Rating: R Stars: John Gallagher, Tony Goldwyn, Adria Arjona, John C. McGinley, Michael Rooker, Melonie Diaz, James Earl Writer: James Gunn Director: Greg McLean Distributor: Orion Release Date: March 17, 2017 THE BELKO EXPERIMENT has a title that’s reminiscent of THE STANFORD PRISON EXPERIMENT. This may not be a coincidence, as THE BELKO EXPERIMENT plays like THE STANFORD PRISON EXPERIMENT if the latter tried steroids, then bypassed them and went straight to hemorrhagic fever. For those unfamiliar with it, 2015’s THE STANFORD PRISON EXPERIMENT, based on Dr. Philip Zimbardo’s book THE LUCIFER EFFECT, chronicles a real-life event that was supposed […]Read On »

Tonight is the Season 2 finale of FEARnet’s horror comedy series HOLLISTON. HOLLISTON’s primary set is the interior of an apartment set at the Red Studios in Hollywood. The walls are covered in horror movie posters, including one for series creator/executive producer/star Adam Green’s original HATCHET (which he wrote, produced and directed). The refrigerator is covered in horror-type magnets, there’s a creepy painting in the bathroom and there’s a bedroom closet that’s the dwelling of a heavy metal monster called Oderus Urungus (played by Dave Brockie). Right now, there’s a scene going on in the bedroom involving Green’s character Adam, […]Read On »

ABC’s hit show CASTLE, wrapping up its third season Mondays at 10 PM and coming back for a fourth season, is named for its hero. Nathan Fillion’s Richard Castle is a hugely successful NY-based mystery novelist who lives with his mother Martha (Susan Sullivan) and teenaged daughter Alexis (Molly Quinn). He has become unofficial partner to NYPD homicide detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic), who treats Castle with a combination of affection, annoyance and attraction as he trails her, ostensibly as inspiration for his writing, but clearly more because he just enjoys her company. For anyone who doesn’t know Fillion’s pre-CASTLE […]Read On »

CD Review: SUPER original soundtrack

Tyler Bates has proven himself as a master of seditious super hero scoring with the likes of WATCHMEN and EL SUPERBEASTO, upending the sound of muscle men with batshit rock and roll and power-pondering strings. But it’s doubtful if he’ll get quite a screwed-up heroic wannabe as the righteous grill cook of SUPER, his new, enjoyable affront to good musical taste with writer-director James Gunn after scoring that filmmaker’s mass of protoplasm for SLITHER. Bates’ deliberately grungy approach is caught somewhere between making fun of the twisted sight of a tights-wearing Rainn Wilson and teaming up with him. Garage synths […]Read On »

Movie Review: SUPER

Rating: R Stars: Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page, Kevin Bacon, Liv Tyler, Nathan Fillion Writer: James Gunn Director: James Gunn Distributor: IFC Midnight Release Date: April 1, 2011 There is nothing whatsoever wrong with being part of a subgenre. For example, despite the existence of ALIEN, it’s perfectly possible to make a terrific new movie about scary extraterrestrials – which SUPER writer/director James Gunn actually did a few years back with his horror comedy SLITHER. Gunn’s new film SUPER fits into the non-super-powered superhero genre. The giant monolith in this field is obviously BATMAN, but SUPER belongs to an even smaller […]Read On »
