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.

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 »

Blu-ray Review: FRIDAY THE 13th: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION

FRIDAY THE 13th - THE COMPLETE COLLECTION | ©2013 Warner Bros. / Paramount Pictures

Original Release Date: September 13, 2013 Distributor: Warner Bros./Paramount Pictures Suggested Retail Price: $129.95 The FRIDAY THE 13th films may be wildly loved by horror fans (and those with nostalgia filled eyes for the good old days of slasher movies), the treatment on DVD and Blu-ray has been a splotchy one at best. Every time Paramount has attempted to do a box set or repackage the films, it always feels like something is lacking. It’s a damned if you do, damned if you don’t thing. The problem being, the first eight movies in the franchise were low budget efforts and […]Read On »
