An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn Review – Sundance London 2018

  • HeyUGuys
Guessing what The Greasy Strangler director Jim Hosking had in mind for a follow-up was always a bit of a poser. Whether he would slip into A Straight Story style deviation or lounge in that oily (dis)comfort zone he fashioned so well with Tgs, was anybody’s guess. As it turns out, An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn seems like a room tone re-hash in terms of kitsch/chic bravura and character types. At times it’s so similar to his bombastic debut, Aewbll could be seen as a waddling appendage. The same kind of gluey, translucent pink opening credits lights up the cinema like a disco brothel bingo hall while Andrew Hung’s synth stabs flower into robot fart fusing grooves.

The story starts in a crusty back street similar to where Big Ron and son repeatedly barked “bullshit artist!” at each other. Aewbll then introduces us to the wonky,

The Human Centipede director returning with “vile and inhumane” new film The Onania Club

After disgusting audiences worldwide with The Human Centipede trilogy, director Tom Six has revealed to IndieWire that he is currently working on his next project, The Onania Club. Check out the teaser poster here…

Save for the fact that it’s set in Hollywood, plot details are being kept tightly under wraps but given that “onania” is an archaic term for masturbation and the film’s tagline of “come and see, see and come”, it’s pretty safe to assume this isn’t going to be family viewing. In fact, Six promises that the film “will be one of the most vile, inhumane movie experiences of all time”.

Six also went on to state that the film features “mostly strong female characters” and will “definitely pass the Bechdel test with flying colors.” Featuring in the cast are Jessica Morris, Darcy DeMoss, Deborah Twiss, Karen Strassman, and Flo Lawrence.

Vile and inhumane: the director of The Human Centipede is back

With Tom Six announcing his latest piece of schlock-bait, The Onania Club, how best to ignore a man whose only remaining raison d’etre is provocation?

Great news for people who like watching three minutes of a film in the middle of the night on SyFy, then feeling like you’ve seen enough of it to get the gist, then switching off and going to bed – Tom Six has got a new movie coming out.

That’s right. You saw The Human Centipede, and were secretly disappointed that it wasn’t as interesting as the premise suggested. You saw The Human Centipede 2, then spent a full month wondering why you bothered. You ignored The Human Centipede 3, because you have a vague recollection of someone once telling you not to feed the trolls. And now it’s time for you to actively run away from The Onania Club.

Tom Six Promises That The Onania Club Will Be A Vile, Inhumane Experience

Now that Dutch filmmaker Tom Six is all done with his name-making Human Centipede trilogy, it looks like the controversial writer-director is doubling down on his scandalous reputation with The Onania Club, a film that Six promises will be “one of the most vile, inhumane movie experiences of all time.” Whether you regard him as an artful provocateur or a purveyor of trash, it appears that with this new effort, he has little interest in changing your mind either way.

Between its crude title (‘onania’ is an archaic term for masturbation), the altered Venus symbol on its poster and its suggestive tagline, it’s a safe bet that the flick will be taking a sex-and gender-based angle with its horrors. Six has even claimed that it features “mostly strong female characters” and will “definitely pass the Bechdel test with flying colors.”

So, rest assured that amidst the depraved spectacle, there

‘Human Centipede’ Director Tom Six Returns This Fall With ‘The Onania Club,’ One of the ‘Most Vile Movie Experiences of All Time’

‘Human Centipede’ Director Tom Six Returns This Fall With ‘The Onania Club,’ One of the ‘Most Vile Movie Experiences of All Time’
Three years after finishing “The Human Centipede” trilogy, writer-director Tom Six is officially set to return to theaters with his latest horror shocker “The Onania Club.” The filmmaker is keeping plot specifics about the movie under wraps for now, but he is promising the physiological thriller features “mostly strong female characters” and will “definitely pass the Bechdel test with flying colors.” The cast includes Jessica Morris, Darcy DeMoss, Deborah Twiss, Karen Strassman, and Flo Lawrence.

While plot details are remaining a mystery, “The Onania Club” is set in Hollywood, California. The exclusive release promises the movie “will be one of the most vile, inhumane movie experiences of all time.” Anyone who has seen “The Human Centipede” films know Six can more than deliver on this promise. The movie is produced by Tom Six and Ilona Six through their Six Entertainment Company production banner.

Tom Six Teases Graphic Novel Adaptation Of The Human Centipede

While not exactly in the tippy-top-tier of the “torture porn” sub-genre, Tom Six’s 2009 film The Human Centipede made quite a stir upon release. It centered around a sadistic German doctor who abducts three tourists and links them surgically, anus to mouth, to form exactly what the title suggests. It definitely found success, too, if you can call it that, earning itself a decent sized fanbase which asked for a few sequels.

