REVIEWS FROM OUR PREVIOUS ISSUE, SHOCK CINEMA #46 

Daniel Greene and Peter Lupus get pumped up in the low-budget, '80s health-club schlock-fest Pulsebeat.

French sci-fi mini-series dystopia that embraces politics, the media, organized crime, plus one bad-ass cop: Les Hordes.

Steve Hawkes and Kitty Swan star in the hilariously cut-rate Tarzan knock-off Zan, King of the Jungle.

Matt Mitler directs and stars as an abrasive, self-destructive, NYC comedian in the underground feature Cracking Up.
