Almost Human (Film Review)

On last friday Beyond Fest chose to show a double feature of […]


Predators

No, It’s Really Good: Predators (Film Review)

The Alien and Predator have undergone some very extreme ups and downs. From studio mismanagement to financial disaster these two franchises have experience just about every snag known to Hollywood. From the brilliance of the initial entries into the series, to the disappointing Predator 2, the so good it’s almost unbelievable Aliens, the jumbled mess that is Aliens 3,and  the complete and utter train wreck  that is Aliens: Resurrection. After […]

Bruce Campbell Talks ‘Army of Darkness 2′

A sequel to Army of Darkness is something that most horror fans have been waiting to see for a long time. Somewhere around twenty-two years. The third film in Sam Raimi’s much beloved ‘Evil Dead’ trilogy, Army of Darkness ends on a little bit of a cliffhanger. Spoilers? You’ve had twenty something years to see the movie. We’re going ahead with it. Recently, Raimi, Fede Alvarez, and Campbell made a […]

Leviathan (Film Review)

Peter Weller is one of those actors that I’m so intrigued by that I’ll pretty much watch him read the phone book. He straddles the line between leading man and quirky supporting character.  Weller, most famously known for portraying Robocop and Buckaroo Banzai, plays the leader of a deep sea mining crew who encounter a soviet submarine wreck on the ocean floor. The crew discover some bizarre cargo, bring it […]

Ultraseven (Film Review)

Ultraseven is the second installment of the long running Japanese film and television franchise based on the television character Ultraman. Ultraman, and Ultraseven of course, is an amalgam of western super hero archetypes and japanese moral and ethical codes. The first majorly successful Japanese superhero was named Starman. He was essentially a superman archetype. Ultraman, following in Starman’s footsteps, was also deeply influenced by the big blue crusader. Ultraman was […]

The Creature Walks Among Us

The Universal Monsters are almost as ubiquitous today as they were 70 years ago when they first appeared on the silver screen. Built on the stirring performances of Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, and Lon Chaney Jr  the Universal Monsters are now cultural icons. The Wolf Man, Frankenstein’s Monster, The Invisible Man, The Mummy, Dracula and The Creature from the Black Lagoon all appear regularly in pop culture. The monsters are […]

No, It’s Really Good: The Shadow (Film Review)

Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow Knows. The 1994 big budget feature film adaptation of the seminal radio/pulps/comics/serials character known as The Shadow was, at the time considered a faliure. It failed to launch a video game, toy, and clothing line all designed to take your hard earned 1994 money. The film was panned  by critics, and failed to make enough money to justify […]

Deadly Prey (Film Review)

Thanks to the internet there have been numerous low-to-no budget films that have taken on serious cult status. Case in point, Troll 2. Troll 2 is the worst thing ever made but people love it for precisely that reason. It’s an artifact from a bygone era. Granted, that era wasn’t that long ago, but still. People have a serious cast of the 80’s nostalgia currently. A film that was released […]

The Best TV Show You’ve Never Seen: Space Sheriff Gavan

Japanese television is a wonderful thing. It’s a bizarre concoction of western influences, Japanese archetypes, and shameless intellectual property theft. Japanese television in the 1980’s was all that on steroids. The 1982 japanese television show Space Sheriff Gavan is a bizarre acid trip of other dimensional beings, 40-something equestrian stable boys who secretly moonlight as alien crime fighters, and a crap load of shape changing alien bad guys named Doublemen.

Karl Urban Has Idead For A Dredd Sequel

Karl Urban is awesome. It’s just a fact. Most actors who star in failed blockbusters try and distance themselves from the project. Urban? He just keeps beating the Dredd drum almost as loud as the fervent fans who want another sequel. Urban sat down with IGN to discuss the future of the currently dormant franchise. He had this to say: IGN: You know, there have been rumblings about a Dredd […]

A Live Action Akira Should Not Made

Katsuhiro Otomo is one of the greatest storytellers currently alive. His magnum dual-medium opus is arguably one of the most important stories created during the 20th century. Otomo started as one of the most promising young manga artist/writers during the late 1970’s. By the 80’s he had cemented a position as a bonafide star with his highly acclaimed  series, about a haunted apartment complex, Domu. In 1982, Otomo launched the […]

Seven Days Film Review

Seven Days may be one of the most underrated television shows of all time. It was smart, funny, dramatic and knew exactly what it was trying to be. The series, unfortunately failed to find a mainstream audenience and was canceled after three seasons. The series centered on former convict Frank B Parker, who, as a means of commuting the rest of his sentence, has been enrolled in Project Backstep, a […]
