SYNOPSIS:

A Modern Giallo Horror Film, YELLOW tells the story of a lonely young woman who begins an unlikely relationship with dire consequences.

Film Review: The Sacrament (2013)

The-Sacrament-bluray

SYNOPSIS:

Acclaimed genre director Ti West and master of horror Eli Roth join forces to deliver a frightening new cinematic experience.

REVIEW:

Every generation has its masters of horror. Ti West is certainly making a name for himself in the current generation as one of the masters. The House of the Devil brought him to the forefront. The slow burn style that built itself into an insane climactic battle provided some of the best … Continue reading

Don't-go-into-the-woods-4

SYNOPSIS:

A feral man who lives out in the wilderness kills anyone stupid enough to enter his woods.

REVIEW:

I am a connoisseur of 1980’s slasher films and take pride in the fact that I have almost seen every single one of them. However, from time to time some of them manage to slip through the cracks and I don’t see them until years (and sometimes even decades) after they are … Continue reading

Film Review: The Swarm (1978)

The-Swarm-Irwin-Allen-1978-movie-2

SYNOPSIS:

A huge swarm of deadly African bees spreads terror over American cities by killing thousands of people.

REVIEW:

Throughout the 1970s, disaster movies were all the rage. The increase in popularity was thanks in large part to Irwin Allen, the man behind movies such as The Towering Inferno and The Poseidon Adventure. He would hire a multitude of established personalities and place them into situations leading to the screen deaths of many of … Continue reading

Film Review: Ginger Snaps (2000)

ginger-snaps-blu_o

SYNOPSIS:

One of the Fitzgerald sisters, suburban goth girl outcasts, gets bitten by something in the woods (and it ain’t a neighborhood dog).

REVIEW:

What do lycanthropy & menstruation have in common? An odd question for sure but as presented in the film “Ginger Snaps”, the answer is pretty damn scary. It’s been a dog’s age (Pun unintended) since I’ve seen this flick and I forgot how great it is. The plot tells the … Continue reading

Blu-ray Review: Curtains

Have you ever wanted sometime sooo badly you would do anything for it?  Well for me, I have wanted Curtains (1983) on DVD and Blu-ray for years. I own a 35mm print of this film, and I’ve seen it projected three times since 1998. The image looks very similar to the VHS Vestron Video release which I first rented in July 1986 which is to say that it is dark, murky and sometimes difficult … Continue reading
