Invaders From Mars (Blu-ray Review)

I love the directors that the folks at Scream Factory choose to follow and try to release nice editions of their works.  Unappreciated or worthy of their unfavorable status, directors with names’ films are ones that are continually studied and collected no matter what.  Tobe Hooper’s filmography is getting some of its more unappreciated works […]

Tobe Hooper’s INVADERS FROM MARS Makes Its Blu-ray Debut April 7th!

This is exciting.  I’m really loving that Scream Factory is making efforts in giving attention to the works of some of the great horror directors and figures of years’ past.  We know they are doing their best to put out every John Carpenter film ever made, but here’s another one from Tobe Hooper.  Previously, they’ve […]

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre: 40th Anniversary Edition – Single Disc (Blu-ray Review)

Bubba Sawyer (or you may refer to him as Leatherface) has turned 40 years old ladies and gents.  It was that long ago that Tobe Hooper’s grimy, dark horror film about a group of unlucky youths traveling through Texas shocked and mortified audiences forever.  For the 40th anniversary of course we have to get another […]

Celebrate The Sawyer Family’s 40th Family Reunion With THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE 40th Anniversary BLACK MARIA Edition!

While I’m excited about this new Texas Chain Saw Massacre release, its very bittersweet this week following news of the passing of the film’s star Marilyn Burns.  You will get to see her performance as you never have before with this stunning new 4K remaster of the film.  It’s been making the rounds, but will […]

Brandon’s Bodacious TOP 10 Blu-rays Of 2013!

It’s my turn!  No need for a preamble as to what goes into the generalities of crafting these Top 10 lists as the gents before me all did a fine job of explaining.  2012 provided what seemed like all the remaining “Must Have” box sets, leaving 2013 seeming kind of empty handed on the surface.  […]

Clips From The Upcoming Body Bags – Collector’s Edition

Scream Factory has provided us with a load of clips for their upcoming release of John Carpenter’s Body Bags.  I’ve already reviewed the film HERE.  The horror anthology brings plenty of laughs, scares and disturbing stuff.  Fun for the whole family!  It’s also a chance to catch Carpenter himself in rare form.  He hams it […]

John Carpenter’s Body Bags – Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray Review)

John Carpenter’s Body Bags is a an oft forgotten film of his and horror anthology.  It was a Showtime movie back in 1993, back when it wasn’t as “cool” to have an original idea on Showtime (Showtime did do Psycho IV as well).  In Carpenter’s mind, this was a one shot.  But Showtime wanted this […]

Scream Factory continues to roll out and lay claim to King Of Jon Carpenter Blu-rays this November.  They will be releasing what I can easily say will be a superior version of his cult classic Assault On Precinct 13 November 19 (this has already been released before through a different distributor).  The week prior, they […]

Texas Chainsaw (Blu-ray Review)

Well, whether you wanted it or not, you got another Texas Chainsaw “Massacre” film.  Many say this was to erase the puddle of mud that was Michael Bay’s bastardized attempt back in 2003, but quite honestly…I liked that one, Milo and all.  So what’s this latest incarnation about?  Good question!  And I’m really glad you […]

Robert Englund and his ‘Hollywood Monster’

Horror films never really did much for me.  The Friday the 13th franchise used to scare the bejeezus out of me when I was a kid, but the older I got, the more bored I got with those films.  I never did see the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre in its entirety and the more recent […]
