THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 40th Anniversary Collector's Edition Blu-ray | ©2014 Dark Sky Films

Stars: Marilyn Burns, Edwin Neal, Gunnar Hansen Writer: Kim Henkel & Tobe Hooper Director: Tobe Hooper Suggested Retail Price: $49.98 Distributor: Dark Sky Films Time has been very good to 1974’s THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE. Not only has there been multiple, inferior sequels and remakes that have tried to supplant it with lesser results, but a whole new subgenre of horror movies was jump started due to this Tobe Hooper classic. That subgenre of course is the “kids in a van” movie. So many movies have used this template to the point of nauseum – kids take a detour …Read On »

Blu-ray Review: PROM NIGHT (Special Edition)

PROM NIGHT Special Edition Blu-ray | ©2014 Synapse Films

Stars: Leslie Nielsen, Jamie Lee Curtis, Casey Stevens Writer: William Gray from a story by Robert Guza Jr. Director: Paul Lynch Distributor: Synapse Films Suggested Retail Price: $24.95 The 1980 slasher film PROM NIGHT is not a perfect movie by any means. In fact, many late 1970s and early 1980s horror films so dearly missed the mark, they’re better off not being remembered. PROM NIGHT stands somewhere in the middle. One of many slasher knock-offs to feature HALLOWEEN star Jamie Lee Curtis, the other was 1980′s TERROR TRAIN and strangely both contain many of the same problems – and strangely …Read On »

Matt Ryan stars as John Constantine in CONSTANTINE | © 2014 Quantrell Colbert/NBC

Cast: Matt Ryan, Angelica Celaya, Charles Halford, Harold Perrineau, Michael James Shaw, Emmett J Scanlan Writer: David S. Goyer, Daniel Cerone Director: Neil Marshall Network: Airs on NBC, Fridays @ 10p.m. Original Telecast: Oct. 24, 2014 So CONSTANTINE’s premiere episode isn’t entitled “Pilot” for the reason that the Pilot episode is something completely different than what was delivered in “Non Est Asylum.” Hopefully, for the better. CONSTANTINE is based on the comic book HELLBLAZER (that also spawned a movie of the same name starring Keanu Reeves) about John Constantine, a damned demon hunter and master of the occult that fights …Read On »

In ABC’s MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD, now in its second season Tuesday nights at 9, a lot has changed since the series began its first year. The show, adapted by Joss Whedon & Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen from the Marvel comics, is intimately tied in with the Marvel film universe, so when Hydra agents emerged to wreak havoc with S.H.I.E.L.D. from within during the big screen’s CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, all hell immediately also broke loose on AGENTS. In the aftermath, it turned out that team member Grant Ward (Brett Dalton) was a Hydra mole. Team chief Phil …Read On »

Kyle MacLachlan in Marvel's AGENTS OF SHIELD | ©2014 ABC/Kelsey McNeal

Cast: Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Elizabeth Henstridge, Nick Blood, BJ Britt, Iaini De Caestecker, Brett Dalton, Henry Simmons, Adrianne Palicki Writer: Brent Fletcher Director: Holly Dale Network: Airs on ABC, Tuesdays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: Oct. 21, 2014 Adrianne by-God Palicki. If this show needed a strong female character that isn’t wrapped up in daddy issues or constantly pining for her boss to get back to being the old guy she used to know it is MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD. Palicki, for those uninitiated, is hot-as-balls. She was originally found in the great NBC series FRIDAY NIGHT …Read On »

TV Review: DANCING WITH THE STARS – Season 19 – Week 7 – Antonio Sabato Jr. gone

Stars: Tommy Chong, Bethany Mota, Janel Parrish, Alfonso Ribeiro, Sadie Robertson, Antonio Sabato Jr., Lea Thompson, Michael Waltrip Network: ABC, airs Mondays Original Telecast: Oct. 27th, 2014 WOW! It was another shocking night on DANCING WITH THE STARS, and not just because it was a Spooktacular Halloween episode. No, week seven brought on the horror in its theme and the terror in its steps, but nothing, and I mean nothing was as spellbinding as the elimination of hunky Antonio Sabato Jr. & Cheryl Burke. Now, granted, he is not the most elegant of dancers, Alfonso Ribeiro has long been the …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 »

Blu-ray Review: GHOSTBUSTERS / GHOSTBUSTERS II Anniversary Editions

GHOSTBUSTERS Blu-ray | ©2014 Sony Pictures Home Entertainment

Stars: Bill Murray, Dan Akyroyd, Sigourney Weaver, Harold Ramis, Rick Moranis, Ernie Hudson, Annie Potts Writers: Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis Director: Ivan Reitman Distributor: Sony Pictures Home Entertainment Suggested Retail Price: $19.99 (apiece) GHOSTBUSTERS is perhaps the greatest horror comedy ever. A great story, fantastic special effects, stellar imagination, sharp direction and a cast at the top of their comedic game, this 1984 classic stands tall. No one has ever been able to top it (not even the 1989 sequel) and no one likely will. Now both films have been remastered in 4K and reissued on Blu-ray to honor …Read On »

Movie Review: OUIJA

OUIJA movie poster | ©2014 Universal Pictures

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Olivia Cooke, Ana Coto, Daren Kagasoff, Bianca Santos, Douglas Smith, Shelley Hennig, Lin Shaye Writers: Juliet Snowden & Stiles White Director: Stiles White Distributor: Universal Release Date: October 24, 2014 Maybe this isn’t what happened at all. However, OUIJA looks like the result of producers and/or the studio deciding that they wanted to bring out a PG-13 horror movie right around Halloween. Upon realizing/recalling that a lot of genre fans eye PG-13 horror warily – afraid that such films will have the flaws that afflict OUIJA – the production team opted to bypass the adult and even …Read On »
