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...

Film Review: Stormy Monday (1988)

Arrow Video recently released this early film from the two time Academy Award nominated director of Leaving Las Vegas, Mike Figgis. Stormy Monday is a crime film from 1988 that looks and feels like something Michael Mann would have done. It had an impressive cast for a filmmaker who, at the time, had only made one made-for-TV movie. So while I like the history behind it and the look of the film, I can’t help but feel a little...

Steven’s Stupid Stash Synopsis: The Blue Underground Killer Thrillers Collection

Blue Underground has taken multiple routes when it comes to packaging their releases over the years. Films that were given DVD releases back in the day sometimes received the BD upgrade. Many of these individual releases also got put into Midnight Movie sets ranging from two to five films. The Killer Thrillers collection is a set I recently picked up for less than twenty bucks when they were on sale through Deep Discount.  I already...

Steven’s Stupid Cinema Stash Synopsis: Female Trouble (1974)

I don’t always pre-order films from The Criterion Collection; but when I do, John Waters is usually involved. Adding Female Trouble to their catalog, after the addition of Multiple Maniacs awhile back, makes me excited to see what else they may have up their sleeve. Female Trouble is the story of Dawn Davenport’s rise from super-bitchy-spoiled-teenage-rape victim to single mother/serial criminal. In normal Divine, Lochary,...

MANDY: Coming Soon To A Theater Near You

MANDY (2018) Directed By: Panos Cosmatos Written By: Panos Cosmatos and Aaron Stewart-Ahn Stars: Nicolas Cage, Andrea Riseborough, Linus Roache, Richard Brake, Bill Duke This trailer was just too good not to post, (thanks to a tip from a great friend of this site, Jim Morazzini).  It looks like a revenge thriller with supernatural overtones, although they already had me at “revenge thriller”! After MOM AND DAD, it looks...

Super Short Cinema Stock Up Review: It’s Alive Trilogy (1974-1987)

One of Scream Factory’s most recent releases is a trilogy from the glory days of horror. The It’s Alive trilogy spans thirteen years (1974-1987), and marked legendary director Larry Cohen’s move from Blaxploitation to horror cinema. These films center around the birth of mutant babies and their population spread throughout the country. The first film is more of a traditional horror film with scares and violence;...

Film Review: The Color of Pomegranates (1969)

The Color of Pomegranates is a newer release from The Criterion Collection, directed by Sergei Parajanov. It is an interesting biography of the poet Sayat Nova told through numerous interconnected scenes of metaphoric and poetic imagery. For a film that came out in 1969, it is hard to separate from the more current autobiographical works of Alejandro Jodorowsky. This movie has amazing costumes, set design, and direction. It is a...
