Ji Di Zhui Ji [12 Hours] (2022)

(aka, Polar Pursuit) Okay, I’ll admit it. Twelve Hours feels a lot like winning the big Jackpot. Yeah, yeah, I know I grumble all the time about all those Chinese made science fiction and horror films which keep appearing on Youku’s Youtube channel.  About how they have all these great effects, potentially interesting storylines and […]

Wolfblood (1925)

It can be almost comic to find out what science believed even a short time ago. Although the movies aren’t exactly the best guide for that. Wolfblood has been called the first werewolf movie.  This is more or less sorta true, although not in the sense you think that should mean.  It is also not […]
