A Throwback to the Crime Films of the 70's: Ronin (Arrow Video) Blu-ray Review + Screenshots

I am not that fond of Ronin. I was excited to see the film in the theater upon it's release in 1998. When I walked out of the theater I had mixed feelings. The film looked great, sounded great, had great actor doing great acting, and yet I found the film lackluster.

The Warlock Collection (Vestron Video) Blu-ray Review + Screenshots

Warlock is definitely a product of the 80's (even though the film wasn't released until 1991) Lots of witchcraft going on and the effects remind us of the 80's. The film is really good and I can recommended it wholeheartedly. The sequels, on the other hand, are awful. The second one has some good ideas hampered with bad acting and horrible effects. The third film is bad, but better than the second film.

Japan Makes Godzilla Scary Again: Shin Godzilla (Funimation) Blu-ray Review + Screenshots

While the 2014 Godzilla gave us the monster that we have come to love, this Godzilla is the monster that we met more than 60 years ago. He is leaner, meaner, and surprisingly scary.

The Dead Next Door Proves That Love and Respect Go A Long Way: A Blu-ray Review + Screenshots

The Dead Next Door is a passion project from a filmmaker who didn't care about the fame or the money. He just wanted to make a horror film that he could show around town. He not only did this, but he got his entire town (Arkin, Ohio) to get in on the action and be a part of the film as it was being made.

Who's Gonna Believe A Talking Head? Re-Animator: Limited Edition (Arrow Video) Blu-ray Review + Screenshots ***Updated***

Re-Animator is an all time classic in the horror genre. Here was a film that giving us the goods while making us laugh. There were not many horror films that did that. It also helped that the film was so gory that the filmmakers didn't even submit it to the ratings board because they knew they would get a "X" rating (the precursor to the NC-17 rating). The filmmakers released the film unrated and this turned out to be a wise choice.  Re-Animator is an amazing film and it finally has an amazing blu-ray to compliment it.
