Midnight (1982) Review {by Tim Walker}

The film begins with 17 year old Nancy running away from home after her drunken lecherous stepfather, Bert, tries to assault her. Bert is very well played by the excellent and sadly missed Lawrence Tierney, who puts in a great performance here. Nancy decides that the only person she can turn to is her sister in California, so she begins to hitchhike there. Eventually she is … Continue reading Midnight (1982) Review {by Tim Walker}

Nekromantik (1988) Limited Edition Blu-ray (Arrow Video) Review

Directed by German director Jörg Buttgereit (The Death King), Nekromantik is one of those cult-horror titles that has a reputation about it. A film that kids might pass under tables back in the early 90’s, feeling like they were in possession of some sort of relic, a relic that they shouldn’t have had access to. Gory, offensively sleazy and shocking; words that follow the film … Continue reading Nekromantik (1988) Limited Edition Blu-ray (Arrow Video) Review

Based on a novel by Edward Levy, and with a screenplay penned by Tom Holland (Child’s Play, Fright Night), director Phillipe Mora (Howling II) made a film that has been slammed by critics since its release, but it does have its fans.

The Incredible Melting Man (1977) Review (Arrow Video Blu-ray)

William Sachs (Galaxina) wrote and directed this, a story of an astronaut, who after a mishap in space, comes back to earth and finds that he has a skin condition. Well, by skin condition I mean… his skin is melting from his body. It blends elements of science-fiction and horror with a detective-style hunt that feels like a dated investigative show from the 70’s. Not … Continue reading The Incredible Melting Man (1977) Review (Arrow Video Blu-ray)
