Subtitled Saturday Movie Review – Last Supper

A man brings a woman into his home and slowly begins caressing and massaging her. Bringing a pleasure to her that we can feel by the look on her face. The sexual arousal between the two of them is palpable. Seductively he tells her that he wants to eat her and she agrees. Moments later [...]

Subtitled Saturday Movie Review – Troll Hunter

Trolls have been part of myths and fairytales for as long as tales have been told. And yet they have managed to stay out of the mainstream movie spotlight (for the most part) until recently. Troll Hunter takes the myths and fables and plants them squarely in modern day society.

Movie Review – Rammbock: Berlin Undead

Rammbock get props for using a theme often overlooked to drive its zombie story. Love; the sense that its protagonists don’t just struggle to live: but to live for something. Rather than fleeing for the sake of survival – our heroes survive for the sake of love. Be it found, lost, or found again.

Movie Review – Dead Snow

First off I want to say categorically and emphatically that this is NOT a zombie movie. Anyone wants to debate that with me, bring it on. When I first watched this movie I sat down to watch what Entertainment Weekly billed “One of the 25 best zombie movies of all time.” And because of that [...]
