Recap of Laurence R. Harvey on 'Without Your Head Horror Radio', 01/08/2015

Laurenc Harvey
by Vic Schiavone

Hosts Nasty Neal, Annabelle Lecter, and Terrible Troy welcomed longtime friend of the program Laurence R. Harvey, best known for his role as Martin Lomax in the movie “The Human Centipede 2”. During the course of the 1 hour and 45-minute interview Laurence discussed several of his current projects including the long-awaited “The Human Centipede 3”, due for release sometime in the first half of 2015.

Highlights included the following:

• WTH: What can you tell us about your character in Human Centipede 3 or when it is coming out?

LRH: “Well, the character is called Dwight Butler…What can I say? I can’t say very much. I have no idea when it’s going to be released; I haven’t been told. I haven’t been given a date for the cast and crew screening. All I saw was what Tom (Six) put on Twitter yesterday, which was that the MoviePilot website had announced that it was going to be released on June 20th, and Tom pooh-poohed that and said it would be out before then. That’s all I know; it’s going to be out before June”

• WYH: Is there any worry at all that “Human Centipede 3” won’t live up to expectations?

LRH: “No…As I have always said, it’s not going to be like the first film or the second film; it’s going to have its own distinct look, style, and feel. It’s more of a satire, it’s more American, rich colors, and yeah, it’s not going to try and outdo the gore of Part 2, but the gory scenes in Part 3 are ones that really make you kind of cross your legs and OOOH…I just think that some people expect it to be more gory and more horrible than Part 2, and I’m saying there’s a little less gore and it’s more shocking in other ways. Part 2, the last half hour it’s just one thing after another, BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM. Here, in this film, the idea kind of evolves over time, it becomes this huge thing and then there are moments…the violence isn’t all saved till the very end. I doubt it will be as much of an ordeal to go through the violence, but the moments of violence are there to make you go OOOH, and they’re kind of spread out throughout the narrative. I think I may have overstepped what I can say there, but that’s just my opinion. I haven’t seen it when it’s edited, or what it looks like with the color treatment or how it is with the sound, so maybe I’m talking complete rubbish.”

VANish (2015) review

VANish CoverBy Robert Thompson

What do you get when you mix part action flick, part horror flick, part thriller, and part buddy comedy/road trip movie? Probably something fairly close to VANish. After getting to enjoy Dark Sky Film's most recent release, “Starry Eyes”, for review, I was in no way going to turn down the chance to enjoy their next one.

So, the story set up is this: Jack (Austin Abke), and Max (Bryan Bockbrader, who also writes, and directs) are buddies that decide to kidnap Emma (Maiara Walsh), and hold her ransom, wanting five million bucks from her father (Danny Trejo). Along the way they get help from Afghanistan Vet Shane (Adam Guthrie). However, as the story progresses, we learn that not everyone on this little road trip from hell are who they say they are.

That's basically all I want to give away, as I really enjoyed the flick, overall, and you can soon, as well. You might check it out and wonder why it's getting reviewed for a horror site, at the end of the day, but the elements are certainly there for it to fall in the horror category in many ways. And I'm a fan of melding various genres together.

The writing was decent. The decision to set basically the entire movie in the van was a great choice, and really gave all the performers a chance to show their merits. All of the characters were unique in their own right, and I didn't particularly get tired of any one character. The fact that the movie is barely over the seventy minute mark helps this. It tells a complete story, in a tight, and well-constructed manner.

Honeyspider (2014) review

Honey SpiderReviewed by Grace Fontaine

Honeyspider (2014)
Director: John Hasty
Starring: Mariah Brown, Frank J. Aard, and Anjali Alm-Basu
Writer: Kenny Capteron

IMDB synopsis: It's Halloween day in 1989 and college student Jackie Blue wants to enjoy a quiet birthday in the midst of a chaotic semester at school. Her friend Amber has other ideas and persuades Jackie to come to the annual Monster Mash party on campus after her shift at the local movie theater. As murder plays out on the silver screen during the theater's Halloween night Horrorthon, Jackie falls under a strange spell, all while a mysterious stranger watches over her every move. As the night unfolds, Jackie slowly unravels and everyone around her is turning up dead. Jackie finds herself helplessly trapped like prey in a spider's web, and all she can do is try to survive the night!

