Happy Hunting – Review (Umbrella Entertainment DVD)

What happens when you take concepts from The Purge and The Most Dangerous Game, put them in a blender and hit purée? What would most likely come out is the film Happy Hunting, a low budget thriller from directors Joe Dietsch and Louie Gibson. Sometimes combining concepts of other movies can be a terrible idea, but other times it works out for the best. Happy Hunting falls somewhere smack dab in th...

Ronin – Review (Arrow Video Blu-ray)

When do we think the last great Robert De Niro film was? I believe Ronin is the film that capped off his career. If you take a look at his IMDb page you can see that after 1998’s Ronin, his choices of movies have been, how do we say this nicely, terrible. Honestly though, if you want to end your career on a high note, Ronin would be the way to do it. It’s a fast-paced thrill ride that ...

Amsterdamned – Review (Blue Underground Blu-ray)

Given the name of the film on the slate for review today, one could easily be mistaken thinking it was a cheese-fest horror flick. Amsterdamned certainly seems like a movie that is going be nothing but schlock, but I can 100% tell you that the film is far from being cheesy. Instead, it’s an action-packed slasher, with solid performances, a heart-pounding score by director Dick Maas and the 8...

Hell Up in Harlem – Cultsploitation Review (Olive Films Blu-ray)

Hell Up in Harlem may or may not live up to the original film, but it sure sports a lot of excellent action and over the top goodness. Oliver Film releases a nice Blu-ray.

The Running Man – Review (Lionsgate Blu-ray)

I’ve been on a big Stephen King kick for the past year, and I’m in the process of devouring anything King related. Because of that, I started reading The Bachman Books, which consist of four early books by Stephen King: Rage, The Long Walk, Roadwork and finally, The Running Man. As you’ve probably already guessed, today I’m focusing on the movie adaptation of The Running Man, starring Arnold Schwa...

Doberman Cop – Review (Arrow Video Blu-ray)

Let me be perfectly upfront, I wouldn’t usually watch Doberman Cop, but Arrow Video shot it over my way for review, so alas here I am with this feeble excuse for a review. The reason I wouldn’t watch it has nothing to do with it being a bad or good film, but only because it isn’t something that jumps out at me as a must watch. I still feel the same way even after watching the film. Of course, I kn...

Trespass – Review (Shout! Factory Blu-ray)

Trespass is a film that has a whole lot of talent behind and in front of the camera. Directed by Walter Hill, who brought us classics like The Warriors and Streets of Fire; written by Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale, the duo behind the Back to the Future franchise. The film stars Bill Paxton, William Sadler (Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight), Ice T and Ice Cube (arguably the last two are subjective...

Red Dawn – Review (Shout! Factory Blu-ray)

The cold war may be over now, but in 1984, tensions were still high. The fear came from all sides of the border, and everyone knew that it just took one unstable leader to plummet the world into World War III. Thankfully, that never happened, but if it did, I could easily see Red Dawn as the story that told it the best. Directed by John Milius, who is known more as a writer than a director, having...

Dreamscape – Review (Scream Factory Blu-ray)

Let me describe a movie and you see if you can guess what it is. A select type of people can use their psychic abilities to enter people’s dreams and help them defeat whatever is causing them nightmares. The myth of whether you die in your sleep is, in fact, real and one crazy psychic dream walker likes to grow knives on his fingers and hunt you down in your dream. If you said A Nightmare on...

Nighthawks – Review (Shout! Factory Blu-ray)

When Stallone wasn’t boxing the entire country of Russia, he was busy fighting terrorists. He was also busy being jealous of Rutger Hauer stealing the limelight in a movie they were filming together. That film was Nighthawks. Released in 1981, Nighthawks seems like a lesser known Stallone film, but for most of the people that watched it, they enjoy it. Shout! Factory see the potential in rel...

Dead End Drive-In – Review (Arrow Video Blu-ray)

Dead End Drive-In is another flick in a long line of random horror/action films from the 80s that I haven’t seen. It seems there is a good amount out there to be enjoyed and Arrow Video is bringing them out on Blu-ray for just that purpose alone. Directed by Brian Trenchard-Smith (Night of the Demons 2) and known as an Ozploitation flick, much in the same line as Mad Max, Dead End Drive-In c...
