Film Review: THE GHOUL (2016)

Arrow Films is known for their restorations of the classics. The labels under the Arrow banner could easily begin to claim themselves as the Criterion Collection of Horror and Exploitation. They even have a line of classier films that are more along the lines of the actual Criterion Collection. The company’s dedication to numerous genres is what draws me to them. The problem for many collectors is, of course, the steep prices....

Film Review: GAME OF DEATH (2017) [Fantasia 2017]

Based on the web series of the same name, (which I haven’t seen), GAME OF DEATH tells the tale of what happens when a bunch of drunken youth stumble upon an old electronic board game. The game...

Film Review: GERMAN ANGST (2015)

German Angst is a trilogy of terror from Jorg Buttgereit, Michael Kosakowski, and Andreas Marshall. This anthology film has been on my radar for a long time. As a huge fan of Buttgereit, it has been on my watchlist for awhile. The only problem has been lack of coverage and high release prices. Since it was an anthology film, I was always wary about throwing down the cash for a physical copy. This week, however, I discovered that it...

Film Review: THE GLASS COFFIN (2017)

The Glass Coffin is a Spanish film that comes our way from MVD Entertainment. It made moves at Sitges last year, and will probably surprise most viewers that are willing to give it a chance. The movie opens with an actress going to an awards ceremony in her limo. At least, I think that’s what I was supposed to think. The lighting and filming style in the limo is intoxicating. I loved the use of lens flash and close-ups. It had...
