The Significance of Horror Sequels

Sequels can really be a hit or miss, and are very rarely better than they’re predecessor. However, there are some Hollywood gems that break this stigma and exceed the original. A prime example of a sequel that is better than the original is V/H/S 2, the found-footage anthology of terrifying installments from various directors. Although the first film was revolutionary for the horror genre, providing plenty of original

Under The Skin Review

It Just Might Get Under Your Skin. 

At first glance, Under the Skin appears to be a classic science fiction tale; an alien comes to earth from an unknown planet, inhabits the body of a human, and wreaks havoc. Upon viewing, however, it is clear that director Jonathan Glazer’s latest project is anything but traditional.  Under the Skin is an exploration in light and color, of visuals and sounds,

Review – Adopt A Sailor

FlixFling contributor,  Alexandra Gibson reviews Adopt A Sailor Sailors file off of a naval ship.  Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra singing “...the Bronx is up and the Battery’s down...” pops into my head.  Later, On the Town is criticized horridly, which irks me, since I love that movie and most stupid musicals like it.  But that’s off topic. I’m talking about Adopt A Sailor, a 2008 film about a bourgeoisie New Read More

Review – Submarine

FlixFling contributor, Alexandra Gibson reviews Submarine Submarine is the directorial debut of Richard Ayoade, who the geekier of readers will remember from “The IT Crowd” and “Darkplace.”   It is an autobiographical coming-of-age set in Wales, and follows Oliver Tate as he learns about love and loss. Oliver Tate is, as are many of his indie-protagonist peers, an overly articulate, utterly unique young man in a community so backwards, its members have ostracized Read More

Review – Murder!

FlixFling contributor, Alexandra Gibson reviews Murder! Alfred Hitchcock’s Murder! is an example of all the pieces fitting together, but the completed puzzle is still a little lopsided.  The film is about a young aspiring actress who is caught red-handed standing over the murdered body of her rival.  She is whisked off to prison and promptly sentenced to death.  After the verdict is passed, one juror, an actor himself, reconsiders his vote Read More

Review – Rainbow Valley

FlixFling contributor, Alexandra Gibson reviews Rainbow Valley In college, I took this class that was, in part, about the evolution of the American West.  In the class, we discussed the era of the cowboy and the bandit and how it was romantic, but clashed quite clamorously with progress.  If you want to get serious about it, Rainbow Valley is about the death of the Wild West due to progress.  If you Read More

Review – The Lady Vanishes

FlixFling contributor, Alexandra Gibson reviews The Lady Vanishes And yet again, the film directed by Hitchcock is the best one I’ve seen in quite some time.  The Lady Vanishes surpasses even the half dozen other early Hitchcock’s I’ve watched on FlixFling.  This film was simply wonderful.  The bulk of the action takes place on a train speeding through Europe.  Before the train leaves, we meet a cast of characters whose humor Read More

Review – Sword Of Lancelot

FlixFling contributor, Alexandra Gibson reviews Sword Of Lancelot Sword of Lancelot is a retelling of the classic Arthurian story of Guinevere and Lancelot's torrid affair.  Personally, I have always loved Arthurian stories -- the magic, the chivalry, the gratuitous violence.  This particular version, however, I did not love.  It would make a stupendous drinking game; it does not make a good movie. The thing that is wrong with this movie, the thing Read More

Review – Beat The Devil

FlixFling contributor, Alexandra Gibson reviews Beat the Devil When I read the description for Beat the Devil, I could hardly believe it.   The film stars Humphrey Bogart and Peter Lorre and was directed by John Huston.  The last time I saw these three names together, I was watching The Maltese Falcon and it was awesome.  Twelve years after making the noir classic, they reunited for Beat the Devil, a noir satire Read More

Review – Abbott & Costello’s Jack and the Beanstalk

FlixFling contributor, Alexandra Gibson reviews Abbott & Costello's Jack and the Beanstalk What an education in classic comedy I’m getting!  Last week, I watched my first Laurel and Hardy and now onto Abbott and Costello!  Jack and the Beanstalk is a retelling of the classic tale with the humorous styling of Abbott and Costello. The film begins with Abbott and Costello acting as babysitters for a precocious little boy.  Costello sits down Read More

Review – The Flying Deuces

FlixFling contributor, Alexandra Gibson reviews The Flying Deuces After watching The Flying Deuces, I have dedeuced (heh, get it?) that Laurel and Hardy are similar to The Three Stooges; they are like anchovies – you either like them a lot or you don’t at all.  I, apparently, am not going to order an anchovy pizza anytime soon.  Nonetheless, I can certainly understand why so many people love Laurel and Hardy. Their film Read More

