    Howl of the Devil

    ★★★½

    "While Paul Naschy’s El aullido del diablo, a.k.a. The Howl of the Devil, isn’t strictly a werewolf film, it does include a brief appearance by his signature character, Waldemar Daninsky, one of many monsters he appears as over the course of what turns out to be a particularly perverted psycho-sexual odyssey. Naschy’s most monstrous character, though, is the decidedly human Hector Doriani, a failed stage actor living in the shadow of his dead brother Alex, a horror star of the…

  • Trees Lounge

    Trees Lounge

    ★★★★½

    "After playing an aspiring indie filmmaker in Alexandre Rockwell’s In the Soup and a practicing one in Tom DiCillo’s Living in Oblivion, it was inevitable that Steve Buscemi would choose to step behind the camera himself. After cutting his teeth with the 1992 short What Happened to Pete, in which he wrote, directed, and starred, he made his feature debut with Trees Lounge, which premiered at the 1996 Cannes Film Festival (where it competed for the Camera d’Or), the first…

    Father's Day

    ★★★½

    "I can't stop watching and I don't want to look at it anymore."

    Father's Day wouldn't be complete without a viewing of Astron-6's bad-taste odyssey, engineered Grindhouse-style to look like a product of the '80s slasher boom.

Because it only gets more depraved from there.

    Presented as if it's the Late Night…

    Poltergay

    "You have homosexual fantasies. Accept it. Act upon it. You'll feel much better."

    Going by the poster, this movie should feature five ghosts in white sheets. At no point in the movie does the quintet of dead gay disco dancers parade around in white sheets. No stars.

    What's that? You say there's a movie called Gaslight? Sorry, dear. Never heard of it. You must have imagined the whole thing.

  • Saving Christmas

    Saving Christmas

    This "film" has a running time of about 79 minutes. Here's how that breaks down:

    5.5% - Kirk Cameron's smug, hot chocolate-obsessed introduction
    3% - A seemingly unmotivated cutaway to what looks like a much more interesting movie but is, in fact, not (Bonus: We get to see this footage again in its entirety when it's placed in the proper context)
    2.5% - Cheaply animated opening credits set to a ska cover of "Silent Night"
    7.5% - Kirk's "brother-in-law" --…
