Rating: Not Rated Stars: J. Michael Trautmann, Dana Melanie, Nick Herra, Clint James, Daniel Fredrick Writers: Alex Child, Miles Harrington & Michael Bartlett Director: Michael Bartlett Distributor: Uncork’d Entertainment Release Date: Blu-ray DVD, March 31, 2015 TREEHOUSE is one of those low-budget horror movies that starts off so slowly that it seems like it’s never going to pick up speed. Unfortunately, unlike some other genre entries that lull us in order to make the jolts that much more impactful, TREEHOUSE continues as it begins. It takes 25 minutes to get into the treehouse, where we wind up feeling more trapped …Read On »

A MOST VIOLENT YEAR: Composer Alex Ebert’s music doesn’t want to kill – Interview

A MOST VIOLENT YEAR soundtrack | ©2014 Community Music

A MOST VIOLENT YEAR (which just arrived on DVD and Blu-ray) might just be one of the most ironically misleading titles yet for a provocatively named film. For nothing in J.C. Chandor’s movie is what it appears to be, from the cargo heists endangering the heating fuel empire dreams of Abel Morales (Oscar Isaac in quietly burning Michael Corleone mode) to the insanely pacifist way in which he chooses to meet the thuggery that gets very close to home. But for all of the gritty photography, family business machinations and razor-sharp salty language that Chandor brings together to create a …Read On »

WICKED WICKED DVD | ©2014 Warner Archive

Stars: David Bailey, Tiffany Bolling, Randy RobertsEdd Byrnes, Scott Brady, Diane McBain, Madeleine Sherwood, Roger Bowen, Arthur O’Connell Writer-Director: Richard L. Bare Distributor: Warner Archive Suggested Retail Price: $18.95 One of the great things about the Warner Bros. Archive Collection is the company digs up some truly obscure films to put out On Demand. Whereas the profit margin for a standard DVD or Blu-ray release would not be worth it, this formula seems to benefit interesting and bat-crap crazy films that would otherwise gather dust on the shelves. WICKED, WICKED is one of the more interesting Warner Archive releases as …Read On »

DVD Review: UNIVERSAL CLASSIC MONSTERS: COMPLETE 30-FILM COLLECTION

UNIVERSAL CLASSIC MONSTERS: COMPLETE 30 FILM COLLECTION | ©2014 Universal Pictures Home Entertainment

Distributor: Universal Home Entertainment Suggested Retail Price: $199.99 As with most home entertainment divisions, re-issuing previously released material in new box sets has become the norm. However, some times it can be a good thing as is the case with the excellent new box set UNIVERSAL CLASSIC MONSTERS: COMPLETE 30-FILM COLLECTION. Corralling every important monster movie from the Universal archives from 1931-1956, this is a must-have even for those who owned the previous 2004 Legacy monster sets and want them all in one place. Those editions from ten years ago, took every important monster (Wolfman, Dracula, Frankenstein, The Creature, The …Read On »

NIGHTBREED: THE DIRECTOR'S CUT | ©2014 Shout! Factory

Stars: Craig Sheffer, Anne Bobby, David Cronenberg, Charles Haid Writer-Director: Clive Barker based on his novel CABAL Suggested Retail Price: $29.93 Distributor: Shout! Factory There are many instances where a director’s work is completely butchered by a studio because they don’t quite understand or care about the intent – they just want to make a quick buck and screw the art. Sergio Leone had his 1984 epic ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA sliced to a nub during its original release, only to be restored to its full epic glory decades later. Clive Barker’s NIGHTBREED from 1990 is the equivalent …Read On »

Stars: Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Chandler Riggs, Danai Gurira, Steven Yeun, Melissa McBride, Scott Wilson Suggested Retail Price: $69.98 Distributor: Anchor Bay Entertainment Even when you have the tendency to rip apart THE WALKING DEAD for its occasionally slow and plodding storytelling, it continues to do things normal TV series never dare tread – be bold and expectation-defying. THE WALKING DEAD, in four seasons, has provided a lush, rich zombie apocalypse – the closest we’ve ever had to a TV series capturing the complexities and nuances of the best of zombie feature films, most notably the cannon of …Read On »

Blu-ray/DVD Review: IN FEAR

IN FEAR poster | ©2014 Anchor Bay

Rating: R Stars: Iain De Caestecker, Alice Englert, Allen Leech Writer: Jeremy Lovering Director: Jeremy Lovering Distributor: Anchor Bay Films Blu-Ray/DVD/VOD Release Date: March 11, 2014 It’s hard to make any kind of a gripping movie with limited sets and very few cast members, but writer/director Jeremy Lovering succeeds with his debut feature, IN FEAR. Genre fans can relate elements of the scenario to a lot of other suspense/horror films, but IN FEAR works as an original, as well as an unexpectedly good character piece. Scotsman Tom (Iain De Caestecker) and English Lucy (Alice Englert) have only been dating for …Read On »
