Watch Creepy Clip For Jennifer Lynch's Chained

No comments: Links to this post
She is certainly a 'daddy's girl' Jennifer Lynch as her latest film Chained is showing her daddy David Lynch has certain been a 'father figure' to her inspiring twisted wholesomeness.

This Friday will see the limited cinema release of Chained starring Vincent D'Onfrio as Bob the serial killing taxi-driver, but he is a serial killer with a difference. One of his victims had a boy and he raises him not as a father/ son relationship but to be his protege calling him rabbit instead of Tim his correct name, but will he follow his new found daddy's steps?

Below is a new creepy clip which shows the new family set up is not as happy and dynamic as it should be.


Chained is set for a limited release in UK cinemas on 1st February with the film been released on DVD& Blu-Ray from 4th February. Chained stars Evan Bird, Jake Weber and Julia Ormond.

The Night Porter Review

No comments: Links to this post

















★★★1/2☆


The Night Porter is a very notorious cult classic that came out in 1974 directed by Liliana Cavani (Ripley’s Game). It’s a film that hasn’t age well in the proceeding years and tries to be a art film when it’s just a piece of exploitation cinema.

The story is about a Night Porter called Maxamilian (Dirk Bogarde) at a Vienna hotel, he has a dark secret he was a SS officer. He had a sadomasochistic relationship with a girl Lucia at a concentration camp, it’s suggested that she was Jewish but it’s never mentioned. Their history is all told in flashback though out the film. They rekindle their relationship many years later against a backdrop of a trial Max is about to face about his war crimes. However he has been meeting with old Nazi chums who are destroying evidence to get away clean. They eventually find out about the girl and want her dead so they hid away in a hotel room.

The film much of it’s time, it’s one of those 70s “art” films that on the edge of being a sex film or a serious art film for example I am Curious series. The film fails are both however it’s a rather interesting film about a woman despite what Max did to her still feels connected to him. Which is a rather daring story to tell. However it’s overly long would have worked a lot better a 90-minute thriller than it’s slightly less than 2 hour running time. Way many long shots of them stuck in this bedroom.

The acting by the 2 leads are quite good especially Dirk Bogarde pull off the complex role of a man who hates his past but also wants parts of it back. Charlotte Rampling’s performance as the girl Lucia is despite her great acting in flashback sequences is pretty bland, she just lying around a hotel room not doing a whole lot. The supporting cast of his Nazi chums are quite effective as well.

Overall it’s a fascinating if somewhat pretentious attempt to tell a fascinating serious story. However the Dirk Bogarde really saves it from being a bad film. It’s overly long and I rarely say that about a film. I could trim at least 20 minutes out and it would work better. It’s worth checking out but it’s not very shocking as some people may suggest.

Pentathlon Blu-Ray Review

No comments: Links to this post


















★★★1/2
Forget Chariots Of Fire, hell, forget the actual Olympics - the only sporting feature you need to watch this Summer is the recently remastered 1994 action flick, Pentathlon.
After winning the Olympic Gold in Seoul, German pentathlete, Eric Brogar (Dolph Lundgren) goes on the run from his tyrannical neo-Nazi coach, Heinrech Mueller (David Soul). Several years later, Brogar, now working in a grotty Los Angeles cafe decides to get his life back on track and start training again. However, the arrival of Mueller and a group of American neo-Nazi sympathisers resurrects old conflicts.

Pentathalon stands out because it is not your typical nineties action film, the sporting angle taken by Bruce Malmuth's (Hard To Kill) script proves a fresh and original concept. The focus is less on ass-kicking (although there is still plenty) and more so on the broken athlete Eric Brogar trying to reclaim his former glory. This allows for a glimpse at the little seen, sensitive side of Dolph Lundgren, who proves to be utterly convincing. Let's face it - Dolph is a man who could do anything and Olympic pentathlete is just another of his many talents.
There is something completely watchable about Pentathalon - possibly that it keeps its tongue planted firmly in its cheek. The concept of a former Olympic superstar flipping burgers in a meagre local diner says it all. The relationship between Brogar and the owner of the diner (Roger E. Mosley) allows for some comic fun as well with Mosely and Lundgren having  a believable and amusing camaraderie.
However, the main fun of Pentathlon is David Soul's scene stealing performance as sinister sports coach meets Neo-Nazi terrorist, Heinrech Mueller. Seeing the man who patrolled the streets as Hutch or crooned Silver Lady to adoring audiences, as a scheming Nazi makes for an unforgettable watch. Soul spits his words out with angry hatred and commands the screen in this deliciously evil performance - reminiscent of Gregory Peck's turn in The Boys From Brazil.

