    Want to watch a movie that ends with you saying "What the fuck...". Watch The Fan!

  • Street Trash

    Street Trash


    It doesn't quite deliver on what the premise promises you but still work a look. When this movie is on it's really on. The people melting scenes where they turn into bright neon dayglo colors are just pure fun but the movie's standout scene is where there are several minutes where a bunch of people playing keep away with a guy's severed penis. Worth the watch for that alone.

  • Dead Heat

    Dead Heat


    One of my favorite horror comedies ever. Treat Williams playing this crazy ass situation straight is just perfect. Joe Piscopo's cheesy failure to be particularly funny actually goes far enough to come out the other end and make it amusing. Extremely appropriate as the idiot sidekick. The special effects are also way way better than you're probably expecting and one scene in particular showcases that in a way that makes me hope those involved enjoyed very active and successful careers later on.

  • Brain Damage

    Brain Damage


    I use the word "sleaze" a lot in my reviews. It's here again in a way typical to Henenlotter. If you've enjoyed Basketcase or Frankenhooker you'll enjoy this. Weird, filthy, and super wacky.

  • Liquid Sky

    Liquid Sky


    An until recently a mostly unsung document of punk era New York that feels a little like a Suicide album come to life. It has some interesting and ahead of its time things to say about gender and sexuality all inside of a sci-fi wrapper. The photo shoot near the end of the film would be a purely iconic scene known to most if there was any justice in this world. I can't help but think Nicholas Winding Refn saw this and it left and impression on him. Hopefully the day comes when its seen as an LGBTQ classic.

  • Multiple Maniacs

    Multiple Maniacs


    It's no wonder that this would serve as the prototype John Waters and leave it's stain on verite in the 70s and beyond. If you're reading this you know Waters' reputation and this movie completely justifies it. Good taste is nowhere to be found here. One scene in particular is designed to upset good Catholic moms in the most sacrilegious way I've ever seen. It put quite the spin on all those masses I had to go to as a kid.

  • Sonny Boy

    Sonny Boy


    Part horror comedy part melodrama. This film's sure in a niche all its own. There is a progressive for its time portrayal of a trans woman in the form of David Carradine's character. True that there are problematic elements here but still above the way trans women were portrayed in films (especially genre film) of the era. She's only ever referred to as a woman and the movie doesn't treat her like "a man in a dress". I'm otherwise not sure how best to describe the weirdness of this movie.

  • Private Parts

    Private Parts


    Archetypal 70s sleaze, but in a good way. A man whose sexuality is warped and repressed takes a liking to a young runaway who decides to stay at his mother's run down hotel. She begins to reciprocate his urges in the form of exhibitionism. The ending somehow manages to be both extremely problematic and somewhat progressive at the same time. Worth a look for fans of Paul Bartel and 70s nastiness.

  • Game Over

    Game Over


    Like Home Alone but good! It's finally becoming known in America and I say that's a good thing (I only became aware of it a year ago myself). My only complaint is that if you are upset by bad shit happening to dogs in movies there are a few scenes that you'll find unpleasant. The only thing Home Alone has over this one is the presence of Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern.

  • Shin Godzilla

    Shin Godzilla


    Much as I do enjoy the campy rubber suit Godzilla sequels I consider the original film in a separate category. This is also the case with Shin Godzilla. It's the only subsequent Godzilla film that captures what the first movie was like. However, Godzilla in this movie is like never before. It's pure body horror. The creature first emerges looking like a giant fetus spewing blood out of its gills. Over the course of the movie it evolves and spends…

  • The Dark Backward

    The Dark Backward


    How to describe this movie? I have no idea. Super weird I guess.

    It's a garbage filled dystopia and everyone seems a little off. Probably from all the pollution which causes the main character, a failed comedian played by Judd Nelson, to grow a third arm out of his back which then becomes the gimmick of his completely unfunny comedy act. The real highlight here is Bill Paxton which anyone who sees this will agree. I may even go so…

  • The Vagrant

    The Vagrant


    Bill Paxton plays a boring yuppie who decides to live the American dream. Unfortunately a deformed Vagrant has other ideas and starts gaslighting him. This is one of those movies that should be a well known cult classic that slipped through the cracks. It's one of those quirky weird horroresque comedies they only made in the 90s, like Ed and His Dead Mother. There is plenty of commentary of the fears and anxieties of the era but even aside from…
