"Dirty Work" Blu-Ray Review (Olive Films)
REVENGE IS A DISH BEST SERVED DIRTY.
Unemployed and recently dumped, Mitch and his buddy Sam start a revenge-for-hire business to raise the $50,000 that Sam’s father needs to get a heart transplant. The dirty duo brings down a movie theater manager and hires hookers to pose as dead bodies during a live TV ad. When a wealthy developer hires the guys to trash a building (so that he can have it condemned), problems arise and a feud ensues.

"Midnight" Blu-Ray Review (Severin)
when the clock strikes death.
A decade after co-writing NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, writer/director John Russo gathered members of George Romero's Pittsburgh crews to film a new shocker fueled by equal parts grisly grindhouse jolts and '80s satanic panic: Fleeing her pervy alcoholic stepfather (Lawrence Tierney of RESERVOIR DOGS infamy), a hitchhiking teen (Melanie Verlin) is abducted by a family of crazed homicidal rednecks for an ordeal of graphic butchery, shag carpet and devil worship. John Amplas (MARTIN) co-stars in this "greasy, grimy guilty pleasure" (DVD Talk) featuring gore effects by Tom Savini and executive produced by Sam Sherman (DRACULA VS. FRANKENSTEIN) - released in some US markets as BACKWOODS MASSACRE and seized in the UK as a Section 3 'Video Nasty' - now scanned in 4K from the negative of the long-rumored uncut version with all-new Special Features.

"A Day of Judgment" Blu-Ray Review (Severin)
The night HE came to collect his own
From Earl Owensby Studios - the South's biggest producer/distributor of '70s/'80s regional horror and exploitation hits - comes what may be the most obscure and bizarre slasher movie of the entire godless genre: In a 1930s small town rife with lust, corruption and sin, a mysterious figure wielding a scythe arrives to cut an unholy swath of murder, madness and moralizing that may lead straight to Hell. William T. Hicks (DEATH SCREAMS), Brownlee Davis (WOLFMAN), Jerry Rushing (FINAL EXAM) and Harris Bloodworth star in this "early '80s oddity worth seeing as something very different" (The Slasher Report) produced by Earl Owensby (TALES OF THE THIRD DIMENSION) and Worth Keeter (L.A. BOUNTY), now scanned in 2K from the IP for the first time ever.

"Threshold" Blu-Ray Review (Arrow Video)
A curse tests the bonds of blood on a cross country road trip that will ravage their souls if the spell can't be broken
When a phone call from out of the blue brings Leo (Joey Millin) back into contact with his sister, Virginia (Madison West), long estranged from her family due to years of drug abuse, he arrives to find her alone in a bare apartment in the midst of an apparent overdose. After the convulsions and nausea subside, Virginia insists to Leo that she has been clean for 8 months due to the help of a mysterious group. She confides to her cynical brother that her edginess and paranoia actually stem from a sinister ritual conducted by the group that took her in at her lowest and eventually revealed themselves to be a cult. This curse bound her emotions and physical sensations to a man she has never met before. With his marriage on the rocks, Leo has his own demons to face. Nonetheless, he is reluctantly persuaded by Virginia to embark on a cross-country road trip to track down this shadowy stranger under the caveat that if he's nowhere to be found and it's all in her head, she'll go to rehab. However, as their date with destiny draws nearer, Leo begins to suspect his sister's tall tale might have some substance. Threshold, the second feature from co-directors Powell Robinson and Patrick R Young, following their debut Bastard (2015), was improvised and shot on two iPhones over the course of a 12-day road trip with a crew of just three. The result is an inventive and compelling psychological thriller with hints of the supernatural that recalls such indie cult classics as Ben Wheatley's Kill List (2011) and Justin Benson And Aaron Moorhead's Resolution (2013).
