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 No Comments

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 — […]

A Haunting in Cawdor Movie Review

Mar 09, 2016 No Comments

Cary Elwes deserves a better fate in A Haunting in Cawdor. Distinguished veteran of The Princess Bride, Glory, and Saw, to name a few, here Elwes elevates a script long on potential but short on results. It’s a shame, too, given such a promising start. Vivian Miller (Shelby Young) is a troubled young woman who […]

Deadly Famous Movie Review

Feb 16, 2016 No Comments

Early success in Hollywood, whether for child actors or one-hit wonders, leads more often to ostracism than Oscars. Take the case of Alan Miller. Here’s a self-professed Shakespearian actor whose career has been stuck in reverse for 20 years. Is he waiting tables? No, he’s simply growing more bitter with every passing day, even as […]

OMG… We’re in a Horror Movie!!! Review

Feb 04, 2016 No Comments

We’re all familiar with horror movie clichés. Let’s face it, fright films may be the most parodied of all genres. The Wayans brothers and their affiliates turned the Scream franchise into comedy gold with their Scary Movie collection. Cabin in the Woods ranks as both parody and classic. Slither is sensationally funny and cynical. And […]
