Spiker

Spiker

| December 19, 2008

Spiker is bad in pretty much every way. The Spiker himself is a huge, albino serial killer, whose weapon of choice is the railroad spike. After escaping the custody of some doctors on a dock and conveniently picking up a box of railroad spikes on the shoreline, he must murder again. The Spiker mercilessly slaughters […]

Valkyrie

Valkyrie

| December 18, 2008

I’m going to get this out of the way right at the top: if you didn’t know that Valkyrie had had such a long and messy road to its theatrical release, you certainly wouldn’t guess it from the final product. Stories of awful test screenings and reshoots and Tom Cruise’s German accent have dogged the […]

Cycle of Fear

Cycle of Fear

| December 18, 2008

As filmmaking gets cheaper and more accessible, it only makes sense that more and more people would try their hand at it. And it only makes sense that many of these filmmakers would take their first stab at filmmaking at a proven genre: the horror film. There are tons of great low-budget horror films that […]

Nothing Like the Holidays

Nothing Like the Holidays

| December 18, 2008

Nothing Like the Holidays wasn’t ashamed to show us its culture. Built around a Hispanic family enjoying the holiday season, they didn’t pull any punches. Each one of the family members told it like it was, starting with their mother, a proud woman who wants the best for her children and isn’t afraid to say […]

Death Race

Death Race

| December 17, 2008

When I heard they were remaking Roger Corman’s cult classic, “Death Race 2000,” I knew one thing for certain: it would either be awful, or it would be fun. When I heard who was writing and directing the film, Paul W.S. Anderson, I was at a complete loss for words. Anderson has made a number […]

House of the Dead: Funny Version

House of the Dead: Funny Version

| December 17, 2008

Okay…it’s not every day that I actually cheer for a new Uwe Boll film. In fact, with the sort-of exception of Postal it’s never actually happened. I say sort-of, of course, because Postal can best be described as the best of a bad lot, but that’s neither here nor there. This is, however, a cause […]

ANNISTON GOES TO THE DOGS

ANNISTON GOES TO THE DOGS

| December 16, 2008

Jennifer Anniston has been in the public eye for over a decade, but fame doesn’t seem to have changed her too much. An actress who successfully made the transition from TV to movie star, she remains consistently busy. Early next year we’ll see her in the romantic comedy She’s not that Into You, but meanwhile, […]

LIEV SCHREIBER DEFIANTLY TAKES ON TOUGH ROLE

LIEV SCHREIBER DEFIANTLY TAKES ON TOUGH ROLE

| December 16, 2008

Live Schreiber is an actor who rarely plays the same character more than once. Whether he’s on stage or screen, the quietly spoken intelligent actor immerses himself in each character he plays, from the Jewish partisan brother in Defiance, to the antagonist in next year’s Wolverine. He spoke candidly about both films as well as […]

EVAN RACHEL WOOD WRESTLING WITH ADULTHOOD

| December 16, 2008

When we first met seven years ago, Evan Rachel Wood was a mere 13, on the cusp of success. Now at a confident 21, the beautiful young actress has survived adolescence, the prying eyes of the media and early fame, as she continues to take on challenging roles, such as Mickey Rourke’s estranged daughter in […]
