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 […]

Starry Eyes

By Matt Harries Reader advisory: Moderate spoilers ahead. For a spoiler-free appraisal of Starry Eyes, see Ben’s review from Celluloid Screams 2014. We live in an era obsessed with viral fame and hollow glory. The overwhelming desire to be seen, to be watched and admired by approving peers, is seemingly universal. Fame, or some reduction […]

The Cabining

By Quin Early in The Cabining, a group of people are critiquing screenplays. Writing partners and friends, Todd and Bruce, are there to get feedback on the horror movie they are writing. The consensus in the group is that it sucks. One woman chimes in with, “Just because you chose a forgiving genre, doesn’t make […]

hangman

By Keri O’Shea Feeling secure in one’s home is, for most people, absolutely essential – particularly, I’d imagine, if you have a family, and need to feel that you have a safe space for them, somewhere they can rely on as intrinsically secure, intrinsically theirs. This feeling of security is also a source of anxiety, […]

How I Dumped My Ex-Boyfriend's Body

By Ben Bussey We see our fair share of low-to-no budget indie movies around these parts, yet while a large percentage of them boast at least a hint of eccentric humour, comparatively few are what we’d necessarily class as outright comedies. The Fat Foot Films production How I Dumped My Ex-Boyfriend’s Body is something of […]

DVD Review: [Rec]4 – Apocalypse

rec_4_apocalipsis

By Keri O’Shea The Rec franchise – for such it has become – must figure as one of the most successful Euro-horror exports of the past decade. In many ways very much of its time, what with the original film being one of the most famous/infamous [delete as applicable] ‘found footage’ style movies in the […]

Comic Review: The Descender #1

descender

By Svetlana Fedotov I usually like to start my reviews with some vague tidbit or smart ass comment that loosely connects my review to the review subject, but screw that. Dustin Nguyen and Jeff Lemire wrote a comic! About SPACE! AND ROBOTS! That’s good enough of an introduction. Both Nguyen and Lemire are two of […]