The power of nostalgia is a mighty force indeed. In todays' jaded society, when a film is audacious enough to enforce and treasure cinema of a bygone era it can either be met with warm felicitations or cold-handed cynicism. John Hastys' 1980's celebration of Halloween of the VHS halcyon days is a fond if off the rack throwback that has more than enough enthusiasm and desire to please those who are open to its' ways, but more decisive and genre-hardened folks will most likely not find appeasement with. Well, you can't please everybody, but for my little drops of plasma, 'Honeyspider' (cute title, by the way) is an affectionate cuddle that I was happy to return, the way I would greet a family member who I don't know TOO well but I have great love for just the same.

I've seen quite a few solid if flawed low-budge, retroist films in my time and while 'Honeyspider''s logic is not based on creative originality, it more than makes up for in atmosphere, sense of adventure and fun based on the events and the stock characters that we come to expect from the late night horror sleepover videos we used to watch as children. Mariah Brown is a pleasure to watch as lead character, the charmingly named 'Jackie Blue' because while she isn't a bombastic character, she is perhaps the most grounded amongst the chaos and sanguine mayhem that starts to surround her. All she wants is peace, but the universe has selected Ms. Blue to be the hearld of good sense among seasonal and the mental madness of a loony.

Not Your Average Poker Movie

Poker NightWhat is generally considered as a dying genre of late, poker films have seen their popularity dwindle in recent years. With big budget Hollywood films like the recently released Paramount Pictures flick, The Gambler flopping amid stiff competition from Unbroken and Into The Woods, many have questioned its staying power in today’s movie landscape.

Cue, writer and director Greg Francis, who was acutely aware of this, but having the cunningness to market his film in a different way, he has garnered ‘Poker Night’ an altogether different audience.

As the movie may well have drawn in a crowd from the exasperated niche, the film doesn’t just rely on this audience for viewing figures alone. Although centered round a poker table, there’s very little poker play to contend with in this crime, horror thriller.

The film’s lead character, Stan Jeter played by Beau Mirchoff is an upstart cop who is being mentored by his fellow peers in the way in which he must conduct himself at work.

The way in which Francis intersperses fast-paced scenes with the moral compass of Jeter’s peers also adds to the film’s appeal. As the veteran cops swap stories about what made them famous in their profession, the film revels in the absurd and gives the audience a breather amid the unrelenting scenes where Jeter is having his mind and body tested to the limit.

It may well be the first poker horror movie that has been created but with Francis’ guile, he manages to pull off an intriguing Dexter-meets-Rounders type movie with Jeter being the Mike McDermott (Matt Damon) character trying to avoid the many hurdles that await him – albeit via a maniac psychopath.

'Cut!' (2014) review

Cut! Movie CoverBy Jonathan Weichsel

Cut! 2014
Director: David Rountree
Cast (In credits order): Sam Scarber , Dahlia Salem , David Banks , David Rountree , William McNamara , Gabrielle Stone , Suze Lanier-Bramlett , Chris Moir, Allen Maldonado, Rosie Garcia

Cut! is a satire of the indie horror "industry" and a clever, dark parody of indie horror films that both embraces and sends up the clichés that we have come to expect from straight to DVD horror. It is also a very good movie that ingeniously disguises itself as a very bad one.

Travis is a manager at a studio warehouse with an encyclopedic knowledge of horror, who dreams of making a horror movie, but despite the wealth of resources around him, can't seem to come up with the resources to make his dreams come true. His friend and coworker Lane is an unstable ex-con with a penchant for pushing people's buttons.

Travis and Lane decide to make a horror movie, but because they don't have the resources, they come up with this cinema vérité thing where Lane picks up prostitutes and scares them while Travis hides somewhere with a camera and captures it. Things get out of control when Lane develops a blood lust and starts actually killing the women, and for some reason Travis keeps making the movie.

The first two acts of the film are very, very bad and feature some of the worst clichés of 21st century horror. They are full of lame, by the numbers storytelling, weak character motivation, depictions of Los Angeles that seem like they were conceived by somebody who lacks the most basic understanding of reality, and plot holes at almost every plot point. While watching I kept asking myself questions such as, how could Lane, who looks and acts like a stereotypical movie serial killer from the first moment we see him, not get fired from his job? How could Travis, a reasonably intelligent guy who knows a ton about film, actually believe he is making a movie? Why are there blatant prostitutes on every street corner of Los Angeles? In short, I was preparing myself to rip the movie a new asshole.

