I'm almost just as excited about seeing the bonus feature, THE LIVING IDOL, which was co-directed (uncredited) by Renť Cardona (SANTA CLAUS and a lot of Mexican wrestling movies).

2 months?! I start to get tetchy if orders take longer than 1 week!

just ordered:

FINAL EXAM (1981)

NIGHT SCHOOL aka TERROR EYES (1981)

I'm a total early 80s slasher nerd so not sure how I've missed these 2...they're not on youtube and I don't stream movies anywhere else, so I've gotta have them!

I don't buy many movies anymore because I have a ton and already have most of the ones I would want, but this is my most recent addition.  A 1971 spaghetti western.

 i see someone bought (1981)'s Final Exam,i watched that oh it i think was a couple weeks ago and it was one of the worst films i've ever seen.

WOW was it bad, as for ones i bought i bought The Omen films on blu-ray though the case is bent i just didn't feel like going back to wall mart when i think that was the last copy that they had i think? the set is all 4 films including the remake which i have not seen, i've only seen the first 2 films.

Final Conflict i actually have the book of and i think i have the book for the others too but i just have never gotten around to actually read them.
how bad is the remake anyways?

Also, I actually bought a digital copy of this on YouTube, since it was only about a dollar more than the rental price and a Blu-ray is not out yet:

I hadnít seen Candyman (1992) in about 25 years, so I ordered it off of Amazon and watched it again the other night. It was scarier in the Ď90s but it is still a very well done movie. The acting is what really drives this movie and I love the whole urban folklore angle that it takes. Tony Todd is at his best in this movie, second only to his best performance in Night Of The Living Dead (1990). I didnít know until the other day that Virginia Madsen is Michael Madsenís little sister.  :cheers:

I bought "Night Owl" (1990) with John Leguizamo.  While he's not the main character, he has a major part.   Apparently it took 2 years to film.  The sad part is, it's ALMOST a great movie. The script needed one more draft before they started shooting IMHO. It's a vampire movie... theoretically. However, the rules of the vampire are inconsistent. This makes the movie confusing. It almost could be taken that the main character is just a psychopathic killer using vampirism as an excuse...but that doesn't come across either since the script has minor inconsistencies in regards to what exactly is going on.

HABIT (1995) explores the theme weather the killer is actually killing.. or an actual vampire without too much confusion.   

However, NIGHT OWL (1990) is still worth watching.

i watched all the candy man movies years ago and i think the only one that was at least decent was the last one but Tony Todd wasn't in that one and as much as i love Tony Todd and he is damn good in those films that's not even a question, but those are terrible movies i had such high hopes for the 1st film but i thought it was terrible but it was better than the sequels i can't remember which one was worse the 2nd or the 3rd but maybe it's cause i've seen it all before cause it's the same thing as Bloody Mary the old tale and Supernatural did it better in season 1 than Candyman did i think but again to each their own i suppose,

let's see last week i think it was? i bought Captain America: Civil wars and it was one of the weaker films i thought not a terrible film but i think it was 7/10 i gave it. Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (2017) is one i bought awhile back, 'Thor' (2011) and it's sequel Dark World (2013) i've been trying to get all the Marvel films on 4K and i've got 9  more to get before i have them all.  the last Spider-man film i bought as well but i'm not watching that until i see the 1st one and i don't have that one yet.

i missed that i see someone bought "The Devil's Nightmare (1971) i thought that was a decent movie actually.  i have not seen that Lugosi film though, i hope it's better than "The Devil Bat' (1941) that one is WOW painfully bad.

For one whole United States Dollar, I got "Mr. Moto Takes a Vacation"    with Peter Lorre. 

There is a cool bonus feature "The return of Mr. Moto" with Henry Silva reprising the role 20 years later.   I was pleasantly surprised by this bonus movie.   While it did try to cash in on the Spy craze after the 007 franchise took the world by storm, this film didn't catch anyone's attention to make more sadly (IMHO)   

Henry Silva did not need to have his eyes taped back to give an Asian slant. Since it was filmed in Black and white, he did not need makeup either.   The best bit is, Mr. Silva did not resort to a cheap Asian accent for his performance. In fact, only once does "Mr. Moto's " Japanese" ancestry rise up; when he has to pass off as a Japanese ambassador.  Otherwise, he's just another Interpol agent who happens to look Japanese.   

