Psychomania (1973) - Blu-ray Review

Psychomania (1973) - Blu-ray ReviewMotorcycles and gas-gobbling b-grade movies go hand in hand. These are the high-octane flicks that cost little to make, yet remain unforgettable. Slap their images on the larger than life drive-in screen and walk away and producers can count their dollar bills all the way to ...

Deluge (1933) - Blu-ray Review

Deluge (1933) - Blu-ray ReviewReleased by RKO Radio Pictures in 1933, director Felix E. Feist’s Deluge, a super-soaker of a destruction film, was long thought lost due to neglect. It was almost as if the film never existed. For the longest time, it seemed that only a ragged Italian print remained of this special  ...

One Million Years B.C. (1966) - Blu-ray Review

One Million Years B.C. - Blu-ray Review and DetailsThe British go prehistoric with this wild adventure.  One Million Years B.C. is a special effects bonanza with a variety of creatures created by the famed Ray Harryhausen himself.  Of course, none of that matters in this film because all eyes are on the amazing special effects  ...

Stake Land 2 (2016) - Blu-ray Review

Stakeland II - Blu-ray ReviewWith stunning landscapes and a healthy dose of gore, Stake Land 2 stands tall right next to its heavily praised first outing.  Not much has changed in the landscape, but the delivery is a bit more charged.  In my review of the first film, I described the Stake Land atmosphere ...

Bloody Moon (1981) - Blu-ray Review

Bloody Moon (1981) - Blu-ray ReviewNipple inpalements, even in a movie, are just too painful to watch.  Bloody Moon is probably director Jesús Franco’s most accessible movie.  I’m not saying it is his best movie, mind you, but – considering the unique weirdness of his vast body of work – it is a relative straight shooter ...

Wild Beasts (1983) - Blu-ray Review

Wild Beasts (1983) - Blu-ray Review“She’s not crazy, she’s being chased by a cheetah!” And in this way, Italian filmmaker Franco Prosperi brings animal attraction to a whole new level. Having broken free of the mondo documentaries he is partially responsible for, he went feral with his first horror film. Now ...

The Survivor (1981) - Blu-ray Review

The Survivor (1981) - Blu-ray ReviewThe Survivor has finally made its landing on blu-ray.  Never heard of it, eh?  Honestly, I’m not surprised as it is an interesting experiement in horror that doesn't always do what it needs to do in order to be successful.  British author James Herbert’s novel might have been ...

Blood Mania/Point of Terror: Limited Edition (1970, 1971) - Blu-ray Review

Blood Mania/Point of Terror - Blu-ray ReviewAh, the 1970s! There are few things more terrifying than cinematic vanity projects – especially when the results are far from fantastic. Vinegar Syndrome – now diving into Crown International’s backlog of obscure titles – presents two of actor Peter Carpenter’s more ...

Bloody Birthday (1981) - Blu-ray Review

Bloody Birthday (1981) - Blu-rayThere’s a solar eclipse this Friday.  There’s also a visible green comet streaking across the skies.  It will, in addition, also be a full moon that night.  If you are a teacher, get a substitute.  If you are elsewhere in the public sphere, know that the only safe place will be under ...

Poltergeist III: Collector’s Edition (1988) - Blu-ray Review

Poltergeist III: Collector's Edition (1988) - Blu-ray ReviewWe’re baaaack!!!! Poltergeist III is a better idea than it is a movie. Maybe it should never have been connected to the franchise at all. But it was and – due to the sudden death of Heather O’Rourke – it became something everyone but the studio wanted to write off....
