Jake Busey Tells Us How 'From Dusk till Dawn: The Series' Is Kick-starting His Career Comeback

14 April 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

If someone were to make a 20 Feet from Stardom-type documentary about actors, they'd be smart to talk to Jake Busey. We spoke with him earlier today about his role in Robert Rodriguez' From Dusk till Dawn: The Series and were surprised by how honest he was about how his career didn't exactly go the way he was expecting. After all, some of his earliest jobs were in high-profile films from directors like Robert Zemeckis, Paul Verhoeven, Tony Scott and Peter Jackson. Unfortunately those films were also high-profile disappointments, from a box office perspective at least. Movies like Contact, Starship Troopers and The Frighteners have gone on to live long, great lives on home video, but as Busey told us, being in a movie that takes a decade to become a cultural hit...

‘Dr. Mordrid’ DVD Review

17 February 2014 1:20 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Jeffrey Combs, Yvette Nipar, Jay Acovone, Keith Coulouris, Brian Thompson, Jeff Austin | Written by C. Courtney Joyner | Directed by Charles & Albert Band

88 Films are a company that release some real oddities when it comes to movies, and most of them come from Charles Band’s Full Moon company.  Doctor Mordrid is one of these, and hiding away in the nineties section of direct to video releases is very reminiscent to a certain Marvel character known as Dr. Strange.  With a little research it comes as no surprise that Albert Band (who directed this along with Charles) once held the option to make a live action Dr. Strange movie, but when this ran out…the characters and movie were altered and yes, you guessed it we were left with Doctor Mordrid.

The fact that this could have been a Marvel live action movie from the nineties in many ways raises alarm bells, »

Synapse Films Wants You to Buy a Bag So Popcorn Can Go Home in a Blu-ray Box

27 January 2014 7:15 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

“Buy a Bag, Go Home in a Box.” You have no idea how thrilled I am to report that one of my absolute favorite horror movies of the Nineties, Popcorn, will get a fully-loaded special edition Blu-ray sometime around Halloween this year courtesy of Synapse Films.

For the uninitiated, Popcorn is a love letter to the golden age of b-movies in the guise of a fun slasher flick about film students putting on an all-night bad movie horror film festival; a master-of-disguise maniac begins killing them off during the show via twisted takes on old school movie theater gimmicks.

The true highlights are the fake movies-within-the-movie lovingly paying homage to the b-movies of the Fifties and Sixties: The Amazing Electrified Man, The Stench, and Mosquito!

As much as I’ve had a major soft spot for Popcorn since seeing it in theaters opening weekend, I clearly don’t love it »
