“Some of this is legend, but at least this much is fact – when rioting citizens of France destroyed the Bastille, they discovered within its records this mysterious entry: Prisoner # 64389000 – The Man in the Iron Mask…”
As for Scream! Factory’s Blu-ray presentation, this is one “collector’s edition” that more than lives up to the designation. Featuring an excellent new transfer and a solid collection of extras, fans of the film should definitely consider adding this release to their personal library.
Thanks to Scout Taylor-Compton’s solid performance, cinematographer Christos C. Bitsakos’ suitably creepy visuals and Elia Cmiral’s strong score, Mark H. Young’s Feral is hardly a waste of time. It just doesn’t do enough original or new to be memorable, and as such ends up being just another low budget zombie infection thriller seemingly made to fill up streaming service horror queues and little of anything else.
The Seventh Sign has had a remarkably long shelf life and it always amazes me the number of people who pop out of the woodwork and comment how much they love it. Personally, I don’t get it.
The insanity of Scream for Help cannot be undersold. Michael Winner’s head-scratching teenage coming-of-age slasher film is a skuzzy Nancy Drew mystery overflowing in easygoing sleaze. It’s freakishly entertaining, likely for all of the wrong reasons, and I’m sort of flabbergasted I’ve never watched this wonderfully schlocky misfire until now.
In many ways Ocean’s Eight is slowly climbing up my list of 2018 favorites. I just really love watching it, the joy it makes me feel when it comes to an end almost indescribable.
Return of the Living Dead Part II isn’t good…However, Scream! Factory’s Blu-ray presentation, which restores almost all of the film’s original audio, features a superb visual presentation and comes loaded with a bevy of incredible bonus features, is a real gem for fans of the series.
While not quite as terrifyingly successful as 2014’s Backcountry, writer/director Adam MacDonald’s supernatural coming of age shocker Pyewacket is still an uncomforting psychological thriller that features a sensational climax and a strong performance from rising star Nicole Muñoz.
Ryan Prows does a terrific job crafting something engaging, clever and most of all entertaining with his multipart crime comedy-thriller Lowlife, his movie a violently energetic celebration that’s difficult to resist.
