OBSESSIONS Blu-ray/DVD Combo Arrives From Cult Epics

The obscure film OBSESSIONS (aka A HOLE IN THE WALL) was directed by Dutch artsploitation auteur Pim de la Parra and co-produced by longtime collaborator Wim Verstappen (BLUE MOVIE). This gritty, psychedelic Hitchcockian mystery, which is notable for being the first Dutch film shot in English-language, starts in a savagely brutal fashion. When a bloody painting of Vincent van Gogh falls from a wall and exposes a makeshift peephole,...

Film Review: THE HERETICS (2017)

Over the past few years Canada’s Black Fawn Films have racked up an impressive track record when it comes to producing genre films with titles that include IN THE HOUSE OF THE FLIES, THE DROWNSMAN, ANTISOCIAL, BED OF THE DEAD and BITE. So when I was offered a screener of their most recent film THE HERETICS, I was more than happy to check it out. Five years ago, Gloria (Nina Kiri THE HAUNTED HOUSE ON KIRBY ROAD, LET HER OUT) was...

Film Review: Multiple Maniacs (1970)

A release like this makes me wonder if the guys behind The Criterion Collection are taking a tip from Arrow Video and pushing their marketing towards fans of the strange and unusual. These fans (yeah I’m talking about you and me) are the last of a dying breed. We are the ones that are still buying physical media. I guess people are still buying Transformers 11 and Really Fast, Really Furious 20; but, it is becoming more apparent...

Film Review: ROMEO’S DISTRESS (2016)

Taking its title, though not its plot from Christian Death’s classic song ROMEO’S DISTRESS marks the first feature after several shorts from writer/director Jeff Frumess. It’s a surreal, twisted film that could almost be the cinematic equivalent of listening to one of Christian Death’s albums, and that is a very good thing. ROMEO’S DISTRESS begins with a happy colorful scene of James (Anthony Malchar) and Jane (Kimberely A. Peterson)...

Film Review: Philosophy of a Knife (2008)

Philosophy of a Knife is a really interesting piece of filmmaking from Andrey Iskanov. It was released in 2008 by Unearthed Films, fully uncut in two parts. These two parts will walk you through four hours of absolute darkness and human depravity. It is a film that is structurally difficult to pin down. This, of course, is what makes it incredibly interesting. There are black and white documentary sequences. There are also absolutely...

Film Review: Mercy (2006)

As far as Unearthed Films goes, I have a consistently good outlook on most of their films. They don’t pay me, I don’t give biased reviews of their films. I chose to attempt to cover as many of their films as possible after I had already purchased a bunch of them. This is because I noticed this to be a label of extreme promise. Unearthed Films has good, decent, and bad films. They cover numerous genres thoughout many different...

Film Review: KRAMPUS (2015)

His legend has existed for centuries, going so far back, in fact, that there is a school of thought that he actually pre-dated Santa Claus, NOT the other way around.  He’s been making appearances and been a so-called “special guest” in a lot of horror anthologies and holiday-themed, slasher-centric movies, most notably in A CHRISTMAS HORROR STORY.  But it was high-time that KRAMPUS got to have his own movie, and who better to handle...

Top 10 RAPE/REVENGE films by Samuel Glass Jr

Is there anything more controversial, a subject more touchy and fraught with ‘triggers’ these days, than the rape/revenge sub-genre? I have already reviewed movies that provided the perfect motivation for payback, but does revenge ever go deeper, than when it’s taken at the hands of a woman who has been wrongfully, brutally violated?  There’s even ANOTHER level to explore, when you get into a male character seeking revenge for sexual...

Film Review: Where the Dead Go to Die (2012)

I was late to the Jimmy ScreamerClauz game. I loved When Black Birds Fly, but had no idea how much work he had done previously. I knew he had another full length feature from Unearthed Films, and it took me a long time to get it. Now that I have it, I know that I need to stay on the lookout for everything this guy has done and plans on doing. Aside from his animation work, his music will appear in the upcoming American Guinea Pig:...
