Ghost Source Zero (2017)

I am in the minority on this one. Ghost Source Zero has generally received rather poor reviews and I’ll admit you could list quite a catalog of flaws if you chose. But then, that’s true of a lot of low-budget and Independent films. However, this is a remarkably intelligent film, filled with all sorts of […]

The Mind’s Eye (2015)

It came as a bit of a surprise that I actually liked this one. I didn’t think much of Joe Begos’ first film, Almost Human, about a man who is abducted by aliens then returns years later as something no longer human. It was meant as an homage to those old Eighties unstoppable killer films, […]

PSI Factor (1980)

Darkman (1990)

Wow. I really miss Sam Raimi.

Now, I know the cynical among you will say that this is because someone in Hollywood waved […]

God Told Me To (1976)

(aka Demon) This one is almost impossible to sum up. This is partly because any attempt is going to carry even the most circumspect summary into spoiler territory.  However, it is also because this is a film that starts in one place and then moves into stranger and stranger places which seem to have little […]
