Movie Review: Chromeskull: Laid to Rest 2 (2011)

Directed by Robert Hall

Starring Brian Austin Green, Thomas Dekker and Mimi Michaels.

“Chromeskull” is the sequel to the 2009 surprise hit “Laid to Rest”, where we were introduced to this latest and greatest masked serial killer of the silver screen. And this movie picks up exactly where the first one left off. Chromeskull is rescued by his secret team and whisked away from the bloody crime scene, barely alive, his face completely torn off. Taken back to his secret facility hidden within an old chroming factory, he is patched up and soon on the mend, and eager to get back to his bloody work of stalking hapless victims, slashing them to pieces with his ultra-badass knives and recording it all for posterity with his shoulder-mounted video-cam.

Movie Review: Bane (2009)

Directed by James Eaves
Starring Sophia Dawnay, Lisa Devlin and Jonethan Sidgwick

Bane opens with four women being forced into a chair and drugged against their will. They soon awaken in a visqueen covered cage with no memory of how they got there or even who they are. Character-wise, they've got the bases covered, there's the whimpering basketcase, the mousy maternal glasses-wearing character, the tough-girl, and the hot but stoic blonde.

Movie Review: National Lampoon's The Legend of Awesomest Maximus (2012)

I've always been a big fan of Will Sasso (Mad TV, Best in Show, Happy Gilmore) but the lumpy comic definitely has his detractors. Most of the naysayers aren't too happy that he's playing Curly in the new The Three Stooges movie. Curly maybe somewhat sacred in comedy lore but is still don't understand the fuss because he's versitale enough... and, well, he's fat and bald. Recently I got to see Sasso star in Image Entertainment's release of Jeff Kanew's National Lampoon's The Legend of Awesomest Maximus. Kanew's a capable comedic director - he did helm the 80's comedy classic Revenge of the Nerds - and Sasso's several years of being the funny fat guy on Mad TV give me some hope.

Movie Review: Camel Spiders (2012)

The thought of a movie produced by Roger Corman about killer spiders, directed by quite possibly one of the most prolific titty flick directors in Jim Wynorski (Not of this Earth - 1988, Hard To Die) had this murderous arachnid enthusiast very excited. Not since Arachnophobia, nearly 20 years or so ago, the killer spider film has been neglected. Anchor Bay has just released the superb documentary on Corman, titled Corman's World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel so maybe the creepy crawlers can duplicate the success and give us creature feature fans what we need.

The American military are immersed in an intense exchange of artillery with some Arab soldiers in the Middle-East. What both parties don't know is that they are about to be joined by a new foe that will make their little skirmish look like teenagers fighting with Supersoakers. There to crash the party are gigantic poisonous camel spiders.

Movie Review: The Shrine (2010)

Supernatural movies can be hit or miss. We can all suspend disbelief enough to get into the idea that spirits surround us, and for many people, that isn't a huge stretch. It's interesting to think that good and evil apparitions may be here at all times. The tough part is making it scary. The Shrine tries to do that, I think, but it just sort of, I don't know. It's just sort of there.

Buy The Shrine from Amazon UK

Here's the story. An overzealous reporter decides to investigate a missing American in Poland without her bosses knowledge, and we learn why that's a very bad idea. Not only that, but she takes an intern and her photographer boyfriend with on the excursion. The intern is aware that they are working against the editor's wishes, but the boyfriend doesn't know until they get there. For the rest of the film, he provides the only voice of reason.

Movie Review: The Cuckoo Clocks Of Hell (2011)

I really thought it was quite fitting that The Cuckoo Clocks of Hell director Ron Atkins opened his film with this brilliant quotation from the great W.C Fields: "I am free of all prejudice, I hate everyone equally". These words set up perfectly what you experience for the entire running time of Atkins' film. Independent horror icon Jim Van Bebber (The Manson Family, Deadbeat at Dawn) and John Giancaspro (Schizophreniac: The Whore Mangler) star in this amazingly fucked-up fairytale that brings Giancaspro's vile Harry Russo head to head with the titular character in Roger Watkins' shocker Last House on Dead End Street, Terry Hawkins (played by Van Bebber). One of these guys is bad enough..but both??

