"The Acid King" Blu-Ray Review (Wild Eye Entertainment)
The true story of Ricky Kasso and the crime that launched the nation's "Satanic Panic" during the summer of 1984.
Directors Dan Jones and Jesse P. Pollack dig beneath the lurid books and scare tactic media coverage to tell the definitive true story of Ricky Kasso, an American teenager who murdered his friend, Gary Lauwers, in an alleged "Satanic sacrifice" during the summer of 1984 in Long Island New York. That crime, and the public and media treatment of the event, helped birth the brief but dangerous 'satanic panic' of mass hysteria which gripped the United States in the 1980s and 90s. Based on the best-selling book The Acid King, by Jesse P. Pollack and published by Simon & Schuster. This Special Edition Blu-ray features hours of additional bonus content that takes you deeper into the film and the true crime case that inspired it.

"Desperate Hours" Blu-Ray Review (MVD Rewind)
MICHAEL BOSWORTH IS LOOKING FOR A PLACE TO CALL HOME... JUST FOR A FEW HOURS.
From Academy Award®-winning director Michael Cimino* comes this taut psychological thriller about a family held hostage in their own home. Starring Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler), Oscar® winner Anthony Hopkins** (The Silence of the Lambs), Mimi Rogers (Someone Who Watch Over Me) and Kelly Lynch (Road House), this nail-biting action film grabs you by the throat and leaves you gasping in terror. Prepare yourself. The Desperate Hours have begun.
In dire need of a hideout, escaped convict Michael Bosworth (Rourke) uses his charming smile to gain entry into the posh home of Nora and Tim Cornell (Rogers and Hopkins) and their two children. While waiting for his beautiful lawyer-turned-accomplice (Lynch) to arrive, Bosworth's smile soon explodes into homicidal rage when the Cornells desperately try to fight back. Holding the family at gunpoint and ruthlessly pitting husband against wife, Bosworth's fury escalates into a shocking night of terror and cold-blooded murder. Finally, the family is forced to take a stand that will either destroy them...or unite them as never before.

"Voyage Into Space" Blu-Ray Review (Ronin Flix)
Experience the far-out exploits of JOHNNY SOKKO AND HIS FLYING ROBOT as they battle the vile minions and colossal monsters of Emperor Guillotine.
Do you remember Voyage Into Space - the story of a boy and his flying robot - on afternoon broadcasts of the 3:30 Movie or 4:30 Movie when you were a kid? Finally, this missing link in the adventures of Johnny Sokko comes to home video for the first time in this Blu-ray release! Experience the far-out exploits of a young secret agent with the Unicorn Peacekeeping Organization as he battles the vile minions and colossal monsters of Emperor Guillotine, extraterrestrial dictator of the nefarious Gargoyle Gang! Joining the fight is an atomic-powered giant robot, armed with a fantastic array of superweapons, which only Johnny can command via a unique remote control wristwatch! This original compilation movie, assembled by American International Television from episodes of the Toei Company tele-series Johnny Sokko and His Flying Robot, was a beloved favorite for scores of kaiju-crazy kids across the US in the '70s. From the makers of Gigantor and Kamen Rider, Voyage Into Space is part James Bond, Jonny Quest, and Ultraman, shaken - not stirred - with over-the-top plots, oddball villains, outrageous creatures, outré special effects, outlandish action, topped with an offbeat jazz combo score, resulting in a mind-bending adventure in all its English-dubbed glory! If you're reliving memories or creating new ones, let's take off on a Voyage Into Space! - August Ragone, author of "Eiji Tsuburaya: Master of Monsters"

Patreon Pick "Snatch" Review
STEALIN’ STONES AND BREAKIN’ BONES
The second film from British director Guy Ritchie. Snatch tells an obscure story similar to his first fast-paced crazy character-colliding filled film “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.” There are two overlapping stories here – one is the search for a stolen diamond, and the other about a boxing promoter who’s having trouble with a psychotic gangster.

You Ain't Seen!? "Knightriders" Blu-Ray Review (Shout! Factory)
The members of a traveling Renaissance Faire, who saddle up on motorcycles instead of horses, ride from town to town to stage medieval jousting tournaments with combatants in suits of armor and wielding lances, battle-axes, maces and broadswords. The spectacle of this violent pageant soon garners national attention, much to the dismay of the current king of this Camelot. A challenger to his throne arises as they try to maintain their fairytale existence in a world wrought with corruption.
Written and directed by George A. Romero (The Night Of The Living Dead series) and starring Romero regulars Ed Harris (Creepshow), Tom Savini (Dawn Of The Dead), John Amplas (Martin), Patricia Tallman (Monkey Shines) and Ken Foree (Dawn Of The Dead), this “vastly underrated elegy to idealism and rugged individualism” (TV Guide) offers “a compelling reworking of Arthurian legend [and] remarkable action scenes in the process” (The Onion A.V. Club)!
