Pulp (1972)

About a decade ago I watched Get Carter (1971) with my uncle. I had never seen it and it was one of his favorites. I could see why. Michael Caine plays a great tough guy, it had memorable lines of dialogue, and great hard nosed action. Fast forward to today and I discovered that Caine […]

Essex Space Bin (2016)

I picked up Essex Space Bin without knowing much. I knew it was released by Troma, I knew it was British, and I knew it was very low budget. I also knew it looked odd. All of these things combined, I figured it could be a perfect Awful Awesome movie. Or it could be absolute […]

Cops vs. Thugs (1975)

About a dozen years ago a friend of mine’s little brother gave me some Japanese movies on dvd to check out. Among the pile were the five films of the Yakuza Papers directed by Kinji Fukasaku. I watched all five films in quick succession and really enjoyed their gritty portrayal of yakuza life. Fast forward […]

J.D.’s Revenge (1976)

Close to 10 years ago, when Netflix streaming was still new, I was able to watch a bunch of “blaxploitation” films on the service. I watched classics like Bucktown, Coffy, Friday Foster, Black Caesar, and more, including JD’s Revenge. It was a fun time in streaming history and I watched all that I could. Much […]

Red Christmas (2017)

There was a time when I was a champion for Artsploitation Films. They had a roster of strong independent and foreign films from new or unfamiliar directors. They released fantastic films and took big risks. I loved them for gambling on unknown foreign directors making films that fit into a world that wasn’t quite art […]

The Crazies (1973)

  Growing up renting videos from my local mom & pop I stumbled across The Crazies on big box vhs. It had a killer cover and proclaimed that it was from the director of Night of the Living Dead (which I hadn’t seen yet) so I rented it. I honestly didn’t remember much about that […]

The Climber (1975)

I’ll fully admit that I’m not nearly as well versed with eurocrime flicks as I’d like to be. The italian poliziotteschi films were known for their gritty realism, violence, and great soundtracks. For some reason that isn’t fully clear to me, they are largely under represented on North American releases. We got a boat load […]

Down (2001)

Recently I covered the Dutch horror flick, The Lift about a killer elevator. The film was made in 1983 and in 2001 director Dick Maas had the opportunity to remake his hit in the U.S. with a bigger budget, set in New York. Why have you never heard of this flick before? Well, it premiered […]

The Devil’s Honey (1986)

The name Lucio Fulci for many film fans is synonymous with the word gore. His name looms large over those of us who enjoy a bit of the red stuff but in recent years his non-horror films have received reappraisal. Now instead of automatically thinking about films like the New York Ripper and Zombie, he’s […]

The Witch Who Came From the Sea (1976)

Another film in the American Film Project released by Arrow Video, The Witch Who Came From the Sea was designated as a video nasty in the U.K. in the early 80’s. Close to fifteen years ago, I went through the video nasty list and watched every title i could get my hands on, including The […]
