  1. Best Horror Film of 2017? A review of "A Dark Song"

    A determined young woman and a damaged occultist risk their lives and souls to perform a dangerous ritual that will grant them what they want.

    "A Dark Song" is already being praised as one of the best horror films of 2017. While it is always good to be skeptical about such hype or buzz, especially when it is coming out of the film's own PR machine, in this case it just so happens to be true. This film is bound to make it on to many best-of lists for the year.
  2. Blu-ray Review: "The Zodiac Killer" (1971)

    The San Francisco area is beset by a series of seemingly random murders without motive or pattern. The police are taunted by phone calls and letters. Could the maniac be the violent truck driver, or the seemingly mild-mannered mailman, or even a cop?

She has also appeared on the stage throughout the country, and even had her own band for ...

    The ace cop of a totalitarian police force and a drifting android play their parts in a post-apocalyptic society. They are destined to fight. Their encounter will change them forever.

For me, other than that funky saxophone player, I find it to be a waste of just about everyone's time. The film is rife with references to "Blade Runner", ...
  5. Blu-ray Review: "Dead of Alive 2: Birds" (2000)

    Two contract killers cross paths on the same job and realize they are childhood friends. Together they take a break from killing and visit the small island they once called home. After reflecting on their past lives they decide to team up and use their talents in killing for good... upsetting the crime syndicates they used to work for.

    This film is far sillier than the first, with special effects that make this have almost science fiction qualities (which were absent from part one ...
