Popcorn: Collector's Steelbook Edition (1991) - Blu-ray Review

Popcorn: Collector's Steelbook Edition (1991) - Blu-ray Review“Come into my head.  Come into my head.  COME INTO MY HEAD,” is the hypnotizing command from the crispy mouth of Lanyard Gates, who killed his family and set fire to his own theater.  It is a beckoning for aspiring film writer Maggie Butler (Jill Schoelen) and a challenge ...

Scream and Scream Again (1970) - Blu-ray Review

Scream and Scream Again (1970) - Blu-ray ReviewBelieve it or not, the very first time actors Vincent Price, Christopher Lee, and Peter Cushing were in the same film together was in 1970 with Scream and Scream Again.  While only two of the three horror icons share screen time together, their appearance in this weird title ...

The Void (2016) - Blu-ray Review

The Void - Blu-ray ReviewDo I dare say it?  Do I dare suggest such blasphemy?  I do.  In my opinion, we’ve just witnessed the next evolution of horror with the release of The Void.  It is a film that matches, frame for frame, the otherworldly bizarreness and esoteric terror of Clive Barker’s Hellraiser ...

The Mad Magician (1954) - Blu-ray Review

The Mad Magician - Blu-ray ReviewDirector John Brahm knows how to create mood.  I praised his efforts in my reviews for The Lodger and The Undying Monster, but with Vincent Price in 1954’s The Mad Magician, he adds a new dimension to terror.  By mixing the 3D technology of the time period with shockingly ...

Brain Damage: Limited Edition (1988) - Blu-ray Review

Brain Damage (1988) - Blu-ray ReviewI’m just going to go ahead and say (and spray) it everywhere.  Exploitation filmmaker Frank Henenlotter is one of the few remaining mad geniuses of the cinema; he’s a walking masterpiece of the b-movie.  Horror Hounds and Gore-Gore girls, this is what happens when  ...

Making Contact (1985) - Blu-ray Review

Making Contact (1985) - Blu-ray ReviewI bet you probably didn’t know that Darth Vader made an appearance in another film shortly after the release of Return of the Jedi.  I also bet you didn’t know that a fat kid’s biggest fear is to be eaten by a double cheeseburger.  It’s all true.  Making Contact, an Amblin ...
