DVD Review: THE HAUNTING OF ALICE D

THE HAUNTING OF ALICE D | © 2016 RLJ Entertainment

Cast: Kane Hodder, Juan Riedinger, Al Snow, Megan Hensley, Aaron Massey, Kristina Page, Jessica Sonneborn Writer: Jessica Sonneborn Director: Jessica Sonneborn Distributor: RLJ Entertainment If you are expecting one of those exorcism flicks where a poor woman gets possessed by a demon and turns her head and vomits all over her loved ones and floats in the air, this ain’t it. Instead THE HAUNTING OF ALICE D should have been called THE HAUNTING BY ALICE D, because the Alice in question terrorizes a group of friends and their hired help (read hookers) in an old mansion that used to be […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: THE ZERO BOYS

THE ZERO BOYS | © 2016 Arrow Video

Cast: Daniel Hirsch, Kelli Maroney, Nicole Rio, Tom Shell, Jared Moses, Crystal Carson Writers: Robert Gilliam, Nico Mastorakis Director: Nico Mastorakis Distributor: Arrow Video THE ZERO BOYS is so 80s it hurts. Filled with numerous clichés that filled the decade, the film takes them all and packs them into an action thriller. From the big hair, to the horrendous treatment of women as objects, to the loud synthesized music and bad outdated references, it is a time capsule for the decade in a variety of ways. The film focuses on a group of paintball zeroes that worked hard and became […]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 »
