Carrie: Collector's Edition (1976) - Blu-ray Review

Carrie: Collector's Edition - Blu-ray Review and DetailsTo this day, there remains something insanely special about director Brian De Palma’s Carrie.  It is based on the once-discarded novel by Stephen King, but was painstakingly adapted for the screen by Lawrence D. Cohen.  Cohen got everything about King’s first novel right  ...

The Hills Have Eyes (1977) - Blu-ray Review

The Hills Have Eyes (1977) - Blu-ray ReviewI am not a huge fan of Horror maestro Wes Craven.  I tend to check out of the whole adoration club when the discussion turns to his most recent offerings.  Yes, Scream included.  I just think that, of all the names in horror, his filmography is one of the spottiest.  ...

The Astro-Zombies (1968) - Blu-ray Review

Astro Zombies - Blu-ray ReviewTo the outside eye, The Astro-Zombies is probably not regarded as the greatest of monster flicks.  Clocking in at 91-minutes, the b-grade entertainment at the center of this Mad Scientist tale is far too long.  Several scenes meander in and out of all rational thought as  ...

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  ...
