REVIEW: As I was watching Kevin Smith’s latest film, Tusk, I began to wonder who came onto the Hollywood scene first: Smith or Quentin Tarantino? I had this thought because a lot of the dialog here is Tarantino-esque in … Continue reading

Kevin Smith Returning To Horror – And Bringing Haley Joel Osment Along For The Ride!

kevin-smith

Haley Joel Osment, now there’s a name we haven’t heard in a while. I shouldn’t need to remind you but he was the little kid who saw “dead people” in THE SIXTH SENSE. Well, he’s not a little kid anymore and to the best of my knowledge hasn’t made a lot of films, especially horror films in quite a while but he just landed himself a pretty major gig. Kevin Smith has cast him in … Continue reading

Top 20 Cult Film Directors

Stanley-Kubrick-cultfilms

Celebrate the day! Being a long time follower of cult films over the years, I figured it was due time to create an appropriate Top 20 list of Cult Film Directors for readers who might “still” be seeking out worthy films to indulge in (Director collectives..that is). I knew creating this list that not every favorite cult director would make it on here (meaning in the public’s eye and that it was limited to 20). … Continue reading

Film Review: Red State (2011)

Red-State-2011-movie-1

SYNOPSIS: Set in Middle America, a group of teens receive an online invitation for sex, though they soon encounter fundamentalists with a much more sinister agenda. REVIEW: The Black Saint was never really much of a Kevin Smith fan, Not that the man isn’t talented. None of his films (Besides “Dogma”) have ever struck me as particularly entertaining. And yes, I am including “Clerks” when I say this. I just don’t get the cult behind … Continue reading
