  • “31 Nights Of Terror” Scribbler

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Archive Authors on October 24th, 2014

    by John Delia

    Here’s a young adult targeted DVD that’s based on a graphic novel called The Scribbler. Perfect for those who want to cozy up on Halloween night, this science fiction thriller has a wicked tone and some ghoulish ghastly scenes. Actually, it’s very well acted for a low-budget indie, and the special effects are also a treat. The story gets kinda funky and way off the wall, but that’s what science fiction’s all about.

    “31 Days Of Terror” Life After Beth (Blu-ray)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Brent Lorentson on October 23rd, 2014

    Imagine if you had a second chance to tell that loved one you lost how much you loved them, or were able to do the things you wished you had done the first time, but you hesitated because you didn’t take into account the fragility of life.   Life After Beth shows us the joys that can come with when getting that second chance while at the same time revealing the dark consequences that may come with this new opportunity.  There are numerous zombie films and series out in the market, but Life After Beth may be the most unique take on the genre in some time.

    Billy Crystal: 700 Sundays

    Posted in Disc Reviews by John Ceballos on October 22nd, 2014

    Billy Crystal has built a legendary career as one of the most multi-faceted entertainers in all of showbiz. He’s a successful actor, comedian, writer, producer and director. At various points, Crystal has been a major star on television, on stage, and at the movies. He’s entertained everyone from musicians to movie stars, thanks to his gigs as a three-time Grammy host and nine-time Academy Awards emcee. But what works best about his return to the stage in 700 Sundays — Crystal’s Tony-winning one-man show — is how it illustrates the idea that virtually every entertainer gets his or her first round of applause in the family living room.

    The Last Supper (Blu-ray)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by John Ceballos on October 21st, 2014

    “Kings are made, not born.”

    It’s a provocative thesis for any story, especially since the same debate about kings has played out over centuries’ worth of world history. Unfortunately, filmmaker Lu Chuan largely decided to take a “tell, don’t show” approach with The Last Supper, which depicts the last gasp of China’s Qin dynasty and the rise of the Han dynasty and its commoner-turned-emperor.

    “31 Nights Of Terror” Haunting at Preston Castle

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Brent Lorentson on October 20th, 2014

    For fans of many of the ghost-hunting shows, Preston Castle is a location many will already be familiar with.  Once a former reform school for boys that opened in 1894 and finally shut down in the 1960’s, it was a location rumored to hold many atrocities against its young occupants.  Whether you are a believer in the supernatural or not, Preston Castle is a location that upon appearance is beautiful as well as foreboding, and is the perfect location for a haunted house film.  Of course the film boasts that it is inspired by true events, but I don’t think anyone should exactly hold the filmmakers up to a fact-checking examination, but instead just simply sit back and enjoy the ride.

    “31 Nights Of Terror” Chemical Peel

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Brent Lorentson on October 18th, 2014

    Unless you have been living under a rock, I’m sure by now you’ve heard about the Ebola scare that is headlining the airwaves.  The release of Chemical Peel couldn’t be timelier to effectively feed off the fears of the American public that is glued to their television screens, waiting for the announcement of the newly infected.  This is the kind of free marketing even the big-budget films wish they could get.  Unfortunately what is missing from the film are characters for us to care about and root for, and that is never a good sign.

    Fury

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on October 17th, 2014

    “Ideals are peaceful. History is violent.”

    David Ayer doesn’t have a huge resume of films to his credit. In his 15 years as a director he’s only given us five films. Add just another three as a writer. What he has done as a writer and/or director appears to explore some of the same themes of machismo under heavy fire that are splattered all about Fury along with the blood and gore that is the natural byproduct of war. He’s the kind of filmmaker who doesn’t appear to tackle a project unless he finds he has something to say. In the past that voice hasn’t always been terribly original.

    “31 Nights Of Terror” Witching & Bitching

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Archive Authors on October 17th, 2014

    By John Delia

    If you are looking for a comedy with horror on DVD for a get-together with friends on Halloween, check out Witching & Bitching. It’s very raunchy, gross and gory, but if you like rude, crude and unglued, then this film’s perfect for an adult party.  The film plays out in Spanish with English subtitles, but don’t let that bother you.  The visuals are so funny and wacky, it’s worth a little reading while you watch.

    Men, Women and Children

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Paul O'Callaghan on October 17th, 2014

    The internet is destroying everything. It seems crazy, but it’s true, and most people know it. I mean that so many businesses have been destroyed by the tumorous growth of the internet and its insidious and unchecked influence. The newspaper business, music business, broadcast business and probably the movie business have been fundamentally and permanently altered. Men,Women and Children addresses how it affects each and every one of us on a daily basis. We’re all aware of this. It’s our lives now, and it wasn’t 10 years ago.

    “31 Nights Of Terror” The Following: Season 2

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Brent Lorentson on October 16th, 2014

    The creator of Dawson’s Creek and The Vampire Diaries, Kevin Williams, delivers a thriller that is a bold new entry in the crime drama for television.  Season one of The Following was 15 episodes of nail-biting bliss that kept the viewer guessing and riveted long after its gut-wrenching cliffhanger.  For a while I was beginning to wonder if Williamson had lost his touch with the Scream series, but what you’ll discover in the Fox series is that Williamson may just be the king of creating and penning one of the darkest serial killers on the small screen.

