Fantasia 2018 Review: THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN THE BIGFOOT Falls Far Short Of Its Potential

Any director with the balls to title their film The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot has got to have a little bit of chutzpah to even attempt to do it justice. Unfortunately, first time feature director Robert...

Fantasia 2018 Review: UNDER THE SILVER LAKE, Underwhelming Story, Overwhelming Cliches

David Robert Mitchell had a critical and audience hit with his second feature film, It Follows, in 2014; so much so that his third feature was readily accepted into the Cannes feature competition this year. Obstensibly a neo-noir thriller about...

Blu-ray Review: IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS Foams With Glory

Scream Factory's love affair with John Carpenter continues with this Blu-ray relase of In the Mouth of Madness. If you're a Carpenter fan of any kind, this one is an essential addition to your collection. The film has never looked...

Blu-ray Review: MEMOIRS OF AN INVISIBLE MAN

Blu-ray Review: PIRANHA II: THE SPAWNING

Like many other great filmmakers, James Cameron got his start with Roger Corman, who's known for fostering talent. His theatrical feature film debut is strangely enough, Piranha II: The Spawning. It's a sequel to Joe Dante's (who also came out of...

Oak Cliff 2018 Review: VIRUS TROPICAL Explores The Life Of One Young Girl Searching For Her Grand Adventure

From first time feature director Santiago Caicedo, Virus Tropical is a wonderful look at the challenge of growing up through the eyes of a middle class girl from Quito in Ecuador. The film is a black and white animated feature...

Blu-ray Review: Prognosis for THE CURED is Bleak

Released at festivals in 2017 as The Third Wave, David Freyne's first narrative feature (now released as The Cured) nabbed not just Ellen Page (Hard Candy, Juno), who loved the script enough to sign on as both actor and producer,...

Review: THE NIGHT OF THE VIRGIN Drags On, Then Barely Delivers As WTF Genre Cinema

Roberto San Sebastián’s The Night of the Virgin (aka La noche del virgen) is one of those genre films that, since early on, you know it’ll be all about the execution of its climax. The basic setting goes like this:...

Blu-ray Review: KING OF HEARTS, Still a Compelling Portrait of Madness

If you view them as mentally ill, you won’t enjoy yourself too much. Not in this day and age. And rightfully so. I’m referring to the residents, central to Phlippe De Broca’s antiwar farce King of Hearts, of the French...

Isolation can play funny tricks on you. But then, how do you know what's just a trick of the mind, and what might be real? In Philip Gelatt's sophomore feature They Remain, two people discover hidden corners of their minds...

Blu-ray Review: IT'S ALIVE TRILOGY Kills

I have always enjoyed the cinematic comfort food made by Larry Cohen (Q: The Winged Serpent, The Stuff, God Told Me To), and so I jumped at the opportunity to review Scream Factory's new Blu-ray box set, the It's Alive...

Blu-ray Review: CYBORG Kicks its Way Home

Shout Factory's new release of Cannon Films' Cyborg is likely the best the film has ever looked since it's initial theatrical release. As a fan of most of Cannon's canon, I'm sad to say that 1989's Cyborg didn't do it for me, story...

Blu-ray Review: THE HOUSE THAT DRIPPED BLOOD Pours on Nostalgia

Like Hammer Films (most affectionately known as Hammer Horror), Amicus Productions was based in England and among other genres, specialized in gothic horror films with plenty of atmosphere and excellent ensemble casts. These movies have a palpable feel and flavor,...

Blu-ray Review: BEHIND THE MASK Remains Great
