Hair by James-Masaki Ryan (17th November 2019)

"Hair" (1979) Claude (played by John Savage) is a young man from rural Oklahoma that arrives in New York, en route to Vietnam to join the war effort in the Army. It is there that he meets a group of free loving, free living hippies who are about the same age as him. Led by Berger (played by Treat Williams), their young group immediately befriends the new guy in town, by introducing him to their lifestyle of drugs and love which is completely new to him. While Claude finds the lifestyle intriguing, he has his eyes on the beautiful Sheila (played by Beverly D'Angelo), and upper class young woman he spots at the park. Berger helps out by sneaking Claude and the rest of the hippies into a hosted ritzy party. They all may come from different backgrounds and different places, but they all come together in peace in "Hair". Based on the 1968 Broadway play of the same name written by Gerome Ragni and James Rado, "H...


Nightbreed AKA Clive Barker's Nightbreed (Blu-ray) by Paul Lewis (17th November 2019)

Nightbreed (Clive Barker, 1990) Synopsis: Haunted by recurring dreams of strange, inhuman creatures who inhabit a seemingly mythical space named Midian, Aaron Boone (Craig Sheffer) is under the care of psychiatrist Dr Decker (David Cronenberg). However, having come to find that these dreams – which were once nightmares – are no longer unwelcome, Boone hasn’t visited Decker in four months. When, one night, Boone wakes from one of these dreams in the arms of his lover, rock singer Lori (Anne Bobby), Lori convinces Boone to re-engage with Decker, and Boone arranges a meeting with the psychiatrist. However, Boone is unaware that Decker lives a secret life as a serial killer who massacres whole families ritualistically. Decker has slaughtered ‘six families in ten months’ and, using a combination of hallucinogenic drugs and authoritative suggestion, convinces Boone that Boone has committed these crimes. Tormented and hallucinating, Boone wanders i...


Emmanuelle by Robert Segedy (16th November 2019)

Ah, "Emmanuelle", the mere mention of that name transports me back in time when I was but a teenager and this cinematic gem made its rounds. I can recall seeing the ads for such films as this in the Philadelphia Enquirer when I was ogling the film ads looking for horror films and other interesting tidbits that were playing in the big city. This was years before the joys of cable television, Cinemax and other venues of ill-gotten thrills were difficult to come by and required setting the alarm clock to get up in the middle of the night to try and watch some scrambled channel that was unwatchable nonetheless. Back in the 70’s, sex still sold and it was something that occupied almost all of my waking hours. Films like "Emmanuelle", "The Story of O" (1975) and Penthouse magazine all are mashed together in a feverish vision of illicit pleasures. Ask any male whose adolescence corresponded with the 70’s and if they are honest, they will tell you that it was truly an age of sneaking glimpses at the female form in anyway, shape or form. So it is with an odd somewhat guilt ridden feeling that I present this review for your enjoyment. Originally given an "X" rating, the film was based on the bestselling novel by ...


Emmanuelle 2 by Robert Segedy (16th November 2019)

The original star of "Emmanuelle" (1974) is back at it again in the sequel and Sylvia Kristel is up for many more adventures of the same ilk as she had in the first film. Emmanuelle is on board a ship headed for Hong Kong after a two month separation from her husband Jean (Umberto Orsini) and she is raring to go. Finding herself assigned to a crowded cabin of women instead of a single cabin like she had paid for, Emmanuelle is cranky and upset. Turns out that the lady in the next bed had the same misfortune that she did and soon these two will be better acquaintances. Woken in the middle of the night by her cabin mate, Emmanuelle asks the woman what is wrong. The woman then confesses a story of how she was raped by three Asian women and that she lost her virginity that way. Various steamy scenes are intermittently spliced into the flashback and later on we are told that the story was merely a means of capturing Emmanuelle’s interest. Yeah, that old chestnut, never works for me as a come on line. As in the first film, Emmanuelle will disrobe at the drop of a hat and enjoys the compa...


