Review: Vanish

25 February 2015 2:49 PM, PST | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

It’s a very satisfactory feeling to come across films these days that are concerned with not only being entertaining, but a lot of Fun. Films that are not only throwbacks to the exploitation films of the old days, but are also able to recapture that feeling of bloody and hilariously  fun genre films (another one of recent times that I enjoyed immensely was Jen & Sylvia Soska’s Dead Hooker In A Trunk) are hard to come by, and when they do appear, it’s one hell of a good feeling. Bryan Bockbrader’s VANish is one of those films, a great entertaining time that pays homage to exploitation revenge films of the past, while standing on its own two feet and being a blood-soaked good time from start to finish.

Taking the somewhat simple concept of Jack, Max and Shane (Austin Abke, writer/director Bockbrader and Adam Guthrie), three »

VANish (2015) review

23 February 2015 3:25 PM, PST | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

By Robert Thompson

What do you get when you mix part action flick, part horror flick, part thriller, and part buddy comedy/road trip movie? Probably something fairly close to VANish. After getting to enjoy Dark Sky Film's most recent release, “Starry Eyes”, for review, I was in no way going to turn down the chance to enjoy their next one.

So, the story set up is this: Jack (Austin Abke), and Max (Bryan Bockbrader, who also writes, and directs) are buddies that decide to kidnap Emma (Maiara Walsh), and hold her ransom, wanting five million bucks from her father (Danny Trejo). Along the way they get help from Afghanistan Vet Shane (Adam Guthrie). However, as the story progresses, we learn that not everyone on this little road trip from hell are who they say they are.

That's basically all I want to give away, as I really enjoyed the flick, »

'Lost' Star Joins Adam Sandler in Netflix's 'Ridiculous 6'

16 February 2015 4:29 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following the news last month that Ridiculous 6 will be the first project in Adam Sandler's four-movie Netflix deal from September, Lost star Jorge Garcia has joined the cast. Warner Bros., the studio that produced Adam Sandler's last comedy Blended, was previously in talks to distribute the Western comedy Ridiculous 6. The studio backed out after both Blended and Seth MacFarlane's Western A Million Ways to Die in the West underperformed at the box office.

Adam Sandler stars as a man who was raised as an orphan by an Indian tribe in Ridiculous 6, which is described as a spoof of The Magnificent Seven. Taylor Lautner, Luke Wilson, Rob Schneider and Terry Crews are playing the orphan's half-brothers. Last month's report revealed there is one more half-brother yet to be cast, so it's possible that this is who Jorge Garcia is playing. Nick Nolte plays the long-lost father of Sandler's character, »

‘The Burning Dead’ Review

14 February 2015 1:41 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Danny Trejo, Thomas Downey, Moniqua Plante, Nicole Cummins, Kevin Norman, Robert F. Lyons, Kyle T. Heffner, Julia Lehman, Tom Nagel, Jenny Lin, Adam Gregor, Robert Amstler, Matthew W. Tate, Morgan Lester, Jailene Arias | Written by Jason Ancona, Jeff Miller | Directed by Rene Perez

Say, you know what would have made the Tommy Lee Jones disaster movie Volcano better? Lava zombies and cult icon Danny Trejo, if Rene Perez’s undead disaster movie is anything to go by. When a simmering volcano blows its top in small-town America, the locals have more to worry about than simple immolation – the emergence of a horde of long-buried zombies from within adding considerably to their woes.

A small band of survivors hustle together to escape both the perils of the lava and the zombies, hunkering down in a woodland cabin, where the crinkly old resident within is undergoing some serious social media withdrawal symptoms. »

DVD Review – Collection (2015)

9 February 2015 2:15 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Collection, 2015.

Directed by John Herzfeld.

Starring Sylvester Stallone, Thomas Jane, Danny Aiello, Lauren CohanKyra Sedgwick, Danny Trejo, Tom Sizemore, Nelly, Kevin Connolly, David O’Hara, Kelsey Grammer, Tom Berenger, Terry Crews, Cary Elwes, Frank Stallone, Elizabeth Henstridge.


A motivational book written by a mystery author inspires a cross-section of different people to re-evaluate their lives.

When a film boasts as much screen talent as Collection does then it’s pretty hard to see how it could fail. The trouble is that having names such as Stallone, Trejo, Berenger, Aiello et al in your film doesn’t mean a thing unless you’ve got the material for them to go to work with, and Collection is a film that is in desperate need for something – anything – to justify having so many big name actors on board.

A lightweight plot about a motivational book called ‘Reach Me’ (the original, and better, »
