"Bliss" Blu-Ray Review (Dark Sky Films)
Written by MrParka
Dark Sky Films brings Joe Bego’s anticipated 3rd feature “Bliss” to Blu-Ray. Joe Begos takes a dive into the L.A. art scene with his hypnotic, blood spattered, drug fueled vision. Dezzy (Dora Madison) is a struggling artist with a former drug problem. During an artistic dry spell she decides to dive back into the world of drugs to finish a commission piece. After a crazy night of drugs, sex, art, and blood she develops a crippling addiction.
At first glance people might think how cliché, a struggling artist story, but hold your judgements. “Bliss” isn’t a lazy, haphazard attempt at a film, it’s full of life and dangerous, manic energy. Dora Madison is phenomenal as the lead; she doesn’t hold anything back, her delivery is dead on whether it be long winded drug rants or the fits of rage and violence she lets take control of her body. Visually it's the best looking horror film to come out this year. Being shot on 16mm, the film has a grainy texture that recalls a grittier time in filmmaking. The lighting is perfect with tons of colors and trippy visuals that amplify the drug induced manias. When the blood flows, it flows like rivers; hitting walls and fountaining on top of bloody stumps. Some will make comparisons to Abel Ferrara’s “The Addiction”; it has some similarities ala becoming a monster in the art scene. But while the “The Addiction” is an obvious drug metaphor, “Bliss” doesn't bother even thinly veiling the metaphor for drugs. The strong supporting cast helps a great deal. The vets of the picture Abraham Benrubi, George Wendt, and Mark Beltzman all add a certain amount of enjoyment and their performances seem natural. The fresher faces, only in comparison to the former, include Jeremy Gardner who always does a solid job and Graham Skipper who is nearly unrecognizable and becoming one of my favorite modern day faces to spot.
“Bliss” is a must see and a great pick up by Dark Sky films. Joe Begos has come a long way and, like good directors, his films always get better. “Bliss” is a gory, beautiful statement on the art scene while coming across as personal without being preachy. A must own and one of the best films of the year.
A brilliant painter facing the worst creative block of her life turns to anything she can to complete her masterpiece, spiraling into a hallucinatory hellscape of drugs, sex, and murder in the sleazy underbelly of Los Angeles.

"Woman Chasing the Butterfly of Death" Blu-Ray Review (Mondo Macabro)
Like a kind of crazy cinematic ghost train ride, Woman Chasing the Butterfly of Death take us on a journey deep into the darkness of one man’s fears and fantasies. That man is Young-gul, a lonely and rather morbid student in late 1970’s South Korea. Narrowly surviving a murder-suicide attempt by a woman wearing a butterfly pendant, he next finds himself besieged by a seemingly insane bookseller who claims he can never die. Even after Young-gul burns the man’s body his skeleton comes back to taunt him. As if that weren’t enough, the poor student then finds himself the victim of a beautiful thousand year old woman (she looks about 25) who says she is hungry and wants to eat his liver….
The director, Kim Ki-young, was one of Korea’s most successful film makers. His 1960 production The Housemaid is now a recognized classic of world cinema. With this film he goes far beyond the bounds of the real and takes us into a world where anything seems possible, a world where a kind of dream logic rules. Almost impossible to summarize, the film is nevertheless insanely enjoyable. A real one of a kind production that opens our eyes to the limitless possibilities of cinema.

"Apprentice to Murder" Blu-Ray Review (Arrow Video)
WAS IT MAGIC, MURDER, OR MADNESS? In early twentieth-century Pennsylvania Dutch Country, young Billy Kelly (Chad Lowe, Highway to Hell) falls in with a charismatic "powwower" or folk magic healer, Dr. John Reese (Donald Sutherland, Don't Look Now), shunned by the rest of the community for his non-conformist beliefs. Together, they investigate the mysterious sickness that is blighting the area, which Reese believes to be the work of a sinister local hermit. But as the plague spreads and the wide-eyed Billy falls ever deeper under Reese's spell, are they doing God's work or the Devil's bidding? Also starring Mia Sara (Legend) and featuring a powerhouse performance by Donald Sutherland - reunited here with Don't Look Now screenwriter Allan Scott - Apprentice to Murder is a chilling and unforgettable tale of the macabre that blurs the lines between conventional notions of "good" and "evil".
