Good things came from Amazon yesterday! Two of my favorite movies arrived on Blu-ray. X is simply my favorite horror so far this year and a film I find gets better with repeat viewings. The Batman which has many horror film elements and even starts out on Halloween night!
Good things came from Amazon today! One of my favorite guilty pleasures from the 80, and one of the best of the pre-Lord of the Rings sword and sorcery epics, The Sword and the Sorcerer has finally made it to Blu-Ray, and it’s 4k, too! Directed by Albert Pyun and written by him, Tom Karnowski and John V. Stuckmeyer, The Sword and the Sorcerer is a gory, action-packed 80s cult classic that fans have been waiting to arrive on HD disc for a long time! Now, thanks to the awesome folks at Scream Factory, it was released today with all the extras you have come to expect from this amazing label! I can’t wait to watch it in all its remastered glory!

Good things came in the mail today! NECA has been hitting it out of the park with some of their recent figures and there was no way I was passing up a chance to have a Dr. Loomis action figure in the collection! My Ultimate Michael Myers & Dr Loomis 2-Pack arrived today, and it is awesome!
My Coffee Shop of Horrors order has arrived! Been shopping from this great horror themed online coffee store for years! Best part is, it’s not just gimmicky names, but their coffee blends are really delicious, and they have a large variety. I ordered two of my favorites, Reanimator, a South American and Indonesian blend and Le Petit Mort, which is a blend of sweet medium roast Colombian Supremo coffee mixed with French vanilla. Yum!

Good things came from Amazon today! One of my favorites from the 80s and one of the best of the Jaws rip-offs, Alligator has finally made it to Blu-Ray, and it’s 4k as well! Directed by Lewis Teague (Cujo) and written with loads of wit by John Sayles (Piranha, The Howling) and Frank Ray Perilli, Alligator is an 80s cult classic that has been waiting for a decent release for decades! Now, thanks to the awesome folks at Scream Factory, it was released today with all the extras you have come to expect from this amazing label! I can’t wait to watch it in all its remastered glory!

Good things came from Amazon today! One of my favorites from last year that I finally picked up on Blu-Ray! The Last Matinee is a love letter to both Dario Argento and 80s slashers. Directed by Maximiliano Contenti, from his script with Manuel Facal, South American horror finds young student Ana (Luciana Grasso) working the night shift at a rundown movie theater, where she and her father are the projectionists. While a sub-par horror flick plays to a small, disinterested audience, Ana studies in the projection booth, unaware a killer (Ricardo Islas) is stalking the theater and has started to kill its patrons. Will Ana, or any of them, make it to the end credits? (Full review HERE)
Ordered this awesome Godzilla vs Biollante tee shirt from the equally awesome folks at Cavity Colors! It arrived earlier this week! One of the more original and stranger of the Heisei Godzilla flicks and features his only plant opponent in the entire series…so far! A personal favorite and a really cool shirt!
Ordered this awesome Godzilla vs Hedorah (The Smog Monster) 50th Anniversary tee shirt from the equally awesome folks at Cavity Colors! It arrived today! I remember back in 71 when this flick came out and played at the State Theater in Jersey City, NJ. My folks didn’t want to drive down there to take me to see it and I was one bummed kid. LOL!
MonsterZero NJ’s Movie Madhouse wishes everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! OK, so there aren’t a lot of horror films set on Turkey Day, but here’s a few, even if they aren’t all classics. Grindhouse for the obvious reason of enjoying Eli Roth’s legendary faux trailer and Galaxy of Terroris a personal addition, because I saw it on Thanksgiving night, 11/26/1981 at my beloved Oritani Theater in Hackensack, N.J. Have a happy and be safe! Gobble, gobble!