Movie Review: The Wrong House (2010)

Directed by Shawn French

Starring Stacy Ann Strang, Brendan Potter and Sue Stevens

There are few things I like better then being pleasantly surprised while watching a movie. Before watching The Wrong House I did my customary IMDB check-in, user-rating...not good, reviews...not very nice, budget...ultra-low. Not expecting much, I popped in the DVD and ended up watching a pretty slick little indie horror movie.

Movie Review: My Pure Joy (2011)

Directed by James Cullen Bressack

Starring Alexei Ryan, Cory Jacob and Lisa Frantz

My Pure Joy is a story of teenage angst taken to the extreme, it's Tipper Gore's worst nightmare come to life, because as every suburban mother of a teenage boy knows.....if you keep watching those horror movies, your going to end up being a serial killer. And that is exactly what has happened to our anti-hero, Adam ( played magnificently and with pure gusto by Alexei Ryan), who through single-handedly caring for his abusive and dying father years earlier, learned that the only way to get people to respect you is through fear and intimidation, just like the killers in his favorite slasher films.

As David completes the second season of Luther, he gets into another BBC series, Jekyll, and that leads him into a discussion of the rise of public domain monsters. He and Kevin talk about the films made from Alan Moore comic books, and which they think are the best.

Kevin talks about cartoons he watched with his daughter. He likes My Big Big Friend, while the 1999 Woody Woodpecker retread leaves much to be desired.

He then does a short segment with Jeff, in which he talks about The Shrine, and Jeff brings up Where the Dead Go to Die. For The Blue Cheese segment, Jeff reviews the latest offering from the Uncle Farts collection.

Movie Review: Melancholia (2011)

Directed by Lars Von Trier

Reviewed by Greg Goodsell

Anyone familiar with the films of Lars Von Trier and his Dogme ’95 buddies knows well enough not to expect light-hearted entertainment. Von Trier fearlessly pokes his handheld cameras into the darkest recesses of the human condition, as Breaking the Waves (1996) and Dancer in the Dark (2000) will attest to. Turning his attention to the horror genre with Antichrist (2010), Von Trier then tackled the sci-fi doomsday drama with Melancholia, with the expected devastating results.

Movie Review: Where The Dead Go To Die (2012)

Here at the Cinema Head Cheese offices on occasion we get screeners of films directed or produced by auters with bizarre pseudonyms. There’s been Creep Creepersin (Him, Corporate Cutthroat Massacre), Mr.  Creepo ( Driller: A Sexual Driller, Skin Eating Jungle Vampires), both of which have tortured a couple of our reviewers to various degrees. Now it’s Jimmy ScreamerClaus with the obvious pseudonym. This time around it's his vile animated film Where the Dead Go to Die that gets reviewed and you know what folks unlike those other "artists", it isn’t crap.

ScreamerClaus does something unique that I’ve had yet to see in a genre release – an animated horror film using computer technology to create the artificial surroundings. Pixar it ain’t, but ScreamerClaus goes to so many depraved lengths to achieve one of the most disgusting “cartoons” you’re ever gonna see.

Movie Review: My Week with Marilyn (2011)

Directed by Simon Curtis

Reviewed by Greg Goodsell

"I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure,” Screen Icon Marilyn Monroe confessed in one of her more memorable quotes. “I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.” While this quote would appear to justify bad behavior, it does shed light on the complexity of human beings. It seems that a person’s positives are frequently met with negatives that are either acknowledged and brought to the fore, or ignored. Adolph Hitler, many are surprised to discover, was actually a fairly talented water colorist.

