The Girl with All the Gifts (2017)

With a glut of zombie movies on the market, this one, based on a novel by Mike Carey, at least tinkers with some fresh ideas, and, like the best zombie movies, its strengths are based on human themes. read more...

Stake Land (2011)

The press materials for Jim Mickle's Stake Land reference author Richard Matheson, but only insofar as it includes a kind of cross between vampires and zombies, as Matheson employed for his great novel I Am Legend. Otherwise, Stake Land starts off as a kind of very serious, dreary version of Zombieland. A naive teen (Connor Paolo) joins up with a grizzled hardass called "Mister" (Nick Damici, who co-wrote the script), who teaches the youngster how to kill the ravenous beasties. They keep traveling north, hoping to run into some kind of haven, and pick up the usual batch of misfits (including Top Gun's Kelly McGillis) along the way. It's all fairly typical. What sets this movie apart, however, is the appearance of a bizarre religious cult that could be more dangerous than the monsters. If only it had gone farther...

Rabid (1977)

David Cronenberg's underrated second film continues to develop his theme of body manipulation. After a motorcycle crash, a woman (Marilyn Chambers) is whisked away to a nearby plastic surgery center for an emergency operation. When she recovers, she develops a weird vampire-like growth under her armpit that feeds on human blood. read more...

The Brood (1979)

In this early exploration of body manipulations by David Cronenberg, murderous, unearthly children appear to be the work an evil psychologist (Oliver Reed). Samantha Eggar stars as a woman who places herself in the doctor's care, neglecting her daughter and husband (Art Hindle). It's uncannily perceptive for a so-called exploitation horror movie, digging right to the center of the human love/horror reaction to our offspring. This is one of the great filmmaker's best early films, and a stylistic -- if not budgetary -- breakthrough. MGM/UA's DVD comes only with a trailer, but the price certainly won't break the bank. read more...

Cronos (1993)

Guillermo Del Toro has become one of the most interesting of the new auteurs. Over the course of just seven films in 18 years, he has established a definite, fluid, rich visual style and specific pet themes, not to mention a singular fascination and enthusiasm for a certain kind of genre film. He also manages the nearly impossible feat of juxtaposing personal comic book movies (Blade II, Hellboy) in Hollywood and more ambitious works of art (The Devil's Backbone, Pan's Labyrinth) elsewhere. read more...