Much in the same way that we can’t help but stare at a gruesome car crash, funding for future Human Centipede films continuously poured in and Six was able to make two follow-ups to the original, both of which were nowhere near as successful as the first one but again, had their supporters. Now, seemingly undeterred by the diminishing box office returns of the last few outings, the director is intent on carrying on with the franchise.

Uwe Boll Isn’t the Worst Director of the 21st Century, Says Metacritic, but He’s Close — See the Top 20

Uwe Boll Isn’t the Worst Director of the 21st Century, Says Metacritic, but He’s Close — See the Top 20
After naming Alfonso Cuarón the best director of the 21st century, Metacritic has gone ahead and averaged out filmmakers’ Metascores to name the worst directors since 2000. As with the first list, filmmakers must have made at least four movies in the last 17 years to be eligible — meaning that Tom Six (“The Human Centipede”) and Dinesh D’Souza (“Hillary’s America”) don’t qualify despite the fact that they’re far from critical darlings.

Uwe Boll, known for his oft-panned video-game adaptations, comes in at #2; the dubious honor of defeating him goes to Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, whose average Metascore of 14.5 comes from directing spoofs like “Meet the Spartans,” “Date Movie,” and “Epic Movie.”

The same can be said for Nicolas Pesce’s must-see The Eyes of My Mother, a hauntingly beautiful and shockingly film that our own Fred Topel raved about, calling […]

Banned and Brutal: 14 Beyond-Controversial Horror Movies

Banned and Brutal: 14 Beyond-Controversial Horror Movies
There are horror movies that will give you nightmares, and cause you to fear showers and shallow waters for decades. There are some that get deep under your skin – often times because they've literally flayed or burrowed under their characters' skins – and others that will make you see everyday items (a bowl of pea soup, a hockey mask, a videotape) in a horrifying new light. And then there are the ones that push so many social-taboo envelopes, strike so many collective raw nerves and tweak so many communal gag reflexes that they are a cut,

‘Cherry Tree’ DVD Review

Stars: Anna Walton, Naomi Battrick, Sam Hazeldine, Patrick Gibson, Minnie Phipps | Written by Brendan McCarthy | Directed by David Keating

Faith’s world is turned upside down when she finds out her father is dying. When the mysteriously alluring Sissy Young becomes her field hockey coach, Faith finds a compassionate spirit and much-needed mother figure. Little does she know that Sissy is the head of a centuries-old witches’ coven using the fruit of an ancient cherry tree in a secret ritual that restores life. And soon Sissy has enticed Faith into making a fateful bargain that is about to change everything…

Cherry Tree feels very much like a jumble of ideas, as if someone sat down and thought about what they wanted to see in a horror film or what would make “interesting” visuals and then tried to string them together with the flimsiest of plots. And the visuals are definitely

Students Forced to Watch Human Centipede 2 in the Classroom?

Students Forced to Watch Human Centipede 2 in the Classroom?
Director Tom Six made a name for himself with 2011's bizarre cult classic The Human Centipede, which he followed up with 2012's The Human Centipede 2 and last year's The Human Centipede 3. The films weren't exactly box office hits, with all three grossing less than $350,000 combined at the domestic box office. But they certainly garnered their fair share of controversy, with a story following a bizarre doctor (Dieter Laser) and his disgusting, yet, supposedly "100% medically accurate" experiments. The second movie, The Human Centipede 2, is making headlines once again, four years after its release, as students in a Tennessee high school were forced to watch the movie in class.

While no details were given as to why the unnamed teacher made students watch this grotesque movie, superintendent Verna Ruffin confirmed to The Jackson Sun, via USA Today, that the film was shown to students at Jackson Central-Merry High School. An unnamed parent

Razzie Awards: 'Fifty Shades of Grey' and 'Fantastic Four' Tie for Worst Picture

Razzie Awards: 'Fifty Shades of Grey' and 'Fantastic Four' Tie for Worst Picture
All five films up for Worst Picture at this year's 36th Annual Razzie Awards are big budget/high profile productions that have no excuse for being among the year's "berry" worst. And 2015's acting contenders include popular stars like Johnny Depp, Channing Tatum, and Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, previous Oscar winners Gwyneth Paltrow, Eddie Redmayne and Julianne Moore, and such Razzie Repeat Offenders as Adam Sandler, Jennifer Lopez and Katherine Heigl. The winners were announced last night, with Fifty Shades of Grey and Fantastic Four tying for Worst Picture.

The choices for Worst Picture include Fifty Shades of Grey (2015's "Most Successful Bad Movie"), Fantastic Four (a nearly instant remake that flopped with both critics and movie-goers), Jupiter Ascending (the latest sci-fi fiasco from Andy Wachowski & Lana Wachowski), Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 (a box office hit despite its 95% negative rating at Rotten Tomatoes) and Adam Sandler's latest excuse for a movie,
