    Eyewitness Murders: An Experiment in Reality Television

    ★★★½

    Definitely one of the most unique shot-on-video films I’ve ever seen. The first half of this is essentially hyper realistic camcorder interviews with sex workers, who answer dodgy questions and come off surprisingly natural in their roles. Eventually the creep interviewer/director finally snaps and things get violent and very, very weird. Unexpectedly uncomfortable, fairly believable and totally stupid all at the same time. Recommended!

    ★★★★★

    Genuinely disturbing and surrealistic backyard gore apocalypse culture video art. El Topo meets Deadbeat at Dawn, only far more gross and full of 90’s goth industrial vibes. Jim Van Bebber himself even pops up, bleeding, smoking, and howling everywhere. Features some impressive low budget special effects work and a soundtrack that includes a deathrock version of the Street Fighter theme. I loved it! How could I not?

    As soon as the farting dirt monsters appeared, I knew I was watching something special.

    ★★★★

    One of the most bleak and violent westerns of the 70's. The gore looks like something out of a H.G. Lewis film, bright red and rubbery, but it never makes the movie feel campy or cheap. It has a sense of dread like few others from it's era.
