Big Finishing Move: ‘Doctor Who: Doom Coalition 4’

0 Submitted by on Fri, 10 November 2017, 13:59
Hola, mis amigos, and welcome to the one and only Big Finishing Move. For anyone not already aware, this handy-dandy little series was created as justification for all the money I blow on the many releases from audio drama giant, Big Finish. I joke, but there is the distinct sting of truth buried in that statement. Today we’re covering the Continue Reading...

October Watch: ‘The Burning Moon’ is Hardcore

0 Submitted by on Fri, 27 October 2017, 16:59
The Burning Moon is grotesque. I’ve spoken a bit about shot-on-video before, so if you’re unfamiliar with the brief and utterly unique subgenre, check it out. While a lot of the most commonly referenced and released are American-made, it’s not limited to a solely state-side phenomenon. Europe, specifically France (Purveyors of classics like Sexandroide) and Germany, produced its fair output Continue Reading...

October Watch: You Bet Your Ass ‘The Last House on Dead End Street’ Is For Real

0 Submitted by on Wed, 18 October 2017, 17:59
The Last House on Dead End Street is a bowl of cigarettes for breakfast. The empty color palette, snowy and abandoned setting, and dubbed audio track are like flu symptoms. At no point do any characters, killers or victims, retain motivation straying away from the exploitation of others for their own gain or entertainment. The soundtrack is obscure stock music and Continue Reading...

October Watch: If You Haven’t Seen ‘Noroi’ (2005), You’re Missing Out

0 Submitted by on Tue, 17 October 2017, 16:59
Preface: For the two years I lived with One of Us’s Adain Harr, I endlessly attempted to sit him down to watch Kôji Shiraishi’s Noroi (2005). Every time we searched for something to watch I professed the sheer terror of it’s near-two-hour runtime, but in turn my pleading formed into a running joke between everyone in the apartment. Our lease Continue Reading...

‘Killing Gunther’ Review

0 Submitted by on Mon, 16 October 2017, 18:59
Can we put a moratorium on mockumentaries for a while? This is Spinal Tap and The Rutles are classics and they helped jumpstart a genre. Although, with shows like The Office, Modern Family, and even the short run reboot of The Muppets, the style is oversaturated, to say the least. With that tiny rant out of the way allow me Continue Reading...

A man and woman are walking home at night, making their way down a deserted street. They stop in the middle of the road and are almost clipped by a motorcyclist. The woman calls the man an asshole and he proceeds to violently attack them. This is the opening scene of Firstborn: a scenario which sends the lead character spiraling Continue Reading...

‘Junk Head’ Review

1 Submitted by on Wed, 04 October 2017, 16:59
In the past few years, stop-motion animation has achieved technical marvels previously thought impossible. The scale and smoothness of films like Kubo and the Two Strings or The Boxtrolls is something that could only exist today, given the technical marvels on display. Junk Head, an independent stop-motion feature from Takahide Hori, may not offer the technical prowess of its big-budget Continue Reading...

‘The Prince of Nothingwood’ Review

1 Submitted by on Fri, 29 September 2017, 16:59
Salim Shaheen is one of Afghanistan’s, and perhaps the world’s, most prolific filmmakers. But his is a name probably not known to many outside of the Middle East. Nothingwood comes from Salim himself as he notes that America has Hollywood, India has Bollywood and, as he points to the desert around him, Afghanistan has Nothingwood. At the outset of this Continue Reading...
