Movie Review: UnSEXpected (Blu-ray, Digital Playground)

Review By: Rob Sibley

Director: Robbie D
Company: Digital Playground

“UnSEXpected” is a new production from the folks over at digitalplayground.com. The film stars Andy San Dimas, Brooklyn Lee, Sabrina Taylor, Stoya, Erik Everhard, James Deen, and Manuel Ferrara . An all-star cast of the adult film industry if there ever was one.

Stoya stars as a girl who appears innocent to her sister and friends, but is truly a sexual tsunami in the sack. The secret is revealed only to the men who by chance have an intimate encounter with the beauty.

Yep that's the plot, don't we don't watch porno's or “adult entertainment” for the plot now do we? Now this is a tough nut to crack (no pun intended) but I'll give this review my best shot by breaking it into scenes.

Movie Review: Hold Your Breath (2012, Blu-ray)

Review By: Rob Sibley

Hold Your Breath is Jared Cohn's latest blood bath of fun. Quick history lesson, HYB was the first Asylum film to receive a theatrical release and it got one for a reason. This is a kick ass film on all fronts. Notice I said film, not flick. Big difference between the two, a flick is a film you spend 90 minutes with and you soon forget it. A film is something you'll watch, appreciate and then re-watch and tell your friends about.

Movie Review: Tai Chi Zero (2012, Blu-ray)

Reviewed by Rob Sibley

“Tai Chi: Zero” is a film I’ve been looking forward to checking out for sometime. The mixture of crazy wire-fu martial arts with steam punk sounded like a fun mash up of genre’s. Having watched the film, I can say the trailers marketed the film very well. What you see is what you get and in this case that’s a very good thing.
Directed by Stephen Fung mostly known as an actor for the fun Gen X cops or to a lesser extent Gen-Y cops, is a solid and accomplished director as well. Having helmed the over the top kung-fu comedy House of Fury. One does get the impression watching this though that Mr. Fung tries a bit to hard in the humor department. You can tell the man idolizes the work of the great Stephen Chow and I wouldn’t be surprised if Chow’s modern day classic “Kung Fu Hustle” played a bit of an inspiration on this bad boy.

Movie Review: Our Man Flint (Blu-ray)

Looking back at film history, it seems that so many of the most influential films in the super spy sub-genre graced the silver screen in the 1960’s. The decade is arguably the peak for these types of movies - with that said, they are still a blast now to watch. The James Bond films had the biggest impact which helped in turn bring about rip-offs from Europe and even some enjoyable franchises in their own right like the Matt Helm series (The Silencers, The Ambusher’s and Murderers’ Row) and the less goofy but delightfully entertaining Derek Flint films, Our Man Flint and In Like Flint. Daniel Mann’s Our Man Flint makes its Blu-ray debut courtesy of Twilight Time in a brand-new release decked with all kinds of extra goodies.

Derek Flint (James Coburn, Cross of Iron and Major Dundee) is a super agent who really doesn’t need to be a super agent – the guys loaded. He also has zero trouble with the ladies enjoying his own “me” time meditating between two chairs. Flint isn't doesn't have as much an obligation as say James Bond but when his boss calls onto him to save the world from a diabolical chaos-creating group called Galaxy, Flint is summoned away from his carefree life to do his duty.

Movie Review: Snow Shark (2011)



Review By: Rob Sibley

“Snow Shark”... were should I begin? Let's start off by saying I love two things more then life itself. Coffee & cigarettes... whoops I mean shark movies and no budget films. Well Snow Shark is a shark movie and it definitely was shot for no money.

For me the lower the budget of a film is the more I like it. I can appreciate C-grade acting, shoddy editing, dim photography, zero production design and low grade digital cinema. Snow shark possesses all of those qualities and then some. 

Movie Review: The Blue Lagoon (1980, Blu-ray, Twilight Time)



Review By: Rob Sibley

Twilight Time has brought “The Blue Lagoon” to Blu-ray for the first time and it's a sight to behold. The release is limited to 3000 copies so if your a fan of this picture be sure to obtain a copy ASAP.

Let me start off by saying I am a huge fan of this film. As much as I love a good ultra violent action or horror film I have a soft spot for the lighter side of cinema. I remember staying up till 1 in the morning when I was a kid to see “The Blue Lagoon”. All my friends at school were talking about it. Take in mind when I was 5 years old the film was already 15 years old. But boy o boy was it an event. Everyone in my class was staying up to catch this film.

Cult Epics Brings Their Shocker "Pig" And More To Blu-ray!


