Night of the Creeps [Blu-ray] [1986] [US Import] <b>Blu-ray</b> ~ Jason Lively
4.0 out of 5 stars The Creeps!, 28 Aug 2014
Night Of The Creeps is a typical 80's horror. It has cheesy stock characters, gloopy effects and a silly story but it is a heck of a lot of fun! Two desparate teenagers accidentally release a zombie plague in their home town. With the help of a haunted police officer and a handy flame thrower they set about saving the town from being over run by these shuffling beasties!!

The acting is as you would expect, over the top but with a tongue firmly in cheek. New ground is not broken here, but when it seems everyone is having such a laugh what does it matter?

The effects have that delightfully sticky, bright look which can only work in this sort of film. The action is thick… Read more

The Innkeepers [Blu-ray] Blu-ray ~ Sara Paxton
Ti West is a master of atmosphere. He has a canny ability to make his settings feel authentic and real. He acheived this with House of The Devil but surpassed that with The Innkeepers.

Throw in a couple of obscure and slightly random characters and you have here a fairly effective horror film.

The film takes its time to build atmosphere and character. The two… Read more
Star Wars: The Complete Saga [Blu-ray] [1977] <b>Blu-ray</b> ~ Harrison Ford
5.0 out of 5 stars The complete set, 20 Aug 2014
An epic saga deserves an epic boxset and this one delivers. All six films remastered with perfect sound and visual quality and then an array of extra features to keep most fans happy for hours afterwards. In fairness not everything in the set is brand new but there is enough to keep you entertained.

The films vary in quality and everyone has there own opinions on each one. For me the worst is Attack of The Clones, it's garish, cheesy and not very interesting. Even the final battle lacks some sort of spark. The often derided part one, The Phantom Menace, is not all that bad and whilst it gets bogged down with some boring political battles it has some stunning scenery and action… Read more
