My Review Of “Iceman”


icemanWing-cheong Law directed “Iceman” is a blended fantasy/sci-fi film that plays heavily on the classic Hong Kong action/fight set-up. The film stars Donnie Yen, Baoqiang Wang, Shengyi Huang, Yu Kang, Simon Yam and Suet Lam. The story takes on the cryogenic tech concept by having ancestors of almost godly stature and brings them to the 21st century in a light-hearted, cut-n-copy style that Hong Kong cinema is famous for. I love the theatrics of Asian cinema. Maybe it is because, due to subtitles, I place my focus on emotion, body language and facial reactions. I skim read the subtitled dialog-often times the translation is brutal.

“Iceman” has a fun, and yet intense story that begs for cool fight sequences choreographed flawlessly. I didn’t totally get the grandeur that surrounds these figures-who obviously have mastered the teachings so well they have transcended into “godhood”. However the scenes are so strong, with a balance of melodrama, humor and action. The story does capitalize on the expected components that make up modern action films from China, it almost mirrors the set up of Japanese anime series. The characters, although a bit cliché, offer a collection of comic relief, romantic interlude, and tons of dramatic inflection. All in a blended cultures piece that brings the past into the present.

The special effects and sound in “Iceman” are standard blends of CGI heavy sequences and choreographed fight stuff. I have learned that Asian cinema is one area where tolerance of CGI is just mandated in order to get into films from this market. It is okay as long as enough practical effects are added to balance it out. Which in “Iceman” actually works to do just that. Everything about the various techniques used add to the melodrama and excitement. The soundtrack and sound effects are standard mill stuff so that was a bummer. Most was instrumental melodies that felt familiar. It works but it does real propel the story to that extra level of suspense or thrills.

Overall “Iceman” is a decent action/fantasy film with plenty of fights and drama. I am not sure if it is truly a strong piece because some of the material didn’t connect with me personally. I enjoyed watching this film but I have seen better films similar to this one come out of Hong Kong. Still the cinematography and production value is stellar. The flat areas for me are the humanizing scenes of character relationship/ dialog interaction moments that are intended to build up the characters so that they more personable dimension, but really just creates drag on the action and thrills a bit too much. Again – I liked “Iceman” but I am not sure if it will be strong enough for the diehard Asian cinema fan.

My Review Of “Don’t Blink”


don't blink“Don’t Blink” is directed by Travis Oats and for a feature debut as director, the film is pretty impressive. It is a strong story that creates a dark unease with serious subject matter, straight forward dialog and disturbing climactic scenes that just continue the story right up until the end-an end without finality! Something that makes this movie feel more authentic as a horror film. Plus (and I am trying not to spoil it) that unfinished moment that ends the film allows for this idea and concept to continue in a paranormal/horror mythos. “Don’t Blink” stars Mena Suvari,Brian Austin Green, Zack Ward, Joanne Kelly, Fiona Gubelmann, David de Lautour, Leif Gantvoort, Curtiss Frisle, Emelie O’Hara and Samantha Jacober.

The story deals with a paranormal or supernatural uncertainty that builds creates an unnatural creepy atmosphere almost from the start. Okay the start is actually a concerted, cheese feast intro. At least that is how it felt to me, it actually sets the tone and gives us our characters backstory without taking up a lot of dialog in the main story. A story that is freaky, built into society’s psyche based on religious mythology, and alien mythos alike.  The plot has a group of friends taking a trip to an excluded, out-of-the-way retreat in the mountains of Colorado (I think-I think of Colorado whenever I hear a John Denver song). Anyway the location is nothing if not “unsettling”.

The acting in “Don’t Blink” is pretty tight, most of the cast give strong performances bringing cliché characters together in one disturbing experience. At times it does feel a bit too polished and insincere, but that is just because such attention has been paid to piecing this film together as perfect as possible. A task that is manages pretty d*mn nicely – in my opinion. The characters are relatable on some level, yeah they are stereotypes but they personalities are so individually blended that the cliché seems somewhat elevated to a more modern equivalent. Plus I have been sold on Brian Austin Green since ‘Sarah Connor Chronicles’ and of course the “Laid To Rest” franchise.

“Don’t Blink” uses mostly practical effects, with camera tricks for the obvious main horror element of the film. For every practical effect scene everything works to create a gruesome, disturbing raw moment. It elevates the very dramatically driven story, and terrifying reality of these characters. Again this is a testament to the cast and crew’s strength to produce a quality film. The soundtrack was a bit ineffective in pushing the psychological profile of the story into the necessary areas of unease that the subject matter and acting demand. That is not to say that it doesn’t serve to carry the story’s emotional component through the film, it just doesn’t have the power that all the other components hold in this nightmare scenario. However-overall “Don’t Blink” is a great horror story that warrants attention from horror fans. I think both psychological horror and paranormal horror fans will be very pleased with this one.

I reviewed the film back in 2013. You can read it here: My Review Of “Creature 2013”.

The film comes from Film Bizarro Productions and is an episodic clash of generations. Made by simple, modern means of technology but enhanced with the style of the glorious horror heyday, it's a slowly pounding and personal arthouse film but with a strong horror undertone. Told like an episodic memory, we're right by Natalya's side as she ventures into disillusion and the terror of a past life long repressed.

Head over and check out the film for yourselves…Share it with your friends and if you like it vote for it on the website….

