The expectations start pretty low for most TV movies, but for lovers of camp and cult, they can be extremely entertaining. Moon of the Wolf, however, is just barely worth watching. An adaptation from a novel with the same name, this film follows Sheriff Aaron Whitaker as he investigates the murder of the beautiful, young Ellie who is found mauled and murdered in Louisiana.
This movie is so unenjoyable that I have taken the liberty of formatting a drinking game for the readers; because that’s the only way I could see having a good time watching Moon of the Wolf.
The phrase “Well, that escalated quickly” came to mind a couple times during Here Comes the Devil. This Mexican-made chiller isn’t afraid to immediately show what a nasty piece of work it is, assuring from the outset that the “killer kids” premise one might assume from all the poster art is but a falsehood.
Bogliano has my eternal gratitude for resisting the temptation to embed his screenplay with cackling demon brats, opting to try bridging the gap between the more subtle and grisly aspects of horror instead.
Our newest contributor Adam Carl Parker-Edmondston reviews Ring of Steel (1994), directed by David Frost.
Now there is a plethora of arena style movies available for the film buffs consumption. If it is not Lou Ferrigno fighting for his life in The Cage then it is aliens fighting aliens in the 80’s schlock fest Arena or the classic Jean-Claude Van Damme action movie Bloodsport the genre is constantly looking for new ways for hulking man beasts to smack the crap out of each other. In Ring of Steel it takes the genre into a different approach from the more testosterone fist smashing against skulls films of old and throws in some sword fights for your money. Not just swords in fact they throw in a bit of kung fu for your amusement and just like the rabid crowd of rich viewers who watch the fights in the movie you to will be lapping it all up.
