Mind Ripper Review (88 Films Blu-ray)

What started off as a sequel to The Hills Have Eyes, Mind Ripper evolved into a sci-fi horror film featuring a monster who sucks the brains out of hapless scientists in an underground bunker. If that doesn’t sound amazing, how about the fact that Wes Craven is the executive producer and his son, Jonathan Craven wrote and produced the film. Still not convinced? How about the fact the film sta...

The Hills Have Eyes – Review (Arrow Video Blu-ray)

The Hills Have Eyes was Wes Craven’s second directorial film after The Last House on the Left (I’m not counting his stint as Abe Snake directing The Fireworks Woman). Much like The Last House on the Left, The Hills Have Eyes has a gritty, low-budget, violent look, having been shot on 16mm film. Given the budget of approximately $230,000, Wes Craven was able to craft a violent, sometime...

Shocker Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray / Movie Review)

I’m not sure about the hate this movie gets; do people not like having fun when watching flicks? Wes Craven’s Shocker is a perfect example of a fun time. It doesn’t take itself serious, the lead killer, played by X-Files star Mitch Pileggi, is fantastic and looks to be having a blast, and the movie has a scene where the hero and the villain are jumping through different TV channe...

The People Under the Stairs Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray / Movie Review)

It’s been forever since I’ve seen Wes Craven’s 1991 horror remake of Home Alone, titled The People Under the Stairs. I could barely remember anything about the movie, save for a kid that gets trapped inside a house, and a man in a gimp suit, running around and shooting up the walls. Of course, I’m only kidding when I say the movie is a remake of Home Alone, but you got to a...

The Last House on the Left Movie Review

A long, long time ago, long before Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street came around, Wes Craven and Sean S. Cunningham teamed up to create the “horror” flick, The Last House on the Left, a movie about torture, rape and revenge. One would think that two maestros of the slasher could put forth a serious effort, but surprisingly, The Last House on the Left almost seems like a bla...
