Film Review: STRAWBERRY FLAVORED PLASTIC (2018)

Strawberry Flavored Plastic (2018) Directed By: Colin Bemis Reviewed By: Madeline Milden It is not often I encounter a film so dull it’s more irritating than sleep inducing. Trust me eating strawberry flavored plastic would have been more enjoyable than watching this mess again. Filmmakers Errol and Ellis discover a serial killer named Noel and make him the subject of their first documentary. Noel finds out his ex from a few years ago...

Film Review: THE SUSPICIOUS DEATH OF A MINOR (1975)

The Suspicious Death of a Minor was one of the last of Sergio Martino’s Giallo films. While it isn’t as well known, or even as good, as something like Torso, it is a nice addition to the collection for the genre fans out there. As far as Martino’s work goes, and the entire Giallo genre for that matter, there are title I love and titles that annoy the hell out of me. You see, when the Giallo genre blew up, tons of directors made...

Film Review: THE SCARLET WORM (2011)

I don’t consider myself to be an obsessive label collector. When it comes to the “boutique” labels, like Arrow Video, I take many aspects into consideration. I have to look at price and the availability of releases from other companies. I also, of course, have to figure out if I like the film enough to get an expensive restoration or an even more expensive limited edition release. The good thing about Arrow, however, is that they...

Film Review: THE SUMMONER (2017)

The Summoner (2017) Film Review by Meredith Brown Written and Directed by James Secker Produced by Rob Yeomans Starring Adam McNab, Mhairi Calvey, Alexandra Hansler, Kate Marie Davies, Mike Carr I usually do not review shorts, but will make an exception as I am having a tough time deciding if I found THE SUMMONER amusing, or absolute schlock. It is 1980-something, and a rather scruffy, deep throated British man, receives a curt phone...

Film Review: THE SLAYER (1982)

When I think of the films of the early eighties, I always think about the slasher genre. I’m a big fan of earlier and less known scream queen performances in movies like Popcorn. I also like the haunted dreamlike films that dealt with women as not only victims, but possible killers. Many of the films I really like, and have missed over the years, have been released by Arrow Video. When I think through awesome Arrow releases like...

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. Sequence breaking is often used to beat a game unusually quickly, to beat it while only completing a few objectives or obtaining a few items, to obtain useful items early in the game, to make the game more difficult, or to help...
