Antisocial Movie Review

Antisocial Movie Review



I knew social media sites would eventually kill everyone on Earth, be it by slowly making you addicted to constantly having to see what everyone is doing every second of every minute of every day, or if that ain't it, it's zombies, always zombies. Antisocial mixes the "zombies" of 28 Days Later, with the concept of The Signal, to give you a movie that has a been there done that feeling, but an effective message that says, get off your damn phone.



Release: Jan 28th, 2014 
Rating: 18A     
Run time: 95 min  
Starring: Michelle Mylett, Cody Ray Thompson  
Director: Cody Calahan  
Official Trailer: Antisocial

Very Busy! New Project on the Go! Making Movie Magic!

Very Busy! New Project on the Go! Making Movie Magic!


I've been very busy lately, hence the lack of new content on my sites. The reason behind the nothingness, is I've teamed up with some friends to start work on a short film; we technically started in January, but it's only now that things have really geared up, as we are now going through the heavy stages of pre-production. The script is written, the story boards are being done (very long process) and the actors and actresses have been auditioned. If you're interested in seeing the progress of our project, you can visit the official Facebook page for our production company, Night of Terror Films. Be sure to give the page a like while you're there.

As for my sites, I've still been watching horror movies lately and I'll be sure to find some time in the near future to write up a review for them. Look for those in the next couple days. Stick with me folks, things are about to get crazy!

+1 Movie Review

+1 Movie Review



When a movie has humor, boobies, doppelgangers, crazy college parties and boobies, you know you're at least in for a pretty entertaining time. Unfortunately, when a movie also has a completely unexplainable plot and a story with zero consequences when dealing with murder, you've got a little bit of a conundrum on your hands. Do you recommend it, or not? Read on to see if I solve the mystery.

Release: Oct 24th, 2013 
Rating: NR     
Run time: 95 min  
Starring: Rhys Wakefield, Ashley Hinshaw

The Deadly Spawn Movie Review

The Deadly Spawn Movie Review



I've been recently playing the amazingly bad, but awesome video game, Deadly Premonition and during one of the random, but utterly awesome parts of the game, your main character starts talking about an old 80s movie called The Deadly Spawn, about an alien creature that attacks based on sound. Immediately, I knew I had to seek this movie out and after sitting down and giving it a watch, I gotta say, it ain't bad, it ain't great, but it certainly has enough charm, that makes it worthy of sitting on the pile of a movies I deem cult classics. Read to see if you agree with me and if you don't, well, I'm hurt...

Release: April 22nd, 1983 
Rating: R    
Run time: 81 min  
Starring: Charles George Hildebrandt, Tom DeFranco  
Director: Douglas McKeown 
Official Trailer: The Deadly Spawn

Check out these Awesome Halloween Short Films!

Check out these Awesome Halloween Short Films!


I've been on a kick recently watching Halloween short films on YouTube and boy, are there some real gems out there, which brings me to this quick post. I wanted to share with you my visitors, some pretty darn good short (well, shortish, as each is around an hour long) films, that I absolutely thought were brilliant, especially given the fact that these two shorts had only weeks to write, film and edit.

First up we have Halloween: Resurgence and according to the YouTube summary, "Our fan submission to a festival that never happened. Written in a week, shot over 10 days - with 5 crew members and only the money for equipment and food - edited over 3 weeks and another week to compose the music." That's pretty damn impressive. See for yourself below...



The next one I wanted to show you is called Halloween Revenge of the Sandman and according to their YouTube summary, "Halloween Revenge of the Sandman is a fan film which pays homage to the Halloween Michael Myers franchise. Created for the Trancas / Halloweenmovies.com fan contest (which was cancelled by the studio) Revenge of the Sandman brings a new twist to the terrifying world of Michael Myers. Created from concept to completion in just 36 days Revenge of the Sandman is a high energy fan film made for the fans of the Halloween franchise. Enjoy the film."





If anyone else has any good Halloween shorts to show, please comment below with the link and I'll be sure everyone gets to know about them and see them. Thanks!

RoboCop Movie Review

RoboCop Movie Review



*Note* I meant to post this review a month ago, hence the first paragraph. Yeah, I'm that lazy. End Note*

Now I know there is a new movie out there called RoboCop and the general consensus seems to be that it's okay. I'm not one to immediately drive to my nearest theater and watch new movies, instead, I like to sit back and bask in the glory days of cinema, hence my reasoning behind watching the always classic RoboCop, from the good ol' days of the 80s. I could probably just go ahead and stop this "review", but why don't we talk a little bit about what makes Paul Verhoeven's bloody movie, about a part man, part robot, all cop, such a blast to sit through.

Release: July 17th, 1987 
Rating: R    
Run time: 102 min  
Starring: Peter Weller, Nancy Allen 
Director: Paul Verhoeven 
Official Trailer: RoboCop
