‘Combat Shock’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Stars: Rick Giovinazzo, Veronica Stork, Mitch Maglio, Arthur Saunders | Written and Directed by Buddy Giovinazzo Films are like plays and books; they elicit an emotional response from us, and we hope for happiness to be one of them, especially at the end.  Then of course there are the chosen few that are just so […]

‘Tourist Trap’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Stars: Chuck Connors, Jocelyn Jones, Jon Van Ness, Robin Sherwood, Tanya Roberts, Dawn Jeffory | Written by David Schmoeller, J. Larry Carroll | Directed by David Schmoeller The slasher film does not have that much of a history of being scary.

‘Castle Freak’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Stars: Jefffrey Combs, Barbara Crampton, Jonathan Fuller, Jessica Dollarhide | Written and Directed by Stuart Gordon I could argue that there is something subtly brilliant about Castle Freak, yes it’s got its faults and its level of sexual violence will put some off, but in other ways it’s the perfect horror film.  It knows its limits […]

‘Knights Templar’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

Stars: Paul Sampson, David Carradine, Udo Kier, Norman Reedus, Billy Drago, Max Perlich | Written and Directed by Paul Sampson Knights Templar (also known as Night of the Templar) is a strange film; in fact it should not work. It’s a simple slasher wrapped around the legend of the Knights Templar, the plot is simple, the kills themselves are not […]

by Phil Wheat

‘Humanity’s End’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Stars: Jay Laisne, Rochelle Vallese, Cynthia Ickes, William David Tulin, Kari Nissena | Written by Neil Johnson, Michael Jonathan Smith | Directed by Neil Johnson Humanity’s End is a film that just confuses me, it’s got a plot that is pretty forgetful and bad special effects and if it relied on them then it would be […]

Christiansen In a trend started off by the likes of Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, European thrillers seem to be quite popular right now, and of course very remarkable for the lazy people who don’t want to read subtitles. ID:A is […]

‘Hirokin: The Last Samurai’ Review

by Phil Wheat

Stars: Wes Bentley, Jessica Szohr, Angus Macfayden, Julian Sands, Laura Ramsey | Written and Directed by Alejo Mo-Sun If there’s one reason I love B-movies. Sometimes the films are absolutely terrible and in other cases, like with Hirokin: The Last Samurai, they are fantastic hidden gems that deserve to be brought to everyone’s attention. Set […]

‘Thor: Hammer of the Gods’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Stars: Zachery Ty Bryan, Mac Brandt, Daz Crawford, Alexis Peters | Written by Steve Bevilacqua, Rafael Jordan | Directed by Todor Chapkanov Vikings always seem to interest film makers, we’ve had the classic Kirk Douglas movie, we’ve even had the comic Erik the Viking, and we’ve had the 3D “spectacle” that was Beowulf. Now that we […]

by Paul Metcalf

Stars: Steven Berkoff, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Julie Cox, Patrick Godfrey, Eddie Marsan | Written by Steve Attridge, Susanne Freund | Directed by Simon Aeby When writing a story about history it seems that the easy thing to do is look at religion.

Stars: James Frain, Clemency Burton-Hill, Tom Basden, Alyy Khan, Samuel West | Written by Andy Briggs | Directed by Lorenzo Sena When a film starts and you see “Syfy” it’s often that moment that you start to sigh.

‘Return of the Man from U.N.C.L.E’ DVD Review

Shows like the Man from U.N.C.L.E that don’t have a release yet on DVD in the UK are sought after by people who remember the show and want to relive them on a format that is now seen as the mainstream choice. Return of the Man From U.N.C.L.E. could be […]

by Paul Metcalf

Stars: Michael Sharpe, Patrick G. Keenan, Kevin L.

‘Misfits: Season 3′ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

After series two of Misfits ended it had a lot to prove, not only to itself in a way but to the audience. With the loss of Robert Sheehan as Nathan it was losing one of its best characters, to some he was most definitely the best and ending series two the way it did with almost […]
