Howl, a Train Ride to Hell

HOWL boxart

 

As horror films go, Howl does an above average job of scarring the pants off of its audience. Gross, ghastly and eerie, the film has moments when even the most hardened thriller fan will jump. The Blu-ray has excellent quality so even the night scenes where most of the film takes place are nicely visible, easy to identify and delightfully sinister. Topping it off, the make-up and costume creators are on their mark with some very ghoulish characters. Read more

Survivor, A Cat and Mouse thriller

SURVIVOR boxart PING

 

The exciting thriller Survivor now on Blu-ray and DVD takes audiences on a wild ride through the streets of London. Starring Milla Jovovich as the hunted, Survivor has a good storyline, a solid well known supporting cast and able direction. While most of the film has edge of your seat action, the story may give you a hint of déjà vu if you have seen the movie SALT. That said the chase scenes in Survivor combined with Jovovich’s intensity are well worth the watch. Read more

Sublime cinematography throughout creates a festive atmosphere for this war of the delectable foods. You don’t have to be a romantic to appreciate the film however, just sit back and plunk the Blu-ray into your player and enjoy the feast of sight and sound (if only Blu-ray’s could add taste and smell to the home video experience).

“Holliston” Wacky and Weird

HOLLISTON boxart 1

 

Like all cable series it takes getting used to, and Holliston is certainly no exception. Having said this however, I found the second season 10 episode series now on Blu-ray/DVD to be very likable, grotesquely funny, wacky and even good-humored.  The uplifting cast puts on a good show keeping their characters continuously illogical and hip with stories that remind me of many sitcoms, including “The Big Bang Theory” (but sexier).

“Odd Thomas” A Supernatural Thriller

Odd Thomas BOXART 1

 

How this gem slipped through the cracks at a local theater I’ll never know because Odd Thomas is a mystery thriller that entertains, big time. If you like movies with a lot of excitement this film has it all, a good story by writer Dean Koontz, fine acting that includes Anton Yelchin and director of The Mummy Stephen Sommers.  Grab a copy, plop down in front of your man cave big screen, open your favorite refreshment and press play! Oh, and don’t be afraid to let your cave women join you for this one, especially for the supernatural twister of a thrill-ride.

bigass spider BOX ART

 

Now on Blu-ray and DVD Big Ass Spider takes you back to the era where insects, dinosaurs, lizards and Jungle beasts were all the horror rage.  Not a lot of that survived over the years except for the Japanese fable Godzilla that will be released May of this year.  With this creature film however, the insect horror genre gets a face lift and a shot of energy from modern day CGI special effects, very good likeable characters and a nice direction job by Mike Mendez.  If you like your horror that comes at you out of the crevices and strikes with a web of terror, then run out and grab a Big Ass Spider.
