Time travel, skeleton warriors, heroic fantasy tropes upended and shaken till the lint drops out of their pockets… of course the film also known as Evil Dead 3 fits into our bailiwick!
Join Rob, Clive and CycloMedia as they tease out what makes Army Of Darkness such a great movie for Halloween. Because when you’re travelling the universe at trans-luminal speeds, it’s always October 31st somewhere…
Outer space is all well and good, but all the cool kids know that inner space is where it’s at. Rob and Clive take a look at the Ken Russell adaptation of Paddy Cheyefsky’s Altered States, and come to the conclusion that the greatest discovery of all is the ability to love…
Here’s a taste of the wild visual invention at play in Altered States. In this scene, Professor Eddie Jessop takes native hallucinatory agents in a field trip to South America. The resulting trip is… unsettling.
Who doesn’t love a giant monster movie? Rob and Clive certainly do. Factor in a storming script from the mighty John Sayles, sturdy direction from Lewis Teague and a 36 foot long alligator called Ramon, and you know you’re in for a treat.
This one’s got bite.
Lookee! The whole thing’s on the galactic hyperTube!
People have a lot of fond memories of the cult dark fantasy, starring Gary Cole as the demonic sheriff of a small South Carolina town. Does it deserve its reputation? Rob and Clive take another look at the strange tale of the people of Trinity, SC.
Mon Dieu! Rob and Clive peek into the world of French SFF, with a nose around Les Adventures Extraordinaires de Adele Blanc-Sec. A crazy steam-punk mash-up, part Indiana Jones, part Amelie, part Tintin, with a wink to Melies. Mummies! Pterodactyls! Bringing people back from the dead! It’s all in here!
We apologise in advance for the ‘Allo ‘Allo-style dodgy French accents.
