Tis the season for a slew of thrillers, mostly connected to murder, including a few classics and a few possibly to be...

Director Chris Peckover's Better Watch Out (2016) is a deranged home invasion thriller with a twist that is set during the Holiday season. The film is a good looking black comedy that takes itself a bit too seriously and isn't quite as fun as it wants to be.

Better Watch Out features a strong young cast with Olivia DeJonge (The Visit), Levi Miller (Pan), Virginia Madsen, Dacre Montgomery, Ed Oxenbould (Alexander's Bad Day) and Patrick Warburton (Seinfeld).

It seems like a normal night for Ashley (DeJonge) when she babysits Luke (Miller) - a twelve year old (that has the hots for her) and that she has known for many years. Tonight is going to be different as Luke and his friend (Oxenbould) decide to scare her by staging a home invasion in order for Luke to step in as the hero and impress her. When the plan doesn't work out as expected, Luke turns into an amateur psycho and ties her up. But when Ashley's boyfriend comes looking for her, he soon ends up a prisoner too... but how far will Luke go to make his plan work?

Parts of the film are a bit far fetched as it's hard to believe that these two wimpy kids could keep two older, stronger, teens captive. The film itself has a dark humor to it with the only relatable character being Ashley. The parents (Madsen and Warburton) are poorly written characters, who squabble and bicker throughout their brief appearance in the first act and at the film's climax.

Later moments mimic Wes Craven's Scream and The Strangers a bit too much. It has some moments of violence that it eludes to instead of showing, which is tastefully done but again, the far fetched lack of realism ultimately makes the film feel too long despite its short run time.

From a production standpoint, the film isn't badly produced with a 1080p high definition transfer and a 2.35:1 widescreen aspect ratio and a lossless DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 track that is clean and clear throughout. This is a strong presentation on disc, as per usual with Well Go USA films. Also included is a standard definition DVD with similar but compressed specs.

Special Features include...

Making of Featurette

Trailers incl. Red Band Trailer

Better Watch Out is a one timer that doesn't quite hit the mark, despite the relatively strong reception it's gotten online. While Olive Dejonge does her best, Levi Miller simply isn't effective enough in the role to be taken as the amateur Norman Bates that he strives to be.

Sam Fuller's The Crimson Kimono (1959) is a post-Noir murder mystery set in Little Tokyo in Los Angeles that wants to say something about racism and is not bad ay juggling both, but the film is not able to totally resolve the two as the detectives involved (James Shigeta, Glenn Corbett) both become interested in the potential witness (Victoria Shaw), so the two sides of the film land up becoming a bit melodramatic, slightly formulaic and maybe a touch racist in the process. Still, it is smart filmmaking and Sony has decided that this Columbia release became a Twilight Time Limited Edition Blu-ray, a move that makes sense.

The film can be dark visually and even thematically, but it is not a total Noir and by 1959, the black and white film to make Noir had pretty much come to pass, so much of the footage (when not shot in unusual circumstances outdoors or for any crimes) looks a bit more modern, but the actors are cast well, act well and Fuller digs into the situation the best he can. Thus, this plays like a time capsule of race relations at times, while also seeming a little newer than its time of release.

I had not seen this one for a long time and it was not a film that stayed with me, but I caught a few things in different ways this time and realize more of what Fuller was trying to say and do here. Like any Fuller film, you should see it once. Otherwise, it is still worth a look and its ambitions show.

The 1080p 1.85 X 1 black & white digital High Definition image transfer can show the age of the materials used a little bit, but this is far superior a transfer to all previous releases of the film, though some shots seem a little bit off. Others have great depth and detail. The DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 2.0 Mono lossless mix also shows its age, but that is mostly because of the theatrical mono recording technology used at the time, meaning this is about as good as this will ever sound, though the isolated music score sounds a little better.

Extras include yet a nicely illustrated booklet on the film including informative text and yet another excellent, underrated essay by the great film scholar Julie Kirgo, while the Blu-ray adds that Isolated Music Score noted, an Original Theatrical Trailer and two featurettes: Sam Fuller Storyteller and Curtis Hanson: The Culture Of The Crimson Kimono.

I think of all the horror sub-genres, the exorcism sub genre is the toughest one to pull off. Nothing can simply add up to the frights of the original Exorcist and everything since feels like a pale imitation much like how Jaws overshadows the shark horror sub genre.

