When I was a kid I was heavily into punk rock. I listened to it, I dressed the part, I embraced the culture so to speak. I was an avid film fan back then as well, and I could never get over the lack of Punk Films. Sure you had Repo-Man, Sid & Nancy, and Decline of the Western Civilization but not much else. Then one day at the video store I picked up Suburbia. I was into Corman stuff and saw he was the producer. I recognized Penelope Spheeris’s name from Decline, and with the cover featuring a group of punkers I picked it up. It became a favorite of mine. I have the soundtrack, and in fact listened to it just a few months ago. I had not watched the film in quiet some time so when I got the Shout Select Blu-ray a few hours ago I popped it right on.
The plot is a fairly standard teenagers in crisis plot from the 80’s but with a much darker tone. I mean it opens with a girl hitchhiking getting picked up by a mom and her kid, then like 4min later the kid is killed by a rabid dog. We cut to another punker named Evan. He comes from a broken home with a drunk mom and heads out one night to a D.I concert. He meets up with a few other punks who offer him a place to stay. Well place may be a weird word, it’s an old abandon house that they basically just squat at. They call it the “TR House” T.R. standing for The Rejected. They pick up another kid and then as is customary for all that live there, they get TR branded onto them. They wander around at night stealing food from open garages and go to punk shows. There way of life does not really sit well with the locals who have a neighborhood watch called Citizens Against Crime. They decide they want to run the punks out, and even try framing them for some random crimes.
Sexual assault, suicide, murder, this film is heavy. Really heavy. So heavy watching it now as an adult it’s pretty depressing. Don’t get me wrong it a good film, and incredibly well made. A little known fact is that actually punk kids, and members of bands played all the main parts. Spheeris wanted it to be as authentic as possible and thought using real kids instead of actors would give it a better sense of realism, and she was correct. It was even filmed in an old run down area in California in drug houses that people actually squatted at.
Is the film an accurate portrayal of Punks in the early 80’s? I cannot answer that. I was still a child and did not get into the punk culture until around 88, four years after this was made. I can tell you the feel and look of the concerts is accurate. In fact this film has one of my favorite soundtracks. It even has soundbites of the film spliced before the songs.
Now watching it again as an adult I can tell you it’s still a very good film. In my opinion if you have never seen this I can honestly recommend watching it. Even if the punk rock culture doesn’t interest you the gorilla style of film making is something you need to see. The film is made cheap, but it’s hard and raw and has an energy about it that I cannot explain with words. It’s a see it to believe it thing.
Shout Factory, under their Select Banner is giving this the full Blu-ray treatment. I just turned it off before I started writing this and I cannot get over how fantastic the sound is. This concerts scenes are stunning to say the least. The audio is so clear that the music just pulses from your speakers. The film transfer looks good as well as all the scenes are crisp and vibrant. Now even though this is so cleaned up don’t worry, it still has that raw look and feel to it. It even has special features.

In 1997 Dario Argento directed Suspiria. It became a horror classic. The film became an instant classic among horror fans all over the world. It ranks high on many horror lists and seems to get a collector edition release every few years. The soundtrack by Goblin, like the film itself has become legendary as well. And to be completely honest I don’t share in the undying love of this film that most horror fans do. I think it’s just an ok film at best. SO when a remake was announced I didn’t jump on the hate wagon. I am still in shock that a remake was done art house style from an Italian Horror Film that aside from the hardcore horror fans is truthfully a little obscure. But I consider remakes a genre of film now so I went in with no feelings of the original what so ever.
Suspiria takes place in Germany during 1977. It focuses on Susie Bannion (Dakota Johnson) an American who is accepted to the Tanz Dance Academy. The academy is currently up in arms after one of the girls, Patricia Hingle (Chloe Grace Moretz) has disappeared. Before she vanished she left behind a journal showing the academy is actually a coven for witches. This is proven to the audience when one of the students who was Patricia’s friend attempts to leave the academy but is instead locked in a room surrounded by mirrors. As she is trapped one of the girls begins practicing a dance that causes Olga (the girl in the mirror room) to begin acting it out as well. The problem is the dance is very flailing to say the least and Olga begins smashing into all the mirrors killing her.
