Richard York
Legendary exploitation film producer David F. Friedman mastered the art of his own motto, “Sell the sizzle, not the steak.”

Monster Brawl

If wrestling were like this, I'd watch.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Imagine there were a pay-per-view pro wrestling championship battle in which the fighters were not your Hulk Hogans, but hulking creatures. Would you watch it?

Twins of Evil

Double, double, toil and trouble ...


Horror

Rod Lott
For me, the more desperate Hammer Film Productions got as audiences’ tastes changed in the early 1970s, the more fun their flicks became. That’s why 1971’s Twins of Evil is now one of my favorites from the legendary British studio, after digging into its Blu-ray debut from Synapse Films.

The Moth Diaries

Be drawn to its mild flame.


Horror

Rod Lott
Director Mary Harron's The Moth Diaries is a coming-as-age film in the same way her American Psycho was a Wall Street portrait.

Blade Anime

The vampire hunter gets a toothless treatment.


Action

Rod Lott
I love the character of Blade. I love the Blade comic books, starting with his debut in Marvel's Tomb of Dracula in the 1970s. I love all three Blade movies — yes, including that third one. Hell, I even love the short-lived Blade series Spike TV aired in 2006.

Lisztomania

Sex, symphonies and slapstick — all key to Ken Russell’s cult classic.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Ken Russell was either a genius or a madman, but more likely both. The iconoclastic filmmaker made movies that were loved by many — Tommy, Altered States, The Devils, Crimes of Passion — but despised by many, many more. Regardless of your opinion of them, one cannot deny they are different.

Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume XXIV

You could try to kill it with a forklift, but why?


Television series

Rod Lott
XXIV, VXI, XXX, IV, X — hell, it's all Greek Roman to me. All I know for sure is that each and every box set that has been or will be released of Mystery Science Theater 3000 is worth owning. Since the new Volume XXIV falls into that category, it, too, qualifies.

A Vampire's Tale

This story bites.


Horror

Rod Lott
For being A Vampire's Tale, the story sure is dominated by an antiquities dealer named Jacob (Doug Bradley, the Pinhead of the Hellraiser series). With his hateful stepdaughter and newly pregnant wife, Jacob moves to the country to live on a farm.
