Death Note is one of the most famous anime series of all time. It began life as a manga in 2003 written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata. From there came the anime series, four live-action films, assorted live-action TV series plus – at time of writing – an impending English-language version by […]
From the team that brought you The Disco Exorcist comes this fucked up, demonic, nunsploitation tale that has a real Lucio Fulci vibe to it. Our story kicks off in 1999 when a kiddy fiddling priest at St. Christopher Middle School is confronted by the nuns who know what he’s been doing. Things don’t quite […]
The Blood Shed is a horror-comedy about a hillbilly/cannibal family from New Jersey called the Bullions. Beefteena Bullion (director Alan Rowe Kelly) is turning 12, and her family are organising a birthday party for her. Beefteena is really an overweight old man, with Shirley Temple curls, Mary-Jane shoes, and a fashion sense derived from the 1930’s […]
A small town bank in West Texas is robbed. Two gunmen, only taking low denomination bills from the cash drawers. Then another bank, the same modus operandi. A third. The robbers taking only several thousand dollars each time, but leaving no evidence, no trail. On their trail, two lawmen, tracking them across the desert.
A low budget homage to the splatter/stalker pics of the 80s from director Manny Serrano, this film has its faults, mostly due to budget restraints, but somehow it still works. The movie kicks off with a pre-credit birthday party for a local judge whilst a mysterious ‘someone’ lurks in the bushes. When two cops (Jim […]
Australian low budget Yowie movie that was made on a budget so low you wouldn’t believe it was possible and still comes up with the goods! Starting with a prologue that’s ‘Finding Bigfoot meets Mad Dog Morgan’ we find ourselves in the Australian gold-fields of 1825 where notorious bush-ranger Thunderclap Newman is about to meet […]
I kind of have a love-hate relationship with unathorised DVDs. I know they are normally extremely crappy, but one of my favourite music documentaries, Metal Machine Music: NIN and the Industrial Uprising, is unathorised and is awesome. Ever since I saw it I’ve been hanging out for something just as good.
I’ve fucking loved Clive Barker ever since Hellraiser scared the shit out of me when I was seven. His fiction is truly frightening because while he will use gore he does not rely on it. What’s scarier is the unusual and obscure, and anyone who has read Books of Blood (a collection of his early horror […]
From 1979, this cheap cash-in on the Smokey franchise, the CB craze and custom vans probably sounded like a good idea in theory but in practise it takes a long time for the story to fall into place.
In 1975, the popular Women in Prison (or WIP) genre of grindhouse cinema was injected with a dose of World War Two and came up with Don Edmond’s notorious sleaze, sex and violence classic Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS, a film which effectively created the template for what has since become known as Naziploitation, […]
I’ll just put it out there and say that I wasn’t expecting much from Jennifer’s Body. I hated Juno sooo much. It was a self-indulgent and awkwardly scripted film. I was expecting Jennifer’s body to be similar in terms of having an annoyingly quirky script or full of “I’m so cool because I know about […]
