Assault on Precinct 13 – Blu-Ray Re-Release Review

Not John Carpenter’s début, but the first in a series of classic horror/action/fantasy B-pictures from him, Assault on Precinct 13 became a hit in Europe, though notably not in the States, and established a solid template to which he has stuck to this day. Its reputation undimmed in spite of a lacklustre 2005 remake, Assault […]

Best of 2016: Embrace of the Serpent

Embrace of the Serpent was Colombia’s entry into the Best Foreign Language Film category at the 88th Academy Awards, proving that for director Ciro Guerra the third time is the charm. His first unsuccessful submission happened to be his very first feature, the 2004 drama Wandering Shadows, and the second in 2009 for The Wind Journeys. Guerra […]

Best of 2016: Mustang

An incandescent, acutely observed portrait of defiance and sisterhood… Mustang is one of those rare pleasures which come round from time to time – a simple story richly told. The basic narrative here is straightforward; five young sisters are imprisoned within their own home after playing with boys at the local beach and supposedly tarnishing their marriageability. Their home […]

Tales of Halloween – New Release Review

The soft, sultry voice of former John Carpenter regular Adrienne Barbeau comes over the radio, reminiscent of Lynne Thigpen in The Warriors. Then the opening credits begin, and you’re treated to a new bit of score from Mission: Impossible composer Lalo Schifrin. If you’re a B-movie buff then you already have plenty to be excited […]

Money Monster – New Release Review

Meet Lee Gates (George Clooney). You’ll have met him or his type before, no doubt. He hosts the TV investment show Money Monster, in which he excitedly gives out financial advice while sounds and graphics blare, punctuating his every pronouncement.

Satan’s Blade – Blu-Ray Review

One of the more forgotten of the rash of slasher to appear in the wake of Halloween, Satan’s Blade subverts the usual fun-in-the-sun settings of this type of picture by isolating its cast of vacationing teens on a snow-covered peak, then has them stalked by the vengeful spirit of a deranged mountain man. The Film […]
