Star Trek: the 10 worst Starfleet Admirals

Juliette Harrisson Jul 5, 2017

Juliette counts down ten terrible Admirals that Starfleet must have been mad to promote...

You would think Starfleet would be very careful about who they promote to Admiral, running numerous psychological tests, only promoting those with a solid track record as Captain and keeping a close eye on them for signs of inappropriate behaviour. But no. Based on the evidence of this sorry lot, Starfleet generally just promote whoever happens to be in the vicinity and looks good in the fancy uniform.

As will become clear below, this is particularly true of Admirals sent to work with the Federation’s flagship, the USS Enterprise. During the 24th century, the appearance of an Admiral on the bridge of the Enterprise is generally a solid indicator of upcoming shenanigans. We can only presume Starfleet

April Fool’S Day at 30: The Cast Discusses Working with Fred Walton, Each Other and Moments We Missed

A film that has been a longtime favorite of mine ever since I discovered it on VHS as a kid decades (and decades) ago, April Fool’s Day recently celebrated its 30th anniversary. To mark the occasion, I was fortunate enough to round up several cast members, as well as director Fred Walton, to chat about the horror comedy that dared to turn the slasher subgenre on its head back in 1986.

April Fool’s Day brought together a talented crew of young actors, including Deborah Foreman, Amy Steel, Tom Wilson, Deborah Goodrich, Ken Olandt, Clayton Rohner, Leah Pinsent, Jay Baker, and Griffin O’Neal, who all gathered on Victoria Island in British Columbia to create a mystery-fueled horror comedy that’s hugely underrated and was certainly ahead of its time.

For many of the cast, the twists and turns of April Fool’s Day were part of the film’s

April Fool’S Day at 30: The Cast Reflects on the Cult Classic Horror Comedy

Creating a slasher movie in 1986 wasn’t a monumental feat, as the horror genre had seen its fair share of cinematic killers over the years, but it was a culmination of many elements that made April Fool’s Day one of the best of its era. With a focused and experienced director at the helm, a clever script filled with laughs and unexpected thrills, and an affable ensemble of actors who were infectiously likeable and endlessly talented, April Fool’s Day is an underappreciated gem and is truly unlike any other genre film of its, or any, time.

Written by Danilo Bach and directed by Fred Walton, April Fool’s Day follows a group of college students—Kit (Amy Steel), Rob (Ken Olandt), Nikki (Deborah Goodrich), Chaz (Clayton Rohner), Arch (Tom Wilson), Harvey (Jay Baker), Skip (Griffin O’Neal), and Nan (Leah Pinsent)—who head out to their pal Muffy

Scream Factory Unleashes April Terror With #Horror and Destroyer & Edge Of Sanity Blu’s!!

The gang at Scream Factory has quite the roster up their sleeves, and three of the releases they have planned sound quite interesting. On April 5th, Sf, in conjunction with IFC Midnight, will release the cyber-bullying gone wrong tale #Horror, featuring Chloë Sevigny and Timothy Hutton. Personally, I get excited for the Sf/IFC joint releases, with previous films like Dark Summer and The Babadook being some of my recent favorite genre films.

In #Horror, Chloë Sevigny (American Horror Story, American Psycho) leads an ensemble cast that includes Timothy Hutton (American Crime, The Dark Half) and Natasha Lyonne and Taryn Manning of Orange is the New Black. This shocking chiller is written and directed by actress and designer Tara Subkoff (The Cell, The Last Days of Disco).

Bluray Review: I, Madman

Scream Factory is showing some Jenny Wright love with their recently released Bluray of Tibor Takacs’ 1989 slasher I, Madman, a film that combines both the fantastical and the realistic approaches and was, well..screaming for an HD release (pun intended). Giving genre fans something that they might have accidentally overlooked upon its theatrical release, I, Madman not only offers a brand new HD transfer, but a group of impressive special features that makes this one a release to check out.

The Film:

Written by A Nightmare On Elm Street 2: Freddy’S Revenge writer David Chaskin, I Madman is an interesting genre tale, one that walks confidently in the middle of reality and supernatural, with its story of Virgina (Near Dark‘s Jenny Wright), a bookstore clerk obsessed with an author after coming across his first book.

I, Madman | Blu-ray Review

Scream Factory brings late 80’s horror thriller I, Madman to Blu-ray, one of two notable cult classics from Hungarian/Canadian director Tibor Tabaks. Beginning in Canadian television, Tabaks reached notoriety with his 1987 sophomore feature, The Gate, a bizarre creature feature which terrorized children with its forced perspective monsters and introduced the world to child actor Stephen Dorff. He’d follow that up with this pulpy adaptation of a screenplay by David Chaskin (A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge). A gothic murder mystery plays out in the eternally uneasy streets of a hazy, 1989 Hollywood in this simple yet strange forgotten oddity.

Bookworm Virginia (Jenny Wright) works in a used bookstore, often finding herself attracted to lurid, violent fiction. After an influx of random materials coming in from an estate sale, she finds a 1950s set thriller, Much of Madness, More of Sin, a visceral novel about a mad

Stars: Dieter Laser, Laurence R. Harvey, Bree Olsen, Eric Roberts, Robert Lasardo, Tommy ‘Tiny’ Lister, Clayton Rohner, Jay Tavare, Michael Flores, Carlos Ramirez, James Darnell, Akihiro Kitamura, Chris Clanton | Written and Directed by Tom Six

The wait is finally over ladies and gentlemen! One of this years most anticipated horror films is finally here! Yep, Tom Six (I Love Dries) has finally unleashed The Human Centipede 3: Final Sequence upon the world. When I watched parts 1 & 2 upon initial release, I was rather underwhelmed, but upon revisiting the films prior to the third and final chapter in the trilogy, I found myself enjoying the films for what they are. I won’t go in to detail because if you’re reading this review, you have already seen them. Needless to say, the films were brutal with an original concept that made Dieter Laser (John Gleuckstadt) amd Laurence R. Harvey (The Editor) household names and horror icons.

Film Review: ‘The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence)’

Film Review: ‘The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence)’
Rarely has the word “final” been so welcome in a title as it is in “The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence).” Tom Six’s latest, largest-scaled and most lamentable entry yet in the gross-out horror series manages to be completely obnoxious even before the gross stuff kicks in. Of course, that will only heighten its curiosity value among the usual seekers of lowest-level genre excess. Pic opens May 22 in New York and Los Angeles, though as with its predecessors, primary fan access will be through simultaneous release to VOD.

The prior chapters’ leads return in new roles here as warden and accountant of the George H.W. Bush State Prison, a (presumably Texan) hellhole experiencing constant staff turnover and inmate violence. Only exacerbating those woes is cartoonishly maniacal Bill Boss (the original “Centipede’s” mad doctor, Dieter Laser), a chrome-domed German of a type that would seem over-the-top even in 1970s Italian Nazisploitation cinema.
