Bluray Review: Zombie High, The Dungeonmaster/Eliminators

The gang at Scream Factory has done an excellent job bringing some of Empire Pictures’ earlier films to the masses with new blurays that for the most part, offer some good transfers and a hefty amount of new supplemental material for fans of those ’80s gems.

Three New Sexy Creature Features Rising at Full Moon

Charles Band sent out an email alerting the world that Full Moon Entertainment is gearing up with three new monster movies featuring damsels in distress: a sequel, a zombie flick, and in what will come as a shock to no one, a new film revolving around a quartet of pint-sized fiends.

In what I can only consider to be a sequel I never thought would ever come into existence, Full Moon will soon begin work on Killer Eye 2: Halloween Haunt. Really? Of all the movies in their library to make a sequel to they chose an obscure, incoherent, David DeCoteau-directed, T&A sci-fi horror movie from 1999?
