Feral (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 9th, 2018 - Blu-ray and DVD

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 (1988)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 9th, 2018 - Blu-ray and DVD

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.

Scream for Help (1984)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 26th, 2018 - Blu-ray and DVD

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.

Ocean’s Eight (2018) (4K Ultra HD)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 26th, 2018 - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and DVD

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 (1988) – Collector’s Edition

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 10th, 2018 - Blu-ray and DVD

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.

Pyewacket (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 10th, 2018 - Blu-ray and DVD

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.

Lowlife (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 10th, 2018 - Blu-ray and DVD

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.

Marrowbone (2017) (4K Ultra HD)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 7th, 2018 - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and DVD

Marrowbone is a spellbinding gothic drama overflowing in suspense, dread, pathos, romance and honest to goodness human sentiment. It is a sensational piece of genre subterfuge, the narrative an increasingly byzantine maze overflowing in deft twists and turns.

Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (2011) (4K Ultra HD)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 3rd, 2018 - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and DVD

Having now re-watched all five of the Mission: Impossible films, I can say definitively that Ghost Protocol is my favorite in the series up to this point.
