The Dusty VHS Corner: Wrestlers Body Slamming Cinema

20 July 2014 1:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe digs deep into The Dusty VHS Corner for a trio of straight to video actioners featuring some of the biggest stars of the squared circle…

During the 80’s when the WWE was developing into the larger than life, sometimes cartoony drama that introduced the world to things like Hulkamania and story arcs straight out of soaps, to be one of the top wrestlers you needed presence, personality and showmanship. There were some strong personalities in the wrestling arena, and the immense popularity of Vince McMahon’s entertainment machine seemed to suggest that for a select few, the transition from wrestler to acting superstar could be an easy, and potentially lucrative one.

Long before Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson broke into movies and became the big box-office draw that he is today, a host of grapplers in years gone by have attempted the same, without hitting those heights. Arguably the »

Hell Comes To Frogtown: review

2 April 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

Director: Donald G. Jackson, R.J. Kizer. Review: Adam Wing. Picture the scene. I was twelve years old at the time. Every Saturday night my dad would come home with a video from the rental store. He loved his action movies and I was introduced to the works of Stallone, Schwarzenegger and Seagal at a very young age. I couldn't get enough of film night and my love of action cinema came from there. One particular evening stands out to this day, it was the night my dad introduced us to Hell Comes to Frogtown. "What's it about then, Dad?" I enquired somewhat despondently. "Well it's about giant frogs taking over the world." I was disappointed. That was obvious. It sounded rubbish. Children don't disguise their feelings in the way that grown-ups do, so an air of unrest was inevitable as we gathered on the sofa to watch his latest acquisition. »

Arrow Films Unleashes ‘The Killers’ and ‘Phantom of the Paradise’ on Blu-ray

19 February 2014 10:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Most home video releases are mass produced and marketed by faceless conglomerates interested only in separating you from your hard-earned cash. If you look closely though you’ll find smaller labels who love movies as much as you do and show it by delivering quality Blu-rays and DVDs of beloved films and cult classics, often loaded with special features, new transfers, and more. But yes, they still want your cash, too. Arrow Films is not only the UK’s best specialty Blu-ray/DVD label, but they’re also one of the most exciting regardless of geographical boundaries. Part of their appeal can be found in their unabashed affection for genre entertainment, but they’re equally adept and interested in more highbrow fare. They love movies as much as we do, and the proof is in a catalog diverse enough to include both Cinema Paradiso and Hell Comes to Frogtown. They have two new releases hitting UK shelves »

The James Clayton Column: Sci-fi films ready for a remake

6 February 2014 1:06 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature James Clayton 7 Feb 2014 - 06:15

With the new RoboCop out now, James considers some sci-fi films that might, just might, benefit from an imaginative remake...

They remade RoboCop. I'm still finding it hard to get my head around that fact, even as I arrive at the moment I get to see the new reboot in cinemas. RoboCop remade. Paul Verhoeven's dystopian masterpiece of 1987 - the ultimate techno-tinged sociopolitical action movie - remade. Really? I mean, really?

I'm pretty sure that in ancient aeons past a divinely-appointed prophet laser-scribed "Thou shalt not remake RoboCop, creep!" on a titanium slab of commandments to be observed by obedient future generations. Nothing is sacred though and, alas, RoboCop is remade, rebooted and upgraded in line with modern filmmaking standards for today's drastically altered multimedia marketplace.

To fill you in on the details you probably already know, the PG-13 rated reboot (really?) is »

Blu-ray Review - Hell Comes to Frogtown (1988)

4 February 2014 1:50 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Hell Comes to Frogtown, 1988.

Directed by Donald G. Jackson and R.J. Kizer.

Starring Roddy Piper, William SmithSandahl Bergman, Eyde Byrde and Cec Verrell.

Synopsis:

Sam Hell is a prisoner of the female faction who took over the Us after nuclear war. Mutants thrive in the wasteland while humans face possible extinction due to infertility. Bomb strapped to his crotch, Hell is forced to rescue a group of fertile women from a harem ran by an evil mutant gang.

Imagine if Planet of the Apes didn't have the social commentary, was a lot simpler, more misogynistic, with less character and frogs instead of apes and you should get a good idea of what to expect from Hell Comes to Frogtown. A dumb (but campy fun) 80s action-comedy starring wrestling legend Roddy Piper.

Released the same year as John Carpenter's They Live (which also features Piper), Hell Comes to Frogtown paints »

Hell Comes To Frogtown Blu-ray Review

1 February 2014 3:07 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Directors: R.J. KizerDonald G. Jackson

Starring: Roddy PiperRory CalhounCec VerrellJulius LeFloreWilliam Smith and Sandahl Bergman.

Running Time: 86 minutes

Certificate: 15

With the 20th Century drawing to a close, nuclear war has wiped out civilization as we know it. The embattled human race’s last remaining hope lies with one man and his loaded weapon. Sam Hell may be an ex-con, but he also happens to be one of the last surviving fertile men on the planet. Now, under the custody of a group of feisty female fighters, Sam finds himself enlisted on a mission to impregnate a harem of beauties. Sounds cushy enough, but the ladies in question are prisoners of Frogtown home to a gang of mutant (and ill-mannered) amphibians!

The film is one I remember discovering as a kid during the height of VHS rental period of the late 1980s. Probably mixed in with »

Eat lead froggies! Hell is coming to Frogtown

17 January 2014 9:38 AM, PST | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

Some films stay with you. Which is definitely the case with Arrow Video's upcoming release, Hell Comes to Frogtown. I remember watching this as a young child. My dad would bring a film home every Saturday night. The quality would vary of course, and even at the tender age of eight or nine I didn't expect much from a cheesy action sci-fi movie starring wrestler turned actor Rowdy Roddy Piper. Ever the critic I suppose. What did I know? The film has stayed with me ever since, though I've never had the chance to buy it until now. Arrow Video are releasing this cult classic on DVD and Blu-Ray in a Dual Format Edition, available for the first time on January 27, 2014. So bad it's good? You better believe it. Synopsis: With the 20th Century drawing to a close, nuclear war has wiped out civilization as we know it. The embattled »
