When they discover that the rats are living in the subway, they try to prevent a new subway line from opening before all hell breaks loose underground. This is man’s last desperate, bloody battle to preserve the existence of the human race!

As they hunt for a monster among them, rumors mount and many of the eccentric residents become suspects, from the newly-arrived Gypsy family to the wealthy Godfrey clan. In the twisted world of Hemlock Grove, everyone hides a dark secret.
This is a somewhat light week for Blu-ray releases, as far as quantity goes. In regards to quality, though, it is a pretty spectacular week. We have a Scream Factory release of a film once thought to be lost forever, and one of the most anticipated releases from Grindhouse since they started releasing Blu-ray. Also […]

Lately, I’ve been falling further and further behind on reviews. This is mostly due to the sheer volume of discs that make their way to my doorstep. Couple that with having a hellspawn of a toddler, and getting behind is quite easy. I will still be doing full reviews of discs, but I thought I’d […]
Scream Factory’s Summer of Fear Drive-in series continues this Friday the 13th of all nights, with a special free screening of Night of the Demons. Just like last time, there will be several breaks in between, so that they can air a never-before-seen interview with director Kevin Tenney and actress Amelia Kinkade. Last week saw […]
Who loves you more than Scream Factory, seriously? These guys not only bring us some of the greatest Blu-ray releases of genre films that other companies wouldn’t touch with a ten-foot-pole, but they’re constantly doing things for the fans. Things like the Summer Of Fear activity, sales, giveaways, social events, all kinds of amazing things […]
I have seen Ravenous at least a couple dozen times. I’ve seen it on VHS, and I’ve seen it on DVD, and now, thanks to Scream Factory, I have seen it on Blu-ray, and I couldn’t be happier. I read a scathing review of the disc before I watched it, as I’m sure some of […]
It has been a long time since the last time I watched The Legend Of Hell House, so I’m very excited that I’m finally going to be given the chance to revisit it on Blu-ray, from none other than Scream Factory, of course. The disc drops on the 26th of August as part of the […]
This is another Blu-ray release, that I wish existed a year prior. Last summer, we recorded a retrospective podcast series, covering the entirety of the Sleepaway Camp series, and could have really used a loaded, UNCUT Blu-ray release of the first film. We made due with what was available, though, and now I can revisit […]
I’ve only seen Werner Herzog’s rendition of Nosferatu once, and it was an extremely long time ago. So, when I heard that Scream Factory was giving it the Blu-ray treatment, I was extremely excited to check it out. If you haven’t seen it, Klaus Kinski portrays Count Dracula, and Bruno Ganz plays Jonathan Harker. If […]
I’ll admit two things. Number one, I’ve never seen Phantom of the Paradise before. I’ve known of its existence, but I have yet to take it in. Number Two, I’m not the worlds biggest musical fan, even when it deals with subject matter that interests me, but I’m willing to give anything a shot. Especially […]
Normally, this is the part of the review where I wax nostalgic, and talk a little bit about what this particular “cult classic” means to me. In the case of Evilspeak, though, I can only claim to have known of its existence. I saw it on the video store shelf, but I never made the […]
After the recent resurgence of French genre cinema, it is impossible for a new French horror movie to be released, without being met with ridiculous expectations. Suddenly every French film has to be compared to Inside, Martyrs or High Tension. Well, here’s a newsflash for you, just like in the USA, not every French genre […]
I have what one might call a complicated relationship with Chiller original programming, especially movies. The main issue is, I want to like them, since the eventual Blu-ray release will most definitely be released by Shout!/Scream, but in most cases, I don’t. In all honesty, despite its shortcomings, Beneath has been the first Chiller original […]
The Slumber Party Massacre was released in November of 1982. I was four years old at the time, so of course I didn’t see it until several years later, when I was having a family member drive me to my home away from home, the local video store, every day of my life. I’m not […]
