CULT CORNER: Argento’s ‘Phenomena’ is a crazy classic for Italian horror fans

CULT CORNER: Argento’s ‘Phenomena’ is a crazy classic for Italian horror fans

The term “master of horror” is not one that should be thrown around lightly. There are many icons in the horror genre, along with legendary directors, but true masters of horror are not nearly as abundant. Dario Argento, though, is truly a master. He is a director that has not only created some of the […]

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Perfect Dark’ is a nearly perfect N64 shooter for ‘Goldeneye’ fans

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Perfect Dark’ is a nearly perfect N64 shooter for ‘Goldeneye’ fans

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Killer Instinct Gold’ isn’t polished, but still shines as an N64 fighter

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Killer Instinct Gold’ isn’t polished, but still shines as an N64 fighter

In the ‘90s, fighting games were king in both the arcades and home consoles and, while it certainly seemed like the “Mortal Kombat” and “Street Fighter” franchises ruled the roost, there were a few others that stood out. 1995’s “Killer Instinct” on the Super Nintendo was one of them.

CULT CORNER: Step into ‘The Void’ for ’80s sci-fi/horror done right in 2017

CULT CORNER: Step into ‘The Void’ for ’80s sci-fi/horror done right in 2017

Science fiction and horror are a wonderful pairing in a film when done right. When done wrong, though, it can lead to a mess filled with CGI effects and bad writing that will eventually wind up as “Mystery Science Theater 3000” fodder. Thankfully, “The Void” gets the pairing perfect and checks a lot of boxes […]

CULT CORNER: New Blu-ray gives Italian slasher ‘Madhouse’ the ‘nasty’ release it deserves

CULT CORNER: New Blu-ray gives Italian slasher ‘Madhouse’ the ‘nasty’ release it deserves

Italy has delivered an onslaught of classic horror movies over the years but, as with any region, some slipped through the cracks.
