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. It’s a shame, as the emotionally-fraught action movie has a strong potential to really break out and really demands to be seen in big screen glory. The effectiveness of the film is due in no small … Continued

THE OLD DARK HOUSE (1932) - Starburst Magazine

The bona fides of the 1932 film The Old Dark House should be enough to recommend it. Directed by James Whale, fresh off the success of the previous year’s Frankenstein, The Old Dark House features the star of Whale’s previous film, Boris Karloff, alongside Gloria Stuart, Charles Laughton, and Raymond Massey, among others. It’s a … Continued

Upon occasion, there are movies encountered which have so few redeeming qualities as to render them nigh-impossible to discuss with any semblance of impartiality. Director Chip Gubera’s Slasher.com is the very epitome of that particular kind of film. While the premise is standard – a young couple takes a weekend in the country to get … Continued

‘WEIRD AL’ YANKOVIC - KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI 2018 - Starburst Magazine

When comedic musician and king parodist of our time ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic announced that he would be undertaking a tour wherein he dropped the costumes and video screens to concentrate on a stripped-down musical experience, it seemed like a radical idea. When Yankovic explained that the tour would focus primarily on older material – and … Continued

Films From the Void: TWILIGHT PEOPLE's Mad Monsters

I think I've seen every screen adaptation of H.G. Wells' 1896 novel, The Island of Dr. Moreau, and while the 1932 version with Charles Laughton and Bela Lugosi, Island of Lost Souls, still stands as the pinnacle, 1972's Twilight People has a lot to recommend it. First and foremost, the Philippines-s
