Film Review: Baise Moi (2000)

baise-moi-4

SYNOPSIS:

Not for the faint-hearted. Baise-Moi, literally translated as ‘Fuck Me’, defies categories – it features p*rnographic sex scenes & violent shootings, but it won’t fit anyone’s definition of an erotic thriller. After separately committing murders, two French women (Karen Lancaume & RaffaĂ«la Anderson) join together in a spree of crime & sex.

Because both have endured abuse at the hands of men, the movie seems to start as a self-righteous … Continue reading

Film Review: Enter The Dark (short film) (2010)

EnterTheDark

REVIEW:

I saw a pretty cool 17 minute short today, that actually gave me the chills. I say that because I’ve drolled thru countless features that didn’t even come close to that. Enter Todd Miro’s “Enter The Dark”, a chilling little piece that grabs onto the elements of ghost chasing, paranormal activity and some comic flair into 1 solid little piece. This piece brings back a sense of the old “Gallery” … Continue reading

Before you make too many assumptions, Hell is a film about the future when the sun has increased the Earth’s temperature by 10 degrees Celsius. This change has turned much of what the world “was” into an apocalyptic landscape for survival. In fact it is year 2016 to be exact (not that far off for us). The … Continue reading
