The Happening (2008)

You know your movie’s in trouble when your opening credits are identical to a Neil Breen film. The title of this movie alone should be a pretty good indicator of what you’re in for. The Happening (2008), both as a title and as a film, is so simple, so straightforward, and yet so vague at the […]

Replica (2005)

Before making Birdemic: Shock and Terror, San Franciscan filmmaker James Nguyen followed up his first feature film Julie and Jack with the scientific ‘thriller’ Replica (2005) – a cautionary tale about the dangers of  stem cell research and cloning technology. As one would hope, Nguyen really delivers with this film. His iconic and crappy scene construction, terrible visual effects, […]

Room Full Of Spoons (2016)

The best part of any cult film screening is the sense of community that accompanies the viewing experience. The simple act of sitting down and watching a movie is enhanced by a shared passion with the people surrounding you. Complete strangers become best friends for a night thanks to this one common interest. It’s a rare experience, but when it […]

Nine Lives (2016)

I’d like to pitch you all a film about a workaholic father who neglects his family, who has a whimsical, eye-opening curse cast upon him by Christopher Walken. This curse helps our businessman protagonist understand just how important family is, and the dangers of neglecting close friends and loved ones. Obsessed with designing buildings, the character will witness first-hand […]

Silly Movie 2 (2004)

Hey, the title card is upside down! This is just Silly, Movie! Hey everyone, remember that hilarious parody / spoof film, Silly Movie 1? What’s that? No…. ? Oh, well of course not – that’s because it doesn’t exist! There is no first Silly Movie! So how then, could there possibly be an unfunny, unwatchable, jokeless […]

Pass Thru (2016)

I was extremely fortunate to attend the Toronto premiere of Neil Breen’s latest film masterpiece Pass Thru (2016) this week…. and boy, what an incredible night it was! The screening itself was surprisingly packed, with angry late-comers being turned away from the sold-out theatre. Before the film even started, there was an excited energy resonating throughout […]

Jason and the Argonauts (1963)

First of all, let me say that I truly, sincerely enjoy Jason and the Argonauts. I always have. It’s one of the most memorable sword-and-sandal epics ever made. Of course, even as a kid I could see the film’s visual shortcomings, including some of the most hilariously dated special effects of all time. That being said, I have a lot of […]

ShitShow Showdown: The Fantastic Four (1994) vs. Fantastic Four (2015)

A bold choice for the 2015 reboot to rename the series ‘Fant- Four -Stic.’ Today two terrible, awful, loathsome, ridiculous, pathetic, shameful, lame and worthless movies go head to head for the title of worst Fantastic Four motion picture ever produced in the history of the universe. Of the three Fantastic Four origin story movies (including the 2005 […]

Pay the Ghost (2015)

Oh, Mr. Cage, how desperate you must be. While idly scrolling through an endless minefield of garbage Netflix content, I came across a title just vague and stupid enough to catch my attention. Pay the Ghost? What the hell does that even mean? As a horror/thriller film, the title should be enticing and mysterious, and while that […]
