Movie Review: Chilly Scenes of Winter (aka Head Over Heels, 1979)


Directed by Joan Micklin Silver

Movie Review by Greg Goodsell

While many would come to this expecting a “rom-com,” as Julie Kirgo mentions in the liner notes to this Twilight Time release – limited to 3,000 copies, Chilly Scenes of Winter is every inch a painful “coming-of-age” comedy very much in the manner of Withnail and I (1988).

On the outside, Charles (a very young John Heard) is as white and pleasant as Salt Lake City, the place in which he works as an office drone. Scarcely underneath it all lurks dysfunction at every turn. His roommate Sam (Peter Riegert) is a perpetually unemployed “jacket salesman.”  His beyond eccentric mother’s (the great Gloria Grahame) favorite pastime is submerging in a bathtub while wearing satin gowns. Things are proceeding roughly, until fellow office worker Laura (Mary Beth Hurt). The two meet cute, and spark a relationship, despite the fact she remains very married to a man nicknamed “Ox (the likewise great mark Metcalf, who also produced).”

After sneaking around friends and coworkers, the sensible Laura gives Charles up to get on with her life. But Charles is having none of it, starting a campaign that he thinks will make Laura leave her somewhat abusive marriage in a series of stunts that are outright stalker-ish.  It all culminates when both Charles and Sam attend an “open house” hosted by Laura and Ox in disguise as gay roommates!  Our erstwhile hero grows even less sympathetic by the minute until he too, must come to grips that he and Laura’s affair is essentially over before it began.

Chilly Scenes of Winter – at one time marketed disastrously under the title Head Over Heels is a treat to behold. We’ve seen countless comedies where the male protagonist wins out by sheer determination, and the audience grows to root for his romantic objectives, except … Charles is an immature jerk. Furthermore, he remains a naïve, gullible young man right up until the end where he finally accepts the situation that Laura doesn’t love him nearly as he loves her.

Based upon Ann Beattie’s novel of the same name, Winter is full of wonderful performances. Metcalf will be remembered by many as the ROTC heavy Doug Neidermeyer in National Lampoon’s Animal House (1978), in particular leaves a lasting impression as the too-big-for-his-britches Ox. In the film’s funniest sight gag, Heard accidentally crashes his car into a tree to which Metcalf quite casually lifts out of a snow bank. Metcalf is also notorious as the authority figure found in the classic Twisted Sister videos, "We're Not Gonna Take It" and "I Wanna Rock.’ Anyone who grew up in the eighties will never forget Metcalf’s bellowing “WHAT – do you want to do with your life?”

It is also heartening to see film noir great Grahame in a good film at the end of her life. The larger-than-life Grahame led a scandalous and colorful life, which unfortunately ended with parts in grade-Z horror pictures such as Mansion of the Doomed (1976) and The Nesting (1982). Grahame would die at the far too young age of 57, when she preferred to act in a play in Britain in lieu of seeking medical treatment for cancer in 1981.

This Twilight Time Blu-Ray release has a commentary track  with  writer/director Joan Micklin Silver and producer Amy Robinson , an isolated score track and the film’s original theatrical trailer. Equal parts biting and heartwarming, Chilly Scenes of Winter is a uniquely skewered look at love and desire.

Movie Review: Our Man in Havana (1960, Twilight Time)

Reviewed by: Hal Astell

Set in Cuba before 'the recent revolution', it would appear from first glimpses that this just couldn't fail. Produced and directed by Carol Reed, with a screenplay by Graham Greene that was adapted from his own novel, and starring no less a Great British trio than Alec Guinness, Noel Coward and Ralph Richardson. Also credited before the title are Burl Ives, Ernie Kovacs and Maureen O'Hara, hardly minor names themselves. It's as great as it ought to be, but I was seriously surprised at the content. I thought it was a spy film, and it is, but it's also a comedy which I really wasn't expecting.

Greene introduces us to the characters through humour. Guinness is Jim Wormold, a mild mannered vacuum cleaner salesman and Coward is Hawthorne, a spymaster who comes to visit him with strange questions and an offer to meet him in the gents. What he's really doing is hiring him to work for the British secret service as the title character, part of his Caribbean network, and Wormold accepts so as to be able to finance his daughter Milly's expensive equestrian dreams. Ives is a friend of Wormold's, some sort of German doctor doing research into cheese or some such, and Kovacs is the Red Vulture, a notorious Cuban official with an interest in everything and everybody, most obviously Milly.

