Halloween Love

Blu-ray and DVD

Burial Ground

Burial Ground (1981) could not get more Italian if it tried. I recently revisited the film by watching Severin’s remastered Blu-ray of the classic, and it is exactly how I remember, though it looks far better than it did on the VHS tape I originally watched it on decades ago. If you have not seen

Banana Splat

As a kid I loved watching the reruns of The Banana Splits. It was a goofy show filled with nonsense and “hilarious” sound effects, but for some reason I was into it. I even collected (and still do) the comic books. When I heard a movie was coming out, I was baffled. It did not

The Crow

25 years ago, The Crow was released. I saw it then, a few more times over the years on VHS, DVD, and now, 25 years later, I’ve just seen it on Blu-ray, with better picture and sound than I’d ever seen it before. Still just as incredibly beautiful and tragic, and I’ve only noticed more

First Time Watch of Suspiria (1977 & 2018)

I generally don’t subscribe to the idea of comparing two things in the context of, for example, who played The Joker better, Jack Nicholson or Heath Ledger? Because, I can enjoy them both greatly, but separately, as their own thing, their own interpretations. That’s how I feel about The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and its remake,

Pre-order the WNUF Halloween Special Sequel Now!

If you never saw the first WNUF Halloween Special, remedy that immediately (or we’ll revoke your Halloween fan card): Watch on Amazon (it was available on Netflix and Shudder previously, but Amazon is the easiest remaining option now) Then, after you finish watching it and inevitably love it, or if you were already a fan

Ash vs Evil Dead Review + Giveaway

How strange it is to be discussing Ash vs Evil Dead in retrospect, something that was so surreal to have ever existed in the first place. After the show ended, I already shared my thoughts pretty thoroughly. The show itself was amazing, from beginning to end, but my biggest take-away personally, was that I really

Let’s Purge!

Wow, am I out of the loop. I had only seen the first one, The Purge (2013), and now I’ve just watched the prequel, The First Purge (2018), but I did not realize how much of a horror franchise it had become: The Purge (2013) The Purge: Anarchy (2014) The Purge: Election Year (2016) The

Vestron Video Collector’s Series: The Unholy

It’s rare that I’ll write about an old cult movie newly released on Blu-ray that I hadn’t originally seen in the past. However, the new release of The Unholy in the Vestron Video Collector’s Series is the first time I recall ever seeing the movie. I liked it, but wanted to love it. It came

House Wants You!

House House is yet another cult horror movie from the vault that I’m delighted, but surprised to see get the royal Blu-ray treatment. It’s an absolute gem of a film and one of my favorites. I feel like Scream Factory really paved the way to show movie studios that it was worth the time and

Vestron Video Collector’s Series: Wishmaster

If ever there were a movie that you can call capital “H” Horror, it’s definitely when it’s directed by a special effects guy and hardcore horror fan. Robert Kurtzman (the “K” from KNB), directed Wishmaster with a lot of love back in ’97. Being a horror fan, I of course always loved the movie because
