Created in 1987 by Rick Priestly and Games Workshop, Warhammer 40,000 has gone on to be one of the most successful tabletop games that has lasted for more than 20 years. Spawning tons of expansions, novels and even video games, plenty of things have managed to carry the torch of Warhammer 40K. Back in 2009, […]

Life is always better when you’re winning. Less than a month ago I found myself watching Showgirls, Paul Verhoevan’s effusively sexual story about a young girl learning the ins & outs of pole dancing in Las Vegas. What was so troubling about the production of the film, released in 1995, was not so much the big budget irresponsibility […]

Silent Night, Deadly Night: Double Feature

The surprising thing about Silent Night, Deadly Night–you know, that film about a serial killer in a Santa Claus suit– is how straight the whole thing’s played. Although the film stirred concerned parents around the country into an uproar back in 1984 over its blatant exploitation of Christmas imagery to make a quick, B-movie buck, […]

Silent Night

Looking back at the original Silent Night, Deadly Night, it’s difficult to imagine that anyone could have taken the film seriously at all. It’s even more difficult to think that anyone could be genuinely offended by it– despite some nasty moments, the film is basically a ridiculous parody of the very idea of a Christmas-themed […]

For 15 years, Bob Pickler (Ty Burrell) has dominated the Iowa state butter sculpting competition.  His wife Laura (Jennifer Gardner) sees the competition as a stepping stone to fame and prestige, so when Bob agrees to not compete this year and give someone else a chance, Laura loses it and enters the competition herself.  Also […]

Molloy (Ray Liotta) has turned his life around.  He used to drink and do drugs endlessly, and commit armed robbery with his friend and partner Yates (Dominic Purcell; Prison Break).  In the three years since Yates was sent to prison, and Molloy subsequently hit rock bottom, he has managed to get sober, get a real […]

Vamps Brings Heckerling and Silverstone Together Again

The era of Clueless may have come and gone, but the party-girls still have some unfinished business to attend to. Alicia Silverstone – branded forever as Cher “As If!” Horowitz – reunites this fall with the director who made her a household name back in 1995: Amy Heckerling. The writer/director of the classic high school comedy is […]

The original Halloween franchise continues its slow progress to Blu-ray with Anchor Bay’s latest set of reissues. Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers and Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers were previously released on DVD by Anchor Bay and eventually released in a 2-pack together, although the new Blu-rays are sold separately. Are […]

Some Guy Who Kills People

Kevin Corrigan is very likely a familiar face to many film fans, even if they don’t know him by name. He’s appeared in dozens of films and television shows, one of those character actors whose appearance on screen is happily greeted with “Hey, it’s That Guy!” And so it makes some sense that the promotional […]

The Aggression Scale

The Aggression Scale

| June 5, 2012 | 0 Comments

The Aggression Scale is one of the weirdest amalgamations of a home invasion film I’ve ever seen. It draws inspiration from so many different films, everything from Home Alone to Gummo and makes something completely radical. The film follows a group of hit men, led by Lloyd (Dana Ashbrook) that are on the hunt to […]
