Film Review: Cadavericon (short film) (2002)

Cadavericon-short-film-2002-Marian-Dora-(5)

“Cadavericon” (besides wearing a title that leaves little to the imagination as to what the film is about) is a short black & white piece created as part of Marian Dora’s short film collective for 2002. The piece could easily be mistaken for a documentary film that demonstrates the procedure morticians go thru to prep a body for funeral service. A recent corpse lays naked upon a table as he is lifted, washed, dressed, and … Continue reading

Film Review: Caribbean Sunrise (short film) (2002)

Caribbean-Sunrise-short-film-2002-Marian-Dora-(5)

“Caribbean Sunrise” is a 3 minute short by Marian Dora created in 2002. The piece as a standalone doesn’t offer very much but where it does is in its subtle migration from travel video to death scene. Opening on a scene of a Caribbean paradise showing sunsets, palm tress, and warm winded ocean scenes one might think that they’ve stumbled upon a travel advertisement. In fact I tend to believe the piece was set up … Continue reading

Film Review: Provokation (short film) (2002)

Provokation-(short-film)-(2002).avi.0008

REVIEW: “Provokation” is a 15 minute German short film created by extreme filmmaker Marian Dora. While being one of his earlier shorts, “Provokation” is indeed closer to being a case of “taking things too far” than any type of artistic offering. My viewing of this hard to watch short ended mostly on the question of “why” rather than being impressed on any creative level. The listing for the movie was also absent of actor credits.

Film Review: Visions of Ecstasy (short film) (1989)

Visions-of-Ecstasy-short-film-1989-movie-Nigel-Wingrove-(1)

REVIEW: Visions of Ecstasy created by director/writer Nigel Wingrove has some history behind it. The film itself, if stepping outside of the controversial tones, sort of reminded me of those late night Showtime erotica shorts. The piece is simply a category “nunploitation” film, but where it pushed the envelope lies within the blasphemous elements of the piece.

Top 25 Best Serial Killer Movies of All Time

seven-header

Writing a list of top serial killer films is a rather massive undertaking. While this list is limited to 25, the amount of true serial killer films ranges well over 200. There is also alot of contradiction as to what really constitutes a serial killer film. (For instance if a madman traps a bunch of kids on a house and kills them all, is he a serial killer…or just a lousy host??) Now if you … Continue reading
