Rating: PG-13 Stars: Claire Holt, Mandy Moore, Matthew Modine Writers: Johannes Roberts & Ernest Riera Director: Johannes Roberts Distributor: Dimension Films/Entertainment Studios Motion Pictures Release Date: June 16, 2017  The original JAWS is rightly a classic, but since then audiences have learned to be wary of shark movies. SHARKNADO gonzo parody aside, they can be a cheesy bunch, with 2004’s destabilizing OPEN WATER a rare exception. Well, surprise. 47 METERS DOWN has most of the makings of a first-rate horror movie: a plausible set-up, multiple sources of jeopardy, an environment that’s terrifying all on its own, ace special effects and […]Read On »

Factory Suggested Retail Price: $29.99 You have to hand it to Universal Pictures in 1977. Still reeling from the blockbuster success of JAWS in 1975, they were clearly anxious to replicate that success. Instead of immediately dipping back into shark-infested waters, they tried something else with THE CAR. Taking the major beats from JAWS and replacing the shark with a demonic car, it seemed as if this would be […]Read On »

Stars: Ian Ziering, Tara Reid, Cassie Scerbo, Jaason Simmons, Aubrey Peeples, Chuck Hittinger, John Heard Writer: Thunder Levin Director: Anthony C. Ferrante Network: Syfy Channel Original Airdate: Thursday, July 11 @ 9 PM [Full disclosure, SHARKNADO is directed by Assignment X  founder Anthony C. Ferrante, but he allowed us to review the film anyway] Important fact: sharks are in fact relatively delicate creatures that would not survive oxygen deprivation, chlorine, the Los Angeles sewage system or other environmental disruptions depicted here; to the extent they did survive, they would be fighting to breathe, not trying to consume everything in sight.

Stars: Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw, Richard Dreyfuss, Lorraine Gray, Murray Hamilton Writers: Peter Benchley, Carl Gottlieb based on the novel by Peter Benchley Director: Steven Spielberg Suggested Retail Price: $29.98 For those of us who have lived through the VHS incarnations, the DVD versions and the super special remastered DVD versions of our favorite movies, the excitement level for new format re-releases does feel anti-climactic at times. That said, there are still a few movies that get the kid-at-heart excited especially when it comes to a Blu-ray release. The STAR WARS saga, the INDIANA JONES films and now, well JAWS. […]Read On »
