Filthy Review - 'M is for Music'

M is for Music (2013)

Review by Jude Felton

Following on from the success of The ABC’s of Death, there is the inevitable sequel. And, once again, there is one letter up for grabs, where filmmakers can submit a short film and viewers get to vote on who should win. The letter this time around is M, and I have already watched a few submissions, of varying quality. M is for Music, however, is one that I have been excited about, as it was written and directed by L. Gustavo Cooper, who directed the excellent Velvet Road and the upcoming Copiii: The 1st Entry.

Filthy Review - 'Die! Die! My Darling!'

Die! Die! My Darling! (1965)

Review by Jude Felton

When you think of the film output of Hammer studios, the first thing that probably comes to mind is Dracula. Or, more specifically, Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing and gory, sexually charged gothic horror, and that would be quite reasonable. However, over the years the studio made many differing styles of horror, or thriller, flicks. Now, thanks to Sony Pictures Choice Collection, which is their manufacturing on demand imprint, you can now get your grubby little mitts on this little gem.

Filthy Review - 'The Amityville Trilogy'

The Amityville Horror Trilogy (2013) 
Review by Jude Felton

As far as I am concerned there were, and are, only three Amityville Horror flicks, and those are the three contained in this set. Sure, there are eleven kicking about out there, but the links get weaker and weaker; a possessed lamp? A dollhouse? Come on people, who green lights this shit? Anyway, let’s forget about those and focus on the three contained here.

Filthy Music Review - 'Critical Solution: Evil Never Dies'

Critical Solution – Evil Never Dies (2013)

Review by Jude Felton

Good evening, 1986! How the hell are you? Evil Never Dies, the debut album from Norwegian thrashers Critical Solution, could quite easily start off that way, and who knows, maybe their live shows do. Of course, I am jesting, but as soon as this slab of thrashing mayhem starts, you know exactly where the band is coming from.