The Scarlet Scorpion (1990) and Deadtime Stories (1986) Double Movie Review

Just when I thought I was making a dent in the pile of tripe. I mean…no, that’s what I mean. As I get closer to the bottom of the stack of DVDs, sometimes I get a double disc and dammit, that means I’m really not that much closer to getting through this craptastic supply!
But this time it’s okay because these were actually kinda fun, for the most part.

The Scarlet Scorpion comes to us from Brazil. It opens with what looks like those news reels that used to play in theaters back in the 40s and 50s. After a few stories, it closes with the announcement that the long loved The Angel comic has been adapted for radio! People across the country are shown stopping EVERYTHING they do just to listen in each week. And I mean everything - even a local priest refuses to continue an exorcism because he’s got more important stuff to do! Like find out in this week’s chapter of The Scarlet Scorpion what that rapscallion bad guy is up to and who he's trying to kill!

As the show airs each week, it seems in the real world someone is mimicking the crimes portrayed in the show. Is there a real Scarlet Scorpion running around? Gloria, a local designer, is the only one who seems to connect the dots. The police laugh her out of the station but the director of the show thinks she might be on to something. So let’s create a fan based program around her theories! We never actually get to hear it, though, because the Scarlet Scorpion is targeting her next.

Will he kill Gloria to get her off his trail? Will Alvaro Aguiar, writer and creator, be able to save his lady love on the show AND in real life? Stay tuned to find out. But first, a word from our sponsor…

Eats and Drinks Review: Mountain Dew Spiked

Every so often, I run across a beverage that immediately grabs my attention. While looking for something to drink at a local Circle K, I noticed two new Mt. Dew varieties. First off, the cans say SPIKED in big letters, which immediately led me to think that Mt. Dew had entered the alcohol arena. I'm sure that confusion is something they were prepared for, because the cans are labeled as non-alcoholic beverages.

The two available varieties are lemonade and raspberry lemonade. Knowing Mt. Dew, I wouldn't be shocked to see more flavors in the future if these are successful.

I tried the raspberry first, and I was very surprised to get a nice smooth texture. It had the flavors you expect in this mixture without the sour that lemonade or raspberry bring, and without that syrupy quality that Mt. Dew can have. The regular lemonade was the same way. Both have a nice clean flavor and are very mild. I preferred the raspberry, but I wouldn't turn down either.

Movie Reviews: Deadly Embrace (1989) and Murder Weapon (1989)


Directed by Ellen Cabot (aka David DeCouteau)

Movie Review by Greg Goodsell

Deadly Embrace: Fresh-out-of-rehab and desperate for dough – Jan-Michael Vincent (THE Jan-Michael Vincent, and not his character in Deadly Embrace, “Stewart Moreland”) takes a private eye gig at the behest of friend Evan (Jack Carter) who thinks his wife (Ty Randolph) is having a lusty affair with their gardener (Chris Bauer).  Linnea Quigley walks in and has sex with whoever, and fellow Scream Queen Michelle Bauer gropes herself in some unrelated fantasy sequences as the “Female Spirit of Sex.” People are shot and killed.

Murder Weapon: Daughters of mob bosses Dawn (Quigley) and Amy (Karen Russell) win their release from a sanitarium after performing sexual favors on psychiatrists Dr. Gram (Lenny Rose) and Dr. Randolph (Lyle Waggoner from TV’s “The Carol Burnett Show” as well as the sick-o necrophile romance Love Me Deadly, 1972). They throw a party at Dawn’s late father’s mansion and invite a bunch of boys in short-shorts for a party. There are a bunch of surprisingly graphic murders – especially to viewers accustomed to these type of projects that rarely deliver – and it was Linnea all along! Aaaah!

Movie Review: Dust Up (2012)



I admit I was a bit nervous about this one. Any movie that touts “a new unique (insert genre here)” usually ends up being neither. And just makes me very very angry.


But I’m happy to report that this film didn’t totally suck ass!

Dust Up is the story of Jack, a veteran who’s missing an eye (one eyed Jack, get it?), and lives out in the desert trying to be at peace with the world. His closest neighbor and friend, Mo, who dresses in an Indian bone breastplate, animal skin, and a feather for his sweatband, is about as mellow as they come. 