    Nashville: The Complete Second Season

    Posted in Disc Reviews by John Ceballos on October 15th, 2014

    If you’ve ever asked someone, “What kind of music do you listen to?”, chances are you’ve heard the phrase, “I like everything…except country.” By that logic, a significant portion of TV viewers automatically dismissed ABC’s Nashville when it premiered two years ago. The flawed, entertaining musical drama has deservedly made it to a third season, which kicked off a few weeks ago. However, I think it’s useful to revisit Nashville‘s sophomore season. This set of episodes significantly re-calibrated the series — not always for the better — and marked the start of a shift toward the version of the show that is currently on the air.

    “31 Nights Of Terror” Exclusive Interview With Daniel Stamm

    Posted in Podcasts by Gino Sassani on October 14th, 2014

    Daniel Stamm is one of those directors who comes along once in a while with some fresh ideas. He’s given us the controversial A Necessary Death, The Last Exorcism and 13 Sins. There are some rather nice chills to be found in his films, but whatever you do: Don’t call him a horror director. Okay, you can call him a horror director, if you want. Bang it here to check out our recent review for 13 Sins.

    I had the chance to chat with Daniel. He’s an energetic talent with passion for the craft. It was a great time. Now you can check out what he had to say. Bang it here to sit in on our talk: Daniel Stamm Interview.

    2 Broke Girls: The Complete Third Season

    Posted in Disc Reviews by John Ceballos on October 14th, 2014

    Everyone on TV has nicer clothes and a bigger home than you do. And I’m not just talking about fictional doctors or lawyers. Even small-screen characters with relatively modest incomes manage to live in palatial apartments. Need proof? The 2 Broke Girls in CBS’s hit sitcom have an apartment that is literally big enough to fit a horse. (Hi, Chestnut.) Season 3 brings a new pet (Ep. 3/“And the Kitty Kitty Spank Spank”) and briefly threatens to remove Max and Caroline from their home (Ep. 22/“And the New Lease on Life”). I don’t think I’m giving anything away by saying things work out in the end. By now, the show’s crass predictability has become oddly comforting.

    “31 Nights Of Terror” Ben 10 Omniverse – Galactic Monsters

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Brent Lorentson on October 13th, 2014

    With the month of October in full swing, it comes as no surprise to see Halloween-themed episodes popping up.  With the new DVD of Ben 10: Galactic Monsters, sure, it’s a cash grab for the holiday season, but thankfully on this release we get a set of fun episodes that are a bit of a departure from the average episodes.  It’s not that I dislike Ben 10, but it’s a show I enjoy in small doses; after all, too much of anything can always be a bad thing.  But thankfully, with the average five-episode release we get on the DVD from Cartoon Network, it has just the right amount of episodes to please everyone.

    Duck Dynasty: Season 6 (Blu-ray)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Brent Lorentson on October 13th, 2014

    It’s that time of the year again to dust off the old hunting rifle and shake out the camouflage suits, because Duck Commander is back in action.  Duck Dynasty comes to Blu-ray on its sixth season, and I am just about certain it is time the quack pack has hung up their camo and walked away from their television careers.  The show has had a good run, but with this current season it is clear the show has run its course, and it is time the Robertson’s should make a graceful exit while their ratings are still strong.

    The Judge

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on October 12th, 2014

    “Did that just happen?”

    I have to confess that I entered The Judge expecting a different kind of film than I actually saw. After seeing the trailer I was reminded of some of the classic courtroom dramas I’d seen over the years from 12 Angry Men through …And Justice For All. On the ride to the screening I found my mind was swimming with the “closing arguments” Al Pacino delivered in …And Justice For All and was trying to image how Robert Downey, Jr. was going to try and top that. In the end Downey didn’t top that wonderful monologue. In the end The Judge simply wasn’t that kind of a movie after all.

    Kill the Messenger

    Posted in Disc Reviews by John Ceballos on October 11th, 2014

    It’s October, which means there’s probably a new, spine-tingling offering coming at you every day. (That’s certainly the case here at UpcomingDiscs.) Kill the Messenger — a thoroughly compelling, true-life drama that channels the crusading spirit of All the President’s Men and The Insider — is no one’s idea of a horror movie. Unless you’re like me, and you happen to be a newspaper reporter.

    “31 Nights Of Terror” Dracula Untold

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Brent Lorentson on October 10th, 2014

    With the Marvel universe taking off and scoring at the box office for many years now, studios are digging for franchises they can start up or reboot to cash in on the craze.  Warner Brothers is stumbling a bit with DC comics, but Universal has remained quiet, that is until someone in the creative department realized they own the properties to the greatest horror characters of all time.  When Dracula, The Wolfman, and The Mummy were in their heyday, actors like Karloff and Lugosi became instant icons of cinema.

    Sleeping Beauty: Diamond Edition (Blu-ray)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Archive Authors on October 9th, 2014

    By John Delia

    Most every child knows the story of Disney’s Sleeping Beauty from early video, books and DVD.  Unless you went to see the movie at a theater back in the 1959, however, you probably saw a version that was not crisp and colorful. Finally, after what seems forever, the family animated fantasy has been Blu-ray remastered and digitally restored in super widescreen. The Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD have new bonus features and include the DVD release’s special extras as well.
