Little Monsters   Little Monsters Blu-ray Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  9/29/2020 3:32 PM EST

Shivers   Shivers Blu-ray Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  9/24/2020 8:54 PM EST
David Cronenberg, without hyperbole, is one of the greatest genre movie directors.

However, no one director/scree... Read More

Director Tim Burton is known for having a unique and rather "dark" perspective on storytelling.  His films, including Edward Scissorhands, Corpse Bride, and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, explore human nature and the demon inside us all generally in a rather humorous and lighthearted way.  An excellent example o...
