SYNOPSIS:

A family of nobles in Carrozza travel in a forest in which, in the same moment, a satanic cult completes human sacrifices made up of young girls.

The_Legend_of_Billie_Jean_1985-movie-Helen-Slater-Christian-slater-4

SYNOPSIS:

A Texas teenager cuts her hair short and becomes an outlaw martyr with her brother and friends.

REVIEW:

One of the true 1985 essential films of that year, “The Legend of Billie Jean” is a movie that has taken quite some time to arrive for viewers (let alone bluray). The DVD itself wasn’t released until year 2011 with its bluray finally shelving in 2014.

I tend to place this film … Continue reading

Film Review: Without Warning (1980)

Without-Warning-bluray-cover-shout-factory

SYNOPSIS:

An alien creature stalks human prey.

REVIEW:

“Without Warning“, another lost underrated film from the 80’s. This B-grade film has alot of heart and soul despite being lost for the last 2 decades. Surprisingly enough using cheesy props and “fishing line attack-beasties”, the film does a pretty good job at keeping suspense high through-out its duration. This element of suspense serves it well even when we know where its leading up to

SYNOPSIS:

A historic Hollywood hotel houses a supernatural evil. It’s been subdued for decades – but when renovations start, a series of murders take place. It’s up to our heroine to solve the mystery.

The 2004 version of Toolbox Murders is a very loose remake of Dennis Donnelly’s 1978 film of the same name (strangely enough, it was Donnelly’s only movie, as he was mostly a television director, having worked on … Continue reading