Goodbye Emmanuelle by (16th November 2019)

"Goodbye Emmanuelle" picks up two years after the events in "Emmanuelle 2" (1975) and this time we are in beautiful Seychelles, and Emmanuelle (Sylvia Kristel) and her husband Jean (Umberto Orsin) are still up to their old tricks. They still enjoy other people in bed but their relationship still seems to be going strong. Things are about to change when a new stranger enters their relaxed lives: the stranger is a young film director named Gregory (Jean-Pierre Bouvier) and Emmanuelle feels an immediate attraction to him. The two hook up but they have a rocky start and he sort of treats Emmanuelle like a whore, even offering her money which merely insults Emmanuelle. She gets dressed and leaves him to his own devices. But there is something about Gregory that Emmanuelle can’t leave alone and days later she spies him with another woman and jealousy strikes. Intrigued by this new emotion, Emmanuelle starts asking around about the other woman and later she is invited to the house to have dinner. I was surprised by the directi...

Cujo (Standard Edition) by Eric Cotenas (13th November 2019)

Castle Rock housewife Donna Trenton (The Howling's Dee Wallace) is bored with life. Her husband Vic (Hardcastle and McCormick's Daniel Hugh Kelly) has a fulfilling career as an advertising executive but is always away. Her young son Tad (Who's the Boss?'s Danny Pintauro) lives in fear of the dark and a monster in the closet and only daddy knows the magic words to protect him. Even her affair with the local stud handyman Steve (Love Me Deadly's Christopher Stone, Wallace's husband at the time) feels like a pathetic cliché, and its resolution unfolds just as explosively as expected. When a public relations scandal hits the Sharp Cereal brand and Vic is called...


One Less God by James-Masaki Ryan (10th November 2019)

"One Less God" (2017) On November 26, 2008, a group of ten Islamic terrorists from Lashkar-e-Taiba launched a series of bombings and attacks in Mumbai over a four day period, killing 174 and wounding over 300 in the process. Of all the places where attacks occurred, the five-star luxurious Taj Mahal Palace Hotel was one of the biggest targets, where 31 people were killed during the siege. While many were rescued quickly, there were quite a lot of people who were trapped for days, locked in rooms and not knowing if it was either help at the door, other patrons looking for other survivors, or the terrorists looking to find hostages or people to kill. "One Less God" takes a look at the Mumbai attacks from the perspective of some hotel patrons. Whether they are backpacking foreigners, musicians, businessmen, journalists, the elderly, or children, they must do whatever possible together and trust one another in order to survive the ordeal. Over the years there have been a number of films based around the November 2008 attacks in Mumbai. The Indian film "The Attacks of 26/11", the French film ...


The Queen of Spades by Eric Cotenas (10th November 2019)

BAFTA Film Award Best British Film (winner) - BAFTA Awards, 1950 Grand Prize of the Festival: Thorold Dickinson (winner) - Cannes Film Festival, 1949 It is 1806 and the gambling craze Faro has spread to Russia, making and breaking fortunes among the soldier class who stand to lose anything from a month's pay to entire family legacies. Aristocratic officer Fyodor (Midnight Lace's Anthony Dawson) bristles at the seeming disapproving presence of engineer Herman Suvorin (The Red Shoes' Anton Walbrook) who is invited among the officer class by Fyodor's best friend Andrei (The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb's Ronald Howard) but never plays. Far from disapproving, Herman cannot afford to play, hav...


Der Golem by Eric Cotenas (10th November 2019)

In the Jewish ghetto of medieval Prague, Rabbi Loew (The Jew of Mestri's Albert Steinrück) has curried the favor of the Emperor (Fridericus Rex's Otto Gebühr) by providing his horoscope and entertaining the kingdom with feats of magic; however, the danger he sees in the stars for the Jewish people comes in the Emperor's decree that all Jews must leave the city before the new moon on charges (citing not only the blood libel but also the practice of black magic). The decree is delivered to Rabbi Jehuda (The Lost Shadow's Hans Stürm) by foppish Squire Florian (Destiny's Lothar Müthel) who takes him to Loew. Loew begs Florian to take a secret message back to the Emperor begging an audience with him ...


