Film Review: THE BABYSITTER (2017)

When looking back fondly on old films from the 80’s and even further back, we should take care that the rose-colored glasses we’re seeing them through don’t blind us to the obvious. Too often now, I’ve read/heard complaints online about how much new movies “SUCK ASS”, because the filmmakers, who grew up on the same old classics you did, try too hard to imitate what they saw, rather than try and duplicate the warm, fuzzy feelings that...

Film Review: LITTLE EVIL (2017)

No company that produces a lot of movies every year, gets it right 100% of the time. For every time that jump shot hits “nothing but net”, there’s those ‘air-balls’…the near-misses to the outright “HTF does this movie even EXIST???” Netflix is no exception, and this time the ‘almost-got-there’ award goes to writer/director ELI CRAIG’S LITTLE EVIL (2017). Craig, you’d think, would be a shoo-in for an OMEN-like horror parody,...

Film Review: House (1977)

In 1977, Nobuhiko Obayashi directed one of the craziest genre bending homage horror films that I have ever seen. It has a release from The Criterion Collection that is currently on sale for half price through Barnes and Noble. I’m not gonna lie. I think you should get it. This film centers around a handful of teen girls that go and spend some time in a house. Of course, the house is haunted. Of course, there is a strange amount of...

Cult Epics Double Film Review: Mondo Weirdo & Vampiros Sexos (2017)

A fairly recent release from Cult Epics has been evading my grasp for quite awhile. Like many of their releases, they can be real expensive for quite a long time. They can also be stupid. Yeah, I said it. There’s another label out there too, that just can’t chill with the seventies porn. I just don’t know who is buying this stuff, especially at the release prices. On a much more positive note, this company has released one of my...

Double Criterion Collection Fillm Review: Twin Peaks & The Lure (2017)

The Criterion Collection has recently released two surrealist horror trips that will have many people excited about the future of the label. One, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, is a cult classic that has been highly anticipated; while the other, The Lure, is a contemporary horror film that may reach cult status one day. I picked up both of these films on Blu-ray during the most recent Criterion flash sale, and ended up being pretty...

Box Set Review: Between Night and Dawn (2017)

Between Night and Dawn is a set of films from Arrow Video that brings together some of the lesser known works of George Romero. It is a really cool idea, and a great way to honor the works of a recently deceased horror icon. In a way, however, it is still kind of a let down. Trust me when I say, that this is a very cool collectible item. As a huge fan of Romero and horror history, it is something that I will probably add to the...

Film Review: Crackbaby Billionaire (2017)

It took me a long time to get around to seeing Crackbaby Billionaire from Sleaze Box veteran John Miller. I reviewed his ultra-violent, sleazy film Skumbagz a couple years ago. Crackbaby Billionaire uses many familiar elements from Miller’s past works. His post-modern/hip-hop infused portrayals of the underbelly of society are still very apparent in these films. Similar to low-budget filmmakers like Dakota Bailey, Miller is constantly...

Film Review: Jericho (2017)

Jericho is a film from writer, director, editor, and producer Emir Skalonja. He is quickly achieving an underground following with his short metaphoric trip through mental illness Melancholia and his feature length zombie duology, The Plague and The Plague 2: Biohazard Blood. This new venture into action filmmaking is an interesting move. While it isn’t necessarily a commonly covered genre on this site, there are many labels and...

Film Review: Hi 8 Ressurectio (2017)

Hi 8 Ressurectio is a crazy-ass German film from first time writer/director Stefan Sierecki. It is a gory gem that you will be able to get from Black Lava Entertainment. Like Unearthed Films, over here in the US, this label seems to be getting stronger with every release. Tracking the history of releases from this company has been an interesting journey for this indie horror fan. I don’t own as many of their releases as other...

Film Review: Kuso (2017)

I recently heard about this film in a Facebook group. It is a really strange apocalyptic peek into urban living, sex, the music industry, and fame. It is a film that will definitely leave a mark on your memory, whether you decide that you like it or not. The writer and director of this film is the quirky and eccentric musician that goes by the name Flying Lotus. He is apparently fairly well known in the music world. His music and...
