp, and more camp. Kevin Tenney, the writer and director of Night of the ...

Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation - Blu-ray Review

Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation - Movie Review2012’s  criminally underrated Jack Reacher featured the debut of the Christopher McQuarrie/Tom Cruise filmmaking team.

Firestarter: Collector's Edition (1984) - Blu-ray Review

Firestarter - Blu-ray ReviewSomething powerful has been triggered deep inside a little girl.  If not nurtured correctly, it could destory us all.

Death Walks on High Heels (1971) Special Edition - Blu-ray Review

Death Walks on High Heels - Collector's Edition - Blu-ray ReviewDirected and co-produced by Luciano Ercoli, Death Walks on High Heels isn’t quite the giallo film his next one, Death Walks at Midnight, would be.  Ercoli and screenwriter Ernesto Gastaldi haven’t found their rhythm together and it shows with scenes that are a bit too self-indulgent ...
