CHASTITY_BITES_2D_DVD

By Ben Bussey For ages now, our own Nia Edwards-Behi has been singing the praises of comedy horror Chastity Bites.

Yakuza Apocalypse

By Ben Bussey I wonder from time to time whether there might be a whole cabal of trailer-editors in Japan setting out to make the most madcap, borderline incoherent promos imaginable, giving the viewer as little indication as possible as to what the film is actually about but leaving them in no doubt that it’s […]

Love and Peace

By Ben Bussey Fresh from giving the world its first gangster rap musical (see Tristan’s review of Tokyo Tribe, which is getting a limited UK cinema release next month), Sion Sono seems eager to see what new heights of weirdness he can ascend to – and something tells me Love and Peace is simply another […]

zombieworld

Offbeat psuedo-documentary Shadow Zombie headed to DVD

Posted on 04/21/15 by Ben
ShadowZombie-Cover

By Ben Bussey A title like Shadow Zombie immediately makes one expect something generic, but from the look of things this new Louisiana-shot film from director Jorge Torres-Torres is anything but a bog standard indie horror.

Kung Fury - True Survivor

By Ben Bussey The current popular trend for all things 80s – movies, music, clothes, politics – shows no sign of abating, and if you’ve still got the taste for it this particular double whammy will prove more refreshing than a Tab Clear.

Lights Camera Blood

By Ben Bussey Given how increasingly 70s/80s oriented so many of the recent neo-grindhouse movies have been, it’s kind of nice to see a new movie that looks to hark back to one of the real pioneers of the bizarre subgenre: the legendary Herschell Gordon Lewis.
