Film4 FrightFest 2015 Review – Banjo (2015)

Banjo, 2015

Written and directed by Liam Regan

Starring James Hamer-Morton, Damien Morter, Dani Thompson, Vito Trigo, Clay von Carlowitz, Serena Chloe Gardner, Laurence R. Harvey, Dan Palmer, David Curtis

Synopsis:

A young man becomes manipulated by his imaginary friend to exact revenge on his tormenting co-workers.

Lifetime horror Liam Regan makes his directorial debut with the bloody and bonkers Banjo. A movie that kicks off with a couple having sex before the busty female of the duo pours a condom of semen all over her protesting partner. And it just gets bigger from there.

Working as though Troma made Drop Dead Fred, Banjo sees bullied office worker Peltzer (James Hamer-Morton) summon back his invisible friend from his childhood, Ronnie (Damien Morter, who was also the film’s Dp) to help him take care of his nasty co-workers (including Stalled‘s Dan Palmer and Return to Nuke ‘Em High‘s Clay Von Carolowitz). And,

The Guest Review [Sundance 2014]

Exploitation movies can be a hell of a lot of fun to watch. From the outputs of B-movie maestro Roger Corman (a man who’s career has now spanned over 60 years) through to the glorious schlock of Troma films with titles like Surf Nazis Must Die and Cannibal! The Musical, the sub-genre can make for some ludicrously trashy entertainment. Among others, exploitation film has provided initial career platforms for everyone from Martin Scorsese to Nicolas Winding Refn and it’s a tradition that runs deep through the history of modern cinema.

As the new-crowned kings of independent horror, director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett (You’re Next, V/H/S) have been putting together masterful pastiches for some time now and they seem like the perfect pairing to pay homage to this wonderful legacy of B-movie wiffle. With self-referential humour in buckets and an inspired performance from Dan Stevens,

10 Cult Horror Films With Memorable Titles

Italian and Japanese films are definitely the world leaders in the memorable movie title stakes. However, there have been some interesting little titles from American and UK cinema.

An interesting title does not necessarily mean a good film. A lot of the films on my list are in fact barely tolerable and their title is the only good thing about them. However, I am continuing in my usual vein to present cult movies to anyone who views my writing. In fact, I feel it is my duty to provoke debate and awareness about low brow, low budget, cult cinema in a world surrounded by anodyne Hollywood mulch.

Some of these films may be trash – but like a dog returning to its vomit, I feel compelled to review them. I must be the world’s biggest masochist. But I love it!

The 15 Most Violent Movie Titles of All Time

There may be a slight possibility that standards for movie titles have become more lenient over the years, since we can't really fathom an action movie like this week's "Bullet to the Head" coming out in 1954 with a title like that. No sir.

The Sylvester Stallone vehicle does stick in your head for some reason, so we thought we'd dig in and find the most gruesome, lurid and downright threatening movie titles ever conceived. Remember, the criteria here ain't the violent content of the film itself, just its nastified handle.

15. '8 Million Ways to Die' (1986)

The unlikely combination of star Jeff Bridges, screenwriter Oliver Stone and director Hal Ashby ("Harold and Maude") came up with this neo-noir concoction, which failed to ignite at the box office and ultimately served as Ashby's swan song. The film itself has a pulpy, sub-"Miami Vice" plot about an alcoholic ex-detective drawn into a

Godzilla Characters To Get Wrinkly In Latest Rewrite

In an unprecedented reason for a rewrite, Warner Bros. has asked for the characters in Gareth Edwards’ upcoming Godzilla project to be made older. The script which was penned by David Callahan, David S. Goyer and Max Borenstein will be rewritten by Drew Pearce – Warner Bros’ wunderkind writer whose work includes the imminent Iron Man 3, Sherlock Holmes 3 and Surf Nazis Must Die 3 (all true except for the last one, but you never know). He’s to deliver the script in four weeks, prior to the start of casting.

Back in July a teaser reel was shown at Comic-Con, which according to spectators was set in the aftermath of a great battle with indications of the romping Godzilla proving loyal to its Japanese roots. We now know the script is not completed, which means that the initial reel could have just been a blueprint mock-up of what Edwards is

Guardians Of The Galaxy close to getting a director

  • TheMovieBit
The only movie not to be a sequel in Marvel Studio's 'Phase 2', Guardians Of The Galaxy is close to getting a director, with Marvel executives in talks with James Gunn, the man behind Super and Slither, to take the reins of the team of intergalactic heroes. He does seems like an odd choice, his previous movies not fitting in with what Marvel has put out (though he did write the first Scooby Doo movie), and I find it hilarious that Disney will release a movie by a man who made his name working with the infamous Troma Studios, who count The Toxic Avenger and Surf Nazis Must Die among their many releases. But the studio has made some odd choices with directors in the past. Kennath Branagh threw many people for a loop when he was announced on Thor, and Welcome To Collinswood directors Anthony and Joe Russo are

Combat Shock:

‘Nam, a green jungle hell. A terrifying place of death, violence and bloody war where seeing your buddies die in front of you is a daily event and getting your seed corrupted by Agent Orange is an occupational hazard. Poor Ricky came home with a messed up head and scrambled DNA, now he has a mutated baby, a nagging wife and a grim collection of junkie friends to deal with. In the dilapidated tenements of Staten Island, life is harsh and sanity is transitory at best.

Troma Review - Surf Nazis Must Die (1987)

Surf Nazis Must Die, 1987.

Directed by Peter George.

Starring Gail Neely, Barry Brenner, Robert Harden and Tom Demenkoff.

Synopsis:

When the California coast is ravaged by a massive earthquake, the beaches are left in a state of anarchy, allowing a gang of fascist water rats known as the Surf Nazis to seize control.

