Blu-ray Review: Dead Again in Tombstone
Dr. Zaius   |  

Dead Again in Tombstone banner Danny Trejo

Dead Again in Tombstone
Blu-ray | DVD | Digital
Directed by Roel Reine
Starring Danny Trejo, Jake Busey, Elysia Rotaru, Dean McDermott, Elizabeth Lavender, Elysia Rotaru
Universal Studios Home Entertainment
Release date: September 12, 2017

Dead Again in Tombstone is the sequel to the 2013 straight to video/on demand film Dead in Tombstone. In the original, Guerrero (Danny Trejo) and his half-brother Red (Anthony Michael Hall) lead a gang into a small mining town to take its gold. When the gang turns on Guerrero and leaves him for dead, he makes a deal with the Devil himself: a scenery-chewing Mickey Rourke. He gives Guerrero one day to deliver to him the souls of those who betrayed him or suffer eternal damnation. So in other words, your ordinary run of the mill satanic horror western. Considering its low budget and the oft-true stereotypes concerning straight-to-video releases, the cast made this a fun way to burn 100 minutes. Director Roel Reine (Inhumans) and star Danny Trejo return for the sequel, which was released this week.

Blood Drive 106 Header

Blood Drive

Created by James Roland
Starring Alan Ritchson, Christina Ochoa, Thomas Dominique, Marama Corlett, Colin Cunningham, Andrew Hall, Darren Kent, Renee Castle
Syfy
Air Date: Wednesday, July 19th, 2017, 10pm

First off, apologies on the lateness of this one, I was in a hotel with poor channel selection and no wifi. But alas, I was excited to get home and catch up on the craziness I missed on last week’s Blood Drive on Syfy. Last week, Grace (Christina Ochoa) had to bail out Arthur (Alan Ritchson) after a sex plague took over the Blood Drive party. Slink (Colin Cunningham) managed to escape torture and death several times, and as payment to Grace planned a stop on this week’s drive for her to get her sister back. Meanwhile, Christopher (Thomas Dominique) and his new $20 million machine eye are officially working for Heart Enterprises, but his cyborg-dominatrix girlfriend Aki (Marama Corlett) doesn’t realize (yet) that he’s an inside man. This week, the Drive continues…

Spoilers below.

Blood Drive 105-03

Blood Drive
Season 1 Episode 5: “The F…ing Dead”
Directed by Roel Reiné
Written by Harrison Weinfeld, Daniel Zucker
Created by James Roland
Starring Alan Ritchson, Christina Ochoa, Thomas Dominique, Marama Corlett, Colin Cunningham, Andrew Hall, Darren Kent, Renee Castle
Syfy
Air Date: Wednesday, July 12th, 2017, 10pm

Just look at the title for this episode and you’ll know why I love Syfy’s latest original show, Blood Drive. This team of writers assembled by show creator James Roland are clearly making entertaining television they want to see, and they know their target audience. Last week, Grace (Christina Ochoa) and Arthur (Alan Ritchson) barely escaped Kane Hill, an asylum overrun by sugar crazed inmates. Grace’s sister wasn’t there, but they did find out that Slink (Colin Cunningham) is much more than just the psychotic connoisseur of the Blood Drive. Meanwhile, Christopher (Thomas Dominique) was tortured by Heart cyborg Aki (Marama Corlett), in scenes that felt like the mutated offspring of 50 Shades of Grey and Caligula.

Check out my review of Blood Drive Episode 5 below.

Universal Prequel ‘Death Race 2’ Begins Filming In South Africa
The Movie God   |  

Death Race

Universal Pictures and director Roel Reiné (The Marine 2, The Lost Tribe) have begun principle photography on Death Race 2, the new prequel to Paul W.S. Anderson’s 2008, Death Race.

The film started shooting on February 13th in Cape Town, South Africa and will become a member of Universal Studios Home Entertainment’s DVD Originals line, which just means straight to video.

The original was actually a remake of the 1975 film, Death Race 2000. The story is similar to that of Escape from New York, and it takes place in a dystopian future where a prison inmate is offered his freedom if he takes on the persona of Frankenstein — a legendary racer who recently perished — and can win five Death Races. These races are put on by the corporations who own the prisons, and they are aired as a futuristic reality show, which brings more viewers than any other show can ever dream of, and an unbelievable amount of income.
