Film Review: 3 Women (1977)

A recent addition to The Criterion Collection that may appeal to fans of the more art-house and surreal sides of the collecting world is Robert Altman’s 1977 film 3 Women. I even found similarities in this film to the likes of classic horror films from Hitchcock and DePalma. 3 Women centers around an obsessive and volatile relationship between the quirkily named Millie and Pinky. Their childlike names, however, have dark and...

Doom Asylum is the name of this 1987 gory absurdity. It centers around a...

Film Review: The Greasy Strangler (2016)

Writer/Director Jim Hosking brought one of the weirdest movies ever together a couple years back. Sadly, it completely fell off of my radar until I saw that it was streaming on Amazon two weeks ago. So…yeah…after a few days of quoting the film to people that had never heard of it, I realized that a strange obsession was growing within. I knew I had to get to the internet and compare some BD prices. I found the best deal...
