Michael Kardos' mystery novel about a young woman attempting to uncover the mysteries of her father's alleged murder of her mother benefits from strong characterization.
Michael Kardos' Before He Finds Her might seem familiar, but his emphasis on the main character finding herself amid various identities and hideaways is the real draw; characters are strongly developed along with an interesting narrative approach.

Looking forward to American Horror Story: Hotel, or are you like me and afraid to get burned again? Here's a list of 8 things I'm hoping they'll change up for season 5. What are you hoping for?
A list of 8 things American Horror Story: Hotel needs to do this season. Hint: Lady Gaga's butt would be good.

Review of Kino Lorber's release of Black Sunday: AIP Version, which features a few censorship cuts. If you already own the uncut version, it's probably not worth a purchase.
If you don't already own Black Sunday, the AIP version is not bad at all. But if you already have a copy of the uncut version, it's probably not worth the money to shill out for this one as well. Besides some trailers, no special features are on this disc.

Graveyard Shift #3 comes back from the dead with a better issue in the series; the vampires of Jay Faerber's series are still mostly toothless, however.
A new direction and a nice black-and-white vampire sequence brings Graveyard Shift #3 back from the dead; Faerber's story still isn't very original, but it at least doesn't linger on the melodrama of the previous issues.

Reviewing the first of Dynamite Entertainment's Altered States series: Vampirella, where Nancy A. Collins flips the world to a mirror image where Vampirella is now a human traveling to a strange planet called Drakulon.
Altered States: Vampirella is more than just a way to retell Vampirella's origin story in a different universe; Collins manages to capture the fun of a regular story by changing Vampirella into a normal woman with a taste for the watery lifeblood of Drakulonians, an interesting offshoot for the series.

Blue Underground's Blu-Ray of God Told Me To is definitely recommended. Larry Cohen's film is great, and the special features are icing on the crazy sci-fi cake.
God Told Me To is a cult classic from Larry Cohen, lovingly restored to Blu-Ray from Blue Underground; the film itself is truly a delight, but the special features on this package make this disc an important one for your collection.

New Year's Evil is a really fun movie thanks to Kip Niven, and now you can own it on Blu-Ray thanks to Scream Factory! Review of the movie and the package at the link, you punks!
New Year's Evil is a lovable slasher movie about the holiday that stars Kip Niven in a role where he gets to run wild, and Scream Factory has done a great job transferring to Blu-Ray. Better, though, is the making-of featurette included with a nearly 40-minute runtime.
