Reviews of Classic Films
- Excerpt: Made in 1953 by three confident filmmakers, “Little Fugitive” is as much an invaluable filmic document of postwar New York as it is an enchanting incipient work of independent cinema.
- Excerpt: “Pandora’s Box” was a controversial movie at the time of its release. The movie can be construed as the first international LGBT film ever.

20 Years Later: Dumb and Dumber (1994)
- Excerpt: Cinema Fearité Presents ‘Donovan’s Brain’ – A Movie About A Man Possessed…By A Bodyless Brain
Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny
- Excerpt: When someone like me, who’s watched ‘They Saved Hitler’s Brain’ multiple times—voluntarily, not as part of a CIA experiment in breaking interrogee’s wills—tells you that ‘Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny’ is quite possibly the worst movie they’ve ever seen, you should take notice.
The Young Guns (1956)
- Excerpt: The 1956 western The Young Guns is essentially a cowboy capitalization on the juvenile delinquent fad. Russ Tamblyn (Twin Peaks‘ Dr. Jacobi) stars as Tully, the troubled son of a bad-to-the-bone outlaw.
