Let me come right out and say it: I enjoyed this film. Most of you won’t. Joshua Kennedy is one of a small but growing group of passionate filmmakers who create interesting movies – most often retro-tinged SF, horror or fantasy – on infinitesimal budgets. He is also one of the more accomplished of this group, […]Read more "Slave Girls on the Moon (2014)"
This is one of those efforts which suffers from the comparison with what we expect it should be. Somehow, the digital age led a lot of people to experiment with new art forms, although few of them have been particularly successful. I can remember Scott McCloud in his graphic novel, Understanding Comics, envisioning comics wrapped […]Read more "Sufferosa (2010)"
Two years after Feeders became a certified direct to video hit (as Blockbuster’s number one Independent film rental of the year) the Polonia Brothers made a sequel of sorts.

Feeders, for all the inevitable flaws of a film made for next to nothing, was more or less a straightforward aliens invade and kill […]Read more "Feeders 2: Slay Bells (1998)"

It is also one of the strangest in Toho Studios’ long history. Years ago, when AMC ran it along with the first US “release” of the Heisei era Godzilla movies […]Read more "Nosutoradamusu no daiyogen (1974)"
This one veers dangerously close to being a cult classic. Ignored on its original release, it managed to generate just enough interest for Troma Films to eventually buy the rights and re-release it. Some have argued that it is, in fact, the first teen horror film in which the characters have seen other teen horror […]Read more "There’s Nothing Out There (1991)"
It starts like this: “The following is crucial plot information needed to understand this motion picture. If for some reason you fail to read all of this data in time, then you are really screwed because you’ll end up sitting there for two hours wondering what the hell is going on and realizing that you’ve […]Read more "Deceit (1992)"
