Anchor Bay Bringing Pulp-Noir To The Masses When BAD TURN WORSE Hits DVD/Bluray This January!

BAD TURN WORSE

If there’s a subgenre of films that I adore as much as horror, it’s the Crime/Mystery one. I’m a sucker for pulpy, Noir-toned crime films in which things get worse and worse as the movie goes on, and films like The Coen Bros.’ BLOOD SIMPLE are some of my all time favorites. I eat and breathe […]

BEYOND FRIGHT: Every Time I Die’s “Underwater Bimbos From Outer Space” & “Revival Mode” Videos

ETID

By far one of my favorite bands of all time, Buffalo, NY’s Every Time I Die has always been a juggernaut of craziness. A band that can be heavy as possible, but can throw out some soulful melodies at the drop of a dime, the band has always had a knack for not only creating […]

Review: DRIVE HARD

DRIVE HARD

It’s pretty apparent when a film takes itself a bit too seriously. On the flipside to that, it’s also apparent when you know that the actors involved in a film are well aware of it being a tad bit silly, and in turn, give performances that are not only in on the joke, but are […]

Review: GROW UP, TONY PHILLIPS

Back in 2009, I caught a screening of Emily Hagins’ zombie film PATHOGEN at a women in film festival, followed by ZOMBIE GIRL: THE MOVIE, a documentary centered around her making this film.  At the time of PATHOGEN‘s production, Hagins was merely twelve years old.  It was an impressive film, regardless of her age, and […]
