BLU-RAY/MOVIE REVIEW: Tales from the Crypt / Vault of Horror




Okay, anyone that knows me, knows I love Tales from the Crypt, anthology films and well, horror in general. So, of course when I put in the fantastic two pack Tales from the Crypt / Vault of Horror Blu-ray from Scream Factory, you know I'm going to love it and love it I did. Although, I will admit that I enjoyed Tales from the Crypt a little more than Vault of Horror, but that isn't to say I didn't like Vault either, as both are fantastic anthology films, worthy of being picked up today.

BLU-RAY/MOVIE REVIEW: DEADLY EYES





Rats everywhere! Deadly Eyes is all about giant steroid rats rampaging through the sewers of Toronto, feasting on people and the occasional baby. It's a low budget, gritty looking film, that has a lot in common with a couple films that came before it, like Alligator and Piranha. Even with a low budget of about $900,000, Deadly Eyes, also known as Night Eyes as seen on Scream Factory's film source, is a lot of fun, with some really gnarly kill scenes and a surprisingly effective use of having dogs dressed as rats. Read on to see what the movie is like and whether the Blu-ray is worth it....

PRESS RELEASE: The Blob on Blu-ray from Fabulous Films


The only other version of The Blob (original classic) on Blu-ray that I know of is from Criterion Films, which costs a good amount of money. Now, you have another option of getting it on Blu-ray, but only if you can play Region B discs. Thankfully, yours truly can and I'll be putting up a review of this classic once I get a copy. For now, check out the press release below.

Shock Waves Blu-ray/Movie Review





Zombies are pretty much over cooked nowadays, but Nazi Zombies? Nahh. For some reason, I just can't get enough of them. Shock Waves, a movie released in 1977, is one of the few Nazi Zombie movies that is actually pretty damn good and surprisingly, the actual zombies in the movie? Not really zombies, but more like the undead, who look menacing and are severely pissed off. Although the movie lacks any sort of gore, the rest of the film, with the tropical island set pieces, under water Nazi Zombie sequences and a beautiful bikini clad Brooke Adams, more than makes up for it.

ROLLERBALL Blu-ray/Movie Review




I really wanted to like Rollerball, I really did. The movie started off great, with some tense rollerball action, but suddenly, it's get bogged down in a plot involving executives, early retirements and mysteries that aren't really mysteries. Oh and a strange liquid computer and a dude who goes crazy on it. On the other hand, Arrow Video has released Rollerball in a splendid Region B package, with tons of special features and some great sounding/looking audio and video. The movie has been around for 40 years and obviously has its fans, so the Blu-ray is pretty much a no brainer for those people and anyone else that enjoys amazing Blu-ray discs. With that said, lets roll on with this review and see what it's all about.

MUCK Movie Review

Wow, now this was a big disappoint. I didn't read up much on this movie before going in, all I knew was that Kane Hodder was in it and the soundtrack was good. Well... Kane Hodder was in it I guess. Dear god, this movie was terrible, just terrible. Massive amounts of style over substance and by style, I mean copying everything that was done before and not offering anything new. Hey, at least we get a bunch of fake boobies and butts to look at. That's something right? Right? Anyone? Hello?

WolfCop Movie Review

Okay, I know WolfCop isn't supposed to be taken seriously in the least bit and honestly, expectations are meant to be super low going in, but still, at least try to not look like a made for Canadian TV show. Reeking of low budget, TV-ness, WolfCop has some awful acting, some hit or miss comedy and a story that is kind of dumb, but you know what, I'd love for there to a sequel, just so they can give it another shot. Howl on to see if you agree...

Love At First Bite/Once Bitten Blu-ray/Movie Review

Another vampire two pack offering coming at you from Scream Factory and this time, we got one funny, quirky 80s gem by the way of Once Bitten and another late 70s, trying ever so hard to be funny vampire flick, Love At First Bite. This Blu-ray isn't loaded with any sort of special features and the movies aren't top notch classics, but if you find it cheap, what better way to kill a few hours. Anyway, let's quickly go through what we got on our hands after the break...

We Are What We Are Movie Review

We Are What We Are, which I will now refer to as Wawwa from here on out, is an American remake of the Mexican film of the same name. I haven't seen the original movie, but after sitting down with Wawwa, I can't really say I have any desire to, as I was bored enough with this one (of course, I wouldn't do such a thing, as you can never base how good the original is on the quality of it's shitty remake). It's like 90 minutes of nothingness, with about 10 minutes of wow, that's pretty cool and a final 5 minutes of, wow that's really dumb. There is some tiny, tiny bit of brilliance amongst all the terrible, but treading though it can be a chore. Read on for a quick review and see if you agree...

Vampire's Kiss/High Spirits Blu-Ray/Movie Review

The latest two pack from Scream Factory is somewhat of a departure from the horror scene. Featuring two 80s "horror comedies" Vampire's Kiss and High Spirits. One movie is incredibly entertaining and original. The other is... well High Spirits.

The Phantom Cabinet Book Review

If you crack open The Phantom Cabinet, you better be prepared for a confusing, albeit, incredibly interesting story. Jeremy Thompson crafts a story that feels all over the place, yet I couldn't help but keep reading. That to me is a sign of a good book. Read on to see if you agree...
