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 […]
Best friends Derek and Clif set out on a trip of lifetime. Their plan: travel to the ends of the earth, see the world, and live life to the fullest. But the trip soon takes a dark and bloody turn. Just days in, one of the men shows signs of a mysterious affliction which gradually takes over his entire body and being. Now, thousands of miles from home, in a foreign land, they must race to uncover the source before it consumes him completely. Footage meant to be travel memories may now become evidence of one of the most shocking discoveries ever captured on film…and perhaps will be their only postcard home.
This isn’t going to be like most of the useless reviews of Spike Lee’s Oldboy remake that you’ve already seen. It has been a long enough time since I have seen the original Oldboy, so that I can review this film on its own standing, and not spend the bulk of the review convincing you […]

Most people won’t admit when a movie scares them. Every time a new film is released that critics are claiming is the scariest film of the year, immediately on social media, you’ll see claims from people stating they weren’t scared at all. The problem with that claim is, I have to sit in a movie […]
Sony has released a new line of Blu-Ray catalog titles, known as “Mastered in 4K”. Originally, people had mistaken the releases as “4K” releases. Meaning, you would need top-of-the-line equipment to actually be able to play them. As it turns out, rather than being 4K Blu Rays, these are movies that have been re-transferred to […]
If you spend any amount of time on the internet, which, for our sake, we hope you do, you already know that Sam Raimi’s 1981 classic The Evil Dead was “remade”. Not only did it have Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell’s blessing, but they were heavily involved with the production. The story goes, Sam had […]
I will admit i was extremely questionable about ‘The Evil Dead’ being remade, though after the insanity of the red band trailer that hit the web recently i must recant my previous feelings. As opposed to dreading this films existence i am now eagerly anticipating it’s arrival. Continue on after the jump for the film’s […]
It seems like it’s been forever since we’ve gotten a new film from Guillermo del Toro. Looking back at his filmography confirms that his last directorial turn was just about three years ago, when he brought us Hellboy II. Of course, if you’ve been following the man’s career during the time after that film, then […]
The original Straw Dogs is not a flawless film. It does however, deserve the cult status it has obtained. When I watch a remake, I do my best to judge the film on its own merits, rather than constantly comparing it to the original. The crew being Straw Dogs made this impossible for me to […]
Director Troy Nixey’s creepy tale of creature dentistry has been announced for a January 3rd 2012 release date for both Blu-ray and DVD. The Guillermo Del Toro production features Guy Pearce and Katie Holmes as a couple renovating an old house. Guy Pearce’s character’s daughter soon realizes that they are not the only residents in […]
December 27th will see the DVD and Digital release of Hostel 3 through Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Eli Roth is no longer at the helm, instead Scott Spiegel has moved up from his Executive Producer status on the first two movies to take the director’s chair on this second sequel. If you’ve seen his 1989 […]
The sequel to 2008’s Quarantine is set for its release onto DVD on August 2nd through Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Quarantine was a remake of the 2007 flick [REC], although for Quarantine 2 writer/director John G. Pogue has come up with a totally new direction in which to take the story.
It may have been a little longer in arriving than many of us would have liked, but REC 2 is ready to hit the shelves. July 12th will see the sequel to the 2007 Zombie/Infection movie released on DVD.
The first Quarantine was adapted from the same screenplay as the Spanish film “REC’. The two movies were in production at virtually the same time, though Quarantine was released a little later. Despite this fact, it’s still met with the same level of vitriolic bandwagon minded remake bashing that any other remake receives, especially if […]
