Road House - DVD Review

When Lily Stevens arrives at the backwoods bar and bowling alley called Jefty's Road House as the latest singer, general manager Pete is less than thrilled. He thinks that Lily will only become the next in a long line of entertainers that Jefty has brought into his place hoping for some cheap thrills, while Pete is forced to deal with the poor girl's broken heart. But something is different about Lily. She's a chain-smoking, scotch-pounding woman who is here for the paycheck, and not interested in any extracurricular activities - at first anyway. »»

Linda Lovelace For President - DVD Review

When factions from just about every political movement in the country become completely disgruntled with the two currently political candidates, they hold a convention of their own to nominate a suitable third party candidate. But with groups ranging from the Lets Get Back to Viet Nam Committee, the American Nazi Party, and the Group Marriage Group, it seems that no one will ever be chosen. However, on a lark (and as you've probably already guessed from the title) they finally go with porn star Linda Lovelace of Deep Throat fame. »»

Home Sick - DVD Review

Indie film director Adam Wingard and collaborative writer E.L. Katz, who have been prolific short film creators over the past several years make a shocking feature length debut with Home Sick that owes much of its success to its unrelenting gore effects and a few noteworthy names to market amongst their mainly unknown cast. »»

Blood Brothers - DVD Review

Producer John Woo flexes his money muscle with this, the first Asian production he's been associated with since 1992 as he returns to his roots and gives Alexi Tan his feature-length directorial debut. Woo's "influence" is further felt as Tan, who also co-wrote the movie, readily admits that 1990's Bullet In The Head played a heavy role with his movie's themes of brotherhood and betrayal. »»

Freakazoid: Season One - DVD Review

With Tiny Toon Adventures and Animaniacs under his belt, Steven Spielberg set out complete his trifecta of "Presents" cartoons by executive producing Freakazoid in 1995. With initial concepts by Bruce Timm and Paul Dini, and using a hodgepodge of writers and voice actors from some of the best episodes of Animaniacs to flesh out the series, Freakazoid follows the life of Dexter Douglas and his titlular superhero alter-ego. As we learn from the Emmy Nominated theme song, Dexter Douglas is a nerd computer ace who went surfing on the internet and was zapped to cyberspace; he turned into the Freakazoid who is strong and super-quick and drives the villains crazy because he's a lunatic. And that is about all the background you'll get and need for this superhero. »»

Papaya: Love Goddess Of The Cannibals - DVD Review

Love him or hate him, director Joe D'Amato is not only the undisputed king of Italian sleaze, but he is also an absolute marvel at what he does. His cinematography takes on the scenery of the Caribbean setting with the eye of a travelogue, making each shot of distant mountains and palm tree covered beaches a beckoning call as to where your next vacation should be spent. And of course his eye for blending sensuality with pure sexuality is practically unparalleled. While keeping his film just below pure XXX entertainment, D'Amato does not shy away from what the audiences, both male and female, equally want. »»

The Ruins - Unrated DVD Review

Smith dishes out the intense and squirm inducing gore like no-one's business with the help of special effects supervisor David Fletcher, especially within the extended and deleted scenes that have made their way back into the unrated version. With the brightly lit daytime sequences, every single moment of self-inflicted cutting and every infected open wound are plainly visible and made all the more harsh by the dedication to realism that the in-camera practical effects strive for. Adding to the almost nauseating realism of the gore are the sound effects, which include hair-raising bone cracks and gut-wrenching squishing of manipulated flesh. »»

The Dead Pit - DVD Review

As part of the last wave of horror films to be released in the 1980s, director Brett Leonard's low budget zombie flick is a shambling hodgepodge of what makes these sort of creature features so great and at the same time so bad. With inspiration that can easily be traced back to Re-Animator, Leonard and co-writer Gimel Everett try to give their zombie hoards a fresh and perhaps even pseudo-scientific origin rather than the "no more room in Hell" motif. »»
