Film Review: Karaoke Terror (2003)

Karaoke Terror is a strange, yet likable release from Synapse Films. It was directed by Tetsuo Shinohara, who has had a prolific career; however, is not very well known outside of his native Japan. The novelist behind this film is one that many fans have hear of due to the worldwide hit directed by Takashi Miike, Audition.  The Japanese title of this film is Shôwa kayô daizenshû. I have no idea how much of the title has to do with...

Film Review: Tourist Trap (1979)

I have been watching a bunch of stuff from Full Moon Features lately. I’m covering lots of genres, time periods, and obscure directors. My favorite thing about this company is their Grindhouse Collection. My second favorite thing is their demonic eighties obscurities, usually full of satanic shit and hot girls.

I love the fact that they have both been around for a long time, giving generations of indie fans the opportunity to see films that they would never get from the...

Film Review: Madhouse (1981)

I was pretty pumped about seeing this one getting a release from Arrow Video. It is not insanely obscure title, but unknown to many nonetheless.Ovidio G. Assonitis is the director behind this surprisingly brutal little film. He has also directed the cult classics Beyond the Door and Tentacles. He is also well known as the producer of films like Sacrifice!, Who Saw Her Die?, and The Curse.  As far as Madhouse goes, I’m definitely...

Film Review: Creepozoids (1987)

Notorious filmmaker David DeCoteau has directed over one hundred and thirty films. They cover the full spectrum in regard to obscure genres of various levels of cinematic quality. He has hilarious creature features, awful soft-core porn, and surprisingly nicely executed action films. He has terrible films and terribly awesome films. His connection to Full Moon Features, of course, makes his filmography, which overall is a beautiful...
