Murderlust (1986)

Intervision Picture Corp. is an interesting company. Somehow tagentially related to the well regarded Severin Films, Intervision picks up all the obscure detritus hiding under rocks. They’ve released such films as the low-fi Canadian head scratcher Things, the equally lo-fi Canadian gem Phobe,  the early German gorefest Burning Moon, final film from Bruno Mattel Zombies: […]

Counter Clockwise (2016)

Artsploitation is a unique label. They deal exclusively with unknown or little known directors. They scour the globe looking for unique cinema that is equal parts art house and exploitation (hence the title). Their most recent release, Counter Clockwise fits the bill nicely and works with their previous releases. Counter Clockwise is about a man […]

The Search for Weng Weng (2016)

The world of exploitation cinema is a wild and weird on as we all know. The history of the strange side of cinema from the around the world is filled with unique individuals but one of the most unique is Weng Weng. Star of several films made in the Philippines in the late 70’s and […]

Phobe: The Xenophobic Experiments (1994)

Thank goodness for Intervision. Specializing in off the wall and low budget films from around the globe they have unleashed not one but two fantastically terrible movies. Their first home run bad movie hit was Things. Phobe is their second. I hadn’t even heard of this slice of home grown Canadian Sci-fi silliness until they […]

Dolemite (1975)

Over the years I have seen plenty of Blaxploitation flicks. My favorite are the ones starring Fred “The Hammer” Williamson. The films are often lots of fun and give a peak into a place and time unique to the films. Dolemite is a flick I’ve always wanted to check out but for multiple reasons I […]

America’s Deadliest Home Video (1993)

Before I begin this review I feel that I should disclose that I write for Lunchmeat magazine, whose head honcho Josh was largely responsible for this flick being released on dvd. In fact I first heard about this flick from Josh’s glowing review in an old issue of Lunchmeat. He discovered the film and loved […]

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 […]

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 […]

Reckless (2014)

I’ve said it before, Scandinavia and the Germanic countries are doing fantastic work in the dark thriller sub genre. Whether it’s a crime film or a detective movie, they’ve got the gritty, grim, and satisfying vibe down to a science. Reckless is no different. Reckless is about two guys who kidnap the daughter of a […]

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 […]
