1985 / 1:85 / Street Date August 8, 2017
Cinematography: Mac Ahlberg
Film Editor: Lee Percy
Produced by Brian Yuzna
Music: Richard Band
Directed by Stuart Gordon
Released in 1985, Stuart Gordon’s Re-Animator remains the grandest of Grand Guignols, a viscerally entertaining comedy that is just grindhouse enough for fans of Blood Feast and arthouse enough for connoisseurs of Francis Bacon’s more grisly canvases.
Originally scripted for Chicago’s Organic Theater Company by Gordon and co-writers Dennis Paoli and William Norris, Re-Animator was based on H. P. Lovecraft’s short story, Herbert West – Re-Animator, first published in 1922. Set in the blandly generic college town of Arkham, Massachusetts, the action revolves in and around the classrooms of stately Miskatonic University’s medical school and the sterilized atmosphere of the academy’s dank morgue evoked so well by Mac Ahlberg’s lush cinematography. »

Tell me the MPAA isn’t a form of censorship? In order to achieve a theatrical release in some markets, the filmmakers behind the Blood Feast (read our review) remake were forced to edit the film to achieve an “R” rating. “Some markets are unable to screen an unrated film,” said Hannover House CEO, Eric Parkinson.

Blood Feast will make its Us debut on June 23rd.
Fuad Ramses (Robert Rusler – A Nightmare On Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge, Vamp, Tales of Halloween) and his family have moved from the United States to France, where they run an American diner. Since business is not going too well, Fuad also works night shifts in a museum of ancient Egyptian culture. During these long, lonely nights he is repeatedly drawn to a statue representing the seductive ancient goddess Ishtar. He becomes more and more allured by the goddess as she speaks to him in visions. Eventually he succumbs to her deadly charms. »

Let me see your heart!
Let me break something down real quick. I justifiably catch a reputation as being someone who likes to like things. And that’s true. Whenever I have time to share movie talk with folks, I want to talk about the things I love. Because, for me, it’s just too darn easy to fall down a rabbit hole of negativity. When I stumble across something that thrills me, I want to share it. Even still, sometimes I’m a bit abashed when it comes to how enthusiastic I tend to be about things. This is especially true when I find a great new-to-me trash-cinema film. Over Easter Weekend, I got stuck on a “Blood” film kick. Don’t judge me. I like topical themes. Any road, that’s when I ran into Blood Diner. I had no idea this movie existed until I saw the poster flipping through movies on Shudder. When »

Donald Farmer’s cult classic, Vampire Cop has delighted B-movie fans for over two and half decades since debuting in 1990. It also marked one of the earliest appearances of popular scream queen Melissa Moore. Yet to this day, it’s only been released on VHS…
Now Srs Cinema have announced not only Vampire Cop‘s Blu-ray debut but also, as an added bonus, the release will include the director’s original cut for the very first time anywhere – scenes that were cut by the original distributor prior to release. This original version includes scenes with Melissa Moore and Blood Feast star Mal Arnold that no one has ever scene, besides extending many moments in the movie.