For an action film, there is not a whole lot of action, There are fight scenes, but they are stagnant visually speaking.   The script is okay.  There are parts where it shines...like the villain:  Drago; a former Nazi agent who is rather brutal for a 1965 Hollywood type villain goes.

My roommate got a copy of a Dr. Who set with episodes written by Douglas (Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy fame) Adams.  He was the show runner for a few seasons.   The ones he wrote (at least on this set) were terrible.

Douglass Adams wasn't the show Runner he was one of the writers.  Shada was one the stories he wrote that they never finished cause of a strike at the time but it's a damn good story. but i wonder which one you are talking about? but you are right there are ones he wrote that are good and than there are ones that are just plain awful.

The Last Temptation of Christ (1988) and The Godfather Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone (1990) on blu ray. The new version of The Godfather III (1990) technically came out last year to commemorate the final film's 30th anniversary, but I'm calling it (1990) because that's when we were first introduced to that hot mess. I bought it because I really want to like that movie because I love the first two films and I really want to like the trilogy as a whole, but before the new Star Wars sequel trilogy, The Godfather trilogy had been the worst trilogy I had seen because of the final film, and I'm really hoping that Coppola's remix can pull it off. I haven't seen it yet and I'm saving it for this weekend.

there is actually 3 different versions the (1931) is a decent version i do not remember a thing about it than there's one that Bette Davis did in (1936) The 2nd one is Satan Met a lady (1936) that one is my favorite the (1941) version is a decent one but i love the Bette Davis one but many find that the weakest one i don't but to each their own i suppose.

I've only ever owned the VHS version of Police Story (1985) before, so I know that the blu ray has excellent quality. I love that it includes the original Cantonese audio along with the English dub, so you can appreciate the emotion in the original voice acting. Criterion does their usual excellent quality in restoring these films to their remastered original audio before dubbing and international distribution ruined them for purists. The Bruce Lee collection is a definite must-buy; even though it is 1080p blu ray, they must have remastered them in 4K or something because they can easily pass for 4K movies if you are watching them on a 4K TV.

s**t man, if youíre looking for some real bottom of the barrel stuff check out some of the other Full Moon movies from around that period. Basically up to 1996 they are either old enough to have a charm to them or benefitted from big studio financing via Paramount. In the late 2000s they had new investors from China which at least gave them enough money to make the movies look like...well movies.

But that in between period is filled with some of the most horrible crap you can imagine. Seriously, a high school video production class could have made some better looking things than some of those movies.

Haha Iíve had the DVD of Stiches sitting on my nightstand for a few months now. Iíve seen a truncated version of it in one of Full Moonís clip show movies that puts a few truncated versions of movies together with very little rhyme or reason. From what Iíve seen Iíd rank Stiches above some of the crap Full Moon has put out, but I havenít had the urge to watch the full thing either.

but Stiches (2000) was also Dr.  see i forget the name of that film from around that time on how bad it it was!

I've read that one and the follow-up. I can't remember if it was in the first novel or second, but I reached a passage in the book where something happens to a guy sitting on the toilet. I read that section and passed it to the guy sitting beside me and told him to read it. The book was then passed from person to person until everyone in the room had read this particular passage. You could tell by the squirming look on everyone's face when they reached this one particular sentence.

I found the first book amongst my shelf this morning so I will look out for that passage (if it's featured in book one) when I find the time to give it a read. Picturing the book being passed around and people being revolted, almost reminds me of crime scene evidence being passed around members of a jury for examination.

Having had a think about it, I think the passage in question is in the follow up (which I believe is called Breeding Ground). I would have been about 16 or 17 when I read it.

A nearly four-hour-long sprawling epic. Is it better than the Whedon version? Well, that comes down to your own taste. I would say it is an exercise in storytelling bearing all the hallmarks of Snyder's established aesthetic. It is less entertaining as a tent pole movie in the Marvel tradition so I guess it comes down to appreciating movies as an art or just wanting to be entertained. Me, I like both versions for different reasons.

Suddenly I'm finding cheap previously viewed DVDs of the recent Star Wars movies in every store I go to... last night I scored The Last Jedi for $8.99, and I wanna go back for Solo next chance I get (unless someone beats me to it).

