Anyone who knows me knows I am a sucker for Japanese and Asian Cinema and Unearthed had been teasing a trinity of three that I needed to see. Yesterday, I finally got my hands on Unearthed Film’s blu-ray release of Yukihiko Tsutsumi’s 2003 film 2LDK and might I say, for as short as the film is, it is one hell of a wild ride.
2LDK stars Eiko Koike and Maho Nonami as two roommates who are competing over the same [...]
Death Game Review
While most people were staying up till midnight on New Years Eve to watch the ball drop, I had stayed up to pre-order the newest offering from Grindhouse Releasing. With such titles as The Beyond, Cannibal Holocaust, and Gone with the Pope in their collection of films, what was the next gift they would bestow on us? That would be Peter S.

Werewolves Within Review
It’s been quite some time since my last written review, so I promise to do my best to even remember how to do this.

Since I’ve been doing quite a bit of horror watching anyway, I figured it only appropriate to check in and share my thoughts on at least one new film. The movie in question today is Escape Room: Tournament of Champions.
Six people [...]
Aside from a recent return to that thing they call a movie theater after more than a year, I have really been slacking when it comes to my movie-viewing hobby. For months, films have just been stacking up all around me because, lets face it, even when I’m not watching films, I am still buying them. With no real set direction to head in, I figured what better way to re-start my film journey than with another [hopefully] good old [...]
Back when video rental stores still existed, I remember walking the aisles for what seemed like hours, hunting for the next best horror flick to watch. Now that those places have gone the way of the dinosaurs, it is almost even more difficult to choose a film for the night’s viewing. Sure, everything is at our fingertips now, but between countless streaming services to pick from and the hundreds of physical media stored on my shelves, I spend more time [...]
