  1. Blu-ray Review: "Phantasm" (1979)

    A teenage boy (Michael Baldwin) stumbles upon a plot by a very tall mortuary worker (Angus Scrimm) to steal dead bodies and turn them into midget slaves for an alien world. With the help of his older brother (Bill Thornberry), the boy hopes to cut the tall man down to size.

    Many years later, Don Coscarelli is now seen as a master of horror and Angus Scrimm somewhat of a horror icon (though to a lesser degree than, say, Robert Englund). While the plot I have outlined above may sound ...

    Now I'll be the first to admit with a whole heart that there's nothing more fun than sitting back, cracking a cold one, and settling in with a horror flick that only asks that you shut your mind off in order to enjoy it - complete blank mentation. Now, on the other hand, there remains a certain amount of relative celebration to be had when you sink your skull into a film, and can decipher it right up until the very end - enter the Abattoir.
  4. Blu-ray Review: "The Driller Killer" (1979)

    An artist slowly goes insane while struggling to pay his bills, work on his paintings, and care for his two female roommates, which leads him taking to the streets of New York after dark and randomly killing derelicts with a power drill.

    This is the first great film of director Abel Ferrara, and with him he brings long-time collaborators writer Nicholas St. John and cinematographer Ken Kelsch. Ferrara somehow makes a very low-budget film seem almost as good as a studio film. Perhaps ...

    We're slowly attacking this "possession" topic with all the speed of a downhill rolling snowball on methamphetamines - the only other sub-genre with as much forward momentum would be the "zombie" premise and GOD ONLY KNOWS how many of those flicks we've been subject to over the past 5 years or so. In any event, my latest assignment was to tackle Scott B. Hansen's "exorcism gone awry" feature, The Possession Experiment, and after a breakneck speed-like ...