Jack’s handyman job keeps the bills paid and one day he meets Ella, a pretty young woman with a baby and an absent junkie husband, Herman (he’s a roadie), whose ramshackle ramshack is falling apart. While figuring out how to help, the husband returns in a panic - he owes $3500 to the local drug lord, Buzz. If he doesn’t get it by end of day, Herman is a dead man.

FanCam: Severus Snape and the Marauders (2016)

Due to unforseen circumstances, I am a huge Harry Potter fan. I think that the book series is well done, nay, excellent and a worthy heir to Tolkien's throne. The characterizations and plot are vivid and magical. This translates to the films, too. The Harry Potter films are very well done and translates that sense of magic and desperation and hope beautifully. Therefore, much like a Star Wars or a Lord of the Rings, you have two ways to go about a fan film: so amateurish it's fun and hokey OR well done and worthy of the original films/narratives. Severus Snape and the Marauders is incredibly well done and really does honor the tone and characters of the original films!

FanCam: Star Wars - Troops (1997)

This is, hands down, one of the funniest short films I think I've ever seen. Regardless if it is a FanCam project or not, this is FUNNY. It may be generational, though. There are a some things that one need-be prepared with in order to watch this film, from a pop culture standpoint. Not only is this a Star Wars fan film, it is also a spoof on the COPS television program. For those of you too young, or too drunk in the 1990s, to remember, COPS was filmed 'on location, with the men and women of law enforcement.' This was the beginnings of reality TV, and some if it was actually real. Camera crews would follow officers for the night, filming what they did. The show was a lot of fun and provided us law-abiding citizens with entertainment galore as we laughed and cajoled those silly drunks, prostitutes and domestic abusers that filled COPS with a seemingly unending supply of Deplorables (see what I did there?).

FanCam: Batman and Spiderman - The Chaos Continues (2014)

"Stop talking! Why don't we fight, like we used to in New York?!" Spider-man asked this of The Hobgoblin. I could make it out because the camera was very close to the muffled and masked Spidey and directed toward the Hobgoblin who was comprised, mainly, of yellow duct tape. In Batman and Spider-man: The Chaos Continues, that single line not only stands as a major plot point, it also describes a vast majority of the film. I get that these are born and made from a passion for the source material. I get that these are non-professionals with a dream. I get that. What I don't get is, roughly, forty minutes of dialogue, a non-existent plot and all the potential in the world. There are, literally, dozens of people in this cast willing to donate their time and they are instructed to do this. New title: Batmand and Spider-man: The Monologues Continue.

FanCam: Night of the Living Dead: Reanimated (2010)

This is a little different. A fan 're-imagining' of sorts. These are prevalent online, but I think that this the first shot per shot that actually had a decent release. Night of the Living Dead: Reanimated from Wild Eye Releasing takes us, finally, on a unique journey through a story that most film fans, horror and secular, are familiar with. The story itself is a remake of the original Night of the Living Dead, complete with same characters, plot devices and pacing and even uses the original audio and soundtrack. What NOTLD:R gives us, though, is over 150 artists working in various mediums in order to tell the story. It is a unique mish-mash of animated styles and interpretations that only works because of the story’s familiarity, but serves better as a cohesive inter-modal art show with a thematic backbone. The original NOTLD is a classic and has been seen, and re-seen, by millions. In its wake, though, the zombie apocalypse story has become contrived and, evidenced by even Romero’s most recent work, a unique take on the sub-genre is not forthcoming. So, what Michael Schneider and his NeoFlux Productions has done is remade the original zombie apocalypse in multiple formats. Each contribution to the film will not be the particular ‘cup of tea’ to every viewer. That’s fine and, in creating NOTLD:R in such a manner, Schneider has made the zombie apocalypse relevant again.

FanCam: Hellraiser - What's Your Pleasure? (2015)

Continuing the Clive Barker theme, FanCam takes a look at another Hellraiser fan film. This one is called Hellraiser: What's Your Pleasure? and makes the decision to include a version of the beloved Pinhead character among it's Cenobite roster. H:WYP is smart, though, as are the filmmakers behind it and that potential deflating moment of seeing your Hellbound Hero as portrayed by Leon, the guy that lives down the street is mitigated. This is a little gem, right here. If there was a Pleasantly Surprised Configuration for the puzzle box, then I would have just solved it.

