    With the insane amount of buzz surrounding the release of Stephen King's funny little clown film (gonna have to give me a minute - the name escapes me), it's about time that one of his other adaptations gets shown a little love, isn't it? Well say hello to The Children Of The Corn, and thanks to the group over at Arrow Films and their magical powers of restoration, this classic from 1984 has the chance to flex its muscles once again.

  2. Blu-ray Review: "The Dead Next Door" (1989)

    Zombies are everywhere. So who are you going to call? The Zombie Squad! These lucky paramilitary units track down and kill zombies so we can live safely. Unfortunately, the biggest hazard of the job isn't death -- it's undeath.

    The creation of the film is just as interesting as the film itself. For example, producer and casting director Jolie Jackunas came on board early because she and Bookwalter had a mutual friend in Sam Raimi. Exactly how Bookwalter knew Raimi remains unclear, ...

    A journalist (Tomas Milian) and a morally-suspect young woman (Barbara Bouchet) try to solve a series of child killings in a remote southern Italian town that is rife with superstition and distrust of outsiders.

    The script was constructed by a handful of writers, including Gianfranco Clerici, who is probably best known for his controversial "Cannibal Holocaust". This film in many ways is also controversial. Children are shown both as murder victims (which is taboo) and as ...
  5. Blu-ray Review: "The Legend of the Holy Drinker" (1988)

    A drunken homeless man (Rutger Hauer) in Paris is lent 200 francs by a stranger (Anthony Quayle) as long as he promises to repay it to a local church when he can afford to; the film depicts the man's constant frustrations as he attempts to do so.

    This project started when producer Roberto Cicutto (Hotel Rwanda) bought the rights to Roth's book of the same name. A few directors were approached and turned the film down because the plot was too "thin" and "vague". ...
