Con Experience: Chiller Spring 2015

  This past weekend I made my biannual pilgrimage to Parsippany, NJ, for the Chiller convention. It has never been as fun as Monster Mania, but the day I spend there is always a lot of fun. This time, though, was a little different. The big change from events past is that I went on […]

The Drac Debate: Coppola vs. Browning

  Everyone has their favorite vampire, but most have failed to attain the legendary status of Count Dracula. And whenever you talk about classic Dracula films, most people instantly think of Bela Lugosi with his pale makeup and soul-piercing stare from the 1931 Tod Browning film DRACULA. For a lot of horror fans, this is […]

DEADtime TV: Helix ‘O Brave New World’

The biggest question going into Helix‘s second season finale “O Brave New World” was about the risky time jump thirty years into the future in the season premiere: was it worth it? Season 2 began a new plot that used little from last season’s exploits at the Arctic Biosystems base besides the immortality of certain people […]

Supersoul Brother (Vinegar Syndrome DVD) – The Serum of the Year is Here

  The 1970’s were the golden era of blaxploitation pictures. While classics like Shaft or Foxy Brown may be household names these days, movies like Supersoul Brother are known to only a relative few film-heads that like to truly dig into a genre. Director Rene Martinez started off with a revenge movie in Road of […]

The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Miss Osbourne

Jekyll_hyde2

  Full disclosure: After my initial viewing of the film, this review was going to be very negative, as I didn’t really enjoy the film. However, I decided to give it another chance, and after some digestion and tempering of my expectations, I rather enjoyed ‘The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Miss Osbourne.’  Coming from Arrow Video to […]

Little Sisters and Powder Burns (Vinegar Syndrome DVD) – deRenzy Gone Fable-Porn

  As Alex deRenzy started off his career as a filmmaker, he dabbled in documentaries. It wasn’t long before he began to focus on another kind of film: adult film. That first entry into this nearly 200 film plus career was Powder Burns shortly followed by Little Sisters, the two movies we bring to you […]

DEADtime TV: Bates Motel ‘Norma Louise’

There has always been a symbiosis between Norma and Norman in Bates Motel – while living together and sharing mutual secrets, they’ve established a bond that’s difficult to sever even during the most turbulent times. Except, of course, when Norma’s sons ask her to speak with the brother that raped her when they were younger. Norman and […]

DEADtime TV: Helix ‘The Ascendant’

“The Ascendant”‘s title refers to Peter, taking the position of leader at the Abbey – he assumes the new name Eli, he adopts a child, and he basically looks a lot like Michael standing over the wasteland that once was a vast apple orchard. But there are multiple power shifts in Helix‘s penultimate episode that are […]

DEADtime TV: 12 Monkeys ‘Shonin’

While 12 Monkeys has primarily been about Cole, with Cassie on the side, its later episodes have put his time-jumps on the backburner to explore the secondary characters around him. It’s never more apparent than in “Shonin,” which focuses on just about every character besides Cole and centralizes its plot around Ramse, stuck backwards in time after […]

Movie Review: Unfriended

  I have to admit to being a little skeptical when I first saw the trailer for Unfriended. I think I was turned off by the title. There was something about it that just sounded silly, trying to cash in on the power of Facebook, or something. I don’t know. Still, I have to admit […]

Movie Review: While We’re Young

  While We’re Young is a movie I sort of feel I should like, but I don’t. I really don’t. Don’t get me wrong, Noah Baumbach has made some good films, The Squid and the Whale and Greenberg come to mind. However, I think my taste has changed and his tendencies to the hipster side […]
