Blu-ray Review – Space Truckers (1996)

Space Truckers, 1996.

Directed by Stuart Gordon.

Starring Dennis Hopper, Tim Loane, Ian Beattie, Charles Dance, Shane Rimmer, Sandra Dickinson, George Wendt, Stephen Dorff, and Debi Mazar.

Synopsis:

A space trucker takes on a job to deliver a cargo to Earth, unaware that it is a consignment of killer robots.

Even back in the dark days of 1996 you would have thought that low-budget B-movie schlock like Space Truckers had been consigned to the VHS bargain bins of the previous decade. Yes, sci-fi movies that have the production values of Button Moon are made ironically these days, looking deliberately cheap and naff and usually broadcast on Syfy, but Stuart Gordon’s Space Truckers is the real deal, made with passion and heart and utilising its modest budget – the highest Gordon had worked with, it’s worth noting – to make the best use it could of the then-burgeoning CGI technology.

Masters Of Horror Rewatch: “Jenifer”

When Showtime announced their lineup for their Masters of Horror anthology series back in 2005, one thing became clear pretty quickly: the show was going to focus almost entirely on American masters of horror. With the exception of Takashi Miike’s “Imprint” in season 1 and Norio Tsuruta’s “Dream Cruise” in season 2, the only episodes directed by a non-American are the ones directed by the great Dario Argento, the Crown Prince of Italian horror. And for those of you keeping score of these Italian horror designations, Mario Bava is the Godfather, Lucio Fulci the Maestro, Bruno Mattei the Fool. Everyone has their role to play.

Season 1, Episode 4: “Jenifer”

Director: Dario Argento

Original Air Date: November 18th, 2005

Argento’s first Masters of Horror offering, called simply “Jenifer,” is another highlight of the series and arguably the best thing the director has made since Trauma in 1993. Based on a 1973 comic book short story by Bruce Jones,

Masters Of Horror Rewatch: “Dreams in the Witch House”

When last we left this Masters of Horror rewatch, I was lamenting the fact that a number of the episodes in the Showtime anthology series don’t feel like they really represent their namesake filmmakers accurately. The series premiere, “Incident On and Off a Mountain Road” is a great hour of television and one of my favorite episodes of the series while not really feeling like a Don Coscarelli film. Based on my memory of the show, I thought this was a sound thesis and one I would see proven out over the course of this rewatch. Then along comes “Dreams in the Witch House”—only the second episode of Masters of Horror —to blow my whole theory out of the water. This is a Stuart Gordon-directed episode that feels very much like a Stuart Gordon film.

Season 1, Episode 2: "Dreams in the Witch House"

Director: Stuart Gordon

Out Of Print: The New Beverly Cinema’S History

The title of Julia Marchese’s testimonial documentary on the history of Los Angeles’ the New Beverly Cinema, Out of Print, began, as her film did, as a way of suggesting the dark future which lay in store for the prospect of 35mm film distribution and exhibition in the early stages of this decade’s industry switch-over to digital projection. Marchese’s movie sprung from efforts to rally behind not only the viability of the film format in the face of the movie business’s growing infatuation with all things ones-and-zeroes, but also the viability of theaters like the New Beverly Cinema, the city’s longest-surviving repertory theater, which in 2013, around the time the film began production, saw the availability of 35mm prints, the bread-and-butter of the few independent revival houses across the country still in business, dwindling. These theaters were given a simple, expensive choice: cough up perhaps hundreds

5 Of The Most Iconic Adventure Movies Of All Time

There is no other type of movie like the ‘Adventure film’ that takes the viewer on an exciting quest that is often filled with danger, grand discoveries and action, that often has the capacity to delight many families everywhere.

Classics such as The Goonies, Back to the Future, The Lord of the Rings trilogy and many more are fondly remembered.

Unfortunately, it is difficult to recall the last time cinema delivered an iconic movie filled with adventure on the same scale as the aforementioned. The sequel to 1995’s Jumanji has just been theatrically released, but it is hard to look past the idea that it is designed to cash in on the success of a movie that was made 23 years earlier.

An Indiana Jones sequel has been confirmed, although after the critically panned Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, it is difficult to believe that the franchise can be given new strength to endure.

Vestron Video: ‘Wishmaster’ Blu-ray Review

Stars: Andrew Divoff, Tammy Lauren, Robert Englund, Ted Raimi, George “Buck” Flower, Reggie Bannister, Tony Todd, Kane Hodder, Chris Lemmon, Wendy Benson-Landes, Tony Crane, Jenny O’Hara, Ricco Ross, John Byner, Gretchen Palmer, Angus Scrimm | Written by Peter Atkins | Directed by Robert Kurtzman

Special makeup supremo Robert Kurtzman directs this 1997 homage to 1980s horror, and while its gross-out effects are impressive, the plot, characters and script leave much to be desired.

Wishmaster opens in 12th century Persia, and a royal party in chaos: people are mutating, skinning themselves, turning inside out, that sort of thing. It seems the king has made a deal with a Djinn, a mythical demon who will grant three wishes. On the third wish, a portal will open and the Djinn (plural) will be unleashed and take over the world of men. Or something. Thankfully, this Djinn is banished thanks to an opal made of blood.
