This riotous, over-the-top epic of excess is the movie for the psycho sports fan in everybody and more fun than a prison cavity search!
DVD Review BARON BLOOD (BLU-RAY)
It's finally time to retire my old laserdisc copy of Mario Bava's return to gothic form, as this promises to be a wonderful Blu-ray edition from Kino Classics.
DVD Review BASKET CASE 2
This second installment of the adventures of everyone's favorite surgically separated conjoined twins takes the weirdness level up a few notches, to say the least.
After spending several years exploring more contemporary genres, director Mario Bava (Black Sunday) returned with Baron Blood to the gothic as a setting for a gruesome thriller. Working with producer Alfredo Leone, Bava crafted a film that is loyal to the bylaws of traditional horror, but is infused with a more modern visual style.
An intense psychological thriller that will bring you face to face with pure terror. Samuel L. Jackson is Richie, a mysterious stranger who shows up at John's (Luke Wilson) door asking for help with his car. All too soon, the mild-mannered John discovers he has become an unwilling passenger, trapped in a murderous ride through town and deep into the countryside. When Richie decides to pay a visit to John's wife (Leslie Bibb) and kids, John has no choice but to confront this sadistic and unpredictable killer - But saving his family will ultimately come at a terrible price.
Though the swampland crime scenes are outside their jurisdiction, Detective Heigh is unable to turn his back on solving the gruesome murders.

Directed By Ami Canaan Mann & Starring Sam Worthington, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Jessica Chastain, Chloee Grace Moretz And Jason Clarke.
It's one of the greatest, true detective stories ever. Featuring eight spellbinding missions, Nazi Hunters tells how a select band of secret agents and avengers hunted down some of the most evil men in history... And finally brought them to justice.

DVD Review EMBODIMENT OF EVIL (BLU-RAY)
Coffin Joe returns over 40 years since he last appeared on screen. Having this little-seen, low budget shocker on Blu-ray is a nice surprise courtesy of the always great Synapse Films.
Extras contain a rare and exclusive short film by Fellini, a video essay on the genesis of the film and a 50 page booklet with exclusive Fellini drawings. Hard-to-find, this 1970 film melds memoir and documentary into a circus of fiction and reality where Fellini delights in the role of ringmaster. The carnival-sounding score composed by Nino Rota, and an appearance by Anita Ekberg (star of Fellini's 1960's masterpiece La Dolce Vita), enhances the Fellini-esque experience.
DVD Review TEMPEST
The fall of the Tsars has proven to be fertile ground for filmic drama, but one of the earlier of these efforts was John Barrymore's Tempest, produced only a decade after the events depicted. With a story written by a Russian, and a screenplay co-written by an uncredited Erich von Stroheim, it certainly promises to be interesting.
DVD Review CHANGING LANES
A nifty thriller begins as an allegorical look at road rage before sinking into a trite and unsatisfying final act.
DVD Review 3 SECONDS BEFORE EXPLOSION
