Double Film Review: LEATHERFACE and JIGSAW…aka First remakes, now Useless Sequels (2018)

Apr 4, 2018

As an unofficial follow-up to my super-official series of commentary relating to remakes, I will be talking about the never-ending string of sequels in the horror world. I recently watched Leatherface and Jigsaw, despite the numerous online complaints about both films. Luckily enough, I don’t care about other peoples’ opinions. I tell all of my...

I love Arrow Video’s dedication to classic fringe genres. They are one of the top choices when it comes to “The Criterion Collection of Cult Collecting”. As with The Criterion Collection, I also have to wait for their sales before I can afford the majority of the upgrades my collection craves. With less than a week left in this year’s...

This new venture into action filmmaking is an interesting move. While it isn’t...

Screening for the first time outside of Japan at Fantasia 2017 this entirely stop motion animated film is a maniacally surreal trip into the future. Expanded from a 2013 short of the same name, JUNK HEAD is set...

Atsushi Muroga directed this weird ass zombie movie almost twenty years ago now. As far as Japanese horror goes, it’s average, as far as zombie films, it’s average, and compared to other Unearthed releases it is just kinda bland.  It has a very standard zombie story-line. It deals with a group of people getting caught. They need to survive. Some of...

Being one of the most well-known specialists for classic and cult revivals of rarities, oddities and DTV goodies from back-in-the-day, Scream Factory has never been an outfit that disappoints. Prime example: the TLC they lavished on their Blu-Ray release for the freshman outing of one Rowdy Herrington.  Rowdy’s name is one you may recall being associated with...