During all of this Susie begins winning more favor with the heads of the academy, and the coven decides to use Susie as a vessel for their leader Mother Markos.
This film, is simply put, long. Clocking in at a little over two and a half hours the film is paced very slowly. It looks good, in a trippy art house way, but it really could have been edited down. The plot is simple, yet stretched out to an absurd length. The original film clocked in at around 95min and that felt slow at times. The reason for much of the added time is due to the dance numbers. They are extremely well done, and used to symbolize witchcraft sequences, but to me it doesn’t mesh with the other horror elements of the film.
Speaking of the other elements, the film is loaded with metaphors and themes. From Motherhood, to compassion and guilt the film lays it on heavy. Just watch the special features, or read any of the many interviews and articles about the film for a full dissertation on the subjects.
One of the things I will complement is the fact that this film is a reimagining as opposed to a remake. It uses the plot points of the original film but expands upon it immensely. Argento had made a trilogy of films he called the Three Mothers Trilogy, which this film does make a reference to. The plans are of course to make a sequel to this one.
If you missed it during its theater run its now available on Blu-ray and DVD. The transfer looks great and really does the lighting and sound justice. The audio booms from the speakers during the dance sequences.
This is not a film for everyone. It’s very different, very slow, and very much an arthouse film as opposed to a horror movie. Its definitely worth watching, and I do recommend checking it out, just go in remembering it’s like nothing you have ever seen.

As werewolf films go there actually aren’t very many that I like. TO be completely honest I am not a fan of The Howling. I saw it was I was a kid and didn’t like it. After being told how nuts I was I watched it again in my 20’s, then again a few times in my 30’s. At that point I realized I was not going to change my mind. I think the fact I found the film dull was my main reason for not enjoying it. I did however enjoy some of the sequels. Primarily because they were basically insane. The most ridiculous of the bunch has to be part 3. And I mean that in a good way.
The Howling 3 takes us to Australia where we meet a young girl named Jeroba. She is a werewolf who is being molested by her stepfather. One day she has enough and runs away. She heads to the city and runs into a man named Donny. He’s an American who is casting for a horror film. He likes what he sees in here, arranges an audition, and she gets the part. It’s a werewolf film, and when she disagrees with the transformation scene she decides to tell Donny that she in fact is a werewolf. He just assumes she’s nuts but has sex with her anyways. During there intercourse her sees that her stomach has white hair all over it. This doesn’t seem to freak him.
After the movie is done filming Jeroba attends the wrap party. The party in question has strobe lights flashing about and they trigger a transformation in her. She runs out before anyone can see but gets hit by a car. She’s taken to the hospital where the doctors notice her fur, a pouch, and the fact that she is pregnant. Her family track her down and take her back to their wolf town, while this is going on another woman performing at the ballet begins to transform into a werewolf and is quickly captured. And then she just as quickly escapes. She in turn flees to the werewolf town just as Jeroba is giving birth to the half human half werewolf baby. From there is gets even more nuts as the government assembles a team to raid the town and capture the werewolves, but the werewolves can summon a ghost wolf for protection.
Now I have to warn you that this film is PG-13 so the gore in it is toned down. Don’t get me wrong there are gore scenes just a tad tamer then the series is used to. The transformation scenes look great and you get a nice handful of them. It’s the totally insane story that I dug. I mean this film manages to trace werewolves back to Tasmanian devils. What film does that? See werewolf films are usually more series in tone. This one is just plain crazy which to me is what sets it apart and makes it fun to watch.
Because of the plot the film developed a cult following over the years and now Scream Factory, who have already put out the original and part 2 are bringing out part 3. The transfer is stunning just like everything they do. The film looks great from the city scenes, to the outback, all the colors are great. The night scenes look amazing as well. The audio is crisp and Scream Factory did a great job on the special features as always.
Fans of the series will enjoy this outing just as much as the others. If you’re a fan it’s a must buy. If you have never seen it before, or like me were not a fan of the original definitely pick this one up. It’s probably the most original werewolf film you will ever see. It’s a lot of fun and I highly recommend it.

