Frankenstein Created Bikers

By Ben Bussey It was all the way back in June 2012 that we first reported on Frankenstein Created Bikers, director James Bickert’s follow-up to his censor-bothering neo-grindhouse breakthrough Dear God No! At that time, just about all we had was the title, and the glorious poster from that modern master of vintage-style poster art, Tom […]

DVD Review: Clown (2014)

clown

By Keri O’Shea Hating clowns is pretty much a religious observance in Western culture. No one really needs to explain, ‘I hate clowns’, and no one ever seems to be indifferent to them, let alone like the things, save for women of a certain age who are into naff figurines; it’s weird, though, that so […]

By Ben Bussey If you’re in the mood for something cheap and nasty, it looks like this one might prove a good fit for both those adjectives. The debut film of Chuck Conry (writer behind horror site Zombies Don’t Run), Morbid is pitched as a ‘throwback to 80s slashers,‘ and from the brief teaser trailer […]

Holy Hell poster 2015

By Ben Bussey Hard to believe it’s almost eight years since Rodriguez and Tarantino released their ambitious double-feature Grindhouse in US cinemas to a staggering lack of success. Stranger still to think that a cinematic venture that was deemed a colossal failure on release has in fact proved so influential that we’re still feeling its […]

Tokyo Tribe

By Tristan Bishop Japanese director Sion Sono has been gradually making an international name for himself since the eighties. He really started attracting attention in 2001 with the gruesome and creepy Suicide Club, riding the J-horror wave that exploded after Hideo Nakata’s Ringu (1998), and in recent years has seen enormous critical success with 2010’s […]

My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn

By Ben Bussey Nicolas Winding Refn is one of the most singular, polarising and enigmatic filmmakers who has managed to break through to the mainstream this past decade, and given how intense his work tends to be and the widespread head-scratching they tend to prompt, a peek behind his curtain might prove very interesting indeed.
