The Return of the Living Dead: Collector's Edition - Blu-ray ReviewThank you, Scream Factory for this updated treat! Operating as neither a sequel to or a part of George A.

Doctor Mordrid: Master of the Unknown (1992) - Blu-ray Review

Doctor Mordrid (1992) - Blu-ray ReviewDoctor Mordrid: Master of the Unknown is not a very good movie. Even on our pint scale of beer it earns the lowest ranking possible.

The Swinging Cheerleaders (1974) - Blu-ray Review

The Swinging Cheerleaders - Blu-ray ReviewFor anyone who hates on exploitation film auteur Jack Hill’s The Swinging Cheerleaders for its objectification of women – namely cheerleaders – there’s a need for a brief lesson in film and cultural history.  Made during the 1970s, Hill’s movie was a very tough and very real examination of powerful  ...

Jeepers Creeper II - Blu-ray ReviewOne would have to dig clear through the classic era of Universal Monster Movies in order to find a title that is a Jeepers Creepers equivalent in tone, structure, and suspense.  And that’s a good thing.  Writer/director Victor Salva explores his love of classic creature features  ...
