It's the dawn of the disco era in New York, and one man finds himself really struggling with this new style of music. Hearing disco tunes sends him into a trance, and if he finds himself in a Steve Guttenberg type situation where the music can't be stopped, things get ugly. Taking a cue from Silent Night, Deadly Night he puts himself in a situation... [READ MORE]
Japanese director Sion Sono has, with Why Don't You Play In Hell?, merged his distinctive cinematic style (sudden and shocking acts of violence, classical music, ultra-weird characters, an extremely off-kilter sense of humour) with his fondness for Japanese and Chinese cinema in this bloody, off-the-wall meta-joke. It's one of the most explicitly entertaining... [READ MORE]

I don't feel hugely nostalgic about the VHS era, mostly because I was immediately ready to abandon the format as soon as I had an option that didn't require rewinding. One thing I do miss, though, are the lurid video covers I remember from my youth. I would spend entire visits to the video store gazing longingly at titles whose artwork... [READ MORE]
What's in a name? That great bastion of philosophy, The Simpsons, once proposed that a person's name could predestine what sort of person he or she would be. If that's true, then the lead character in WolfCop was inevitably going to be a werewolf one day. Lou Garou is an alcoholic cop barely keeping his life together. He spends his shifts drunk..

Evilspeak is a curious blend of nerd wish-fulfilment fantasy and demonic possession movie, giving it the vicarious thrills that a vigilante picture like Death Wish provides, along with the bloodletting of a slasher that just happens to have a daft supernatural vibe. Admittedly uneven, it has moments of absolute genius when it dares to venture into... [READ MORE]
No one is what they seem. Directed by Brad Anderson and inspired by a short story from Edgar Allan Poe, Stonehearst Asylum is now available to rent or buy in Australia on DVD and Blu-ray, and thanks to Roadshow Entertainment we've got four DVD's to give away! When young doctor Edward Newgate (Jim Sturgess) arrives at Stonehearst Asylum... [READ MORE]
Screenplay by John and Cody Jarratt. Starring John and Charlie Jarratt. Executive produced by John and Cody Jarratt. Released by Winnah Films. I'm getting the sense that Savages Crossing might just be a Jarratt family production. In the movie a storm traps a group people, including some of them Jarratts, at Savages Crossing, an area on the Wonga River... [READ MORE]
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... [READ MORE]
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.

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...
