Film Review: BRUISER (2000)


BRUISER ** France / Canada / USA 2000 Dir: George A Romero. 99 mins

Romero’s only non-zombie movie after THE DARK HALF – another horror story about identity loss – was this heavy handed contemporary satire partially salvaged by a strong, rare leading performance from Jason Flemyng. He’s the downtrodden, young executive of a publicity agency leading a miserable existence only brightened by fantasies about murdering fellow passengers during his numbing morning commute.

Film Review: AMERICAN GOTHIC (2017)


AMERICAN GOTHIC ** USA 2017 Dir: Stuart Connelly. 73 mins

Writer-director Stuart Connelly’s genre-bending movie is yet another cinematic spin on Grant Wood’s 1930 painting of the same name. Although it also hinges on the machinations of a demented rural couple, it isn’t nearly as much fun as the John Hough’s 1980’s AMERICAN GOTHIC, a warped slasher movie with Rod Steiger and Yvonne De Carlo.

Hot on the heels of their black and white Noir THE BLACK GLOVES, director Lawrie Brewster and writer Sarah Daly are back with another slice of Gothic horror.

AUTOMATA, the fifth feature from the duo, is a lavish affair with a vibrant colour palette that harks back to the giallos of Argento and Bava. The film tells the story of an antiques expert sent to authenticate a three-hundred-year-old clockwork doll with a notorious history, the 'Infernal Princess'. He soon comes under its corrupting influence, and, along with his stepdaughter Rose, finds himself the target of dark forces beyond his control...
