Film Review: SEQUENCE BREAK (2017) Fantasia Festival 2017

According to Wikipedia, “In computer and video games, sequence breaking is the act of performing actions or obtaining items out of the intended linear order, or of skipping “required” actions or items entirely.

Film Review: NAVY SEALS v DEMONS

NAVY SEALS V DEMONS, read the title again and them ask yourself if you really expected this not to suck.

They’ve become pretty formulaic over time but...

Film Review: SPACE BABES FROM OUTER SPACE (2017)

If I said I’d seen a film that involved the talents of Brian Williams, Scott Schirmer and Dustin Mills you’d probably be pretty sure of it’s genre. Especially if I mentioned the cast was headed by Ellie Church. But no, it’s not another dose of raw horror, it’s SPACE BABES FROM OUTER SPACE (2017), a wonderful throwback to old soft core sci-fi films like SPACE THING and ZETA ONE aka THE LOVE FACTOR. Certainly not what I’d expect from...