Cinema Head Cheese: The Podcast! #39 - Across the Pond

Kevin and David decide to look around the world this week, and they start off with the brilliant BBC police drama Luther. They also talk about the upcoming Luther prequel books written by the show's writer.

Movie Review: Machine Gun McCain (1969)

For those of you who think that Italy in the late 1960s and into the 1970s was a place where only gritty westerns, strange Giallo films and rip-off zombie/cannibal films were made can benefit from this. Italy, at the time, was churning out some wonderful genre product tailored to all tastes. The aforementioned zombies and cowboys and zipper-mask killers aside, there were sci fi epics (like Alien 2, hee hee), action films, dramas and even the mobster movie. There is a general misconception that the United States was the only place the mobster genre was popular. There were Mafioso films made worldwide so why wouldn’t the home of the Cosa Nostra, Italy, get in on the act? Using some familiar American names (John Cassavetes and Peter Falk) and international sex symbols (like future Bond girl, Britt Ekland), director Giuliano Montaldo has put together an effective Mafia/crime caper/double cross flick. Thanks to Blue Underground, we can now watch this in glorious 1080p.

Movie Review: Recoil (2012)

Professional wrestlers have never been known to be the most studied thespians - some are downright awful. Hulk "The Orange Golem" Hogan, while being a legend of the squared circle has been notorious for churning out tripe like Santa with Muscles and Suburban Commando that totally negate his amusing turn as "Thunder Lips" in Rocky III. A few others have done ok, like Roddy Piper (They Live), Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson (The Rundown, Walking Tall) and amazingly the Texas Rattlesnake himself Stonecold Steve Austin (Condemned, The Expendables). In Austin's recent film from director Terry Miles' titled Recoil, he stars alongside Danny Trejo as vengeance seeking seeker of vengeance.

Recoil is a formulaic ass-kicker very much in the spirit of the better B-movie actioneers coming out of the 80's. It centers around ex-cop, Ryan Varett (Steve Austin) who has every reason to be pissed off following the murders of his family. Varett’s brand of revenge is as brutal and merciless as the men who killed his loved ones. Danny Trejo plays the main baddie, a gun-running, murderous biker named Drayke.

Movie Review: Battle Royale (2000, Anchor Bay)

Directed by Kinji Fukasaku

Starring Tatsuya Fujiwara, Aki Maeda and Taro Yamamoto

With the impending release of the much anticipated “Hunger Games” looming near, Anchor Bay Entertainment has thrown its hat into the ring with the strategic release on DVD of the Japanese cult classic from 2000, the movie that started it all, Battle Royale.

Set in the Japan of the future, the country is crumbling from within, under-age rebellion and crime is at an all time high. In a desperate attempt to curtail and discourage youth violence, the government passes into law the “Battle Royale” act. Once every year, a single 9th grade class of 40 students is chosen at random, taken against their will and transported to a remote island where they are fitted with monitoring collar's equipped with an explosive charge. Each student is given a survival bag equipped with a randomly selected weapon, which can beanything from a machine-gun, to an ax, to the lid of a cooking pot. The collars are pre-set to explode in 72 hours, with the only way of
stopping this being if there is a single collar transmitting a signal when time is up. In other words, if there is more then one person still alive at the end of the Battle Royale, then all survivors are
blown up. They soon realize they are the victims of a sick government conspiracy, and the only way to survive is to kill their fellow classmates.

TV on DVD Review: Luther (2010)

I first saw Idris Elba in his short stint as Charles on The Office. He turned out to be the perfect foil for Michael Scott and Jim Halpert, and he wasn't going for any of the tomfoolery that the office staff had to offer. He played the role perfectly straight, and that's what was needed from Charles. Elba has been a part of a slew of movies and TV shows including The Wire, Thor and 28 Weeks Later. When I came across a cop show that starred Elba as title character John Luther, I had a feeling it would be a great fit. Just a few minutes into the first episode, I was hooked into the best police drama I have ever seen.

