This TV-show for children is based on the first two novels of a 21-novel-franchise. A German-Canadian co-production, The Little Vampire features an impressive cast including Michael Gough and Gert Fröbe. […]
This second entry in the Subspecies franchise is very similar in style and tone to the first film. So if you enjoyed that first film, chances are you will also like Bloodstone. If – like me – you did not enjoy the first film, it is extremely unlikely that this sequel is going to turn you into a fan of the franchise. […]
This is the first Santo-film for me. It is a rather silly B-movie, but I expected worse. At least there are a number of beautiful shots in this film. […]
The Night Flier is a somewhat basic Stephen King adaptation, which benefits greatly from the focus on its anti-hero and the performance of Miguel Ferrer in that role. This mystery tale builds its suspense slowly, but steadily, and Ferrer keeps you interested throughout. […]
A Twilight parody that is at times amusing, but still entirely unnecessary. […]

I will remove this post after the deadline, keeping the front page nice and tidy 😉
A rather disappointing comedy that is very much a product of its time.
If you like Jim Carrey, you might find it interesting to see him in this early role.
If you like the ‘80s, you may find the music, clothing, and design in this film enjoyable.
If you are looking for a good comedy, you should stay far away from this film. […]
The second half of the Breaking Dawn story concludes the 5-film run of the Twilight franchise.
Breaking Dawn, Part 2 is in many ways more interesting than Part 1, but it still feels rather weak. […]
A well-made, well-acted film with a small, intimate story. This low-budget indie chronicles the crisis of a young man whose already difficult life appears to be changing for the worse, just at the moment as he meets a woman who seems to like him. Strongly recommended for all those who are not deterred by a slow pace. […]
As the story of Bella moves towards its finale, the franchise’s weaknesses accumulate. With Breaking Dawn, Part 1 being weaker than the previous Twilight films, the plot is often treading water, making this one of those films in serious need of a fast-forward button. […]
