The Screaming Skull (1958) - Blu-ray Review

The Screaming Skull (1958) - Blu-ray ReviewThis film might kill you.  Honestly, truer words have seldom been spoken.  The banging window.  The knocking on the door.  Don’t investigate it, Jenni (Peggy Webber), just leave it alone.  Webber could be your plainspoken Auntie, folks, and you definitely don’t want anything ...

Sinister 2 (2015) - Blu-ray Review

Psycho Cop Returns (1993) - Blu-ray Review

Psycho Cop Returns - Blu-ray ReviewBeing the obstinate fool that I am, I have had many run-ins with local law enforcers.  I just can’t help myself.  Most of them – mustached or not – have been surprisingly accommodating, using zip ties instead of handcuffs and so on.  Of course, there’s always that asshole ...