Mission: Impossible (1996), the 25th Anniversary edition on blu ray. Iím not sure what makes this the ď25th anniversary editionĒ; maybe itís the special features that I havenít looked at yet; probably just some commentary track that they added on to commend the 25th anniversary of the movie or something. The blu ray transfer is terrible in some areas; particularly in the night time scenes where Tom Cruiseís team is initially getting killed off; where some of the colors appear over-saturated and pixely, while other parts of the film look very well done.

If you have at least a 5.1 surround sound system, the movie sounds very loud now because it looks like they redid the audio in Dolby DTS which really packs a punch for a lot of home theater movies nowadays. But Tom Cruise and Jon Voight are still as cheesy as ever in this movie. I havenít actually sat down to watch this movie since 1999 ever since it went into syndication on everything from AMC to TNT throughout the 2000s, so I had forgotten how enjoyably bad that this movie is. I havenít watched any of the other movies in this franchise yet because Iím not a fan of Tom Cruise at all, but this is probably worth picking up on sale.

The Saw 8-Film Collection on blu ray. I saw the first one the year that it came out in 2004, but never gave the other ones a chance because they looked silly. I saw the first one on sale for $14.99 recently, then saw this entire box set on sale for the same price at Walmart the other day and figured "why the hell not?" I'm a sucker for good deals, even if it's something that I'm not that interested in. I might like it though.

Slugs (1988) based on the Huston book. A largely unheard of cast, the majority of whom did nothing other than this film in the industry. Some good kills though.

I've read that one and the follow-up. I can't remember if it was in the first novel or second, but I reached a passage in the book where something happens to a guy sitting on the toilet. I read that section and passed it to the guy sitting beside me and told him to read it. The book was then passed from person to person until everyone in the room had read this particular passage. You could tell by the squirming look on everyone's face when they reached this one particular sentence.

That reminds me of when I was in high school and a friend gave me James Herbert's The Fog to read: there's one chapter where I went OMG, closed it and gave it back. Hint: something to do with a pair of garden shears  :buggedout: :buggedout:

Ah, the school scene. Random story, I'd taken this book to the hospital with me to read when Kristi went in to give birth to Ash. This ended up being the first story I ever read to him.

My local Dollar Tree store has been something of a honey hole for cheap horror DVD's of late... two weekends ago I stopped in there and picked up: The Amityville Murders and Trick.

Last weekend I picked up Satanic Panic (aka Panic according to the cardboard slip cover over the DVD) and You Might Be The Killer.

Today, well, I went a little nuts and hauled in all of these:

Sanitarium (Malcolm McDowell, Robert "Freddy Krueger" Englund, and Lacey "Party of Five" Chabert? Sold!)

Spree (my son saw this and recommended it, back cover sez it's an "American Psycho for the digital age")

3 Lives

Flight From Hell: Dead on Arrival

The Shed (saw the trailer for this in front of "Trick" a few nights back, looks like a hoot)

Z (Shudder Original)

Plus these non-horrors:

The Island (Ewan McGregor/Scarlet Johanssen)

Epicenter - Earthquake disaster flick starring Traci Lords, packaged with 7 more (!) "bonus" movies! Woohoo!

... I think that oughta keep me busy for a little while... :D

Dragon Knight

A man with only one emotion tries to find a dragon to save the world from a handful of guys wearing the mask from ďV for Vendetta.Ē

They find a dragon at the end of the movie, so it only gets a few minutes of screen time. A mix of decent fantasy elements used poorly, with a soundtrack of stick music which occasionally drowns out the dialog.

(Note: that ďonly one emotionĒ quip is a joke about the acting, not a plot point.)


Dragon Heart 5-Movie collection

Why is Dragon Heart getting sequels 20+ years later? I kinda get the first sequal, since it came out just a few years after the original, but the others? Ah well, at least on film in this pack should be good.   :smile:

Seems somewhat interesting so far - VERY low budget Space 1999 type thing but my standards are pretty low.

Low budget British mystery/thriller type thing.  Forty-three of them!  Watched the first two...a bit of a chore.

Got some new DVD's from Dollar Tree.

Specifically, I got a copy of the 1995 comedy Canadian Bacon (a personal favorite of mine) and some mockbuster called Alien Predator that I haven't even heard of. So this should be good.