One of the most ironic things I have ever heard, movie wise is that Peter Weller by his own admission is not a fan of science fiction. I find that hilarious as he was the star of Robocop, Buckaroo Banzi, and the short lived series Odyssey 5. He was also the star of a cross between sci fi and horror in 1995’s Screamers. It’s based on the short story Second Variety. Although not a hit when it came out it grew to develop a cult following thanks to video rental and cable showings.
Screamers takes place in 2078 on the planet Sirius 6B. It’s become a wasteland after a war between the mining company that once operated there, and the former miners. The miners, and the scientists they fight alongside with create a weapon they call “Screamers” They are drone like machines that are programmed to hunt down the enemy soldiers and kill them. They let off a high pitch noise when they attack, hence the name screamers. They target enemies based off of their heartbeats. After a while the soldiers develop a device to wear that that makes their heartbeats undetectable to the Screamers.
Weller plays Joe Hendrickson, one of the commanding officers of the miner’s alliance. He is given the chance to help broker a truce and end the war as both sides have been fighting so long they are both becoming depleted. As Joe, one of his men, and a young boy they meet named David travel to the compound for the meeting they are attacked by a new form of Screamer that looks like a human.. It turns out these Screamers have evolved and are now killing everyone in their path.
The film is quite good. It’s a great blend of horror and science fiction. It has tremendous pacing that will keep you on the edge of your seat during the final act of the film. Weller is excellent as always as is Jennifer Rubin as Jessica Hansen. The cast as a whole is good and they all have great chemistry together. The film clocks in at about 110min but it never drags like a lot of science fiction films of this time. It moves along at a quick pace.
Scream Factory has acquired this title and have given it the Blu-ray treatment it so richly deserves. The transfer is fantastic. I saw this film when it came out in 1995 and I can tell you it has never looked better. Every dark scene looks crisp, and the effects, which were done on a low budget look really good as well. The audio is crisp and clear, and as it’s a Scream Factory release it’s got the usual great special features.

“You know what this is for? It for jacking off!!” that’s definitely one of my favorite lines in film history. Yelled by Charles Bronson while he’s holding a fisting device and yelling at a murder suspect. No it’s not from any of the Death Wish films, it’s from his most overlooked classic, 10 to Midnight. Made in 1983 by the fine folks at Cannon the film was panned by critics for its hard violence, nudity, and language. The film is one of the harder thrillers of its time dealing with a sexual predator.
Bronson stars are Leo Kressler a tough as nails no nonsense cop who is investigating a double homicide. In the beginning we meet a very creepy young man named Warren Stacey. He keeps hitting on a lady at work who just blows him off. He doesn’t take kindly to that so that night he follows her and her boyfriend out into the woods where they are having sex and kills both of them. Bronson and his partner are not exactly stumped as, well, he’s Bronson. He figures things out pretty quickly but Warren is an incredibly intelligent man. Committing his crimes with gloves and usually naked he’s always able to keep his prints off everything and even smart enough to establish an airtight alibi.
Bronson is still Bronson and he won’t let a crazed naked serial killer use simple red tape to get away. No, Warren does push Bronson to the edge culminating in Bronson simply breaking into his apartment and planting evidence. That however doesn’t stick and leads to the final confrontation between Bronson and Warren after Warren targets daughter.
This is one of the best cat and mouse serial killer films made. Bronson is at his best. He’s dirtier than Dirty Harry in this as Leo Kressler. I personally think it could be his best work. Sure Death Wish 3 is great fun, but Bronson shines as a cop who will break the law to bring a killer to justice. Gene Davis shines as Warren. He is one of the creepiest serial killers I’ve seen. The fact that he’s actually a good looking guy, combines with sexual predator give him a Ted Bundy quality that he plays to perfection.
The film is very hard R. the violence is graphic there are sexual situations, and lots of nudity. It rarely plays on cable and is heavily edited to the point it makes no sense on regular television. It was panned by critics when it was first released due to the graphic violence, but it was a huge rental hit. It’s developed a cult following over the years and now it is getting the Scream Factory treatment.
