Security Review

‘Security’ is a movie that aims low and stays on target. Antonio Banderas, far removed from his days as the guitar case gunslinger in Desperado, plays a two dimensional archetype—a former soldier, struggling to find work to see his family who are forced to live two states away. The soldier finds work as an overnight… Continue reading Security Review

You can pick it up for $20 on Amazon, and that'll get you the Blu-ray, DVD, and two Digital HD versions of the film (the theatrical cut and the… Continue reading The Fate of the Furious Blu-ray Review

Shocker Review

This may surprise some people, but Shocker is one of my all time favorite movies from the late great Wes Craven. I first got hooked on it during late night showings on basic cable back when I was growing up. The story is a little bit like Nightmare On Elm Street, in fact you might… Continue reading Shocker Review

Dracula Untold Review

There may have been a very good reason this Dracula’s story was untold. It’s just a shame it didn’t remain that way. This movie should really have been titled Edward Untold as it is just an obvious attempt to take an established character and turn him into a swooning icon for the twenty-something audience who… Continue reading Dracula Untold Review

Trick r’ Treat Review

In Halloween 3, John Carpenter wanted to turn the Halloween franchise into a kind of Twilight Zone series of interconnected but unrelated horror stories that just happened to fall on Halloween. Unfortunately, this was after the Michael Myers character had already taken a deep hold over the series. I think Trick R' Treat however, is… Continue reading Trick r’ Treat Review

Bone Tomahawk Review

This is a hell of a year for Kurt Russel fans. Not having done a western of any kind since Tombstone, 2015 will see him star in two oaters, this being the first, and the second one being QT’s upcoming ‘Hateful 8’. Bone Tomahawk (a truly great title) is billed as a genre-crossing horror western,… Continue reading Bone Tomahawk Review

Beetlejuice Review

My wife is among the world’s biggest Tim Burton fans, and this of course, is one of her favorite movies. Growing up I recall loving it too. It’s strange looking back now how little actual screen time Michael Keaton gets in the title role here, but it’s telling how much that he manages to do… Continue reading Beetlejuice Review

Nosferatu Review

While far be it from me to condone direct theft/plagiarism, I will say here, that even though this movie was a direct rip-off of Bram Stroker’s Dracula, as a motion picture, it remains superior to any subsequent attempt to film the Dracula story, even to this day. This is another review from the big 50-pack… Continue reading Nosferatu Review

Army of Darkness Review

At the end of Evil Dead 2 Ash, (who while not killing the undead demonic hordes of the world is a humble retail sales associate at S-Mart) jumped into this time vortex thingy-what-have-you or whatever and it transported him back to medieval times where he must use his cunning badassedry to help save a simple… Continue reading Army of Darkness Review

Evil Dead 2 Review

Still trapped in the same cabin from part one, Ash, the sole survivor from last time out, still finds himself battling the undead. To keep things interesting a few interlopers and visitors pop up here and there, but mostly, this is Ashley’s inner-badass coming out party bay-bay. Evil Dead 2 is the film most people… Continue reading Evil Dead 2 Review

The Evil Dead Review

As we get nearer to Halloween, I was struggling to think of more horror titles to fit in with the QDR series when the ‘Evil Dead’ franchise popped in my head. This works as a double tie-in with the Halloween season, plus the new TV series starting this fall starring none other than Mr. Bruce… Continue reading The Evil Dead Review

The Little Shop of Horrors Review

I’m a sucker for old Roger Corman flicks and other such “D-Movie” shenanigans, but this movie was just a really lazy and rushed affair. I’m not one to normally harp on the superiority of remakes, but the 1986 musical version of this story is superior in just about every way. I found this flick as… Continue reading The Little Shop of Horrors Review
