    Death Wish 4: The Crackdown


    Charles Bronson(BREAKOUT[1975],CHATO'S LAND) returns as urban vigilante Paul Kersey in this fourth film in the series,with Michael Winner replaced by J. L..

    The Burning Dead


    This SyFy Channel low quality horror outing from veteran Straight-To-DVD horror director Rene Perez(PLAYING WITH DOLLS,FROM HELL TO THE WILD WEST) has both Danny Trejo(PREDATORS,MACHETE) and Robert F.

Sure,it may have shorn out intestines and splashing gore but it is a blandly acted,tediously scripted,unlikable characters filled,woodenly directed celluloid outing that just makes the viewers hope that both Trejo and Lyons got paid really good.

This film plays like a John Carpenter directed "Sex Is A…