Yomeddine by Eric Cotenas (8th November 2019)

Karole (Antonia.'s Linda Caridi) and Alessia ( Small Homeland 's Maria Roveran) have decided that they want to have a child together. Due to Italy's policies regarding In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) – particularly with regard to gay and lesbian couples – the pair must travel to Spain for the procedure and have decided to turn their apartment into a bed and breakfast using the spare bedroom frequented by Alessia's actor ex-boyfriend Andrea (Blue Kids' Andrea Tagliaferri) who Alessia regards as "like a cat" who will find any comfortable corner to sleep. After the first attempt at the procedure fails, doubt starts to creep into their relationship. Alessia becomes stressed about the toll the hormone treatments are taking on her body while Karole becomes increasingly impatient with the demands of their guests and the fifth wheel that is Andrea and h...


Dead Center (The) (Blu-ray) by Paul Lewis (2nd November 2019)

The Dead Center (Billy Senese, 2018) Synopsis: The body of an unidentified man (Jeremy Childs) is examined by Dr Graham (Bill Freehely), a coroner. The man, listed as a ‘John Doe’, apparently committed suicide. However, during the night the John Doe wakes up in the morgue and escapes. With no memory of his previous life, the John Doe manages to find his way to a psychiatric ward before falling into a catatonic state; there, a well-intentioned junior psychiatrist, Daniel Forrester (Shane Carruth), forges the necessary paperwork to suggest the John Doe has given consent to being admitted to the ward. During the night, the John Doe grabs an orderly, Travis (J Thomas Bailey), who subsequently becomes violently sick. The next day, Travis’ corpse is found, his mouth opened in a silent scream. Meanwhile, Dr Graham discovers that the John Doe’s corpse has disappeared and investigates, visiting the motel where the body was found. There, Graham is told by the motel owner that the disco...


Night Hunter by Eric Cotenas (29th October 2019)

When the body of young woman is found on top of a logging truck, dead of an apparent fall from an overhead bridge, coroner Biggs (Devil's Gate's Beverly Ndukwu) discovers evidence that the victim was in long-term captivity, her ear drums blown out with only soft tissue damage, and that she was given vitamin supplements and birth control. Upon discovering the identity of the girl who disappeared after making an internet acquaintance, homicide lieutenant Marshall (Man of Steel's Henry Cavill) becomes even more wary of his ex-wife Angie's (The Roommate's Minka Kelly) concerns about their daughter Faye's (The Giver's Emma Tremblay) social media activity. Marshall...


At War by Eric Cotenas (29th October 2019)

Palme d'Or : Stéphane Brizé (nominated) - Cannes Film Festival, 2018 In the French village of Agen, eleven hundred auto parts workers are on strike when Perrin Inudstrie is set to close its doors two years into a five year agreement to protect the workers' jobs if they took on extra hours in place of a pay raise. Closing the plant will lead to fifty percent unemployment for the town and the workers – lead by engineer Laurent Amédéo (Le Moustache's Vincent Lindon) – consider the severance package an insult, shooting down claims by the company accountants that the reason is due to competition rather than the shareholder profits and accusing Borderie (Jacques Borderie) as going back on his word as he claims that they are all in the same boat and that the decision to shut the plant and move jobs to Romania is the decision of the CEO of the German Dimke Group who own the Perrin plants in Agen and Montceau among hundreds of other companies. ...


Last Action Hero / Hudson Hawk by James-Masaki Ryan (27th October 2019)

"Last Action Hero" (1993) Danny (played by Austin O'Brien) is a young boy who loves action movies, especially the ones with the character of Jack Slater (played by Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is a rogue cop that gets into plenty of action and doesn't play by the rules. Danny goes to the local vintage theater which is fairly empty and run down, where the elderly projectionist Nick (played by Robert Prosky befriends the young boy, and invites him to the pre-screening of the newest Jack Slater film. One thing special that Nick gives for Danny entering the theater is what he calls a magic ticket that has been passed down from Harry Houdini onward, but little do they know the magic is real, and magically transports Danny into the film world itself. Suddenly he is a young sidekick to Jack Slater, and must follow the rules of Hollywood action cinema to help the story unfold. "Last Action Hero" plays in two worlds - reality in New York City with middle school student Danny going through a tough life, and the world of ...


