Neca - Cult Classics series 5 - Leatherface

.
Continuing with my coverage of all things Texas Chain saw Massacre I will be doing a review on what's easily the best Leatherface figure in the 7 inch scale.  Neca's Cult Classics line has been absent from shelves for years now which is a real shame.  By the fifth series (made up of Ash, Leatherface, Jigsaw, and Hannibal) the company had really hit their stride and were delivering great sculpts and highly requested characters.  This was the first time this particular version of Leatherface had been updated since McFarlane's initial Movie Maniacs release.  What we were given was a more accurate and better articulated figure with a superior sculpt.

Nekromantik is back! Cult Epics is set to give the controversial film the (limited) blu-ray treatment

I'm sure fans are anxious to get the whole Titan Video masquerade wiped from their memory.  Cult Epics is planning on making that notion a real possibility.  This October fans will be able to retire the ol' Barrel Entertainment DVD and pick up a brand new limited edition set of the infamous film.  You read that right, this October you'll be able to curl up next to the one you love and watch Nekromantik in high definition.  That's romance right there.


Specs after the break!

Ginger Snaps

Production Year: 2000
Release Date: 07/22/2014
Studio: Scream Factory
Director: John Fawcett

Over the last few decades the horror genre has been flush with vampires, zombies, and crazed killers. But what of the Werewolf?  When will this cursed beast finally get it's due?   Over the last twenty or so years I could probably count the number of good werewolf flicks on one hand, and that's a really pity as creature has such strong mythos.  Ginger Snaps takes this legend and uses it as an allegory for puberty.  Think about werewolves for a moment; Mood swings, weird cravings, hair in strange places.  If you're not having flashbacks of middle school seek help.  The film takes an age old monster and adds a very original twist breathing a bit of new life into the werewolf subgenre.
