Liam Neeson will kill you when 'Taken 2' hits Blu-ray and DVD

The man with a particular set of skills is back, when Taken 2 hits Blu-ray combo pack and DVD on January 15th from 20th Century Fox. The first Taken was more fun than it had any right to be, in fact I thought it was damned good fun and am looking forward to catching the sequel. It will come with the Unrated version, as well as the previously seen Theatrical cut, and a good amount of extras.

Two new stills from horror anthology 'S-VHS'

With the anthology V/H/S all set to hit Blu-ray and DVD next week (December 4th) from Magnet, a couple of new stills have emerged from the sequel, entitled S-VHS. With directors such as Gareth (The Raid) Huw Evans and Jason (Hobo with a Shotgun) Eisener working on the film, you can be sure that this will be one sequel to keep an eye open for. As of right now the film does not have a distributor, but will be seeking one when it debuts at this years Sundance Film Festival.

Filthy Review - 'Silent Night'

Silent Night (2012)

Review by Jude Felton

Director Steven C. Miller’s third film to see the light of day this year, after The Aggression scale and Under the Bed, is described as a ‘loose remake’ of the 1984 parent-scaring slasher flick Silent Night, Deadly Night, and that’s a pretty fair statement. The 2012 incarnation has the same basic premise, a killer dressed as Santa dispatches numerous folk, but aside from that it’s a new bag of gifts; this is a slick new slasher that I thought was rocking good time for the most part.

Filthy Review - 'Southern Comfort'

Southern Comfort (1981)

Review by Jude Felton

It was not until I was doing a little research for this review that I realized how many damned cool movies director Walter Hill was responsible for. Aside from movies such as The Warriors and 48 Hours, he also directed two of my all-time favorites; the macho man-fest Extreme Prejudice and the superb Western, The Long Riders, which is also another mans’ movie. With Southern Comfort he also crafted another incredibly masculine movie, Hell; Walter Hill put more testosterone into his films than your average frat party. These were men’s’ movies pure and simple. Like it or not, that is the truth.

Filthy Review - 'Men in Black 3'

Men in Black 3 (2012)

Review by Jude Felton

A full 10 years after Men in Black 2, and the team of Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones and director Barry Sonnenfeld are back for the third Men in Black movie, and I have to ask whether or not it was needed. Who really cares? There are many movies that are made that aren’t needed, but I am sure that many of them aren’t anywhere near as much fun as this one. Yes, I am looking at you Mr. Lucas.

Filthy Review - 'The Day'

The Day (2011)

Review by Jude Felton

Upon doing a little research on The Day, I discovered that it is in fact the middle segment of a planned trilogy. Whether this is true or not, and whether it will see the light as a full trilogy remains to be seen, but after watching the film it does make sense as there is plenty to be expanded upon in this post-apocalyptic tale.
