I've got the Starz add on through Amazon. Video quality has been good. Worth a try.

We just talked about this on the 13th. When I complained about Shudder having an Android app but not the Android TV app you told me:

Starz released the S2 premiere of Ash vs Evil Dead early on their streaming services and on demand. Otherwise it premiers Oct. 2nd. If you haven't watched it yet, it's awesome! And not just plain old awesome. But Ash-tastically awesome!

But with Android one might want to check ever so once in a while. You can have multiple versions of an APK such as one that is for Android TV.

Another thing about the difference between a regular Android layout and one that will work with Android TV is to compare the Shudder screenshots with the 247 Horror screenshots on Google Play. The Shudder layout is pretty much for touchscreen and of course works on a PC where you touch with a mouse cursor. 247 Horror is laid out regardless of screen orientation with a top bar that you can move left to right on the controller to select and then up and down to for different titles. This will work with either touchscreen or gamepad. The latter of course works with other devices like BD players, Roku, etc.

Some of the companies may have begun as web only. And in a lot of cases companies get screwed over by bad contract designers who act like they know what they are doing but really don't.

Some cool flicks Bob! I haven't seen Slugs and Terror Train in a long time! Baskin is a crazy Turkish film that had some wtf moments! I never seen Microwave Massacre so you have to let me know how it is!

I last saw Slugs on VHS in the late 80's and remember it being a fun horror comedy, and of course Terror Train is a classic 80's Jamie Lee Curtis slasher, which I recall was not nearly as good as Halloween but far better than Prom Night.

Both Baskin and Microwave Massacre are blind buys, I'll be reviewing them all in October!

Slugs is a fun creature feature kinda like The Nest! Are those the new Vestron Video's on BD Bob? If so those releases are awesome looking!


I finally bought Ghost Ship on BD, along with house of wax and return to house on haunted hill on the cheap for $9 and some change. Ghost Ship has lossless audio but the other two lossy sound. Not bad for the money imo.

Ghost Ship is great, not without flaws for sure but overall a super fun flick. House on Haunted Hill was so good until like the last 25 min when the CG kicks in. Geoffrey Rush and Famke Janssen both rock and that had some fantastic scenes. The scene with him locked in that room and the recovered video camera footage both made an impression on me at the time.

2 more days people!!

Ash vs Evil Dead was one of the main reasons I picked up Starz

Since crazy things happen at work and we are starting to get really busy,I am not doing a list for October film watching.I have stuff I haven't gotten to from last year for starters. I will make a point to go down to Beverly Hills to see Phantasm: Ravager when it opens. Well Go USA has a list of theater locations up if you want to see it on the big screen, and of course the tall thin man says you're going. Note: He's not paying but you're still going. .
And don't forget this year we will have a fresh episode of The Exorcist every Friday on Fox.
"Do you think when you die you go to heaven no you go to "The Horned One" THO: "Wait a min, WTF. No no.. those tourist bus tours are bad enough, now some old skinny white dude is sending the undead over here. The undead stay in Atlanta not the Hollywood Hills.
Oh to have the problems of THO, so break out the Carlo Rossi and drink!
