My Review Of “Rigor Mortis”


1“Rigor Mortis” is Hong Kong’s call-back to new resurgence of horror/fantasy. Billed as a feature film inspired by a popular the popular Vampire films of the 80’s. this movie gives us a dark, wondrous nightmare. Starring Anthony Chan, Siu-Ho Chin, Kara Hui, Hoi-Pang Lo, Richard Ng, and Hee Ching Paw. The plot revolves around an ex actor on a downward spiral, longing for death, who moves into an apartment tower where realm of supernatural and humanity are entwined.

“Rigor Mortis” offers a fantastical fantasy world of horror, drama and Hong Kong action. The story is multi-layered with lives tangled in a hellish fate. There are elements of melodrama and gore that move in a wonderful ballet of emotion and carnage. I feel that the story works as a modern retelling of some ancient Chinese fable, the concepts and character development seem so complex and powerful that it just screams of morality wisdom from the past. Either way it is a tale that embraces both the old supernatural beliefs and contemporary style that proves Hong Kong’s dominance over this blended fantasy/horror genre.

The special effects and soundtrack utilized in “Rigor Mortis” is top notch. The sounds are creepy, often creating a dark atmosphere of desperation scene after scene. The sets where depressing, lifeless tombs of fading lives that would send chills up Takashi Shimizu and Clive Barker’s backs. “Rigor Mortis” uses some pretty spectacular CGI and practical effects for the fantasy and horror elements. Epic visual moments weave into the film in true whimsical opulence while the blood soaked gore combined with the chilling horror scenes create a nightmare fantasy that captivates and entertains. Just based on “Rigor Mortis” as an independent entity untethered from it’s inspiration, homages and such I found this to be one of the best horror/fantasy films that I have ever seen. “Rigor Mortis” is Juno Mak’s masterpiece and a must see film!

My Review Of “Bread Crumbs” 2011


1“Bread Crumbs” is a 2011 horror that goes for broke in an attempt to combine a disturbing horror plot with a classic, often overlooked, disturbing didactic, fairytale of two children left tend to the elements, deep in the woods. “Bread Crumbs”  is directed by Mike Nichols and stars Kristina Klebe, Dan Shaked, Marianne Hagan, Zoe Sloane, Alana Curry, Douglas Nyback, Shira Weitz, Steve Carey, and Mike Nichols. The plot follows a porn crew and cast into the woods to shoot a movie. Unfortunately there is a twisted brother, sister duo using the area as their personal killing field.

The story is pretty cool with a basic principle of setting the characters up for a kill scene which for the most part work without seeming contrived. The drama and action begin almost instantly and manage to keep a steady, straight forward pace through most of the movie without becoming exhausting. The porn set concept brings plenty of flesh to the screen but in the most censored, conservative manner. Nothing really explicit here (by my standards anyway). However, it is obvious that entwining the “Hansel & Gretel” aspect to the story is very much contrived, playing out more like a bit of stretched, nonsensical moments of weak dialog meant to bring the viewer to the breadcrumbs “table”. Still the kids are so damn dark and disturbing that it manages to pull off a good concept in a, “middle-of-the-road, mediocre way, but it does get there.

The soundtrack and special effects in “Bread Crumbs” really make the film enjoyable for me personally. I can forgive weak dialog, loose story arcs” as long as the effects and sound track hold me to the story and drama unfolding on screen. Nichols does a pretty good job tying it all in to make a fun, standard horror mythos in “Bread Crumbs” with eerie sounds, and a strong attention to practical effects and blood consistency. The film doesn’t give us a new look at horror or bring something extraordinary to the genre but it is an entertaining, modern classic that stays true to the roots of the genre. It gave me that 80’s feel that I only get with a certain type of horror movie story, I dug the homicidal brother and sister and the unfinished ending is beyond retro! (That is a good thing cause retro is candy for me!)

Crowd Funding Started For Season 2 Of “Once Upon A Time In The 70’s”


1One of the cool and grooviest webseries to come along is “Once Upon A Time In The 70’s” and much like those other popular shows that start with “Once Upon A Time…” this series too manages to create a blend of fantasy, sci-fi, and funk in a cool unapologetic, campy, low budget style. Season two has kicked off crowd funding over on Kickstarter and season one is available on blip.tv.

The series is the creation of Kill Vampire Lincoln Productions, directed by Chris Lukeman and stars Jonathan Harden, Maggie Gottlieb, Thomas Nicol, Stephanie Swearingen, Matt Fear, Bill Kephart, Ben Juday. Science, adventure, love, disco, and ROBOTS! In the probably-alternate 1970s, an ominous portal hangs in the sky and killer robots live among us. Scientist heroes fight evil with rayguns and disco in this transistorpunk sci-fi adventure.

Tonight Is The Scorpio Moon Also Considered The Flower Moon


Paganism is a new spiritual exploration for me. All the spiritual and mystical elements at play call to me. They always have in some for throughout my life. I now explore unconstrained pagan beliefs much as the ancient Romans expressed their spirituality. I like the free flowing, non-uniformed way of embracing my pagan nature.

audrey-von-hawleyAnyway the moon cycles, ancient festivals, and the many deities’ days of worship are wonderful ways to connect on so many levels. Most of my inspiration comes from well established and learned members of the Pagan community. Mystic Mamma is one of those. She shared this wonderful and adorning article about tonight's Scorpio moon. Read some of the article below and then head over to Mystic Momma to learn and be filled by the wonderful bounty of knowledge that is truly inspiring!

We have been integrating what has been brought to light in the past few weeks and are ready to move out of these deeper waters. This Full Moon in Scorpio illuminates the last of it, and calls for us to gather our courage and take action that will enable us to  move forward.

