Piercing (Giallo Sadomasochist Thriller)

Piercing (Giallo Sadomasochist Thriller)

  Piercing is a bizarre psychological thriller from writer-director Nicolas Pesce, which also doubles up as a dark, fucked-up rom-com that spreads giallo everywhere. Two negatives don’t make a positive, but two nuts create a violent and bloody mess, with lots of yellow. Reed is a family man with an awkward, timid nature, who harbors a desire to […]

Seeds (New England Insect Incest)

  Take a psychological creature-feature thriller and throw in inappropriate sexual desire so that it’s clear keeping it in the family is not always best and you get Seeds, a haunting debut from writer-director Owen Long. When a night of debauchery spirals out of control, a young man named Marcus retreats to the isolation of […]

Empathy, Inc. (Empathetic Exploitation but in Sci-Fi)

  Imagine a virtual reality where you can smell and touch. Commit murder without repercussions, indulge in your deepest fantasies without waking up sore, cleaning up the mess or checking for an STD. Empathy, Inc. is the second film from director Yedidya Gorsetman with writer Mark Leidner, a brilliant sci-fi thriller that takes a look at our obsession with […]

MFKZ (GTA San Andreas Goes Sci-Fi)

  MFKZ, co-directed by Guillaume Renard and Shoujirou Nishimi, is a lot of things crammed into 90 minutes of kinetic animated insanity. The nod to anime is rather overt, but there’s also an influence of alien sci-fi, call-outs to the GTA games and various elements of hip hop culture with a dose of the sort […]

Punk Never Ends! (Heroin Crust in Slovakia)

Punk Never Ends! (Heroin Crust in Slovakia)

  Those who enjoy soap-opera drama of people’s misery should grab a glass of wine and popcorn for the feature debut from director Juro Šlauka, Punk Never Ends! (Punk je hned!), a bleak, realistic look into drug addiction. It’s the perfect film to let kids know the glamorous life they could lead if they became an […]

Balcony (Self-Loathing Identity Collapse)

  Phew, this one is a killer. Man... Balcony is one of those films that doesn't tell you much about its real meaning until the ending. You think you got it all worked out. You're sure of it. This is a touching glimmer of hope in all the human garbage, you think, and then it […]

The Spadina House (Lol Victorian Superpowers)

The Spadina House (Lol Victorian Superpowers)

  Goddamn I can't stop laughing at this. And that probably makes you think I hate it, but in actuality it's something else, trust me. The Spadina House proved quite difficult to review because it's rather simple to blow its cover in a second (I actually did already, you just didn't notice), so I'm conflicted […]

Do No Harm (Hippocratic Slaughter Oath)

  God this is such a great film. I knew it was going to be, there was no way a doctor standing with a depressed glare at the camera, covered in blood whilst holding a scalpel, was going to be anything but graphic (and thus very good). That stare got me sold. But what sold […]

Nachtstück (Creepy Woodland Being Oppression)

  WTFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF. I caught a few shots of this animated short and knew it was going to freak me the hell out even before I watched it. The drab colors, the indeterminate bestiary of forest creatures that seem to tick off several different the phobias on the triggering checklist, the darkness, the loathing and oppression. […]

Freight (Crushing Sci-Fi Existentialism)

  It saddens me when I see such great, short films receive so little attention, and when they do on bigger sites it's another drop in the constant stream of digital vomit bigger names spew out at too fast a rate to notice all for the sake of quantity in this age of consume at […]
