PUMPKINHEAD - Collector's Edition | ©2014 Shout! Factory

Stars: Lance Henriksen, Jeff East, John D’Aquino, Kerry Remsen, Kimberly Ross Writer: Mark Patrick Carucci with Gary Gerani, based on a story by Carducci, Stan Winston and Richard Weinman and based on the poem by Ed Justin Director: Stan Winston Suggested Retail Price: $29.93 Distributor: Shout! Factory PUMPKINHEAD has always been one of those odd horror films that defies categorization. It’s an original concept, has a great lead creature, a unique premise yet, when all is said and done, never truly achieves the greatness its premise promises. After watching the Collector’s Edition of the 1988 film from Shout! Factory, I …Read On »

Rating: R Stars: Catalina Sandino Moreno, Naya Rivera, Ashley Rickard, Michael Massee, Tara Buck Writer: Nicholas McCarthy Director: Nicholas McCarthy Distributor: IFC Midnight Release Date: September 12, 2014 (theatrical), September 8, 2014 (VOD) Nicholas McCarthy, writer/director of AT THE DEVIL’S DOOR, clearly knows his scares. Whether it’s the slam of a drawer or the appearance of a shape in the mirror, he demonstrates a gift for doing whatever it is at just the right moment for just the right duration to make even pretty horror-hardened viewers jump. The result is a movie that generates intense dread, even though its plot …Read On »

Stars: Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman, Tom Riley, Ben Miller Writer: Mark Gatiss Director: Paul Murphy   Original Telecast: September 6, 2014 Network: BBC America “Robot of Sherwood” is the third adventure in this new season/ series of DOCTOR WHO, and now we’re really picking up steam as far as seeing who this new Doctor (Peter Capaldi) is. We’ve had bits and pieces of his personality and his idiosyncratic routines in the past couple of episodes, but this one really feels like we’re getting a solid look at The Doctor as he is now. The basic premise of this episode is …Read On »

Tyler Posey in TEEN WOLF - Season 4 - "Perishable" | ©2014 MTV

As TEEN WOLF wraps up Season 4 on MTV Monday night with an extended season finale, the series once again builds toward multiple story strands, potential deaths for beloved characters (or maybe not) and the continual evolution of Scott [Tyler Posey] becoming a true Alpha. The finale finds Scott in Mexico about to become a Berserker, his friends valiantly searching for him, Peter Hale (Ian Bohen) wanting Scott dead and former Hunter turned werewolf Kate Argent (Jill Wagner) doing bad things for her own still unclear agenda. That’s only the tip of the iceberg of stories vying for air time. …Read On »

Movie Review: INNOCENCE

INNOCENCE movie poster | ©2014 Scion Pictures

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Sophie Curtis, Kelly Reilly, Graham Phillips, Linus Roache Writers: Tristine Skyler and Jane Mendelsohn, based on her novel Director: Hilary Brougher Distributor: Scion Pictures Release Date: September 5, 2014 “Adequate” is probably not a designation most filmmakers seek, but it seems the best word to describe INNOCENCE. Based on Jane Mendelsohn’s 2001 YA novel, with a screenplay by Tristine Skyler and Mendelsohn, INNOCENCE sails serenely along as though no one had ever before made a movie about sinister doings at a high-end high school. This attitude of, well, innocence serves INNOCENCE moderately well for the most part. …Read On »

Nelson, Cameron Mitchell, Neville Brand, Sue Ane Langdon, Ralph Meeker, Larry Storch Writer: Lyn Freeman, Daniel Grodnick, Ben Mett, Steve Mathis Director: Greydon Clark Suggested Retail Price: $26.99 Distributor: Shout! Factory WITHOUT WARNING is one of those oddball 1980 films that was released under different titles and different artwork as it rolled across the nation during platform releases, and like many films that did that, it’s hard to remember exactly what the film was about and which film it is. In most of the posters, there’s an alien on the front …Read On »

Stars: Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman, Zawe Ashton, Michael Smiley, Samuel Anderson, Nicholas Briggs Writer: Steven Moffat & Phil Ford Director: Ben Wheatley  Original Telecast: August 30, 2014 Network: BBC America The first episode of DOCTOR WHO where a new regeneration of The Doctor is introduced is always a bit of a dicey phase. The Doctor is never really who is he is going to be with his new face, and you kind of have to get around all of the more unstable parts of his personality post regeneration. The second episode following a regeneration is typically where we really get …Read On »
