Movie/VoD Review: AVENGED

AVENGED | © 2015 Uncork'd Entertainment

Cast: Amanda Adrienne, Tom Ardavany, Ronnie Gene Blevins, Brionne Davis, Ed Fletcher, Jason Gurvitz Writer: Michael S. Ojeda Director: Michael S. Ojeda Distributor: Uncork’d Entertainment Rating: Not Rated AVENGED is like a supernatural I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE, if that film has a deaf woman that actually dies and begins to rot on her way to killing the men that did her wrong. Oh and if they added a contrived romance plotline that never really takes off during the course of the movie. Zoe (Amanda Adrienne), a deaf girl with a boyfriend that lives far away, decides to go visit […]Read On »

BATTLE OF THE DAMNED turns out to be one of the good ones – no, it’s not up there with the remake of DAWN OF […]Read On »

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, Rob Corddry, Dave Franco, Analeigh Tipton, Cory Hardrict, John Malkovich Writer: Jonathan Levine, based on the novel by Isaac Marion Director: Jonathan Levine Distributor: Summit Entertainment Release Date: February 1, 2013 WARM BODIES takes some of the conventions of the vampire romance genre and applies them to the zombie genre with a gentle sense of humor and a metaphor that sort of works but could have used a little more oomph. It’s been about eight years since a plague swept through the world, turning most people into flesh-eating zombies and forcing the survivors […]Read On »

Stars (voices): Kodi Smit-McPhee, Tucker Albrizzi, Anna Kendrick, Casey Affleck, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Leslie Mann, Jeff Garlin, Elaine Stritch, Bernard Hill, Jodelle Ferland, Tempestt Bledsoe, Alex Borstein, John Goodman Writer: Chris Butler Directors: Sam Fell & Chris Butler Distributor: Focus Features Release Date: August 17, 2012 PARANORMAN is the latest 3-D stop-motion animation release from a lot of the folks who brought you the film version of CORALINE (writer Neil Gaiman isn’t involved here, but a lot of the sensibility is the same). The movie is full of surprises, not the least of which is what those surprises actually are. Written […]Read On »

Blu-Ray Review: ZOMBIE – 2-DISC ULTIMATE EDITION

ZOMBIE - ULTIMATE EDITION | © 2011 Blue Underground

Rating: Unrated Stars: Tisa Farrow, Ian McCulloch, Richard Johnson, Al Oliver, Auretta Gay, Olga Karalatos Writer: Elisa Briganti Director: Lucio Fulci Suggested Retail Price: $39.98 For being such a big horror fan, I have to admit I came a little late to the party in my appreciation of Italian horror master director Lucio Fulci. I knew of his movies, seen pieces of them, but never really sat down to fully embrace the filmmaker’s offbeat sensibilities and knack for unrelentingly disturbing gore. When it came to Fulci’s 1980 ZOMBIE, it was one of those films I completely overlooked it. In fact, […]Read On »

CD Review: ZOMBI 2 / A CAT IN THE BRAIN soundtrack

Where rock fans stateside were grooving the progressive rock of groups like Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Italian horror auteurs were using the guitar and synth vibes for far bloodier ends. And if Dario Argento was linked at the hip to the rhythmic murder operas of Goblin in DEEP RED, SUSPIRIA and DAWN OF THE DEAD, than the infinitely gorier Lucio Fulci was joined in the intestine to the creepily mod sound of Fabio Frizzi for such infamously stylish splatterfests like THE BEYOND, CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD and MANHATTAN BABY. Now Beat Records has paired Frizzi’s scores from two movies […]Read On »

Movie Review: STAKE LAND

STAKE LAND movie poster | ©2011 IFC

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Nick Damici, Connor Paolo, Danielle Harris, Sean Nelson, Michael Cerveris Writers: Nick Damici and Jim Mickle Director: Jim Mickle Distributor: IFC Films Release Date: April 22, 2011 STAKE LAND works on some basic levels – one can reasonably go into this post-apocalyptic horror movie expecting action and blood and be rewarded with plenty of both. An added bonus is some really gorgeous cinematography by Ryan Samul, which makes us feel like we really are somewhere bleak and abandoned, yet weirdly beautiful. In STAKE LAND, adolescent Martin (Connor Paolo) sees his family slaughtered by vampires, but he […]Read On »
