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...

Every Unearthed Films Release, Ranked and Rated: Part 5 of 5 (TOP TEN!!)

As we approach top 10 territory, I realize that these are the films that I have watched an almost unhealthy number of times. These are examples of horror film history. They come from all over the world and exemplify the best of multiple sub-genres of extreme horror.  10.5??? Coming in tenth place was essentially a tie between Marcus Koch’s insane clown film 100 Tears. It is a cult classic, and possibly the best movie I’ve...

Number thirty-seven also marks the middle of road, being the halfway point between one and seventy-five. So this is the part of the list where we abandon all fear of cliches, and break on through to the other side. Philosophy of a Knife and Android of...

Every Unearthed Films Release, Ranked and Rated: Part 1 of 5 (#51-#75)

Thanks to the Letterboxd app, I am becoming obsessed with making lists. I know I’m late to that show, because all anyone has ever wanted to read on the internet for the last ten years has been list posts. Anyway, for my first website related list, I decided to rate and rank of all the films that have been released by Unearthed Films thus far. Since Letterboxd uses a 1-5 star scale, with 1/2 numbers as an option, I started with...
