Blu-ray Review: THE HILLS HAVE EYES PART 2

THE HILLS HAVE EYES PART 2 Blu-ray| ©2019 Arrow Video

Stars: Michael Berryman, Tamara Stafford, John Bloom, John Laughlin, Janus Blythe Writer: Wes Craven Director: Wes Craven Distributor: Arrow Video Suggested Retail Price: $34.99 Filmed before Wes Craven’s seminal 1984 classic A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET and released in the U.S. a year later, THE HILLS HAVE EYES PART 2 is an obvious cash grab by all involved serving as a follow-up to Craven’s own 1977 cult hit. While some of the inventiveness Craven displayed in ELM STREET is missing here, there is some considerable charm to THE HILLS HAVE EYES PART 2 in both its coherent and incoherent attempts […]Read On »

MOUNTAINTOP MOTEL MASSACRE Blu-ray | ©2019 Vinegar Syndrome

Rated: R Stars: Bill Thurman, Anna Chappell, Will Mitchell Writer: Jim McCullough Jr. Director: Jim McCullough Sr. Distributor: Vinegar Syndrome Suggested Retail Price: $24.99 While not as well known as most slasher movies from the 1980s, MOUNTAINTOP MOTEL MASSACRE is a curious relic from the era that has actually aged quite gracefully. Directed by Jim McCullough Sr. and written by Jim McCullough Jr. , the film mixes PSYCHO with standard slasher fare for an occasionally spooky and atmospheric ride accompanied by a creepy score by Rob Dilulio. The film begins with the introduction of Mountaintop Motel proprietor Evelyn (Anna Chappell), […]Read On »

SEX IN THE CITY was a huge cultural phenomenon and a major break-out success for HBO. Now, the prequel THE CARRIE DIARIES is landing at The CW this winter based on the Candace Bushnell book and focusing on Carrie Bradshaw’s high school years. AnnaSophia Robb plays the iconographic Carrie, and she was well of the big high heels she had to fill. “When I landed the role, I remember having a conversation with [showrunner] Amy [B. Harris who said] ‘we don’t want you to emulate Sarah Jessica Parker’s performance,” says Robb. “I loved the show SEX IN THE CITY. I […]Read On »

CD review: THE BLOB original soundtrack (2,000 edition)

THE BLOB original soundtrack | ©2011 La La Land Records

Ahhh, to be back in the synth-driven days of horror scoring, especially covered in red, keyboard goo, voices, dark strings and feverish percussion that accompanies the 1988 BLOB– all placed into an undulating musical mass by Michael Hoenig. Having played with Tangerine Dream, Hoenig’s first synth credit was gracing GALAXY OF TERROR before establishing his own composing chops on such genre cult favorites as MAX HEADROOM, THE WRAITH, THE GATE and I, MADMAN. While THE BLOB’s music seems to be all effectively shapeless stings dribbling tones, and militarism for the true government bio-villains, Hoenig’s score really kicks into gear during […]Read On »

CD Review: Lady Gaga – BORN THIS WAY

Lady Gaga - BORN THIS WAY | ©2011 Interscope Records

Distributor: Interscope Suggested Retail Price: $12.99 You have to hand it to Lady Gaga. She loves to let her freak flag fly, and she’s done such an amazing job of cultivating this performance-art persona, that she’s become more famous for what she wears, rather than what she’s actually singing. That of course is the big dichotomy her career is facing. She’s clearly pushed the envelope as far as she can with her costumes, and now, she really needs to start bringing the attention back to the fact that she’s not that bad a singer and a pretty accomplished songwriter (even […]Read On »

CD Review: MEGAFORCE soundtrack

MEGAFORCE Soundtrack | ©2011 Buysoundtrax

Sure there’s THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW, but Barry Bostwick’s most outrageous exercise in retro-camp might just be 1982’s MEGAFORCE, a proto-G.I. JOE exercise in souped-up spandex do-gooding, blessed with extra oh-so ’80’s musical oomph by composer Jerrold Immel. Immel had the macho sound of TV scoring down with the likes of HARRY O and POLICE WOMAN when America’s first line of motorized defense came knocking at his studio in the tight-fitted form of Bostwick as “Ace” Hunter. Immel rose to the not-too-serious challenge with the rocking synth pads that any connoisseur of the decade’s action cheese would dig- “dated” […]Read On »

Dan Fogler is Gribble in MARS NEEDS MOMS | ©2011 ImageMovers Digital LLC.

After making an impression with his starring role in the hilarious BALLS OF FURY, Dan Fogler has been moving up the ladder as a stand-out in such films as FANBOYS and the recently released TAKE ME HOME TONIGHT. The actor gets to stretch even further in the new 3D CGI animated Disney Film MARS NEEDS MOMS where he plays Gribble – an adult who was stranded on Mars in the 1980s as a kid. Now has a chance to right some wrongs by helping a new kid named Milo who has arrived to the Red Planet and wants to save […]Read On »

CD Review: CLUE Original Soundtrack

Clue Soundtrack | © 2011 La La Land Records

For all of the toy-to-movie adaptations ever made by Hollywood, 1985’s CLUE still stands as the only one done from a board game (sorry doubters, but JUMANJI was made up for that film). Director Jonathan Lynne’s staging of CLUE’s lethal antics as an all-star bedroom farce further propelled the picture to cult status. Now a phenomenon that’s grown to ROCKY HORROR stage show heights gets another wonderful knife in the attic with the release of John Morris’ wonderfully antic underscore, a Baroque-style dark and stormy night of screwball music. As the prime musical suspect behind such Mel Brooks satires as […]Read On »
