Day of the Dead: Bloodlines is the second remake of the bleak, George A. Romero film, released in 1985. This version of Day, Directed by Hèctor Hernández Vicens with the screenplay by Mark Tonderai and Lars Jacobson, brings us on the verge of humanity's destruction. Medical student Zoe Parker (S...

Gothic Blu-ray Review
Gothic   Gothic Blu-ray Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  30/01/2018 11:20 EST
Ken Russell (Altered States, The Devils) is possibly the most difficult Director to digest. He is, at once, profound and profane, simple and complex, acrimonious and pleasant. Ken Russell was many things, but boring was not one of them.  Gothic, starring Gabriel Byrne, Julian Sands, Natasha Richardson - in her first movie role, as well as Myri... Read More

Class of 1999, from Mark L. Lester, the writer/director that brought us, Class of 1984, returns with the next installment of kids gone wild and this time the teachers are getting in on the action.  1999 is a heady mixture of  Mad Max meets  Terminator, meets  A Clockwork Orange. This is the quintessential Dri...

American Horror Story: Roanoke   American Horror Story Blu-ray Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  20/10/2017 14:53 EST
In case you're uncertain, American Horror Story is an anthology series centering on different characters and locations, including a house with a murderous past, an insane asylum, a witch, a freak show, a hotel, a possessed farmhouse and a cult. In season 6, AHS: Roanoke, we are taken on a wild, nightmarish ride through ...

When Buffy The Vampire Slayer was first released in 1992 it was mildly entertaining, grossing $16.5 million from a modest $7 million budget. Looking back on this film it should have been a smash success, considering the talent attached to it. The cast included Donald Sutherland, and Rutger Hauer, themselves Golden Globe recipients. Hell, even ... Read More

The House Blu-ray Review

Seeing Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler's names attached to this, I thought the movie was going to be really funny. Seeing the trailer helped to cement this thought but after watching it, it proved not quite up to the task.  The House Blu-ray from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment was released on Oct. 10th. Director Andrew Jay Cohen's comed... Read More

OUTLANDER! Get ready, Arrow Video has released a 2K restoration of the 1984 classic, and I guarantee you will need plenty of Popcorn.Even in 1984, Stephen King's name had carte blanche with horror fans, by 1984 Carrie, The Shining, Cujo, The Dead Zone and Christine had been released, theatrically and despite ...

Of all the horror movies released in 1989 (Nightmare on Elm Street 5, Halloween 5, Friday the 13th Part 8), 976-EVIL was probably the most disappointing. The pedigree of the longtime horror icon, Robert Englund, could not be disputed; he played Freddy Kruger after all and as of 1989 he did it five times. He starred in the Tobe Hooper... Read More

Phantasm DVD Review
Phantasm 5 Movie Collection   Phantasm DVD Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  12/09/2017 14:44 EST
Phantasm has been with us for close to 40 years and ever since the Tall Man unleashed his diminutive minions on an unsuspecting horror-loving community we, its faithful followers, have not gotten enough of its quirky, iconic characters. Now all 5 of the terrifying, if perplexing, films are collected in one place and are set to drop on 9/19/17, and ... Read More

The Walking Dead Blu-ray Review
The Walking Dead: The Complete Seventh Season   The Walking Dead Blu-ray Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  28/08/2017 10:08 EST
George A. Romero was not only the creator of the Zombie Horror genre, he was the inspiration for Kirkman's The Walking Dead series. To ignore George's impact on the horror genre at large, as well as the Zombie sub-genre, is doing him a great disservice. He may not have been a fan of this series and he even said The Walking Dead was "a soap ope... Read More
