Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/10 No Score Yet Lost in Apocalypse (2018) Basically it feels like you get on board with one tone, and then the film runs out of humour. ‐ Starburst

7/10 No Score Yet Sequence Break (2017) This is such a great underdog sci-fi film, taking oddball romances like Spring and throwing them into cyberspace via a heap of self-aware supporting elements and a sweetly nostalgic script.‐ Starburst

8/10 100% The Wild Boys (Les garçons sauvages) (2018) Gorgeous, bizarre, and unique enough to merit checking out, The Wild Boys is one of the most refreshing debuts of 2018.‐ Starburst

8/10 No Score Yet The Spiritual Boxer (1975) A film like The Spiritual Boxer, though not as instantly recognisable as Five Deadly Venoms or Eight Diagram Pole Fighter, is still well worth checking out.‐ Starburst

6/10 No Score Yet Dogged (2018) At a run time of 116 minutes, Rowntree goes for the slow-burn but can't quite hold the tension.‐ Starburst

6/10 72% Gifted (2017) In some ways it's a film condemning capitalism at large, in others it seems to point a heavy finger towards expectant women as the catalyst for crime, which is kinda gross. ‐ Starburst

7/10 44% The Night of the Virgin (La noche del virgen) (2016) It's an often exhilarating, mostly grubby, continually colorful, trip into deranged sexual horror. ‐ Starburst

9/10 100% Legend of the Mountain (2001) Legend of the Mountain is an unsung classic from a master at the height of his talents. Cinema in its purest form.‐ Starburst

3/10 No Score Yet Keep Watching (2017) Bad writing, uninspired filmmaking, and crap dialogue make Keep Watching a slog of a thrill-ride. You won't find it hard to stop watching.‐ Starburst

8/10 83% When the Wind Blows (1988) What begins as a comfy film about an old (if stubborn) British couple in their twilight years becomes a scathing attack on apathy.‐ Starburst

6/10 60% Chasing the Dragon (2017) The problem is that you've seen it all before. By the end, Chasing the Dragon feels like a stylish retread of Jing Wong's early hits, full of great performances from dependable talent, but missing the scuzzy edge that made his early films so strong.‐ Starburst

7/10 No Score Yet Our Evil (Mal Nosso) (2017) An intriguing debut feature with a great sense of mystery, Our Evil keeps you wondering whilst pushing you deeper into murky waters.‐ Starburst

6/10 No Score Yet Dark Age (1988) Horror fans will be pleasantly horrified to find John Jarratt, no infamous worldwide as Wolf Creek's sadistic serial killer, turning it out as a lovable ranger.‐ Starburst

9/10 83% Paprika (2006) Yes, Paprika is a masterpiece. The animation medium lends itself so perfectly to dream capers that it's no wonder Kon's final film is regarded a perfect marriage of form and subject.‐ Starburst

6/10 No Score Yet Too Young to Die (1990) Taking aim at every level of Italian culture, Martino and Gastaldi put together a surprisingly enjoyable caper. Sure the hard-hitting exploitation of a title and subject like that are dismissed early, but as a film its watchable and nicely put together.‐ Starburst

7/10 47% Red Christmas (2017) Underneath the warm, if cynical, family sentiment, Red Christmas is a dark and luridly coloured home invasion film. ‐ Starburst

6/10 No Score Yet Too Young to Die (Morte sospetta di una minorenne) (1975) Taking aim at every level of Italian culture, Martino and Gastaldi put together a surprisingly enjoyable caper. Sure the hard-hitting exploitation of a title and subject like that are dismissed early, but as a film its watchable and nicely put together.‐ Starburst

6/10 No Score Yet Ghostroads: A Japanese Rock N Roll Ghost Story (2017) Ghostroads is a short and sweet triumph of zany Rock 'n' Roll cinema, at the very least you're guaranteed to walk away with a newfound appreciation for the Tokyo rock scene. Expect to walk away a fan of The Neatbeats.‐ Starburst

8/10 85% Kill, Baby, Kill (Operazione paura) (Curse of the Living Dead) (Don't Walk in the Park) (1966) A perfect Gothic horror film, and a kind of sign-off from the "classic" phase of the genre.‐ Starburst

3/10 No Score Yet American Mummy (2014) It's not a pig-awful film to be fair, and that's what's irritating. It's just low budget and ill conceived.‐ Starburst

6/10 83% The Villainess (Ak-Nyeo) (2017) Whilst the facts of the plots are hard to follow and the fights over-shot, there's still fun to be had in the bombast and candour of it all.‐ Starburst

4/10 No Score Yet Volumes of Blood (2015) None of the shorts are particularly memorable, but some can be entertaining.‐ Starburst

5/10 44% Nails (2017) Altogether it's a simple, but relatively satisfying, horror film.‐ Starburst

8/10 76% The Eyes of My Mother (2016) The Eyes of My Mother is perhaps most haunting when it points out how simple it would be to skew a child's moral compass, or how ridiculous the idea of closure is in terms of a horror film.‐ Starburst

7/10 No Score Yet Stake Land II (2017) Berk and Olsen are fine stand-ins for Mickle, but without Damici, The Stakelander would be a tough sell. It's not a step up, more of a step-to-the-side, with great supporting performances (A.C. Peterson and Steven Williams in particular) and good action‐ Starburst

3/10 No Score Yet Krampus Unleashed (2016) Krampus: Unleashed feels most comfortable when its offing terrible people with terrible violence, we just wish it did that more.‐ Starburst

5/10 No Score Yet Day of Reckoning (2016) If the effects had been practical and the gore more heavily indulged in, there could have been a rip-roaring time to be had here; instead it's a dour-faced disposable which rambles through its runtime without evoking much reaction.‐ Starburst

8/10 99% The Wailing (Goksung) (2016) The results are two-fold: firstly, it's an entrancing experience elevated beyond the simple mechanics of what's expected, secondly, it makes a huge group of contemporary western thrillers seem comparatively dispensable.‐ Starburst

8/10 92% I Am Not a Serial Killer (2016) It's an engrossing feature which grants Christopher Lloyd one of his best roles in years, whilst letting Max Records flaunt his undeniable talents as a sympathetic lead. Horror fans will really enjoy this fresh examination of the nature of monsters.‐ Starburst

6/10 No Score Yet Bachelor Games (2016) When the film starts to embrace its horror side a bit more, McGown knows the audience will figure it out, so at the half-way mark turns the film on its head, revealing the true nature of the threat and the web of deceit that permitted it. It's a bold move‐ Starburst
