  • “JAWS” Sequels Officially Slated for Blu-ray!

    ,

    Let’s be frank here: there’s no JAWS sequel that’s anywhere near the original masterpiece in terms of quality, and we’re not going to be the ones to argue that. However, the somewhat complicated relationship between horror fans and the JAWS sequels is one worth examining, especially considering how its evolved over the years. JAWS 2 is a particularly underrated film, JAWS 3 shouldn’t be completely written-off in spite of its flaws, and JAWS: THE REVENGE is a pretty terrible film horror fans keep going back to no matter how many times it hurts us. And if you’re a fan of the JAWS franchise as a whole, we’ve got some good news as Universal has officially (and finally) slated all three JAWS sequels for Blu-ray!

  • “HARDCORE HENRY” (Movie Review)

    ,,,

    HARDCORE HENRY was originally called just HARDCORE, the title change presumably effected lest anyone mistake it for pornography. Yet that association is entirely appropriate; the movie is a soulless, pointless glorification of the taking of human life, to the point where it makes you wonder why you ever enjoyed violent movies.

  • Scream Factory Reveals Features, Release Date for 2-Disc “RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD” Blu-ray!

    ,

    An ’80s zombie movie that features bumbling supply warehouse employees, punk rock teenagers, a selfless coroner, a nude striptease, meta-humor, buckets of blood and a skeletal corpse kept together by corroded flesh; there simply isn’t anything like RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD. While the film remains a fan favorite for many, who’ve collected posters, soundtracks and any home video release available, some were unsure if Scream Factory’s upcoming RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD Blu-ray would be worth double dipping on the existing Blu release. Of course, Scream Factory put all worries to bed earlier today, as they’ve announced the full contents and cover art for their RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD HD reissue!

EVIL DEAD this fall, cementing in a Halloween week premiere date and unleashing the first teaser for the upcoming season!

  • Deaditorial: Negan, The Governor and “THE WALKING DEAD”‘s Villain Problem

    ,,

    THE WALKING DEAD set the stage for perhaps one of the most devastating episodes of horror television to date. Maggie, one of the most sympathetic characters of the show, was near death, with a pregnancy complication jeopardizing the lives of herself and her unborn child. The otherwise confident, selfless leader that is Rick Grimes was left a sweaty, shaken mess, humbled and emotionally compromised by an underestimated force. And almost every character had a “two days ‘till retirement” moment that would make their death bittersweet: Eugene’s Map, Abraham and Sascha’s decision to settle down, Carl’s armory chat with Enid, etc.
