  • “WYRMWOOD: ROAD OF THE DEAD” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    While the marketing materials may try to sell Kiah Roache-Turner’s WYRMWOOD: ROAD OF THE DEAD as a cross between MAD MAX and DAWN OF THE DEAD, this fantastic independent zombie flick is much closer to something like THE SIGNAL (2007) or DARKMAN. Though WYRMWOOD offerings more than enough blood, violence and turbo-charged insanity to come off as ROAD WARRIOR-esque, the film is also surprisingly emotional while exploring different, more sci-fi oriented avenues than one might expect. But in doing this, WYRMWOOD’s weird streak allows it to stand among the recently saturated zombie film market to be something truly memorable and fun, reminding the audience how far one can stretch a dollar with the right amount of imagination and gore FX.

  • Stream to Scream: “MANIAC COP”

    ,,

    At a time where the public relations between law enforcement and the general public are potentially at an all time low, no ‘80s horror film is more relevant today than the 1988 slasher MANIAC COP. Directed by exploitation master William Lustig (MANIAC) and scripted by Larry Cohen (THE STUFF), the film tells the tale of a tall, shadow-faced serial killer stalking the streets of New York City in a patrolman’s uniform, white gloves and all.

  • “NORTHMEN – A VIKING SAGA” (Film Review)

    ,,

    When life hands you lemons… start throwing axes at random nameless, faceless baddies.

    Such is the maxim the marooned berserkers of NORTHMEN—A VIKING SAGA seek to honor and invoke fewer than five minutes into this viscera-festooned, manic-in-a-good-way, unabashedly over the top ninth century adventure flick: Think the popular History Channel docudrama series imbued with a little John McTiernan-esque swagger and sheen—not to mention a considerably more laissez-faire approach towards graphic violence—and your expectations will be roughly in the right longship.

  • “DER TODESKING” (Blu-ray/DVD Review)

    ,,

    With a human skull placed right next to him, director Jörg Buttgereit tells us we’re about to see “a movie against suicide” in his introduction to the new Blu-ray and DVD of DER TODESKING—a film about seven characters committing suicide on each day of the week. And like Buttgereit’s other films that we’ve been covering as they fortuitously ooze onto disc via Cult Epics, DER TODESKING rubs your nose in the beauty and nausea of death and decay while greatly respecting you for bearing witness.

  • “KNOCK KNOCK” (Film Review)

    ,,

    While Eli Roth may be known for his particular and popular brand of horror, ranging from his directorial work on HOSTEL to his acting in AFTERSHOCK to his producing work on the big screen and small, one might forget that Roth cut his teeth in one of horror’s most longstanding institutions: Troma. And while Roth’s horror geek cred has never come into question, what with his penchant for provocative, Eurohorror-influenced content, Roth’s sensibilities have long existed within the realm of exploitation. But with KNOCK KNOCK, Roth’s most recent directorial effort, horror audiences will see a new side to Roth as a filmmaker as those sensibilities collide into something completely different: a midnight movie made for the mainstream horror fan.
