Sin City: A Dame To Kill For (2014) is Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s return to Marv, Dwight and Nancy. It is all style over substance in glorious black and white with spectacular 3D and fun performances from Mickey Rourke and Eva Green. But Mr. Miller may have slid too far into seedy life behind Sin City without any meaning.
Doc shares the horror news of the week with news of The Omen on TV, the series finale of True Blood and the trailer for Exists. Joseph Perry returns this week with more details from PiFan, the extraordinary fantasy film fest from South Korea.
Co-hosts Doc Rotten, Santos (The Black Saint) Ellin Jr., Dave Dreher, Thomas Mariani and Vixen, the voice of reason, are back again this week to give you the best in horror as they recap, review and obliterate all that is horror this week! This week we announce that it is time to enter for a chance to win Anchor Bay’s The Walking Dead Season 4 Blu-Ray.
Sin City: A Dame To Kill For (2014)
Thomas is livid about having to watch yet another Robert Rodriguez movie and even Santos is saddened to realized something about his darling Jessica Alba. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For drops quietly into the theaters this past weekend landing at number 8…NUMBER 8! Oh, my. The grue-crew stomp all over this disappointing entry. The film is visually stunning but intellectually void.
