Rudyard Kipling's Mark of the Beast

It's no beauty.


Rod Lott
Rudyard Kipling's Mark of the Beast is unlike any film I’ve ever seen. Before that works you into frenzied anticipation, please note that’s only because it has the most convoluted DVD menu in history.

The Sweeney

Get nicked.


Rod Lott
Not only is The Sweeney one of the best TV-to-film adaptations in history, but quite possibly the best adaptation of a TV series you’ve never heard of ... unless you’re British.

H.P. Lovecraft’s Cool Air

Ice it.


Rod Lott
H.P. Lovecraft’s Cool Air is really Albert Pyun’s Cool Air. The notorious director of the aborted Captain America and the should’ve-been-aborted Kathy Ireland vehicle known as Alien from L.A. is up to his usual inert tricks. It shows from the start, which forces viewers to read six title cards in two long minutes.
