THE_ASYLUM_DVD_2D

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.

Deus Ex Machina? Animation shows how Kevin Smith’s Red State was meant to end

Posted on 03/27/15 by Ben
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 […]

German freak-out The Samurai coming to DVD

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 […]

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 […]

discopath

By Ben Bussey One of those movies I’ve heard good things about but not yet had the pleasure of seeing, Discopath was a favourite of both Tristan and Nia back in 2013 following its screening at Abertoir. Well, better late than never – director Renaud Gauthier’s disco-flavoured slasher is at long last set to hit […]

The_Last_Survivors_DVD

By Ben Bussey The producers of You’re Next and The Guest bring us another new movie which would appear steeped in 80s influence, though of perhaps a somewhat different vibe. The Last Survivors, formerly entitled The Well, is the directorial debut of Tom Hammock (production designer on the aforementioned Adam Wingard movies amongst others). It’s […]

Vampyros Lesbos Soledad Miranda Severin

By Ben Bussey As much as we’ve always been a little uneasy promoting crowdfunding campaigns at BAH, so many keep crossing our paths of late that really warrant attention – and if there’s one thing that definitely strikes us as worthy of attention, it’s a definitive book on the legendary Spanish screen star and early […]
