Paris, Texas (1984) – Wim Wenders

Harry Dean Stanton and Dean Stockwell headline as brothers in the next recommendation from the Great Movies – 100 Years of Film book following my screening of Thelma & Louise. Featuring a fantastic score by Ry Cooder the film is a look at a shattered American dream as Travis Henderson (Stanton) having been missing for…

Ordet (1955) – Carl Theodor Dreyer

The next film from the What Else to Watch category of DK Canada’s The Movie Book following my screening of The Passion of Joan of Arc is another Dreyer film, and it is becoming more than evident to me that he was fascinated by the ideas of religion. Ordet follows the trials and tribulations of…

The Day of Wrath (1943) – Carl Theodor Dreyer

DK Books’ The Movie Book continues to let me explore the works of Carl Theodor Dreyer, as I dive into the 1943 film, The Day of Wrath. This one is on the What Else to Watch list following my screening of The Passion of Joan of Arc. Just like Arc, there is a lot of…

We Are Still Here (2015) – Ted Geoghegan 

  Coming out today from Anchor Bay, available on both Blu-Ray and DVD is this film that is bound to be a divisive one for the horror community. If you’re a gore hound, love your jump scares, or just have a short attention span and a need for instant gratification, this may not be the…

Echoes (2014) – Nils Timm

  Releasing today from Anchor Bay is Echoes, a film that was an official selection of both the New York City International Film Festival and the FilmQuest Film Festival where it garnered awards for best actress, best director and best screenplay. This well-produced and acted supernatural thriller ends up being fairly predictable, but its pacing and acting balance out a…

The Doctor (Troughton), Jamie (Frazer Hines) and Victoria (Deborah Watling) find themselves in London, being menaced by robotic yetis and the Great Intelligence again in this six-part story written by Mervyn Halsman and Henry Lincoln. The story ran from 3 February to 9 March, 1968, and saw the return of Travers (Jack Watling) from The…

The White Queen (2013)

  Today, Anchor Bay Canada releases Philippa Gregory’s lavish and sumptuous interpretation of the War of the Roses comes to life in this Starz/BBC co-production that is a gorgeous rendering of visuals, story and actors. Based on a trio of novels, The White Queen, The Red Queen and The Kingmaker’s Daughter, the ten episode miniseries,…

A Haunting At Silver Falls (2013) – Brett Donowho

Anchorbay sent a long a copy of A Haunting at Silver Falls for me to take a look at for its release this week. I like how Donowho approached it, aiming to make it more of a supernatural thriller as opposed to a “boo! scared you!” horror film. And it would have worked, if one…

The Others (2001) – Alejandro Amenabar

The 101 Horror Movies list is coming to an end, there’s like 8 left, 7 now! But not to fret, I was tended to during Christmas, and very shortly while the 101 Sci-Fi Movies list continues, we’ll be adding the 101 Action Movies to the rotation, as well as a slew of films from the…
