Elvira: Mistress of the Dark is a fun, silly fantasy-comedy that any fan of the character will probably eat up, however myself, I never grew up watching her so I don’t have the same love for the character compared with most around my age.
The Wind, starring Meg Foster, Wings Hauser and David McCallum arrived on Blu-ray through Arrow Video back in April and includes a new interview with the director and the complete score composed in part by Hans Zimmer.
One Missed Call 2 may not be as strong of a film as its predecessor and certainly plays fast and loose with any rules, if there are any, seemingly making it up as they went along. Having said that, I did like the two lead actors and still managed to be entertained.
It might be too simplistic to call Crimson Peak style over substance, but I couldn’t quite embrace this gothic-romantic in spite of some incredible production designs and a couple fine performances by Hiddleston and Chastain.
Flowers in the Attic is a movie prior I had heard of but never had much desire to see, and while the film had its problems, but the performances by the cast, particularly Louise Fletcher, were impressive.
TheRingu Collection is another great release from Arrow Video and although the three movies included weren’t amazing, the first still being the best, but any fan of J-horror should have this in their collection.
Ringu 0 is actually a well done prequel that gives life to the Sadako character and gives a pretty good reason for enacting a curse on others later, although still not entirely sure how it gets caught on a VHS tape…
Ringu is a wonderfully atmospheric supernatural horror film that I wonder if anyone used to modern horror has the patience to sit through as most of the movie has two characters doing research instead of an evil girl cursing victims.
Killer Nun is a messy horror film under the ‘nunsploitation’ label though outside of a sometimes intense performance from Anita Ekberg and some interesting moments here and there, this never quite captured my attention.