Movie Review: Ray Harryhausen Box Set (2005)

Before the advent of computers and CGI, movie makers used a variety of approaches to achieve animated special effects. One approach was stop-motion animation, a time consuming process where miniature models were filmed a single frame at a time with slight movements to the models in between the frame shots. It was pioneered by a man named Willis O'Brien and first used in the films The Lost World (1925) and the classic King Kong (1933).

Find Ray Harryhausen at

As he sat in a theater watching King Kong, a young boy named Ray Harryhausen was so amazed by the images he saw that he decided that he would dedicate his life to bringing this amazing art form to the silver screen. And the rest, as they say, is history. His list of credits include some of the most beloved sci-fi and fantasy films of all time, including Mighty Joe Young (1949), The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (1958), Mysterious Island (1961), Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger (1977), and the original Clash of the Titans (1981).

Movie Review: White Slave (aka Schiave bianche: violenza in Amazzonia, 1985)

Directed by Mario Gariazzo

Reviewed by Greg Goodsell

In a Brazilian courtroom, wealthy teenage heiress Catherine Armstrong (Elvire Audray) tells of her tale of woe. Vacationing with her parents on her 18th birthday, her family is boating on the Amazon River when her mother and father are gorily dispatched by blow darts. Their ship is overrun by a fierce tribe of Amazonian headhunters, more clean-cut than your average varsity basketball team, all wearing nylon/polyester orange loincloths. Chopping off the heads of Catherine’s parents to keep as trophies, they march the birthday girl through the jungle to their tribal compound. Stripping her of her clothes and dignity, the tribesmen attune Catherine to their savage ways. Weeks turn to months, and after a year Catherine has fallen head over heels in love with the man (Will Gonzales) who decapitated her parents! It is only after a year in the tribe that Catherine learns who the true killers of her family were. (The nonsensical story does explain how two characters at the beginning of the story suddenly disappeared without reason, but little else.) Vengeance on her mind, she paddles across a small pond to civilization – and heads roll.

Tornado's strike up a primal fear in just about everyone. Even if your not from the Midwest and experienced them first-hand, we've all seen The Wizard of Oz and know they are serious business. An unstoppable beast that falls from the heavens, leaving a trail of destruction and death. And while most movies will tend to center around the drama of the storm itself, writer/director Patrick Rea has chosen to use it as the perfect backdrop for plunging you into a scenario much more creepy and ominous then any storm.

Movie Review: Bronson (2009)

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. I love biopics, and I'm loving everything that comes out of Magnet Releasing. When you put those two things together, I'm definitely in. We live in a world where the anti-hero is king. He's not always a villain, but he's usually a mess of a human being. Sometimes his intentions are good, but he just makes the wrong choices. We feel sympathy for his mistakes, but probably because we make mistakes ourselves, and we hope to be forgiven. Charles Bronson is sort of like that, but his intentions are generally not very good. He's just an insane criminal, and that's part of why he's England's most notorious inmate.

Before sitting down at the keyboard to write this review, I felt it appropriate to watch this movie a second time, which I am glad I did, because after watching it the first time all I could do was turn to my girlfriend and ask her, “What the fuck just happened?

Movie Review: The Deadly Spawn (1983, Blu-ray)

I first discovered Douglas McKeown’s The Deadly Spawn more than two decades ago when I rented the Continental Video horror compilation VHS of Terror on Tape. The Deadly Spawn had several of its goriest scenes featured throughout the running time. It was love at first sight. Not long after I got a hold of the porn box VHS of the feature under the title Return of The Aliens: The Deadly Spawn. John Dods’ awesome gore FX and creature design and the playful schlockiness of the production delighted my wacky monster movie tastes. In 2004 Synapse Films re-mastered The Deadly Spawn and put together one of the best releases in their existence. Now it’s here, on Blu-ray from the folks at Elite Entertainment.
