Stars: Lori Cardille, Terry Alexander, Joe Plasco, Richard Liberty Writer: George A. Romero Director: George A. Romero Distributor: Scream Factory Suggested Retail Price: $29.93 While none of George A. Romero’s zombie films were respected in the respective years of their release (1968 for NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, 1978 for DAWN OF THE DEAD and 1985 for DAY OF THE DEAD), they have since become the cornerstones of classic zombie cinema. We wouldn’t have the zombie onslaught today without Romero’s thoughtful and terrifying visions of hell literally visiting earth and there would be no THE WALKING DEAD (the comic or …Read On »

Rating: Unrated Stars: Paul Bettany, Mark Strong, Stephen Graham, Brian Cox Writer: Bill Gallagher Director: Nick Murphy Distributor: RLJ Entertainment Release Date: home video/digital download, September 10, 2013 A British crime drama – hell, any kind of production whatever – starring Paul Bettany, Mark Strong, Brian Cox and Stephen Graham is going to be worth seeing. As it happens, BLOOD has merits above and beyond its cast, with director Nick Murphy and writer Bill Gallagher maintaining a near-claustrophobic tension as Bettany’s English police detective Joe Fairburn grapples with guilt, fear and rage. Joe works in a precinct with his brother …Read On »

Blu-ray Review: FRIDAY THE 13th: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION

FRIDAY THE 13th - THE COMPLETE COLLECTION | ©2013 Warner Bros. / Paramount Pictures

Original Release Date: September 13, 2013 Distributor: Warner Bros./Paramount Pictures Suggested Retail Price: $129.95 The FRIDAY THE 13th films may be wildly loved by horror fans (and those with nostalgia filled eyes for the good old days of slasher movies), the treatment on DVD and Blu-ray has been a splotchy one at best. Every time Paramount has attempted to do a box set or repackage the films, it always feels like something is lacking. It’s a damned if you do, damned if you don’t thing. The problem being, the first eight movies in the franchise were low budget efforts and …Read On »
