Spider Baby | Blu-ray Review

23 June 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Arrow Video resurrects Jack Hill’s first solo directorial effort, Spider Baby (1967) for lovers of cult oddities. Prior to becoming a lynchpin in the Blaxploitation film movement with his signature Pam Grier titles such as Coffy (1973) and Foxy Brown (1974), Hill knocked around as co-director on B-grade horror films, including Roger Corman and Stephanie Rothman projects. Unfortunately, this strange little number didn’t see release for several years due to its producers getting tied up in bankruptcy. Originally titled “Cannibal Orgy,” the theatrical release kept the extended title of Or the Maddest Story Ever Told (several other venues played it under the title The Liver Eaters). Not nearly gritty or violent enough to warrant such provocative monikers, its eventual name remains the most befitting. Featuring horror alum Lon Chaney Jr. and an eerie early role for (an almost unrecognizable) Sid Haig, Hill was obviously inspired at arming popular genre motifs with teeth. »

‘Earthbound’ 20 years later: The greatest story ever told in a video game

6 June 2015 5:47 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Earthbound turns 20 years old today, so let’s discuss the cult classic.

****

Earthbound

Developed by Ape / Hal Laboratory

Published by Nintendo

Available on Snes, Wii, Wii U

The Snes is arguably home to some of the best Japanese role-playing games ever made, but even among such revered company, Earthbound (known as Mother 2 in Japan) stands out as a brilliant satire about growing up and our fears of conformity. It’s anarchy versus conformity only conformity doesn’t stand a chance. This often funny, always poignant coming of age tale, deeply embedded in suburban mores, centers around four kids, off to save the planet by collecting melodies while en route to defeating the evil alien force known as Giygas.

Earthbound didn’t reinvent the wheel, but it sure had fun twisting the usual Jrpg tropes. There’s a princess you must rescue, not once, but twice, who’s really just a child prodigy, »

Jesus is Alive: The original superhero on film

3 April 2015 8:33 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Lee Brown looks at Jesus on film…

It’s Easter and while many of you will be tucking into your chocolate eggs there really is somebody you ought to thank for your edible wonders. The reason behind the season. The man who can. The reason behind your hot cross buns! Jesus.

Before DC and Marvel entered the world of the superhero the Bible got there first. Over 2000 years ago in fact. To the Christian Jesus Christ entered the world to battle against evil, to save our souls from eternal damnation, and perform the ultimate sacrifice. His life for ours! And as is the norm in comic books these days Jesus may have died but He also came back to life, His resurrection power. Astounding! Not His only super power of course. He also came with the power to heal, cast out demons, and even turn water into wine. Genius!