March 23, 2017

FanCam: Hellraiser - Prophecy (2006)

What happens when a group of biology students decide to make a fan film meshing together two horror franchises, namely The Prophecy and Hellraiser? This is an incredibly interesting premise and, even though the execution is a bit sophmoric even for our FanCam standards, the integrity of the two worlds is kept intact and melds together beautifully. So, if one is unfamiliar: The Prophecy is about the war in Heaven wherein Gabriel and Michael are battling, with Lucifer wanting to enter the fray. Hellraiser is about the rulers of Hell, the Cenobites, that are the embodiment of sadistic fantasy and are called from the depths by a puzzle box. There. Now, get out your Hi-8 camera and lets shoot a movie!

Stage Review: The Visitation (Space55)

Well, this is a first. I’m actually watching a play that’s been recorded on DVD. I’m not actually one for plays. I’ve seen a few. I’ve enjoyed a few. But on the whole (cue Dr. Evil…) I’m not really a play person. So I’m already going into this cranky.
No shade for any of my friends who have acted in or directed or were in any way involved with theatrical productions. Gods know I have no talent for it.

The Space 55 Theater Ensemble brings us The Visitation, an hour long (thank you sweet baby jeebus) story about a married couple, Samantha and Michael. In the wee hours of one night, Sam and Michael are arguing - mostly about his drinking - when they hear a car accident outside. In comes George carrying his possibly concussed wife, Evelyn. While they beg off the cops and ambulance (they don’t believe in that non-God sanctioned nonsense), they decide to hang around and wait for Evelyn to feel better.

Okaaaaay…

FanCam: Batman - Dead End (2003)

The first edition of this was so much fun, I decided to follow up with one of my favorite Batman fan films... Batman: Dead End! Written and produced by Sandy Collara in 2003 as a showpiece, a kind of business card as a director, this eight-minute film is FILLED with bat-goodness. Many people even assert that this is the best Batman film ever made regardless if DC gave their permission or not! Not only do we get Batman, but the Joker makes an appearance as does the Predator and some Alien Xenomporphs! We can only assume that the production was inspired by the Batman vs. Predator crossover that DC had with Dark Horse in the 1990s.

FanCam: The Green Goblin's Last Stand (1992)

Welcome to the inaguaral edition of a new segment over here at the Cheese... FanCam! With the popularity of films based off of comic book, prose and video game properties taking the lion's share of the box office, I thought it would be cool to spotlight the fan-made films featuring our favorite heroes and villains! For as long as there have been video cameras, there have been fans making short and feature length films. First up is from 1992. Intended as a long-form 'audition' tape by the writer-director-star, Dan Poole, The Last Stand of the Green Goblin is a fun, nearly feature-film length, take on the classic 'Death of Gwen Stacy' story from The Amazing Spider-Man #121 and 122 (1973).

Movie Review: Begotten (1990; World Artists)

...for the most part, it's an ever-constant social stigma, that people often take things out of context, when afforded a limited view of things. With little exception, scrounging opportunist lawyers and politicians shamelessly exploit that very concept, in an effort to champion their own causes. Sure enough, the media itself zeroes in on the dirt and the grime, associated with people, places and things, giving false, or at the very least, mixed views on matters, even though the full view of matters might tell a different story...which probably explains why tabloid newspaper have been and remain, a billion dollar industry; after all, truth be known, people love the dirt...flourish on the bad news...and are pretty much indifferent to untainted normalcy (...come on, let's be honest, 'kay??). Heck, without the idea of taking things out of context...seeing only a small part of the picture, and imposing judgement...making conclusions, without looking at the big picture...like scrutinizing and criticizing framed fine art on the wall, based solely on the singular, unmoving view through an empty paper towel cardboard roll...the classic TV broadcast comedy-of-errors sitcom "Three's Company" wouldn't have lasted...what, eight seasons, was it??...

