    “No Escape” is right

    So I said to The Rev the other day—when I was still young and light-hearted—“I have two more Amityville sequels to go, plus the one they haven’t released yet.”

    Apparently I’ve been asleep at the switch:

    • Amityville Asylum (2013)
    • Amityville Death House (February 2015)
    • Amityville: Vanishing Point (April 2016)
    • Amityville Playhouse (April 2016)
    • The Amityville Legacy (June 2016)
    • The Amityville Terror (August 2016)
    • Amityville: No Escape (August 2016)
    • Amityville: The Awakening (aka “The One They Haven’t Released Yet”) (January 2017)

    It’s as if someone noticed I was getting close to finishing a franchise—“Put half-a-dozen pieces of low-budget crap into production, STAT!!”

    So right now I’m feeling a bit like this:

      The Good, the Bad, and the Muppets from Hell

      HELLO DOLLY

      A (cough) typically scary scene from 'Zapatlela'

      Following up on Lyz’s typically brilliant take on Child’s Play, it’s time switch gears a little to take a look at the ways in which Tom Holland’s groundbreaking film was interpreted, re-interpreted, re-re-interpreted and mis-interpreted by the various cinema industries in India…

      Child’s Play in India

      The four movies are:

      • Papi Gudia (1996), in which something was definitely lost in translation;
      • Mantra (2005), which gets a surprising number of things right for a movie nobody seems to have ever heard of;
      • Zapatlela (1993), which takes the story in a totally unexpected (and very silly) direction; and
      • Ammo Bomma (2001), in which Indian cinema turns to an Indian movie for inspiration… and fails to be inspired.
      Will Laughlin is the Braineater.

        Bah, humbug!

            DEAD SILENCE (2007)

            A lesser entry in the ventriloquist’s dummy sub-genre, Dead Silence at least makes up in quantity what it lacks in quality.

            We also take another look at the roots of this particular sub-genre, with The Great Gabbo (1929).

              The sexy side of gladiators

              The ArenaWhile the Roger Corman production The Arena may have had a promising premise – female slaves forced into gladiator fights – something went wrong during the actual execution.

                PUPPET MASTER III: TOULON’S REVENGE (1991)

                A prequel which contradicts pretty much everything we’ve been told so far about Andre Toulon and his puppets.

                .

                I have also revised and added screenshots to Puppet Master (1989), and transferred over Puppet Master II (1991).

                And because I roundly criticised the latter with reference to The Mummy (1932), I’ve transferred that over, too.

                [NB: The Puppet Master films are probably NSFW: there’s quite a lot of blood and a bit of almost-nudity.]

                    Deep End (1970)

                    It’s election day in America, so here’s a British film from a Polish director about sexual and ideological disillusionment.

                    DEEP END

                    deep-end2There’s a song by Peggy Lee called “Is That All There Is,” in which she wearily reflects on the mundane reality of most of the emotions and events humans consider milestones. Tragedy, love, loss, entertainment, and ultimately death. In every case, upon enduring and coming out the other side, she shrugs and simply wonders, “Is that all there is?” Her realization, the idea that the most important events of our lives often turn out rather mundane when you step back and think about it, would make a perfect theme song for Deep End, a film in which the promise of cultural and personal revolution turns out to deliver a rather drab reality.

                    Keith Allison is the ruthless overlord of Teleport City.
