Posted by Bryan White | Friday September 6, 2013 | Reviews,Youtube

Posted by Bryan White | Friday August 30, 2013 | Reviews,Youtube

This week’s review takes a look at the black and white 50′s b-movie revival picture, The Ghastly Love of Johnny X, a musical about a gang of juvenile delinquents banished to Earth from their home planet. Not they’re raising hell on Earth, raising the dead and doing a lot of singing and dancing. The Ghastly Love of Johnny X stars Will Keenan (Tromeo and Juliet), Reggie Bannister (Phantasm), Kevin McCarthy (Invasion of the Bodysnatchers, UHF), Paul Williams (The Phantom of the Paradise) and Creed Bratton (The Office).

Suicidal Review: Hell Baby

Posted by Bryan White | Friday August 23, 2013 | Reviews,Youtube

This week’s review takes a look at the latest horror comedy, Hell Baby, from Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant of Reno 911 fame. The movie stars Rob Corddry and Leslie Bibb as an expecting couple that buys a haunted house in New Orleans and struggles to deal with the birth of their twin babies, an extremely horny and demented old woman as well as demonic possession. Before I get to the review, though, I tell you all about my latest podcast obsession, How Did This Get Made from comedian, Paul Scheer and friends.

Suicidal Review: The Soldier

Posted by Bryan White | Friday August 16, 2013 | Reviews,Youtube

This week we go back to the year 1982 when the United States and the Soviet Union were at each other’s throats and on the brink of nuclear destruction for James Glickenhaus’ ultraviolent James Bond ripoff, The Soldier, a movie with a plot so complicated that it’ll melt your brain.

Suicidal Review: Frankenstein’s Army

Posted by Bryan White | Friday August 9, 2013 | Reviews,Youtube

This week I review a movie I’ve been waiting a long time to see, Frankenstein’s Army by director Richard Rapphorst. This movie’s life began almost ten years ago as a Dutch horror movie called Worst Case Scenario before it all fell apart but rising from the ashes is this fun bit of survival horror. Before we get moving, though, I talk at length about the BBC’s announcement that Peter Capaldi is the 12th Doctor on Doctor Who and how this is affecting the Whovian community as well as taking a look at the trailer for Richard Griffin’s latest movie, Normal.

This week I give you the lowdown on the latest from Danish director, Nicolas Winding Refn, Only God Forgives, starring Ryan Gosling, a movie Rex Reed calls one of the worst movies ever made. Is it actually that bad? Watch and find out!

Before I get to reviewin’, though, three great short films came down recently that I’d like to share with you.

Suicidal Review: The Oily Maniac

Posted by Bryan White | Friday July 19, 2013 | Reviews,Youtube

This week we go back in time to 1976 in Hong Kong to have a look at a weirdo Shaw Brothers movie that has nothing to do with kung fu. This obscurity from the Shaw vaults, The Oily Maniac, is a revenge movie and a monster movie all in one and predates The Toxic Avenger by a few years. It is some utterly insane horror of the best b-movie variety but before I get into it, I take a few minutes to address the recent Lianne Spiderbaby plagiarism scandal and how it’s making assholes out of nearly every horror blogger I’ve encountered in recent memory.

Here’s the Impossible Funky article about Lianne Spiderbaby, by the way: http://impossiblefunky.blogspot.com/2013/07/who-does-your-girlfriend-think-shes.html

Suicidal Review: Detention

Posted by Bryan White | Friday July 12, 2013 | Reviews,Youtube

This week’s review is of the nutty as fuck movie mashup of John Hughes high school ballads, time traveling slasher movie, Detention, from director Joseph Khan. It’s a massive sugar rush of concepts, a Saturday morning cartoon stretched out the absolute limits of insanirty. If you’re not already taking Adderall, you might want to eat a couple just to keep up with this picture.

Here’s the trailer for Detention: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4PFz9gIKKM

But before I review the movie, I summarize a woeful encounter that I had with master of makeup, Tom Savini and how the unflattering article that I wrote about that encounter has become a bit famous as Tom is now going around the convention panel circuit talking about it. However, he gets a bunch of details wrong, and I set the record straight.

Suicidal Review: The ABC’s of Death

Posted by Bryan White | Friday July 5, 2013 | Reviews,Youtube

We’re back with our regularly scheduled program this week with a review of the anthology horror movie, The ABCs of Death from Drafthouse Films. This experiment in storytelling puts a letter of the alphabet in the hands of 26 directors with the directive to make a short film based on a word starting with that letter. It’s a great idea that doesn’t always work but it features the work of Nacho Vigalondo, Xavier Gens, Noboru Iguchi and Srdan Spasojevic just to name a few.

Dexter is also back this week for the premier of its final season and I talk a bit about the season premier.

Suicidal Reviews: American Mary & Miami Connection

Posted by Bryan White | Friday June 21, 2013 | Reviews,Youtube

This week’s episode presumes to give you the lowdown on two movies that a lot of people are/were talking about. With American Mary, from directors Jen and Sylvia Soska, I couldn’t help myself. So. Much. Hype. How are you supposed to resist that? So was the hype worth it? Watch the review to find out. Following that is a look at Drafthouse Films’ reissue of the completely forgotten and overlooked masterpiece of Tae Kwon Do insanity, Miami Connection, from director Y. K. Kim. Its tale of a rock band under fire from O-Town street gangs, a rival rock band and a motorcycle gang of cocaine dealing ninjas is a real mind melter.

This week’s music is from Dragon Sound, the band in Miami Connection.
