Siblings Dolly (Dana Day) and Ted (James Fitzgibbons) – as well as Ted’s new girlfriend Sarah (Claudia Peyton) – are visiting their mother Cathy (Helen Benton) and her man’s man of a boyfriend Gary (Terry Brown) at their house in the scenic forests of Wisconsin. What should be a jolly and festive gathering starts off rocky with both Cathy and Sarah sharing bad vibes with one another and I’m not just talking about that usual distrust of in-laws! Shaky starts aside – it’s business as usual as the gang partake in the normal family bonding rituals such as hunting a single Bambi together when uncle Peter (Peter Spelson) pays a visit. Thankfully, Bambi lives to fight another day when the screamish

Darkness On the Edge of Town | Slamdance Review - Slamdance 2015

Set against the foreboding backdrop of Ireland's fog-soaked, rolling moors, Darkness On the Edge of Town blends classic western tropes with the bleak moodiness of noirish murder mysteries. So much of the story is told in the shadows and darkness, which seems to be a reflection of Cleo's perception; all the while, Ryan playfully utilizes cinematic reference points -- such as a couple of allusions to Bo Arne Vibenius' Thriller: A Cruel Picture-- to fully flesh out his vision.

  • CinemaRetro
Cinema Retro has received the following press release:

In 1911, Sweden established the world’s first government board of film censors, provoking a century-long war against filmmakers that outlived two World Wars, Communism and the sexual revolution.

This Tuesday (May 31) at Brooklyn Rod & Gun author Daniel Ekeroth delves into the arcane film culture of his homeland when he shares some of his favorite trailers in celebration of the release of his book Swedish Sensationsfilms -- a fiery retros...pective of over 200 banned and cult films by directors ranging from Ingmar Bergman to Boarne Vibenius, produced during the golden age of Swedish sin.

Sex and Politics: Jack Stevenson's "Scandinavian Blue: The Erotic Cinema of Sweden and Denmark in the 1960s and 1970s"

  • MUBI
Rarely has half a year's wait been so richly rewarded. Early in August 2009 Jack Stevenson had promised a review copy of his forthcoming book "Scandinavian Blue," to be published by McFarland & Company, and dealing with a highly Ferronian subject: "The Erotic Cinema of Sweden and Denmark in the 1960s and 1970s." Still, I had nearly forgotten about it, when it finally arrived this March: But whatever the reasons for the delay, I'm sure they were good. Because as it turns out, Stevenson's book is not just an exhaustive and long-overdue study of a chapter in film history that by now mostly lives as a cliché of semi-trashy sixties liberation memorabilia, but doubles as one of the most timely political essays around.

Which is not to say it doesn't deliver as a connoisseur's chronicle of erotic esoterica, delving deeply into the more demented side of sexually charged filmmaking. Entire chapters are
