2020, 92 min, Canada, Dir: Steven Kostanski

Indomitable Mimi (Nita-Josée Hanna) and her mild-mannered older brother Luke (Owen Myre) unwittingly revive a malevolent alien who happens to be buried in their backyard. The siblings name him Psycho Goreman (PG for short) and tame him with his own magical amulet, now in the possession of young Mimi, who forces PG to bend to her every childish whim despite his desire to destroy everything in existence. Elsewhere in the galaxy, PG’s cronies and captors catch wind of his reemergence and chart a course for Earth – and the bloodiest interstellar showdown this side of Gigax. Canadian cult filmmaker Steven Kostanski (THE VOID) kicks things into overdrive with painstakingly detailed world-building inhabited by even more painstakingly crafted creatures animated by all the classic tricks of the trade: puppetry, miniatures, stop motion, O.G. computer effects, and presumably gallons of liquid latex and blood. – Nicole McControversy

2014, Park Entertainment, 102 min, Canada, Dir: Matthew Kennedy, Adam Brooks

Blessed with endless nudity, wall-to-wall gore and a kick-ass soundtrack, this is the perfect late night movie! The world’s greatest editor (Adam Brooks) is reduced to cutting exploitation fare after he loses several fingers in an accident - and the finger of suspicion falls on him when actors in his latest film fall victim to a killer. This loving giallo homage from Winnipeg’s Astron-6 collective costars Udo Kier, Laurence R. Harvey and Tristan Risk.
