By 1995, it was safe to say that John Carpenter’s best days as a filmmaker were behind him. He had made the last of his many masterpieces one year earlier with 1994’s In the Mouth of Madness and would, in fact, direct only four more theatrical features in his career (as of this writing, at least). It would be difficult to argue for any of the four as being his best work.
Though his filmography boasts a handful of detours, most were movies Carpenter made to demonstrate his ability to do something other than horror—the romantic drama of Starman, the would-be commercial FX comedy Memoirs of an Invisible Man. He’s only ever made two movies that feel like dispassionate for-hire gigs. One is The Ward. The other is Village of the Damned, new to Blu-ray from Scream Factory.

Let’s be honest here: Scream Factory is a continuous machine, releasing genre favorites and various other films every year, with a strong emphasis on putting out films that horror fans have been dying to see given the deluxe treatment. From the early days of putting out awesome special editions of films like Halloween III and Lifeforce, to their ongoing partnership with IFC Midnight for releases such as The Babadook or Dark Summer, it’s a surefire fact that they’ve instilled an all across the board approach to the horror home video plateau. We dedicated a pretty hefty amount of time this past week to giving recent and upcoming Sf releases an in depth look, so naturally, here’s part one of our two-part our Massive Scream Factory rundown review!

George C. Reeves Jr., formerly an entertainment lawyer, business affairs executive as well as a producer and writer for television, died in hospice at his West Los Angeles home last Thursday, after a long battle with prostate cancer. He was 78.
Reeves worked as a lawyer and business affairs executive at American International Pictures, ABC, Intermedia Entertainment, Triad Talent Agency and New World Television.

Survivors include his son, director Matthew Reeves, and daughter Dawn.

For every slasher or gore-filled genre entry, I try to keep an eye on films that rely more on your psychological side. It’s a gamble, with most films falling in the category ending up being a rehash of the same ol’ mind-trip that their protagonists go through. Some films however, offer something different, something intellectual and something fresh & exciting. Lucky for us, John Fallon’s The Shelter is just that type of film, one that doesn’t treat its audience like idiots, and puts you through an experience that leaves you drained (in a good way).
Introducing us to Thomas (the great Michael Pare), a homeless man who has obviously been through hell and back, The Shelter gives us just that: a building in which Thomas seeks a place to sleep for the night. What Thomas (and us audience members) then experiences, is a night of visions, apparitions, and »

Stars: Natalie Burn, Vinnie Jones, Daryl Hannah, Edward Furlong, Jason London, Robert Davi, Michael Paré, Christa Campbell, David Keith, Michael Copon, Daz Crawford, Augie Duke, Benny Urquidez | Written by Mark Atkins, Natalie Burn, Ryan Priest | Directed by Mark Atkins
What makes distributors think that joe public will grab any Vinnie Jones movie off the supermarket shelf sight unseen? The man isn’t exactly the bastion of quality direct to market movies these days (have you seen the godawful Kill Kane?) Thankfully I took a look at the rest of the credits for Left To Die and it was those that sold me on buying this gem of a film on iTunes, Not Mr. Jones… After all, just look at that cast: Daryl Hannah, Edward Furlong, Jason London, Robert Davi, Michael Paré, Christa Campbell, David Keith and there’s even a cameo by Benny “The Jet” Urquidez – a veritable who’s who of Dtv megastars! »

Stars: Johnny Messner, Vinnie Jones, Estella Warren, James Remar, Michael Paré, Richard Burgi, Matt Cinquanta, Rachel Laurenne, Ardeshir Radpour, Michael J Long, Paulina Vallin | Written by Sean Ryan | Directed by Timothy Woodward Jr.
Assassination, aka Decommissioned sees CIA agent John Niles (Messner) set up to be the patsy in the assassination of the President of the United States after the President (Burgi) announces plans to decomission (hence the films original title) a special taskforce within the Us government which spies on its own citizens, citing that it is against the Us constitution. However those involved with the taskforce, dubbed BT85, have other ideas…
Ok, let’s lay our cards on the table. I’m a big fan of Johnny Messner, I have been since his starring role in the 2005 cop show Killer Instinct (a show that was, and still is, criminally underrated). Since then Messner has been working steadily in »
