Orange County Hardcore Scenester – Review

August 31, 2012

Unless you were there, chances are the pillars of the Orange County hardcore scene of the ’90’s don’t ring a bell like their East Coast counterparts do. Lucky for you, filmmaker Evan Jacobs was there, and he brought his video camera.

House of Flesh Mannequins – Review

March 16, 2012

A bizarrely interesting mindtrip for fans of the outlandish. Acting is stiff and awkward, but very entertaining. The rapid-fire outrageousness is worth a look.

Father’s Day – Review

February 17, 2012

The glorious poster art promises great things. Forearm-sized pistol barrels, bloody chainsaws about to get licked, heaving cleavage, and daisy dukes.

X – The Unheard Music – Review

January 27, 2012

X is the coolest band ever. From the twisted poetry of Exene and John Doe to the steely-eyed perpetual smile of Billy Zoom to a drummer named D.J. Bonebrake.

Thankskilling – DVD – Review

November 11, 2011

Spawning the quotables “Gobble, Gobble, motherf#%@ker” and “Nice tits, bitch,” this is a low budget movie that’s more an attempt at comedy than a horror film.

Pagan Metal: A Documentary – Review

October 10, 2010

Turisas, Korpiklaani, TYR, Finntroll, Leaves Eyes, and others are universally nice, even as Bill Zebub drags the questioning into his predictable banality.

Metal Retardation – Review

April 1, 2010

Being interviewed by Bill Zebub is enough to melt anyone’s patience. A testament to the tolerance of Peter Steele, George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher, King Diamond.

Goth Kill – Review

April 1, 2010

Wild Eye Releasing lowers the budget bar to pocket change with Goth Kill, a cheapo horror thriller that makes Blair Witch look like Avatar.

Iggy Pop – Lust For Life – Review

September 1, 2009

This documentary carries a buncha footage from 20 years ago with Ig, some choice Stoogeliness, and interview footage with guitar player Ron Ashton. It’s great.

D.I. – The Suburbia Sessions – Review

July 1, 2008

Practice space run through shot live and unedited by the Flipside crew. You may already know “Richard Hung Himself.” (Slayer rocked it on Undisputed Attitude.)

Punk’s Not Dead – Review

March 1, 2008

A really good movie about some specific fallout from the P-word. Well shot, nicely edited, thoughtfully put together, a buncha nice interview stuff appended.

Linda Linda Linda – Review

February 1, 2008

Four Japanese girls in a band are set to perform at their high school’s festival when one of the girls is injured and can no longer play. Controversy ensues.
