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 […]

The Last House On The Left: Unrated Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray Review)

‘Scream 4’ Stabs Its Meta Soul In The Face

I had a chance to watch the opening of Scream once I got home, after watching this third sequel.  I think those 10 minutes may be the best thing that director Wes Craven has ever done.  The sequence has a lot of fun playing with convention, ratcheting up the tension, and then paying off in […]

Scream 3 (Blu-ray Review)

Gale, Dewey, Cotton, and Sidney have survived both the Woodsboro massacre and the murders at Sidney’s college but now face another killer yet again.  While I really enjoyed the writing in Scream and Scream 2, it is a tragedy that Scream 3 was not written by Kevin Williamson since the quality dropped in this one.
