When it comes to cult films of the ’80s, the Mark L. Lester (Commando, Firestarter)-helmed Class Of 1984 has always been one that has held a special place in my heart. I caught it for the first time as a kid, when my grandmother and I watched TV together and this gem of a film came on, and my grandmother and I were both equally on edge. The “teacher vs. rebel students” film is by far one of my favorite films, so when Scream Factory e-mailed me about their upcoming Bluray debut of Class Of 1984 hitting shelves (and online stores) on April 14th, the idea of a brand new, collector’s edition Bluray instantly gave me a smile from ear to ear. The film has everything from a script co-written by horror legend Tom Holland, a kickass Alice Cooper song, an early appearance by Michael J.Fox, and »

What if the ghastly images and abominations haunting our collective nightmares actually exist? Writer/director Adam Green (Hatchet) sets out to make a documentary exploring this tantalizing premise after being contacted by a mysterious man named William Dekker (Ray Wise). Dekker claims he can prove that “monsters are real” and insists these grotesque creatures are forgotten, hideously deformed humanoids inhabiting a vast, underground metropolis of the damned. Determined to expose the truth, Green embarks on a bone-chilling odyssey and gets more than he bargains for when he dares to go Digging Up the Marrow.

Mr. Hush (2011)
Written by: David Lee Madison
Directed by: David Lee Madison
I don’t want to reveal my hand to early on this one, but then again you guys probably know by now that I don’t rip into any film to tear it to shreds. Typically, it’s for two reasons. I see what they were trying to do with a limited budget. The heart is there, but the money ain’t. Also, I’ve had to double back on my opinions of films on the first watch.

Last month I selected the poster for Lenny Abrahamson’s Frank as my favorite poster of 2014. In the article I invited the “as-yet uncredited designer at P+A studio” to “come out from behind the mask and take a bow,” and so I was very pleased when I got an email from Nicolette Vilar a few days later letting me know that she was the P+A designer behind the giant papier-mâché head.
Nicolette, it turns out, was the perfect designer for a film about a fractured rock band, because as well as being a talented artist she is also the on-again, off-again lead singer of the all-female punk pop group Go Betty Go who have recently reunited and have a new Ep out this month. The band formed in 2001, released two CDs and played on the Vans Warped Tour, but Nicolette left in 2005. She recently rejoined the band with »
