MINI MOVIE REVIEW: “Rabid” (1977)

This flick was written and directed by David Cronenberg, and was his first film with an actual budget.  It stars Marilyn Chambers –yes, that Marilyn Chambers — in her first mainstream movie, and she is actually quite good.  The fact … Continue reading

MINI MOVIE REVIEW: “The Atticus Institute” (2015)

Long-time readers of this blog know my love for found-footage films.  The Blair Witch project remains one of my favorite movies, and I get a shudder of joy every time I find another flick, be it Grave Encounters or any of … Continue reading
