Some of the best horror movies take place in remote locations cut off from civilization.  Just from its title, you know The Cabin in the Woods is that kind of movie - at least it seems so from the onset. From the brain child of Joss Whedon (Firefly) and Drew Goddard (DareDevil), the movie chronicles five college students wh... Read More

In 1982, Harrison Ford was running high on the successes of Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark when he decided to star in Ridley Scott's (The Martian) movie Blade Runner.  While not initially a box office success, it became a cult classic with legions of loyal followers worldwide.  With the technological advanc...

At end of season three of The Originals, we saw the Mikaelson their entire world had been torn about.

A death pool is when a group of people will get together and bet on who will die first. This concept was made extremely famous and notable in the 2016 movie Deadpool where bar patrons would bet on which of them would die first.  Whoever wins gets the cash.  Now imagine that concept among a group of friends who choose to bet on which celeb...

Warner Premiere, in conjunction with DC Comics, brings us back into the 1970's with an adult-ish type Batman movie. Despite the recommendation for ages 13 and older, I would definitely know your child before letting them watch this.  Many things are implied, but it doesn't take much imagination to figure out what is going on, which is a defini...

Disney animation has had a long and storied past.  From the original classics like Cinderella and Bambi to the newest film, Moana, Disney has produced exceptional movies with soundtracks that touch our lives.  For many years, there seemed to be a lull in Disney films but all that changed in 1989 with&nbs...

A Ronin is described as a wandering samurai in feudal Japan who had no lord or master.  They frequently became mercenaries who killed others for money or who did jobs for hire that other people wouldn't consider attempting.  In 1998, Robert De Niro (Raging Bull) starred in a film called Ronin, however, there were no traditional Samurai in...

There are always "nanny horror stories" in the news.  Babysitters who abuse their charges, steal things, etc. and in 1992 movies took it to another level with the story of a nanny our for revenge in The Hand That Rocks the Cradle starring Rebecca De Mornay (Risky Business).  Twenty-five years later we have another tale...

Geoffrey Chaucer is attributed with coining the phrase "All good things must come to an end" and with Black Sails, that is sadly true. Starz aired its fourth and final season- of this epic story this past season and The Complete Fourth Season is available on Blu-ray for purchase.Much aligned with Starz' penchant for airing wonderfully enj...

The Walking Dead: The Complete Seventh Season   The Walking Dead Blu-ray Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  08/28/2017 10:08 AM EDT
George A. Romero was not only the creator of the Zombie Horror genre, he was the inspiration for Kirkman's The Walking Dead series. To ignore George's impact on the horror genre at large, as well as the Zombie sub-genre, is doing him a great disservice. He may not have been a fan of this series and he even said The Walking Dead was "a soap ope... Read More
