Father's Day a film of a different nature

Father’s Day is not a title for a film reflecting on what most of us remember as a special day for dads. What we have is a dark revenge movie going off into the deep crevices, of Grindhouse movies with a the combination of 80s late-night TV and a perverted sense of humor which makes this film something truly unique. If that is your flavor for film and you are a Troma fan,you will love this movie. How Astron-6 did this film on such a limited budget is mind-blowing. After the cast s...

Well, the riot that is the Abertoir Horror Festival has now finished - and what fun it was. In all honesty this has been the most stressful year for us to organise although this kind of made us all stronger as we were prepared, and knew how to react, if anything during the festival went wrong. Overall it ran smoothly - the first day went without a hitch although we had a bit of a problem on Thursday when 2 of our Mystery Grindhouse Film event guests, Nico and Joe, couldn't make it to... is back online

user - the erratically-pumping online organ of the original Psychotronic Film Society - is back online and ready to rumble! For 25 years, the Psychotronic Film Society has been entertaining and enlightening the Chicago area on the subject of weird, incredibly strange, bizarre, grindhouse, cult movies with regular and irregular screening meetings, public events and periodicals. For the past 15 years, we've taken this cinema circus to the world via the PFS website at www.psychotronic....

Winter and Venice

Well ‘summer’ is nearly over here in the UK which means children are going back to school and Winter looms (so wolly hats and mittens are in order), but what also happens during this time is that lots of Film Festivals take place, including some of the biggies; Toronto is first followed by Venice at the beginning of September, (oh and ofcourse Abertoir in November! ;) ). Further to my previous blog, I’m very excited about Venice for several reasons 1. Machete is opening th...

The Film Festival Doctor is looking forward to Venice

Well, I'm not exactly going to the Venice Film Festival but I'm more excited about this one because I can't wait to hear how well Machete goes down as it looks like its going to be something special.   Plus I'll be following this one very closely as Quentin Tarantino, my favourtie film maker and topic of my phd study, is on the jury I wonder what he will decide should win the Golden Lion... exciting times ahead. :) Marco Muller and Tarantino!   ...

Quentin Tarantino Biography

Film career After Tarantino met Lawrence Bender at a Hollywood party, Bender encouraged Tarantino to write a screenplay. In January 1992, Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs hit the Sundance Film festival. The film garnered critical acclaim and the director became a legend in the UK and the cult film circuit. Reservoir Dogs was a dialogue-driven heist movie that set the tone for his later films. Tarantino wrote the script in three and a half weeks and Bender forwarded it to director Monte Hellman. Hel...

Busting at the seams with outrageous action sequences, deliciously over-the-top characters and gross special effects, Robert Rodriguez's (Sin City, Once Upon a Time in Mexico) GRINDHOUSE PRESENTS PLANET TERROR explodes onto DVD as a two-disc extended and unrated edition on October 16 from Genius Products LLC. and The Weinstein Company. Rose McGowan ("Charmed," Scream, The Black Dahlia) and Freddy Rodriguez (Bobby, "Six Feet Under") give stunning performances as go-go girl-tur...

"Death Proof - A Grindhouse Film" by Quentin Tarantino

With the in-Competition presentation of Death Proof – A Grindhouse Film, the Cannes Festival is reunited with one of its most loyal directors, none other than Quentin Tarantino. After bursting onto the scene in 1992 with Reservoir Dogs, winning the Golden Palm for Pulp Fiction two years later, and then presenting his Kill Bill – Volume 2 here in 2004, the very year when he officiated as President of the Jury, this year the American filmmaker is traveling with some especially original reels i...


Tuesday, April 17----Perhaps one of the many lessons to be learned from the hemmoraging of money (and reputation) that is GRINDHOUSE, the Tarantino-Rodriguez-Weinstein Brothers box office fiasco, is that if you are going to do a sleazy, low-budget exploitation film, don't spend $100 million dollars on making and marketing it. The Weinsteins, usually known for this business savvy, way overreached on this one....not fully understanding that the film geeks obsessions of their tyro directors is ...
