Motion Picture Purgatory: TERMINAL CITY RICOCHET (1990)

Canadian B-film usually favours pastiche over straight-ahead punk, but not when it comes to TERMINAL CITY RICOCHET (1990), the weird west-coast rock movie from one of Canuxploitation’s favourite homegrown directors Zale Dalen. Rick Trembles returns with another site-exclusive MOTION PICTURE PURGATORY in which he pours over the film’s strange dystopian sci-fi mediascape and pumps his fist for featured punk legends D.O.A. and Jello Biafra.

Motion Picture Purgatory: GOLDEN APPLES OF THE SUN (1973)

Rick Trembles returns with a site-exclusive MOTION PICTURE PURGATORY on one the strangest films to ever come out of Canada, the 1973 fever dream GOLDEN APPLES OF THE SUN (1973). Bloody dream sequences, hippie philosophy, kidnappings, Vietnam angst and allegories galore collide in this relatively genre-free genre film.  Don’t forget: if you liked Trembles’ previous work for our site, he’s gathered all previous strips from 2012 to 2013 in a cool new mini-comic, MINI MOTION PICTURE PURGATORY!

Motion Picture Purgatory: ELECTRA (1996)

Talk about purgatory–if you’ve been to your local multiplex lately, you may have noticed we’re in the midst of superhero cinema overload, with dozens upon dozens of franchise-building entries set to be meted over the next decade, each more hyped than the last. But though Marvel and DC now dominate, it wasn’t so long ago that superhero cinema was far more quaint, stocked with knock-off brands and substandard powers. For example, how’s about a Canadian superhero film that not only boasts dominatrices, sex toys and incestuous overtones, but also happens to star the wife of a famous rock star? Rick Trembles is back with another site-exclusive MOTION PICTURE PURGATORY, ready to don his cape and cowl and go head-to-toe with the very bizarre ELECTRA (1996),
