"American Horror Project Vol. 2" Blu-Ray Review (Arrow Video)
Continuing its mission to unearth the very best in weird and wonderful horror obscura from the golden age of US independent genre moviemaking, Arrow Video is proud to present the long-awaited second volume in its American Horror Project series co-curated by author Stephen Thrower (Nightmare USA: The Untold Story of the Exploitation Independents). Starting off with a little-seen 1970 offering from underrated cult auteur John Hayes (Grave of the Vampire, Garden of the Dead), Dream No Evil is a haunting, moving tale of a young woman's desperate quest to be reunited with her long-lost father - only to find herself drawn into a fantasyland of homicidal madness. Meanwhile, 1976's Dark August stars Academy Award-winner Kim Hunter (A Streetcar Named Desire) in a story of a man pursued by a terrifying and deadly curse in the wake of a hit-and-run accident. Lastly, 1977's Harry Novak-produced The Child is a gloriously delirious slice of horror mayhem in which a young girl raises an army of the dead against the people she holds responsible for her mother's death. With all three films having been newly remastered from the best surviving film elements and appearing here for the first time ever on Blu-ray, alongside a wealth of supplementary material, American Horror Project Volume Two offers up yet another fascinating and blood-chilling foray into the deepest, darkest corners of stars-and-stripes terror.

"My Nights with Susan, Sandra, Olga, and Julie" Blu-Ray/DVD Combo Review (Cult Epics)
Written by MrParka
Cult Epics presents the Dutch film “My Nights with Susan, Sandra, Olga & Julie” on Blu-ray/DVD combo for the first time ever. From director Pim de la Parra it’s no surprise the film explores murder, voyeurism, and promiscuous sex which are some themes explored in some of his previous films such as “Obsessions” (also available from Cult Epics).
The opening of the film showcases a brutal murder of an American tourist by Sandra and Olga which seems to be done out of rage, jealousy, and even boredom. Olga and Sandra soon return to their home, an isolated farm house shared with a handful of others. When new comer Anton shows up to escort Susan, the group’s matriarch, back to civilization the group's hierarchy begins to crumble and devious things are planned.
Instead of getting exposition and deep backstory on everyone, we learn who they are by their actions and relationships. The story moves along quickly while setting up its foreshadowing. The interactions between characters include strange voyeurism, seductions, and even a couple heartfelt connections. One of these seductions takes place the first night Anton stays at the house. The sex is causal without any attachment which is most certainty a reflection of the 70s culture in Amsterdam.
“My Night with Susan, Sandra, Olga & Julie” makes nice use of its isolated country location and the unique house most of the action takes place in. The actors weren’t shy about their bodies and the film sports full frontal nudity from both sexes as well as plentiful sex scenes. This seems to be a staple from Pim de La Parra.
A pair of oddball characters can’t go without being mentioned, Albert, for instance, refuses to leave a dark room that is lit with only one red bulb. He spies on Sandra and Olga as they make love and discuss their crimes. His entire existence is a major reason for keeping Susan where she is at, for fear of leaving could cause him great mental anguish and further isolation. Although Albert’s actions could seem repulsive to some, he has an aura of sympathy; almost as if he is a trapped victim and Sandra an extension of that entrapment due to her loyalty to him. The character of Piet is the most interesting. While being comic relief to a certain extent, she is also a reminder to the other characters about the murder when she shows up wearing the sunglasses of Sandra and Olga’s victim. Without her, the story would slog forward. By the end of the film Piet is still the same broken character we are introduced to in the beginning. However, her once comic demeanor has taken an ominous turn by having her commit the most memorable and horrific act in the film.
Cult Epics has presented a solid film that is equal parts thrilling as it is tantalizing. If someone is looking for a film with interesting human interactions, sexual explorations, and a dark and impactful ending than look no further.
Cult Epics Presents MY NIGHTS WITH SUSAN, SANDRA, OLGA & JULIE – Pim de la Parra’s last “Dutch Sex Wave” film.
Susan (FRANK & EVA’S Willeke Van Ammelrooy) lives in an idyllic farmhouse, along with the sex-loving youngsters, Sandra, Olga and Julie and the unstable voyeur Albert. A number of killings take place by the sex-vampires, the allegations however, go out to Piet (Flodder’s Nelly Frijda), the crazy woman on the other side of the ditch. A young craftsman, Anton (Hans van der Gragt), visits and gets surprised by the dangerous ladies.
MY NIGHTS WITH SUSAN, SANDRA, OLGA & JULIE was the last of Scorpio’s “Dutch Sex Wave” productions, directed by auteur filmmaker Pim de la Parra, masterfully shot in Techniscope by Marc Felperlaan (THE LIFT, THE NORTHENERS), featuring the last score by composer Elisabeth Lutyens (known for Hammer films and Amicus Productions), and with a screenplay co-credited to Harry Kumel (DAUGHTERS OF DARKNESS). Stay in and have a night out with these ladies of seduction!

"Deathgasm" Blu-Ray Review (Dark Sky Films) and "This Is Spinal Tap" Streaming Review with Thralls of Metal
In this hilarious and outrageous blood-soaked adventure, the members of a heavy metal band inadvertently open the gates to hell when they play a forbidden piece of sheet music.
The producers of Housebound and Starry Eyes bring you the most Metal action horror film of all time — Deathgasm! Metal-thrashing Brodie is an outcast in a sea of jocks and cheerleaders until he meets a kindred spirit in fellow metalhead Zakk. After starting their own band, Brodie and Zakk’s resentment of the suburban wasteland leads them to a mysterious piece of sheet music said to grant Ultimate Power to whoever plays it. But the music also summons an ancient evil entity known as Aeloth The Blind One, who threatens to tear apart existence itself. Their classmates and family become inhabited by demonic forces, tearing out their own eyes and turning into psychotic murderers…and this is only the beginning! It’s up to Brodie, Zakk and their group of friends to stop a force of pure evil from devouring all of mankind.
Produced in association with the New Zealand Film Commission and MPI Media Group, the hilarious and outrageous Deathgasm features an amazing original soundtrack of fist-banging metal and practical effects by Main Reactor (Evil Dead remake) to satisfy metalheads and splatter fans alike. Deathgasm will gush bodily fluids, rain limbs and tickle your funny bone, before tearing it out and giving you a stiff beating with it.
