At first glance, the title may make this Australian production sound like something you'd watch on Valentine's Day with a heart shaped box of choccies on your lap, but according to our classification overlords the upcoming DVD will contain "strong violence" people. Strong violence! On March 11, 2015 Eagle Entertainment will release Love of My Life, a psychological thriller that sees an unfortunate individual held captive by a deranged surgeon and forced to make a pretty tough...

Colin & Cameron Cairnes, the writers and directors behind 2013's 100 Bloody Acres, are returning to the horror genre for their second feature, Scare Campaign, which begins production in Victoria this week. Featuring Meegan Warner, Olivia DeJonge, and Ian Meadows along with Sigrid Thornton, Wolf Creek's Cassandra McGrath... [READ MORE]
The cover of Scream Factory's Blu-Ray disc for The Beast Within proudly proclaims: "This motion picture contains scenes of graphic violence and violent horror. Beware!" That's certainly one way to sell this shlocky early 80's effort from Aussie director Philippe Mora. Another, more honest, way would be to boast "this motion picture contains a few bloody moments...

Retired DEA agent and single father Phil Broker (Jason Statham) has started life anew, choosing to settle in a sleepy Louisiana bayou town with his young daughter, Maddy (Izabela Vidovic), after busting a methproducing bikie gang by the name of The Outcasts. The gang's head honcho, Danny T (Chuck Zito), lost his son in a hail of police bullets... [READ MORE]
Most of the world was deprived a HD version of the first two Missing in Action films when MGM got all dicky and licensed them exclusively to the States' version of Big W. Those lucky enough to procure copies were probably disappointed that Braddock: Missing in Action III didn't materialise as well. Luckily Ascot Elite, who also helped us out with the Ninja films...

It's difficult to recommend a movie like Enemy to just anyone – it's most assuredly not something crowd-pleasing like Edge of Tomorrow. You suggest that someone watches a film like Enemy, and it's probably a better than 50/50 chance they end up absolutely despising it, thereby forever tainting your movie-picking prowess in their eyes from that point on...

Queensland's Gallery of Modern Art has kicked-off the new year with another impressive retrospective film program that will have banana benders salivating and the rest of us wishing we lived closer to the sunshine state. Dubbed 'Myths and Legends', the program - which will screen over 50 films from January 9 through to March 8... [READ MORE]
In principle I am a fan of exploitation/horror throwbacks that try to capture the feel of the classics of yesteryear. I prefer the more tongue in cheek offerings, but I'm okay with the idea of filmmakers playing it straight with this sort of thing… except in their emulations they should not, under any circumstances, recreate the terrible, terrible padding...

Colin Eggleston's Aussie eco-thriller Long Weekend was one of the first movies we ever reviewed when this site was launched back in 2002, and at the time the movie was only available on VHS. A few years later it received a fancy DVD upgrade (Review), but now that shiny Umbrella Entertainment release - not to mention the mangy old ex-rental tape... [READ MORE]
I first encountered The Toxic Avenger when I was about six. My younger cousin and I went to a video store and I was allured by the iconic cover art. My aunt spent a while debating whether the movie would be suitable for two youngsters, uncertain if its being unrated was because it was a cheap kid's movie that nobody submitted to the MPAA...

Question: If a movie makes no sense can it still be good? Answer: Of course it can, and this is the case with Lucio Fulci's gory, splatter filled zombie flick City of the Living Dead. In a very and unnecessarily over complicated story line: a psychic Mary (Catriona MacColl) in New York dies whilst receiving a vision of a priest hanging himself in the town of Dunwich... [READ MORE]
2013 was a special year for me. It was the year my hero, Doctor Who, celebrated his 50th anniversary, not of being on TV though, as the show had several suspensions and cancellations, but certainly of it's existence in the pop culture lexicon. Doctor Who is a show about a time travelling, face changing scoundrel who takes it upon himself... [READ MORE]
After months of successful film festival screenings both here and overseas, Director Travis Bain's Yowie powered creature feature Throwback will be available to buy on DVD in Australia from February 18 thanks to Monster Pictures. Throwback follows two treasure hunters, a female park ranger and an unhinged ex-cop as they encounter a Yowie... [READ MORE]
The idea of a game where contestants battle to the death is nothing new. There's The Condemned, Knockout, The Running Man, Battle Royale…the list is practically endless. The concept's even gone totally mainstream in the last decade with The Hunger Games, so now even tweens can enjoy the horrific slaughter. The Hunt... [READ MORE]
Has Uwe Boll, the man responsible for such gems as Postal, Bloodrayne, and… errr... House of the Dead, gone all serious on us and produced an insightful analysis of the global financial crisis? With artwork that sees Dominic Purcell armed to the teeth as a building explodes behind him, we're thinking no, probably not... [READ MORE]
