Widow

When watching and reviewing indie genre films, I've often found myself inclined to be pretty charitable. I know how hard it is to get films written and made, and to an extent, I take this into consideration. But that tolerance can only be taken so far - as a film fan, I want to get something out of the films I watch irrespective of their budgets or... Click to read more "Widow"

The Stuff (1985)

It's smooth and creamy. It's low calorie and delicious. And it kills.

The Stuff - It's smooth and creamy. It's low calorie and delicious. And it kills.

It is a widely accepted opinion that one should not eat yellow snow... in fact it is probably worth taking this advice one step further than Frank Zappa suggested and ensuring that your children avoid anyone crazy enough to eat snow in the first place. Unfortunately in 1985 few people heeded this guidance and this enabled Larry Cohen to enter the B... Click to read more "The Stuff"

X-Cross - Scissor me Timbers

Kenta Fukasaku's X-Cross, also known as XX (ekusu kurosu): makyô densetsu, has real difficulty deciding whether it is a traditional Japanese folklore based horror or a crazy tongue-in-cheek Japanese gore flick... and manages to combine the two genres superbly with a compelling story expertly implemented to boot. The movie is split into four chapter... Click to read more "X-Cross (Ekusu kurosu: makyô densetsu)"

Pyrokinesis AKA Crossfire (Kurosufaia) - Fire is Another Emotion

From the offset it is quite apparent that the heroine in Shusuke Kaneko's Pyrokinesis AKA Crossfire (Kurosufaia) is going to go out with a bang, and not the kind of bang that a female in a snuff flick goes out with but the kind of bang that is likely to appear in a generic action movie either just before or just after the obligatory fist-fight betw...

Pig - Oink!

It's straight in with a gut-punch of visceral nastiness with Pig, the latest film from British director Adam Mason (Broken, The Devil's Chair, Blood River). A woman, terrified and covered in blood, flees along a deserted highway - where's she's intercepted by a man we'll come to know only as "Daddy" (Andrew Howard). When she hears his car engine, s...
