(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  01/05/2017 9:39 PM EDT
In the early 1900's, the aristocracy of this country were ashamed of their physically and mentally ill children.  They created secret rooms in their homes to hide away their less than perfect offspring, never allowing them to see the outside nor interact with other people.  These rooms were called the disappointments room and they we...

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 EDT
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 ...

The Dressmaker   The Dressmaker Blu-ray Review
(Jennifer Broderick)  12/26/2016 9:33 PM EDT
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...

Hollywood is full of real life stories of the husband running off with the nanny, or having an affair, and there have been several movies made similarly.  In fact, there have been movies made where the nanny becomes obsessed with the husband and it didn't end well for the nanny.  Screen Gems and Sony decided to put a little spin...

31 Blu-ray Review
31   31 Blu-ray Review
(Nathan M Rose)  12/20/2016 12:23 PM EDT
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...

Family Guy DVD Review
The Complete Fourteenth Season   Family Guy DVD Review
(Maureen Buccellato)  12/19/2016 11:10 AM EDT
Seth MacFaralane's Family Guy has seen a monumental amount of success. This show, as a whole, is beyond clever and bordering on genius. Some may think that my use of that word is a bit much, but I disagree. The intelligent and funny scripts intertwined with hysterical cutaways are what truly makes this show stand out among other adult-oriented ... Read More

Hellraiser Blu-ray Review
Hellraiser: The Scarlet Box Limited Edition Trilogy   Hellraiser Blu-ray Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  12/19/2016 10:28 AM EDT
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 ...
