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

Comet's Over-the-Air Sci-Fi Goodness, Or: How I Cut the Cord and Learned to Love Watching TV Again

At the beginning of this year, my wife and I took a look a our viewing habits and decided the $50+ we were paying a month to the cable company could be better distributed elsewhere in our budget. So, we dropped cable, and went out to buy a digital converter box and HD antenna. We lost a few local ch

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

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

'King Cohen' himself, Larry Cohen, on the new documentary about his career

Listing all of the films made by director Larry Cohen would be pages long, and if you added in the number of TV show episodes, it'd be pages and pages past that. Even if you were to distill it down to the number of Blu-Ray reissues over the last few years, it would be absurdly lengthy. Suffice it to

Peter Jackson’s 1996 ghost story, The Frighteners, was the director’s first big Hollywood production. It didn’t do so hot, making just a little bit above its $26 million budget. Given the fact that the film’s star, Michael J. Fox, would make his triumphant return to the small screen just two months