...anyone who's ever been privy of the surreal and experimental film, "Begotten", or even merely eyeballed the strikingly graphic and interpretively symbolic cover art of the limited digital release of the film, as shown here...at this point...are throwing their hands in the air, rolling their eyes, and letting out one of those exasperating 'tsk-sighs'. Really?? Comparing a beyond-bizarre-and-unconventional film, like "Begotten", with the adolescent-humor-level, playfully innuendo-teasing, comical renderings of "Three's Company"?? Really?? I mean...really?? Well, yeah...and that's OK. What those unbeknownst, who haven't had the unique and...well, 'pleasurable' and 'displeasurable' is totally at the discretion of the viewer...experience of unwittingly seeing "Begotten", need to understand, before diving into this shocking and mind-scrambling fray...or like this viewer, who was introduced to the film, via a mere unnamed 30-second-plus moment...a wayward, horrific-looking clip, sandwiched amongst others, and posted on one of the countless horror-themed social media pages...not unlike being afforded a horse-blinder's limited view of something specifically monikered, and yet, when taking it all in...for good, or perhaps for not-so-good...might be construed as being something totally different...or at least, more than a bit skewed...

Movie Review: Deathrow Gameshow (1987)

I have a long history with Deathrow Gameshow. You may be too young to remember, but in the late 1980s there were these anomalies called 'video stores.' Within these treasure troves of schlock, one could rent what was called a 'VHS' tape. On these tapes were movies. Wonderful movies. Sick movies. Deranged movies. Horrible movies. Sometimes all of these were the same movie... as is the case with Deathrow Gameshow. 1988, I'm 17 and looking for something new. I roll in and see that Bloodsucking Freaks had already been rented, so my goto sick film wasn't an option if the boxes didn't call out to me. Scanning the rows I notice Deathrow Gameshow. I pick it up and see MARK PIRRO on the box. I knew that name. How did I know that name? Prior to the internet, we had to remember things and, in a flash, it hit me... A Polish Vampire in Burbank! Oh, oh and Curse of the Queerwolf! My underground film education started early and I had been thoroughly entertained by the director's first two films... this was a no-brainer, in more ways than one. Of course, that is a wonderful thing.

MONDO WEIRDO / VAMPIROS SEXOS Premieres on BLU-RAY/DVD March 14, 2017









Los Angeles, CA (March 6, 2017.) Cult Epics presents Carl Andersen’s films, the European answer to the Cinema of Transgression of Richard Kern and Nick Zedd, except more extreme, eccentric, surreal and erotic.

“The Hard-core version of Eraserhead” –Jan Doense (Weekend of Terror)
MONDO WEIRDO: A TRIP TO PARANOIA PARADISE aka JUNGFRAU IM ABGRUND wallows in smut, sleaze, gore, splatter, and dark comedy and is set in an underground world where both vampires and punk rockers engage in hardcore sex to the highly addictive and hypnotic electro music of Model D’oo. Dedicated to Jean Luc-Godard and Jess Franco featuring his daughter Jessica Franco-Manera. Shot on 16mm stock, presented in a new High-definition transfer on Blu-ray.

“Vampire Porno”
VAMPIROS SEXOS aka I WAS A TEENAGE ZABBADOING… is Carl Andersen’s debut film and is one of the weirdest movies ever, and it will certainly shock your mind. VAMPIROS SEXOS is the ultimate European underground punk rock sex vampire film. Stylish and trashy at the same time in the best sort of way, the film also features an endlessly entrancing no-wave score by Model D’oo. Cult Epics presents the rare only existing Uncut SD version on DVD together with:  WHAT’S SO DIRTY ABOUT IT? Bonus short film. Cut-up trance noise nihilistic short film, reminiscent of the work of Throbbing Gristle and Kenneth Anger. SD

Official Press Release: Production Moving along on ROTTENTAIL Movie!

FROM SOURCE POINT PRESS:

The upcoming horror film Rottentail has begun principle photography and is currently shooting in Phoenix, Arizona.


             Source Point Press, the publishing arm of Source Point Productions, previously announced that their horror graphic novel Rottentail would soon be made into a feature film and cast Corin Nemec (Supernatural, Stargate SG-1, Lake Placid vs. Anaconda) in the lead of Peter Cotton, and the monstrous form of Rottentail. Now further casting has been done and the production of the film is underway.

Director Brian Skiba (Blood Moon Rising, Anatomy of Deception, .357) and Director of Photography Patrice Crochet have already wrapped some successful scenes in the first couple days, including a gore-heavy scene. Producer Travis McIntire says “We blew up someone’s head in a scene today, splattered it across the room, and it went incredibly well. All of the sets here look fantastic and are loaded with neat details.”

