Movie Review-The Vampire Bat – Special Edition (The Film Detective Restored Version) [Blu-ray]

Review-Across the street from a pizza place I worked at in college. The year was 1987, and they had this run down art house theater. They did a midnight showing of this film. The girl I worked with just dumped her boyfriend and I asked her if she wanted to get a soda at the

Movie Review-The Other Hell [Blu-ray]

Review-Who would have thought in my life they would have a genre that exploits nuns? I grew up in catholic church and went to a catholic school for a year or two. I did not ever think of those old women as sexual, maybe evil but not fuckable. Thinking about this right now, makes me

Movie Review-The Autopsy of Jane Doe [Blu-ray]

Before I start this review, I want to thank the fine folks at Shout Factory for an awesome seven years. As some people may or may not know yet, in June I am leaving the site. It has been a fun ride and I am so grateful for every moment of it. I know Tom

Movie Review-Empire State of the Dead (DVD)

Review-Anthology films are a fixture for indie horror. Much like the found footage. It is cheap and when executed correctly could make someone noticed very fast. When I heard that Ron Bonk was putting his name on an anthology film, it had me excited. SRS Cinema in the last 12 months, have put out two

Movie Review-Naciye (DVD)

Review-As weird as it is intriguing, “ Naciye” in its own way tells the story about a Turkish couple that is watching their marriage fail. Bertan is very nice but he is not too bright and his woman is pregnant and very frustrated with him. They rent a home on the Marmara Coast. Bertan sees

Movie Review-Abandoned Dead (DVD)

Review-The feeling you have when you go somewhere that seems so familiar to you, and then you come to a realization you never been there before. You cannot shake off the feeling that you feel you have been there before. That was the feeling I had watching “ Abandoned Dead”, the latest film by the

Movie Review-Minutes Past Midnight (DVD)

Review-Justin McConnell first hit my radar with the criminally underrated gem, “ The Collapsed”. Everyone hailed Justin as the next big breakout director. 6 years have passed and we are still singing his praises with “ Minutes Past Midnight”. Along with producer Avi Federgreen, they present an anthology of nine standalone short stories that will

Movie Review-The Watcher (DVD)

Review-I am so torn on “ The Watcher”. My heart says one thing and my brain says another. Director Ryan Rothmaier reminds me of the kid who dreams about getting to pitch a baseball game. He sits there and waits for his shot to get to the mound and throw that damn ball. He thinks

Movie Review-Dream Stalker (DVD)

Review-So I was watching the credits for “ The Founder”. It has a name in the credits that caught my attention, Christopher Mills. Is this the same Christopher Mills who did the 1991 baddie film I have to review, “ Dream Stalker”? My curiosity took me to IMDB to see that in fact it was

Movie Review-House: Two Stories (House, House II: The Second Story) (2-Disc Limited Edition) [Blu-ray]

Review-New World Video saw horror going in all these different directions. Where, the early 80’s were the era when horror was just everywhere. You had the critics like Roger Ebert always fighting against where horror is heading, while other critics like Leonard Maltin understood that horror was never going to satisfy everyone but understood the
