[MY EXPLOITATION EDUCATION] GANG WARS (1976)


February 17, 2018    Matt Wedge

    I love genre cinema. I will always have a soft spot for horror, action, sci-fi, and all the subgenres that exist inside those larger categories. What I have never felt any real connection to are those films that exist in the realm of pure sleaze. You know the…

[ARE YOU READY TO PLAY SOME BINGO?] ‘HE NEVER DIED 2’ IS ON ITS WAY


February 15, 2018    Matt Wedge

  HE NEVER DIED was one of the more pleasant genre film surprises of 2015. As much as I tend to enjoy Henry Rollins in his capacity as a musician, writer, and sometime talk show host, his career as an actor has been spotty. His performances have always been solid,…

  If you read DAILY GRINDHOUSE on an even semi-regular basis, the odds are good that you, just like nearly all of our contributors and editors—past and present, grew up on Fangoria. After watching that once-great giant of horror genre coverage slowly wither away over the last ten years, it…

SINGAPORE SLING Is A Transgressive Ode To Film Noir & The Marquis De Sade

SINGAPORE SLING Is A Transgressive Ode To Film Noir & The Marquis De Sade


February 15, 2018    Mike Vanderbilt

It is an understatement to say that Nikos Nikolaidis’ 1990 film SINGAPORE SLING is a weird one. There isn’t any other way to describe it.  A bizarro love letter to Otto Preminger’s 1944 noir classic, LAURA, SLING also acts as an imaginary sequel to Laura – if the story took an eccentric…

[IN THEATERS NOW!] BLACK PANTHER (2018)


February 14, 2018    Deirdre Crimmins

    Like many superhero movies, BLACK PANTHER starts with an animated origin story. While this is not unexpected, it is also not unwarranted. The Marvel character of Black Panther may be well known to readers, but to film-only fans, the character has only appeared in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR….

      The sub-genre of fear of technology in horror — let’s call it “techno-fear movies” — is nothing new. It’s been around almost as long as horror has been around, but with each decade, it changes to keep up with the times. In the 1980s it was arcade…

February 12, 2018    Ryan Carey

    It’s a difficult thing to process, Nathan Cowdry’s Shiner — on the one hand it’s not a terribly complex narrative, despite the fact that’s it’s ridden with flashbacks, fever dreams, and less-than-reliable Ps OV. Really, I’m not kidding, the whole thing fits together in near-meticulous fashion even though by…
