King of New York released on 4K Blu Ray by Arrow Video

Arguably maverick filmmaker Abel Ferrara’s most accessible and explosive film, King of New York’s status as an urban gangster classic is cemented by a magnetic, career-best central performance by Christopher Walken, as well as riveting support from Laurence Fishburne, Wesley Snipes, Giancarlo Esposito, Steve Buscemi and David Caruso. After years inside, drug lord Frank White […]

The Fury (1978)

Well I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. The movie opens with Peter Sandza (played by Kirk Douglas who was 61 at the time) and his son Robin in the Middle East. Robin has special powers and Peter’s friend Ben wants to help Robin nurture his power. However Ben betrays Peter by trying to have him killed […]

House of Usher (1960)

I have always had a soft spot for anything starring Vincent Price, however I entered this film with some trepidation as it is directed by Roger Corman who isn’t exactly renowned for his high class entertainment. The film centres on a young man by the name of Philip Winthrop (played by Mark Damon) , who […]

Deranged (1974)

I’ll be straight to the point on this one. I wasn’t sold on it at all. However Roberts Blossom who plays the main character Ezra (who some may remember as the street sweeper in Home Alone) is on top form here. He gives the part his all. The story is loosely based on Ed Gein, […]

The Car (1977)

“What evil drives the car?” That’s the question posed by this brilliantly cult movie from 1977. Starring James Brolin (who is a dead ringer for Christian Bale) as a small town police officer having to deal with the jet black car that is cutting a swathe through his small town. That’s pretty much the plot […]

The Initiation (1984)

The Initiation was released in the later half of 1984. It was released when video stores were stuffed to the gills with cheap slasher movies and various knock-offs. The plot revolves around a young girl called Kelly, who keeps having a reoccurring nightmare about her father being stabbed and a mysterious burning man. She speaks […]

PIN (1988)

Well what a strange film this was. This psycho-sexual thriller directed by Sandor Stern who has languished in ‘TV movie hell’ since is a mixed bag. It starts off promising enough. We have a couple Dr Linden, played by the brilliant Terry O’Quinn (Millennium, Lost) and his wife played by Brownen Mantel (Gothika). Dr Linden […]
