• Chanbara Beauty 2: The Vortex

    Feb 28, 2015

    Thanks to a mind-numbingly dull story and some weak leading performances, ‘Chanbara Beauty 2’ somehow manages to suck all of the fun out of bikini clad zombie slayers.

  • Chaw

    Feb 28, 2015

    This slick Korean production offers a fair amount of rampaging animal attacks, goofy horror fun and dashings of gore to make it a decent monster movie.

  • Crazy Lips

    Oct 9, 2016

    ‘Crazy Lips’ exists as a curiosity piece for people who adore bizarro Japanese cinema infused with nonsensical plotting and an abundance of sleaze.

  • Cure

    Apr 30, 2018

    It does share some style and themes with Kurosawa’s bigger genre hit ‘Pulse’, but ‘Cure’ is a tighter wound and better executed film that lingers long after the final frame.

  • Dark Water

    Mar 5, 2015

    Like the majority of Hideo Nakata’s work, ‘Dark Water’ proves to be more of a psychological entry into the genre rather than an all out gore-fest.

  • Dead Sushi

    Mar 5, 2015

    Extremely silly, camp, surreal and gory, ‘Dead Sushi’ is a bonkers ride of flesh eating sushi, kung fu, flying squids, sushi sex (!) and a daughter’s quest to earn the respect of her father.

  • Deadball

    Mar 5, 2015

    Not a total strike out but could have been a whole lot more fun, and funnier, with a little more energy injected into it.

  • Death Bell

    Mar 6, 2015

    ‘Death Bell’ is certainly not the best the genre has to offer, but it is a harmless little frightfest that has a few hints of ‘Saw’ and ‘Battle Royale’ thrown in.

  • Dial D For Demons

    Apr 26, 2018

    ‘Dial D for Demons’ is a modest but effective Hong Kong ghost story and generates just enough suspense to keep one on edge until the finale.

  • Don’t Look Up

    May 7, 2018

    The film is not without its flaws, inclusive of a sometimes-confused narrative structure, but it’s worth a look against its widespread negative reaction for long-time fans of the director.

  • Dororo

    Mar 8, 2015

    Great characters, action and design make this an excellent fantasy adventure which harks back to the fun time fantasies such as ‘Willow’, ‘A Chinese Ghost Story’ and, yes, even ‘Krull’.

  • Dr. Lamb

    Mar 8, 2015

    Despite the occasional bloody highlight, ‘Dr. Lamb’ is a tough film to recommend as it often feels like little more than a collection of brutal murders.
