‘Bornless Ones’ Review

Stars: Margaret Judson, Devin Goodsell, Michael Johnston, Mark Furze, Bobby T, David Banks, Victoria Clare, Gwen Holloway, Nick Saso, Rob Tepper, Lana Titov, Greg Travis | Written and Directed by Alexander Babaev

Take four outrageously good looking guys and gals, a fifth guy with some sort of life challenging disease… Move them into a new out of the way house with a secret history, not to far from an institution; have them desecrate and destroy what look to be supernatural symbols boarding up the windows and you have Bornless Ones. Oh and there’s also scary possession, craziness and a fair bit of really well done gore. Seriously well done gore!

Now that’s not to say that Bornless Ones lacks originality in any way because it really does not. Ok, we may have seen the creepy house in the middle of nowhere that scares the crap out of its occupants before,

Will 'Showgirls 2' Ever Happen?

Will 'Showgirls 2' Ever Happen?
Director Paul Verhoeven makes no qualms about it. Showgirls destroyed Elizabeth Berkley's acting career. And it's something he deeply regrets. But that hasn't stopped him from daydreaming about a sequel, appropriately called 'Bimbos'. But will it ever happen? And will it be bold enough to feature Charlize Theron, who was originally up for the lead but lost due to being an 'unknown' at the time? The New York Daily News recently caught up with Paul Verhoeven to talk about the film's failures and its history as one of the biggest box office bombs of all time.

Released in 1995, Showgirls has attained quite a cult following. It celebrates its 20th anniversary as one of the worst movies ever bestowed upon the general moviegoing public. And it's one of the few major releases to have ever secured a Nc-17 rating since the MPAA established the No Children under 17 ruling in 1990, replacing the X rating.

‘Atlantis Down’ Review

Stars: Michael Rooker, Dean Haglund, Greg Travis, Travis Quentin Young, Kera O’Bryon, Mae Flores, Darla Grese,Tony Ware | Written by Max Bartoli, Sam Ingraffia, Doug Burch | Directed by Max Bartoli

2025 – the Shuttle has been relegated to glorified taxi. On a routine mission shuttle Atlantis encounters bursts of light shutting down its instrumentation leaving it adrift in space with Rookie Astronaut Travis Black. The rest of the crew find themselves in the middle of a barren, desert wasteland. Crewmembers begin dying in bizarre ways. Travis comes to realize that he has been chosen to compete in some sort of galactic chess game with an Alien entity.

Now, I don’t want to give reviews based on the quality of special effects. Not every film studio has as much money as the big blockbusters so you know they are going to have to go for slightly less impressive graphics. Unfortunately, if

This Clip from 'Showgirls 2' Is the Funniest Thing You'll Watch All Day

"What's your dream? Owning whores?" And thus, there was Showgirls 2: Penny’s from Heaven. Billed as a parody sequel to Paul Verhoeven's hilarious and sleazy 1995 film starring Elizabeth Berkley as a stripper turned Vegas dancer (and part-time epileptic dolphin — Nsfw), part deux focuses on Rena Riffel's character from the first film, Penny (in case that glorious title didn't give it away). She also wrote, produced and directed the movie, casting several actors from the original film in the same roles (Dewey Weber/Jeff, Greg Travis/Phil, Glenn Plummer/James). Don't expect the same Showgirls, though — as this preview on the Dissolve confirms. The film had a limited theatrical release, but it's essentially a...

Showgirls 2: Penny's From Heaven, 2011

Written and Directed by Rena Riffel

Synopsis:

Las Vegas stripper, Penny Slot, sets out on an adventure to become the star dancer on a dance television show. With stars in her eyes, she tries to find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow but instead finds danger in a town more wicked than Sin City.

It's the movie virtually no one was asking for, a sequel to Paul Verhoeven's much maligned Showgirls - a film that was nominated for so many Razzies that Verhoeven himself showed up to accept the awards. But after the film bombed at the box office, it found new life on the home video market and midnight screenings. Just like Troll 2, many film fans embraced the camp factor of Showgirls and have