Slow paced but good looking, The Crucifixion (2016) directed by Xavier Gens (of the failed Hitman movie) offers up religious scares when its discovered that a demon can possess the same person more than once. A young woman ends up trying to connect with her Father - to whom she fears is losing a never-ending battle with the demonic forces that be.

The film stars Sophie Cookson, Corneliu Ulici, Brittany Ashworth, Matthew Zajac, Diana Vladu, and Florian Voicu. The film is from a producer of Annabelle and the writers of The Conjuring if that peaks your interest.

Presented in 1080p high definition with a 2.35:1 widescreen aspect ratio and a DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 lossless track, the film's presentation on Blu-ray disc is up to standards. Full of detail and rich colors, the film is shot and colored nicely with a clean mix that doesn't have any distracting qualities. A digital HD version is also included.

The Crucifixion: The Director's Vision featurette


A few creepy moments but all in all this movie is more likely to put you to sleep before it attempts to scares you.

Aliya, a femme fatal after crashing and stealing her boss' money (and diamond) is on the run with her lover Ruslan from the mob. However, after her news of her action reaching her former boss Mussa and he wants his money and diamond back and sends the entire mob after them. As she races for the boarder, she is not only chased by not only a mob, but other assassins, mercenaries and former allies in Salamat Mukhammed-Ali's Diamond Cartel (2017).

After Aliya (Karlygash Mukhamedzhanova) was owned and bought by the criminal boss Mussa (Armand Assante) and to be the mob's moll. She was then trained to be an assassin and kill for the mob, but after 2 years of working for a man she hated, she wanted out of the mob and decided to steal the mob's money and make a run for the boarder. It becomes an epic road trip fill with dead bodies and bullets and a final showdown for her and her lover as they reached the boarder.

This movie was like a Quentin Tarantino movie crossed with the films The Usual Suspects and The Expendables. As the story progress, there are flashbacks to the main character's tragic past and what led up to the present. This movie was filed with a bunch B-rated actors from action movies with cheesy one-liners and a twist ending. Peter O'Toole (one of his last films, dubbed by someone else!), Michael Madsen, Don Wilson and Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa also star.

The anamorphically enhanced 2.35 X 1 image looks as good as it can in the format, but the lossy Dolby Digital sound comes up a bit short. Extras include a music video, slide show and trailer.

Director Said C. Nacriri's 8 Assassins: The Beautiful, The Bad & The Ugly (2014) lands on DVD courtesy of MVD Visual. The film is definitely inspired by the films of Robert Rodriguez mixed with modern day desert epic. The money is definitely on the screen here, more than I expected, as the film is impressively shot and directed as a whole. Full of action, gunplay, and explosions this foreign film is surprisingly impressive and is sure to entertain both action movie fans and foreign film fans as well.

8 Assassins stars Mohamed Elachi, Michel Qissi, Sarah Kazemy, Affif Ben Badra, Dioucounda Koma, and Karim Saidi.

The film follows the classic heroes journey narrative structure as it centers around Amir (Elachi), a thief and bank robber at the time of his game, but when one job goes south, he ends up taking the loot and going off into the desert to flee. Amidst the sand dunes, he ends up meeting an Old Desert tribe in Morocco and eight assassins who are eager to challenge him.

Presented on standard definition DVD with an anamorphically enhanced widescreen aspect ratio of 2.35:1 and a lossy, dubbed Dolby Digital 5.1 mix or you can choose the Dolby 2.0 Stereo mix depending on your home entertainment setup. The original Arabic track isn't an option to listen to on the disc sadly. This film would definitely benefit from an HD transfer as the colors are pretty murky and compressed here, which is to be expected. No digital copy.

Special Features only include a slideshow and a trailer.

Billy Zane stars in this fun Greek zombie movie that is finally making its way onto disc. Evil In A Time Of Heroes (2009) is a zombie action comedy with that was definitely inspired by Shaun of the Dead and is directed by Yorgo Noussias. With solid effects and some interesting low budget filmmaking tricks up its sleeve, the film is pretty entertaining and fun to watch.

Taking place in both Ancient Greece and modern day, it spans a war before the living and the undead that has spanned centuries. At the center of it is Billy Zane, who is an expert at mowing down the zombies by the bunches and a handful of modern day survivors who do what they can to stay breathing.

Presented in standard definition with an anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 widescreen aspect ratio and a lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 Greek track with English subs. The film looks as good as it can in this compressed format and would definitely benefit from a HD viewing.

