tremors stillPress Release:

The theatrical release of the original Tremors in 1990 combined suspense-filled action, sci-fi imagination and witty humor in the tale of a tiny Nevada town terrorized by giant man-eating worms known as Graboids. The Graboids eventually morphed into even more deadly creatures known as Ass Blasters.

My Review Of “A Night Of The Living Dead”

anotldShattered Images Films home-grown horror remake of the classic “Night Of The Living Dead” retells the zombie story with a few alterations to Romero’s original tale. “A Night Of The Living Dead” is an ultra low-budget film shot in black and white and stays pretty close to the original story without being an exact reproduction. The film is directed by Chad Zuver and stars Rebekka Daniel, Melissa Zahs, Lisa Marie, Lee Godwin, Sarah Bertz Thomas, Kayla Elizabeth, Gad Holland, Layla M. Thomas, and J.J. Lahey. The plot takes place during a visit to see their wife and mother's grave, placing Jerry and his daughters Melanie and Barbra at the beginning of a zombie apocalypse.

“A Night Of The Living Dead” keeps pretty close to the original story, but like I stated before there are some alterations and new experiences in this retelling. The story arc manages to hold together pretty well from start to finish, unfortunately there are times when it gets weak due to dialog and inconsistent story elements that fail to build the suspense or keep the film moving forward. Mostly this is due to some of the cast’s inability to stay on point with their lines and clumsy dialog.This is home grown horror so a lot of the errors are expected , but not always forgivable, “A Night Of The Living Dead” does have some pretty effective moments as far as creating chilling scenes and an overall chilling atmosphere. Not to mention several of the cast give good performances.

The special effects are ultra-cheap in “A Night Of The Living Dead” and due to camera angles and time spent focusing on the effect, are ineffective and do more to harm the scene. Not all the scenes that use special effects are a fail, some are very effective and create genuinely creepy moments. Thankfully I didn’t see any CGI effects, so the use of practical effects are greatly appreciated.

A plus for the film is that the zombies being shot in black and white are acceptable in design and effect. They stay pretty basic much like the original and several other films that it spawned that keep the zombies simple. The soundtrack and sound effects are work in “A Night OF The Living Dead” by staying pretty simple and used with precision. The music creates a since of emotion that elevates several scenes to higher-quality moments. Kudos.

Overall, “A Night Of The Living Dead” misses at creating an original retelling of the film because too much of the Romero film is present when it comes to scene set-ups and structure. The acting is pretty low quality with the exception being the few actors that do offer quality performances. This is a no budget horror film and at times really shines, unfortunately the amount of line flubs from some characters and inconsistent use of practical effects drag the director’s  intended vision down.

The good things about “A Night Of The Living Dead” are the fact that it is shot in black and white, plus it does alter some of the original film so that at times it does feel genuine and more like fan fiction than copycat. The zombies are acceptable – thanks to the black and white filming choice, and I enjoyed the added characters and location used in this film, with the exception of too much down time inside the home that the real owners obviously refused to sign off on scene damage like busting windows or actually boarding up windows.

All that said, fans of homemade, home grown horror and ultra low-budget will like the fact that “A Night Of The Living Dead” offers a better quality story than most home-grown zombie films out there. And for this particular production company this film rises above some of the companies previous works. The added characters, and black and white keeps “A Night Of The Living Dead” from completely failing, and at times creates some pretty effective moments.

Fans of indie horror that are used to films with larger budgets may not enjoy this one because of the lower quality of effects and dialog issues. It does offer an original ending to the story that is intense so I enjoyed that aspect of the film. Just be prepared and know that this is an ultra low-budget horror when you set down to watch it. I am 50/50 on this one because I enjoy the home-grown/ultra low-budget side of indie horror, I just prefer a bit more originality than what this "Night Of The Living Dead" offers, you know-something that I haven't seen before.

Blanc/Biehn Productions Releases “Fetish Factory" Poster

fetish factoryLos Angeles, CA - In the gritty, sexy and scary old school tradition of exploitation and grindhouse art comes the kick-ass poster for Blanc/Biehn Productions’ latest fright flick, “Fetish Factory.”

BBP commissioned Los Angeles based artist Aaron Kai to come up with a throwback concept and create artwork that would tell a story – using scenes from the film and building intrigue through visuals just like they did back in the 60s and 70s.

Aaron Kai’s meticulously executed, photorealistic film-inspired artwork has been featured globally from Hollywood to Tokyo to commemorate high-profile landmark events including Blade Runner: The Final Cut 25™ Anniversary, The Bette Davis Centennial, and the Jules Verne Film Festival. Prominent collectors of Kai’s original works include Ridley Scott, Harrison Ford, and Clint Eastwood.

