Sinister 2 Review

Sinister 2Reviewed by Tom Wood

Sinister 2
Directed by Ciaran Foy
Written by Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill.
Starring James Ransone and Shannyn Sossamon

Synopsis – A mother and her twin sons find themselves tormented in their farmhouse by the mysterious Mr Boogie, all whilst Deputy So & So continues his investigation from the previous installment.

Upon hearing of a sequel to Sinister, I was as excited as a child on Christmas Day. Being more of a Splat Pack fan, not many supernatural films have caught my attention like Sinister and continue to gain it through to a second installment.

The film simply has the same storyline of the first, where a family are being haunted by a supernatural being. Very basic indeed; But, that’s not always a bad thing and is what I love about Horror films, the more simple something is, the better it can be. Take a look at The Exorcist, or even Hitchcock’s Birds for example - two simple stories that have turned into the most popular Horrors of all time.

The film reminded of Stephen King’s Children of the Corn and when I researched the film further, I had found that Sinister 2 was inspired by King’s story and contains other elements from other of King’s work such as IT. I will not delve too much into this as I do not want to give out too many spoilers. It will be something you will understand if you have read the books.

‘Honeymoon’ (2014) film review

HoneymoonReviewed by Jesse Miller

Director: Leigh Janiak
Writers: Phil Graziadei & Leigh Janiak
Starring: Rose Leslie, Harry Treadaway…

Synopsis: A newlywed couple finds their lake-country honeymoon descend into chaos after Paul finds Bea wandering and disoriented in the middle of their first night.

You never know what you’re getting with Honeymoon until it decides to show its cards in the finale of the film and even then, everything you thought you knew about the characters and how they relate to each other is changed. You think you might have figured Honeymoon out from its trailer or poster but listen to the old saying: don’t judge a book by its cover because there’s something rather wicked about these characters and it’s worth taking the journey for.

To me, Honeymoon is a horror with a mood similar to a 1970s slasher film. Everything from the sets to the music to the costumes all feel like they are emulating that feel. More than that, Honeymoon feels like the works of David Cronenberg influences it, with some seriously nasty body horror happening throughout the film.

The two lovebirds are Rose Leslie and Harry Treadaway. Here you’ve got two very likeable stars that have got chemistry together, which led me to becoming invested in their turmoil and their relationship. Both Leslie and Treadaway are terrific, elevating their parts beyond the written into characters you care about. You feel their hurt and you understand their motivations and you can see what they are going through on their faces in the quieter moments. They are both wonderful performers.

A Question to the Horror Community

by Mike Thomas

Three Examples:
-a person attends a horror movie, or goes to a haunted house attraction
- a person set up with a prank by being startled by something that frightens them
- a person is unwittingly put in a frightening situation against their will

My query: Is it right to frighten an unknowing victim?

We have shows like “Scare Tactics,” where friends set up other friends to be put in horrifying situations, and of course, “Punk’d” episodes where friends are put in awkward situations.

The big difference is shows like the above are staged by friends for friends. And the victims’ friends are aware of their friends’ limits.
My reason for this discussion: there is a video circulating where a person(s) is set up in a fake elevator where the lights go out, and when the lights come back on, a little girl has suddenly “appears” in the seemingly, seemingly empty but moving elevator. She turns to the hapless victim(s), screams, the lights go out again and the girl has “disappeared.”

Dawna Lee Heising interviews Vida Ghaffari about GARDEN PARTY MASSACRE and more

Garden Party Massacreby

Horror meets hilarity in award-winning Gregory Blair’s new film GARDEN PARTY MASSACRE and cast members Dawna Lee Heising and Vida Ghaffari reveal a little bit about the project and their characters in this interview filmed at the City Beat Live mixer August 1st, 2015.

GARDEN PARTY MASSACRE tells the riotous tale of a friendly backyard gathering that goes hilariously awry when an unexpected guest arrives. With a pickaxe. And an attitude. Vida Ghaffari plays Reena, the sassy fashionista Reena and Dawna plays Melanie—“the MILF from hell”.

GARDEN PARTY MASSACRE is a fast-paced, wacky romp in the vein of Shaun of the Dead and Tucker and Dale vs. Evil and both ladies get their share of the fun.

The cast also includes other familiar names in comedy and horror as well as some fresh faces: Andy Gates (“Grimm”, “The Young and the Restless”, etc.), Nichole Bagby (“My Crazy Roommate”, “Sex Sent Me to the ER”, etc.), David Leeper, Matt Weinglass
and even Blair himself.

