Island Zero – Movie Review

When I received the press release for the film Island Zero, which is about a remote island off the coast of Maine, who residents become stuck on the island after the local ferry doesn’t show up, I immediately thought this was something Stephen King would have written. No, this isn’t some long-lost story from King, but the film does have the vibe of the Master of the Macabre running thr...

The Dark Tower – Movie Review

Let me preface this review of The Dark Tower with a little bit of background information on my knowledge of the series and my fandom towards it. I only started reading The Dark Tower books last summer. I did, however, devour them back to back until I was finished. Nevertheless, I didn’t have to wait years like some people for each new book to come out, and my waiting for the movie was even shorter...

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...

The Lawnmower Man – Review (Scream Factory Blu-ray)

After spending 2 hours and 20 minutes with the director’s cut of The Lawnmower Man, I find myself struggling to write anything. I’ve already spent enough time with this movie; the exhaustion has kicked in. Don’t get me wrong; I’m not saying The Lawnmower Man is a terrible film, as there are far worse flicks out there. The problem with the film, though, is that is way too long, which is more ...

Gwendy’s Button Box – Book Review (Stephen King and Richard Chizmar)

I was a bit late to the Stephen King fan club. I owned most of his books, but I never found the time to read any, that was until last summer. I cracked open The Bazaar of Bad Dreams, and since then, my love of King has quadrupled. I immediately dived into The Dark Tower series, devouring all the books in a few months. From there, I went into IT, Eyes of the Dragon, Salem’s Lot, Misery and so...

Creepshow 2 – Review (Arrow Video Blu-ray)

Anyone that reads my site knows I love anthology films (I feel like I’ve opened with that line before) and Creepshow 2 is one anthology I’ve always loved. Yes, it may not be as great as the first one, the film still holds a special place in my heart, as evident by the review I did for it already on here. Because I’ve already reviewed the movie before, I’ll include a few quotes to give ...

Carrie – Review (Scream Factory Blu-ray)

It has been a very long time since I’ve actually seen the film Carrie, directed by Brian De Palma in 1976. In fact, I’m not entirely sure I’ve ever seen a non-edited version of Carrie. I do not remember seeing the opening of Carrie with so many boobies and merkins in the locker room scene and let me tell you, it is a very nice thing to see Nancy Allen nude. To celebrate the 40th ...

Carrie (2002 TV Movie) (Blu-ray / Movie Review)

*NOTE* This Blu-ray disc comes in a two pack with the sequel to The Rage: Carrie 2, released by Scream Factory* After putting in the second half of the Carrie Double Feature from Scream Factory, I can safely say that this TV version of Carrie was a big waste of time. I really don’t understand the need for it and well, I guess the same could be said for the newer remake as well, but that̵...
