Scream Queens: The Complete First Season (DVD Review)

Because writer/director/producer Ryan Murphy was not busy enough with American Horror Story and American Crime Story, he also decided to follow up Fox’s Glee with another over-the-top series that takes on the horror genre to a lighter degree with Scream Queens. Packed with both veteran and younger stars, the concept is fun enough, with this […]

My Girl (Blu-ray Review)

Watching My Girl brought back a lot of fond memories of the 1991 coming-of-age comedy-drama. It is a film that I have always been a fan of, but not one I have seen in quite some time. Seeing the film again, it holds up very well, as the story is simple enough, but quite effective […]

Brian White Ranks His Top 3 Horror Films of All-Time Plus 1!

Growing up as a child in the early 80s I fell in love with the old black-and-white Universal Monsters films that my dad would leave playing carelessly on the tube.  For some reason, even as a young child, I just wasn’t scared of Lon Chaney as the Wolf Man or Boris Karloff as Frankenstein.  Instead, […]

Does anybody own the old Halloween: H20 DVD that came out back in 1998?  You know, the one that was set in 4:3 Letterbox and included the worthless bonus features of ‘Trivia’ and a Creed music video?  On the back of that box it said there was a commentary with Jamie Lee Curtis and Steve Miner. […]

Halloween 35th Anniversary Blu-ray Honored At 40th Annual Saturn Awards

The Saturn Awards sure knows how to pick ’em as we both agree the Halloween 35th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray from last year was one of the year’s  best.  It was among my personal #1 of 2013 (I picked all John Carpenter releases and tied them together).  Saturn maybe should have waited a year for the […]

Halloween – 35th Anniversary Edition (Blu-ray Review)

Anchor Bay has released John Carpenter’s Halloween a lot of times.  Each time they manage to successfully add just one ounce of something different that the fan just HAS to dip in again.  Personally, I’ve owned this film countless times, as it’s my favorite film.  I remember when Anchor Bay released a two VHS tape […]
