The Ghoul (2017)

Rare is the film that Arrow puts out that hasn’t been released somewhere else before. Arrow is almost exclusively a label dedicated to re-releasing cult gems from around the world but they have released a few new releases as well. The Ghoul is one such film that is getting it’s premiere on the label. Not […]

Phenomena (1985)

  About 15 years ago I discovered Dario Argento. I remember I was hanging out at my girlfriend’s house (she’s now my wife), and I was watching one of her cable channels I didn’t have. It was a horror marathon hosted by Tom Savini. He was showing Suspiria and had interviews with Argento and trivia […]

The Slayer (1982)

  In my journeys through horror I have come across praise for The Slayer in some far flung corners. Never attributed as being one of the best horror flicks of the 80’s nor a hidden gem, still it has garnered some accolades though quiet enough that I can’t remember where or when. One of the […]

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 […]
