Film Review: Teenage Babylon (short film) (1989)

Teenage_Babylon-1989-short-film-4

SYNOPSIS:

Teenage Babylon presents the aftermath of three teenage suicides through the medium of what purports to be 1960s vintage black and white police file footage. The film’s haunting images, evoking teenage love gone wrong, are counterpointed by a series of saccharine torch songs, celebrating falling in love and the end of a masquerade. Through a kind of bathetic synthesis, the dialectic of Eros and Thanatos, love and death, is consummated in the … Continue reading

Film Review: SXXX-80 (short film) (1980)

SXXX80-(short-film).mov.0000

REVIEW:

A very obscure little 8 minute piece bleached in sickly yellow tones that almost certainly gets under you skin with its irritating droning (repeated over and over again). Instantly it is pretty apparent that it is some kind of experimental film you might envision as a perhaps a portion of the clips seen in “The Ring” movie. Directed by Monte Cazazza, we watch a young lady snip at her privates while holding what … Continue reading

Film Review: Mas Carnaza (1997)

Mas_Carnaza-1997-film-2

SYNOPSIS:

Short extreme film directed by Sergio Blasco about a jealous disgruntled ex boyfriend

REVIEW:

This 45 minute splatter film directed by Sergio Blasco ranks more interest for its racy cover than for the film experience itself. Spanish spoken and without subtitles, I was hoping that its visuals might carry the story a bit more than it ended up delivering. Though if you find yourself nodding off during a gore film such as I … Continue reading

The Ministry of Truth broadcasts ceaselessly to the population via its inescapable network of telescreens.

Film Review: Saturday Morning Mystery (2012)

Saturday-Morning-Mystery-2012-Movie

SYNOPSIS:

A struggling group of paranormal investigators get the chance of their careers when offered the opportunity to debunk – or prove – the allegedly supernatural events surrounding an abandoned “haunted” mansion.

REVIEW:

“Ruh Roh” Shaggy, this looks very familiar. Director Spencer Parsons’ latest film, Saturday Morning Mystery begins as a live action parody – or homage, perhaps – of the Scooby-Doo cartoons. The film makers celebrate this comparison to its greatest benefit.

They … Continue reading

quite-a-conundrum-2012-movie-1

Sex, drums, tequila, social networking, a pirate, morning after pills, Jesus and a gun. It’s one hot mess!

Winning the 2012 Feature Film Award at the New York International Independent Film & Video Festival was only the beginning for Thomas L. Phillips’ film Quite A Conundrum, a dark thriller sure to test any amateur sleuth’s wits.

Ratman-1988-5

SYNOPSIS:

For some unknown reason a mad scientist creates a nasty little creature that is part rat and part monkey. One night the little fellow escapes from his cage and goes on a vicious killing spree.

REVIEW:

It’s a well-known fact that I’m completely and utterly terrified of monkeys, and to be honest I’m not too fond of rats either (I think it was because I saw films like Willard, Of … Continue reading

The_Gore_Gore_Girls_1972

SYNOPSIS:

A ditsy reporter enlists the help of a sleazy private eye to solve a series of gory killings of female strippers at a Chicago nightclub.

REVIEW:

Before I start this review, I feel that I need to provide what they call in the business as a “full disclosure.” Herschell Gordon Lewis is one of my filmland heroes, right up there with Russ Meyer and John Waters. I have met him and we … Continue reading

Remote2010-short-film

SYNOPSIS:

Temporarily connected in time, a man tries to prevent the murder of a young woman, living in his house 30 years in the past.

REVIEW:

Let’s not beat around the bush with this – I was really impressed when I watched this short film. And apparently, others were too as Remote won 41 Official Film Festival Selections across the globe and 11 ‘Winner’ Awards. It was in fact so good, that a … Continue reading
