The Final Rites aka Rites of Passage (2012) Monkey Shines

May 14, 2013

Looking at the cast list, which was helpfully posted across the top of the video case, I decided to give this one a go. Sure the list says, with Christian Slater and Stephen Dorff which generally means that neither of them, as a rule, will get much screen time. But, au contraire! Christian Slater, while not on screen… Read More ›

Once Bitten, Twice Shy: Coming Back

Natasha Harmer is making an independent short film, I think we all know that by now; especially if you’ve been reading my blog. The film is called Once Bitten, Twice Shy and I have the lead role. This event has excited me beyond all measure. The profession I had turned my back on not once,… Read More ›


Devils of War (2013): Get Ze Cliche

Written and directed by Eli Dorsey, Devils of War is his first feature film. One can only hope that he has learned his lesson with this film and either changes his career choice or makes a better feature film next time. Starring Sunt Coordinator/stuntman Jerry L Buxbaum as the “legendary” leader of a four man… Read More ›


The Wrong House aka House Hunting (2013): Disjointed Thriller

Written and directed by Eric Hurt, House Hunting (The Wrong House in the UK) is Hurt’s first feature length film. On IMDb the film has received a score of 4.5 which, I think, is a bit harsh. Starring Marc Singer (who I haven’t seen since his V mini-series days in the 1980’s) and Art Lafleur,… Read More ›


Murder Party (2007): Bargain Basement Fun

I’ve been passing over this film choice on Netflix for months. I don’t know why, but something about the film’s poster put me off. To be brutally honest, the poster that starts this blog post actually looks better than the one on Netflix and it’s the same one! Last night I finally bit the bullet… Read More ›


The Taking (2013) BAPartists Update

Since I posted my review of BAPartists first feature length film The Taking and interviewed the extremely talented duo of Lydelle Jackson and Cezil Reed I’ve gotten an update from Lydelle about how their Sidney World Premiere of the movie went. The Taking premiered on the 13th of April at the A Night of Horror International Film Festival… Read More ›

The Lords of Salem (2012): Zombie Christmas Gift?

I first found out about the genius that is Rob Zombie when I stumbled across the film House of a 1000 Corpses. It was a case of love at first sight. Like most people who suddenly discover a new ‘loved one’ I read everything I could about the man and his beginnings. It then became my… Read More ›

God Bless America (2011): Black Comedy Gold-thwait

Every once in a while you find a film that makes you ask the question, “Where have you been all my life?” And mean it. Written and directed by Bobcat Goldthwait (World’s Greatest Dad) God Bless America is a hard hitting black comedic look at all the things that make America unpleasant. It is the… Read More ›

The Crow (1994): Brandon Lee’s Swan Song

The Crow originally started life as a 1989 graphic novel by James O’Barr. The novel was darkly Gothic and had an almost ‘punk rock’ edge to it’s already  heavy metal dressing. That O’Barr is a genius goes without saying and it was only a matter of time before someone realized that his novel needed to be brought… Read More ›
