Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe, and the X-men’s Professor X, James McAvoy, join forces to breathe new life (so to speak) into one of the greatest horror stories ever told. Told from Igor’s perspective, this »

This one’s going to be a cake walk, creeps: two vintage 80s slasher flicks and some Vincent Price. Sometimes ancient talismans procured in questionable eBay lots really do work as advertised!

Pieces had a weird effect on me when I first saw it. I remember thinkin’ it was one of the greatest slasher films I’d e’er slapped my eerie eyeballs upon, as it pretty much had everything that makes the genre so outrageous, only amped up to the nth degree. I also remember thinkin’ “Man, I need to own this film right away; it’s the bat’s knees!” I then sat down, ate a slice of pizza (maybe it was a sandwich… »
The film that heralded the start of the ninja craze in the West, Enter the Ninja was one of many martial arts action films made by the uber-prolific producers Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus after they purchased Cannon Films in the late 70s.
Directed by Golan, Enter the Ninja tells the story of Cole (Franco Nero), a Westerner who is trained in the art of ninjitsu in Japan. Finishing his training he heads the Philippines to visit his war buddy Frank Landers (Alex Courtney) and his newlywed wife Mary Ann (Susan George), who are the owners of farm which is under attack from unscrupulous businessman Charles Venarius (Christopher George) because – unbeknownst to the Landers – there’s a huge oil deposit under their land!

Very few films hit my blood soaked heart as hard as Juan Piquer Simón’s slasher classic, Pieces. It’s such an excellent film, one that every horror fan should experience at least once in their lifetime. Thanks to the always kick-ass gang at Grindhouse Releasing, horror fans who have been aching for a special edition of the 1982 gorefest can now celebrate, with the announcement of an epic March 1st release of a 3-Disc collector’s edition of the film, complete with a massive list of special features, as well as a limited edition puzzle that comes along with the first 3,000 copies of the film (fans buying the film from DiabolikDVD will also receive the film on February 23rd, earlier than those who purchase it from other sites/stores). The pre-orders for the film (DiabolikDVD and Amazon) are already selling like crazy, so be sure to jump on this one, »

The three Ninja films produced by 1980’s low-budget kings Cannon Films that like many of the studio’s films have become cult hits since their initial release.
“Before Menahem, I didn’t and I bet that millions of people didn’t know the word ‘Ninja'” said Boaz Davidson in Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films, 2015’s superb documentary on the crazy life and times of The Cannon Group, led by Israeli cousins Menahem Golan and Yorum Globus. The duo has bought Cannon Films in 1979 and went on to make their mark on American cinema and pop – culture through the 1980’s before going bust in 1994. They introduced us to any wild films, »
