Cult film fans should need no introduction to the genius of Larry Cohen. A master of imbuing even the most absurd scenarios with subversive subtexts and sneaky satire, Cohen's films inhabit that grey matter zone in between the mainstream and the leftfield. His conspiracy thriller The Ambulance arrived in 1990, five years after his last great film, The Stuff, and although it was clearly Cohen behind the wheel, the results suggested that his days as a director in an ever-changing, big buck-chasing film industry might be coming to a halt. But is The Ambulance a car crash like some suggest or a punchy comic book adventure that rattles along at breakneck speed? Well, it's a bit of both, actually.
