In 1999 The Blair Witch Project changed the face of horror movies and became an instant classic. With it's "shaky cam", documentary style filmmaking it opened up a new way of looking at horror.  It intrigued us and fascinated us and scared the living daylights out of us.  In 2016 Lionsgate reimagined the film releasing Blair...

Snowden Blu-ray Review
Snowden   Snowden Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  12/27/2016 9:53 AM EST
Edward Snowden has been called many things... patriot, traitor, whistle-blower, etc.  Some feel what he did was necessary in order to keep our government in check, while others thought he did irrevocable damage to our national security.  Regardless of your feelings, there is no doubt he is a brave and polarizing figure.  Based on an ...

(Jennifer Broderick)  12/26/2016 9:33 PM EST
There are some stories of the past that are just epic. They tell a story,  they involve you in their character's life to the point where you are invested in the outcome and you don't even know its happening until the movie is over.  Finally, you let out your breath that you didn't even know you were holding.  In this vein...

Rob Zombie is synonymous with all things horror. Between his films, music, name and even his personal style, there doesn't seem to be a side of him that doesn't delve into the macabre.  Zombie has released eight films, all horror, and the latest of these releases is 31.This movie was a bit of a change for Zombie as it actually used cro...

Hellraiser: The Scarlet Box Limited Edition Trilogy   Hellraiser Blu-ray Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  12/19/2016 10:28 AM EST
I'm not much of a gambling man but I'd take the safe bet and say that if you're reading this review, you're a Clive Barker/Hellraiser fan.  I will even go further and venture a guess, you're either debating the purchase of the Scarlet Box or you have already taken the plunge and you want to see what our thoughts are on the ...

Ben-Hur   Ben-Hur Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  12/12/2016 9:17 PM EST
Ben-Hur – the title alone conjures up images of excellence in literature and filmmaking.  In 1880, the novel was published with modest success originally but became more popular when it was recommended reading by Clergy.  Then, in 1925, it was made into a silent film and also became successful.  In 1959, it was once again reima...
