Ray Harryhausen: Special Effects Titan (2011) - Blu-ray Review

Ray Harryhausen: Special Effects Titan - blu-ray ReviewThere are few other visual effects artists that I know of who continually inspire filmmakers as significant to the medium than that of special effects guru Ray Harryhausen.  His name alone conjures up images of giants, sword-fighting skeletons, monsters, and, hell, Medusa  ...

The House That Screamed (1969) - Blu-ray Review

31 - Blu-ray Review

31 - Movie ReviewZombie is not finished with Halloween just yet, Boils and Ghouls. Rob Zombie’s 31 is not nearly as good as you’ll want it to be.  It’s also not as bad as other critics are suggesting it is.  The film does EXACTLY what it needs to do, but without establishing any real purpose  ...
