HOUSE ON ELM LAKE - Starburst Magazine

If there’s a manual on how to craft a haunted house or possession movie, House on Elm Lake followed it to the letter. Every cliché is adhered to. One would say without fail, but the sad fact of the matter is that director James Klass has no sense of how to make a film legitimately … Continued

THE CURED - Starburst Magazine

The Cured, the debut film from writer and director David Freyne, is yet another film which shows the seemingly-infinite malleability of the zombie subgenre. The director casts his zombies as rampaging victims of an infection called the Maze virus, à la 28 Days Later, rather than the lumbering undead hordes of George Romero, which is … Continued

EARTH: ONE AMAZING DAY - Starburst Magazine

BBC’s groundbreaking 2007 documentary, Earth, saw the world in macro, looking at the world as the film moves from North to the South Pole over the course of one year.

Review: Bear Family’s ‘At the Louisiana Hayride Tonight’

Review — Bear Family’s ‘At the Louisiana Hayride Tonight’

Bear Family’s latest box-set is their biggest ever, weighing in at 9.5 pounds and consisting of 20 compact discs and a 224-page hardback book. It’s the size of 20 LPs stacked on top of one another, clocking in at an astonishing 25+ hours of audio. At the Louisiana Hayride Tonight is an astonishing historical record of the country music program’s 12-year run (and then some), broadcasted on Shreveport’s KWKH-AM.

Vinyl Review: Various Artists — Jesus Rocked the Jukebox

In the press release which accompanied the arrival of Craft Recordings’ new compilation, Jesus Rocked the Jukebox, the label makes the point that the 40 tracks on the three vinyl records represent “the roots of American popular music,” just as much as they honor “esteemed gospel groups.” Those are phrases, which — to non-music nerds — might get folks nervous.

JOSIE & THE PUSSYCATS (2001) - Starburst Magazine

When Josie & the Pussycats was originally released in 2001, it came just a year after the end of the Sabrina the Teenage Witch series on the American ABC network. One would’ve thought that another modern update of an Archie Comics title would’ve been hot on its heels, but the poor box office performance of & Continued
