The-Afflicted-poster

SYNOPSIS: A story of incomprehensible abuse delivered by an explosively violent mother of four. Journey through the mind of a child that experiences a living hell, defined and defended by the twisted religious beliefs of her mother. REVIEW: “The Afflicted” is an incredibly depressing film.

Film Review: Raymond Did It (2011)

Raymond-poster-unrated-web

SYNOPSIS: I’m not sure how or why but for some reason I keep getting these e-mail updates from someone named Travis Legge. They seem to come pretty frequently and they kind of annoy me. I never pay them attention nor do I read any of them. I actually thought it was some sort of spam. So when I received the film “Raymond Did It”, I researched the film only to find out that the film … Continue reading

Film Review: Frankenstein: Day of the Beast (2011)

frankenstein-day-of-the-beast

SYNOPSIS: We know the story; we’ve seen the movies. You may think that it’s impossible to have a new approach to Frankenstein… Think again. REVIEW: I guess I never really thought much about it until now but I just realized that I’m not much of a “Frankenstein” fan. I’ve seen MANY of the films and I guess nothing really blew me away. Maybe it was because I was so young when I had watched them, … Continue reading

REVIEW: It’s almost impossible to classify “Father’s Day” (and I’m not talking about that ridiculous film from 1997). This film is the brainchild of Astron-6, who … Continue reading

Film Review: Rosewood Lane (2011)

rosewoodlane-movieposter

SYNOPSIS: When radio talk show psychiatrist, Dr. Sonny Blake, moves back to her hometown, she takes notice of her neighborhood paper boy’s unusual behavior. REVIEW: I hate the fact that these young actresses (or even the older ones) feel the need to have so much plastic surgery done.

THE-SKIN-I-LIVE-IN

SYNOPSIS: A brilliant plastic surgeon, haunted by past tragedies, creates a type of synthetic skin that withstands any kind of damage. His guinea pig: a mysterious and volatile woman who holds the key to his obsession. REVIEW: I’ve never been the biggest Pedro Almodovar fan. I haven’t seen a film of his since “Live Flesh” in 1997. The others I have seen were his early collaborations with Antonio Banderas. Now, Banderas is one of my … Continue reading

SYNOPSIS: Lance Reed is forced by a psychotic stranger to confront his duplicitous past. Seeking retribution for a crime, the man forces Lance to reveal his inner most secrets by systematically removing his limbs. REVIEW: It’s pretty amazing how great films can somehow just glide under the radar. In a way, it’s sad since some of these films end up going unnoticed. On the plus side, when you do stumble upon them, you get that … Continue reading