Review – The Skin Game

FlixFling contributor, Alexandra Gibson reviews The Skin Game While The Skin Game sounds like a film that I shouldn’t admit to have watched in polite company, it is actually the exact opposite.  The phrase “the skin game” refers to dirty antics that can take place during a hardened feud or disagreement between two parties.  The movie The Skin Game is a 1931 Hitchcock film about industrial progress, social change, and deep Read More

Review – A Star Is Born

FlixFling contributor, Alexandra Gibson reviews A Star Is Born When you think A Star is Born, you may think of the film starring Judy Garland, or the later Barbara Streisand movie.  Indeed, Judy and Babs pop into my mind when I think about A Star is Born, but you mustn’t neglect the original 1937 version starring Janet Gaynor and Fredric March. A Star is Born is another story of the Hollywood game Read More

Review – The Painted Desert

FlixFling contributor, Alexandra Gibson reviews The Painted Desert The Painted Desert starts, as so many Westerns do, with two cowboys riding through the desert.  They come across a ransacked carriage, its inhabitants, dead or alive, are nowhere in sight.  Along with some pots and pans, the only thing left behind is a baby boy. The cowboys, Cameron and Holbrook, take the baby in as their own.  Later that day, after arguing Read More

Review – Blood And Black Lace

FlixFling contributor, Matthew Bussy reviews Blood and Black Lace It’s incredible, and somewhat uncomfortable when you think about it, how filmmakers can make human deaths look so beautiful on camera. Dario Argento’s horror classic Suspiria, for example, is utterly revolting but every time a character dies the scene is brightly colored and gorgeous to watch. That’s the same case with Mario Bava’s Blood and Black Lace, a classic slasher pic that Read More

Review – Black Sunday

FlixFling contributor, Matthew Bussy reviews Black Sunday Black Sunday (which is also known as The Mask of Satan) is one of the most visually gorgeous horror movies of all time (and it’s in black and white!). It has the vibe of a Tim Burton Gothic horror tale involving curses, witches, and zombies. Burton himself has even said that Black Sunday is his all-time favorite horror movie. Anyone can see the movie’s Read More

Review – Them!

FlixFling contributor, Matt Bussy reviews Them! Them! (and yes, it needs to always have an exclamation point when it’s being referenced) is a classic black and white B-movie about giant killer ants. When the giant, very fake-looking ants are onscreen the movie is entertaining. When they’re off-screen, it’s quite dull. We’ve seen movies about giant spiders but ants? Are they really that scary? I was a crazy nature child and would Read More

Review – Creature From The Black Lagoon

FlixFling contributor, Matt Bussy review Creature From The Black Lagoon In the olden days Universal Studios was renowned for making monster movies. The Wolf Man, Dracula, Frankenstein, The Phantom of the Opera. The list goes on and on. The four I just mentioned are perhaps the most famous but a fifth one, Creature from the Black Lagoon, is usually mentioned a lot when film historians/professors discuss the history of the Hollywood Read More

Review – Nosferatu

FlixFling contributor, Alexandra Gibson reviews Nosferatu Nosferatu is the original cinematic representation of a vampire.  It is the tomb from which crawled Buffy, Angel, Twilight, and the Vampire Diaries, though it may be difficult to see the resemblance.  Nosferatu is the 1922 adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, which entangled the stories of Jonathan and Mina (here changed to Nina) Harker, Van Helsing, bug-eating minions, and the legendary vampire himself. Upon hearing that Read More

Review – The Adventures Of Ozzie and Harriet

FlixFling contributor, Alexandra Gibson reviews The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet was a long-running TV show starring “America’s Favorite Family,” The Nelsons.  From 1952 to 1966, The Nelsons, the archetypal American nuclear unit graced TV screens across the country.  The adventures that Ozzie and Harriet have take place in the home or very close to it.  They consist mainly of teenage shenanigans between brothers/best friends Read More

Review – A Farewell To Arms

FlixFling contributor, Alexandra Gibson reviews A Farewell To Arms If A Farewell to Arms were about 45 minutes longer, it would be termed an epic love story.  As it is, it leaves me wanting more, wishing that intimate parts of the couple’s relationship were given more space.  Nonetheless, it is a beautiful story of timeless love with great performances, especially from male lead Gary Cooper. This film takes place during World War Read More

Review – Of Human Bondage

FlixFling contributor, Alexandra Gibson reviews Of Human Bondage In most cases, when characters seem confused about the direction their lives are headed, they drop what they are doing, quit the jobs their parents wanted them to get, and go on journeys of self-discovery, often moving to Europe or becoming artists.  In Of Human Bondage, the main character does exactly the opposite.  Played by the sometimes dashing, sometimes whiney Leslie Howard. When Read More

Review – In The Land Of Milk And Money

FlixFling contributor, Jordana Lipsitz reviews In The Land Of Milk And Money There is a pretty real truth in this world that most people ignore and that is that milk is really, really disgusting. On the Richter Gross Scale it’s a level 7.8. That’s a thing. Look it up.  So it stands to reason that In the Land of Milk and Money (2004) would also be a strangely gross flick.  And Read More

