zeiklogo3

It’s that time of year again, when all our sick little fancies ooze out of our psyches, after an eleven month stint being buried deep within repression-land, and everyone gets to be whoever, or whatever, they want, if just for the night.

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
