Killer Nun (Blu-ray)
by Ian Jane

The Movie:

Swedish sex bomb Anita Ekberg (La Dolce Vita, Fangs Of The Living Dead) plays Sister Gertrude, a nun who, since having a tumor removed, has suffered a chemical imbalance in her brain. This causes her no shortage of pain in her cranium. Her condition has resulted in a pretty serious morphine addiction, as she uses the drug constantly to ease the soreness in her head. Unfortunately for those who come into contact with Sister Gertrude, while it may ease her pain, it also causes her to go on murder sprees every once in a while.

One day, while assisting a doctor with an operation, things go wrong and she's all of a sudden finding herself compelled to axe the plug out of the patient's life support.

Holocaust (Blu-ray)
by DVD Savant

After (Blu-ray)
by Ryan Keefer

The Movie:

I'm not entirely sure what I was thinking when I said I wanted to review the 2019 film After. Maybe because I've been exposed to so much kid's programming lately I needed a palate cleanser, but not like this. It's like when you've walked 50 miles in early August, and your only source of hydration is pepper sauce. Who does that to themselves? Well, this guy.

The film is based on a 2014 novel written by Anna Todd, and it apparently took four people to adapt it into a screenplay, including Jenny Gage (All This Panic), who directed. Tessa (Josephine Langford, Wish Upon) is an innocent girl with good grades who moves to college with the help of her mom (Selma Blair, Cruel Intentions), who becomes immediately suspicious of Tessa's room...Read the entire review »
