Willis — The Understanding


Hip Hop/Rap

Louis Fowler
From the opening R&B samples and powerful horn section that triumphantly blasts the arrival of a new hero on the scene, Willis’ The Understanding perfectly captures the innercity swagger of a blaxploitation movie icon.

Die, Monster, Die!

Buy, viewer, buy!


Horror

Rod Lott

In Die, Monster, Die!, a decent H.P. Lovecraft adaptation from 1965, the repellent Reinhart (Nick Adams, Frankenstein Conquers the World) visits the secluded mansion of wacky, wheelchair-bound Witley (Boris Karloff, Targets), who has discovered something quite peculiar residing in his basement.

Rewind This!

Be kind, Rewind.


Documentary

Rod Lott

Anyone who recalls the days of loading up on VHS rentals at mom-and-pop video stores back in "The Day" will feel that joy return in a rush from Rewind This!, on DVD from, appropriately, the FilmBuff label.

The Black Water Vampire

Bites down hard.


Horror

Rod Lott

Two takeaways from The Black Water Vampire

1. I really like the cover logo. 

2. Holy crap, Blair Witch much?

Carrie / Dario Argento's Dracula 3D

Everything old is boo again.


Horror

Rod Lott
With Carrie, director Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don't Cry) bravely steps up to the challenge of remaking Brian De Palma's 1976 horror classic — one of the genre's few to boast Academy Award nominations in major categories — but one senses even she knows her version will pale.

Hell hath ... aw, you know the rest.


Thriller

Rod Lott

Young Detective Dee: Rise of the Sea Dragon

Short of clues.


Action

Rod Lott

Tsui Hark struck gold with 2010’s Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame, marking a return to form for the Hong Kong director following several lackluster, effects-driven flops.

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa

Badder equals better.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Strange as it sounds, come March 2, one of the films that stands a good chance of walking home with an Academy Award is Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa. It’s one of three nominees in the category of makeup, but still, the recognition marks real progress for films that open with a senior citizen getting his junk caught in a vending machine.

Banshee Chapter / You're Next

Not all horror is rote, kids!


Horror

Rod Lott
More than just a DVD with a cool cover, Banshee Chapter is a rarity among indie horror: It's actually about something. And it's also genuinely frightening.
