The Hideout (2014) Review

The Hideout PosterReviewed by Jennica Lynn Johnson, MoreHorror.com

Zombies have existed almost since the beginning of cinema history. And no matter how many creative ways people have killed them over the years, those zombies just keep returning to the silver screen. Perhaps one of the most unique aspects of the zombie subgenre is that, with many of the films, screenwriters have concocted new causes for the initial zombie outbreak. Due to long-standing folkloric traditions, we all know how one becomes a vampire or how one becomes a werewolf. But with zombie films, we have the element of surprise on our side.

Through the years, we have seen zombie outbreaks occur due to voodoo and black magic, nuclear accidents and radioactivity, plagues, and—more recently—sexually transmitted disease. The Hideout (2014), however, keeps things a bit more simple. Filmed in Antelope Valley, the cause of the zombie outbreak in this new release is that good old California sunshine. And with the current drought hitting hard on the west coast, such a cause seems almost plausible.

Produced by the independent company Chaotic Films, The Hideout is said to be about “five thieves who retreat back to a cabin after a robbery. As distrust and greed surfaces, a zombie outbreak turns the situation into chaos.” In this film, the heat from the sun causes flu-like symptoms such as fever and severe dehydration which eventually lead to spewing blood and developing a craving for human flesh. Although the plot summary provided by Chaotic Films is overall accurate, this isn’t a run-of-the-mill cabin-in-the-woods zombie film. But that’s mostly just because the cast of characters are not seen anywhere near a cabin until the latter half of the movie.

The Hideout is directed by Denny Barnes (who?) and Ken Morales (huh?), who also has a cameo in the film. The film’s cast is loaded with fresh faces that are either completely unheard of or one-trick ponies. A few possible noteworthy mentions include Patrick Lazzara from Zombies vs. Strippers (2012), Jinhee Joung from Gingerdead Man vs. Evil Bong (2013), and Anthony Fitzgerald from Laid to Rest (2009). Oh, and let’s not forget Britt Prentice, who was credited as “Fat Crack Head” in last year’s horror spoof, Paranormal Whacktivity.

Full details for 'Kill The Production Assistant'

Kill The Production AssistantBy Jonathan Weichsel, MoreHorror.com

Kill The Production Assistant is the most ambitious project to come out of the indie horror scene in recent memory, and quite possibly the most innovative use of crowd funding since filmmakers began using it to finance their projects. The promise of crowd funding has always been that fans get the chance to be a part of the movie. Jessica Cameron, Brandon Slagle, and Devanny Pinn have decided to deliver on this promise by bringing the production to the fans' home towns, and fans should be very excited.

How it works is you contribute to the project's crowd funding page, just as you would contribute to any other film, and claim your reward. But, the added twist is that for every $25 contributed from your area, a pin will be placed in your area on a map, and when the campaign ends on august 29th, the production will drive to the areas with the most pins to shoot.

Kill The Production Assistant consists of two feature films and a documentary. The feature films are Mania, a Fucked up Lesbian Love Story, directed by Jessica Cameron, the mastermind behind the current festival hit Truth or Dare, and starring Truth or Dare's Devanny Pinn and Heather Dorf, and The Exiled, a dystopian science fiction story directed by Brandon Slagle and staring Jessica Cameron, Devanny Pinn, and Heather Dorf. The documentary will be called Kill the PA, and will follow the group's adventures as they travel across the country to make the films.

Jessica Cameron and Brandon Slagle are two very different filmmakers, so it will be interesting to see what each comes up with as they travel across the country shooting two films together. I loved Cameron's directorial debut, Truth or Dare, a brutal, totally fun party film. After Truth or Dare she said she would not direct again, which made me sad, so I am beyond excited to see her get back into the director's chair. Brandon Slagle is a prolific director of B movie inspired thrillers, and the dystopian The Exiled sounds like the perfect fit for him.

'Deadly Revisions' Movie Review

Deadly Revisions final PosterReviewed by Grace Fontaine, MoreHorror.com

Deadly Revisions
Written and Directed by Gregory Blair
Starring: Bill Oberst Jr. (Grafton Torn), Mikhail Blokh (Deter McManus), Cindy Merrill (Ally Morris), Lisa Hart (Kat Torn), Gregory Blair (Crawford Davis), Ronny Coleman (Doctor Myers), Shaun Gerardo (Ash), Dawna Leigh Heising (Nurse Vorhees) and Josh Patterson (Noose Man/Hatchet Man)

Any writer will tell you that Writers’ Block is The Worst because it could be considered a type of amnesia. There is nothing more defeating than sitting down in front of your word processor/writing pad/computer/wall of your padded cell and not finding the motivation or the desire to get to work. The ability to get over this obstacle all but takes a miracle for a writer to overcome be it through a creative muse, having a heck of a dream or an epiphany that suddenly puts it all into perspective. Now, while Writers’ Block is a bane, it usually doesn’t result in homicide… usually.

Grafton Torn, an amnesiac horror film writer who has just awoken from a coma. In an effort to fill in the enormous blanks of his memory, he turns to Doctor Ally Morris, a hypnotist, for assistance. Throughout these sessions however, Torn reveals unspeakable terrors which reveal terrifying revelations. They could not possibly be real… right?

