Carrie: Collector's Edition (1976) - Blu-ray Review

Carrie: Collector's Edition - Blu-ray Review and DetailsTo this day, there remains something insanely special about director Brian De Palma’s Carrie.  It is based on the once-discarded novel by Stephen King, but was painstakingly adapted for the screen by Lawrence D. Cohen.  Cohen got everything about King’s first novel right  ...

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  ...

Bill & Ted’s Most Excellent Collection (1989 – 1991)

Bill & Ted's Most Excellent Collection - Blu-ray ReviewDude.  Talk about a blast from the past.  Duuuuude.  Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure is already a comedy classic from the latter part of the 1980s.  Had it failed to connect with audiences, there would be no Beavis & Butthead.  There would be no Wayne’s World.  While we ...

Hellbent: Limited Edition (1988) - Blu-ray Review

Hellbent: Limited Edition (1988) - Blu-ray ReviewVinegar Syndrome isn’t through with writer/director Richard Casey just yet.  Hot off the heels of their “loverly” HD handling of Horror House on Highway 5 comes his second feature, Hellbent.  This punkish fever dream is awash with neon splashes and a hyper-realized set   ...

It (1990) - Blu-ray

It (1990) - Blu-ray ReviewHands down, It is the best killer clown movie around to ever roll out onto ANY screen.  The miniseries itself might be a tad uneven, but nothing beats Tim Curry’s performance as the killer clown haunting one small town in Maine. I am just going to assume that NO ONE – especially  ...

Phantasm: RaVager - Blu-ray Review

Phantasm: RaVager - Blu-ray Cover

The Phantasm series completes its offbeat rotation around the sun with the release of Phantasm: RaVager this Friday.  It is a movie that is both a fitting goodbye to the late Angus Scrimm and, operating as the fifth and final movie in the series, a fitting conclusion.  As you are more...

The Earth Dies Screaming (1964) - Blu-ray Review

The Earth Dies Screaming (1964) - Blu-ray ReviewCruising rather comfortably on its low budget, Hammer Horror director Terence Fisher’s The Earth Dies Screaming has one of the fiercest and most engaging openings to every kick off a science fiction flick.  The Earth Dies Screaming literally begins with THE END of the  ...

All Through the House (2015) - Blu-ray Review

All Through the House (2015) - Blu-ray ReviewGarden shears.  It had to be garden shears.  Ho! Ho! Ho!  Let the stabbing begin!  Written and directed by Todd Nunes, All Through The House is a Christmas-themed slasher that makes for a better trailer than it does a movie.  I’m not saying that, as far as independent ...

Horror House on Highway 5: Limited Edition (1985) - Blu-ray Review

Horror House on Highway 5 (1985) - Blu-ray ReviewThere are few things MORE terrifying to me than an exaggerated Richard Nixon mask.  I don’t know why.  Maybe it’s the extended nose or the heavily-lined cheeks, but it just creeps me the fuck out.  In fact, it might be the single most terrifying thing that I know of.  You’re aware of  ...
