Stars: Craig Sheffer, Anne Bobby, David Cronenberg, Charles Haid Writer-Director: Clive Barker based on his novel CABAL Suggested Retail Price: $29.93 Distributor: Shout! Factory There are many instances where a director’s work is completely butchered by a studio because they don’t quite understand or care about the intent – they just want to make a quick buck and screw the art. Sergio Leone had his 1984 epic ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA sliced to a nub during its original release, only to be restored to its full epic glory decades later.

Rating: R Stars: Iain De Caestecker, Alice Englert, Allen Leech Writer: Jeremy Lovering Director: Jeremy Lovering Distributor: Anchor Bay Films Blu-Ray/DVD/VOD Release Date: March 11, 2014 It’s hard to make any kind of a gripping movie with limited sets and very few cast members, but writer/director Jeremy Lovering succeeds with his debut feature, IN FEAR. Genre fans can relate elements of the scenario to a lot of other suspense/horror films, but IN FEAR works as an original, as well as an unexpectedly good character piece.

Cast: Danielle Lozeau, Andrea Monier, Anthony Fanelli, Robin Steffen, Bill Oberst Jr. Writer: Evan Tramel Director: Evan Tramel Distributor: Image Entertainment The first two-thirds of BLACK WATER VAMPIRE are a near re-creation of THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT, except with a vampire, snow and better camera equipment.

Of course, none of these doomed documentaries ever ends well. As the Black Water killings go, …Read On »

Rating: Unrated Stars: Paul Bettany, Mark Strong, Stephen Graham, Brian Cox Writer: Bill Gallagher Director: Nick Murphy Distributor: RLJ Entertainment Release Date: home video/digital download, September 10, 2013 A British crime drama – hell, any kind of production whatever – starring Paul Bettany, Mark Strong, Brian Cox and Stephen Graham is going to be worth seeing. As it happens, BLOOD has merits above and beyond its cast, with director Nick Murphy and writer Bill Gallagher maintaining a near-claustrophobic tension as Bettany’s English police detective Joe Fairburn grapples with guilt, fear and rage.