“Fetish Factory” is written and directed by Staci Layne Wilson, based on a story by Lony Ruhmann. The plot centers on pin-up vixens vs. bloodthirsty zombies, and is set in post-apocalyptic Hollywood.
The film stars Carrie Keagan (“Reno 9-1-1!”), Chase Williamson (“John Dies at the End”), Jennifer Blanc (“Everly”, “Havenhurst”, “Hidden in the Woods”), Daniel Quinn (“Rubber”), Stephen Wastell (“Criminal Minds”), Jenimay Walker, (“Serpent’s Kiss”), Tristan Risk (“American Mary”), Emma Julia Jacobs (“Hitchcock”), Ruben Pla (“Big-Ass Spider”), Diane Ayala Goldner (“The Collector”), Jesse Merlin (“FDR: American Badass”), Benjamin Easterday (“Poseidon Rex”), Tom Ayers (“Bosch”), and Montreal-based alternative model and fetish superstar The Richard rounds out the cast.

Lony Ruhmann is executive producer, cinematography is by Steve Romano, and the original score is by Mars Homeworld and introduces new original songs by guitar superstars The Ventures.

It’s SURVIVAL OF THE FOXIEST! in “Fetish Factory”, a thrilling and darkly comic horror suspense film with a heaping helping of vintage burlesque bawdiness.

Look for it in 2015.

My Review Of “Billy Club”

billy club“Billy Club” is a modern slasher flick that utilizes classic horror elements in order to create a contemporary nightmare. One that takes America’s pastime and twists it into a dark pool of grue that is satirical and disturbing. The film is directed by Drew Rosas and Nick Sommers, stars Erin Hammond, Mark Metcalf, Marshall Caswell, Nick Sommer,  Max Williamson, and follows four friends reuniting to commemorate the brutal murder of their little league baseball coach and teammates. The event turns deadly as a vengeful, brutal killer forces them to face their past.

The story is a pretty clever, dark piece of horror that draws on tradition slasher elements like the surrealist atmosphere, horrific backstory, and plenty of blood and gore. “Billy Club” starts with a terrible tragedy that comes back to haunt all those involved. Totally typical and completely perfect for any slasher. It is a set-up that I personally feel never becomes tired. Rosas and Sommers manage to bring out a nostalgia and adoration for classic 80’s horror while creating a truly individual horror story and truly inventive masked slasher. One that is sure to be a modern day slasher icon worthy of franchising.

The acting and direction of the film is pretty standard with a cast that is rough in spots hitting the dialog and timing, but honestly no more than so many films that have come before it. Films that I find myself watching over and over. There are a few too many flashback moments in the film that can seem confusing but really fit when you get to the ending. The ending is one that is clever, well hidden until the very end and really solidifies “Billy Club” as worthy of the awards it has won. The humor is not the comedy “spoof” stuff but a blend of characters that fit into the “loveable losers” category and drug induced humor. It does seem to confuse the overall dark nature of the material but only in the way that several of the characters in the “Friday The 13th” franchise do for those films.

The special effects are all practical, organic, and traditional-no CGI here, at least none that I could tell. The directors never shy away from the kill scenes and showing the gruesomeness of it all, the effects artist has is consistency and quality at a level that the directors don’t have to “insinuate” the brutality so deaths are pretty cool and graphic. The sound effects are a bit garden variety creepiness but work well to create a chilling environment for this nightmare to unfold. The effects in one final scene aren’t quite as stellar as the rest of the film’s gory effects but whatever, 95% of the slaugherfest in “Billy Club” is pretty tight.

Overall “Billy Club” is a worthy slasher film that is an instant cult classic. I enjoyed this film immensely, I connected with the vibe of little league having played up until JV, the nods and homage to classic 80’s slashers are tasteful and not rip-offs, and the killer is just a nightmare. Truly creative and menacing. The cinematography is done nicely, enough of the film happens in darkness (which is how a horror film should be), the scenery and sets are odd, eerie elements that just amp up the chilling subject matter. But mostly the guts and gore are the big draw for horror fans to the film. Definitely check this one out! 

New DVD Artwork, Trailer And Stills Released For “Billy Club”

Pagan Festival Shout Out: Vinternatsblot

winter's day
Vinternatsblót or Haustblót– was the name Winter’s Day in the Norse or Ásatrú culture. Associated with October 14th the holiday celebrates the being of the cold nights and indicates that the summer produce has been stored for the harsh winter months. It is an ancient ritual of Northern Europe in old times.

The blot is a sacred meal shared with the gods and in ancient calendars marked the farewell of the crops. The feast would consist of tubers, vegetables, legumes and bread along with meat from the hunt. The arrival of winter and on Vinternatsblot blood offerings wear made to appease the severity of the cold, sacred to Thor.

Pagan Festival Shout Out: Festival Of Penates

Penates, formally Di Penates,  household gods of the Romans and other Latin peoples. In the narrow sense, they were gods of the penus (“household provision”), but by extension their protection reached the entire household. They are associated with other deities of the house, such as Vesta, and the name was sometimes used interchangeably with that of the Lares, any of various tutelary deities. The Penates are all or some specific group of deities with household connections, but their number and precise identity were a puzzle even to the ancients.

The Penates were worshiped privately as protectors of the individual household and also publicly as protectors of the Roman state. Each house had a shrine with images of them that were worshiped at the family meal and on special occasions. Offerings were of portions of the regular meal or of special cakes, wine, honey, incense, and, more rarely, a blood sacrifice. The state as a whole worshiped the Penates Publici. This state cult occupied a significant role as a focal point of Roman patriotism and nationalism.

