Mold! (2012)

Mold banner1

One of the consequences of living in the Age of Remakes (especially in the horror genre) is that horror filmmakers not interested in doing a remake are finding it difficult to find what I call the “Prevailing Voice”.  The 1970s had many different voices.  There was the dark, sensationalistic Giallo voice; the documentary-like splashy Italian … Continue reading

Eureka! Entertainment to Release Restored Australian Cult Classic Wake in Fright

Wake in Fright banner

WAKE IN FRIGHT might not be a familiar sounding film, but trust me when I tell you that this is indeed a lost (and luckily restored) classic.  WAKE IN FRIGHT comes to us back from 1971 when exploitation films weren’t afraid to push boundaries.  WAKE IN FRIGHT is directed by Ted Kotcheff, written by Evan Jones (based off … Continue reading

Creep Van (2012)

Creep Van banner

I owned two cars in my life: one was a cherry red Ford Gran Torino, a Starsky and Hutch car without the white racing stripes. I got her when I was seventeen, for the princely sum of $100. I loved her – for the three weeks she lived. Her undercarriage prolapsed on the Long Island … Continue reading

Wow. I just finished watching the short horror film, TERRIFIER … three times in a row!! TERRIFIER is written and directed by Damien Leone and stars Marie Maser, Mike Giannelli, and Michael Chmiel.

I Spill Your Guts (2012)

i-spill-your-guts-banner

War. Revenge. The self-fueled cycle of the war machine creating killers and then not knowing what to do with them once they aren’t needed anymore. All these themes and more are explored in James Balsamo’s latest flick, I SPILL YOUR GUTS. Sure the name is a bit 42nd Street-ish … it’s supposed to be. This … Continue reading

Looks Like Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno is Delving into Cannibal Territory … Sweet!!

Inferno banner2

I know there’s a lot of horror fans who are haters of Eli Roth. To you all I ask, “Why??” The man obviously loves the horror genre and has given us some really fun and gory films. I can still remember seeing CABIN FEVER in the theater for the first time. I was cheering and … Continue reading

Father’s Day (2011)

Fathers Day banner

What is it with Canada’s love affair with the good old exploitation/grindhouse flicks of yesteryear? Don’t get me wrong; I’m not condemning our friends to the North. I think you all know me well enough by now that I absolutely adore the grindhouse genre that sprung up in New York City’s 42nd Street district. Sleazy … Continue reading

The Victim (2011)

The Victim banner

THE VICTIM is the solo directorial debut from genre actor, Michael Biehn (in 2010 he co-directed THE BLOOD BOND with Anthony Szeto). I’ve posted a few articles about the progress of this film over the last year, and then suddenly it went silent. So I was pretty happy that THE VICTIM was being screened at … Continue reading

Nina: Crazy Suicide Girl (2012)

Nina Crazy Suicide Girl banner

NINA: CRAZY SUICIDE GIRL gets an early vote as being the best titled film of 2012 (so far). When I first came across this one I assumed it was an Asian import. You know; the crazy, over-the-top Asian films that are full of comic book-like violence and gore? Well I was wrong. This is actually … Continue reading

El Monstro del Mar! (2010)

El Monstro del Mar 1

It’s become pretty fashionable among indie horror filmmakers to pay homage to past genre styles. Even mainstream Hollywood has gotten into the act with Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino paying homage to the grindhouse genre (one of my favorite old-school genres out there) with their collaborative effort, GRINDHOUSE. Now Stuart Simpson throws his hat into … Continue reading
