I know this has to come to an end very soon, but I still find myself traveling down this long stretch of road where all stops are really great films. Never before have I been on such a roll and I couldn’t be happier as a film fan and as someone who writes about these films for fun. The latest treat to cross my path is Joe Begos’ Bliss.

Unlisted Owner Review
It doesn’t happen often, but I am occasionally approached by filmmakers, offering me an opportunity to check out their work. I have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly at this point, so I am always open to give someone’s newest project a chance without much hesitation. This time around, it was director Jed Brian’s Unlisted Owner on the chopping block.

The Ice Cream Truck Review

The latest release worthy of your time is Mark Savage’s Purgatory Road [...]
Streets of Vengeance Review
I ran out of shelf space for my ever-growing film collection a long time ago. The more movies I amass, the higher my stacks grow. Because of this poor choice of organization, it’s very easy for me to misplace things. I do go digging from time to time and end up seeing a release or two that catches my attention. Tonight’s attention-grabber was Paul Ragsdale and Angelica De Alba’s Streets of Vengeance.

Truth or Dare Review
I’m not sure when I first learned of this film, but I’ve been looking for a copy of it ever since. Every so often, I’d search a couple of the usual spots for a new home video release — Amazon, eBay — to no avail. The thought never came to me to just go straight to the source, the director herself! After years of waiting, I’ve finally had the pleasure of watching Jessica Cameron’s Truth or Dare.
