Creepshow 2 (1987) - Blu-ray Review

Creepshow 2 - Blu-ray ReviewThe follow-up to the 1982 hit Creepshow probably arrived three years too late.  While George A. Romero and Stephen King are involved with the project, it simply doesn’t have the same deadly bite that the first one did.  Directed by Michael Gornick and written by Romero, the  ...

Phantasm: Remastered (1979) - Blu-ray Review

Phantasm: Remastered (1979) - Blu-ray ReviewThanks to J.J. Abrams and everyone’s efforts at Bad Robot, I have – to date – watched Phantasm more times in the past 2 months than in the whole of my entire life.  The reasons are clear.  It is, warts and all, one of the most perfect B-movies of all time.  It’s re-release in  ...

The Lodger (1944) - Blu-ray Review

The Lodger (1944) - Blu-ray ReviewLaird Cregar.  I’d like to spend a minute or two dwelling on just how awesome he is as an actor.  Hilarious in the screwball comedies he was cast in, Cregar was a very tall man of many hats and he never failed to deliver a memorable performance.  He was an imposing figure  ...

Jack Frost: Limited Edition Lenticular Artwork (1997) - Blu-ray Review

Jack Frost: Limited Edition Leniticular Artwork (1977) - Blu-ray ReviewJack Frost has been granted an extended life, Ghouls and Boils!  With more schlock than shock, this earnest slasher is truly a gift to manunkind.  Wait.  Don’t tell me you’ve never heard of this one, fellow freaks.  No, it does NOT star Michael Keaton as a harmonica-blowing  ...

The Alien Dead: Limited Signed Edition (1978) - Blu-ray Review

The Alien Dead - Blu-ray ArtworkIt came from outer space to eat the living! With this tag, Fred Olen Ray’s The Alien Dead arrived in theaters. This was his first theatrically released film and, while it underperformed, there’s no denying that a legacy for schlock was born. While the B-movie disappeared  ...

The Neptune Factor (1973) - Blu-ray Review

The Neptune Factor (1973) - Blu-ray ReviewWhile the results are far from perfect, The Neptune Factor probably began its life as an imagined undersea adventure with some unexpected moments of the bizarre.  It’s certainly creative with what it offers, but the results are beyond disappointing.  The film cuts its characters  ...

Rabid (1977): Collector's Edition Blu-ray ReviewWindows up.  Doors locked.  Such is the paranoid view that David Cronenberg’s Rabid presents in his commercial follow-up to his debut, Shivers.  Quebec and Montréal, due to a highly suspect procedure received by Rose, the lead character actress Marilyn Chambers ...

I Drink Your Blood: Limited Horror Hypo Edition (1971) - Blu-ray Review

I Drink Your Blood - Blu-ray ReviewIt is the first film to receive an X rating solely for its violent content.  I Drink Your Blood is also a masterpiece of the drive-in.  Its debut on blu-ray, thanks to Grindhouse Releasing, is an important one.  It is not to be missed. Writer/director David Durston (ABC’s Tales of ...

C.H.U.D. 2: Bud the C.H.U.D. (1988) - Blu-ray Review“I’m a hungry man!”  When Vestron Pictures originally released C.H.U.D. 2: Bud the C.H.U.D. back in 1988, they knew exactly the type of movie they had on their hands.  And it wasn’t a horror flick.  The sheer lunacy of following up a horror film with a straight comedy might ...
