Filthy Review - 'Return to Nuke 'Em High Vol.1'

Return to Nuke ‘Em High: Vol. 1 (2013)

Review by Jude Felton

You have to admire Lloyd Kaufman and Troma. You might not like either, but there’s no denying that they are an ongoing force to be reckoned with, within independent cinema. I grew up renting the likes of The Toxic Avenger, Surf Nazi’s Must Die and Class of Nuke ‘Em High, back in my youth. And, whilst I loved some, I totally loathed others. Regardless, these were movies with outrageous titles, even more outrageous content and whether they were produced in-house or were acquisitions, they weren’t easily forgotten.

On April 1st, Death Metal legends, Massacre, will return after an 18 year absence with a brand new album. The album is entitled Back from Beyond, and will be reviewed on these very pages over the coming weekend, and features original members Rick Rozz on guitar (ex-Death/Mantas) and Terry Butler on bass (ex-Death/Six Feet Under), as well as Ed Webb on vocals and Mike Mazzonetto on drums. Recently we had the honor of Rick Rozz taking time out to answer some questions for the Lair. So, read on my filthy friends!

Filthy Review - 'Easy Money: Hard to Kill'

Easy Money: Hard to Kill (2012)

Review by Jude Felton

It’s a strange old world when it comes to foreign language films getting a Stateside release. Sometimes they get the treatment, whereas sometimes they seem to be an afterthought, with an eye set purely on making some cash from the inevitable remake. The Easy Money, or Snabba Cash, series of films falls somewhere in the middle of these, especially if you like to watch your movies in Hi-Definition.
