Slaves Of Hollywood - A 1993 film about Hollywood Assistants ripped from today's headlines, sort of.

by Terry Keefe

Back in the mid-90s, Michael Wechsler, Brian Grossman, and myself collaborated with a bunch of great young actors and crew for this micro-budgeted feature film about tortured Hollywood assistants. Alex Simon makes a few cameos also!

As we were going for "theater of the absurd," and (mostly) dark laughs, it isn't the perfect companion to today's headlines, but some of the milieu will be familiar. The stories about Harvey Weinstein abounded even then. In total honesty, I had great bosses in Hollywood, and the film is all based on stories we had heard about Other bosses. The ones you didn't want to work for. There but for the grace of God went we. But Meryl Streep did later call Harvey "God," so it all gets confusing.

We shot this two years before Kevin Spacey tore up the screen as the abusive producer in Swimming With Sharks,

What to Watch: Feb. 18-24, 2014

What an amazing week for TV fans. As if you didn’t have enough stacking to do with the new, brilliant season of “House of Cards” on Netflix, there are four other full seasons in this week’s What to Watch that you really should watch front to back. And then there’s the still-amazing “Darkman,” a cult classic that perfectly captures Sam Raimi’s skill at controlled chaos. Finally, we have two ’80s horror flicks in one set in “Bad Dreams” and “Visiting Hours.” Check ‘em all out (Ok, you can skip the genre stinkers).

Movie Review: 'Don’t Answer the Phone!' (1980)

By Chris Wright, MoreHorror.com

“Don’t Answer the Phone!” (1980) Film Review

Directed By: Robert Hammer

Written By: Michael D. Castle & Robert Hammer

Starring: James Westmoreland (Lieutenant Chris McCabe), Ben Frank (Sergeant Hatcher), Flo Lawrence (Doctor Lindsay Gale), Nicholas Worth (Kirk Smith),

I honestly didn’t know what to expect by watching another movie that has the infamous “Don’t [do this]” in the title. I was pleasantly surprised; despite its imperfections, it was better than I thought it was going to be. I tend to be a lover of these type movies so I can certainly understand the dislike. The movie was first released on VHS by Media Home Entertainment and released several years ago on DVD. Don't Answer the Phone! reminded me of another movie that came out the same year: “Maniac.”

The plot revolves around an ex-Vietnam vet and current photographer who goes around strangling women. The killer Kirk

Image Entertainment

Review by J Astro

Two cinematic blasts from Hollywood’s not-too-distant Cold War-inspired past are re-packaged together as a post-apocalyptic tag team on this two-for-one offering, which was made available by the folks at Image Entertainment just a few weeks ago (release date December 13, 2011). Each feature on this single-sided disc comes with its own title screen, scene selections, and a theatrical trailer. The DVD itself plays a few other vintage trailers (C.H.U.D., anyone?) before the main film selection menu. Otherwise, it’s all a pretty bare bones affair. But with mega-blockbusters like these,
