Forgotten Friday Flick - Do You Remember 'Runaway Train' From 1985

May 22nd, 2015 12:15pm EDT
Forgotten Friday Flick - 1985 Action / Drama 'Runaway Train'
Since character actor Eric Roberts was so humble as to grace the latest horror outing "The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence)" with his fine performance presence, it felt right to rehash the very best of Roberts via his powerful past work – welcome to Forgotten Friday Flick! Amidst some very intense early films (see "Star 80!") and fabulous collaborations (see him with Mickey Rourke in "The Pope of Greenwich Village!"), this week’s choice is by far Robert’s finest hour. It’s a harrowing drama that shows what happens when human conflict and mechanical difficulties collide. There’s simpl...

'The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence)' Has Arrived!

With his gaunt expressive face and guttural German delivery, Laser’s misguided man of medicine was the epitome of dirty tongue-in-cheek fright fun and made the twisted ...

So I bought the box set and started listening to her music. And initially I was terrified, because this music is so different, her voice is so di...
