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 (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)

  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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Blissful Accidental Death (Memories Hurt)

The Blissful Accidental Death (Memories Hurt)

  After the painfully cocky, and very French, rejection from Cannes we realized we'll always be bottom-feeding worms. That's fine, because most art films don't make any money anyway. Shit, neither do we... Well forget that aborted attempt at an intro, because this is the beginning of more film coverage, especially shorts, which are grossly […]

Upgrade (Death Wish + Linux = )

Upgrade (Death Wish + Linux = )

  Upgrade is the second film by the Australian Leigh Whaddel, a co-creator of the Saw franchise. Thankfully this film represents a movement away from Whaddel’s earlier gory shenanigans and is a venture into the holiest of holies: science fiction. As opposed to exploring a world where a pig mask wearing grandpa gets hard from […]

Blue My Mind (Little Mermaid Body Horror)

Blue My Mind (Little Mermaid Body Horror)

  The “coming of age” theme has been exploited in so many films over the years that I’d probably have a brain aneurysm in the process of trying to name them all. Cynical elitism aside, however, at times a healthy dash of artistic flair combined with strong cinematography can give even the most cliched of […]

Mandy (2018) (Big Chainsaw Duels Are Cool)

  Panos Cosmatos is a name that should definitely be known to fans of more off-the-wall cinema. Boosting up an undeniably old-school touch with modern cinematography and sound techniques, the young Canadian director should have been on indie film fans’ radar already his dazzling Beyond the Black Rainbow (2010). In 2018, he’s back again with […]
