Movie & Music Network Review: Bikini Bloodbath Christmas (2009) – Watch For Free Here!

Bikini Bloodbath Christmas

Review by Ben Bussey What with the time of year, I figured that for our second monthly dip into the diverse catalogue of weird, wonderful and downright trashy cinema available at the Movie & Music Network (following on from Keri’s November review of Ilsa the Wicked Warden), I should select something relatively festive. There was […]

DVD Review: Vengeance Road (AKA American Muscle) (2014)

Vengeance Road - Metrodome DVD

Review by Ben Bussey Whilst it may be a dish best served cold, revenge has been pretty damned hot in indie filmmaking in recent years. Pretty much any neo-grindhouse movie to have come along since Rodriguez and Tarantino set that particular ball rolling has featured at least one lone survivor with a serious score to […]

Review by Matt Harries ‘Art House horror’. I don’t know about you but that term immediately causes an arterial explosion of words to issue forth from my mental recesses. ‘Bloody’, ‘visceral’, ‘warped’, ‘unconventional’, ‘non-linear’…’Lynchian’ of course. There are conventions even within the language of the unconventional. Reference points which we check off, co-ordinates we follow, […]

DVD Review: Stage Fright (2014)

Stage Fright

Review by Nia Edwards-Behi I have a soft spot for horror musicals. This may have somewhat coloured my immense enjoyment of Stage Fright, a film about which I hadn’t heard great things. This might be partially because it’s very musical-y. This isn’t a goth opera like Repo! The Genetic Opera, or a rockabilly B-movie homage […]

VOD Review: Mr Jones (2014)

Mr.-Jones

Review by Quin Imagine Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind as directed by Ken Russell. I think it’s pretty safe to say that would be a puzzling yet effectively strange film filled with startling visuals and powerful symbolism. In what I find to be the most surprising film I’ve seen this year, Mr. Jones takes […]

DVD Review: Ragnarok: The Viking Apocalypse (2013)

Review by Ben Bussey In opening, a note on title changes. Though the DVD artwork bears the title Ragnarok: The Viking Apocalypse, this film was released in its native Norway as Gåten Ragnarok (which I gather essentially translates as The Riddle of Ragnarok), and in the opening titles it is dubbed simply Ragnarok. It’s of […]

Comic Review: Wolf Moon #1

By Svetlana Fedotov Werewolves are a pretty safe bet when it comes to whipping out a scary story. Like vampires and zombies, they already come with their own set of rules, mythology, and an image ready to be penned into the “enter-scary-creature” blank space on the horror tax form. In fact, I probably wouldn’t even […]

Abertoir 2014 Review: The Forgotten (2014)

Review by Tristan Bishop If there’s one thing we Brits excel at, it’s a good ghost story. From MR James (arguably the master of the form) to the 1945 Ealing studios spooky portmanteau tale Dead Of Night, to the blockbusting Woman In Black, we’ve got the restless dead covered. The reasons for this are debatable, […]

Comic Review: ODY-C #1

By Svetlana Fedotov Classic works get revived all the time; smarter, sassier, and sexier with each version. Look at Sherlock Holmes, with its Robert Downey Jr.s and Benedict Cumberbatchs sexying the classic detective up, or the new Exodus movie, which frankly just seems unnecessary. A tried and true story is always solid for adaption and […]

DVD Review: Gun Woman (2013)

Gun Woman - Monster Pictures DVD

Review by Ben Bussey Asami: a relatively common name in Japan so I understand, and yet to fans of contemporary Japanese exploitation cinema it can only mean one person. While she generally appears in supporting roles, the porno/pinku veteran has pretty much become the Linnea Quigley of J-sploitation: the mere sight of her face (not […]
