  1. Blu-ray Review: "Microwave Massacre" (1983)

    Construction worker Donald (Jackie Vernon) is having a hard time getting anything good to eat since his wife has decided to only cook gourmet foods. That and her constant harping cause him to snap, and he whacks her. Somewhere in the confusion he comes up with a new use for the microwave oven, and begins to eat much better. Soon he's experimenting with different recipes. And different meats.

    AllMovie wrote, "Despite utterly failing as comedy, horror and pornography, Microwave ...
  2. The Erratic Klaus Kinski: A Book Review

    “One should judge a man mainly from his depravities. Virtues can be faked. Depravities are real.” – Klaus Kinski

    Klaus Kinski is one of those actors who captures the audience’s attention. Sometimes because of his acting, but more often because of his distinct, intense look and the gaze of his eyes.

    From the vaults of the golden age of slasher films comes “Lake Nowhere”, a raucous, bloody romp which resurrects the thrill of gory midnight movies for an hour-long plunge into the depths of horror.

    The idea of “throwbacks” or things being “retro” is nothing new, and some ideas from this movie’s composition seem to be heavily inspired by the Tarantino-Rodriguez “Grindhouse” films, what with the fake trailers and all. This is not to take anything away from “Lake Nowhere”, because in ...
  5. Fantasia Film Fest 2016: A Review of "Shelley"

    Louise (Ellen Dorrit Petersen) and Kasper (Peter Christoffersen) want to become parents but Louise is unable to have children. She seals a pact with her Romanian maid, Elena (Cosmina Stratan), to bear Louise's child, but things don't turn out as they planned.

    What sort of feeling or anticipation do we get when we approach “Shelley”? At first, the name evokes thoughts of Frankenstein’s monster, but we quickly see this might not be the best parallel. The plot is much closer to a modern ...
