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, […]

Growing Up With Manos: The Hands of Fate by Jackey Neyman Jones

Widely considered one of the worst films of all time, Manos: The Hands of Fate (1966) is a horror movie that’s scary for all the wrong reasons. This aimlessly slow-paced motion picture features plenty of bizarre choices, including an ill-fitting jazz soundtrack and copious amounts of desert driving. The few people who can stomach a screening are certainly left […]

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 […]

Silent Night Deadly Night Part 2 (1987)

“It’s Christmas time!” “But Trebor,” you might be saying, “why are you skipping part 1 and jumping right into a review of the sequel?” Well imaginary reader, besides the fact that this is my site and I can do whatever the hell I want on it, the first half-hour of Silent Night Deadly Night Part 2 […]

Gigli (2003)

Ben Affleck and J-Lo react to Gigli’s reviews. Time for some math. What do you get when you combine Ben Affleck & Jennifer Lopez with an incredibly shoddy script posing as a forward-thinking drama? Turn in your results, students, and let me grade your papers. That’s right everyone, the answer is Gigli (2003). This is the record-breaking film […]

Titanic: The Legend Goes On… (2000)

Ah, the elegant behind-the-seagull’s-butthole reveal. Movies don’t use this technique enough. Titanic: The Legend Goes On… is the second of three Italian animated feature films about the disastrous sinking of the RMS Titanic. Having said that, this film isn’t a direct sequel and has nothing to do with it’s predecessor, The Legend of the Titanic, other than […]
