Clue turns 30!
30 years ago this month, Clue , a film based on the popular Parker Brothers game, opened in cinemas. The movie didn't make much of an impact initially (for reasons I will get to shortly), but, as the home video market was booming by the mid-1980's, got an a...

The Serpent and the Rainbow (1988)
"Whatever happens, death is not the end!" -Lucien Celine. The recent passing of legendary director Wes Craven prompted me to take another look at some of his films. I'd say that The Serpent and the Rainbow is his most underrated work. It is based on the n...

The Victim (2011)
"I saw a film once where this guy says, 'I don't deserve to die.' And this other dude looks at him and says, 'Deserving's got nothing to do with it.' Then he blows his head off. That's what I believe. Deserving's got nothing to do with it." -Kyle Limato. Wh...

Yesterday morning, my brother-in-law texted me the sad news that Sir Christopher Lee died. As readers to this site know, I've reviewed a number of films that were graced by his presence. To that end, I wrote and article honoring this man. Farewell, sir! ...

Agony Booth review: Bubble Boy (2001)
My latest Agony Booth review looks at a movie that could have been good. The list of films with great potential that end up at the bottom of the barrel are too numerous to list. One of the major ones is the movie Bubble Boy . The film was a spoof of the TV ...

Rasputin: The Mad Monk (1966)
"I only know I have this power. I have always had it. I can feel it burning within me, driving me on. It is here inside me. It is in my hands. And I warn you, I warn you all, that I, Grigory Yefimovich Rasputin, intend to use it. The power is mine and I wil...

Agony Booth review: 5 reasons the TNG movies weren't that good
I've stated more than once that the four movies Star Trek: The Next Generation spawned were disappointing. My latest article for the Agony Booth goes into more detail as to why that is. I think it’s safe to say that Star Trek fandom was at its height in 1...
