PUPPET MASTER: THE LITTLEST REICH OST - STARBURST Magazine

Since 1990’s Cat in the Brain, the last score Fabio Frizzi did for director Lucio Fulci, the composer has scored rather infrequently, with the majority of his work for Italian televsion or short films. With the exception of 2016’s Abbraccialo per me and House of Forbidden Secrets in 2013, Frizzi has been rather absent from … Continued

VIDAR THE VAMPIRE - STARBURST Magazine

Thomas Berg’s Vidar the Vampire is definitely a passion project. Not only does Berg star as the titular Vidar, he’s also the co-writer and co-director alongside Fredrik Waldeland, performed the music heard in the film, and – just to cap it off – was also in charge of casting. Unsurprisingly, the film is fairly low-budget, … Continued

Anthology horror GHOST STORIES makes the leap from stage to screen

“The Brain Sees What It Wants to See.” So goes the poster tagline for Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman’s film, Ghost Stories. Watching the film, it takes a while to figure out just what it means, but once it clicks, the film becomes one of the most rewarding horror anthologies to come along in ages.

Getting Blu: LIQUID SKY, THE DEVIL INCARNATE and CITY OF THE DEAD

You know what? Sometimes, genre and exploitation movies can be downright depressing; they’re not all joyful celebrations of excess and weirdness. In fact, some flicks can be brutally crushing examinations of how many people want to take those who are different and unique and crush them like insects

This is REKT, the column where each month one Cinepunx staffer recommends films to the rest of the fam. We may be stoked, or we may be wrecked. This month, it’s Justin Harlan’s turn to do the damage. Here are Nick Spacek‘s thoughts on Grandview, U.S.A. They shot Grandview, U.S.A., in Pontiac

It seems appropriate that the two latest books added to my bookshelf are pocket paperbacks. Sometimes, massive books devoted to film studies have a tendency to ramble on, taking far more pages than necessary to communicate their points. This made the arrival of the latest installments of Wallflower

I KILL GIANTS - Starburst Magazine

Director Anders Walter’s festival favourite fantasy film only saw a limited theatrical release before going to VOD in March 2018.