This is a beautify Blu-ray. The night elements of the film look fantastic. They don’t suffer from that dreaded blue tint that some transfers get. No, this is stunning in both video and audio. Scream Factory was even able to load it up with special features.

Brian De Palma has always been one of my favorite directors, Scarface and Blow Out being my two favorites. Well in 1976, right before Carrie he made a very low key under the radar film called Obsession. It’s a Hitchcock style mystery starring Cliff Robertson and John Lithgow.
Obsession is set in 1959 and focuses on Michael Courtland. His wife and daughter are kidnapped and the police come up with an idea to give the kidnappers a briefcase full of paper instead of actual cash. He agrees but things go south quickly. During the getaway the kidnappers are killed in a car crash trying to escape. Unfortunately Michael’s wife and daughter are in the car with them and perish as well.
The films picks up years later where Michael has become a shell of himself and is obsessed with his late wife. He spends all his free time at a replica of a church he had built in her honor. It reminds him of where they met when they were both in Italy. One day his real estate partner asks Michael to come with him to Italy on a business trip hoping it will cheer him up. However when they arrive Michael visits the church where he met his late wife and runs into a lady who looks exactly like her. Seeing as he’s already half insane he decides to start romancing here in the hopes of turning her into a replica of his late wife.
If that isn’t weird enough, Sandra, his now new wife is kidnapped on their wedding night and Michael is given the same ransom note he was given years prior to when his first wife was kidnapped. This leads Michael into his final decent of madness. Throw in an amazing twist ending and redemption and you have one amazing film.
The directing is top notch. De Palma can frame everything perfectly and his pacing in Obsession is nothing short of amazing. The film is fairly short, clocking in at about an hour and forty minutes but it never once slows down. Sure you get a quick stop to catch your breath but that’s in. This truly is a film that will keep you on the edge of your seat and keep you guessing what’s going to happen until the very end.
I can’t praise the score enough either. Composed by Bernard Hermann it fits the film perfectly. It adds to the tension in every sense of the word. It really sets the tone for each and every scene. It’s definitely one I recommend you pick up for your music collection.
Overlooked due primarily to the fact Carrie, also by De Palma came out the same year and was a hit at the box office Obsession is a rather obscure title in the director’s filmography. Well thanks to the fine folks at Scream Factory you can now watch it the way it was always meant to be seen, in a beautiful Blu-ray transfer. The video and audio are amazing, as are all Scream Factory titles. They even have it loaded with special features.

You know what rented better than horror movies in the 80’s? Nothing! You know why? The cover, plain and simple. If the cover looked great you rented it. I can’t tell you how many horror titles I just rented because the cover caught my eye. Sure some of them stunk, but that art work was great. I really miss it. One of the better covers was Happy Birthday to Me. It’s got a guy on it with his mouth wide opened and a terrified look on his face as a skewer of some type of kabob is going into his mouth to no doubt kill him. The tagline reads “Six of the most Bizzar Murders You Will Ever See!” I mean who wouldn’t want to watch that.
Happy Birthday to Me is the tale of Ginny Wainwright. She’s a member of an elite group at his school known as “The Top Ten” it consists of the rich and popular kids. The kind who have enemies. Ginny was involved in a horrible accident and had reconstructive brain tissue restoration. It left her with all kinds of mental issues. Now to make things worse there is a killer targeting her Top Ten clique.
It seems as though Ginny is responsible for these murders. In fact she herself even believes she is blacking out and killing her friends, but what would a horror movie be without a twist ending. And in case you’re wondering, yes, this does take place on and around Ginny’s birthday.
The murders are well done. Featuring the use of practical effects most of them still look good today. Kabob kills, stabbings, even a fireplace poker. The film does pack enough punch to make it a really well done slasher film. Some of the acting is bad, but in all honesty that only adds to the charm of this 80’s horror cult classic.
The film was well received at the box office and on home video when it was released. It’s often compared to Friday the 13th, but I’ve never seen the similarity other than it’s a slasher film. Happy Birthday to Me has enough weird and goofy elements to make it stand out. I mean the plot twists are to the point of comedy as they are so over the top.
