Jack Reacher: Never Go Back - Movie 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  ...

Ouija: Origin of Evil - Movie Review

Ouija: Origin of Evil - Movie 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 Pit (1981) - Blu-ray Review

The Pit (1981) - Blu-ray ReviewWhen Canadians do horror, good things tend to happen.

Alice Through the Looking Glass - Blu-ray Review

Alice Through the Looking Glass - Movie ReviewTime is a thief” utters Alice Through the Looking Glass’s star Mia Wasikowska.

The Hills Have Eyes (1977) - Blu-ray Review

The Hills Have Eyes (1977) - Blu-ray ReviewI am not a huge fan of Horror maestro Wes Craven.  I tend to check out of the whole adoration club when the discussion turns to his most recent offerings.  Yes, Scream included.  I just think that, of all the names in horror, his filmography is one of the spottiest.  ...

The Astro-Zombies (1968) - Blu-ray Review

Astro Zombies - Blu-ray ReviewTo the outside eye, The Astro-Zombies is probably not regarded as the greatest of monster flicks.  Clocking in at 91-minutes, the b-grade entertainment at the center of this Mad Scientist tale is far too long.  Several scenes meander in and out of all rational thought as  ...
