“UNCLE PECKERHEAD” A Killer Thriller

August 10th, 2020 No comments

 

Written Review by John Delia

(also check out Al McGhee’s video chat with director Matthew John Lawrence here at Your Entertainment Ticket)

When you think of a horror film you expect a lot of mayhem, monsters and ghastly scenes, and in the movie Uncle Peckerhead you get all three. The film targets not only the fear fan, but this one works on another level, hard rock music. All in fun, the movie starts out with a slide BASED ON A TRUE STORY and then proceeds to bring out the ghoul and bloody mess that ensues. The film has been released in select theaters so check your local listings. Read more…

“BLACK WATER: ABYSS” Trapped with Crocks

Review by John Delia

The film Black Water: Abyss has a pretty good suspense storyline, but that’s if you haven’t seen the original that spawned this sequel. The crocks are back and they are as mean as ever waiting to feed on new meat. This time they are looking to snag some unaware spelunkers. The film is available in some theaters and at home on VOD.

“THE TAX COLLECTOR” Hell in a Handbasket

Review by John Delia

As street gang films go, The Tax Collector is right alongside the most memorable films with a vicious story that should make you shudder. A high octane thriller, the early back story plays out with some nice drama and setup, before going into a hellish cacophony of bullets and explosions. In the middle of it all is the fine acting of Bobby Soto and Shia LaBeouf. Read more…

Sick and Twisted at “TWO HEADS CREEK”

Review by John Delia

A very cool sick and twisted horror comedy Two Heads Creek takes you on the road to Australia for a reunion. Nicely written, acted and directed, if you like wicked bloody action, this one will have you rolling on the floor. A bit over the top, but who’s counting heads in this sordid tale from the “Down Under”? Read more…

“ONE CUT OF THE DEAD” Blood and Zombies

Review by John Delia

Very campy and a bit over the top, the film One Cut of the Dead is out on DVD and a DVD/Blu-ray Steelbook. The film tells the story of a zombie takeover at a deserted water plant as the director is making a movie about zombies. It’s very unique and a fun watch if you can stick with it. If you like the absurd, than this comedy/horror flick may just be your cup of Saki. Read more…

“CREEPSHOW: Season One” Tales of Terror

Review by John Delia

Definitely a guilty pleasure, the series Creepshow has released their first Season on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital. Yes it’s very creepy as the title suggests and it even has a lot of cool stories that are totally ludicrous in a good way to make you laugh. What makes this collective body of work extra special however, is the comic book style introductions and the very hideous monsters you’ll be exposed to. You’ll want to watch it a second time in about 6 months. Read more…

“DREAMLAND” a Fantasy Crime Thriller

Review by John Delia

Wow, this indie film Dreamland came out of nowhere and it really puts the combination of crime/horror/fantasy genres in a very good place. Nicely directed, written and acted, the film takes you into the minds of some very evil protagonists and antagonists. Hard to define who is the wickedest, once the film begins it’s a diabolical whirlwind. Read more…

“BLOOD AND MONEY” Cold Cash

Review by John Delia

This crime drama gets too familiar too fast even if the setting and characters are reasonably original. Blood and Money takes the formula of “what would you do” if you came across a bag of cash from a bank robbery and no one was looking? It’s a premise that works well on paper, but in this case the timeline works against the character’s whereabouts and the consequences are expected and predictable. Read more…

“TAPE” Stolen Dreams

Review by John Delia

Creepy and candid the true story Tape tells an explicit tale of the casting couch. It may not be a definitive look at recent events, but what does come to pass is a realistic view of one woman’s bane affected by a scam. Its show business at its lowest level of taking advantage of a young movie star wannabe who thinks she has struck gold. Openly informative while entertaining as a narrative, the film should scare sex tape scammers while warning bogus casting directors that it won’t be as easy as it was to steal ones dreams.

“GREED” Mesmerizingly Silly

March 5th, 2020 No comments

 

 

 

Review by John Delia

A showcase for actor comedian Steve Coogan the movie GREED enters the crowding theater list and it’s actually pretty good if you like wacky comedy. What does save the film from imploding within however, is the drama part that takes the film up a notch. The screenplay about a narcissistic superficial new money big spender takes you into his world and makes greed look normal. From the looks of the production, this wannabe mainstream flick could just make itself some box office bucks in areas that enjoy British humor. Read more…