The film shoots this October through Blair’s production company, PIX/SEE Productions; just days after Blair’s award-winning film DEADLY REVISIONS is released on 9/29/15 via SGL Entertainment.

Is Hollywood Becoming Lazy?

by Tom Wood

By now, anyone who has read my blogs will know how much of a Horror fan I am. If you haven’t, firstly where have you been all this time? (Just kidding, I know you have a life. But seriously, where have you been?). Secondly, I like anything weird and scary.

I was recently watching a Horror film as you do, and was very disappointed with the outcome, especially with all the hype it received on release. I will not give away what this film was as I do not want to discredit it further than it needs to; but there was no other way to describe this film as pure rubbish. All I will say it was a remake of an eighties classic that I love.

Later that evening, I was checking a social network website trying to waste a bit of time. I saw a post by a person, who specialises in reviewing films; tell us a piece of information on a new film. I was very disappointed to hear that A Nightmare on Elm Street is to be rebooted. AGAIN! This annoyed me more than what it should do. Why shouldn’t it though? There have been so many remakes/reboots either released or announced, just this year alone.

Horror films have released so many sequels as well over the years that film industries to me, seem to be lacking originality. This is why I’d begun getting so annoyed with the newly announced remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street. There isn’t any need for it. There are already seven of them (without counting Freddy Vs Jason) and a reboot that had already been released in 2010.

It is the same now with Marvel films. The Fantastic Four reboot has had mixed reviews that have disappointed the film industry and a lot of fans; as well as another reboot of a Spiderman series announced only a couple of years after the last reboot of The Amazing Spiderman, which in my opinion should have carried on going.

Exclusive Interview with Bill Moseley, Kane Hodder and Marshal Hilton for Bobby Easley’s 'The Devil Dogs of Kilo Company'


The Devil Dogs of Kilo Company is a brilliantly conceived, animated WWII epic, which is written and directed by Bobby Easley for a 2015 release. The assistant director of the feature film is Terence Muncy and the engineer is Tom Roosa. Easley, both a director and actor and the CEO of Horror Wasteland Pictures International, is known for “The Boogeyman;” “The River Runs Black;” “Scream Machine;” “All Sinners Night;” and “X.” “All Sinners Night” has distribution through MVD Entertainment Group, WWMM and Chemical Burn.

The plot of the innovative feature film revolves around “…a company of Marines deep behind enemy lines on a top secret mission. The company is out-manned and outgunned as they fight their way to hell and back leaving a path of death and destruction in their wake.” The creative trailer can be viewed here:

“The Devil Dogs of Kilo Company” stars Kane Hodder (Friday the 13th 7,8,9, Jason X, Hatchet); John Dugan (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 74,4,3D); Bill Moseley (House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects, Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, 3D, Army of Darkness, Halloween); and Marshal Hilton (120/80: Stressed to Kill, The Bunnyman Massacre, Monumental). Hodder recently released his autobiography, "Unmasked: The Life Story of the World's Most Prolific Killer", which has received glowing reviews.

Kane Hodder plays the role of Company First Sergeant Phil Altum, and Bill Moseley has the role of Company Commander Captain Glen Morrison. John Dugan portrays Colonel Steve Talaska, and Marshal Hilton is Major Cahill. Dugan recorded his voiceover at AZMYTH Studios in Carmel, Indiana, while Hodder, Moseley and Hilton recorded their roles at Outloud Audio Studios in Burbank, California. All of the German soldiers depicted will be recorded with Frank Banx in Dortmund, Germany, and Roosa will mix everything together for the final film.

IMPURATUS moves into Casting and Pre-production

ImpuratusScreengage and ThunderSmoke Media announce that their new horror film IMPURATUS has moved into Casting and Pre-Production.

The film takes place in 1922 and is about a police detective called out to a remote hospital to witness the deathbed confession of a mysterious Civil War Vet that forces him to accept the supernatural.

The move will be shot on location in The Greater Lehigh Valley region of Pennsylvania and in a Philadelphia sound stage.

Written and directed by Michael Yurinko, the film is being produced by Guy Quigley and will star Holt Boggs, Jody Quigley, John Savage, Maria Olsen and Blanca Blanco.

