House & House II: The Second Story Blu

When I was a kid, I grew up watching a lot of T.V. I remember on weekends watching cheesy action flicks, sci-fi movies, and horror flicks that played on basic cable. Films like The Thing and Big Trouble in Little China, the Puppet Master movies, and more would play on lazy Saturday afternoons when my […]

Shinjuku Triad Society (1995)

Takashi Miike is a devisive director. He’s spent his very prolific career cranking out hyper violent cheap yakuza films, bizarre and often highly disgusting personal films, dramas, a musical, family fantasy films, and high class respectable art cinema. He’s had a varied career to say the list. Best known for Audition, Ichi the Killer, 13 […]

Cinema Paradiso (1989)

Cinema Paradiso is a film that I’ve heard and read about for years. It often lands on Best Of lists and can be found in many film books. For whatever reason I never checked it out. I never really knew what the movie was about and the poster art left me cold. Something about the […]

Psychomania (1973)

I’ll be honest with you: I’m not a fan of biker movies. I’ve seen a very small number of them but i’m certainly not in the cult of motorcycles. I think motorcycles are neat and all but the exploitation films of the 60’s and 70’s usually leave me cold. The idea just doesn’t float my […]

C.H.U.D. (1984)

Back during the dvd boom of the early 2000’s when Anchor Bay was king, I picked up C.H.U.D. dirt cheap. I love horror movies (obviously) but my favorite kind of horror movie is the monster flick. Gimmie a monster and i’m a happy fan. I watched it and liked it, but didn’t love it. The […]

Female Prisoner #701: Scorpion (1972)

I’ve known about the Female Prisoner #701 for many years. Despite this knowledge I’ve never been able to get my hands on any of the films. More often than not the series would go out of print on DVD causing their prices to skyrocket and frankly I had given up. Thanks to the new set […]

The Hills Have Eyes (1977)

Back when I was a kid I distinctly remember watching The Last House on the Left and The Hills Have Eyes. I loved A Nightmare on Elm Street and for some reason my folks were ok with me renting Wes Craven movies. I remember being grossed out by The Last House on the Left and […]

Hired to Kill (1990)

Usually the films Arrow Video releases are cult cinema that has some kind of artistic merit to them. Not so with Hired to Kill. This one is just balls to the wall silly fun and I wouldn’t want it any other way. Starring George “I’ve won Oscars but I need a paycheck” Kennedy, Oliver “No […]

Return of the Killer Tomatoes (1988)

When I was a kid growing up, the Killer Tomatoes were a part of pop culture knowledge. Every now and then there would be a reference on a sitcom or a clip seen from the original film floating around T.V. land. The original film played on tv every now and then but sadly I never […]

What Have You Done To Solange? (1972)

About a decade ago (has it been that long?!) I went on a giallo binge. I looked up lists online and tried to knock out the best of the best. I remembered watching this flick and not having my socks blown when I saw it. When I got the Blu it was great timing, I […]
