  1. Blu-ray Review: "We Are the Flesh" (2016)

    After seemingly wandering a ruined city for years in search of food and shelter, two siblings find their way into one of the last remaining buildings. Inside, they find a man who will make them a dangerous offer to survive the outside world.

    For me, this film is all about the rich color of the cinematography (from Yollótl Alvarado), the depth of the sound (from Esteban Aldrete), and the overall atmosphere. I could have used a bit less dizzying camera movement, however, though it does ...
  2. Blu-ray Review: "Colors" (1988)

    An experienced cop (Robert Duvall) and his rookie partner (Sean Penn) patrol the streets of East Los Angeles while trying to keep the gang violence under control.

    Looking back now (2017), this film seems so normal, something that could be included in a long list of L.A. gang movies, with the Crips and Bloods fighting it out for turf. We all know about "gangsta rap" and Compton and South Central and all of that. But then you look at the date this film was released -- 1988 ...
  3. Book Review: "Vampire Films of the 1970s"

    The latest book from Gary A. Smith and McFarland is “Vampire Films of the 1970s: Dracula to Blacula and Every Fang Between”. For the casual horror fan, this might force the question: isn’t that oddly specific? Couldn’t we just have a book on 1970s horror films or a book on vampire movies?

    Of course, you could have a book on either of those wider topics, but once you crack open Smith’s book, you will realize this seemingly specific topic is actually very large and unusually diverse. ...

    Looking for that cannibalistic road flick that offers up some serious dirt and grime? Then feel free to feast your eyes upon Drifter, the first feature film from director Chris von Hoffmann - unapologetic, in your face, violent - all the things that make dusty cinema worth the watch!

    The movie centers around a couple of outlaw brothers named Dominic and Miles, and their jaunt across some seriously desolate highway (apocalyptically speaking) ...

  5. Blu-ray Review: "Psychomania" (1973)

    A gang of young people calling themselves the Living Dead terrorize the population of their small town. After an agreement with the devil, if they kill themselves firmly believing in it, they will return and gain eternal life. Following their leader, they commit suicide one after the other, but things do not necessarily turn out as expected...

    The film started out as a production from Benmar Productions, which predominately made Spaghetti Westerns in Spain (such as "Captain Apache") ...