The Fall: Complete Collection (2013 - 2015) is an amazing new U.K. psychological thriller series with Gillian Anderson of X-Files fame that lasted three seasons and is one of the best short-run U.K. shows since The Hour. I was so impressed by the debut season that I raved about the DVD set at this link...


Now I have seen the entire series, successful enough to make it to Blu-ray in the U.S. and I think the show has far from found the huge audience it deserves. I had no idea what the makers would do after the first series, but I have to say it surprised me how far they go and that the twists and turns are not just to press buttons, but ask us to think about the situations involved when a serial killer (James Dornan, simply amazing here) is on the loose in ways you would not expect.

There is much character study here, honesty, moments of boldness and great acting that very few TV series anywhere have been this good of late. Anderson's work here is worth of Helen Mirren on Prime Suspect and this is more than just a clever killer on the loose, but about the society we live in now. Once I started watching the first scenes of Season Two, I could not stop, instantly recaptured by what was going on. This is habitual, compelling viewing and I cannot strongly recommend it enough.

The 1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image is one of the best HD-shot TV series anywhere to date and the discs here easily outperform the decent DVDs I covered a few years ago. Color, detail, depth, style and visual intent are more stark, vivid and deliver more impact. As impressive is the DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 lossless mix that really delivers some of the best surround designs I have heard from any TV series in a long time. I heard things I missed on the lossy Dolby Digital DVDs and the sound design outdoes more feature films that I already (thankfully) forgot than you would imagine. The combination is as effective as Game Of Thrones, Westworld or any other series you can come up with.

Extras include many Behind The Scenes clips, Photo Galleries and Deleted Scenes, but you might want to wait until you've watched all three seasons before looking at one second of any of them.

Game Of Thrones: The Complete Seventh Season (2017) is here and though it follows the characters well (you really have to start from the beginning to keep up with everything, no matter what), the huge hit HBO series is now finally starting to show some wear. Fans and big fans may disagree or not care, but as a non-fan who at least is impressed with its scale and ambitions, the series is reminding me at times of the lower budget footage from the 1963 Cleopatra in that there is an unintended emptiness starting to develop and even the opening scene is pushing it a bit.

This new Blu-ray set is still of the highest quality and among the best TV on Blu-ray technically released to date, but this is starting to get a bit 'soap opera' in ways it was not before. Having Diana Rigg (earning yet another generation of fans) has been the biggest critical coup the series came up with recently and it shows the smart people running the show. But even HBO knows the series has peaked, it is starting to wind down and we just found out as we were posting this coverage that the next season will take few years to complete. Thus, this is what fans will have until then. At least the money is still on the screen.

The 1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image looks just fine, though always a little more digital in nature than I would like and color schemes are toned down too often for my tastes, but the Dolby Atmos 11.1/Dolby TrueHD 7.1 sound mix is well done and always has its moments. It may not be the best 12-track I have ever heard, but it is very solid.

Extras include Digital HD Ultraviolet Copy for PC, PC portable and other cyber iTunes capable devices, while the Blu-ray adds, in this great slipcase packaging, the In Episode Guide feature, Histories and Lore (both helping the viewer keep track of things), audio commentary tracks, Behind The Scenes/Making Of featurettes From Imagination To Reality: Inside The Art Department, Fire & Steel: Creating The Invasion of Westeros and our version came with the bonus Blu-ray disc Conquest & Rebellion, offering an animated look at the Seven Kingdoms. Get the set with that disc if you can.

Once Upon a Time at Christmas (2017) is a new holiday slasher flick that reimagines Mr. and Mrs. Claus as a serial killing couple akin to the Joker and Harley Quinn. Intermixing their brutal killings with a teenage-killing subplot and procedural cop subplot, the film is a bit too derivative of other slashers and doesn't pack enough of a punch to be a cult classic.

Once Upon a Time at Christmas stars Barry Kennedy, Simon Philips, and Brook Fletcher to name a few. The film is directed by Paul Tanter (He Who Dares).

Meet Santa and Mrs. Claus: he's a one-eyed axe wielding manic and she's a curvy, bat-swinging blonde. This serial-killer couple are terrorizing the holidays in a quaint New York town and a mall with a series of brutal slayings. Though the victims seem at first random, a method behind the madness is soon uncovered as the days lead up to Christmas. As the Police intervene as well an intuitive teen is it too late to stop the killers in their tracks?

