Certainly, all you need to know if nothing else is that Edge of Tomorrow = Groundhog Day + Saving Private Ryan + Starship Troopers. That, and you should see it. As far as I'm concerned, it's one of the most purely enjoyable blockbusters since Jurassic Park. And God knows, we don't get enough of these actually-really-great mega-budgeted Hollywood efforts...

In director Abel Ferrara's rape-revenge classic, a mute seamstress named Thana (Zoë Lund) is raped not once, but twice, causing her to snap and kill her (second) rapist. The man had been brandishing a .45 calibre pistol, so Thana hits the streets, luring out the rapists, muggers and scumbags Death Wish-style, in order to take them out with her newly-acquired firearm...

I don't think Escape Plan got a theatrical release in Australia. I'll be the first to admit that Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger have made some shitty movies, but there's no way that local audiences should be denied the opportunity to see them in action together on the big screen. This movie could've been the two of 'em playing chess for two hours... [READ MORE]
Better lock your door! Melbourne will be stalked by one of the horror genres most iconic stars next month when Robert Englund, the man beneath Freddy Krueger’s burned visage, joins the line-up of guests at Oz Comic-Con Melbourne. The con will be held at the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton on the 5th and 6th of July... [READ MORE]
My horror addiction doesn’t just stop at DVDs and Blu-rays (and a very small quantity of laserdisc and VHS). I also have a far-too-large collection of horror related toys, novels, board games, video games and comics. My favourite non-plastic disc collectables however are my books about horror films, especially those that take a specific aspect of horror cinema... [READ MORE]
William Friedkin, fresh off the enormous success of puke-spraying The Exorcist and his Oscar-winning The French Connection, decided to remake the classic The Wages of Fear as Sorcerer (sorry — I meant transplant the story to a new scenario, given Friedkin insists that Sorcerer is not a remake). Unfortunately for Friedkin and the cast and crew... [READ MORE]
The new Godzilla movie opens with Walt from Breaking Bad, evidently having survived cancer, working in Japan 15 years ago. There's a disaster that destroys the nuclear facility where he works, echoing the real life situation from a few years ago, and then he and his young son are forbidden to return. 15 years later and poor Walt's still trying to get back...

Directed by Brian De Palma (Carrie, Scarface, Dressed to Kill) and starring Kirk Douglas, John Cassavettes and Amy Irving, the cult horror The Fury is now available on DVD and Blu-Ray to rent or buy in Australia. The Blu-Ray is fully remastered and is packed with special features such as Blood on the Lens: An interview with cinematographer Richard H. Kline... [READ MORE]
1982 was a banner year for American films, and film fans no doubt remember it was a year that an esteemed writer/director took on a glossy remake of a classic black-and-white horror film, upping the special effects and gore quotient for a modern audience whilst attempting to keep the queasy, sinister themes of the original intact...

Andrew Traucki continues his one man propaganda war against nature with The Jungle, the third instalment of his ‘Trilogy of Terror’ that once again sees an unfortunate group of people run into trouble when they leave the comforts of an urbanised environment The Jungle has been sitting on retail shelves for just over a fortnight now, and thanks to Monster Pictures...

While its sequels contain my favourite Weng Weng moments, there is no question that For Y'ur Height Only is the superior film in the greatest trilogy of all time. It's the most cohesive movie of the bunch, and it still manages to squeeze in all sorts of crazy shit. The English dub really ads something special to this one, brimming with hilarious and surreal dialogue... [READ MORE]
Written by Sylvester Stallone and starring Jason Statham, James Franco, Winona Ryder, and Kate Bosworth, the action thriller Homefront is now available to rent or buy in Australia on DVD and Blu-ray, and thanks to Roadshow Entertainment we've got five Blu-ray's to give away! Ex-Drug Enforcement Agent and widower Phil Broker (Statham) has moved off the grid... [READ MORE]
Robocop is an explosive action film with a satirical edge and more smarts than it gets credit for, thanks to Dutch director Paul Verhoeven's sensibilities and a darkly humourous and knowing script. Even though Robocop is outrageously violent it doesn't feel exploitative, even when bad guys are being mowed down or splattered across the screen... [READ MORE]
Shadow Man gets off to a slightly dodgy start because Stevie is almost immediately doubled excessively. Stevie's hair is still glorious, at least, and it makes him look a bit like Ron Jeremy. The story is baffling and convoluted, as seems to be Stevie's want since the new millennium, and the action isn't always that exciting or well edited... [READ MORE]