Movie Review: Muckman (2009)

While I’m not entirely convinced I’ve not incurred the wrath of someone over at Cinema Head Cheese, I have to say this latest film was not all that shitty. So that gives me hope.
Muckman is the story of a disgraced reality show host, Mick. While trying to prove the existence of a mythical monster, he was exposed as a fraud. Now he’s got a new idea, though not really because it’s just the same shit as before. But the station producer wants proof of a REAL monster, not some crap legend. 

His new crew, and the hot reporter chick from his original show who is a raging diva beeyotch, road trip out to Pennsylvania to find proof of The Muckman, a local legend. After meeting their contact, Hobbs, they go in search of the elusive creature.

Unbeknownst to the new crew, everyone else is in on yet another hoax. They set up ‘proof’ around the forest of Muckman’s existence. Though one member of the crew, Billie, is a hell of a lot smarter than the rest of these bozos and can see through the set-up, it turns out the Muckman might not be such a hoax after all.

You’re shocked, I know. But it’s not just the Muckman these yahoos have to worry about. Something else is lurking in the marshes of Muckman territory.

Nope, not joking.

Movie Review: The Lesson (2017, Blu-ray)





                 Review By:
                 James D.







”The Lesson” centers on Fin and Joel who are juvenile delinquents. They are every parent’s worst nightmare in the way that they conduct themselves daily. Fin lives with his negligent brother Jake and Jake’s girl Mia. Fin views Mia like a mother figure. Their teacher one day has enough and snaps. Mr Gale decides to abduct Fin and Joel. He straps them into chairs at a desk containing two dictionaries. This desk is the setting for the majority of the film as Mr. Gale is out to teach them the lesson he has been trying to teach them in class.

This film tackles how unruly the youth have become and how teachers are reaching their breaking points trying to handle them. The education system constantly comes under fire for the abuse teachers deliver on kids, but we never hear what could have provoked a teacher to do it. As a former “ class clown” in school and general screw up from 3rd grade to 12th, I can attest that teachers get a bad rap and deserve more credit for their jobs. This film opened my eyes to what torture a teacher does go thru, and it also opened my eyes that in a situation that could cause harm, who knows if a child can change. The acting by Hands as Mr Gale is extraordinary. He plays this very unhinged character that we are also scared of snapping even worst. There is a tinge of torture porn thrown in, but nothing too gratuitous or obnoxious. This film centers on a teacher wanting two students to learn their lessons and try to be better people.

Jess Franco's Sleaziest Coming Soon From Full Moon Features!!

From the fevered, wonderfully perverted minds of Spanish filmmaker Jess Franco and Swiss producer Erwin C. Dietrich (JACK THE RIPPER) comes the notorious women-in-prison shocker WOMEN IN CELLBLOCK 9 (aka Frauen für Zellenblock 9 and Tropical Inferno). The controversial film (it was and remains banned in the U.K.) stars Franco regulars Susan Hemingway, Howard Vernon and Karine Gambier and tells the tale of a gaggle of female freedom-fighters who are taken to a secluded women’s jungle prison where they endure all manner of violent and sexual humiliations.

Like all of the productions in the prolific Franco/Dietrich collaborative cannon (most of which are represented in Full Moon's limited edition Jess Franco DVD Collection), WOMEN IN CELLBLOCK 9 is a visually lush, erotic and explicit exploitation masterwork, armed with exotic locations, weird performances and a great, dreamy score by composer Walter Baumgartner.

Movie Review: Train to Busan (2016)

Reviewed By: James D.

South Korea gives us a zombie film that I feel people are really going to be talking about. “ Train to Busan” is the story about Seok-woo who is a fund manager in Seoul. His dedication to his job has made him oblivious to his little daughter Soo-an. She wants to see his ex wife in Busan so they take a trip that will change everything for them. The train they get on has an infected passenger who as the film goes, the virus spreads. Train to Busan comes up with very clever ways not only to introduce us to this plague but the way it spreads. Think of this as maybe (REC) on a train. The film while the opening does drag for a few minutes, when the train gets going, this film is non-stop. It could be seen as South Korea’s answer to our “ World War Z” film just more fun and exciting.