WHY GOD PERMITS EVIL
‘PIG/1334”
PREMIERES on BLU RAY/DVD Combo: January 29th, 2013

Los Angeles, CA (January 2013.) In 1998 a 16mm experimental film was made, which became the inspiration of a new genre: torture film. PIG involves graphic violence with no use of special effects. PIG, about a killer and his victim, was the last project of Rozz Williams (formerly known of the rock group Christian Death) who committed suicide April 1, 1998 a month after the completion of the film. 13 Years later a follow up was made: 1334, an underground ghost story inspired on true occurrences following the death of Rozz Williams and the making of PIG. PIG stars (among James Hollan,) Rozz Williams who also created the score. 1334 contains a never before released soundtrack by Rozz Williams and the actor/musician Dante White Aliano, the film also stars Bill Oberst Jr. Both films were made by Nico B, the founder of Cult Epics.


Movie Review: Officer Down (2013)

Review By: Rob Sibley

“Officer Down” looks like your typical direct to DVD cop thriller, this is only partially true. The script is ho-hum, it has been there, done that written all over it right down to it's sloppy cover art. But what elevates this flick above your normal cops and crooks pot boiler is the excellent cast.

Headlining the flick is the always fun and intense Stephen Dorff who plays Det. David 'Cal' Callahan. Yes you read that right, obviously the writer was a Don Siegal/Clint Eastwood fan. Well Mr. Callahan is going through a rough patch. He's pulling a Max Payne big time, popping pills and drinking like a fish like any good troubled movie cop should.

Movie Review: Inside John Lennon (2003)


Movie Review by Greg Goodsell

How can you properly do a biography on one of the 20th Century's most complex artists in the space of 46 minutes, with a handful of talking heads interviews, grotty newsreel footage everyone has seen a million times and without the money to play any of his timeless compositions? The answer: You can't. Inside John Lennon is a right bloody rubbish documentary lacking the wherewithal to do its subject justice. Reminiscent of cable TV's E! Documentaries, the paltry resources can't begin to map a highly significant time in popular culture, and does its subject no favors. The only value that Inside John Lennon may have are young people who have no idea that there was a thriving popular music long before Justin Bieber.

Movie Review: Seal Team Six: The Raid On Osama Bin Laden (2012)

Review By: Rob Sibley

Let's get this out of the way. This review could go one of two ways. I could attack the film for it's sloppy handling of real life events and the way the soldiers even carry there weapons is wrong. This is pretty much a Call of Duty film come to life but that's not a compliment. So much information is available on Seal Team Six and the raid on Osama that I cannot forgive the filmmakers for messing up. If this film was a work of pure fiction I'd forgive... but come on you have some A list talent on your roaster and hand them a script this clunky?



The other way this review could go is my own personal beliefs about the politics, which I prefer to keep to myself so let's just focus on the rights and the many many wrongs this film did. This review will written with “entertainment” in mind because trust me this is a film that is to fictional to take seriously. To see the real deal on what went down, see the much better “Zero Dark Thirty” a film that is nearly perfect on all levels.

Movie Review: Triad Wars (2008)

Directed by Dennis Law
Starring Sammo Hung Kam-Bo, Simon Yam and Niu Tien
Run Time: 117 minutes
Rated: R

In the midst of a violent gang war, a powerful Triad leader is faced with losing a grip on his power. As his empire slowly crumbles from within and his trust in those closest to him dwindles, violence escalates as the Triad starts clashing with other Triads among the Hong Kong community. Faced with his only option, he’ll resort to violent ways to regain his status and reclaim the respect of his Triad.

This was a movie that for me just seemed to bite off way more then it could chew. There was nothing about the story-line itself that was disagreeable, and in fact I have a hard time disliking any type of Asian gang-war movies. I mean, who doesn't like well choreographed blood soaked sword-fights? And all those hot Asian cuties who make their way into these kinds of films? And indeed, Triad Wars offers fairly decent doses of both of those things. So what's not to like?

Movie Review: The Lost Films of Herschell Gordon Lewis


When the word “lost” is used referring to the films of a very popular cult filmmaker come to mind people tend to listen. Some movies are just fine staying lost, but when those films are from the great Herschel Gordon Lewis (Blood Feast, 2000 Maniacs, and The Gore Gore Girls), good or bad, you just need to see what they’re about.  HG Lewis shot three sex films between 1969 and 1971 that fell completely off the radar – The Ecstasies of Women, Linda and Abilene and Black Love all under the pseudonyms of Mark Hansen and R.L Smith.  Thanks to some major digging in film vaults the movie archaeologists over at Vinegar Syndrome have unearthed all three films and remastered them for their debut release. The Lost Films of Herschell Gordon Lewis Blu-ray / DVD Combo is Vinegar Syndrome's launch title  Debuts are make or break for any new company but with H.G Lewis’ name attached to these creations it could be something enjoyable for fans of Lewis.