Pentathlon was never going to revolutionise the action genre, but it is nonetheless memorable nineties action that proves a thoroughly entertaining way to spend an hour and a half. Lundgren's pitch-perfect performance alongside David Soul's over-the-top villain and an original concept makes Pentathlon well worth a watch.

They Trained Him, But Can't Stop Him, Dolph Lundgren's THE PENTATHLON

No comments: Links to this post



















With Olympic arriving in London next month why not get into the Olympic spirit with  Dolph “The Expendables” Lundgren goes to the Olympics and kicks plenty of neo-Nazi butt along the way in this sport-themed action-thriller., THE PENTATHLON for the first time on Blu-Ray.

After winning Olympic Gold in Seoul, East German pentathlete Eric Brogar (Lundgren) takes the opportunity to escape his past and the demands of his tyrannical coach, Heinrich Mueller (Soul), and flees to the freedom of the West with the help of a beautiful American athlete. 

Several years later, Mueller has given up coaching and turned his dubious talents to neo-Nazi terrorism and a series of attacks on German government officials. Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, Brogar has slipped into an alcoholic depression and ekes out a meagre living working at a local diner. Still angered by Brogar’s betrayal and driven by a need for revenge, the psychotic Mueller first targets Brogar’s father before flying to LA to finish off his former star athlete once and for all. 

In an attempt to get his life back on track, Brogar has begun training once more, this time at the woodland retreat of his former girlfriend. But the arrival of Mueller, who has since teamed up with Brogar’s arch rival Jurgen Reinhardt and a group of neo-Nazi sympathizers in the US, means Brogar will soon have to turn his skills to something more than winning medals. 

In a rare action movie based around the key pentathlon disciplines of shooting, swimming, fencing, horse riding and cross country running, Dolph does it all and unsurprisingly adds a healthy dose of awesome ass-kicking to the mix. Making the experience all the more interesting is the fact that, in a bizarre instance of life reflecting art, the film actually led to Dolph being selected to serve as manager of the real-life US Modern Pentathlon team for the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta.


The Pentathlon will be released July 30th thanks to Anchor Bay, the film also stars David Soul (Starsky & Hutch) and Renee Coleman (A League Of Their Own; After School) directed ny Nighthawks helmer Bruce Malmuth.

UK Trailer For LAST VICTIM

No comments: Links to this post
Anchor Bay Entertainment have sent me the new UK trailer for LAST VICTIM (aka Dear Mr Gacy, in USA) which will be released in UK on March 7th, 2011.
You love your serial killers then you cant beat one of the ultimate ones John Wayne Gacey played by William Forsythe with the movie based on the true life tale of the sadistic pyscho and Jason Moss a young man who grew an obbession of serial killers with this movie based on his memoirs.
The movie will be released on DVD/Blu-Ray and check out the synopsis and the offical uk trailer after the break...

he Last Victim is a gripping true story from the producers of Monster about an 18 year-old college student who dares to confront notorious serial killer John Wayne Gacy – triggering a deadly game of cat and mouse and a journey into the darkest realms of the mind. Starring William Forsythe (Devil’s Rejects, Rob
Zombie’s Halloween) as John Wayne Gacy, this Anchor Bay Entertainment title is an adaptation of The Last Victim, the memoirs of Jason Moss, (played by Jesse Moss – Final Destination. The Uninvited), a law student fascinated by serial killers who formed a relationship with Gacy during the killer’s last year on Death Row. Sadly, the title of the book took on a poignant new meaning when Jason Moss committed suicide in June 2006. At the time of his death, he was a practicing criminal defense attorney.
