Cannibal Apocalypse – Review (Umbrella Entertainment DVD)

Released only five years after the end of the Vietnam War, Cannibal Apocolypse strives to give the viewers a mix of two stories. Director Antonio Margheriti wants to provide a look at the woes of fitting back into society, but he mixes his ideas with cannibalistic horror. It surprisingly works for the most part, much in thanks to leading man John Saxon playing the role as straight as possible, giv...

Hell Night – Review (Scream Factory Blu-ray)

Hell Night has been yet another one of those horror movies that I’ve meant to watch for a very long time. I would see the poster, the one with Linda Blair’s boobies hanging out of her dress, while she is screaming to get out. It was a memorable poster for sure, but for some odd reason, I never had the opportunity to watch it. Of course, that has changed now, since Scream Factory has pr...

The Devil’s Honey – Review (Severin Films Blu-ray)

After tearing open The Devil’s Honey and thrusting it gently into my Blu-ray player, I teased the play button for a bit and finally, after a few excruciating seconds, I jammed my finger on the button and subjected myself to the oddball pleasures of Lucio Fulci’s attempt at a sexual thriller. Was the experience pleasurable or was I left unsatisfied? Well, to answer that, I say the crotc...

The Entity – Review (Umbrella Entertainment Blu-ray)

If you don’t already know, I also write for the website www.cultsploitation.com, and my friend Ryne (The Moon is a Dead World) also reviews releases there. It turns out that Ryne was quicker at watching The Entity than I was, so he was first at writing a review for the Umbrella Entertainment release and to be perfectly honest, his critique reflects almost exactly how I feel about the movie. ...

Land of the Dead – Review (Scream Factory Blu-ray)

I love all of George Romero’s work in some manner, even if the movie turns out to not be the best he has produced. Land of the Dead is one of those movies, where I can enjoy it, but I know it’s just not that great. It’s hard to pinpoint precisely where Land of the Dead misses the mark. Are the intelligent zombies the problem? They indeed aren’t popular with a lot of people,...

The Poughkeepsie Tapes – Review (Scream Factory Blu-ray)

It’s been going on ten long years since The Poughkeepsie Tapes was supposed to come out. To put it in perspective, Rob Zombie was about to ruin Halloween, Fangoria still had magazines, and social media wasn’t the toxic wasteland of shitty people it is nowadays. As the years passed, the only way to watch The Poughkeepsie Tapes was through bootleg copies found online. You had to be a dir...

Don’t Torture a Duckling – Review (Arrow Video Blu-ray)

Lucio Fulci has a varied career of cinematic weirdness, which ranges from gory zombie flicks, psycho slashers and quirky Giallos. This time around my review is going to about a quirky Giallo named Don’t Torture a Duckling. If you’re wondering what this little Duckling is about, it’s a convoluted, red herring filled murder mystery where it will leave you rightfully confused all th...

The Stendhal Syndrome – Review (Blue Underground LE Blu-ray)

Stendhal syndrome, Stendhal’s syndrome, hyperkulturemia, or Florence syndrome is a psychosomatic disorder that causes rapid heartbeat, dizziness, fainting, confusion and even hallucinations when an individual is exposed to an experience of great personal significance, particularly viewing art. Source: Wikipedia Dario Argento has a long line of stellar films under his belt, and even the ones ...

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 Fox with a Velvet Tail – Cultsploitation Review (Mondo Macabro Blu-ray)

The Fox with a Velvet Tail may be light on the violence, but the mystery, eroticism and intrigue make things interesting. A solid Blu-ray from Mondo Macabro.
