SYNOPSIS:

REVIEW:

While odd and choppy overall, Blood Sisters delivers well in the arena of campy acting. I have to make a confession, though, early on: around midway through this movie, I did begin fantasizing about a realm, where the word “Exploitation film” doesn’t really mean “Movie That Really Sucks!”  Considering this, I … Continue reading

The-Candy-Snatchers-1973-movie-(1)

SYNOPSIS:

An abused autistic boy is the sole witness to the kidnapping of a teenage heiress.

I can’t decide which is more depressing, the fact that I have only just now seen The Candy Snatchers for the very first time, or that this is the only directorial effort by Guerdon Trueblood (aside from an episode of Barnaby Jones — he was primarily a writer, mostly tv shows and movies, but also a little … Continue reading

Fim Review: Wasted Night (short film) (2014)

Wasted-Night-(short-film)-by-Joseph-Catté.mp4.0007

REVIEW:

This is another great little film by the talented young director, Joseph Catté. I had the honour of reviewing another one of his (‘Like A Doll’) earlier on this year and his follow up certainly does not disappoint. He uses the same light-hearted approach to make Wasted Night, in which he manages to get the balance of being quirky and sinister just right – something which isn’t easy to achieve. … Continue reading
