Lucio Fulci is a legend of Horror Cinema. It remains his defining work in a career spanning decades as well as vastly different genres, from comedies and westerns to sci-fi and fantasy. However, Fulci will forever remain the master of terror.The Maestro himself was often characterized as mercurial, capricious, even, it is said, prone to moment...

For a show that has won 260 awards, 59 of which were Emmys, and countless accolades and praise, it has received more than its fair share of slings and arrows, too. Most of which came during this last season.Game of Thrones was the darling of its fan base, not to mention most of the critics, as well. That is, until the rushed and much-maligned Seaso...

In 1987 I was not ready for RoboCop. By then I had already experienced more than my share of Horror, Sci-Fi and Action films. Sitting in that darkened theater with my friends, watching the hyper-violent, and frenetically paced movie, I was struck by how it had so much more to say than just 'look at how bloody I am!'  RoboCop was making...

PG-13 horror movies, always conjure up images of milquetoast monsters, bloodless kill- scenes, and plots which cater to an, at best, immature audience. I know this seems like a seriously gross generalization, and perhaps it is a tad judgmental, but I have been to too many of them to think otherwise. Or have I! This is not the case with Scary S...

John Landis (Coming to America, Michael Jackson's Thriller) has created many, what most people would term, "classic" films. Many of them, like Trading Places, or The Blues Brothers, to name a few, were comedies but one, in particular, has stuck with Horror film lovers and for good reason. An American Werewolf in London is high on the...

(Leonard Buccellato)  08/10/2019 09:08 EST
Ari Aster is an Auteur on a mission: to make us question, and sometimes fear our relationships, family, and friends. And especially in Midsommar's case, strange cults.His previous film, Hereditary, was a masterclass in suspenseful storytelling, unraveling the plot, as the sanity of each character unravels along with it. In Midsommar, we are tr...

The Walking Dead Blu-ray Review
The Walking Dead: The Complete Ninth Season   The Walking Dead Blu-ray Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  20/08/2019 10:18 EST
​On October 31st, 2010, The Walking Dead premiered on AMC and the world of horror on TV was permanently changed. Say what you want about the trajectory of this show, there is no denying the impact it has had on mainstream television.I became a fan of zombie-horror movies when I was a kid, and my mom, who is a horror fan herself, recited to me, the ...

There are two types of people, those that love the Vince Gilligan/Peter Gould, Breaking Bad Spinoff Series, Better Call Saul, and those that are wrong! Especially if you are a fan of Breaking Bad, you owe it to yourself to watch this well thought out and incredibly well-acted series.Gilligan/Gould have created an amazingly watchable world, populate...
