Film Review: Groupie (2010)

groupie

SYNOPSIS:

When a mysterious groupie joins legendary cursed band, “The Dark Knights”, a series of unexplained murders derails their comeback tour.

 

REVIEW:

When I think of Mark L. Lester, I expect a film to revel in excess. Maybe excessive violence, excessive, nudity, or excessively bad dialogue and one-liners. I haven’t followed his career since 1991 when he directed the ridiculous action classic “Showdown in Little Tokyo” with Dolph … Continue reading

Film Review: Trash Humpers (2009)

Trash-Humpers-3

SYNOPSIS:

Follows the lives of a small group of sociopathic elderly people in Nashville, Tennessee

REVIEW:

I would be hard pressed to say I saw an amazing film last night though I will say that I saw a extremely bizarre film. One that really defies logic. The movie “Trash Jumpers” probably needs more introduction before being watched than a random viewing like how I experienced it. This film which feels like … Continue reading

TheEclipse-Movie-2009-2

SYNOPSIS:

Throw in plenty of drama, a few ghosts and some vacationing writers on tour and you have yourself a helping of “The Eclipse”. The funny thing I was thinking after the filme moved to final creditswas…. is horror just as effective if it’s used in … Continue reading

With all the types of torture films coming out today, it was only a matter of time before we were approached with a more “suburban family goes on a rampage” version. What is different here is that this film feels on … Continue reading
