Other Reviews from 2012 and earlier

The Beyond

Gregory J. Smalley @ 366 Weird Movies

  • Excerpt: This is Lucio Fulci at his very best, but Fulci at his best is about the equivalent of Dario Argento at his worst.

Beyond the Black Rainbow

Gregory J. Smalley @ 366 Weird Movies

  • Excerpt: Shamelessly allusive, sinfully trippy, ‘Beyond the Black Rainbow’ is a love letter to midnight movies of decades past, a hazy conjuration overseen by the guiding spirits of Stanley Kubrick, Ken Russell, and a thousand doped-up sci-fi dreamers, that somehow manifests its own unique vision.

Blue Sunshine

James Jay Edwards @ FilmFracture

  • Excerpt: Cinema Fearité Presents ‘Blue Sunshine’ – Where An Acid Flashback Causes More Than Just A Bad Trip

China Is Near

Kenji Fujishima @ The L Magazine

The Conspiracy

Daniel Lackey @ The Nightmare Gallery

  • Excerpt: Not likely to surprise the average viewer, but plenty entertaining on its own terms.

A Distant Trumpet

Dennis Schwartz @ Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews

Duel to the Death

Kenji Fujishima @ The L Magazine

Green for Danger

Roderick Heath @ Ferdy on Films

  • Excerpt: The early scenes of Green For Danger are a master class in setting up a complex interaction of plot strands and human elements. The mechanics are readily familiar, obeying the basic precepts of whodunit detective fiction—setting up a cast of suspects, affording them all the opportunity for murder, bringing in a canny detective to disassemble the enigma—but the quiet excellence of the characterisation and the sharpness of the dialogue quickly nudge the film out of mere generic efficiency into something ebulliently enjoyable.
