The Dusty VHS Corner: 90s Straight-to-Video Action Spectaculars

Tom Jolliffe kicks off a new feature at Flickering Myth entitled The Dusty VHS Corner; first up is a trio of 90s straight-to-video action spectaculars in Grid Runners, Martial Law and Back to Even…

Remember when films were on things called video cassettes? Remember when they were sold in rental shops, full to the brim with those big bulky covers (usually with great artwork on the front)? The joy of browsing, picking a gem you’d never heard of because IMDb wasn’t around to tell you if a film was bobbins or not. Good times…good times.

With those glorious days long gone, now lost in the streaming generation and having also gone through the DVD generation (which was never quite as brilliant a rental perusing experience for some reason), I will be looking fondly back to the video era of the 80s and 90s, up to the turn

The Unbelievable Number of Tesla Films to Be Made

While we are talking about fiction, science fiction and non-fiction stories of little importance, many filmmakers are currently exploding with ideas to make films based on Nikola Tesla’s life and work. It all happens like a thunder, explosion from the heavens, with studios and independent filmmakers alike. They are actively seeking investors, crowd funding and sponsorships, partnerships with studios, while simultaneously doing the hard work of script writing, research, and casting.

It seems like the world is awakening, an angelus force is impacting our consciousness. Up to this point, history has been filtered in many ways, and most people believed the media and the government. But with such an activist-like attitude, that is going to change. As people, we are starting to think Tesla’s way, bringing awareness of using free energy, caring about the environment and looking at the future with his eyes. In this article, I will

Lionsgate is putting out a horror movie. What's so special about that, right? They're always pumping them out. However, the title of their next flick happens to be The Appearing, and that's how we've justified the headline. Clever, eh? What? No? Screw you!

The Bridge, Ep. 1.06: “ID” provides a few surprises, some tablesetting, and great guests

The Bridge, Season 1, Episode 6, “ID”

Written by Dario Scardapane

Directed by Alex Zakrzewski

Airs Wednesdays at 10pm (Est) on FX

This week, on The Bridge: Bobby Cobb gets a name (and a few ideas), Sonya gets a backstory, and Gina gets the eyes right

The Bridge reached an intense season best last week with “The Beast”, so it’s not surprising that this week’s installment is somewhat of a tablesetter, reacting to the events just prior and paving the way for several new arcs that promise character and plot points aplenty. We spend plenty of time at the Peter Meadows crime scene, down to the apparently obligatory reminder of his Colombian necktie (sorry guys, Hannibal did it better), and afterward Sonya unsurprisingly proves a less than ideal interviewer of trauma victims as she questions Gina about her father’s murderer. Serious question- why does anyone, including her, think

See Don Swayze and Luke Barnett in First Clip from Iniquitous

Fresh for San Diego Comic-Con, we've got the first clip from the short film Iniquitous, featuring Don Swayze and Luke Barnett. Yep, Don Swayze… you know who's younger brother stars in Iniquitous, a truly twisted tale.

Swayze's co-star, Luke Barnett, will be at Comic-Con from Thursday through Sunday, July 18-21, promoting both The Scribbler and his newest film, Static, which was just released in the UK on July 15.

Iniquitous was written and directed by John Thaddeus and produced by Ravenous Films.

‘Grindhouse 7: Beach Babes From Beyond’ Review

Stars: Joe Estevez, Don Swayze, Joey Travolta, Burt Ward, Jackie Stallone, Linnea Quigley, Sarah Bellomo, Tamara Landry, Nicole Posey, Michael Todd Davis, Ken Steadman, Michael Roddy, Albert Andrukaitis | Written by Alexander Sachs | Directed by Ellen Cabot

Directed by Ellen Cabot (aka David DeCoteau), Beach Babes From Beyond is technically not a Full Moon film, as it is in fact one of the earliest releases from Charles Band’s 1993 created Torchlight label which specialised in genre-tinged softcore porn comedies. The imprint only ever produced three films between 1993 and 1998, including this film, its direct sequel, and a softcore vampire flick entitled Blonde Heaven, all of which were directed by David DeCoteau under his “Ellen Cabot” pseudonym.

Ridiculous blend of 60s beach party flick and direct to video porn (which is more evident in the deleted scenes), Beach Babes From Beyond suffers from a complete lack of plot and inordinately long musical numbers features extras dancing,

Craig T. Nelson to Guest Star on Hawaii Five-0

  • TVfanatic
It may still be on hiatus, but Hawaii Five-0 Season 3 is lining up some seriously impressive guest stars for its return.

At the top of the list of Craig T. Nelson, who will come on board a May Sweeps episode as a former CIA agent suspected of some seriously shady dealings, according to Zap2It.

Look for Nelson's character to possess intel on a number of past and present operatives, which will cause major problems for Doris McGarrett.

Among other high profile, incoming guest stars who will appear in another spring episode:

Henry Rollings (Sons of Anarchy) will portray a child abductor. Mare Winningham will portray his wife. Don Swayze will play a suspect in this abduction case.

Hawaii Five-0 finally returns with new episodes on April 15.

'Hawaii Five-0': 'Parenthood's' Craig T. Nelson stirs up trouble on the island

"Hawaii Five-0" has lined up a bunch of guest stars for May sweeps -- including one that could make some trouble for the McGarrett family.

Zap2it has learned excusively that "Parenthood" star Craig T. Nelson will play a "power-hungry" former CIA agent in an episode of the CBS series set to air in May. Separately, Oscar nominee Mare Winningham, Henry Rollins and Don Swayze will appear in an episode centered on a string of child abductions.

Nelson's character is suspected of some shady dealings while with the CIA, and he has information that could harm both current and former operatives with the agency. That does not sound like good news for Doris McGarrett (Christine Lahti), who still hasn't really come clean about her past with the agency.

In the other episode, Rollins ("Sons of Anarchy") will play a "vicious" man who has abducted several children and holds them in his home.
