Mondo - Fantastic Fest 2016 Review: Fabio Frizzi Scores THE BEYOND Live

Photo of Frizzi and band at the San Diego show by Emilie Black of EmyBPhoto. When it comes to horror --- specifically weird Italian horror --- Fabio Frizzi is a household name, nearly synonymous with the director of the films...

Blu-ray Review: A BLADE IN THE DARK, From 88 Films

Director Lamberto Bava is probably most famous for being the son of legendary Italian director Mario Bava. The elder Bava is one of those filmmakers whose work is ubiquitous among hardcore horror fans, but his reach beyond that is minimal. Nevertheless,...

The Stack Holiday Gift Guide 2014, Scary Movies: Episode 6 Includes SHOCK WAVES, PROM NIGHT, And More

Welcome back to The Stack! While I'm doing gift guide episodes, I also need to do one or two regular episodes covering the other stuff that pours into ye olde office. But the truth is that all of this stuff...

The Stack: BAY OF BLOOD is Blu, 5 DOLLS FOR AN AUGUST MOON, FROM UP ON POPPY HILL, FRANKENSTEIN'S ARMY, THE FUGITIVE Runs Onto Blu And More

In this week's edition of my home entertainment roundup, Bava is beautiful on Blu, old English  character actors fight the undead, Miyazaki offers up another masterpiece, a one armed man almost whips Indiana Jones, and NO PLACE ON EARTH rocks off...

THE HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY Blu-ray Review

Before he moved into the ultra-gore films for which he's best known now, Lucio Fulci was on the giallo bandwagon, like many Italian filmmakers.  However, following the runaway success of his Romero rip-off, Zombi 2 (Zombie, Zombie Flesh Eaters, Etc...)...

Blue Underground Invites You To THE HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY, On Blu-ray 9/27

Blue Underground are one of the many home video labels out there doing fantastic work, and that makes me extremely excited for this announcement.  On September 27th, they'll be releasing Lucio Fulci's The House by the Cemetery on a brand...

THE BEYOND Blu-ray Review

The Beyond is one of my very favorite films.  In my opinion, it is Lucio Fulci's masterpiece, better than anything he'd done before or after.  As such, I was ecstatic when Arrow Video revealed to me last Fall that they...

Blu-ray Review: A Bay Of Blood

I know we've already had a review from the very capable keyboard of James Dennis, but I can't help wanting to chime in on this package.  He summarized the plot quite nicely, so I think I'll borrow that, rather than...

A BAY OF BLOOD Blu-ray Review

Like some deranged, X-rated episode of Miss Marple, Mario Bava's giallo slasher crossover is a gleefully sinister tale where anyone and everyone is a suspect. Beautiful, blackly comic and disturbing it pre-dates the golden era of US slashers that owe...

Arrow Video Announces THE BEYOND Blu And More!

I announced this here a while ago, but the news just became more official.  Arrow Video have posted the Rick Melton's custom cover art and specs for their world exclusive Blu-ray presentation of The Beyond.  In my opinion, this film...

ScreenAnarchy Top Kills: THE BEYOND

Lucio Fulci's magnum opus makes its second appearance in the Top Kills for a rather unorthodox scene.  Not every memorable kill is the result of man-on-man violence, nor even beast-on-man violence.  Sometimes it is just enough to get someone freaked...

Mario Bava Comes To Blu-ray With BAY OF BLOOD from Arrow November 2nd

Has it really taken four years for a company to realize that Mario Bava's entire oeuvre is perfect for Blu-ray?  Apparently so, at least it is being done up right by one of the current kings of the international home...
