    "The Godfather Of Gore" - come on now, what more of an introduction could you POSSIBLY ask for? His name: Herschell Gordon Lewis. His legacy? Untouched as the man who doused enough blood around in copious quantities that the whole world could be awash in crimson...okay, maybe I'm embellishing a bit, but when I was graced with this gorgeous boxed set in the mail for review, let's just say that my stomach was getting a bit upset from all the cartwheels ...

  2. Blu-ray Review: "C.H.U.D." (1984)

    A bizarre series of murders in New York City seems to point toward the existence of a race of mutant cannibals living under the streets.

    This is a pretty good 1980s horror film, though there seem to be fewer elements of horror and more elements of a corrupt government. Always a popular theme, and addressed in sort of a light way here. I do not get the impression that anyone was trying to be critical of the real government or make some kind of political statement.

  3. Blu-ray Review: "To Live and Die in L.A." (1985)

    A fearless Secret Service agent (William Petersen) will stop at nothing to bring down the counterfeiter (Willem Dafoe) who killed his partner (Michael Greene).

    As with many movies, this one began as a novel by a former Secret Service agent.

    While trying to understand a frightening reoccurring nightmare, a pledge (Daphne Zuniga) is coaxed into breaking into her father (Clu Gulager)'s department store by her sorority sisters, where a deranged killer targets the girls and their boyfriends.

    This film's genesis seems pretty standard. Fresh out of school, Charles Pratt (who has gone on to make a name for himself in soap operas) pitched a script to New World. They accepted it, and brought on actress Daphne Zuniga, who had recently ...
  5. Blu-ray Review: "Nighthawks" (1981)

    Conservative street cop DaSilva (Sylvester Stallone) reluctantly agrees to terminate an international terrorist (Rutger Hauer) who has demanded media attention. But DaSilva's "at-home" tactics are very much put to the challenge.

    The story was originally intended to be produced as "The French Connection III" by screenwriter David Shaber ("The Warriors") at Twentieth Century Fox, with Gene Hackman's Popeye Doyle teamed up with a wisecracking cop (tentatively ...
