First Image Released For Travis Stevens' "Girl On The Third Floor"

Dressed in a hoodie and a menacing glare, he terrorizes them and picks them off one by one.

My Review Of "Night Runners"


"Night Runners" is the debut short from Angel Dillemuth who co-directed the urban crime, horror short with Nectarios Leonidas. The film stars Dillemuth, Quincy Chad, and Morgane as the Night Runner.

The film follows two men who, after committing a robbery in which a child is killed, are pursued by an ancient evil out to avenge lost innocence.

Angel Dillemuth clearly knows horror storytelling designed to create a message. His short film, first time experience, is a clever,  dark parable told honest and smart. The characters are organic and relatable. They are also non-typical , fully developed people - flawed as they are. The events unfold in a naturally,  eerie sequence of events that hold attention while creating suspense.

The acting in "Night Runners" is top notch, beyond what you normally find in microbudget productions. The atmosphere Dillemuth creates is a blend of classic horror and still maintaina a contemporary feel. The creature design and special effects are just enough to be bloody and chilling and spot on. Overall "Night Runners" is a quick shot of  excellent nightmare storytelling that is entertaining. Definitely worth checking out ! (5/5)

My Review Of "My Pet Dinosaur"


Spielbergian fantasy film My Pet Dinosaur, from Matt Drummond is a cross between E.T and Monster’s Inc. The film fixes on the unlikely friendship between a boy and a dinosaur.  Cast includes Jordan Dulieu, Annabel Wolfe, Christopher Gabardi and Tiriel Mora.

When a boy finds the remnants of a failed military experiment his troubled town is plunged further into chaos as he accidentally makes a new friend.

The story is your classic coming-of-age, family friendly adventure flick, with stereotypical youths, maturetc emotional conflict,  and it's about a boy and his geneticallygrown dinosaur created from alien goo. It really plays upon whimsy and the fantastic similar to classic tales like "The Water Horse" and "Pete's Dragon".

"My Pet Dinosaur" is a nicely made indie film that hits the hearts of young fans and young at heart fans alike into dinosaur and pet driven family films. I found Drummond's story endearing. Although there isn't anything here that hasn't already been done before, this movie still captures the heart and attitude of childhood fantasy and even pulls in some nostalgia based energy.

The characters are likeable,  recognizable personas that drive the emotion of the movie. The whole fake American aspect was annoying,  but whatever.  Magnus is adorable, captivating- as much as any CGI driven pet dinosaur can be. And the CGI is well done and quality work for a microbudget production. There is a few lower quality moments CGI wise, but for the most part it works. (3/5)
