Clint Eastwood is an icon. There's no debate here, his impact on Hollywood as an actor, producer, and director cannot be overstated. His last three films have been about everyday heroes that have managed extraordinary feats of courage and it seems his goal is to counteract the superhero culture prevalent in Hollywood today.  I fo...

Horror film originality was and is a hard thing to come by. The genre is replete with derivative, and often times, unmemorable dreck. Once in a blue moon, we see filmmakers attempt to push the envelope and try something new. The Chiodo brothers managed to do just that in 1988 with the fan favorite, Killer Klowns from Outer Space.In case you have be... Read More

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)...

(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, 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...
