“Wolf Guy” Blu-ray Review

May 21, 2017 Blair Hoyle

It should come as no surprise that Wolf Guy: Enraged Lycanthrope is an incredibly weird movie. Aside from its bizarre title, the film — which is based on a Japanese manga — is filled with […]

“Lake Bodom” Review

May 18, 2017 Blair Hoyle

It seems that every few decades, slasher films undergo a drastic change. What formally began in the 1970s came to a close in the early 1990s. What began with Scream eventually ended in the 2000s […]

“Good Morning” Blu-ray Review
