The-Battery-bluray

SYNOPSIS:

The personalities of two former baseball players clash as they traverse the rural back roads of a post-plague New England teeming with the undead.

REVIEW:

Glancing at past reviews, I fear I’ve grown a tad jaded towards zombie movies. Like Glenn Beck offering his personal opinions on an episode of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” I may no longer lay claim to the one tentative thread of objectivity I had to begin with. In … Continue reading

REVIEW:

I had seen Special Effects when I was a kid and didn’t really like it because it didn’t involve someone in a mask running around chopping people to pieces. It didn’t make a whole lot of sense to me back then and I thought that it was pretty boring. I … Continue reading

The-Bunnyman-Massacre-Artwork

SYNOPSIS:
Joe’s violent brother, armed with a chainsaw and an over-sized, bloody bunny suit, goes on another rampage gathering fresh supplies for his special brand of beef jerky.

REVIEW:
The Bunnyman Massacre wants to be The Texas Chainsaw Massacre in a big, hungry way. In many ways, it succeeds; in many more ways, it fails miserably. There is an audience for this type of masochistic nonsense void of story and lacking … Continue reading

Weaving together two of Miller’s classic stories with new tales, the town’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more notorious inhabitants.