Last Action Hero / Hudson Hawk by James-Masaki Ryan (27th October 2019)

"Hudson Hawk" (1991) Fresh out of a lengthy prison sentence, cat burglar Eddie "Hudson Hawk" Hawkins (played by Bruce Willis) is ready to lay low as a free man, but things don't particularly go his way. His old partner Tommy "Five-Tone" Messina (played by Danny Aiello) has a legitimate bar, but trouble comes with the Marios (played by Frank Stallone and Carmine Zozzora) who basically give Hudson no choice but to do a job stealing a priceless piece from an upcoming auction. Hudson and Tommy do the job like old times, with their signature way of timing out the process through songs - singing a tune which according to their rhythm should be entirely on cue to each other. But the job is much more complicated, as the millionaire heads of Mayflower Industries Darwin and Minerva Mayflower (played by Richard E. Grant and Sandra Bernhard) are involved in the acquisition, and secret...


To Hell and Back (Blu-ray) by James-Masaki Ryan (26th October 2019)

"To Hell and Back" (1955) Audie Murphy (played by Audie Murphy) was born in rural Texas and lived his childhood as a farmboy in a large but broken family. His father abandoned the family years ago, and his mother died when Audie was a teenager, leaving the younger children in the family having to be taken into foster care by the state. In addition to the family troubles, the attack of Pearl Harbor sends the United States into war, and Audie decides to fight for his country as well as using his earnings to help his younger siblings and receive an education. Though he is at first turned down by multiple branches, he is finally able to lend his services to the Army, where he is immediately picked on for his young age and small size. Unlikely as it may seem, this is the true story of a young soldier who became the most decorated soldier in the war, including receiving a Medal of Honor when he was 19 years old, and later a major movie star that starred in his own film about the dangers he faced in war. Audie Murphy released his memoir of World War II entitled "To Hell and Back" in 1949, just after his launch in Hollywood a...

The Fate of Lee Khan by Eric Cotenas (20th October 2019)

In the middle of the fourteenth century, General Zhu is leading a rebellion of 100,000 soldiers against the Yuan dynasty, but espionage is rampant on both sides and Mongol general Lee Khan (A Better Tomorrow's Feng Tien) is about to get his hands on a map of Zhu's battle plans from traitorous general Shen Tiansong through the machinations of his cruel sister Princess Lee Wan-erh (To Kill with Intrigue's Feng Hsu). To not arouse suspicion, Khan and his sister plan to meet with the general at the Welcoming Spring Inn while making a district visit. The proprietress Madame Wan Jen-mi (The Magnificent Concubine's Li Hua Li) is appraised of his visit by local tavern manager Mr. Liu (The Vengeful Beauty's ...


The House That Jack Built by James-Masaki Ryan (20th October 2019)

"The House That Jack Built" (2018) Jack (played by Matt Dillon) is a serial killer, who killed quite a number of people within a dozen years, and stored the corpses in his warehouse freezer. In conversation with the mysterious entity that calls himself Verge (played by Bruno Ganz), he recalls five incidents of his killings, while also discussing about art, music, architecture, and childhood. In the incidents seen, Jack is not exactly a well planned killer. His first victim (played by Uma Thurman) was more or less done as retaliation against a frustrating woman passing through town which causes him to suddenly snap. The second victim, a widow (played by Siobhan Fallon Hogan) has Jack pretending to be a cop and his lies being very badly planned out, as well as his method of killing. But from thereon, Jack's methods and tactics become much more precise and obsessive. Jack is obsessive compulsive, and also an architect who is longing to design and build his dream house, but...