Review – His Private Secretary

FlixFling contributor, Jordana Lipsitz reviews His Private Secretary On one hand, I like old movies and John Wayne. On the other hand, His Private Secretary (1933) is a really bad movie. There was honestly very little appeal to it. The movie had pretty mediocre production quality and the story line was pretty, I’m just going to say…meh. I was unimpressed and mostly bored.   I can’t quite put my finger on why Read More

Review – House On Haunted Hill

FlixFling contributor, Matt Bussy reviews House On Haunted Hill Take my word for it: House on Haunted Hill won’t scare you. It should certainly entertain you though, that is, if you’re a big fan of utterly campy, old black and white horror films. You might be thinking of the silly 1999 remake with Geoffrey Rush, Taye Diggs, and Ali Larter. This is the original one starring Vincent Price, the famous horror Read More

Review – Night Of The Living Dead

FlixFling contributor, Matt Bussy reviews Night Of The Living Dead Night of the Living Dead is a classic for two reasons: it’s the first real zombie horror movie and the first successful low-budget horror movie. It cost $114,000 to make, featured unknown actors, and was filmed not in a big Hollywood studio but the small town of Evans City, Pennsylvania. It’s also been remade two times (one of which was in Read More

Review – Ghost Adventures

FlixFling contributor, Matt Bussy reviews Ghost Adventures Just to be clear, you can’t watch any episodes of the Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures on FlixFling. Before the series debuted in 2008, the ghost hunters/stars of the paranormal show, Zak Bagans, Nick Groff, and Aaron Goodwin, made an hour and a half long documentary film. It was finished in 2004 and won the Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary at the 2006 NYIIFVF Read More

Review – His Name Was Jason: 30 Years Of Friday The 13th

FlixFling contributor, Matt Bussy reviews His Name Was Jason: 30 Years Of Friday The 13th Jason Voorhees has had a pretty rough life. He’s appeared onscreen over twelve times. He’s been killed and then brought back to life in every way UNhumanly possible. He’s been sent to outer space. He’s battled Freddy Krueger. And obviously, he’s killed A LOT of people in every way possible. In addition many of the women Read More

Review – My Favorite Brunette

FlixFling contributor, Alexandra Gibson reviews My Favorite Brunette In the beginning of My Favorite Brunette, we find Bob Hope in an unlikely place – prison, awaiting execution on death row.  Immediately, my interest was piqued.  When reporters arrive to hear his story, Hope’s Ronnie Jackson tells us the whirlwind tale of how he wound up on the chopping block.  It’s filled with lust, deception, intrigue, and more than a few pitfalls Read More

Review – The Dick Van Dyke Show

FlixFling contributor, Alexandra Gibson reviews The Dick Van Dyke Show As I watched The Dick Van Dyke Show, I could not help but think of AMC’s Mad Men.   Rob Petrie and Don Draper, both dapper men in the media business, are products of the urban work life/suburban home life split of the 1960s.  Both have pristine wives and adorable children at home.  Perhaps Mad Men depicts what that lifestyle was really Read More

Review – Film Geek

FlixFling contributor, Jordana Lipsitz reviews Film Geek Film Geek (2005) was actually a pretty good watch. It is the story of Scotty Pelk, an incredibly dorky movie-obsessed young lad who makes people so uncomfortable he is fired from his job at a video store. He has a little bit of trouble adjusting until he befriends Niko (Tyler Gannon), gets really drunk with some guys, and starts getting more hits on his Read More

Review – American Graffiti

FlixFling contributor, Jordana Lipsitz reviews American Graffiti I have a problem with coming of age stories. More specifically, coming of age stories that involve the last night of high school and the crazy characters involved.  Knowing that American Graffiti was the mother of all coming of age stories, I was not very excited to watch it and was expecting to hate it immediately.  But, I was wrong. I didn’t hate Read More

Review – Across The Bridge

FlixFling contributor, Jordana Lipsitz reviews Across The Bridge Across the Bridge (2005) has the steadfast quality of a student film though it is instead a foreign film by an adult director, Denis Cviticanin. Trying to be socially conscious, as most student films are, it looked at the strife in Belgrade and the emotional sorrow it caused. Meanwhile the sound quality was horrible and the score sounded like something from an Read More

Review – Number 17

FlixFling contributor, Alexandra Gibson reviews Number 17 My admiration for Alfred Hitchcock grows each time I see one of his early films. Made in the 1930s in England, they all seem to have small budgets and very limited equipment lists.  And yet, because of his direction, they are still wonderful.  Take for instance, Number 17. Number 17 is essentially about a group of crooks search for a stolen diamond necklace.  Of course, Read More
