Filthy Review - 'Snow White and the Huntsman'

Snow White and the Huntsman (2012)

Review by Jude Felton

Walt Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is without a doubt an all-time classic film, and one that managed to instill fear into kids worldwide. This was thanks mainly to the evil Queen, who was determined to put an end to Snow White once and for all. Over 70 years later, and several more versions of the tale, and it is Charlize Theron’s turn to face the mirror to find out who is fairest of them all.

Filthy Review - 'Kotoko'

Kotoko (2011)

Review by Jude Felton

Many moons ago, around 1989/1990, I purchased Tetsuo: The Iron Man on VHS. It was directed by, and starred, Shin’ya Tsukamoto, and quite frankly it blew my mind with its industrial body horror storyline. Unfortunately, aside from one or two, I have not seen every movie Tsukamoto has made since, but I was very excited when Kotoko arrived in the mail. This time around the horrors have been moved from the body and instead rest within the mind of our protagonist, Kotoko.
