    “THE STUFF” (Arrow Video Blu-ray Review)

    Like all movies by the great Larry Cohen, the logline for The Stuff sounds hopelessly stupid, while the film itself is surprisingly intelligent. It is of course, a film about sentient alien goo that becomes America’s most popular snack food. Pitched somewhere between THE BLOB and a satirical McDonalds advert, there’s really nothing else like the movie that works far better than it has any right to. Even though he’s long been a cult figure in the genre community, writer/director Larry Cohen is one of those filmmakers who has never quite attained the respect he deserves. His finest movies like THE STUFF are wholly unique, surprisingly intelligent, cleverly written, well-acted, messy, campy, and endlessly entertaining. Those are the qualities that tend to breed cult film and over the years THE STUFF has steadily built a fanbase of loveable lunatics who share Cohen’s uniquely cracked worldview.

    “LOCKER 13″ (Movie Review)

    Anthology films often have a higher potential as entertainment, as a bad anthology may still be creatively wealthy or have solid segments to counteract other weak entries. Alternately, a good anthology contains enough surprises, finesse and variety to keep the audience engaged and thrilled from start to finish. Best of all, the low-budget of each segment poses a challenge to the filmmakers to operate in specific confines and often offers cinematic voices at their most raw.

    Q&A: David Koechner, on “CHEAP THRILLS”

    In a film bursting with stellar performance, it’s an achievement to stand out. The deservedly acclaimed CHEAP THRILLS of course boasts an amazing lead turn from Pat Healy, but just behind him is something sinister from ANCHORMAN’s David Koechner. By subverting his cinematically oafish persona, Koechner turns Colin into a confrontational, suggestive villain. What if the physically hilarious personality, one that’s regarded as kind of a douche, was cleverer than you might think? What if he wielded real power over you, your family, your future?
