Madhouse (1981)

There was a time in my early 20s when I discovered the video nasties. These were films banned in the U.K. in the early 80’s for being too extreme. In some cases the films were merely banned because of the box art, not because of the film itself. In all there were 74 films that […]

Brain Damage (1988)

  I distinctly remember renting Brain Damage on vhs when I was in junior high. I saw it at the video store and honestly thought the movie was going to star Jeff Goldblum because of the box art. I also knew it was going to have a monster in it and I’ve always loved creature […]

Obsessions (1969)

Believe it or not, a film co-written by Martin Scorsese with music from Bernard Herrmann (Hitchcock’s main composer, De Palma used him too) went unreleased in the U.S. until now. The film, Obsessions, was released in 1969 and is considered the first Dutch horror film and was the first Dutch film sold in numerous territories […]

VHS Massacre (2017)

I grew up in the glory days of small video stores with shelves stacked with wonderful (and terrible) films for me to salivate over. As a kid i spend my summers watching stacks of VHS tapes picked out from the local mom & pop video store so of course i’m a sucker for vhs era […]

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 […]

Cathy’s Curse (1976)

Severin Films is a distributor I always keep an eye on. They always do a fantastic job restoring the films they release and loading them up with special features. They dig deep to find funky flicks that more often than not have been forgotten by most. Canadian film Cathy’s Curse is one such film. Languishing […]

Dream Stalker / Death By Love (2017)

Intervision has built up a reputation for finding all manner of unique, trashy, and little seen genre cinema. From their gore-tastic release of The Burning Moon, to their low-fi WTF film Things, to their sexploitation flicks, they have unearthed some very interesting and entertaining films. They also gave a proper release to shot-on-video horror film […]

The Survivor (1981)

I’m a sucker for exploitation cinema (or just cinema in general) from Australia. I used to watch The Road Warrior a lot as a kid (it was often on tv) and it gave me a taste for cinema from OZ.  I like to keep my peeper peeled for unique films from down under so when […]

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 […]

Wax Mask (1997)

At one time the Italian film industry could go toe to toe with any other country producing cinema. Some of the greatest films in cinema history were made there. Later, Italy began churning out stylish, shocking, and unique films that cult movie fans devoured by the bushel. Dario Argento is one such creator of stylish […]
