We’re only at the start of Season 2 of Syfy’s DEFIANCE, returning Thursday June 19, but Jaime Murray’s character Stahma Tarr has already established herself as one of the more formidable antagonists of either gender in science fiction. In DEFIANCE, it’s thirty-five years after seven alien races, collectively known as the Votan, crash-landed on Earth. One of these species is the Castithan, a caste-and-status-conscious group. Stahma is a highborn Castithan who married Datak Tarr, played by Tony Curran, who has risen to prominence in the town of Defiance, formerly St. Louis,MO. Stahma plays the respectful wife, but she shamelessly manipulates …Read On »

Blu-ray review: SLEEPAWAY CAMP Collector’s Edition

SLEEPAWAY CAMP Collector's Edition Blu-ray | ©2014 Shout! Factory

Stars: Mike Killin, Katherine Kamhi, Paul DeAngelo, Nathan Tierston, Felissa Rose, Christopher Collet, Karen Fields Writer-Director: Robert Hiltzik Suggested Retail Price: $29.93 Distributor: Shout! Factory Great horror twists are hard to come by – especially back in the 1980s when slasher movies were all the rage and just about every trick imaginable was used up by the time FRIDAY THE 13th came along in 1980. However, 1983’s SLEEPAWAY CAMP is notable for providing one of the most disturbing and unexpected twist endings in the history of the slasher genre (don’t worry, I won’t reveal it here, but chances are you …Read On »

Aden Young in RECTIFY - Season 2 | ©2014 Sundance TV/Tina Rowden

Sundance TV’s drama RECTIFY begins its second season Thursday, June 19. Season 1, which debuted last year, followed the first six days after Daniel Holden (Aden Young), who has spent literally half of his life on death row after being convicted of murdering his girlfriend at age nineteen, is released from prison on a technicality. Some of Daniel’s family is thrilled; most of the townsfolk are not, believing him to be guilty. The show starts slowly but builds to real power, with a shattering Season 1 climax, and we still don’t know whether or not Daniel committed the original crime. …Read On »

CD Review: WHO IS KILLING THE GREAT CHEFS OF EUROPE? soundtrack (limited edition)

WHO IS KILLING THE GREAT CHEFS OF EUROPE? soundtrack | ©2014 Varese Sarabande Records

All the dining metaphors in the world can’t do justice to Henry Mancini’s delicious mystery-comedy score for Ted Kotcheff’s equally delectable 1978 film that took cinematic food porn to new, mouth-watering heights. A composer who knew how to blend suspense, romance and humor with an escapist touch, Mancini starts the ovens rolling with a rollicking, Baroque theme that captures the pomp of haute culture. Eschewing “Pink Panther”-esque jazz in favor of a classical, continental approach, Mancini ooh’s-and-aah’s over the highly edible creations with perky brass and lush strings, while providing an unexpected melancholy bite in his love theme for Jacqueline …Read On »

FINAL EXAM Blu-ray | ©2014 Shout! Factory

Stars: Cecile Bagdadi, Joel S. Rice, Ralph Brown, DeAnna Robbins, Sherry Willis- Burch Writer-Director: Jimmy Huston Suggested Retail Price: $24.97 Distributor: Shout! Factory Supply and demand for slasher flicks fueled the early 1980s as every low budget production company wanted to get into the horror movie genre. They were cheap to make, didn’t need stars and audiences ate them up. You also didn’t have to be a studio to make bank on these films. FINAL EXAM is the product of the HALLOWEEN and FRIDAY THE 13th school of slasher horror films. Pick a holiday or event, have the movie set …Read On »

UNDER THE DOME (based on the novel by Stephen King) was such a big hit last summer that CBS decided to make it a returning summer series. Who was not rooting for everyone in the town of Chester’s Mill and booing the character portrayed by Dean Morris, James ‘Big Jim’ Rennie? We got a chance to catch up with Dean at the CBS Summer Press Day cocktail party at The London Hotel to talk about his character and see if I could pry any secrets about the new season which debuts Monday, June 30 on CBS and is written by …Read On »

CD Review: THE RESCUE soundtrack

THE RESCUE soundtrack | ©2014 Intrada Records

Intrada follows up their release of Bruce Broughton’s classic score to YOUNG SHERLOCK HOLMES with music for a just slightly more jingoistic youth adventure that’s sure to go down as one of Kim Il Jong’s least favorite entertainments. But for Broughton fans, 1988s Touchstone movie THE RESCUE  is a flag-waving, anti North Korean blast of nutty musical fun from the composer, if only to hear Broughton unfurl symphonic action combos of all-American funk and evil Asian percussion. But then, blasting commies was the rage in a decade that saw Basil Poledouris take down the Russians on U.S. soil for RED …Read On »

CD Review: THE MACHINE soundtrack

THE MACHINE soundtrack | ©2014 Movie Score Media

Among the wave of big-budget sci-fi scores using the latest in music high-tech to capture a lo-fi mid-80s electric sound, THE MACHINE resurrects the ghost in the synth to notable effect. Making his feature debut after numerous shorts (one tellingly titled THE BRITISH UFO FILES), Tom Raybould nails a hybrid approach between the coldly determined rhythms of John Carpenter, the more ominous sonic masses of Vangelis and the organic tonalities of a gentle, and just as effective piano and guitar. Put these together, and you’ve got an impressive recipe for creating musical artificial intelligence with a heart. Such is the …Read On »
