Last House in the Woods (Il Bosco Fuori) (2008)

"While it is slow at the beginning, about 50 minutes into the film it turns up the volume of gore, nastiness, blood soaked babes and just pure demented scenes. However, the poor dubbing and terrible lighting really detract from most of the film. Also, just"

Dark Floors (2008)

"One of the best GHOST HOUSE UNDERGROUND films and one that actually has some general frights and the atmosphere is great. Plus, with a host of special features make this worth checking out."

Putevoy obkhodchik (Trackman) (2008)

"It isn't bad. It keeps you guessing as to what's happening and the set and the atmosphere are damn creepy. But much like many of the GHOST HOUSE UNDERGROUND films, the dubbing is terrible - straight out of SPEED RACER terrible."

Brotherhood of Blood (2007)

"Wow, what a waste. To think they hired both Sid Haig and Ken Foree and only to squander their talent and give us a craptacular vampire flick that is about as scary as watching bread bake is just a shame. The positive is that this has the most special feat"

Substitute ()

"Well, much like many of these DVDs from the GHOST HOUSE UNDERGROUND it is a foreign film so that means we are getting a bad dubbing. Unfortunately, THE SUBSTITUTE is just a really bad film with no new ideas and a cast of kids that I wanted to kill myself"

Room 205 (Kollegiet) (2007)

"ROOM 205 isn't scary, it's a bit spooky and some of the music creeps you out at times but because this is a foreign flick, the voice-overs are terrible %u2013 they seem to have used the same people that do the animation voice-overs at least for the male r"

Dance of the Dead (2008)

"This one is the best of the bunch of GHOST HOUSE UNDERGROUND. The best plot, the best acting, the best special effects and the best extras by far. And for undead film lovers this will be on you will definitely want to check out."

The Express (2008)

Body of Lies (2008)

RocknRolla (2008)

"There's just a lingering sense that, in his eagerness to get to the "good stuff" of character riffs and general coolness, Ritchie neglects plot and pacing. By its own standards, then, ROCKNROLLA as a movie is a proper player, but not quite a true rocknrol"

Class of 1999 (1990)

"Given the problems with the film's digital transfer and the lack of special features, the DVD is poor. But the film itself is a lot of fun and still laughably enjoyable."

The Thing (1982)

Postal (2007)

Terminator - The Sarah Connor Chronicles: The Complete First Season (2008)

House of the Dead (2003)

The Scorpion King 2: Rise of a Warrior (2008)
