Film Review: Lyle (2014)

Lyle-2014-Movie-3

SYNOPSIS:

A mother’s grief over the death of her toddler leads to horror.

REVIEW:

It may ruffle feathers, but I’ve never been able to get into “Rosemary’s Baby.”  Though I enjoy Ira Levin‘s novel and appreciate Roman Polanski’s artful interpretation (we’ll pretend this year’s made-for-television debacle never happened), that nagging sensation of being bored to tears still carries over from my first viewing as a child.  I’ve tried to fight it, friends.  Believe … Continue reading

Film Review: The Bunnyman Massacre (2014)

The-Bunnyman-Massacre-Artwork

SYNOPSIS:
Joe’s violent brother, armed with a chainsaw and an over-sized, bloody bunny suit, goes on another rampage gathering fresh supplies for his special brand of beef jerky.

REVIEW:
The Bunnyman Massacre wants to be The Texas Chainsaw Massacre in a big, hungry way. In many ways, it succeeds; in many more ways, it fails miserably. There is an audience for this type of masochistic nonsense void of story and lacking … Continue reading

Sin_city_a_dame_to_kill_for_2014-movie-banner

SYNOPSIS:

Some of Sin City’s most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with a few of its more reviled inhabitants.

REVIEW:

Weaving together two of Miller’s classic stories with new tales, the town’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more notorious inhabitants.

Ten years ago, Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller set the world of cinema on its collective ear with their extremely stylized and heavily fetishistic film version of Miller’s comic series … Continue reading

Film Review: The Beast (short film) (2012)

The-Beast-2012-shortfilm

SYNOPSIS:

THE BEAST is a short horror film about the internal struggle that a father faces when his young boy is afflicted with the curse of the werewolf.

REVIEW:

Saying that this is simply another werewolf movie doesn’t do The Beast any justice whatsoever. Yes, the main premise is very closely tied with the concept of a werewolf, but this short film focuses more on a father’s moral dilemma. Should you kill your … Continue reading

Film Review: The Manson Family (2003)

The_manson_family_film_1

SYNOPSIS:

You’ve seen the story through the eyes of the law… Now see it through the eyes of The Manson Family

REVIEW:

“The Manson Family”, filmed under the title “Charlie’s Family”, is a wild, brutal, shocking, psychedelic, unique experience in film, a sensory overload of mayhem and depravity. It is a film with true power; I was practically in shock after finishing this masterpiece. Unlike other Charles Manson films this one … Continue reading

Film Review: Weekend (1967)

“A supposedly idyllic weekend trip to the countryside turns into a never-ending nightmare of traffic jams, revolution, cannibalism and murder as French bourgeois society starts to collapse under the weight of its own consumer preoccupations.” (courtesy IMDB)

REVIEW:

For most of the sixties, genre cinema had been going through a very quiet period and, incidentally, not making any money for the film studios either. Of the few real hits in fantastic … Continue reading
