It is time, my friends, to go back to the woods.

31 is, as it should be, a sick and twisted night on the midway

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 ...

The Mind's Eye - Blu-ray Review

The Mind's Eye - Movie ReviewThe Mind’s Eye is something special.  Look right below the title of this review.  You’ll notice the pints-of-beer rating, meaning that the film automatically falls into the B-movie category – even though it’s hitting theaters now.  I’m not going to pretend with you about the film and  ...

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  ...

The Birth of a Nation (2016) - Movie Review

The Birth of a Nation (2016) - Movie ReviewThough it borrows the title of D.W. Griffith’s 1915 silent film, 2016’s The Birth of a Nation isn’t a remake of that earlier film. In fact, other than the common subject of slavery in mid-nineteenth century America, the two are virtual polar opposites, with the original widely considered  ...

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  ...
