Blu-ray Review: Tourist Trap (1979)

SYNOPSIS:
A group of five friends on a weekend outing get more than they bargained for when they stumble upon a shuttered museum of mannequins and its lonely yet amiable former proprietor.

They seemed to have embraced the absurdity of the fact that they have actually been hired to make another one of these and just went for every stupid, cliched, bad CGI moment they could … Continue reading

Trailer For ‘Gone Girl’ Raises All Kinds Of Questions.

The new one heading our way from David Fincher is titled ‘Gone Girl’ and it stars the polarizing Ben Affleck. Personally, I like the dude, I like his acting and most of his films but for some reason – he rubs a lot of folks the wrong way. Right or wrong it’s just how it is and you know what would shut up the naysayers quicker than anything else? A kick ass movie that’s what. … Continue reading

On Sept. 9th Synapse Films will release the later of those three – ‘Prom Night’.
