Filthy Review - True Nature

True Nature (2010)

Review by Jude Felton

It’s funny how movies attract your attention. There’s the tried and trusted blanket previews and billboards etc. from the bigger companies, but when it comes to more independent cinema there is generally the self-promotion route, which I am all for. Sometimes you’ll see the same thing over and over again, as films compete in a crowded marketplace, until quite frankly you get bored of it. And in my case I quickly lose interest. Then there are the little gems you come across purely by chance, and True Nature is one of them.

Jamie Kennedy and WWE's Edge team up for Bending the Rules

There's no denying that the WWE is an incredibly popular company, with its shows Raw and Smackdown bringing in great viewing figures each week, so it is no surprise that more and more of the wrestlers are finding there way into the movies, through WWE Studios.

Filthy Review - Martha Macy May Marlene

Martha Macy May Marlene (2011)

Review by Jude Felton

Martha Macy May Marlene, aside from being a mouthful of a film title, was another case of a film having a limited theatrical release and not playing anywhere near me when it was released last year. Am sorry but I am not driving two hours to see a movie. Well, ok I might in certain situations, but that’s not the point. Anyway, since I didn’t get a chance to see it on the big screen it has been somewhat of a long wait for me, especially with trying to avoid any online spoilers. Fortunately I have been fairly lucky with regards to this and went into the movie knowing only the bare minimum, the same bare minimum I will share with you, with regards to the plot.

(Incredibly) Filthy Review - Dear God No!

Dear God No! (2011)

Review by Jude Felton

Not so long ago I found myself dealing with Nuns of the nude persuasion, which wasn’t an altogether horrific experience if I must say so myself. In the opening scenes of Dear God No! we get assaulted with Nuns in a far less comfortable predicament. Suffice to say that they don’t fair too well, which would be a mild understatement, and this really sets the tone for the entire filthy movie.

Filthy Review - Rabies

Rabies (2010)

Review by Jude Felton

To say that I never thought I would be reviewing a horror flick that was made in Israel would be a mild understatement. Saying that though, the world of horror is ever expanding and reaches all corners of the globe now and there is quality coming at us from every direction. So when I hear people complain about the state of modern horror I simply say to look a little farther afield for your fix, as some of the best recent horror has come from the most unlikely places. Either that or wait for the inevitable remake and then complain about it. I digress though, yes Rabies was made in Israel and no, there isn’t a crazy Hebrew Cujo to be seen.
