We Will Miss You

Carrie Fisher, best known for her role in ‘Star Wars’ films, has passed away at the age of 60.

We also express our most sincere condolences to the families of George Michael, Garry Shandling, and my own family with the passing of Dawn Foster Pontrelli.

Courageous icons, each of them.

The scenes, the music, the comedy, and the strength of spirit are already sorely, sadly missed.

The picture is of my cousin, Dawn, who lost her eight year-long fight with cancer on Friday.

Our entertainers all passed on due to heart-related issues.

A sad Holidays, Flixnerds. Carrie Fisher, aka ‘Princess Leia’, Dawn Foster Pontrelli, Garry Shandling, and George Michael…thank you; for everything.

George Michael gives the music biz “The Finger” (doesn’t appear in his music video.)


Baskin. Nightmarish Turkish Horror.

Every once in a while, I stumble upon images that haunt. That defy.

Baskin Trailer
“Baskin” is a Turkish feature that, although it’s not treading any new plot lines horror film story-wise, manages to unnerve and disturb with imagery straight out of  Dante Algheiri himself.

Turkish cops, who are morally ambiguous, seem to enter into a hellish ritual to which the sons of Clive Barker and Rod Serling would have felt right at home with.

If I could “wash my brain” of the garishly designed set pieces and scenes that unfold…I would gladly do so.

See “Baskin” at your own risk. It’s on Netflix, Vudu.

Not for the weak of heart. A vision of Hell itself that inspires interest in, and trepidation of, what twisted vision might next await these low-budget horror maestros moving forward.

“Baskin” unnerves. 4/5 Skulls
