I picked up director Siu-Hung Chung's powerful 1993 martial arts/swordplay flick The Assassin years ago at a second-hand shop for just a couple of dollars. Instead of watching it right away, the flick sat on a shelf in my collection unwatched for over five years. Realizing that I'd never popped ...

HK Hentai Kamen is one of those movies that you're almost embarrassed to admit that you've seen, let alone thoroughly enjoyed. The damned thing was a lot more fun than it had any right to be, and not in that ironic hipster kind of way. HK was genuinely entertaining, so I'm not at all ...

If you want to know why I have my head stuffed so far up the South Korean movie industry's well-groomed ass these days, look no further than Jeong-beom Lee's No Tears for the Dead. It's the kind of thoughtful, well-balanced action movie Hollywood tried to make before it began suckling at the ...

This is some genuinely scary stuff. Freedom is frequently an illusion.

No, the unhappy blobfish you see above isn't named Charlie. However, he (or she) does strongly favor the creature in my short story "Charlie," which you can find in my anthology Twelve (Stories About Love and Death). A link to the book resides above should you decide to spend some money on it.

I've watched a fair number of flicks in the Tomie series, and I'll be brutally honest with you: I have absolutely no idea what in the hell is going on. I have the basics down pat, but if you ask me anything specific about the character and her ability to come back from the dead time and time ...
