SYNOPSIS:

A young girl is subjected to a reign of terror so that her soul can be transferred to the body of an old crone.

Film Review: Indie Director (2013)

Indie-Director-2013-movie-Bill-Zebub-2

SYNOPSIS:

Metalhead film director Bill Zebub toils, trying to maintain his integrity, in the world of no-budget, subversive, genre film making.

REVIEW:

Any review of INDIE DIRECTOR would be misguided–incomplete–without an introduction to its notorious creator, Bill Zebub. Maybe you’ve heard of him. Maybe you haven’t. In any case, he’s brash, manic, politically incorrect, obsessed with heavy metal music–and nudity–and, for the past two decades, has been churning out twisted, no-budget shock … Continue reading

Auschwitz-2011-movie-Uwe-Boll-poster-cover

SYNOPSIS:

Controversial director Uwe Boll depicts the harsh reality of the process inside one of the most infamous Nazi death camps by using brutally realistic imagery. Book-ended by documentary footage as well as interviews with German teenagers about what they know about the Holocaust, Boll effectively shows us just how depraved and sadistic life in the camp could be.
