  • The Mangler

    The Mangler


    A dank, oppressive sweatshop and an unhinged Robert Englund staring down from the catwalk through his good eye while the Mangler gets a-manglin'. And if you thought a demon-possessed laundry folding machine was wild, just wait until you see the ice box.

  • Basket Case 3

    Basket Case 3


    Ups the trash factor from the previous installment but never stoops to the raunchy depths of the original. A fun, but minor piece of slimy fluff from Henenlotter.

    War for the Planet of the Apes


    Shines through the murk of the summer blockbuster slog. A star example of impeccable filmmaking on almost every level. Burning bright and bleak.

  • Big Trouble in Little China

    Big Trouble in Little China


    Carpenter throws everything at the wall and all of it sticks. Martial arts, monsters, and a wise-cracking maverick in a Mack truck. This movie is magic, and I'm not even talking about the sorcery.
