The Treatment (2014)

Recently there’s been a growing number of grim, very well made, neo noir/thriller/crime films coming out of Scandinavia and Dutch/German regions. The films are often extreme but not in a exploitative way. They’re just harder edged and more fearless than their American counterparts. Take the Treatment for instance. In tone and in style it’s very […]

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 […]

Genre fans of every stripe often lament the lackluster posters that have dominated the movie marketing world for a couple of decades now.

Video Spinegrinder (2015)

I watch a lot of movies. On a year basis I watch over 500 films. By most people’s standards, that’s a lotta films. Honestly I’m often embarrassed when asked how many films I watch in a year. Sometimes it even depresses me a bit when i start to add up the hours and realize what […]

Stunt Squad (1977)

As I said in my review for the documentary Eurocrime, Italian crime films from the 70’s were largely ignored by American audiences. Stunt Squad is no exception, garnering only 82 reviews on imdb.com despite it recently being released on Blu in the states recently by Rarovideo. It seems that despite the efforts of Blue Underground […]

I grew up in the 90’s, the peak of the video boom, right before the massive fall of the video store and vhs as the king of the formats. I had a local mom & pop shop (movies to go) in my little town and eventually we got a Blockbuster, a Hollywood Video, and a […]
