The Hunger: The Complete First Season

Besides its name (and Tony and Ridley Scott as producers) the short-lived erotic horror anthology series The Hunger didn’t have much in common with the classic Bowie/Deneuve/Sarandon soft-porn vampire classic film of the same name. However, it sure had an interesting idea, and though the quality of the episodes is erratic, there are definitely some …

9 Songs

OK, everyone! Raise your hand if you are interested in seeing 9 Songs because of the musical performances of such hot bands as Franz Ferdinand, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, and The Dandy Warhols?

The Raspberry Reich

I can’t in good conscience rate The Raspberry Reich any higher than this, because it’s a terrible, terrible movie. Then again, it’s not really a movie, it’s a porno. Not only that, it’s a terrorism-themed gay porno, populated by left-wing extremists who say things like “Heterosexuality is the opiate of the masses!” in order to …
