  • Garv’s Pick of the Week: The Wrong Guy (Kino Lorber)

    For the release week of November 28th: Garv’s Pick of the Week: The Wrong Guy : This hilarious Canadian Hitchcock spoof from writer/actor/comedian Dave Foley (The Kids in the Hall) never received a U.S. theatrical release.  That’s a shame, because The Wrong Guy was funnier than...
  • Blood Rage (1987)

    Welcome back, dear readers.  It’s been a while since I visited the Junk Drawer; but since it’s Thanksgiving, I thought that I would share a real special film for you today. When you think Thanksgiving, you think family gatherings, too much food, football, and slasher films. Well, maybe not...

  • The Crazies (1973)

    Welcome back, everyone, to the third and final review for the Arrow Video release of George A. Romero: Between Night and Dawn (6-Disc Limited Edition) Box Set.  This time I am reviewing The Crazies (1973), Romero’s biggest and most complex movie up to that point in his...

Factory, has announced the final specs for their upcoming Blu-ray Collector’s Edition of director Joe Dante’s Matinee (1993).  This was one of our most anticipated discs of 2017, which was pushed back slightly to early 2018.  However, it sounds like the wait will...

  • Seven Blood-Stained Orchids Blu-ray

    Greetings, giallo junkies, Put on your black gloves, and pour yourself a glass of J&B.  Code Red has dated and detailed their previously announced Blu-ray release of Umberto Lenzi’s Seven Blood-Stained Orchids (1972). I haven’t seen this one, but I hear it’s one of Lenzi’s best films, and I’m overjoyed...
  • The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971)

    The classic Universal creature features of the 1930s and 40s served as my entry point into horror cinema.  Filmed in black and white, the films oozed atmosphere, but they never featured anything truly terrifying that my six year-old self couldn’t handle.  The monsters were slow-witted and lumbering, but even...
  • Kill, Baby… Kill! (Operazione paura,1966)

    In my last review, we took a look at Sergio Martino’s The Suspicious Death of a Minor (1975), a solid “mash-up” of two Italian film genres, “giallo” and “poliziotteschi.” Today we’re going to take a look at a standout in Italian gothic horror, written and directed by one of its...