Legendary Filmmaker Ted V. Mikels Initiates Fund Raising Drive for '10 Violent Women: Part 2'

Mikels Announces Acting Auditions in Henderson, Nevada on August 9, 2015

TVM Studios has announced that the studio’s new production, Ten Violent Women: Part Two, has scheduled acting auditions at the company’s Las Vegas Studio on August 9, 2015 in Henderson, Nevada. "Ten Violent Women: Part Two", the sequel to “10 Violent Women”, will star Francine York, and will explore females who seek recognition for their physical beauty, muscular bodies, martial arts, wrestling, boxing, and beauty pageant appearances. Check out this great video from Mikels:

Ted V. Mikels, the film’s legendary director, has announced a campaign to raise the necessary production funds. Mikels notes that he has been making movies for over 65 years. “I have made dozens and dozens of movies over the years, including such titles as ‘Astro Zombies,’ ‘The Doll Squad,’ ‘10 Violent Women,’ ‘The Corpse Grinders,’ ‘Girl In The Gold Boots,’ ‘Mission: Killfast,’ ‘Demon Haunt,’ and many more.

“I have recently announced that I am finally making a sequel to my highly successful film "10 Violent Women," but I can't make it without the help of motion picture fans. This is a project that has been requested by my fans for many years, and since my fans are the best fans in the world, I decided to take the challenge and do it for them. I have been self-funding my low budget projects for many years, but in order to justice to this highly anticipated sequel, and not let my fans down, I need to actually raise some real money.”

A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night (2014) review

A Girl Walks Home Alone at NightReviewed by Kevin Scott

A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night (2014)
Written by: Ana Lily Amirpour
Directed by: Ana Lily Amirpour
Cast: Sheila Vand (The Girl), Arash (Arash Marandi), Marshall Manesh (Hossein the Junkie), Mozhan Marno (Atti the Prostitute), Dominic Rains (Saeed the Pimp), Rome Shadanloo (Shaydah the Princess), Ray Haratian (The Boss), Pej Vahdat (DJ Porno), Ana Lily Amirpour (Skeleton Partygirl), Masuka (Masuka the Cat)

There are two things that have inhibited me in the past from broadening my horror film horizons. Those things would be subtitles and anything filmed in black and white. I’ve conquered my perceived drudgery of reading subtitles, and after many forced exercises to multitask my watching and reading simultaneously, I can get lost in a really good horror movie, and the subtitles come as second nature. I’m still struggling with the black and white. Even established classics such as “Night of the Living Dead” require some deliberation as to whether I want to suffer through the absence of color. Typically nowadays, it almost has to be an artistic choice, whereas back in day, it more than likely was a monetary decision. I’m almost ashamed to admit that I’ve turned my share of black and white films off, before ever giving them a chance. I’m getting better, but even now, I need to get hooked in the beginning to hang around.

“A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night” is filmed in black and white, and has subtitles that you can’t turn off unless you speak fluent Farsi, which I don’t. I made it through this one. A milestone for me no doubt, and a clear indicator of my ever evolving film sophistication or maybe the movie was just good. I’m going for a 30 percent/70 percent split with the majority on the latter. I’m amazed at how much I liked this vampire movie that anyone with a fleeting short term memory would flub the title when trying to recommend.

Interview with 'Lamb Feed' Director Michael S. Rodriguez

Lamb FeedJonathan Weichsel

Michael S. Rodriguez is the director of the twenty-seven minute short Lamb Feed and the thirty minute short Night of the Sea Monkey. I sat down and interviewed him about his work.

JW: I reached out to you to watch your films after you wished me happy birthday on Facebook, because I enjoyed Meghan Chadeayne's performance in Naked Zombie Girl, which I caught at Beyond The Beaten Path, and I saw you had directed a short starring her, Lamb Feed, and I was interested in seeing what else she has done. So I am wondering, what is it like working with Meghan? What is it that attracts you to her work?

MR: Along with being close personal friends we are also business partners and I find Meg to be a completely focused professional that is an absolute delight to work with. When I call action Meghan has the natural ability to find her character's idiosyncrasies while she's delivering her lines. To me a sense of naturalism in the performance is a must and Meg is always on point with hers.

JW: I watched your shorts, Night of the Seamonkey and Lamb Feed. I thought that Lamb Feed was an improvement over Night of the Seamonkey, both in terms of production values and storytelling. I am wondering if you learned anything working on Night of the Seamonkey that you then applied to Lamb Feed.

MR: You come to find that giving yourself ample time for pre production is always a must and that storyboards and shot lists do come in handy.. So I definitely took with me a tremendous amount of knowledge from my first effort (Sea Monkey) and decided to go to the next level with Lamb Feed.

JW: Lamb Feed had a lot of surreal imagery in it. You described it to me as "subliminal" when you sent me the link. Could you elaborate on what you mean by that?

MR: At the time when I started writing Lamb feed I was intrigued with making a narrative short. Being an artist first and foremost I thought it would be refreshing for horror fans to sit back and have a visual feast while a story unfolds without much dialogue if any.