As I stated the cover art of the film helped to make it a cult classic and now Mill Creek is giving it the Retro VHS treatment it deserves. Using the now iconic cover pic, and made to look all wrinkled and worn out this one really stands out in there collection. Featuring a horror rental sticker, and in this release case tape markings and a side number sticker this really looks like a worn out vhs tape from the rental heydays of the 80’s and 90’s.
I still enjoy the film and consider it a must see slasher film just for the ending twist alone. You add in the awesome cover art, and of course the flawless Blu-ray transfer and you have a winner. It’s probably the best cover of their set of VHS covers so far. The film still holds up, and is a must by for horror fans, collectors, and people just looking for a good little horror film.

In 1982 there were two types of genre films that were on fire. Horror, and action. And by action I mean Martial Arts. Chuck Norris was pretty popular at the time so Columbia Pictures decided to take Chuck and have him fight an unstoppable killer like say a Jason or Michael Myers. The result was Silent Rage. It’s a different film to say the least, and it has one hell of a following. Loved by action fans and horror alike. It was a big VHS rental back in the day and now Mill Creek is giving it their retro VHS cover Blu-ray release.
Chuck stars as Sherriff Dan Stevens. In the beginning he is after a total nut case named John Kirby who is in the process of killing his family. Chuck stops him of course by gunning him down. Turns out John was completely insane so he is taken to his Shrink as opposed to the emergency room for his life threatening injuries. His doctor, and another colleague have created a regeneration formula, that when injected should enhance your strength and make your cells regenerate, thus making you basically a superman who can’t be killed. They decide it’s a good idea to inject this into a homicidal maniac.
That’s not a great idea as John breaks out and begins going on a killing spree. People try to stop him but as he can’t be killed he is basically on a killing spree. In one really cool scene they attempt to stop him by injecting acid into him. That doesn’t work either. But one thing can stop him, or one man I should say, as Chuck Norris goes after him with his martial arts fury. Like the cover says “Science Created Him, now Chuck Norris Must Destroy Him"
I have to give the film credit, the horror element is really well done. John Kirby is played by Brian Libby, and he does an amazing job. He’s a very effective actor in this role and at times looks truly frightening. His mannerisms are done perfectly. Chuck is Chuck, so if you like him in one role you will like him in all his roles. In my opinion he plays the part a bit to serious, as the premise is pretty goofy. His fans loved it and the film went on to do really well at the box office. It also became a staple of VHS rentals.
Because of that Mill Creek has released it as part of their retro VHS cover Blu-rays. I have to say first and foremost even if you don’t like the movie you need to buy it for the cover art alone. It’s the original artwork that features Chuck starring off into space on the right, and another photo of him doing one of his trademark jump kicks on the right upper cover. Below him is a pair of evil eyes with a lifeline monitor going through them. Throw in the Action Thriller sticker, and some worn out designs and you have a winner.
If you’re a fan of the movie this is a must buy as the transfer is great. The video and audio scan are flawless. This is the best looking print of this film I have seen.
I really love these retro cover Blu-rays, and with Mill Creek’s low prices it’s very easy and fun to collect them all. Like I said the cover alone makes it a must own. Go out and pick this one up.

We have discussed how amazing some old VHS covers were. Usually they were based on the original film poster, which in the 80’s could sometimes be pretty elaborate. Throw in the fact that VHS boxes were simply laminated (if you were lucky) cardboard covers over time they would develop a worn look, thus adding to the appeal. One of the cooler posters was for the Sci-fi film Krull. It’s most noticeable for the “Beast” that is in the background. Mill Creek has picked this title as part of their Blu-ray’s with VHS cover packaging.
Krull is actually a planet. It gets attacked by “The Beast” and his army in his Black Fortress spaceship. As this attack is happening Prince Colwyn and Princess Lyssa plan to marry, and combine their army’s in hopes of stopping the Beast. Unfortunately the Beast is prepared for this and attacks the wedding, and kidnaps the princess. I’m still not sure why they had to get married. They could have simply teamed up without a ceremony.