Deadly Revisions is a robust little indie horror effort that came from the sick puppy mind of Gregory Blair who functioned as the director, writer AND onscreen player. Despite having a very small budget and somewhat of a hard bumpy ride into production, “Deadly Revisions” is a warm slice of healthy throwback and gleeful fun with strong references to genre greats such as the aforementioned DePalma, Raimi and Old Hitch with an insulin dose of Stephen King, Dean Koontz and Richard Layman.

Crawl or Die (2014) Film Review

Crawl or Die posterReviewed by Jesse Miller, MorrorHorror.com

Many years from now in a galaxy far, far away, a virus has spread around the Earth killing women. The first film in a planned trilogy, Crawl or Die centres its focus on a group of marines as they are tasked with leading the last non-infected and fertile woman on the planet to safety.

As they are forced to hide under the Earth, in what they discover is an abandoned facility, they’re about to discover that their mission is going to become a whole lot more difficult as in the darkness lurks something quite horrific.

Make no mistake, Crawl or Die, written and directed by Oklahoma Ward, knows exactly that it’s a B-movie romp. It knows it’s a low-budget affair, it knows it’s campy and it knows its limitations but rather than being affected by such elements, the film embraces these qualities and works around any difficulties -- coming up with an enjoyable creature feature that has a couple of neat ideas up its sleeve.

Though it has a science fiction element to it, this element is fleeting as it only serves to act as the McGuffin to drive the film because these characters are about to go through hell with the one non-infected woman on the planet so we better hope to hell she gets out of there.

Yeah okay, the film features a bunch of thinly drawn army dudes but you know what, so did Aliens and furthermore, the thrill doesn’t necessarily lie in the interactions and drama between these characters, it lies in the fact these meat sacks better get crawling to an exit or they’re going to die horrifically and in this regard, Crawl or Die delivers a satisfying and claustrophobic experience.

Lending to the claustrophobia are the dizzying camera angles, the tremendously effective musical score that incorporates a lot of industrial sounds that add to the rising tension and of course, the notion that these things are out there relentlessly hunting our team of ultimate badasses.

'Deadly Revisions' extended trailer and official poster releases

Deadly Revisions final Posterby Seth Metoyer, MoreHorror.com

A new extended trailer for the upcoming film DEADLY REVISIONS directed by Gregory Blair, starring Bill Oberst Jr. has been released along with an official poster. I think the trailer looks badass! Can't wait for this release.

The film has been accepted as an official selection of the New York Independent Film Festival. Check out the details and extended trailer below!

From The Press Release
With the announcement of writer/director Gregory Blair’s “DEADLY REVISIONS” becoming an official selection of the New York Independent Film Festival, fans can now get a longer peek at the film with a brand new trailer that reveals more of the creepy goings on. But one thing remains: Blair’s unique blend of psychological thriller and horror film is getting people excited.

The film has already garnered Blair the EOTM Award for “Best Director of an Indie Horror Film” and reviewers to laud it as “Mind Blowing” (Charred Remains Blogpost) and “Visionary! ” (A Bucket of Corn) with “Genuine Fun Jolts!” (Ain’t It Cool News). In addition to the New York Independent Film Festival, “DEADLY REVISIONS” is also an official selection of the FANTastic Horror Film Festival with more to be announced in the coming weeks.

In the film, Emmy Award winning horror movie favorite Bill Oberst, Jr. plays Grafton Torn—an amnesiac horror film writer for whom hypnotherapy and nightmares reveal terrifying images that just can’t be real. Or can they? A valentine to the horror genre, the film provides all the spooky staples fans adore while providing loving winks to masters such as Brian DePalma, Sam Raimi and Alfred Hitchcock.

Maximum Overdrive (1986) Review

Maximum OverdriveReviewed by Kevin Scott, MoreHorror.com

Maximum Overdrive (1986)
Written by: Stephen King
Directed by: Stephen King
Cast: Emilio Estevez (Bill), Pat Hingle (Bubba), Laura Harrington (Brett), Yeardley Smith (Connie), John Short (Curtis), J.C. Quinn (Duncan Keller), Holter Graham (Deke Keller), Frankie Faison (Handy)

Alright, I know that I probably can’t tell you anything new about this one, but sometimes I feel like I need to defend it as a wonderful and random anomaly that will probably never happen again. Stephen King as a director? AC/DC doing the complete score? Man, that sounds like horror/rock and roll heaven! In a way, it was. Once again, I do have some nostalgia for this film. It was the humble beginnings of one of my favorite cities, Wilmington, NC becoming a prolific film town. This film was made by DEG films along with a couple of other King adaptations like “Cat’s Eye” and “Silver Bullet”. They filmed in Wilmington because it was cheaper, and it broke the seal for major films today to be filmed there, most recently “Iron Man 3”. What’s even more cool is that it’s actually set in Wilmington, and being a North Carolinian, hearing how the trucks were headed to Greensboro, a place I knew well was hard to comprehend as an eighth grader.

“Maximum Overdrive” is a beautiful piece of pulp fiction. Based on King’s story “Trucks”, it tells the story of machines taking over the world while the planet is in the tail of a rogue comet. Right at the beginning we get a director cameo as an ATM machine calls Stephen King an asshole. He doesn't stick out at all and blends with all the other weirdness seamlessly. The epicenter of all the action is the Dixie Boy truck stop just outside of town, where short order cook and ex con, Bill puts up with being exploited by his slimy boss, Bubba because of his criminal record.

In the exciting conclusion of the film, Ted and Lauren fight to save each other and escape the evil that threatens their lives.
