EMELIE | © 2016 Dark Sky Films

Cast: Sarah Bolger, Carly Adams, Carl Bailey, Thomas Bair, Elizabeth Jayne, Chris Beetem Writer: Rich Herbeck Director: Michael Thelin Distributor: Dark Sky Films There is something definitely wrong with Anna. As a baby sitter goes, she leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to the wellbeing of the children she’s watching. And that’s what is at the heart of EMELIE. When Anna is brought to watch three children so the parents can go on a date night, the kids immediately take to her. She lets them run all over the house with abandon, she lets them do the […]Read On »

VoD Review: THE HORDE

THE HORDE | © 2016 Gravitas Ventures

  Cast: Paul Logan, Matthew Willig, Bill Moseley, Costas Mandylor, Vernon Wells, Nestor Serrano Writer: Paul Logan Director: Jared Cohn Distributor: Gravitas Ventures If the genre of torture porn has gone away in the realm of horror, someone forgot to tell the makers of THE HORDE. This isn’t a knock against the genre or the film itself. I enjoy a good torture porn horror flick as much as the next guy. If you are unfamiliar with the term, it loosely describes a horror film that features a good number of scenes of people getting brutally tortured with use of objects […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: NORM OF THE NORTH

NORM OF THE NORTH | © 2016 Lionsgate Home Entertainment

  Outside of Disney, animated films are either hit or miss when it comes delivering something you as a parent can feel good about letting your children watch. While NORM OF THE NORTH isn’t necessarily a bad movie for kids. The number of pee and fart jokes that are contained within leave a lot to be desired when it comes to letting kids watch what you hope will be a decent animated flick. The story centers on Norm, a polar bear, who learns that humans are moving into his home in the vastness of the Arctic. He doesn’t really think […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: THE STUFF

THE STUFF | © 2016 Arrow Video

THE STUFF is one of those classic 80s flicks that has a lot going for it. First of all it is a mixture of both THE BLOB and zombie flicks but also a crack in the ribs at consumerism that was one of the general themes of many horror flicks back during the era. The plot is pretty interesting as well and not something we have seen used often as a trope among horror flicks. A weird goo oozes out of the ground in a remote location, so what’s the logical thing to do? Taste it, of course. Amazingly it […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: THE REVENANT

THE REVENANT | © 2016 Fox Home Entertainment

  THE REVENANT is a pretty amazing film from a variety of perspectives. Not only does it capture the beauty of the American Pacific Northwest during winter in the 1820s where pelters are encroaching on Native American territory, but it also captures the harsh and brutality of the wilderness and the danger involved in such endeavors. From the opening sequence that sees the Americans being attacked by a horde of Native Americans in one continuous brutal scene to the escape but not out of hot water yet as the Indians travel to kill the remaining men. Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio), […]Read On »

DVD Review: THE HOARDER

THE HOARDER | © 2016 Lionsgate Home Entertainment

  Don’t worry, THE HOARDER isn’t a branch off one of those television shows where it shows people with real problems gathering a ton of needless junk and unable to get rid of everything until their houses are sometimes filled to the brim with crap. Instead the hoarding in question here has to do with people. Gathering people as pets and keeping them isolated in the basement of a fairly sophisticated public storage enterprise. Mischa Barton (from THE OC) and Robert Knepper (long a fan favorite as the vile T-Bag on PRISON BREAK) star in this horror flick about a […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: STAR WARS THE FORCE AWAKENS

STAR WARS THE FORCE AWAKENS | © 2016 Disney Home Video

Not a lot more can be said about STAR WARS THE FORCE AWAKENS … it is a throwback to the original film (some would say just a remake of A NEW HOPE) but with fresh faces, some interesting ideas about what happened after RETURN OF THE JEDI. I am a big fan of THE FORCE AWAKENS. Sure it borrows heavily from the original but after what we, as fans, went through with the prequels, this is what we needed. What everyone needed to get on board with the franchise again. And it delivers in spades with plenty of questions yet […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: DEATH WALKS TWICE

DEATH WALKS TWICE | © 2016 Arrow Video

Arrow Video has putting out some really good titles over the past couple of years digging dip into the bowels of moviedom and coming out with rare gems that have been converted into high definition. Unfortunately, DEATH WALKS TWICE isn’t one of these gems but isn’t half bad either. The double disc set includes two films from director Luciano Ercoli—DEATH WALKS AT MIDNIGHT and DEATH WALKS ON HIGH HEELS—both starring Italian actress Nieves Navarro (billed under the name Susan Scott). In the first film, DEATH WALKS ON HIGH HEELS, Navarro plays a cabaret dancer that is being hunted by someone […]Read On »
