The 1980s and early 1990s saw a growth in action films in the United States; a trend that seems to have continued well into recent years.  Stars like Arnold Schwarzenegger (The Terminator), Sylvester Stallone (Rocky, Rambo) and Bruce Willis (Die Hard) were becoming household names.  Car chases, gunfights, and hand to hand combat were the ...

PG-13 horror movies, always conjure up images of milquetoast monsters, bloodless kill- scenes, and plots which cater to an, at best, immature audience. I know this seems like a seriously gross generalization, and perhaps it is a tad judgmental, but I have been to too many of them to think otherwise. Or have I! This is not the case with Scary S...

In the 1980s the United States was engrossed in a couple of wars – The Cold War and the War on Drugs.  Arnold Schwarzenegger (Terminator) was also one of the biggest action stars in movies.  It was only natural to combine those two ideas to make a film starring "Arnie"  and that is exactly what TriStar Pictures did in...

John Landis (Coming to America, Michael Jackson's Thriller) has created many, what most people would term, "classic" films. Many of them, like Trading Places, or The Blues Brothers, to name a few, were comedies but one, in particular, has stuck with Horror film lovers and for good reason. An American Werewolf in London is high on the...

Here's another film reimagining from the Disney vault of golden animation, and this one ‘Rocks'.
