goon occasions

By Svetlana Fedotov Having just passed its 15th anniversary, Dark Horse’s The Goon has been an underground success for longer than some teenagers have been alive. A dark comedy noir book filled with undead ghoulies and ghosties, the comic was never one to take itself too seriously; “too” being the key word .The Goon: Occasion […]

Marcus Nispel? The Asylum? No, God, No! (Oh, wait…)

Posted on March 30, 2015 by Ben

By Ben Bussey Okay, all apologies, that’s potentially the worst headline I’ve ever written (which is saying a lot considering my proclivity for very bad puns), but that was more or less my precise thought process on receiving an e-mail today with the words ‘Marcus Nispel’ and ‘The Asylum’ in it. Few things could fill […]

Abin Cooper (Michael Cooper) and Joseph Keenan (John Goodman)

By Ben Bussey I had my reservations about Kevin Smith’s Red State. There’s plenty to like about it – not least excellent central performances from Michael Parks and John Goodman and a surprisingly grounded, realistic tone – but there’s also plenty to dislike, and given that it came at a time when the once-revered writer-director […]

garuda power 35mm

By Nia Edwards-Behi Garuda Power is a modest but passionate and highly entertaining documentary, charting the quiet rise and disastrous fall of Indonesian action cinema. Having premiered late last year at South Korea’s Busan International Film Festival, the film’s been doing the rounds at East Asian film festivals, and very recently in Europe. I really […]

The Samurai

By Ben Bussey Title notwithstanding, it’s safe to say this ain’t Kurosawa. German filmmaker Till Kleinert’s The Samurai (AKA Der Samurai, obviously) screened at FrightFest 2014, where Steph hailed it as “completely bonkers… Part new queer cinema, part fairytale, this was one of the most visually striking and unforgettable films of the festival.” Now, UK viewers […]

Anchor Bay hocking up I Spit On Your Grave: Vengeance Is Mine

Posted on March 23, 2015 by Ben

By Ben Bussey Because it seems viewers worldwide just can’t get enough of seeing rape avenged, the I Spit On Your Grave remake cycle continues down its thorny path. We’ve known for almost a year that a second sequel was coming to Steven R Monroe’s 2010 redo of Meir Zarchi’s much-loved/hated 1978 original, following on […]