Toys Are Not For Children AKA How to Make Love to a Virgin AKA Virgin Dolls (Blu-ray) by Paul Lewis (20th October 2019)

Toys are Not for Children (Stanley Brasloff, 1972) Synopsis: Twenty year old Jamie Godard (Marcia Forbes) lives with her shrill harridan of a mother Edna (Fran Warren), Jamie’s father Philip (Peter Lightstone) having left the family when Jamie was a child. Jamie has an idealised image of her father, which Edna tries to demolish at every opportunity, telling her daughter that Philip cavorted with prostitutes. However, since Jamie was a small child, Philip has sent her toys; Jamie has kept these gifts, playing with her toys into adulthood. Jamie works at a toy shop owned by Max Gunther (N J Osrag). One day at work, Jamie meets a middle-aged woman, Pearl Valdi (Evelyn Kingsley), who claims to know Jamie’s father. Pearl tells Jamie her address in New York City, inviting Jamie to come over.

Eddie attempts to rape Jamie but is stopped by Pearl. Returning home, Jamie tells Edna of her meeting wit...


Legend of the Witches / Sacred Rites by James-Masaki Ryan (14th October 2019)

"Legend of the Witches" (1970) "Sacred Rites" (1971) When most people hear the term "Witch", there are many stereotypes and stories heard for many generations. Ugly green skinned women, supernatural powers, a mystical cauldron, flying on broomsticks, human sacrifices, etc. With films such as "The Wizard of Oz", "Haxan" or even "The Craft", the occult of the twisted and evil are portrayed and there are even the opposite with works such as "Kiki's Delivery Service" portraying witches in a more positive light. But these cinematic works are quite far from what Wiccan culture was and has been, with exaggerations over reality. Persecuted and misunderstood for generations, Wiccans and Witchcraft have never had a positive view around the world, even if their culture shares quite a lot with Christianity. Spirituality together with belief i...

Alice, Sweet Alice by Robert Segedy (11th October 2019)

"Alice, Sweet Alice" is a fine example of a neglected horror film classic that is finally being re-issued on Blu-Ray and features a brand new 2k restoration of the theatrical version from the original camera negative by our friends at Arrow Video. I recall seeing this film on late night television and I thought that it was great; in fact, seeing this gorgeous version is even better and the film definitely holds up well, no matter its age. Unquestionably influenced by the films of Alfred Hitchcock, the Giallos of Mario Bava, and Nicolas Roeg’s classic "Don’t Look Now" (1973), director Alfred Sole nevertheless manages to create a unique film that is all his own. Filmed entirely on location in Paterson, New Jersey, the director’s home town, this film works on several unsettling levels: a treatise on religious guilt, an early entry into the yet to come slasher genre, a nerve racking who done it mystery, and at its base, an examination of the creepy child syndrome. This is an American original, shot on a low budget, but filled with a talented ...


Un Coeur en Hiver by Eric Cotenas (11th October 2019)

BAFTA Film Award (Best Film not in the English Language): Jean-Louis Livi, Philippe Carcassonne, and Claude Sautet (nomianted) - BAFTA Awards, 1994 César (Best Supporting Actor): André Dussollier (winner), Best Director: Claude Sautet (winner), Best Film: Claude Sautet (nominated), Best Actor: Daniel Auteuil (nominated), Best Actress: Emmanuelle Béart (nominated), Best Supporting Actress: Brigitte Catillon (nominated), Best Screenplay, Original or Adaptation: Jacques Fieschi (nominated), Best Cinematography: Yves Angelo (nominated), Best Sound: ...


Cobra: Collector's Edition by Anthony Arrigo (11th October 2019)

There was a time when Sylvester Stallone ruled the box office with two of the biggest films of the 80's – “Rambo: First Blood Part II” (1985) and “Rocky IV” (1985) – having the second and third highest grosses of that year. The man had already given cinema two highly popular, enduring characters – why not go for one more? Circling back around to ideas he had during the production of “Beverly Hills Cop” (1984) – before it turned comedic and went to Eddie Murphy - Stallone sought to make a hard-edged police thriller filled with action. “Cobra” (1986), loosely based on Paula Gosling’s 1974 novel “Fair Game”, could have been another notch on Stallone’s Tough Guy Characters belt, but incessant meddling from both the studio and Stallone himself crippled the picture. Entire scenes were cut, subplots were eviscerated, and loads of brutal violence hit the cutting room floor and, to this day, have only resurfaced in the form of a very crude work print bootleg tape. Once the film moves past the opening scene the entire picture feels rushed, ...


