Machete (Robert Rodriguez and Ethan Maniquis, 2010)

The Beyond (Lucio Fulci, 1981)

Next to Zombie Flesh Eaters (1979), this is probably Fulci’s best zombie film. Whilst it is pleasing that Arrow chose to release this on the Blu-Ray format it is disappointing that their quality control is lacking. All the discs that were released… Continue reading

The Complete Sherlock Holmes Collection Blu-Ray

I have fond memories of Friday evenings in the mid 1980s’s when Channel 4, at least I think it was Channel 4, would broadcast each of the Basil Rathbone starring Sherlock Holmes films. I can also recall being in a hotel room in Texas, America in 1… Continue reading
