Hello Boys and Girls.
Most of you are getting mighty sick of seeing trailers because they are all the same. They all feature the same tropes and reveal the entire plot with spoilers included too. Well the art of great trailer making is not lost on these two great films I present to you. Continue reading

One of the most weirdest,funny, unsettling, disturbing and most fascinating movies of 2010. “Dogtooth” takes issues of parenting,government,censorship,sexuality,individuality and basic human interaction and skewers them in this brilliant movie that was also nominated for Best Foreign Language at the 2011 Oscars. What makes this film unique is despite how it odd it can get,the movie never looks dirty. Most of the action takes place during the day and the setting is a very clean and pristine place.
I’m sort of cheating with this first post because the ones I’m reviewing here are now available on Blu-Ray from Arrow Home Video. Luckily, most of the titles that were only on VHS are ones you can find on their site. The two I am reviewing come courtesy of Cinema Sentries. After you read my reviews, be sure to check out all of the other great articles the site has. Each month I want to focus on two movies that have not yet made it’s way to Blu-Ray. So without further to do, let’s get to the reviews Continue reading
The non stop dispute between vampires and werewolves rages on in this latest feature from Emma Dark. I personally don’t understand why I would be rooting for one side over another. Especially, since I most likely will be on either’s dinner menu. If I had to choose, I would rather be food by a vampire because most of those ladies are pretty sexy. They might make a meal out of me but they would(I hope) at least make a night out of it. This would include seducing me and making me dinner before I became theirs. I may be going into this a bit much, I’m just saying if I had to choose a side. It would be with vampires. Continue reading
Hello Boys and Girls.
I know it’s been a while since I last posted any reviews for this site but with work and covering things for Cinema Sentries I haven’t had much time to do anything else. There is a new video where I give my thoughts on some recent movies appearing in theaters or Netflix. Continue reading

Hello everyone. I have been gone a while and I feel bad that I’m going to be gone for just a bit longer. Currently I am away covering the 2016 Minneapolis/St. Paul International Film Festival for Cinema Sentries and won’t be back til the the end of April before I do any more of my own reviews. I hope to give you a recap of all the films I have seen and tell you all about the cool people and events I have seen there as well. My apologize if I haven’t commented or liked a lot of your reviews lately. It’s just that with this and work, I’ve been too tired to really do much else. I plan to do a segment highlighting your reviews once this is all done. Thank you all for being patient.

When something bad happens to us. The mind has a way of keeping it hidden from the individual. I say this because it happened to me. Many years ago I was in a bad car accident and was near death. I remember nothing about the crash and only remember driving home. I can still recall going to my apartment, going up the stairs, and talking to my roommates at the time. It was only after I went to bed that I woke up in a hospital with tubes sticking out of me. It’s been over five years since the crash and to this day. I still don’t remember anything about what actually happened. Continue reading

April Fools Day (1986)
Cast: Deborah Foreman, Thomas F Wilson
Writer: Daniel Bach
Director Fred Walton
By the mid 80’s the slasher genre was a big boom at the box office. Everyone knew the basic template. Get a bunch of kids to a remote location and than one by one start killing them off. Of course in each of these slasher movies, you have to up the ante and present more gruesome and elaborate deaths than the last one. What sets “April Fools Day“ apart from the others is that even though it follows the same basic plot structure. It’s outcome isn’t quite the same as those other films about people getting sliced and diced.
Hello everyone I am back with all brand new reviews for you to watch and enjoy. Sorry for the lateness in posting these, but editing is kind of a pain and I still have not mastered this technique. Again thanks for watching. Continue reading
