Beast Within (aka Hunter’s Moon) (2019, USA / Canada) Danse Macabre DVD Review

Beast Within (aka Hunter's Moon) (2019, USA / Canada) Danse Macabre DVD Review

When will I learn that a great premise doesn’t necessarily mean a film will be great or even good. Just like the enjoyable Werewolves Within, the similarly titled Beast Within is a werewolf whodunit that references the party game. However, that is where the similarities end. The acting in Beast Within is woeful. There is no emotion, no chemistry, and no believability in most of the characters. When the werewolf is finally revealed, that particular character becomes a bit more three-dimensional and believable. I don’t know how much of the film’s issues lie with the bad writing or directing.

“It’s no longer a game.”

VHS Forever? Psychotronic People (2014, UK) VIPCO DVD Review

VHS Forever? Psychotronic People (2014, UK) VIPCO Blu-ray Review

Unless one is of a certain age it might be difficult to relate to VIPCO’s feature-length release of the documentary VHS Forever? Psychotronic People. It harkens back to the dawn of serious movie watching, especially those of a subversive and transgressive nature. The documentary manages to capture the thrill of so many cinephiles to be able to access obscure, forbidden and strange films, but at the same time, shows the paranoia and very real legal concerns operators of video stores faced during the era.

“We think censorship is idiotic!”
