Home Market Releases for February 9th, 2016

February 8th, 2016

Grandma

It's a strange week on the home market, as we have a monster release coming out, Spectre. There are also four or so releases that are contenders for Pick of the Week. But after that, there's a huge drop in quality and we quickly reach releases that are not even worthy of being fillers.

Home Market Releases for June 9th, 2015

Featured TV on DVD Review: Monsters: The Complete Series

April 20th, 2014

Monsters is a horror anthology show that ran for three seasons and was a sequel of sorts to Tales from the Darkside, which I previously reviewed. The final season of that show was weak, but can this series perform better throughout its three-year run? More...