The last movie on our Troma list for today is one which has a title that precedes its reputation. As a fan of ‘so bad they’re good’ movies, just hearing the name Surf Nazis Must Die makes you say, ‘Oh I want to see that!’

When I was first getting into filmmaking, one of the first things I learnt that if you have a great title people will want to see it. Even if your film is the lowest of the low level amateur filmmaking, your title can sell the movie to anyone. Sadly, the same

DVD Review: Surf Nazis Must Die

Surf Nazis Must Die

Stars: Gail Neely, Robert Harden, Barry Brenner, Dawn Wildsmith, Michael Sonye, Joel Hile, Tom Shell, Gene Mitchell | Written by Peter George, Jon Ayre | Directed by Peter George

Surf Nazis Must Die, it’s a catchy title don’t you think? Well it caught Troma’s eye when they agreed to release it into the world. In some people’s eyes of course it will be quite a controversial subject, it’s quite interesting of course that the Nazi element is not so much racism and anti-Semitism but the oppression of a different group of society, that being the surfers themselves. There is an element of racism in there, but it’s not a major theme in the story.

California’s coastline has been destroyed by a huge earthquake and is left in a post-apocalyptic state, it becomes a lawless land where the surfer controls the beach,

Special Features - A Brief History of Troma Entertainment

Luke Owen presents a brief history of the cult production and distribution company Troma Entertainment...

It’s a name that is synonymous among B-Movie horror fans with movies that more often than not fall into the “so bad they’re good” category. Since their inception in 1974, Troma Entertainment’s surreal look at cinema has led them to distribute 97 movies with only a handful actually being made by 'The House That Toxie Built'. Tomorrow, Arrow Films are re-releasing 3 of Troma’s back catalogue: Combat Shock, Class of Nuke ‘Em High and Surf Nazis Must Die on DVD and Blu-ray. So I thought it was about time I would take a look back at what Troma is all about.

Founded in 1974 by filmmakers Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz, Troma Entertainment started out life with the low budget sex comedies Squeeze Play!, Waitress!, Stuck on You! (which Kaufman states is his favourite) and The First Turn On!

Troma Celebrates 40 Years of Boobs, Blood, and Biohazards with Free Streaming Movies

Lloyd Kaufman is the Rodney Dangerfield of low-budget, B-level horror movies. He gets no respect. Even Roger Corman, who is notorious for cranking out genre films for profit since the 1950s, has respect of his Hollywood peers. But in Corman’s shadow is Kaufman’s exploitation studio Troma, which has been generating marginal and low-quality entertainment for years…almost 40 years, to be exact. Troma began in 1974 as a joint venture between Kaufman and his buddy from Yale, Michael Hertz. Over the years, the studio has pulled their own fair share of Cormans by featuring would-be stars in their earliest roles, including Kevin Costner in Sizzle Beach U.S.A., Billy Bob Thornton in Chopper Chicks in Zombietown, and the comedy team of Trey Parker and Matt Stone with Cannibal: The Musical. In 1985, Troma broke out with their tongue-in-cheek success The Toxic Avenger, a low-budget hit that spawned three sequels and gave Troma its poster boy for its

Mark Kermode's DVD round-up

Coriolanus; W.E.; Iron Sky; Michael; Juan of the Dead

Despite the universal saleability of all things Shakespeare, there's a good reason why film-makers have previously steered clear of his later historical tragedy about legendary Roman leader Caius Martius Coriolanus. Famously featuring one of the Bard's most opaque antiheroes (a role that has variously challenged the skills of Olivier, Burton, Hopkins and even Christopher Walken), it's the kind of play that is frequently accused of engaging neither sympathy nor emotion.

Hats off, then, to first-time director Ralph Fiennes, whose Coriolanus (2011, Lionsgate, 15) relocates the action to a latterday war zone, garlanding the Shakespearean dialogue with contemporary trappings (tanks, handguns, rolling news broadcasts) in the manner of Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet or Richard Loncraine's Richard III.

Shot in Serbia and laced with images that echo TV coverage of all too recent conflicts, this beautifully streamlined adaptation cuts right to the heart

Hammer Reborn & The Spirit of British Film

For the second time in as many articles, I am going to talk about The Woman in Black. The latest offering from Hammer and Eden Lake director James Watkins has continued to perform well on both sides of the Atlantic, and, while it’s still only March, is already shaping up to be one of my favourite films of 2012.

I’ve talked before about the resurgence of old-fashioned ghost stories, of which The Woman in Black is the most recent example. The most important aspect this time round is the phrase: “the latest offering from Hammer”. Having lain dormant since the late-1970s, the brand which made stars of Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee (amongst others) has risen from the grave and seems here to stay. Having tested the water in the past couple of years, as the UK distributor for Let Me In and the backer of the modest cult hit Wake Wood,

Mark Kermode's DVD round-up

Submarine; Limitless; Super; Hobo with a Shotgun; The Silent House

Having achieved cult status via such TV shows as Garth Marenghi's Darkplace and The It Crowd, writer/director Richard Ayoade scores a deadpan hit with his feature debut, Submarine (2010, Optimum, 15), an awkward black comedy about the traumas of coming of age that feels like Gregory's Girl's twisted sister.

Craig Roberts stars as Oliver Tate, the nasally narrating self-absorbed teenager who imagines his life as a movie packed with tracking zooms, helicopter shots and elaborately choreographed slo-mo, but also featuring the kind of "transcendent moments" that warrant the use of critical phrases such as "a monumental achievement" – apparently.

Having met his match in Jordana Bevan (Yasmin Paige), whose dark countenance is offset by the red coat she wears like the diminutive murderer of Don't Look Now, Oliver embarks on a relationship based on existential nihilism and casual pyromania. Yet his
