Unearthed Films has made a name for themselves among fans of extreme and underground horror with their releases of international films like the Guinea Pig series (and recently producing the American Guinea Pig films), but their latest release is something of a change of pace for the company. Two years ago, BRINKVision released Luciano and […]

The Last King

The Last King

| October 5, 2016

It’s very cool that this movie exists. As it were I believe there aren’t enough modern films made to retell past history. In the past few years there have been an immense overflow of remakes upon remakes but not enough new content telling old true stories. The Last King attempts to fill the void that […]

Vamp

Vamp

| October 5, 2016

The 1980’s were awash with vampire movies. Some are still considered to be classics in the genre, such as 1985’s Fright Night, 1987’s The Lost Boys, and 1987’s Near Dark. On the other hand, there was the comedy/horror movie from 1983 Once Bitten, starring a young Jim Carrey. Once Bitten is way more comedy than […]

Kamikaze ’89

Kamikaze ’89

| September 22, 2016

While the work of Rainer W. Fassbinder can certainly be deemed ‘strange’, any single label like this would be too confining. In 13 years, he directed over 40 films, including the 15-hour Berlin Alexannderplatz. Fassbinder also starred in fellow contemporaries work to high regard. Wolf Gremm’s Kamikaze 89, release shortly before Fassbinder’s death at 37, […]

Aliens: 30th Anniversary Edition

Aliens: 30th Anniversary Edition

| September 18, 2016

Writer/director James Cameron may be known best to younger audiences as the man who’s dominated the highest box office earner records for most of the last two decades with his blockbuster pictures, Titanic (1998) and Avatar (2009). Long before that, though, Cameron was cutting his teeth on some of the most iconic sci-fi actioners in […]

The Automatic Hate

The Automatic Hate

| September 15, 2016

Slow-burning serio-comedy The Automatic Hate follows a potent attraction between two cousins from feuding families that climaxes in what one critic called “the most explosively uncomfortable dinner party scene ever.” Joseph Cross, as Davis Green, (Lincoln, Milk) and Adelaide Clemens, as Alexis Green, (The Great Gatsby, Rectify) give stellar performances as the sympathetic Davis and the […]

The Neon Dead

The Neon Dead

| September 14, 2016

It’s always exciting to see the results when special effects artists get in the directing chair, regardless of the outcome. Sometimes you get something with great effects and not much else; more rarely, the final product shows a lot of heart and handmade charm. Perhaps not surprisingly, the higher the budgets the more likely the […]

The Monster of Piedras Blancas

The Monster of Piedras Blancas

| September 10, 2016

Clocking in at a positively brisk running time of an hour and eleven minutes, The Monster of Piedras Blancas (1959) is a bite-size blast of a creature feature from director Irvin Berwick (Malibu High (1979)). In it, a cave-dwelling monster goes on a rampage, decapitating and draining the blood from the inhabitants of a seaside […]