Presented in standard definition DVD with an anamorphically enhanced widescreen aspect ratio of 1.78:1 and a lossy 5.1 Dolby Digital track, the film looks and sounds as good as it can on the DVD format. The film isn't terribly shot or scored with a creepy Christmas song in the opening titles that sets the tone pretty well.

No Extras.

This odd Australian drama/sci-fi film, The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One (2017), is directed by Shane Abess (Infini) and looks surprisingly good on Blu-ray disc on a technical level but in terms of storytelling is pretty bland and slow as a turtle in places. The film does have a lot of the elements that make the genre great including space ship dogfights, prison fights, and good looking visual effects, but it can't seem to escape the feeling that something seems missing.

The film stars Teagan Croft, Kellan Lutz, Isabel Lucas, Daniel MacPherson, Luke Ford, and Rachel Griffiths.

Set in a dark future ruled by a corporation housed in a huge complex in the sky and the desolate world beneath it, Kane Sommerville (MacPherson), is a former military hero who is on the hunt to find his 11-year-old daughter, Indi (Croft), who dwells in a bunker that protects her from external threats. Teaming up with Kane is Sy (Lutz), an escaped convict and two dissolute step siblings (Lucas and Ford) all of which attempt to save the girl.

Presented in 1080p high definition with a widescreen aspect ratio of 2.35:1 and a lossless DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 track, the film looks and sounds great on Blu-ray disc. Character detail and an overall clean cinematic image are on full display here, as this is an excellent presentation of the film. As usual, RLJ Entertainment delivers a prestige HD transfer. Also included is a standard definition DVD with similar, but compressed colors and sound mix.

While it's a bit unclear if there will be more than one 'volume' in this series, The Osiris Child tries to be a profound genre film but lacks the charm and charisma to pull it off.

This year has seen a lot of great Dario Argento (Italian horror director of The Bird with the Crystal Plumage, Phenomena, Tenebre, and many others) films on high end Blu-ray disc with releases from big labels such as Synapse, Blue Underground, and Arrow Films to name a few.

However, horror fans like me have been hungry for what is arguably the director's best work - Suspiria (1977).

Now that the year is about to come to an end, the film is finally landing on disc... but there's a catch. Several different labels are releasing different versions with different transfers and different extras, so for fans, it can be a bit taxing trying to figure out which version is the most accurate representation of what the filmmaker wanted.

This review covers the Umbrella Blu-ray release, which features a 1080p 4K transfer from the original 35mm camera negative materials and dye-transfer, three-strip Technicolor version of the film.

Released just one year before John Carpenter's Halloween (1978), Suspiria is one of the most gorgeously lit films that I have ever seen and certainly one of the most well crafted horror films of all time. The Italian splatter fest stars Jessica Harper and centers around a young girl named Suzy who travels to Germany to attend a prestige ballet school. Even the moment she leaves the airport are creepy... and things get more and more wicked as the film's progresses as there's a sinister plot at this ballet school; a plot that is getting many students viciously murdered. Could Suzy be the next target?

The classic film also stars Stefania Casini, Joan Bennett, Alida Valli, Flavio Bucci, and the one and one Udo Kier (Blade, Andy Warhol's Dracula).

The presentation on this disc is truly fantastic and leaps and bounds better than previous releases on DVD and above all previous Blu-ray editions. The 1080p transfer from the 4K scan of the film features the original 2.40:1 widescreen aspect ratio and two 5.1 audio tracks including the 2012 version of the mix. At this time, we don't have the other two releases, including the must talked about Synapse version, but we hope to reveal them soon.

The transfer here is well worth the money with rich greens, reds, and blues and some scenes with different color correction completely than what was there before, namely the old Anchor Bay release. Comparing it side by side to the original transfer is shocking and it is very nice to FINALLY have a HD transfer of the film on Blu-ray. The Goblin soundtrack is front and center in the mix, however it should be noted that the version that Synapse is coming out with is 4.0 mix as opposed to this 5.1 mix.

Taylor Sheridan's Wind River (2017) is one of the best, smartest thrillers of the year, but it has the sad distinction of being the last Weinstein Company production before the scandal broke that permanently ruined one of the greatest names in top quality filmmaking since the 1980s. However, with all the great work by people here who had nothing to do with that madness, that should be ignored and the film be seen by many because it is very, very well done.

A young woman is found in the snow dead under very unusual circumstances by a local game tracker (the easily underestimated Jeremy Renner) who knows everyone around town, including Native Americans and the murder victim is part of that world. It is such a sickening, ugly crime that the FBI sends their closest agent to investigate (Elizabeth Olsen, great as usual too) though she has never dealt with such a snowy environment and has to deal with closed communities, sexism and the surprise to some that a woman would be investigating the murder of a woman.

