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

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.

FILMS FROM THE VOID is a journey through junk bins, late night revivals, under seen recesses and reject piles as we try to find forgotten gems and lesser known classics. Join us as we lose our minds sorting through the strange, the sleazy, the sincere and the slop from the past and try to make sense
