The Changeling – Peter Medak (Second Sight)

It must have been three decades or so since I last saw 1980 movie The Changeling but memories had never really left from this one and all came flooding back when catching up on its Blu-Ray debut via Second Sight…. Continue Reading →

The Amityville Horror – Stuart Rosenberg (Second Sight)

I guess if you went out Family Fortune’s style and asked the average person on the street to name a haunted house it wouldn’t be long before Amityville popped up. The name is embedded in popular culture, due firstly to… Continue Reading →

The Entity – Sidney J. Furie (Eureka)

Growing up in the 70’s and 80’s with a really unhealthy fascination in the supernatural; ghosts, hauntings and things that generally made very loud bumps in the night, meant being really caught between a rock and a hard place. It… Continue Reading →

Stigmata – Rupert Wainwright (Eureka)

I have fond memories of this as it was actually one of the first of those new-fangled DVD’s I remember picking up. No doubt I was late to the game as I didn’t want to let go of those lovely… Continue Reading →

Baskin – Can Evrenol (Vertigo Films)

Turkish horror films, you don’t get many of them to the pound, certainly not as far as those that get picked up by the international market are concerned. The country is known for making their own ‘copies’ of well-known big… Continue Reading →

Scarecrows – William Wesley (88 Films)

Number 16 in the 88 Films “Slasher Classics Collection” and you can tell that I’m not the biggest fan of the sub-genre as it’s only the 4th I have picked up. The other 3 are all former video nasties and… Continue Reading →

Visions – Kevin Greutert (Lionsgate)

A horror film centred around wine! Well count us in for a bit of a scare and a bottle or two of cheeky red then. It’s increasingly de rigueur for anyone a bit famous especially in the music world to… Continue Reading →

The Premonition – Robert Allen Schnitzer (Arrow)

Concluding Arrow’s American Horror Project box set we have another slice of strange nightmarish 70’s hysteria ‘The Premonition’ directed by Robert Allen Schnitzer in 1976. Naturally there are plenty of other films with this title and before giving it a… Continue Reading →

Evilspeak – Eric Weston (88 Films)

I know it seems like Arrow central over here but they do send us review stuff in of the films that I love. They are not alone in releasing the classics of old and getting former video nasties through the… Continue Reading →

The Black Cat – Lucio Fulci (Arrow)

Remember the time of the double bill at the cinema? Well Arrow no doubt do and have released this in a two film package along with Sergio Martino’s Your Vice Is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key… Continue Reading →

Blind Woman’s Curse – Teruo Ishii (Arrow)

To say Teruo Ishii was a prolific Japanese filmmaker would be one hell of an understatement. Helming over 90 features between 1957 and 2001 the chances are even if you are not aware of him you may well have clashed… Continue Reading →

Re-cycle – The Pang Brothers (Cine Du Monde)

Want to see a scary movie? Well let’s face it there simply are not many that are genuinely frightening in the supernatural sense around anymore. Back when the likes of this writer was young, movies did have the scope to… Continue Reading →
