I DON’T FEEL AT HOME IN THIS WORLD ANYMORE. Director: Macon Blair Writer: Macon Blair Stars: Melanie Lynskey, Elijah Wood, David Yow, Jane Levy, Devon Graye, Derek Mears, Robert Longstreet, Christine Woods Between BLUE RUIN and GREEN ROOM, I know you’ve probably read my rants about the awesome talent of actor MACON BLAIR. I had no idea when I cued it up on Netflix, that I DON’T FEEL AT HOME IN THIS WORLD ANYMORE was actually...

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: ISLAND ZERO (2018)

ISLAND ZERO (2018) Director: Josh Gerritsen Writer: Tess Gerritsen Stars: Laila Robins, Adam Wade McLaughlin, Teri Reeves It’s a sad thing, that not too many filmmakers devote their energies to telling good stories anymore, such as the ones that populated the TV screens of yesteryear, as “made-for-TV” films produced by the likes of Aaron Spelling, Douglas S. Cramer, and production companies like Bing Crosby Productions and MTM/Lorimar...

Every Unearthed Films Release, Ranked and Rated: Part 3 of 5 (#21-#35)

This portion of the list is where things become extremely brutal. It holds most of the 3.5 star ratings and definitely thrusts most collectors of extreme horror into the must-own range. Numbers 31-35 are a worldly mixture of gore films. They go across multiple genres, all being solid examples of their craft. Black Sun is widely considered one of the most disturbing films of all time. It really just edged out Philosophy of Knife when I...

Film Review: IT…or another rant about remakes (2017)

After finally seeing two remakes that everyone else in the world saw months ago, I’ve come to at least one conclusion. For the most part, I believe that all remakes are unnecessary. This doesn’t mean that I don’t eventually see most them and once in awhile find one that I really like. Maniac and Evil Dead have been two of my favorites thus far. With that being said, neither of the original films needed a remake. I would say that It...

Netflix: The Good, The Bad, and The Kinda-Almost-Decent (Part 2)

Believe the Hype: Raw has been talked about glowingly by many people. I just watched it and I have to say that I’m pretty impressed. This film has an oddly realistic feel that I found far more disturbing than I expected going in. The few negative reviews that I read saw the film as exploitative, relying on shock value. I disagree. This film has a dirty low-budget look with convincing gore effects and performances. Strangely enough, I...

Netflix: The Good, The Bad, and The Kinda-Almost-Decent (Part 1)

Worse Than Expected: XX was an anthology film that I recently checked out on Netflix. I don’t know why I thought this anthology was going to be good. I guess it was the concept. The perspective shift to female protagonists in films created by females was intriguing. However, I quickly realized that they weren’t as original as they were marketed to be. Aside from one good gore scene per segment, the films did nothing to intrigue me....

Film Review: THE ICE CREAM TRUCK (2017)

For many, growing old is a real life horror story. And just as a magical elixir or fountain that restores ones youth is a staple of folklore, so has rapid aging become the center of films like THE HUNGER or PHANTOM OF DEATH and now it’s at the core of THE ICE CREAM TRUCK, the new film from Megan Freels Johnston (REBOUND and granddaughter of novelist Elmore Leonard). Mary (Deanna Russo MARY HORROR) has just moved back to the suburb she...
