Death of a Snowman

ORDER DVD Death Of A Snowman (aka Soul Patrol or Black Trash) is one of the more unique entries in the Blaxploitation sub-genre primarily due to its production during South Africa’s shameful apartheid era. It’s also one of the handful of foreign productions making it a flick fans of the genre will no doubt get […]

Stroszek

ORDER DVD Call me an artless heathen but I’ve never really been down with much of Herzog’s work at all. Whether or not a lot of his comments in interviews are tongue in cheek, he just comes across as totally condescending. His comments about Abel Ferrara while being interviewed about the Bad Lieutenant remake (insert […]

Bordello of Blood

Most fans of late 80s horror are familiar with the HBO anthology series Tales From the Crypt and its host the Cryptkeeper. The show was arguably one of the best of its kind and it enjoyed a successful run unlike its attempts to crossover to the big screen with Demon Knight and Bordello Of Blood. […]

Nighthawks

ORDER DVD Lost somewhere in between Stallone’s highly successful Rocky and Rambo franchises, Nighthawks is an underrated gem in action cinema and is notable for introducing Rutger Hauer to American audiences and Sly kicking ass in drag. Nighthawks revolves around two New York undercover cops DaSilva (Stallone) and Fox (Billy Dee Williams) who are assembled by a British Counter-terrorist specialist Hartman (Nigel […]

The Night Porter

Liliana Cavani’s 1973 film The Night Porter has certainly divided audiences and critics alike over the years. Its controversial themes and subject matter have seen the film be painted as tasteless, exploitative and having no artistic merit other than to shock. The Night Porter along with Salo treads a fine line between quality Arthouse cinema and Exploitation and it depends […]

Autoluminescent

I’ve always found it a bit frustrating just how little attention a lot of pioneering musicians get from the music press. Every year the major music magazines and documentary channels wheel out stuff concerning the usual suspects like Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, The Doors and Nirvana while other equally important bands and artists’ […]

The Eroticist

ORDER DVD Lucio Fulci is more widely known to film fans for his gore-soaked and violent horror flicks. It is often forgotten he worked outside of the horror field as well and had a varied output that delved into the crime, western and comedy genres.

Evil Bong

ORDER DVD If you’re anything like me the sight of a chainsaw wielding Tommy Chong on the cover of a DVD about a killer bong just screams out WATCH ME! Shit sounds great right? Evil Bong is Full Moon delving into the stoner/college kid comedy. It’s a film that doesn’t take itself too seriously just […]

Iggy Pop – Lust for Life

 A true rock n’ roll legend in every sense of the world Iggy Pop is one of the most charismatic performers every to set foot on the stage. The Godfather of Punk’s musical career has spanned over 30 years and has seen him experience many highs and lows none of which have deterred his determination […]

Isle of the Damned

I’ve found the Horror/Comedy subgenre quite lacking over the past few years as most of the output has been cookie cutter Army of Darkness and Shaun of the Dead clones. In all honesty I wasn’t expecting much from Isle of the Damned, but another tired retread in the similar vein thankfully that wasn’t the case. […]