Here are the MYSTIC MAMMA Astral Insights from the most insightful readers of the planetary movements. First from the wonderful  Sarah Varcasand her Astro-Awakenings.uk:
“As we approach Wednesday’s Scorpio Full Moon and distance ourselves from the recent Sun/Saturn opposition we can best use this time to consider where in life we are skimming the surface in order to avoid the apparent darkness of depths we would prefer were not there.
“This is not an exercise in misery or some kind of morbid masochism but a gentle coaxing of our attention to the places where it does not naturally rest… Think of it as tending to a painful wound. We don’t bash it with a mallet to make it better. We bathe it in soothing warm water…”
“A Full Moon in Scorpio shines its light in the darkest places, encouraging us to peer in and see what’s there, even if only for a moment. So as we approach the coming Full Moon we can invite it in rather than dread its arrival, prepare a place at the table and plan for it to stay a while.
“In so doing we are holding out the wound we’ve been trying to avoid dealing with and asking for a healing balm to be applied. If the wound is deep it may hurt at the cleaning stage. I can’t deny that. But this is the pain of progress, of increasing consciousness, of the growth of wisdom.
It is the pain that says something is now happening which will bring you to wholeness in due course. It is a different pain to the one which says ‘go too deep here and you’ll never return’: the pain of fear, denial, of living a half life because so much is banished to the shadows.”

Pagan Festival Shout Out: Mercuralia “Festival To Mercury”


mercuryBlessed days embrace us during these Ides Of May! May 15th is the Mercuralia! It is known as the festival to Mercury, probably one of the sexiest deities from our ancient heritage of worship. Basically the holiday is more a celebration that merchants honor for blessed commerce. the merchants of Rome would use laurel boughs to sprinkle their merchandise, their ships, and their heads with water from a fountain at Porta Capena known as aqua Mercurii.

Mercury, was a Roman messenger god whose attributes were mainly borrowed from the Greek god Hermes although there are myths regarding Mercury that are distinctly Roman. He was a god of trade, thieves, and travel. The name is closely related to merx, mercari, and merces which respectively mean merchandise, to trade, and wages. For good luck, on the Ides of May (May 15th) which was considered his birthday,

They also offered prayers to Mercury for forgiveness of past and future perjuries, for profit, and the continued ability to cheat customers! So really this is a day that thieving merchants would haggle customers with inflated prices in order to get the most coins from badgered buyers. It would translate today as a “shopping holiday”. Tomorrow go out and by a little something-something on the cheap to get the best deal from the shady ass shop keepers-look for the sales! Also the day draws from the well of luck, and blessings, not to mention honoring Mercury. Place some coins on your alter, light your candles for luck and dab a bit of blessed water in the sign of protection. I plan to place the blessed water on the 5 points of my body- head, hands, feet while asking Mercury for blessings on this, his birthday!

Flatmates Viago, Deacon, and Vladislav are three vampires who are just trying to get by in modern society; from paying rent and sticking to the housework roster to trying to get invited in to nightclubs, they’re just like anyone else - except they’re immortal and must feast on human blood.

When their 8000 year-old flatmate Petyr, turns 20-something human hipster Nick, into a vampire, the guys must teach him the ropes and guide him through his new found eternal life. And in return they are forced to learn a thing or two about modern society, fashions, technology, and the internet. But it’s the introduction of Nick’s human friend, Stu, that really changes the vampire’s lives and attitudes towards the ever-changing world around them.

When Stu’s life is threatened, the vamps show us that maybe humans are worth fighting for, and that even though your heart may be cold and dead, it doesn’t mean you can’t feel anything.

1The first trailer has been released for thriller “Raven’s Cabin”. The Aussie flick is directed by Loren Johnson and stars Andrea Burdett, Luke Ledger,  Pia Prendiville. “Raven’s Cabin” made its debut at Monster Fest in Perth, Western Australia.

Trailer Released For Horror/Comedy “The Winedancers”


1In the fall of 2013, the South of France paid host to the shooting of a new dark comedy/horror movie named “The Winedancers” – Written and directed by Gary Meyer while produced under the helm of Godam Film in France. “The Winedancers” features actors Lucinda Rhodes, Kim Sønderholm, Kasia Koleczek, Miglen Mirtchev, Edmund Digby-Jones, Kyle Calderwood, Mariana Peñalva, J.C. Montes-Roldan, Antoine Martin, Andrea Catozzi, Jonathan Christopher Duncan, Marina De Salis, and Callie Roberts.

The film is about a number of groups of people coming together and meeting up, in what to begin with looks very coincidental, at a wine cheateu in the South of France. Needless to say, it won’t take long until a lot of very peculiar incidents start taking place; odd Pagan rituals, chateau hosts very far from the ordinary, people slowly going off the deep and end one by one – and most importantly: bloody murder – VERY bloody murder, in fact, offering real suspense that can almost be described as a classic game of whodunit with a lot of twists and turns!

Based on the wildly popular DC Comics series “Hellblazer,” seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine (Matt Ryan, “Criminal Minds”) specializes in giving hell… hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wickedly naughty wit, he fights the good fight — or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he’s decided to leave his do-gooder life behind, but when demons target Liv (Lucy Griffiths, “True Blood”), the daughter of one of Constantine’s oldest friends, he’s reluctantly thrust back into the fray – and he’ll do whatever it takes to save her. Before long, it’s revealed that Liv’s “second sight” — an ability to see the worlds behind our world and predict supernatural occurrences — is a threat to a mysterious new evil that’s rising in the shadows. Now it’s not just Liv who needs protection; the angels are starting to get worried too. So, together, Constantine and Liv must use her power and his skills to travel the country, find the demons that threaten our world and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows… maybe there’s hope for him and his soul after all.
