The Devil Lives Here (2016)

Artsploitation Films have billed themselves as a company that releases films from new voices from around the world that play with genre conventions in unique ways. To me, they are a company worth watching because they dig deep to find unique genre films from places we might not expect. In this case, the film is […]

Bloody Knuckles (2015)

I didn’t get to cram in Bloody Knuckles during my annual horror-athon where I watch 100% horror for at least a month but I finally got around to it this week, knowing that artsploitation always delivers. Bloody Knuckles is a Canadian film about a guy who draws offensive underground comics with a cult following. He […]

Splintered Visions (2015)

In that annals of horror cinema Lucio Fulci is a giant name when it comes to sleaze and gore. For many of us he is the first touchstone into the wild word of Eurohorror, led there by promises of uncompromising vision and boat loads of red stuff. From there the world of Eurohorror and more […]

Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman (2015)

Paul Newman will be remembered by film fans as one of the greatest actors to have ever graced the silver screen. His filmography is chock full of fantastic films the nestle in the hearts of many cinephiles. He is also known for his philanthropy, we’ve all had a bottle of his salad dressing at some […]

Cub (2015)

Deformed Killer in the Woods. It’s a genre that has endured for decades within the horror world and has never fully gone away. There’s something primal about something or someone hunting you in the wilderness. It’s a good trope that has more often than not been treated terribly. We’ve all watched far too many films […]

Infidus (2015)

Necrostorm films, based in Italy, have one mission: to make innovative ultra gory flicks. Up until now, their films were heavily influenced by films made in the 80s and tried to capture the fun gooey vibe of said decade. So far they have achieved their goal. The films I’ve seen that they have produced have […]

Patch Town (2015)

In the world of cinema there are certain sub-genres of films that are very small country. Amid the giant continents of Horror, Action, Comedy, and Drama there live countries big and small. Zombie movies and Slashers would be like Russia and China on the continent known as Horrorlandia. Smaller countries would be Cannibal films and […]

Horsehead (2015)

Artsploitation have made a name for themselves in the world of dvd distribution. They always release films that hover between art and exploitation (hence the name!). Films that don’t readily fit in either category. Horsehead is a perfect example of that goal. Horsehead is about a young girl who is summoned back to the family […]

Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Dr. Moreau

I was a kid when the ’96 version of The Island of Dr. Moreau came out. I was excited. Here was a creepy looking flick with awesome monsters in it and Val Kilmer. It looked scary but not too scary so I would be able to go see it. My mom was excited too. We […]

Giallo Meltdown (2015)

It’s been awhile since I’ve watched any giallo films in earnest. For a while, I couldn’t get enough but after seeing a few misfires in a row I suppose I moved on to other interests. Author Richard Glenn Schmidt did not. His obsession with gialli is like an ever burning flame and that flame can […]
