Apprentice to Murder (1988) Blu Ray (Arrow)

An adolescent Chad Lowe becomes enraptured by Donald Sutherland's Pow-wow faith healer in this interesting, if flawed, hard-to-pigeonhole period horror drama. Mia Sara also stars as Lowe's smart, seductive girlfriend.

Rawhead Rex (1986) Clive Barker adaptation Blu Ray (Arrow)

This George Pavlou-directed adaptation of a short story from Barker's Books of Blood anthology is an inept folk-horror but can be enjoyable when taken as a cheesy monster-on-the-loose flick. The rubbery creature is laughable and the performances are very uneven.
