The Wild Goose Lake (Modern Chinese Gangster Noir is Okay)

  Wuhan before the coronavirus; murky, rainy, with an underlining current of deception. Street gangs steal motorcycles and drugs are dealt in shady parking garages with a large lake featuring uncharted perfect for hiding. Directed by Diao Yinan, this modern neo-noir tale opens with a dispute between two rival gangs on who’s more pro at […]

Yummy (Plastic Surgery Zombie Film)

  Plastic disasters are on the table in Belgiun director Lars Damoiseaux’s Yummy. A woman and her mother seek out shoddy plastic surgery at an Eastern European hospital; the woman wanting a breast reduction and the mannequin-faced mother needing another face lift ala Jocelyn Wildenstein, while the big-breasted woman’s boyfriend is dragged along for moral […]

Blood Machines (Vapid Sci-Fi Horror Synth Cheese)

  Those uninitiated in synthwave and unfamiliar with one of the forefathers of the genre, Carpenter Brut, can now be exposed to it all through bloody 80s nostalgia with the release of Blood Machines on Shudder. The three episode “epic” by Seth Ickerman involves the discovery of an entity who escapes her spaceship, turning into […]

Possessor (Self-Denying Sci-Fi Nighmare Fuel)

  As legendary Canadian auteur David Cronenberg continues to sway from directorial duties, his bloodline has taken the reigns. The pressure was on Brandon Cronenberg to deliver a successful follow up to 2012’s Antiviral, but with Possessor, it can be confirmed that the prodigal son has returned with a shocking new vision. The film deals […]

Nosis (Existential Pinocchio Nose Murder by Vincenz Neuhaus)

  We need more existential nose fiction in the world. Ever since the great one, Nikolai Gogol, conceived of a living nose tale the world has forever attempted to come out of his nostrils and do better. I am happy to say that quest has finally been completed by +5 to charisma animation paladin Vincenz […]

Coyote (LSD Animal Death Revenge by Lorenz Wunderle)

  Yeah where to begin with this? I feel like it's the kind of thing from which you draw your own conclusions. Is there a point? I don't care, because Coyote, with its vivid, 90s gross-out style is primarily a hallucinatory splendor for only the hardcore. But like is there a point (asks a provincial)? […]

Daughter (Stab in the Daddy Heart by Daria Kashcheeva)

  Here's one that stabs deep in the daddy heart. I love Eastern European animation. These days everyone's about anime, and I get it, but before Japan came Eastern Europe. The Czech animation machine was legendary. Old Czech Legends (1953) or Fantastic Planet (1973, lol some people think it's French), being two choice cuts. Since […]

Bone Mother (Baba-Yaga Pronounced Correctly Folk Horror)

Bone Mother (Baba-Yaga Pronounced Correctly Folk Horror)

  The horror industry should really dig into folklore more, from anywhere, and lose the jumpscares. I don't mean dig in there, steal some stuff, and then claim it as one's own, I mean let it reveal itself. Case in point this recent, animated, true-to-the-original short, Bone Mother, which draws on Russian folklore, in particular […]

Igorrr – Very Noise (Frenetic Flesh Beast War by MEAT DEPT.)

  Caught a few words on this one here on the Spinternet, and lol, "insane" and "crazy" were just two of the choice cuts from total fools who obviously have never heard of Igorrr before, duh. It's unlikely you haven't heard of him, but you might be wondering why I'd bother with such a name […]

La Noira (Broken Heart Horror by Carlos Baena)

La Noira (Broken Heart Horror by Carlos Baena)

  La Noira received tons of praise before I even looked at it, and since my suggested viewing kept bothering me about it I figured "okay, fine." Directed by mainstream (gasp) powerhouse Carlos Baena (ahem Jurassic Park III and Toy Story 3, among many others) La Noira (which translates to "The Ferris Wheel") has been […]