Like Michael Apted's Thunderheart, the film wants to look at that closed world after starting out as what only seems like a straight-out thriller, but I think this film is more effective and connects things together more than just the clues and how the murder happened. It also shows that Olsen and Renner are more than formidable beyond the Superhero genre they've been so good in and this is yet more evidence of their capacities of being first-rate actors. The buzz on this film is real, which is why Wind River should be on your viewing list and will go down as one of the top films of the year.

The 1080p 2.35 X 1 digital High Definition image is easily one of the best HD shoots of the year with a fine consistent style that is very effective and enveloping, while the DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 lossless mix is one of this year's most well-recorded and effective, including music by Nick Cave. The combination melds very well.

Extras include Digital HD Ultraviolet Copy for PC, PC portable and other cyber iTunes capable devices, while the Blu-ray adds a Behind The Scenes Photo Gallery and Deleted Scenes, though more would have been nice.

Within (2016) is a low budget supernatural home invasion movie that follows a lot of the same story beats and techniques as several other haunted house movies. Focusing on creepy sounds, fishy neighbors, and plenty of jump scares, the film is fine considering what it is but isn't anything too innovative or mind blowing. The film stars Michael Vartan, Erin Moriarty, Ronnie Gene Blevins, and Nadine Velazquez. The film is directed by Phil Claydon (Lesbian Vampire Killers, Alone).

A widower John Alexander (Vartan) moves into a new house with his new wife Melanie (Velazquez) and teenage daughter Hannah (Moriarty) and finds himself the only one pleased with the move. The snoopy Hannah soon discovers that the house is haunted and that the previous occupants are very much present in the home. At the same time, a creepy homeless guy named Ray (Blevins) comes snooping around and stalking Hannah on his off time, even going as far as letting himself in uninvited. However, the ghostly presence soon gets an infatuation for Hannah and ends up killing anyone who gets in his way to win her heart.

The first act of the film isn't too bad of a setup, even if it is a bit familiar in terms of narrative, however, the second act is when things start getting silly when the ghost is revealed to have a human form (complete with SFX makeup) that is laughable. Insidious this is not.

Presented in anamorphically enhanced standard definition with a 2.35:1 widescreen aspect ratio and a lossy 5.1 Dolby Digital mix, the film looks as good as it can on DVD. The film isn't shot terribly nor does it have a terrible soundtrack, however, the film has a slightly desaturated look and not a very wide or interesting color palette.

No extras.

Finally, we have Jing Wu's Wolf Warrior II (2017 aka Wolf Warrior 2), a new Chinese action thriller that serves as a big budget sequel to the original hit of a few years ago. After being wrongfully accused and dishonorably discharged (again), Leng Feng is the Wolf Warrior, part of an elite special army. Now living in Africa he seeks to live the quiet life protecting trade ships from smugglers and pirates, but civil war breaks out he finds himself called back into action when civilians and Chinese nationals are trapped in a factory behind enemy lines ...and only Leng can rescue them.

You can take the soldier out of the army, but you can never take the army out of a soldier. After being betrayed by the country he loves and protects, Leng is still a highly trained soldier, the Wolf Warrior. A single Wolf Warrior is a one man army, he knows how to use a bullet like a hundred bullets and is able to overcome impossible odds. But Leng peaceful life is shattered when civil war rocks the country and he learns Chinese civilians are trapped in a factory behind enemy lines. He face an elite group of American mercenaries/terrorists, out numbered, out gunned and without back up or support. Leng discovers the War Lord is after a young child who is the key to the cure of a recent epidemic outbreak.

This was an action packed/martial arts movie. It was a Chinese version of Rambo mixed with Vin Diesel action movie. Actor action martial artist Wu Jing is like the next Jackie Chan/Jet Li, a Chinese super star. It is nice to see more Chinese actors are getting to play the hero role in modern movies.

The 1080p 2.35 X 1 digital High Definition, HD-shot image looks great throughout with fine detail, color and depth, while the Mandarin DTS: X 11.1 soundmix (also Dolby Atmos in some theatrical presentations) is pretty good with some great sonic moments, but a little inconsistent overall. The anamorphically enhanced DVD with lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 is fine for what it is, but nothing more. Extras include a four-part behind the scenes piece and trailers.
