Hellgate on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Hellgate begins with an old man finding a weird crystal in a cave which can bring things back to life – rather handy when introduced to Lucas Carlyle (Carel Trichardt), whose daughter, Josie (Abigail Wolcott, in her one and only film) is dead. However, early tests on creatures including a dead tortoise and a live […]

The Initiation on DVD – The DVDfever Review

The Initiation is what Kelly (Daphne Zuniga) goes through as she begins her time at the Delta Rho Chi student house, but we know from the start that not all her dogs are barking after an incident she carried out with a knife in her parents’ bedroom. There’s a gardener with a burnt face and […]

Wiener-Dog on DVD – The DVDfever Review

Wiener-Dog follows the ‘adventures’ of the titular dachsund from him being introduced to us via the opening dysfunctional family (Tracy Letts and Julie Delpy) who buy him, through to concerned vet’s assistant Dawn (Greta Gerwig), plus others including film school teacher Dave Schmerz (Danny DeVito) and an elderly woman played by Ellen Burstyn. With a […]

Freejack – The DVDfever Review

Freejack is one of my all-time favourite films, even if it does have some issues that can’t be resolved, and it’s also one I never got round to reviewing, as it was in the cinema before I started imparting my missives on the internet (well, April 1992 was a time when I only had access […]

Assault On Precinct 13 Special Edition on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Assault On Precinct 13 is one of those all-time classic movies which I’ve never got round to watching before now, but with this 40th Anniversary release, I still went in knowing as little as possible, and I could nitpick in that it’s not Precinct 13, but Precinct 9, Division 13. Gang violence in rife after […]

Driller Killer Special Edition on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Driller Killer is another of those films I’m watching for the first time as it makes its Blu-ray premiere, with a number of big extras from Arrow. Beginning with the words, “THIS FILM SHOULD BE PLAYED LOUD”, it doesn’t really need to be particularly loud because it was only ever recorded in mono and the […]

Cohen and Tate on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Cohen and Tate are two hitmen, the former of which, played by Roy Schneider, a man who normally works alone, but has been partnered up with Adam Baldwin (cast in this after the director saw his performance in Full Metal Jacket). Tate is a headstrong idiot, while Cohen is cool, calm and self-assured. It’s very […]

Tina and Bobby Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Michelle Keegan Drama

Tina and Bobby is a new three-part drama from ITV which dramatises the partnership of future England captain Bobby Moore (Lorne MacFadyen) and his wife Tina (Michelle Keegan). As it’s just a trilogy of episodes, it speeds along fast to get to the wedding as well as Bobby’s promotion to Captain at West Ham United […]

Love Stalk – The DVDfever Review

Love Stalk highlights the problem a lot of us have in that we probably share too much of our lives online. Do you really need to Instagram your dinner? Well, if everyone else does… Sharon Ong (Angie Palmer) is one of the fastest-rising talents at PR Central, one of those PR companies where you sometimes […]

USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage looks at the period in World War II from March 31st, 1945 when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbour, leading to the titular ship exporting its devastating payload to Hiroshima, but it’s a so top secret a mission that they’re not getting any cover – since if they had a fleet […]
