Hotel of the Damned Movie Review

Nov 22, 2016 No Comments

It doesn’t take Captain Obvious to point out the deficiencies in accommodations and service at Hotel of the Damned. The name tells you that much. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. There’s a story to tell. You’re in for a treat with this delicious take on cannibalism, helmed by Romanian director Bobby Barbacioru. Available […]

RWD Movie Review

Oct 24, 2016 1 Comment

Star. Director. Cinematography. Sound. Editing. Effects. Score … The list goes on. In fact, filmmaker Matt Stuertz wears so many hats he gives Dr. Seuss’ Bartholomew Cubbins a run for his money. But we’re here to talk about RWD, not children’s literature. And Matt, save for co-star/co-writer Adam Hartley, is a virtual one-man show in […]

Trick or Treat Taglines: Five B-Movie Gems to watch this Halloween

Oct 04, 2016 No Comments

Most holidays boast a rather benign greeting of sorts. Think “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Hanukah.” But only Halloween boasts the combination of innocence and mischief rolled into “Trick or Treat.” Let’s face it: the implication is you give me candy … or else. Nearly everyone has experienced the “or else,” be it soaped windows, toilet-papered […]

Dark Angel: The Ascent Movie Review

Sep 07, 2016 No Comments

So, my clairvoyant editor says with a smirk, “This is the long-awaited Blu-Ray release” of Dark Angel: The Ascent, available next week from Full Moon Features. Long-awaited as in 22 years, seeing as how its theatrical release was in 1994, just a year after Clinton (that’s Bill, not Hill) assumed the presidency. Well, patience is […]

Feed the Devil Movie Review

Aug 02, 2016 1 Comment

You draw three conclusions while watching Feed the Devil, directed and co-written by Max Perrier: Jared Cohn, the male lead (would-be marijuana magnate Marcus), is nearly invulnerable. He’s pierced by traps, bones, knives; clubbed over the head; spits up blood for the last third of the movie; and yet keeps on keeping on. Strange. The […]

The Perfect Husband Movie Review

Jul 20, 2016 No Comments

The film crew on The Perfect Husband had every reason to feel good after the wrap. They had a pretty good script, a visionary director in Lucas Pavetto, a gorgeous setting and two attractive leads in Gabriella Wright (as Viola) and Bret Roberts (as her husband, Nicola). It’s a shame, then, that a bit of […]

All Girls Weekend Movie Review

Jun 20, 2016 No Comments

Spoiler alert: All Girls Weekend stinks. In fact, had this been All Girls Nanosecond, it still would have been a nanosecond too long. Written and directed, if you can call it that, by Lou Simon, this horrible horror story suffers fools from the get-go. Four former high school classmates get together for a weekend in […]

Fever Movie Review

Jun 09, 2016 No Comments

Raphael Neal, the French actor turned auteur, shows admirable restraint and grace with Fever, his film festival darling loosely based on the Leopold and Loeb murder that resulted in a fascinating trial that captivated America in the 1920s. As with that crime, two well-to-do students commit a murder for nothing more than the thrill of […]

Dead Letters Book Review

May 26, 2016 No Comments

Sadly, I’m not particularly familiar with Conrad Williams, the British author whose award-winning works in the horror and fantasy genres have earned him acclaim and distinction. Heard of him, yes. Read him, no. And that’s still the case, save for the introduction to Dead Letters, a short-story anthology Williams conceived and edited. In it, he […]

Blood Rush Movie Review

Apr 12, 2016 1 Comment

Ahhhh, we love us some Michael Madsen. Is there anything scarier, more shocking, frigidly colder in cinematic history than Reservoir Dog’s Vic Vega, aka Mr. Blonde, mutilating a cop while singing/dancing along to “Stuck in the Middle with You”? Conscience? Uh, no. But we digress, except to say Madsen is back — sort of — […]
