"Giallo Essentials Black Edition" Blu-Ray Review (Arrow Video)
While the release of Dario Argento's The Bird with the Crystal Plumage gave rise to a glut of imitators, there was more to the giallo than just shameless copycats setting out to ape a rigid formula. This volume of Giallo Essentials celebrates the range and breadth of the genre with three lesser-seen films from its early 1970s heyday. In Silvio Amadio's Smile Before Death, familicide with a sprinkling of Oedipal love is the order of the day when teenager Nancy returns home to discover the apparent suicide of her mother, and quickly comes to suspect that her stepfather and his mistress are to blame. Next, Horny priests and self-flagellating nuns abound in Francesco Mazzei's The Weapon, the Hour, the Motive, as police commissioner Franco Boito investigates the brutal murder of a young clergyman, only to enter into an affair with the dead man's lover. Finally, in Giuseppe Bennati's The Killer Reserved Nine Seats, an assortment of wealthy degenerates - including Italian cult mainstays Andrea Scotti and Howard Ross - answer the summons of an eccentric nobleman and assemble in the theatre attached to his ancestral home, only to find themselves trapped in the decaying building while a savage killer picks them off Agatha Christie-style! With gory murders, wanton debauchery and left-field plot twists a-plenty, all three of these oft-overlooked gialli are restored in 2K from their original camera negatives - including brand-new, Arrow-exclusive restorations of Smile Before Death and The Weapon, the Hour, the Motive - alongside a range of in-depth bonus features.

"The Last Broadcast" Blu-Ray Review (101 Films)
A film crew ventures into the forest in search of the mythical 'Jersey Devil'.
In 1995 a four-man team from the cable-access program Fact or Fiction braved the desolate New Jersey Pine Barrens determined to deliver a live broadcast of legendary monster, the Jersey Devil. Only one came out alive. The lone survivor was sentenced to life in prison, but filmmaker David Leigh is convinced that he's innocent. Could the Jersey Devil still haunt the barrens?
101 Films presents trailblazing thriller The Last Broadcast (1998). Released on Blu-ray for the first time, Stefan Avalos and Lance Weiler's chilling feature debut is a landmark in the history of the found footage genre.

Bissette, and a booklet with expert writing on the film and the found footage genre from the directors of feature documentary "The Found Footage Phenomenon" (2021).

Patreon Pick "Fury" Blu-Ray Review
WAR NEVER ENDS QUIETLY.
In the last months of World War II, as the Allies make their final push in the European theatre, a battle-hardened U.S. Army sergeant named ‘Wardaddy’ commands a Sherman tank called ‘Fury’ and its five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Outnumbered and outgunned, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.

1980 "The Last Hunter" Blu-Ray Review (Code Red)
A Code Red Release – War is Hell... and to carry out his top-secret mission, one soldier will make a deal with the Devil. Italian fright-master Antonio Margheriti (Cannibal Apocalypse) turned to the horrors of war for this explosive action film set near the end of the Vietnam conflict. Following the grisly suicide of his shell-shocked friend, Captain Harry Morris (David Warbeck, Tiger Joe, Hunters Of The Golden Cobra, The Ark Of The Sun God) accepts one final mission: to go behind enemy lines and destroy a Viet Cong radio tower broadcasting anti-American propaganda to US troops. Aided by a ragtag squadron of commandos and shadowed by a beautiful photojournalist (Tisa Farrow, Zombie, Some Call it Loving, Search and Destroy), Morris carries out his search and destroy mission with extreme prejudice, straight into the heart of darkness. Also starring genre vets John Steiner (The Ark Of The Sun God, Hunters Of The Golden Cobra, Cut And Run), Tony King (Cannibal Apocalypse, Tiger Joe, Raiders Of Atlantis). Made in the wake of the success of The Deer Hunter and shot on Philippine locations left over from Apocalypse Now, The Last Hunter is an over-the-top example of Italian exploitation filmmaking at its most shameless...and unforgettable.

1980 "He Knows You're Alone" Blu-Ray Review (Scream Factory)
"Terrifiying and bloodcurdling" – John Stanley, Creature Features
Now you see him. Now you don't. The face of a killer appears out of the darkness and just as quickly disappears. A young woman has an eerie feeling someone is stalking her. Another beauty steps into a shower ... and a bathroom door handle slowly turns. We're in slasher-flick territory – and also in a rare realm of film history, because screen icon Tom Hanks makes his movie debut in this shocker.
The up-and-coming legend plays the brief supporting role of Elliot, a psych major whose musings about the nature of fear reinforce the tone of this twisted tale about a sicko who targets brides-to-be ... and a detective who scrambles to stop the carnage. Wedded bliss can be very short-lived when He Knows You're Alone.

1980 "Saturn 3" Blu-Ray Review (Scream Factory)
Some “thing” is wrong on Saturn 3
Adam (Kirk Douglas) and Alex (Farrah Fawcett) are two scientists stationed deep beneath the barren surface of Saturn's third moon, Titan. They live together in idyllic isolation in a space-age Eden, seeking new forms of food for an exhausted planet Earth. Their perfect world is interrupted when Benson (Harvey Keitel) arrives as Saturn goes into eclipse and cuts off communication with the rest of the solar system. Aided by his 'helper robot' Hector, James reduces life to one single purpose…survival. The robot becomes violently unmanageable. For Adam and Alex, their only hope is to flee, but the homicidal robot stands in their way. Produced and directed by legendary filmmaker Stanley Donen (Singin’ In The Rain, Charade and Seven Brides For Seven Brothers), Saturn 3 is a pulse-pounding study in sci-fi suspense!
