After…

A good plot twist can be a potent weapon in the armoury of a movie. Ideally, these serve as an addition, an extra to an already-effective plot. The story has seemingly been resolved and then the twist arrives to reveal the hidden extra layer to all that has gone before. When this works, it can […]

District B13

It’s France 2013 and the gangs rule the ghettos of Paris so the government whacks up some concrete barriers and leave the slums to the drug lords and street gangs. Into that slum drops a nuclear weapon that needs recovering. Sounds kinda familiar don’t it? But this Escape from NY ‘homage’ doesn’t have Snake Pillsen or The […]

Demons Among Us

A long term labour of love this Aussie independent horror film first saw the light in 2001 as a short film before Simpson expanded the storyline and started filming the long version in 2003. It took until 2006 to complete it with a volunteer crew, a cast of unknowns and more balls than Wendy O […]

Pervert!

Pervert! is a modern-day homage to the films of Sexploitation king Russ Meyer. I went into this not expecting much as I’m really not a big fan of the recent flood of “homages” and “tributes” being churned out by directors pathetically trying to cash-in on the current “retro” / “grindhouse” trend. Pervert! however, is a […]

Video Nasties

I’m From Hollywood

I’m from Hollywood chronicles Andy Kaufman’s performances in the world of wrestling… not so much professional man on man wrestling, but Kaufman’s own inter-gender wrestling (for which he held the belt for). I’m from Hollywood was a film that Kaufman and Margulies worked on while Kaufman was still alive but was later finished after his death by Margulies […]

Killer Nun

Killer Nun is an Italian Nunsploitation flick starring Anita Ekberg (Fellini’s La Dolce Vita) as sister Gertrude. Sister Gertrude works in a geriatric hospital and is recovering from neurosurgery. She is dependent on morphine to help with headaches which she experiences daily, and man does she has some track marks that can rival that dude in Requiem for a […]

Elvis Meets Nixon

Elvis Meets Nixon is a mockumentary-TV movie about Elvis’s expedition to the Whitehouse to become a Federal Marshall for the DEA. I am a HUGE Elvis fan and was jumping up and down with joy when I found about this film. Elvis Meets Nixon is a comedy/satire and is one of the most awesome Elvis movies out there. […]
