  1. Interview with Mark Torgl, "The Toxic Avenger"

    When it comes to the world of celebrities, you have the A-list, the B-list and so on, with the lower end typically seen as Kathy Griffin’s D-list. But alumni of Troma movies more often than not fall even lower on the scale… down towards a letter beyond the alphabet. Be that as it may, in the right circles, the Troma team is regarded in even higher esteem than the A-list.

    Mark Torgl is one such former Troma associate, and arguably one of the greatest. More people have tattooed Mark’s ...

    There's something to be said for those creepy religious cult flicks - whether it be an enigmatic kook of a leader to draw the audience in, or the zealous throngs that flock to his every word. In any event, these movies have always appealed to me at one point or another, and when I got a copy of MEET ME THERE in my sweaty little paws, I'll excite-o-meter shot up a few notches...alas, the inevitable downfall occurred, and here we GO!

    Accompanied by Padre Luigi, a true exorcist, Joe Marino travels to the south of Italy, a place where the sacred and profane have always lived together, where Christian rituals are inextricably linked to the pagan ones.

    First, a brief note on exorcism films: whether or not there were films about exorcism prior to "The Exorcist", that film set a benchmark that all others must now contend with. There are two ways to approach this: try to make a better film, or try to make a ...
  5. Review: Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

    If I was forced to pick just one film to watch this summer it wouldn’t have superheroes, dinosaurs or Tom Cruise hanging outside a taxiing airplane. Nope. My film would include an apocalyptic future full of car chases and carnage. In short, my pick would be Mad Max: Fury Road.