The first film on the Blu-ray (all chronological) is the 1969 sex comedy The Ecstasies of Women. Nearly half of “Ecstasies” takes place in a titty bar with numerous topless gals bouncing their massive areola in the background. A group of gentlemen sit at a table chatting with the various strippers. Their pal Harry (Walter Camp) is enjoying a bachelor party the boys are throwing for him. Stories are told by Walter that usually lead to him nailing a beautiful woman.

Movie Review: Basket Case III - The Progeny

Anyone who is a fan of truly bizarre cinema more than likely has checked out a film directed by Frank Henonlotter. Synapse Films has been one company to really put forth some fine releases of his films. Frankenhooker has seen a Blu-ray edition, Brain Damage was put out several years ago with all kinds of cool extras and Basket Case II made it's debut not long ago on DVD. It was only a matter of time that they got their hands on Henonlotter's second sequel and remastered it. Now all three films are available in the United States which should make admirers of wild story of Belial, Duane and all their gruesome hi-jinx cheer.

For those not versed in Basket Case lore, Duane Bradley (Kevin Van Hentenryck, Basket Case II and III)  is on the move through the grimy underbelly of New York City. Along with his mysterious basket case and a stack of cash, Bradley has everything he needs to live day to day in the Hotel Broslin. All the dregs living in the Hotel Broslin have their suspicions of Duane and what is exactly living in that wicker basket. It isn't long before Belial, Duane's Siamese twin brother is revealed to the audience in appropriately bloody manner. Belial's not quite as nice as Duane but he does share some common toward the medical staff that cut the brothers apart. Finding the doctor and nurse that "disfigured" these two siblings and exacting some good ol' vengeance is the goal for both. In Basket Case II the surroundings change for Belial and  Duane, but the results continue to be the same as they cause chaos in their Aunt Ruth's freak friendly mansion.

Movie Review: Nailbiter (2012)

Before I even start this review... I can safely say I've seen the face of the new man of horror cinema and his name his Patrick Rea. This man just oozes talent, I have seen a handful of his short films and was very impressed but I wasn't sure how this feature film “Nailbiter” would be.

Movie Review: The Demented (2013)

Fear is something that has been forgotten in the horror movie lately. It's a genre that decided that gore and nudity trumped all else. Every so often, I find something that can actually put me on edge and make me feel worried for the characters. I'm also very tired of the zombie genre. It's something that's becoming tired and awful. Even worse is the zombie-created-by-a-sickness realm. It's a dead horse (pun intended) that filmmakers are beating the hell out of. Some way, somehow, The Demented, like a corpse climbing from its shallow grave, manages to live in this world while keeping itself above the fray. Yes, it's a zombie via disease story that actually broke through the muck and into my shriveled little heart.

Interview: Director Jared Cohn

Interviewed by: Rob Sibley

Jared Cohn, the director of the amazingly awesome 12/12/12, who also made horror history with the first theatrically released Asylum horror flick, Hold Your Breath, was kind enough to take some time out of his busy schedule to do a fun little one-on-one interview. I will say this, to me Jared is one of the best working horror directors on the Indie scene.

Rob- Hey Jared, I want to thank you so much for doing this interview. I figured we'll mix it up a bit and just do more a casual chat then an interview. Is that cool with you?

JC- For sure, I'm a casual kind of guy. And I appreciate you having me on the show! James DePaolo was very cool to hook it up. Shout out to him and Wicked Channel.

Movie Review: The Wild Geese (Blu-ray / DVD Combo)

More than 30 years before action superstar Sylvester Stallone corralled a bevy of top talent for his smash hit The Expendables, veteran director Andrew V. McLaglen (Chisum, The Sea Wolves) made his own film starring some of Britain's finest actors with his feature The Wild Geese. Severin Films has taken the action classic, remastered it and stacked it with extra features for their own American release that should please fans of balls-out mercenary mayhem.

Richard Burton leads the cast as Colonel Allen Faulkner, the leader of a group of "mature" mercenaries in the unforgiving surroundings of South Africa to track down a kidnapped president played by Wintson Ntshona (Dogs of War, Ghandi). After agreeing with millionaire Sir Edward Matherson (Stewart Granger, The Prisoner of Zenda), to gather a group of his hand-picked men (Roger Moore, Richard Harris, and Hardy Kruger), Faulkner quickly moves forward to prepare his men for the risky mission.

