Russian Roulette 0

Accept – Russian Roulette – 1986

My love for Accepts definite breakthrough album Balls to the Wall at the time made me buy a few more albums by Accept. I still have Russian Roulette on vinyl somewhere but I can’t say that I listen to it very often änymore. At least not on vinyl. But it was, more or less, Udo Dirkscheider’s last album with the band. Ok, they had a reunion a few years later and a couple of other...

Megaboa – 2021 – Eric Roberts

On the cover art of Megaboa, there’s one name and that’s Eric Roberts. That ought to tell you two things. First, of all, he’s the only actor in the movie that has some kind of big attracting name. And Second, the movie probably won’t be much good since his name is seldom associated with quality films these days. An third, well, there actually is a third thing you should realize – He won’t have very...

Wrong Place, Wrong Time – 2021

When you see a movie named WrongPlace, Wrong Time. you really expect that the characters are going down shit creek. I mean, if you actually name the movie that you kinda have to go all in and create a real Hell for those involved. Based on the cover art I got the impression that this was, more or less, a braindead action movie. And It starts out with action to be sure. There is this...

Perfect – Short by Jeremiah Kipp

Once again it’s time to write about a short film directed by Jeremiah Kipp. I don’t know how many I have written about by now but it’s been a few over the years. They all have in common that they are very good. They may not be Perfect (pardon the pun) but they all hold a very very high standard. Perfect is no exception to this rule. The acting is really good even it there...

Fetish Factory aka Cabaret of the Dead – 2017

With a title like Fetish Factory, a movie can be infinitely sleazy and get away with it. There’s no way that anyone can miss the sexual innuendos in a movie with that title. And, to be honest, that’s exactly why I was watching it. I don’t usually think that a movie gets better by merely sexual situations of striptease but there’s definitely a relaxing feel to it. You don’t have to think so much and...

Christmas Cruelty – 2013 – Norwegian horror is da shit!

If I were a horror filmmaker from Sweden and saw Norweigian Christmas Cruelty, I would be rather envious. I think we in Sweden at pretty good at police thrillers, that’s also pretty much all we do. At least when it comes to mainstream films. Because like in every other country there are always those who dare to challenge the (film)system and create something that is truly original. Christmas Cruelty is such a film. And it’s...
