WRITTEN REVIEW: Going Attractions: The Definitive Story of the Movie Palace

By CORY CARR
When it comes to film history and filmmaking, I always try to expand my knowledge when I can. What kind of self-respecting film fanatic and critic would I be if I didn’t try to know as much as possible? This is why I not only hunt down documentaries, but try to shine a light on them so more people can benefit from the hard work and research put into them.

WRITTEN REVIEW: The Head Hunter - "Sword & Sorcery Lives!"

By CORY CARR
The “Sword & Sorcery” genre is one of the most produced, peaking in the mid 1980s and eventually petering out late ‘90s before the genre had new life breathed into it by Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Sword and Sorcery always played little brother to the menagerie of over the top action shoot ‘em ups, over-sexed slashers, and strange chest bursting sci-fi creature features, and yet, they remained a regular staple of the silver screen, and even more so to the straight to video movie rental market.

WRITTEN REVIEW: Automation - "The Future is Here and with it Comes Plenty of Fear"

By CORY CARR
In the ‘80s and ‘90s there were a slue of films about futuristic automatons that turn against the very human beings who they were built to replace in the work place and on the battlefield. The biggie in this sci-fi sub-genre was James Cameron’s The Terminator which spawned an incalculable number of rip-off, imitators and impersonators.

WRITTEN REVIEW: The Fare - “Full of Curious Surprises and Honesty”

By CORY CARR
“Life is a journey and not a destination”. This old saying tells us that the many experiences and hardships of life are the true reward, and come in the form of wisdom, rather than our intended goals. This hits at the heart of the newly released sci-fi/thriller The Fare, from writer Brinna Kelly and director D.C. Hamilton.

WRITTEN REVIEW: Bliss - "A Neon Nightmare - Pure Heavy Metal"

By CORY CARR
When I hear the phrase “heavy metal”, what comes to mind are bands like Judas Priest and Ozzy Osbourne – mainstays of the musical sub-genre. But beyond the connection to dark, riffy rock 'n' roll, lays the sci-fi/fantasy comics magazine Heavy Metal. Known best for it's tales of dark and dangerous dystopias, Conan-esque sword and sorcery and highly suggestive erotic imagery.

WRITTEN REVIEW: Spine Chiller - "Born of Blood & Jack O’ Lanterns"

By CORY CARR
Well, it’s that time of year when the temperatures start to drop, the leaves change color and the corpses of countless gourds litter the homes of America. And during this Autumn season, there is nothing better for those of us who seek spooky than a good horror anthology. And what could be better than a horror anthology set on Halloween?
