The Nightmare Man (1981)

I’ve been looking for this one for a long time. Robert Holmes was one of the greatest — if not the greatest — writer who worked on Doctor Who. He was script editor during the classic Phillip Hinchcliffe era and wrote some of the series best episodes, including Carnival of Monsters, Pyramids of Mars, The […]

Monster (2008)

The Asylum is one of those names which is instantly familiar to those of us who’ve spent far too much time in video stores. Their specialty is what are known as “Mockbusters,” movies which are more or less similar to current or upcoming hit movies and which usually feature roughly similar artwork to the real […]

A Living Dog (2019)

“Realism is a form of hypocrisy. We are telling stories that take place in simulated worlds. Genre films like scifi, fantasy or horror are just more honest about that.” “I wanted to make A LIVING DOG not only because I love genre films and independent films but also because I admire silent movies and the […]

Doom (2005)

All right, I admit it. Yeah, I know I”m not supposed to, but… I rather like this film. This sort of thing does happen once in a while.  It isn’t like I’m saying it’s good, either.  In fact, it’s kinda dumb.  Even silly, in places. In a big, full of trippy Science Fiction details, sort […]