Prince Colwyn learns that the only way to stop the Beast is with an ancient weapon known as the Glave. It’s a five pointed throwing star looking object. He teams up with a magician and a group of bandits, one of those bandits is played by a very young Liam Neeson. They plan on attacking the Black Fortress spaceship but it teleports to a new location every morning. What follows is a very long yet action packed trek to stop the Beast and save the Princess.
The film is corny as corny can be. It was goofy in 1983 and is way worse now. But that’s not a bad thing. This film has a lot of action and is considered a cult classic. Sci-fi fans love the film as does the casual 80’s film fan. Everything about the film is like the 80’s excessive. It’s a weird blend of medieval fantasy mixed with the space background, no doubt because of the Star Wars craze that was still in full effect. It was a high budget film for its time and took a long time to film. The one thing I always enjoyed were how the action scenes were not your typical sci-fi fair. It’s more done in the vein of an old cliffhanger or swashbuckler film. When you throw all of that together you get a very different film to say the least.
Due to the huge cult following, and sheer cheesiness of Krull it makes perfect sense for Mill Creek to release tis as part of their VHS style Blu-ray sets. The cover art is fantastic. It’s the old poster with a Sci-fi stick on the top and a warning label on the bottom that states “This video cassette will MELT if left in the car or in the sun” throw in the fact the cover is painted to look worn and wrinkled and it’s a must have for your collection. Let me also state that the transfer in both video and audio is great. It’s a huge upgrade from its DVD release from years back.
If you dig the movie this is the way to go. If you’re a retro lover or collector pick this up for the cover art alone. It’s still goofy fun, but it does help if you saw this when it originally came out.

VHS was, when I was a kid the wave of the future. Everyone owned multiple VCR’s. Programs were recorded off tv at a record pace. The video store was the place to go to on Friday and Saturday nights. If the cover struck your eye you rented it. You didn’t read the back, you just grabbed the coolest one you could find. Lot of them even had the Rewind sticker on them. For you young folks, you had to rewind those tapes of you would get charge, depending on where you rented between $1-5.00.
VHS collectors are still out there. In fact there are many who prefer to watch VHS over Blu-rays and 4K’s. I don’t get it to be honest, but I understand how the nostalgia factor can kick in. So why not take the best of both worlds. The VHS covers and the Blu-ray transfer’s. Well the fine folks over at Mill Creek have done just that. They are releasing Blu-ray’s and packaging them in a cover that looks like a VHS tape sliding out of the box. It’s pretty genius as they are using the old school style artwork. There are a handful out now with more to come. I picked the Last Action Hero to cover first.
Depending on who you talk to The Last Action Hero is either the most genius action film to come out, or the worst. I rank it as one of the best. The plot is pretty simple. Arnold Schwarzenegger is Jack Slater, a fiction character in a series of action films. His biggest fan is a young boy named Danny Madigan. Danny lives in a crime infested rat hole and loves spending the day watching movies. He’s friends with the owner of the local movie theater who gives him a Golden Ticket to see the new Jack Slater movie before it actually comes out. It turns out this ticket is magical and Danny is transported into the film.
What follows is a clever laugh riot, yet still slam bang action film. Danny becomes Slaters partner and uses his knowledge of films to help solve the case they are working on. Filled with an overabundance of inside jokes and one liners The Last Action Hero is a fantastic film. Jokes where they go into Blockbuster Video and see and add for Terminator 2 starring Sylvester Stallone never gets old to me.
The stunts and action sequences are amazing. It’s a truly larger than life film that unfortunately slows down when Slater and Vivaldi (The bad guy) are transported to the real world. Although when Jack Slater meets Arnold Schwarzenegger plugging Planet Hollywood much to his wife’s anger is a great scene.
I like the film and the transfer Mill Creek has done is stunning. The audio and video quality are fantastic. Everything pops off the screen and the audio blasts through your speakers. I had the film on DVD and I must say this is a marvelous upgrade.
Throw that in with the retro VHS packaging and you have a winner. I would recommend fans pick these up and collect them now while they are available. There priced to own and look really cool displayed with your other films. A must own for film fans.
