"Blood Paradise" DVD Review (Artsploitation Films)
An oddball thriller about a beautiful writer who goes to calm countryside but only to find strange characters & danger.
Unpredictable and at times drenched in sly humor, this thriller is Patrick von Barkenberg's film debut. Reeling after her latest novel flops, best-selling crime writer Robin Richards (Andréa Winter) is sent by her publisher to the Swedish countryside to regain inspiration. Instead of relaxation, she comes across an assortment of peculiar and possibly dangerous characters, including her driver and most obsessive fan, his explosively jealous wife, and the progressively more unhinged man who owns the farm. The beautiful and stylish young woman soon discovers just how dangerous these oddballs may be. Think "Green Acres" as directed by Jordan Peele.

"Sixteen Tongues" DVD Review (Sub Rosa Studios)
From Scooter McCrae (Shatter Dead), comes "an Uncompromising Film that Adds Several New Wrinkles to the Science-Fiction / Cyberpunk Imagination" -Fantasia Film Festival; "If You're Looking for Something Truly Transgressive, SIXTEEN TONGUES should test the Threshold of Even The Boldest Viewer" - Moriarty, Ain't It Cool News. Adrian Torque is a cop who has lost more than half his skin to a searing explosion, his twisted flesh replaced with all the tongue meat recovered from the event. Ginny Chin-Chin is a killer-for-hire on the hunt for the doctor who blessed her with a clitoris under the fold of each eyelid. Alik Silens is a 'datastreem' hacker on a seemingly endless search for the identity of her brother's killer. And now, inside a rundown S&M franchise called the Sappho Hotel, these three lives are about to intersect in a Triple-X maelstrom of vengeance-fueled sex, bullets and borrowed blood.
