Shivers Blu-ray Review

(Leonard Buccellato)  24/09/2020 20:54 EDT
David Cronenberg, without hyperbole, is one of the greatest genre movie directors. Body-Horror, a term used to describe a sub-genre which showcases violations of the human body, is a genre some would say he single-handedly created, albeit admittedly the tropes existed before Shivers and Rabid melted the silver screen. However, no one director/scree... Read More

Warner Brothers home video presents the perfect reason to stay home and binge.This is what horror and suspenseful programming are about.From Stephen King and J.J, Abrams (Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker), we are treated to an excellent follow-up, and in almost every aspect, a superior season.Something bad is, indeed, coming to town, and not a sing...

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...

Game of Thrones: The Complete Eighth Season   Game of Thrones 4K Ultra HD Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  04/12/2019 11:20 EDT
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...

Robocop Blu-ray Review

(Leonard Buccellato)  18/11/2019 17:07 EDT
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...

An American Werewolf in London Blu-ray Review

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...

Midsommar Blu-ray Review
Midsommar   Midsommar Blu-ray Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  08/10/2019 09:08 EDT
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...
