Bluray Review: The Sender (1982)

2 September 2015 4:24 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Giving fans one hell of a telepathic thriller, Roger Christian (Bandido)’s 1982 film The Sender has finally made its way to Bluray, and it’s one entertaining ride that really holds up incredibly well. Following Gail Farmer (Kathryn Harrold, Raw Deal, The Hunter), a woman who works at a mental hospital and her interest in a new patient only known as “John Doe #83″ (portrayed by character actor Zeljko Ivanek, In Bruges, Hannibal), The Sender does an excellent job of giving genre fans a film that is unlike any other films of its type.

Calling himself “Christ” and exhibiting typical messiah-complex like tendencies, John Doe #83 on the surface just seems like another mystery patient, who thinks he’s god. What causes Gail to gravitate towards him though, is the strange occurrences that seem to surround Doe, ones that at first seem coincidental, yet as the film goes on, she (and we »

Fear the Walking Dead Recap: Did the Premiere Leave You Hungry for More?

23 August 2015 7:27 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The way they glowered and snarled and attacked without warning… Yeah, I’m gonna have nightmares for weeks about the bratty teenagers in the premiere of Fear the Walking Dead. And the not-yet-rotting zombies in the L.A.-set Walking Dead prequel were pretty scary, too. The question is, were you creeped out enough to tune back in next week? Let’s review the gory details of the pilot, then discuss, shall we?

Punching the Numbers: Where Liam Neeson Lies in the History of “Hollywood’s Most Bankable Action Star” Runs

22 June 2015 7:57 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Liam Neeson is Hollywood’s most bankable action star. That’s a statement of fact, but how do we know it is fact? How much more bankable is he than others? First off, we take a look at the box office returns for his action films and match them against the budgets and see what sort of averages and trends pop up.

1st Disclosure: I am not a sabermetrics genius, I’m just a guy that likes to write about action movies. If somebody out there who is a sabermetrics genius saw this and said “There’s a better way to do this.”, it would only bring me joy to see my amateur work improved upon.

2nd Disclosure: I won’t be including results of The Grey and A Walk Among the Tombstones in this pool of data, while both were marketed as action vehicles and have moments of action in them, »

Blu-ray Review – Black Eagle (1988)

6 May 2015 2:31 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Black Eagle, 1988.

Directed by Eric Karson.

Starring Shô Kosugi, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Doran Clark, Bruce French, Gene Davis and Vladimir Skomarovsky.


A top CIA agent investigates a Us military plane that has crashed somewhere over Europe but comes face to face with Soviet agents operating in the area.

Much like the 1986 The Karate Kid knock-off No Retreat, No Surrender, Black Eagle wasn’t always a Jean-Claude Van Damme movie; it was a movie that just happened to feature The Muscles from Brussels, albeit briefly, in a secondary role and before he was a huge star. The real star of Black Eagle is Shô Kosugi, a name that may not mean much to those not into 1980s martial arts movie but to many the man is an action film legend, appearing in such Cannon Films classics as Enter the Ninja, Revenge of the Ninja and the hilariously naff yet brilliant Ninja III: The Domination. »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 1989

28 April 2015 11:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From a crazy early Nic Cage role to a lesser-known film starring Robert De Niro, here's our pick of 25 underappreciated films from 1989...

Ah, 1989. The year the Berlin Wall came down and Yugoslavia won the Eurovision Song Contest. It was also a big year for film, with Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade topping the box office and Batman dominating the summer with its inescapable marketing blitz.

Outside the top 10 highest-grossing list, which included Back To The Future II, Dead Poets Society and Honey I Shrunk The Kids, 1989 also included a plethora of less commonly-appreciated films. Some were big in their native countries but only received a limited release in the Us and UK. Others were poorly received but have since been reassessed as cult items.

From comedies to thrillers, here's our pick of 25 underappreciated films from the end of the 80s...

Disney, through its Touchstone banner, had high hopes for this thriller, »

La Bête Humaine and Cat People Actress Remembered Part 1 (Revised and Expanded Version)

5 February 2015 7:47 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Cat People' 1942 actress Simone Simon Remembered: Starred in Jacques Tourneur's cult horror movie classic (photo: Simone Simon in 'Cat People') Pert, pouty, pretty Simone Simon is best remembered for her starring roles in Jacques Tourneur's cult horror movie Cat People (1942) and in Jean Renoir's French film noir La Bête Humaine (1938). Long before Brigitte Bardot, Mamie Van Doren, Ann-Margret, and (for a few years) Jane Fonda became known as cinema's Sex Kittens, Simone Simon exuded feline charm in a film career that spanned a quarter of a century. From the early '30s to the mid-'50s, she seduced men young and old on both sides of the Atlantic – at times, with fatal results. During that period, Simon was featured in nearly 40 movies in France, Italy, Germany, Britain, and Hollywood. Besides Jean Renoir, in her native country she worked for the likes of Jacqueline Audry »
