La Dosis

C.H. Newell @ Father Son Holy Gore

  • Excerpt: La Dosis is a taut, ethical thriller about euthanasia, playing God, and masculinity.

Monster Seafood Wars

Gregory J. Smalley @ 366 Weird Movies

  • Excerpt: If silly monster battles are your thing, ‘Monster Seafood Wars’ will satisfy you well enough. But it seems like the kind of ground others have trod before, and I’m confident that Minoru Kawasaki is still capable of more imaginative moviemaking than this.

Sanzaru

C.H. Newell @ Father Son Holy Gore

  • Excerpt: Xia Magnus crafts a compelling story that’s a dark family drama alongside a horrific Southern Gothic with highlights of Filipino culture.

Survival Skills

C.H. Newell @ Father Son Holy Gore

  • Excerpt: Survival Skills shows how even the so-called ‘good apples’ policing our streets can’t be good because the system they work for is rotten from the core.
