Summary=Seven multi-layered plot episodes make up this cancelled series from 1996. A dark and cleverly written series with the coldest character you’ll ever meet at the centre of the show. Unlike most series you’ll walk with this evil character and always end up rooting for him. For the most part it’s strong in script, direction and the Profit character, but begins to sag slightly in the latter episodes. Some superb commentaries make this DVD an excellent presentation of a series that should have been given more life.

Up until this point I’ve really liked the work of Luis Guzman… and I guess I still do. But as of right now I have absolutely ZERO respect for this higher-than-thou, non-professional, egotistical piece of shit. So what happened? A piece of footage from the set of the new Ryan … [Read More]
Title= Dead Alive
Summary= Directed by a young Peter Jackson, Dead Alive has been voted as the goriest movie of all time. A great movie for any lover of over the top violence and horror. Zombies, brains, dismembered body parts, kidney stones and a lawn mower. This flick has it all, plus it’s damn funny.