Cold Pursuit by Anthony Arrigo (11th October 2019)

After experiencing a late-career resurgence as an instrument of vengeance, Liam Neeson seemed to be content getting typecast in the same Charles Bronson-esque role over and over, much to the delight of paying audiences. Beginning with “Taken” (2008), nearly every picture of his since has been marketed with the same slant – even if that isn’t the case. It would be easy to assume “Cold Pursuit” (2019) is no different, as the basic premise is Neeson’s character looking to get revenge on drug dealers for his son’s murder. That much is true, but what the trailers can’t easily sell are the film’s Scandinavian sensibilities and off-kilter humor, both of which come courtesy of director Hans Petter Moland, making an American debut by remaking his own 2014 Norwegian film, “In Order of Disappearance”. Nels Coxman (Liam Neeson) is a snowplow driver in the city of Kehoe, Colorado, a quiet town that recently awarded him the honor of “Citizen of the Year”. Nels lives in a modest cabin with hi...


Ma by Anthony Arrigo (11th October 2019)

Octavia Spencer is an incredibly gifted actor; on this, just about everyone can agree. So, when her latest thriller, “Ma” (2019), hit theaters it was no surprise to hear unanimous praise heaped upon her performance. But in that regard it’s kinda like, yea… no kidding. It would be notable if she didn’t nail it. Outside of an expectedly solid performance, what else does the latest micro-budget film from Blumhouse have to offer? Not a whole lot, unfortunately. The filmmakers married themselves to the ethos of “it isn’t how you start, it’s how you finish”, delivering a 99-minute movie that moves like molasses on a cold day… until a batshit crazy finale that seems like it was designed to assist viewers in forgetting virtually nothing of substance has happened for a good hour-and-change. Maggie (Diana Silvers) and her mother, Erica (Juliette Lewis), have just moved back to Erica’s small hometown in Ohio after dad decided to exit the picture. There, Maggie immediately hooks up with the Generic High School crowd – featuring all of the same caricature personalities we see in every single hor...


Night of the Creeps: Collector's Edition by Anthony Arrigo (11th October 2019)

Fred Dekker’s career is frequently cited by me (and many others, I’m sure) as one of those frustrating “what if?” scenarios. What if, after delivering two of horror’s most celebrated cult classics – “Night of the Creeps” (1986) and “The Monster Squad” (1987) – Dekker had continued to work within the genre he so clearly loves, turning down what was certainly a generous offer to co-write and direct “RoboCop 3” (1993)? That oft-maligned feature put his directorial career into an early grave, one from which it has yet to be exhumed. Dekker has spent the past 25-ish years as a script doctor, albeit uncredited, working behind the scenes but not behind the camera; his only credited film work being a co-writer credit on Shane Black’s bizarrely awful “The Predator” (2018). Nobody will ever know what could have been. Hypotheticals aside, Dekker’s first directorial effort sees him blending 50's sci-fi camp with 80's horror and gruesome practical FX work which, combined with the machismo might of Tom Atkins, makes for one of the most entertainin...

They Made Me a Fugitive AKA I Became a Criminal (Blu-ray) by Rick Curzon (26th October 2019)

Directed by Alberto Cavalcanti (Went the Day Well?, Dead of Night), They Made Me a Fugitive is a prime example of British film noir. Trevor Howard (Who?, The Missionary) plays Clem Morgan, an RAF officer during the war, now unemployed since demobilisation. Turning to the black market, he finds himself embroiled in a life of crime that will lead to prison, a daring escape, and a deadly manhunt.
