Review: ‘TIME WARP: THE GREATEST CULT FILMS OF ALL-TIME VOLUME 2: HORROR AND SCI-FI’ available today on digital and VOD

TIME WARP: THE GREATEST CULT FILMS OF ALL-TIME VOLUME 2: HORROR AND SCI-FI 

The greatest cult horror and science fiction films of all-time are studied in vivid detail in the second volume of Time Warp. Includes groundbreaking classics like “Night of the Living Dead,” and “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” and sci-fi gems such as “Blade Runner,” and “A Clockwork Orange.” 

Volume 2 is significantly shorter in runtime than Volume 1, coming in at 83 minutes. That being said, the amount of backstory and insider info is aplenty. I am a huge horror and sci-fi buff and I found myself hearing a plethora of great new stories from the cast members of some of my favorite films. Cast, crew, and critics discuss the highs and lows of their original releases and how they influenced what was yet to come in cinema history. They get into the political subtext and how some of the most iconic dialogue and choreography were improvised. The first half tackles horror while the latter half talks about sci-fi classics. Tom Savini gives us some fantastic insight into the set, makeup, and stunts from Romero‘s Dawn Of The Dead. Bruce Campbell‘s perspective on what made Army Of Darkness a later hit is cool. Wait until you find out what has happened to the house in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre! Malcolm McDowell talking about A Clockwork Orange will damn near make your year. Despite the length and the mouthful of its title, Time Warp: The Greatest Cult Films Of All-Time Volume 2: Horror and Sci-fi is just as fun as its predecessor. I cannot wait to dive into Volume 3: Comedy and Camp coming in June. Check out the trailer below. Volume 1 and 2 are now available on Digital and VOD. Genre fans of all ages and predilections will adore this series.

Review: Now on VOD, ‘Creedmoria’ has quirk for days.

SYNOPSIS
Candy injects the “fun” in her dysfunctional life. When your brother is found by a neighbor naked and drunk, you’re stuck with a caveman of a boyfriend, you have a dickhead boss, and the madness of everyday life competes with your mother’s need to appear “normal,” you have to peek between the cracks to find the warm rays of hope. But, maybe normalcy is just a construct for other people. And, maybe breaking out of the institution is more important than fitting in. After years of trying to save those she loves, it’s time for Candy to save herself.

Creedmoria is like the lovechild of John Waters and Baz Luhrmann during the Strictly Ballroom years. With hilariously over the top, almost caricature archetypes, this film has everything you’d want in a dysfunctional family comedy set in the 80’s. Hyper-saturated fashion and a kick-ass soundtrack, not excluded. Terrific performances from the entire cast lend to loving these characters even if some of them are meant for you to hate. Oh, and real-life Creedmoor psychiatric institution residents wandering in and out of scenes adds another layer of weirdness. They remind me of The Transylvanians from The Rocky Horror Picture Show for some odd reason and contribute another dimension of, “Sure, why not.” to the plot. But the script does tackle a ton of real issues; narcissistic parenting, bullying, misogyny, sexual orientation, addiction, just to name a few. That being said, it certainly doesn’t stop Creedmoria from being a fun coming of age flick with some serious sass and laughs.
