Bluray Review: Death Walks Twice Collection

25 May 2016 3:43 PM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

As a die-hard horror-phile, I owe a mound of gratitude to Dario Argento’s Suspiria for single-handedly introducing me to the foreign horror film. Before sitting through that amalgamation of bright-colored visuals and slick murder sequences, I had no idea that horror films were even made outside the U.S.  Though the local mom and pop video houses and grocery stores spread around the area I was growing up in had some of them lining their shelves, I would have never known that they came from distant regions across the world. As a young teen living during the era of a very moral and conservative presidency, there was an unmistakable spark inside of me that had been lit after watching the original Friday the 13th that was yearning to become a bright, burning inferno. Growing up a very sheltered child, I attempted to find every book and periodical that would »

Bluray Review: What Have You Done To Solange?

25 March 2016 3:23 PM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

As the then brand-new format of the Digital Versatile Disc began making it presence quite apparent in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, hundreds upon hundreds of horror films that had either been forgotten or banished into obscurity suddenly began to resurface and slowly obtain a devoted audience. Everything from lesser-known slashers and overlooked art-house fare to catalogs full of lushly photographed pieces all coming out of the seventies and eighties  were either finding their first ever releases on the format or being re-released in limited special editions.  Distributors like early forerunners Anchor Bay were taking it upon themselves to locate and dig out these movies, give them glorious restorations and special features and release them to the buying public, delighting horror connoisseurs across the world. What resulted was an overwhelmingly renewed interest in and unexpected demands for films of that era, in particular the giallo that all began in »

Bluray Review: The Mutilator

21 March 2016 9:40 PM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Ah, The Mutilator, the memories of my teenage years  you bring back. I remember the exact moment I gazed upon your VHS box in the summer of 1987 at El Chaparral Supermarket and held you in my arms for the very first time. Your artwork sent chills down my spine and I knew right then and there at thirteen years old that I would never have the cojones to insert you into my Vcr and enjoy you the way I wanted to. I wouldn’t muster the courage to view you until four years later in 1991 when my best friend’s brother brought it home from the video rental department of the supermarket he managed. I felt guilty for doing so since my parents forbade slasher films in our house but there was that wonderful curiosity that I would carry in me since the first time I saw that box (and »

Scott Reviews Sergio Martino’s Your Vice is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key [Arrow Video Blu-ray Review]

8 March 2016 10:48 PM, PST | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

Your Vice is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key calls to mind what Orson Welles said of Paper Moon – “That title is so good, you shouldn’t even make the picture, you should just release the title!” For the first twenty or thirty minutes of Your Vice, I thought Welles’ advice especially apt. People keep dying in grisly ways around Oliviero (Luigi Pistilli), a failed writer who’s nonetheless held onto a pretty great mansion and is plenty creepy enough to be a rather obvious suspect. He regularly hosts parties for hippies as a way to amuse himself, feel connected to the kids, and provide a public platform from which he can get off on abusing his wife, Irina (Anita Strindberg). She’s timid, trapped in a hellish marriage, and genuinely terrified of Oliviero’s late mother’s cat (in her defense, the cat is named Satan »

Criterion Close-Up – Episode 28 – Slacker

19 February 2016 5:00 AM, PST | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

Mark and Aaron are joined by Cole & Ericca from the Magic Lantern Podcast. They are Austin, TX residents and shed a lot of insight into this landmark independent film, Richard Linklater and his involvement in the Austin Film Society. They also talk about how the film reflects the city of Austin, and how much the place has changed in the years since.

About the film:

Slacker, directed by Richard Linklater, presents a day in the life of a loose-knit Austin, Texas, subculture populated by eccentric and overeducated young people. Shooting on 16 mm for a mere $3,000, writer-producer-director Linklater and his crew of friends threw out any idea of a traditional plot, choosing instead to create a tapestry of over a hundred characters, each as compelling as the last. Slacker is a prescient look at an emerging generation of aggressive nonparticipants, and one of the key films of the American independent film movement of the 1990s. »

DVD Review: Five Dolls for an August Moon

8 February 2016 2:40 PM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆ Gratuity is the watchword for Italian giallo cinema; blood, nudity and violence are all hallmarks of the genre. It is more than a little surprising, then, that Mario Bava's Five Dolls for an August Moon is a rather tame entry in Arrow Video's latest slew of high definition giallo releases. 'Tame', of course, is a relative term, and while Bava's film can't quite boast the sheer volume of sex and gore of What Have You Done to Solange? or Your Vice is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key, Five Dolls for an August Moon still retains an impressive body count, impossibly buxom cast and an Italian aesthetic of opulent excess.
