"The Dogs of War" Blu-Ray Review (Ronin Flix)
Cry 'Havoc!' and let slip ... The Dogs of War
Christopher Walken (Pennies from Heaven, Heaven's Gate, The Deer Hunter) is a brutal mercenary who must fight the ultimate battle - against his own conscience - in this powerful action thriller with a "heart-thumping tempo" (The Hollywood Reporter). The Dogs of War is a spectacular adventure that brilliantly captures the glory - and horror - of war. Jamie Shannon (Walken) is a cynical warrior-for-hire who feels truly alive only in the heat of battle, and now he's about to take on the most challenging assignment of his career: to invade a corrupt African dictatorship and shift control to the "puppet" of a powerful British corporation. To prepare, Shannon masterfully trains and equips a squad of deadly mercenaries with the latest and most destructive tactics and military hardware. But as their explosive assault begins, Shannon finds himself embroiled in an internal conflict of his own: Will this be his greatest triumph, or has he sold his soul along with his battle expertise? Tom Berenger (Platoon, Last Rites, Major League), Paul Freeman (Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Sender, The Final Option), Hugh Millais (Images, The Wicked Lady), JoBeth Williams (Poltergeist, Teachers, American Dreamers), and Colin Blakely (Equus, Nijinsky, The Big Sleep) co-star in this explosive action film, skillfully directed by John Irvin (Hamburger Hill, Next of Kin, Raw Deal) and beautifully filmed by award-winning D.P. Jack Cardiff (The African Queen, Dark of the Sun, The Awakening). Deal). Now see this film from a brand new 2K master!

"Frankenstein's Daughter" Blu-Ray Review (Film Detective)
Some things are more beautiful in death... Especially when your name is Frankenstein!
"Look at her! She lives!"
So says Dr. Oliver Frank at the sight of his new creation, a hulking beast with the transplanted brain of a beautiful young woman. He has finally carried on the legacy of his late grandfather, the notorious Dr. Frankenstein!
The twist in Frankenstein's Daughter (1958) is that it takes place in "modern" Los Angeles, where teenagers are forever in swim gear. Even as news reports warn them about a female monster menacing the neighborhood, nothing stops these kids from partying by the poolside.
Fans of low-budget horror will see some familiar faces in the cast, including John Ashley, Harold Lloyd Jr., and former Playboy Playmate of the Month, Sally Todd (just a year after her appearance in The Unearthly). For Director Richard E. Cunha, Frankenstein's Daughter was part of a productive year where he turned out three other cult favorites: She Demons; Giant from the Unknown; and Missile to the Moon. And though Donald Murphy lacked the schlock pedigree of his director and co-stars, his thousand-watt stare makes him a perfectly evil Dr. Frank.

THE EVIL ONE HAS COME TO TAKE THE SOULS OF THE YOUNG!

"Monster Dog" Blu-Ray Review (Scorpion)
Rock legend Alice Cooper stars in one of the wildest horror films of the 1980s! When singer Vince Raven returns to his hometown to shoot a music video, he and his crew are confronted by a terrifying local legend. Packs of wild, bloodthirsty dogs seem to be on the loose attacking the population, but in fact, there s something even more monstrous and supernatural at work: a clawed, demonic beast straight from the depths of hell. Featuring two Alice Cooper songs, Identity Crisis and See Me in the Mirror, this outrageous slice of Euro horror from Claudio Fragasso, director of the beloved Troll 2, will make you think twice the next time you take your dog out for a walk.

Patreon Pick "Night Owl" Blu-Ray Review (Vinegar Syndrome)
“Jake (James Raftery) is an apathetic, post-punk vampire who spends his nights cruising seedy music dives for drugged out women to seduce and kill to satisfy his bloodlust. After murdering Zohra, a young Puerto Rican woman, Jake becomes the focus of her brother, Angel, who’s desperate to find his missing sister and fears that Jake might be involved in her disappearance…
An ode to East Village sleaze, Jeffrey Arsenault’s NIGHT OWL is an unflinchingly gritty modern day vampire story set in a world of dingy, house music playing dive bars, pizza parlors, and other drug and misery filled lower Manhattan locales. Co-starring a young John Leguizamo (The Fan, Summer of Sam) in one his earliest roles, along side Warhol superstar Holly Woodlawn, and photographed in deliberately grimy black and white 16mm, Vinegar Syndrome brings NIGHT OWL to Blu-ray for the first time, newly restored from its original 16mm negative.”

1994 "Mosquito" Blu-Ray Review (Synapse)
Millions of years of evolution have just become mankind's worst nightmare!
From the Makers of THE BLOB, PRINCE OF DARKNESS and THEY LIVE and the SPFX Team of ARMY OF DARKNESS, DARKMAN and BATMAN RETURNS comes the high-definition world premiere of this giant monster cult classic! Science-fiction becomes horrifyingly real for a park full of innocent campers, as a hideous horde of mutated mosquitos viciously attack without warning! A band of survivors flees the bloodthirsty swarm in a death-defying attempt to warn the world of the mosquito menace. Led by a brave young couple and a resourceful government agent, the group realizes their only hope is to take on the bloodthirsty bugs in an explosive final showdown! A chilling blend of sci-fi, humor and old-school horror, MOSQUITO is a tour de force of terror. Starring genre icon Gunnar Hansen (the original "Leatherface" from THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE) and the late, great Ron Asheton (founding member of the punk rock band, The Stooges), MOSQUITO is a gore-drenched tale made with traditional stop-motion and practical effects!
