Films are supposed to be fun, entertaining ventures that allow an escape from the day-to-day […]

STREETS OF FIRE: A Review of Shout! Factory’s Rock & Roll Fable On Blu-ray!

STREETS OF FIRE: A Review of Shout! Factory’s Rock & Roll Fable On Blu-ray!

The 1980’s were a fantastic time, and although I may not have had a chance to experience the neon decade myself, a look back at 80’s cinema can tell you that. The risks taken by studios just 30 years ago were incredible. Film wasn’t oversaturated by comic book adaptations, remakes, and repeat stories that were […]

THE DEVIL’S CANDY: Ethan Embry Slays In Sean Byrne’s Tasty New Flick!

Metal and horror go together like peanut butter and jelly. As cliché as that sounds, there’s no better way to put it. From graphic album covers to “shock rock” acts such as Alice Cooper or Gwar, rock and roll/metal and horror are like two peas in a pod. There’ve been multiple 80’s horror films that […]

Horror On Blu-ray Review — They’re Back! ‘Poltergeist II: The Other Side’

Alright, listen, creepy old men done correctly are always scary, period! There is nothing more terrifying than a decrepit old man sinisterly smiling at the camera and or protagonist. It’s a bone chilling fear that plays on the comfort we feel with the elderly. Our grandparents are the most loving people in the world, they […]

Book Review: David Castello’s “The Diary of an Immortal”

Book Review: David Castello’s “The Diary of an Immortal”