Movie Review: The Assassins (Blu-ray, 2012)


Reviewed By: Rob Sibley

“The Assassins” is the directional debut of Linshan Zhao, starring Chow Yun Fat. Now before you get all excited this isn't a bullet ballet film like “A Better Tomorrow ”, “The Killer” or “Hard Boiled”. The Assassins is a Chinese period piece, a costume drama if you will. Set during The Three Kingdoms era of China. Quick note, if your interested in this time period be sure to check out John Woo's “Red Cliff” films and Daniel Lee's “Resurrection of the dragon”.

In The Assassins, Chow plays real life General Cao Cao ruler of Wu Kingdom. The title itself refers to a group of lovers played by the stunning Liu Yifei (White Vengeance) and Hiroshi Tamaki (Midnight Eagle). They play the lover assassins very well and you can tell from the very start that their relationship is doomed. With Tamaki being a eunuch and Yifei playing a concubine. Their story is truly an emotional one.

Movie Review: Lost Horizon (1973, Blu-ray)

Review by- Rob Sibley

Musicals are hit or miss with me, sometimes I dig em... other times not so much. So I was pretty damn curious when I popped in the Twilight Time Blu-ray release of 1973's “Lost Horizon”. Before seeing the film I already knew that it was a massive failure for the studio and was pretty much a joke in Hollywood. I can happily say I enjoyed this wonderfully inept musical. Yes, it's a bad film but with a lot of good stuff in it. 

LH is a musical remake of the classic 1937 Frank Kapra film which starred Ronald Colman and Jane Wyatt. That film by all means is a masterpiece of it's time and still holds up to this day. Sadly the musical remake of which I'm reviewing didn't have the talented Kapra involved. But they did bring in a heavy weight to do the music and it was none other then the legendary Burt Bacharah. On top of that you have the acting... well singing talents of Peter Finch, Liv Ullman, Sall Kellerman, George Kennedy, Olivia Hussey, Michael Yorke, Bobby Van and last but certainly not least the late great British thesp John Gielgud.

Movie Review: They Live (Blu-ray/DVD Combo)



Reviewed By: Rob Sibley

“They Live” will always be one of my favorite John Carpenter films. Shot back in 1988 and starring the almighty Roddy Piper. Shot on a shoe-string budget of 4 million dollars, John Carpenter is able to make every single dollar appear on screen. At first what appears to be a rather screwball concept, a drifter (Piper) wonders into town looking for work. He's a blue collar dude, not a super hero, he's an everyman, a man we can root for. Well it doesn't take long for Piper to figure out somethings going on...

He grabs a pair of shades (Ray Bans no less) and when he puts them on, he sees he's surrounded by aliens and alien propaganda. That's where the film gets really interesting. Now I know if your reading this review, you've seen and love “They Live”. So I don't need to convince you that it's an excellent film. But I won't spoil certain plot points because I'm sure there is still a younger audience out there who love John Carpenter but who haven't seen this film yet.

Movie Review: Creep Van (2012)

Reviewed by: Rob Sibley

Jigsaw drives a van... in a film called “Creep Van”. No it's not Jigsaw, but a fella who has his ride rigged up with various devices of death. The Creep is played by Mike Butler who enjoys riding around picking up hitchhikers consisting of bikers, a beach babe and anyone stupid enough to wanna jack a rusted old van.

The “hero” if you want to call him that of the film is Campbell (Brian Kolodziej) who's pretty much a slacker who gets a job working at a car wash so he can buy a car. The car or in this case van he's interested in purchasing just so happens to be the “Creeps” van. I wish I could say there was more to the movie then this but their really isn't. Campbell is given a love interest in the form of Amy (Amy Wehrell). Sadly they share pretty much zero chemistry despite both actors trying their hardest.

Movie Review: I Heart Monster Movies (2012)

Reviewed by: Rob Sibley

“I Heart Monster Movies” is a seventy five minute documentary which is a true love letter to the horror genre and culture. Let's start off, before I popped the DVD into my player I quickly read the synopsis and took a look at the images on the back cover. On the back cover is Sid Haig, Tom Savini and other horror greats. So I figured “Oh boy, seventy five minutes of stories I've heard before.” Well I was wrong... despite the short running time they pack a lot of great stuff into this documentary. Now if you're reading this, you are a horror fan. So you know that we horror fans have a bad rap with the “mainstream”. Not always, since horror these days is big business. Back in the day, films like Hostel and The Saw series would have played at the drive-ins and would have gotten slapped with NC-17's. Now  torture is mainstream and people pay a lot to watch it. Why? That's another discussion for another time.
