WOLFCOP (2014) Blu-ray Review
WOLFCOP (2014) Blu-ray Review What's in a name? That great bastion of philosophy, The Simpsons, once proposed that a person's name could predestine what sort of person he or she would be. If that's true, then the lead character in WolfCop was inevitably going to be a werewolf one day. Lou Garou is an alcoholic cop barely keeping his life together. He spends his shifts drunk, when he manages to turn up for his shifts at all, and his irresponsible actions aren't winning him any friends on the police force.. [READ MORE]

EVILSPEAK (1981) Blu-ray Review
EVILSPEAK (1981) Blu-ray Review Evilspeak is a curious blend of nerd wish-fulfilment fantasy and demonic possession movie, giving it the vicarious thrills that a vigilante picture like Death Wish provides, along with the bloodletting of a slasher that just happens to have a daft supernatural vibe. Admittedly uneven, it has moments of absolute genius when it dares to venture into... [READ MORE]

SAVAGES CROSSING (2011) DVD Review
SAVAGES CROSSING (2011) DVD Review Screenplay by John and Cody Jarratt. Starring John and Charlie Jarratt. Executive produced by John and Cody Jarratt. Released by Winnah Films. I'm getting the sense that Savages Crossing might just be a Jarratt family production. In the movie a storm traps a group people, including some of them Jarratts, at Savages Crossing, an area on the Wonga River... [READ MORE]

Romance and Torture Come Together in LOVE OF MY LIFE
Romance and Torture Come Together in LOVE OF MY LIFE At first glance, the title may make this Australian production sound like something you'd watch on Valentine's Day with a heart shaped box of choccies on your lap, but according to our classification overlords the upcoming DVD will contain "strong violence" people. Strong violence! On March 11, 2015 Eagle Entertainment will release Love of My Life... [READ MORE]

THE BEAST WITHIN (1982) Blu-ray Review
THE BEAST WITHIN (1982) Blu-ray Review The cover of Scream Factory's Blu-Ray disc for The Beast Within proudly proclaims: "This motion picture contains scenes of graphic violence and violent horror. Beware!" That's certainly one way to sell this shlocky early 80's effort from Aussie director Philippe Mora. Another, more honest, way would be to boast "this motion picture contains a few bloody moments... [READ MORE]

BRADDOCK: MISSING IN ACTION III (1988) Blu-ray Review
BRADDOCK: MISSING IN ACTION III (1988) Blu-ray Review Most of the world was deprived a HD version of the first two Missing in Action films when MGM got all dicky and licensed them exclusively to the States' version of Big W. Those lucky enough to procure copies were probably disappointed that Braddock: Missing in Action III didn't materialise as well. Luckily Ascot Elite, who also helped us out with the Ninja films...

ENEMY (2013) Blu-ray Review
ENEMY (2013) Blu-ray Review It's difficult to recommend a movie like Enemy to just anyone – it's most assuredly not something crowd-pleasing like Edge of Tomorrow. You suggest that someone watches a film like Enemy, and it's probably a better than 50/50 chance they end up absolutely despising it, thereby forever tainting your movie-picking prowess in their eyes from that point on...

LEGEND OF THE HILLBILLY BUTCHER (2012) DVD Review
LEGEND OF THE HILLBILLY BUTCHER (2012) DVD Review In principle I am a fan of exploitation/horror throwbacks that try to capture the feel of the classics of yesteryear. I prefer the more tongue in cheek offerings, but I'm okay with the idea of filmmakers playing it straight with this sort of thing… except in their emulations they should not, under any circumstances, recreate the terrible, terrible padding...

Aussie Eco-Thriller LONG WEEKEND Headed for US Blu-ray
Aussie Eco-Thriller LONG WEEKEND Headed for US Blu-ray Colin Eggleston's Aussie eco-thriller Long Weekend was one of the first movies we ever reviewed when this site was launched back in 2002, and at the time the movie was only available on VHS. A few years later it received a fancy DVD upgrade (Review), but now that shiny Umbrella Entertainment release - not to mention the mangy old ex-rental tape... [READ MORE]

THE TOXIC AVENGER (1988) 88 Films Blu-ray Review
THE TOXIC AVENGER (1988) 88 Films Blu-ray Review I first encountered The Toxic Avenger when I was about six. My younger cousin and I went to a video store and I was allured by the iconic cover art. My aunt spent a while debating whether the movie would be suitable for two youngsters, uncertain if its being unrated was because it was a cheap kid's movie that nobody submitted to the MPAA...
