Puppet Master II

[NOTE: As I don’t have a Blu-Ray player, I had to review these at a friend’s house. At a party. In other words, this isn’t going to be as detailed as my usual reviews.] Things haven’t gone so well for the survivors of the previous film. To be more specific, one has been mysteriously killed …

Still More Free Horror Movie Commentaries

Once again, I find myself discovering more and more free downloadable movie commentaries long after I thought I’d posted the final installment in the series: Although Dr. Action and The Kick Ass Kid specialize in commentaries on action movies, they have been known to do ones for sci-fi films like Dark Angel (aka I Come …

Trilogy From The Crypt

Tales From The Crypt was destined to go beyond its comic book origins. When you have a series which started off as an unrelated section of Crime Patrol and grew popular enough to take over the comic completely, there’s no other conclusion you can reach. Perhaps that’s why a live-action photograph of the “GhouLunatics” was …

St. Patrick’s Day, Svengoolie Style

Given today’s date and the recent birthday of Rich Koz (aka the man who plays Svengoolie), it seemed that the best way for us to celebrate St. Patty’s Day would be to share this comedy sketch that pits Sven against a leprechaun (but not *the* leprechaun): In case you were wondering, the above video was …

The Undead of Mars

It has been close to five years since Veronica Mars went off the air, and this show was set to remain dead until a few days ago, where a Kickstarter Project raised over two million for a movie. Currently, over 50,000 people have raised over three million for this movie. All right.  At first, I …

With numerous Kickstarter, IndieGoGo and similar sites out there, there’s a lot of competition for your dollar. The Phenomenauts, a band I enjoy, are looking …
