Teddy Bomb An infectiously goofy, no budget, high concept lark, the locally produced Teddy Bomb makes no pretentions that it’s a great film, but it’s certainly one that wants to have fun alongside like minded people who get the joke. Think of a Godfrey Ho and Sam Raimi produced live action reboot of Big Hero […]
Kingdom Come There’s no reason for a film like Kingdom Come to exist except to pad out the resumes of the people involved in its production. It’s a cynical, low budget rip off made with no conviction, style, or originality whatsoever. It’s the kind of film people make for the sake of making something, not […]
Queen of Blood Although best known as Fangoria’s Editor-in-Chief, Chris Alexander has now turned out a pair of quietly unnerving and thoughtful horror films of his own over the past couple of years. Queen of Blood – a follow-up to Alexander’s previous film Blood for Irina – is a minimalist, slow burning, ultra-low-budget vampire yarn […]

With his directorial debut Rosewater, Jon Stewart shows great promise as a storyteller, but needs practice as a director.
Tapia Possibly the heaviest film playing at this year’s festival (which, given the subject matter overall, really says a lot) comes in the form of this documentary from Executive Producer 50 Cent about boxing legend Johnny Tapia. Raised on the streets of Albuquerque, New Mexico and dubbed “the babyfaced assassin” in the ring, the former […]
No-No: A Dockumentary In the early 1970s, no pitcher had more pure talent than Pittsburgh Pirate Dock Ellis. His style wasn’t pretty, but he won a lot of games for his ballclub. The problem: he didn’t really remember most of them because he was either drunk or high at the time, most infamously pitching a […]
Gabriel Rory Culkin delivers one of the best performances of the year as a troubled young man rapidly losing touch with reality after his release from a mental hospital in Lou Howe’s effectively chilling psychodrama. Instead of heading directly home to his still frazzled, but loving mother (Deirdre O’Connell) and his judgemental older brother (David […]
Part horror film, part mobile game, the creators of Voyeur attempt to look at new forms of storytelling and user content.
The Irish comedy Life's a Breeze live up to it's name by being as lightweight as possible.
