DVD Shopping Bag: Iron Man 3 Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(September 24, 2013)
When last summer began, I was really at a fever pitch for Iron Man 3 and not because I was a huge Iron Man fan (movie or comic). In fact, I didn’t really love the first one or the second. I appreciated what Robert Downey Jr. brought to the role, but the

Batman Begins Audition Reel by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(September 23, 2013)
There is a new Dark Knight Trilogy Box Set arriving 9-24-13 from Warner Brothers. In that box set there appears to be new material that was not released on the multiple editions of Christopher Nolan’s Batman films. One thing that has surfaced, of interes

The Fly 1958 Blu-ray Review by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(September 20, 2013)
There are those horror films that come and go as barely a blip on the pop culture radar and no lasting impression. Perhaps it is because of the fantasy involved, transporting matter from one place to another, that allows it to endure. Maybe, just maybe, de

Doctor Who: The Ice Warriors Review by Kimberly McCall, Contributing Writer
(September 19, 2013)
For the BBC, the journey to restoring the lost Doctor Who episodes of the 1960's is far from over. Having discovered over 30 since 1970, there are still more than 100 missing from their archives. Thus, most of the Patrick Troughton years are spotty at best

Tuesday Terrors: Clive Barker finishes The Scarlet Gospels by Tim Janson, Columnist and Critic
(September 17, 2013)
Welcome back to Tuesday Terrors, Mania’s one-stop spot for all things horror. This week we have four new film reviews:

DVD Shopping Bag: Day of the Dead Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(September 17, 2013)
One of the fascinating things about George Romero’s “Dead” Trilogy (when it was still a trilogy) was how it was all made by different studios. This meant none of the music or characters could carry over from one film to the next.

The Fall of '83: Strange Invaders by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(September 16, 2013)
“Strange” is definitely the watchword for Strange Invaders, a sort-of-but-not-quite-parody of 50s science fiction movies from a decidedly 80s perspective. In some ways, it works very well as an update of the old Invasion of the Body Snatchers scenario

Star Trek: Into Darkness Blu-Ray Review by Tim Janson, Columnist and Critic
(September 15, 2013)
Director J.J. Abrams continues to blaze a new path for the Star Trek Franchise with Star Trek: Into Darkness, the sequel to his 2009 reboot. Into Darkness is a beginning-to-end fuel-injected thrill ride that manages to balance its action with diverse an

Top 13 Friday the 13th Kills on Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(September 13, 2013)
Jason Voorhees has done it all. Better yet he has done them all. An axe to the face here. A spear gun to the eye there. Hell, Jason has even been to Hell and back. Did I mention he also went into space?

New Dracula 3D Poster and Release Date by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(September 12, 2013)
It looks as if horror legend Dario Argento will final be bringing his Dracula 3D to the masses. Entertainment Weekly has released the official poster (by Anthony Palumbo) for the film and announced the released dates. Dracula 3D arrives in New York and Los

DVD Shopping Bag: Frankensteins Army Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(September 10, 2013)
There comes a time Maniacs, when one gets giddy with joy. It can come from a clip for a film or even just a a title. As titles go Frankenstein’s Army get me curious, then I saw this (clip below) and got giddy.

The Fall of '83: Revenge of the Ninja by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(September 09, 2013)
When you think “international blockbuster,” I don’t think Revenge of the Ninja is quite what you had in mind. Another product of the awful-wonderful Cannon Pictures – who went on to such cheesy action classics as Missing in Action and American Ninj

Mania Exclusive Interview: Louis Leterrier by Rob Vaux, Writer
(September 09, 2013)
Louis Leterrier was born in Paris, but studied film at NYU, and has worked largely with English language films. His directorial efforts include the Jet Li thriller Unleashed, the sequel The Transporter 2, the remake of Clash of the Titans, and the controve

The Lords of Salem Blu-Ray Review by Tim Janson, Columnist and Critic
(September 09, 2013)
I appreciate the fact that Rob Zombie has a love of horror both modern and classic, and that’s what makes this review sad to write. After seeing The Lords of Salem, and Zombie’s two ill-fated Halloween remakes, you have to wonder if this is the same g

CURSE OF CHUCKY First Film Clip by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(September 05, 2013)
Here is the first official clip from the CURSE OF CHUCKY. “Alice (Summer Howell) and Chucky want to know what’s for dinner in this first film clip for CURSE OF CHUCKY”. All I can say is stupid dumb parents. Would it be too much to ask to have an adul

The Many Adventures of Winnie The Pooh Blu-ray Review by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(September 05, 2013)
Having just recently turned two years old in 1977, The Many Adventures of Winnie The Pooh would have been an ideal film for me. If only we had the technology and screening opportunities that we do now. My parents needed their night off and probably wouldn

DVD Shopping Bag: Now You See Me by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(September 03, 2013)
When Now You See Me arrived in theaters, the trailers had a great hook to them to get our attention.

The Fall of '83: Nightmares by Rob Vaux, Movie Critic
(September 02, 2013)
Anthology films don’t get much lazier than Nightmares, which plays like the producers grabbed a few scripts from Rod Serling’s junk pile and filmed them all without bothering to read them through. We remember it now only because it features several act

S-O-R: Selling the Sizzle of Schlock by Chuck Francisco, Columnista and Critic
(August 28, 2013)
Back in the waning, halcyon days of the 1990's, the task of exposing friends to a crazy syringe of cinematic madness was a blessedly simple endeavor. An invitation was extended then accepted; couch cushions were occupied on a first come basis; VHS tape hea

THE VINCENT PRICE COLLECTION on Blu-ray! by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(August 27, 2013)
As you Maniacs know, we have been singing the praises of Shout! Factory’s new horror division Scream Factory for the past year. With unprecedented Blu-ray releases of Halloween II (see review), Halloween III (see review), Life Force, The Howling (see rev

The Summer of '83: Hercules by Rob Vaux, Writer
(August 27, 2013)
Movie review ratings really aren’t meant for the likes of Hercules, which are patently awful but oh so much fun. If you derive entertainment value out of a ridiculously bad film, does that, in fact, negate its badness? We can’t give movies like Hercule

DVD Shopping Bag: The Walking Dead Season 3 Blu-rays by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(August 27, 2013)
As AMC starts to gear us up for Season 4 of The Walking Dead, the Blu-rays for Season 3 have arrived today. I thought about how I wanted to approach reviewing Season 3 on Blu-ray. You either watch this series or you don’t. If you don’t, what the hell i

THE WICKER MAN: FINAL CUT Release by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(August 26, 2013)
No, not remake of the Wicker Man, the original! Yes, Maniacs and horror aficionados Studio Canal is releasing and Final Cut of Robin Hardy’s The Wicker Man. Sounds like the perfect treat for the fall! Check out the full details below.

The Summer of '83: Fire and Ice by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(August 26, 2013)
Conan the Barbarian created something of a dilemma for Hollywood's evil overlords. Its hard R rating was part of its appeal, but it also kept a huge portion of the marketplace -- namely prepubescent boys -- from plopping down their hard-earned milk money.

Olympus Has Fallen Blu-Ray Review by Tim Janson, Columnist and Critic
(August 23, 2013)
Olympus has Fallen is much like another recent film that I reviewed about terrorists taking over the White House, G.I. Joe: Retaliation.  Except while that film had the kind of hokum you’d expect from a project based on a cartoon and toy line, Olympus
