Blu-ray Review “Rampage: Capital Punishment”

“Rampage: Capital Punishment”, which is a decent follow-up to the first film. It is more crazy yet at the same time more subdued

Blu-ray Review “Without Warning”

This film is not the greatest entry to come out the 80′s. The aliens looks laughable but for the budget they had in the film, it is acceptable

The film is still good for a few laughs and is quite of fun but not really one of my favorites.
