VHS Cover Series: A Night At The Video Store: Part VI: The Revenge Of The Tapes

I’ve been renting videos since I was little. My mom would let me rent pretty much anything in the store, but when it came to watching it I had to close my eyes for any of the “no-no” scenes. That’s what my mom called them when I was a little kid and it still makes […]

Horror Down Under: WOLF CREEK (2005)

I only attended two screenings on the last day of SXSW (including festival closer Life), so I’ve combined days eight and nine. For most of the films at SXSW, ballots are issued so that the films can be rated on a scale of one to five. You’re not able to give a half point rating (e.g. […]

SXSW Review: METH STORM: ARKANSAS USA

While Meth Storm: Arkansas USA sounds like some direct-to-video sequel of a Nick Cage movie, I can assure you that’s not at all what this is. Meth Storm is a documentary that premiered at SXSW about users, DTF/DEA, and the Mexican Cartel. The cameras roll as DTF agents bust down doors and users that are […]