My Review Of “The Shoot”

the shootJohn Adams and Toby Poser’s survival thriller “The Shoot” stars John DiMaggio, Keith Allan, Doug Spearman, Toby Poser, John Adams, Elad Ziv, Sam Rodd, Nathaniel Meek, Claire Denis, Marina De Carvalho, Billy Portman, Theo Cohn and follows a fashion shoot in the desert that goes wrong when two hard-up rockers attempt to rob the affair for the purported million in jewelry.

The story is a strong character study that brings out the darkness that comes with desperation as a struggling rocker duo set out to make quick money to pay off debt and record new music. They take advantage of one rocker’s girlfriend’s job as an assistant on a fashion shoot. “The Shoot” mixes some pretty wicked dark humor in perfectly timed dialog from the cast. The characters are strong, well rounded and wonderfully flawed people that are very relatable.

The story arc does have some weak moments in the middle, and toward the end of the film but never to the point that they make the film hard to watch. Mostly artistic choices or overwritten moments dull the exciting momentum that takes off almost from the beginning. Actually only two moments lagged for me personally, a strange slo-mo moment that makes the events that are happening seem a bit hokey as it goes on far too long and toward the end things come to a screeching halt and feel contrived. Other than those small choices made, the story is pretty tight.

The special effects used on “The Shoot” are low impact, practical effects that really sell the scenes that need them. They not only look real but they create the gore and thrilling aspects of the film. When Adams and Poser hit the chilling high energy elements in the film the tone changes to one of intense drama and death without feeling forced. The timing and transition from dark humor and chilling horror are smooth, and affective. “The Shoot” gets pretty much everything write, the story, the effects, the atmosphere all come together wonderfully.

Overall I really enjoyed “The Shoot”. The story was straight forward, layered and entertaining. The acting and direction that Poser and Adams take creates an emotionally charged melodramatic nightmare situation. The special effects, although minimal in the film work well and offer quality moments. The soundtrack flows effortlessly and create a good atmosphere-it isn’t anything new but it is what you want for this type of story. The ending was a bit underwhelming and there are moments that lag but for the most part “The Shoot” is a film worth the watch!

Pagan Festival Shout Out: Fontinalia

FontusOctober 13th is the Roman festival known as Fontinalia, in honor of the god of fountains and springs, Fontus.  Fontus was the son of Juturna and Janus. Throughout the city, fountains and wellheads were adorned with garlands, and flowers were sprinkled within the fountain to float atop the water, all said to please the god.

Colors: Blue and clear
Element: Water
Altar: Set with a blue cloth, a large earthenware bowl of spring water in which has been placed several stones, an earthenware chalice, a dipper, and possibly a small fountain.
Offerings: Coins, to be tossed into the fountain or bowl afterwards. These should then be added to a charity fund.
Daily Meal: Nothing to drink but spring water all day. River fish. Watercress. Lotus root.

Invocation to Fontus:
Hail, Spirit of the Fountain,
Spirit of wells and springs,
Gift of the Earth!
So much of our world is water,
So much of our bodies are water,
So much of the air we breathe
Is laden with water,
And yet so little of it
Will quench our thirst.
Let us never forget the generosity
Of the Earth beneath us
Who gives forth blood
In a form that we can drink of.
Hail, Spirit of the Fountain!
You who are the pure water
Blossoming forth from the Earth,
Let us remember how purity
Can come forth from that
Which is made of cold stone
And that which rotted into the mould.
With every taste of water,
We will remember your gift.

TFODThe Beginning
Many years ago, in a small town, in a plantation field lived a group of Native American Indians on a hot, stormy summer. A group of unknown men entered the village seeking shelter. They turn out to be voodoo worshipers that began trading goods and gold, so they can earn the native trusts. The voodoo worshipers began to sacrifice the towns’ people in exchange for immortal life. As the village went into exile, the legends of the voodoo worshipers grew as the sounding town, until the late 60's when local towns’ men stumbled upon a cave and unleashed the evil by removing a stone with their shovels. That is when, all hell broke loose slowly and those living in town began to disappear as evil took over.

Present Time
85 miles South of Hewclift University is where a group of ambitious college students and their professors are planning to embark on a week’s long trip to Washington DC for a science convention. Professor Sean Raymond though it would be an excellent idea to charter a bus and head up north for a road trip. When Professor Raymond though that it would be a great idea to take them through a scenic river route off the main highway, they made a strange detour through an open wooded area and the bus broke down near a small unknown town in the middle of nowhere. With no reception for their cell phones or WI FI for their iPads, they’re stranded with no communication and left with the outside world to deal with. They were forced to wonder around the abandoned, forgotten town in search for help. The curiosity got the best of the group and one by one each student begins to vanish in horrific deaths, but slowly the surviving students discover that, this was not an ordinary town. It was build years ago, on a Indian burial ground. Once they can reach an area where the WIFI works they quickly, try to communicate with the police and reach out to anyone in the outside world. The professor regrettably begins to vent that the detour was a big mistake and that they should have stayed on the main road where they can communicate with police and seek local help.
