The Witch Who Came From the Sea (1976)

Another film in the American Film Project released by Arrow Video, The Witch Who Came From the Sea was designated as a video nasty in the U.K. in the early 80’s. Close to fifteen years ago, I went through the video nasty list and watched every title i could get my hands on, including The […]

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 […]

America’s Deadliest Home Video (1993)

Before I begin this review I feel that I should disclose that I write for Lunchmeat magazine, whose head honcho Josh was largely responsible for this flick being released on dvd. In fact I first heard about this flick from Josh’s glowing review in an old issue of Lunchmeat. He discovered the film and loved […]

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 […]

Come Morning (2014)

I believe that when it comes to making a film on a budget, the smartest method is to tell a small story. I’ve seen countless films ruined by their lack of budget because the film maker had a vision and had to execute it even if there wasn’t enough money to do so. Small stories […]

Curtains (1983)

Curtains has been on many many wish lists over the last 15 years, since DVDs became widely available. Every year one horror magazine or another puts out a top 10 list of forgotten or lost films that have yet to make the jump to dvd. Curtains is almost always on those lists. Many people grew […]

House of Mortal Sin (1975)

I’ve been a fan of British director Pete Walker for several years now. He made a series of horror flicks in the 70’s (and one in the 80’s)  that were well written, tightly plotted, and very well acted. His films aren’t known for being graphic gorefests because the censors at the time wouldn’t allow it […]

Hidden in the Woods (2012)

Now this is the right way to do a release. Great box art, reverseable sleeve, a full booklet including liner notes and an interview with the director (!),  a behind the scenes featurette and more. This is a quality release worthy of purchase, especially when you consider how virtually unknown this film is. This isn’t […]

The Rock Hole (2011)

I’m friends with Joe R. Lansdale on Facebook (don’t get jealous he accepts everyone). A while back he posted that he rarely gives quotes for authors but that he read a book by Reavis Z. Worthham and loved it. In his words he said Reavis was the real deal. Having devoured anything Lansdale has written […]

Someone Behind the Door (1971)

I’m a huge Charles Bronson fan. Something about his pencil handle bar mustache and his grim demeanor have always intrigued me. He’s a tough old bastard and I love him for it. In honor of the 10th anniversary of his passing, I pulled out a dusty old vhs copy of Someone Behind the Door, a […]
