When a plane carrying a secret biological weapon crash-lands in the vicinity of a small, rural town, the area descends into chaos. Infected with a virus that sends them into a homicidal frenzy, the locals turn on each other in an orgy of bloody violence.

Hot on the heels of the game-changing, and now legendary, Night of the Living Dead, George and his production company, The Latent Image, set out to prove to Hollywood and the cinema world, at large, that they were capable of more, and so they released There's Always Vanilla AKA The Affair.Unlike almost all other Romero films, Vanilla is not a h...

Fear The Walking Dead Blu-ray Review
Fear The Walking Dead: The Complete Third Season   Fear The Walking Dead Blu-ray Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  13/03/2018 08:32 EDT
Fear the Walking Dead took some time to walk on steady legs, but season 3 bolted out of the gate with the Military compound being overrun and quickly continues with the unexpected death of Travis Manawa (Cliff Curtis; Live Free or Die Hard) while eventually, Madison (Kim Dickens; Gone Girl) and her kids make it to the (relative)...

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 EDT
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 Blu-ray Review

(Leonard Buccellato)  30/01/2018 11:01 EDT
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...

(Leonard Buccellato)  20/10/2017 14:53 EDT

Buffy The Vampire Slayer - The Movie Blu-ray Review
Buffy The Vampire Slayer - The Movie   Buffy The Vampire Slayer - The Movie Blu-ray Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  16/10/2017 11:33 EDT
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
The House   The House Blu-ray Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  12/10/2017 21:56 EDT
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
