Cinema Fearité presents ‘Party Line’ Remember party lines? Cinema Fearité takes you back to those pre-internet days with the aptly titled ‘Party Line.’ A few years ago, Cinema Fearité explored the dated beauty of the landline telephone scam with 976-EVIL. But that’s not the only movie from the eighties about the pay-per-call culture. There’s also […]
Cinema Fearité presents ‘Fight Club’ David Fincher’s genius elevates Chuck Palahniuk’s brilliance in ‘Fight Club.’ It’s not uncommon for an author to dislike a cinematic adaptation of their work.

In the immediate aftermath of George Lucas’ groundbreaking (and blockbusting) phenomenon, production companies everywhere scrambled to capitalize […]
Cinema Fearité presents ‘Creature from the Haunted Sea’ The third time’s a charm for Roger Corman with ‘Creature from the Haunted Sea.’ Remakes are almost as old as cinema itself, especially when it comes to horror movies (Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, anyone?).

Cinema Fearité presents ‘The Plague Dogs’ Cinema Fearité explores the childhood nightmares of ‘The Plague Dogs.’ Everyone has a memory of a movie that scared the hell out of them as a kid.
