Blast Of Cannon: Part 2

Lifeforce (1985) Horror director Tobe Hooper made three flicks with Cannon in rapid succession, but the relationship only further sullied his artistic reputation. Together they coughed up the derided remake Invaders from Mars, a comedic sequel to his blistering Texas Chainsaw, and the box office bomb Lifeforce. Still, at least this sci-fi flick has reached […]

Synopsis

A New York gent practices an interesting cure for dandruff

Director

William Lustig

Cast

Joe Spinell
Caroline Munroe
Gail Lawrence

Joe Spinell was a hemophiliac who bled to death in 1989 in his early fifties. Throughout his 17-year film career, he overwhelmingly played bit parts, but had an extraordinary knack for picking the right projects. We’re talking the first two Godfather and Rocky movies, as well as Taxi Driver, Sorcerer, and Cruising. Pretty good, huh? […]

Imaginative Bursts of Sadism

Do you ever do that thing, perhaps while life hasn’t been treating you too brilliantly, when you start reading up on sicko Nazi and serial killer shit? You don’t mean to (perhaps you’ve got a spare half-hour between charity commitments) but somehow you’re disappearing into the bowels of the internet consuming blood-drenched pages about medieval […]

Director

David Schmoeller

Cast

Klaus Kinski
Talia Balsam
Barbara Whinnery
Kenneth Robert Shippy

Sometimes you want a movie to educate, move or inspire you. And sometimes you just wanna watch that pint-sized Teutonic nutter Klaus Kinski collect eyeballs. Now I’m not one to condemn actors for their off-screen behavior or ill-judged Tweets. I don’t really care what they get up to or what their political affiliations are. I […]

5 Most Remarkable Gambling Movie Characters

Many movies have been made about gambling, and no film can capture an audience’s attention if it lacks compelling characters. As such, it should be no surprise that stories told on the silver screen which involve gambling as a core plot point also frequently feature some memorable personalities. Let’s go over the most game-changing and […]

What to Look For in a Gaming Review

Gaming reviews are super useful for a whole host of reasons, but not all reviews are created equal. When you’re looking for a review before splashing out on a newly released video game, you want to be sure that the review was written by an independent party, rather than the developer of the game trying […]

It is just a river in Egypt. Probably. We often hear people complain about the lack of creativity or originality in Hollywood. Almost exclusively, that complaint is directed at big budget blockbusters and franchises. We know that complaint is completely insincere when we hear nary a peep from those same people about a movie like […]

Sinead O’Connor called her fantastic second album I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got, although she could’ve just said I Want What I’ve Got. But what if you no longer want what you’ve got? What happens if all your responsibilities, connections and habits are nothing but burdens? Given the chance, would you cast them […]