My Review Of "Motivational Growth"


Don Thacker’s “Motivational Growth” is a bizarre hyperbole- truly modern. Honestly I think the film will be this generation’s “Little Shop Of Horror”, just replace the singing with fun animation graphics rife with Adult Swim quality humor. Actually take that film and shake it with some “Stay Tuned” and you have the perfect horrortini for your maturing viewing pleasure. “Motivational Growth” stars Jeffrey Combs, Adrian DiGiovanni, Danielle Doetsch, Pete Giovagnoli, Ken Brown, Hannah Stevenson and Megan Hensley. It is a story of madness in true-to-form dark, satirical entertainment.

The story follows Ian Folivor, a depressed, recluse with a strong agoraphobic agitate. The film plays out in a strange spectacle of narration, animation and melodramatic adulation of phobias. The antagonist to Folivor’s tragic character is a talking mold build-up against the bathroom sink. Lets face it, single men (sometimes even gay men) are not the best of housekeepers. So it is just a matter of time before some bacteria or fungus is allowed to evolve into a self aware annihilator of humanity. Of course there is so much to this story that I can’t talk about as not to spoil the film. Let’s just say that even though the premise, at times, seems predictable or flagrant, it still manages to carry some very entertaining and surprising moments. It is just a fun story, that is executed wonderfully by Thacker both with the writing and directing.

The special effects and sound track used on “Motivational Growth” are both very stylized, practical effects that push the story even further into the dark, satirical wasteland. The special effects offer up some truly gross and lighthearted exaggeration to the situation at hand with Folivor’s condition and circumstance. The practical effects are done nicely, reminiscent of mid 80’s horror comedy stuff –notably “TerrorVision” . The animation and graphics used actually add a sort of hallucinogenic quality to the film’s overall persona. It would have went over even more had the dude’s dealer been among the series of intrusions into Folivor’s sacred space.


The sound track is what you would expect. It doesn’t bring anything extremely new or altered to the film, but it works to create an atmosphere equal to the kind of story that Thacker is telling in “Motivational Growth”. Fun, entertaining, satirical and creepy. The film is a very strong, indie horror comedy that screams instant classic. The downer moment in the story was the actual dramatic interaction between Folivor and his object of affection. Had it been as out there as the interaction with the rest of the characters then I wouldn’t have anything bad to say about this film. Still it is a pretty stellar horror/comedy.

Production Begins On “Our Friend Jon” Documentary


The week before Halloween will see the commencement of principal photography on Edward Payson’s next project: Our Friend John – The Documentary.

our friend jonOur Friend Jon, a collaboration between Payson’s prolific production company, An AntiHero Production, and Maria Olsen’s MOnsterworks66, will document the story of how three friends will produce and shoot the short film, Rose Thorn, written by Jonathan Hernandez. What makes this story special is that Jon passed away from complications due to Sickle Cell Anemia while writing the script, and what makes it particularly poignant is that Jon’s three friends, Nick Saporito, Brandon Joyal and Garrett Payson, all lead extremely challenging lives...

What will make this film appeal to horror fans worldwide is that Rose Thorn is a horror film...it was Jon’s wish to become a horror filmmaker, and, by shooting his film and documenting the process, his family and friends will both celebrate his life and make his last wish come true.
In Edward’s own words:

“This is a project that really means a lot to my family and I. In August of 2013 our friend, Jonathan Hernandez passed away to complications from Sickle Cell Anemia. Before he passed away he was writing a script for a short film titled Rose Thorn. Upon his passing, his friends (all with disabilities of their own) decided to make his film and keep his memory alive forever. This is a documentary about three young men keeping their friend's dream alive.

We will be following Garrett Payson, Nick Saporito and Brandon Joyal over the course of one summer as they conceptualize and complete their fallen friend’s movie. The film will be an underdog story about these three boys making their friends film and in the process raise awareness for Sickle Cell Anemia.”

Neither Payson nor Olsen are strangers to the horror genre, and, so far, their companies’ joint productions have included Edward Payson’s Sunday Night Slaughters, an anthology horror feature. Shooting recently wrapped on SNS Episode 3, Fatally Yours, and they’re presently in pre-production for Episode 4, Cream Filling. Payson also produced, wrote and directed the notorious Cohasset Snuff Film as well as the chilling Morbid: A Love Story. MO66’s horror co-productions have included Brandon Scullion’s Live-In Fear, which premiered at the Los Angeles United Film Festival earlier this month, Christopher Dye’s Something Sinister, presently in post-production, and Shawn Chou’s Reunion, which should premiere later this year.

Olsen has also been pinned to appear in Rose Thorn as Rose, a vicious serial killer who chooses to share the gory details of her kills with a most unexpected audience... Olsen is well known in indie horror circles, and is currently appearing in film festival favorites Starry Eyes, Another and African Gothic. She has also been cast in Thomas Della Bella’s The Remains alongside True Blood’s Todd Lowe and Joston Theney’s Axeman at Cutter’s Creek follow-up, Axeman 2: Overkill. She has recently wrapped Hansel v Gretel, Lou Simon’s Agoraphobia (starring Cassandra Scerbo and Tony Todd), Jim Towns’s State of Desolation, Frolic Pictures’ Club Lingerie and Gore Orphanage, helmed by Emily Lapisardi and Cody Knotts of Breeding Farm fame.
