HOLLYWOOD CHAINSAW HOOKERS (1988) Blu-ray Review
HOLLYWOOD CHAINSAW HOOKERS (1988) Blu-ray Review The first time I saw Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers was on Joe Bob Brigg's Drive-In Theater, and Michelle Bauer was on as a guest. There was discussion of an early scene, and how much of her ended up on camera. The short version of this review is that this would be a spectacular Blu-ray release, but this key sequence has been compromised, and how important it is to you will decide whether this movie is worth picking up. The movie is about a private detective... [READ MORE]

MAD MAX: FURY ROAD (2015) Movie Review
MAD MAX: FURY ROAD (2015) Movie Review At seventy, you'd be forgiven for thinking that director George Miller's best work is well behind him, but the stuff he delivers in Mad Max Fury Road, the fourth in the venerable Aussie apocalyptic action movie series, is the sort of work that should make modern action directors like your Michael Bays and those shaky-cam devotees hang their heads in shame...

SAVAGED (2014) Blu-ray Review
SAVAGED (2014) Blu-ray Review I've long maintained that there are not enough horror movies based on American Indian folklore. Indians have awesome stories about all sorts of monsters, and yet these rich tapestries of tales go largely unused in cinema. Savaged is a movie that seems like it could've tied in to Indian legends, but mostly it's about a possession... [READ MORE]

MANHUNTER (1986) Blu-ray Review
Take the Leap! 'Infini' Lands on Digital Platforms Tomorrow Confession: I had never seen Manhunter, yet it was on my list of must-sees. Was it worth it? Short answer – Hell yes. Michael Mann’s Manhunter was the first introduction into the world of Hannibal Lecter (or Lecktor as it was in the film). With Red Dragon being made some 16 years later, Manhunter stands up as the better film version.... [READ MORE]

DISCOPATH (2014) Blu-ray Review
DISCOPATH (2014) Blu-ray Review It's the dawn of the disco era in New York, and one man finds himself really struggling with this new style of music. Hearing disco tunes sends him into a trance, and if he finds himself in a Steve Guttenberg type situation where the music can't be stopped, things get ugly. Taking a cue from Silent Night, Deadly Night he puts himself in a situation... [READ MORE]

WHY DON'T YOU PLAY IN HELL? (2013) Blu-ray Review
WHY DON'T YOU PLAY IN HELL? (2013) Blu-ray Review Japanese director Sion Sono has, with Why Don't You Play In Hell?, merged his distinctive cinematic style (sudden and shocking acts of violence, classical music, ultra-weird characters, an extremely off-kilter sense of humour) with his fondness for Japanese and Chinese cinema in this bloody, off-the-wall meta-joke. It's one of the most explicitly entertaining... [READ MORE]

SLAUGHTERHOUSE (1987) 88 Films Blu-ray Review
SLAGHTERHOUSE (1987) Blu-ray Review I don't feel hugely nostalgic about the VHS era, mostly because I was immediately ready to abandon the format as soon as I had an option that didn't require rewinding. One thing I do miss, though, are the lurid video covers I remember from my youth. I would spend entire visits to the video store gazing longingly at titles whose artwork... [READ MORE]

WOLFCOP (2014) Blu-ray Review
WOLFCOP (2014) Blu-ray Review What's in a name? That great bastion of philosophy, The Simpsons, once proposed that a person's name could predestine what sort of person he or she would be. If that's true, then the lead character in WolfCop was inevitably going to be a werewolf one day. Lou Garou is an alcoholic cop barely keeping his life together. He spends his shifts drunk..

EVILSPEAK (1981) Blu-ray Review
EVILSPEAK (1981) Blu-ray Review Evilspeak is a curious blend of nerd wish-fulfilment fantasy and demonic possession movie, giving it the vicarious thrills that a vigilante picture like Death Wish provides, along with the bloodletting of a slasher that just happens to have a daft supernatural vibe. Admittedly uneven, it has moments of absolute genius when it dares to venture into... [READ MORE]
