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...

Every Unearthed Films Release, Ranked and Rated: Part 2 of 5 (#36-#50)

Numbers thirty-six through fifty make up most of the three star reviews. Number thirty-five actually received three stars, with thirty-four starting off the series of 3.5 star reviews. 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...

Film Review: Scalpel (1977)

John Grissmer is the infamous director of Blood Rage. About ten years before Blood Rage, however, he made the wildly disturbing Southern Gothic tale called Scalpel. Scalpel is a strange tale. It’s got this crazy ass doctor, who apparently doesn’t have enough money. He comes up with a scheme where he takes one of his plastic surgery patients and makes her look like his daughter. This leads to a pretty basic story, where he needs to get...

Film Review: AMERICAN GUINEA PIG: SONG OF SOLOMON (2018)

There is no possible way anyone could call themselves a horror fan, if they have never seen THE EXORCIST before. (You know – Linda Blair, Ellen Burstyn, Max Von Sydow, Jason Miller, green pea soup and “DO YOU KNOW WHAT SHE DID…YOUR CUNTING DAUGHTER?”) There are very few movie fans that haven’t had at least a few sleepless nights, thanks to the William Friedkin masterpiece. But writer/director STEPHEN BIRO decided to go...

Film Review: South Mill District (2018)

Joe Meredith is a DIY horror writer/director. He’s known in small circles of effects guys and artists like James Bell and Phil Stevens. With his new release, South Mill District, he hopefully has a shot at a new level of independent film popularity.    Although this was a short film, coming in just under thirty minutes, I was impressed by its efficiency. It used standard voice-over narration, walking the viewer through a world...

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...
