Dark Harvest/Escapes (1992, 1986) - DVD Review

Dark Harvest/Escapes - Blu-ray ReviewLow-grade exploitation – shot on VHS – is a damn funny thing to sit back and review.  You pretty much know what to expect.  Shoddy SOV quality, undisciplined filmmaking, blurry images, static shots, and – as this one features murderous scarecrows on the loose across ...

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  ...
