Blu-ray Review: Violent, Action-Packed 8MM Holds Up

Blu-ray Review: 10 TO MIDNIGHT Thrills With Vengeful Glee

10 To Midnight.  It's a relic of its gloriously insane cinematic times, and stars the inimitable (well, there's that one guy, in face only, not in voice) Charles Bronson as Leo Kessler, a man's man hard cop, who, like Dirty Harry,...

Blu-ray Review: Scream Factory's CANDYMAN Release Is Truly Sweet

"Candyman. Candyman. Candyman. Candyman. Candyman." I didn't say it out loud, or in front of a mirror, because nope. NOPE. And of course, I know that Tony Todd is an actual human being who plays the urban legend and anti-hero, but I still won't...

Blu-ray Review: TRICK 'R TREAT Does the Season Right

It's hard to believe, but it's been 11 years since Michael Doughtery's landmark horror anthology Trick 'r Treat was released. It's been almost as long as that since I've seen the film, and it's always interesting to reflect on how much I've...

Blu-ray Review: Scream Factory's CREEPSHOW is a Halloween Treat

Blu-ray Review: HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL, a Fun Product of Its Time
