‘Don’t Breathe’, Just Watch (Movie Review)

Stripped down to the basics, Don’t Breathe is a mean and lean thriller, focused entirely on things literally going bump in the night. Director Fede Alvarez follows up his solid Evil Dead remake with a frightful home invasion tale where the home owner quickly turns the tables on the robbers. The results allow for edge-of-your-seat […]

In The Blood (Blu-ray Review)

There is only so much to say about movies like In The Blood.  It is a thriller that had minimal exposure upon its initial release and will live in the realm of streaming and cheap Blu-ray bins.  That said, as far as these fairly straight-forward action vehicles for lower-profile stars and fun character actors go, […]

Pawn (Blu-ray Review)

Twisting and turning its way onto Blu-ray is Anchor Bay’s Pawn.  It’s a film that lives on the plot twist, double cross and connectivity between characters.  With so many new revelations and turns through the film’s runtime, this film should be a mess.  However, it’s not clumsily handled, not expertly either, but well enough to […]
