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 »

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 »

After the first episode of FEAR THE WALKING DEAD debuted to a cable record ratings, it is probably safe to say AMC has another hit on its hands despite some viewers’ opinions that it was too slow or there was not enough zombie carnage. While the first season is only six episodes (the same as the original series’ first season), there is still much that can happen to capture an audience. The cast and crew of FEAR THE WALKING DEAD believes so too and they gave AssignmentX five things to expect to see on the show during Season 1. 1) […]Read On »

Movie/VoD Review: HARBINGER DOWN

HARBINGER DOWN | © 2015 Vertical Entertainment

Cast: Lance Henriksen, Camille Balsamo, Matt Winston, Giovonnie Samuels, Winston James Francis, Mick Ignis, Michael Estime Writer: Alec Gillis Director: Alec Gillis Distributor: Vertical Entertainment Release Date: August 7, 2015 HARBINGER DOWN is a pretty blatant rip-off of the John Carpenter classic THE THING. However, the people who made the film – on the back of a successful Kickstarter campaign combined with funds from their own pockets – make clear that’s what they were going for in a homage to not just THE THING but also other science fiction monster movies from the 80s including LEVIATHAN and even a bit […]Read On »

Rating: NR Cast: Ciara Hanna, Emily O’Brien, Jackie Moore, Russell Geoffrey Banks, Bryon Gibson Writer: James Cullen Bressack Director: James Cullen Bressack Distributor: Benetone Films Release Date: June 19. 2015 You are no doubt aware of the little blue kids that have graced that good and bad from the likes of THE GRUDGE/JU-ON movies. Maybe you have had an ass-load of them as the result of numerous parodies of blue kids in the SCARY MOVIE franchise. Maybe you are fed up with this horror trope of little blue kids being the main antagonist in horror movies. But are you ready […]Read On »

VOD Review: HOOKED UP

HOOKED UP | © 2015 Uncork'd Entertainment

Rating: Not Rated Cast: Jonah Ehrenreich, Stephen Ohl, Julia Molins, Natascha Wiese Writer: Pablo Larcuen, Eduard Sola Director: Pablo Larcuen Distributor: Uncork’d Entertainment Release Date: April 7, 2015 HOOKED UP proudly embraces the fact that the entire movie was shot using an iPhone. While this probably is bragging rights in some circles, I’m not sure if you should be proud of the achievement. Do many people rent video-on-demand features with the intention of seeing craptacular video quality? And while found footage and retro-set films have used filters and special effects to introduce bad looking video quality, I’m pretty sure the […]Read On »

Movie/VoD Review: AVENGED

AVENGED | © 2015 Uncork'd Entertainment

Cast: Amanda Adrienne, Tom Ardavany, Ronnie Gene Blevins, Brionne Davis, Ed Fletcher, Jason Gurvitz Writer: Michael S. Ojeda Director: Michael S. Ojeda Distributor: Uncork’d Entertainment Rating: Not Rated AVENGED is like a supernatural I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE, if that film has a deaf woman that actually dies and begins to rot on her way to killing the men that did her wrong. Oh and if they added a contrived romance plotline that never really takes off during the course of the movie. Zoe (Amanda Adrienne), a deaf girl with a boyfriend that lives far away, decides to go visit […]Read On »

STARRY EYES star Alex Essoe sells her soul to Hollywood – Exclusive Interview

Alex Essoe in STARRY EYES | ©2014 MPI Media Group

If you thought being a ballerina in the cutthroat world of dance was enough to drive a young woman mad, just try making it as an actress in the psychopathic town of Hollywood. It’s a place that’s hell itself for the uncountable hopefuls it’s chewed up and out, no more so than for those who’ve debased themselves to climb its ladder. But when that leg up is given by the devil’s minions, selling one’s soul to Hollywood takes on a whole new horrific meaning for one particular hopeful named Sarah, who endures a terrifying series of auditions, and then far […]Read On »

TV Review: DOCTOR WHO – Series 8 – “Time Heist”

Peter Capaldi as The Doctor in DOCTOR WHO - Series 8 | ©2014 BBC/BBC Worldwide/Adrian Rogers

Stars: Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman Writer: Steven Moffat & Steve Thompson Director: Douglas Mckinnon    Original Telecast: September 20, 2014 Network: BBC America I’ll admit that I was surprised to see the negative press rolling out of the UK about this latest episode of DOCTOR WHO, before it aired over here. “Time Heist” isn’t the strongest episode of this new series, but it was enjoyable and I’m really not sure where all of the anger is coming from. Basically the setup involves The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Clara (Jenna Coleman) trying to break into the most heavily secured bank in the known […]Read On »
