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

The Alien Factor - blu-ray reviewI freakin’ love The Alien Factor.  Filmed in Baltimore, Maryland by a bunch of freaks and geeks, the schlocky film is a throwback to the classic run of 1950’s creature features and has just the right amount of humor and gore to make it worth revisiting time and time again  ...

The Hateful Eight - Blu-ray Review

The Hateful Eight - Movie ReviewQuentin Tarantino does it again!

Ant-Man - Blu-ray Review

Ant-man - Movie ReviewThey say it’s not the size, it’s how you use it. Ant-Man, with its emphasis on all things microscopic, is proof of the truth in that saying.
