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 […]

The Subject (Sci-Fi Horror Puzzle BDSM IN SPACE)

  Puzzles? Horror? Space? Blast off (weak space and bondage jokes coming, on occasion). I've been digging more into these first-person survival romps and this is the first sci-fi-themed terror-ship I've decided to ride, mostly because the others all looked terrible and this one has spacecraft so The Subject had me gravitating towards it like […]

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 […]

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 […]

AUTHORity – Rick Claypool LIVES

As at least some of you know, the site has been recently branching out to include more of underground culture, such as the first artist feature I did, and now, the first author feature. I didn't know what else to call it, but I figured "AUTHORity" sounded pretty cool, yet also stupid, so we'll stick […]

Frank Herbert’s Dune Sucks: Part II – Dune Messiah

If you started here, you started wrong, or in my opinion thematically, probably right. I suggest you read my analysis of Dune before going through this one.  If you're interested, just click here for the truth about that living suck. Dune Messiah was Herbert's first sequel in his Dune universe, and it tends to be […]

Frank Herbert’s Dune Sucks: Part I – Dune

Well, as you can assume, I, Arkus have been taking my time reading something. This mysterious something with irritating italics in places that don't make sense all of the time, is all of the original Dune novels written by Frank Herbert, throwing in the parody called Doon for my final analysis.  This was actually published about two years ago, but in creating the new […]