Pernicious (2015) movie review

PerniciousReviewed by Kevin Scott

Pernicious (2015)
Written by: James Cullen Bressack, Taryn Hillin
Directed by: James Cullen Bressack
Cast: Ciara Hanna (Alex), Emily O’Brien (Julia), Jackie Moore (Rachel), Russell Geoffrey Banks (Colin), Byron Gibson (Byron), Jack Prinya (Male Nurse), Sohanne Bengana (Vlad), Jared Cohn (Shane), Sara Malakul Lane (Samorn)

*Possible Spoilers Below*

I’m always running a formula in my mind when I watch any movie or a horror movie in particular. Well, I’ve got some attractive ladies in a foreign land, this has got to be a kidnapping or a sex trafficking film. My sensibilities are my own worst enemy sometimes, because with James Cullen Bressack’s film “Pernicious”, it really is like that leftover Whitman’s sampler from Valentine’s Day. You never know what you are going to get.

It begins with three young women from the States arriving in Thailand for a humanitarian teaching gig. This film is the perfect example of the less you know about the film going in, the more fun going along for the ride is going to be. It could be a slasher film at this point for all we know. Young, nubile girls moving into a strange house. It’s like summer camp or a house by the lake, only with better architecture. The house is splendid by the way, with eastern accents inside and out, and a curious golden statue of a little girl that heads up the list of exotic brick-a-brack.

After settling in, they make a trek into town, and meet these Eurotrash guys at the local bar. In a moment of poor decision making, they invite them back to the house. Maybe the sex trafficking angle might come in here. These guys are clearly looking at the American girls as the flavor of the week, and when the house liquor runs out, the girls drink from a sketchy flask that one of them pulls from a coat pocket. Here’s where the familiar road splits.

Exclusive: 'Ballet of Blood' wraps principal photography

Ballet of Bloodby Gerald Beanery

In a maneuver of delicate dance, the rendezvous of clinical upset has been pushed, unpadded and unrestrained to a divine sedative of cinematic congruence. The motion picture that defied the shrine of mountain X and manipulated its own story to an unbreaking point. The bloody marionettes left the stage like thankless children in harmonious conclusion. Jared Masters’ Magnum Opus.

Frolic Pictures’ prettiest price tag yet, for a photoplay made in the 2010s era. If microwaves were cinemas, then molecules would have been riled up, in Ballet of Blood, the 9th feature film fathered by Hollywood’s unprecedented walking controversy.

The Prince of Horror Erotica has perhaps graduated to a level of surrealism few films capture or cannibalize.

Sydney Raye portrays Nisa, the key character who slayed several sensitive souls, with psychotic and alluring drive. She charged into the performance with several doses of moving mental breakthroughs. Dallas Chandler is a white chocolate that doesn’t melt and is unavailable in gift baskets because she is pure and no one deserves her. Jacqueline Marie Alberto might as well lock herself up in the tallest tower of the biggest cinematic castle, with the deepest mote, because if any knight shall have her, or understand the complexity of the role she took on, would be a magical knight, indeed.

The simplicity of fondness and stark-raving proprietary is the real-born Rubi Garcia. The sensation came from somewhere that must have had a climate suitable for evolving women into mystical golden souled sapphires with several alluring qualities that shall not be mentioned because it would be overly gloating phrases. Fantasy phantom Dawna Lee Heising concurred the role of Harmonia, the spirit of the lady in the music box, a captivating testimony to marketable fairies of future days and desires. Garrett Morosky graces the film with his abdominal mastery and cute characteristics of masculinity in all its forms, a ballerina so balanced in the art that even his dance teacher, Saul, played by Geo Sargent, couldn’t keep his hands off him.

Recap of Herschell Gordon Lewis on 'Without Your Head Horror Radio', 12/11/2014

by Vic Schiavone

Hosts Nasty Neal, Annabelle Lecter, and Terrible Troy welcomed “The Godfather of Gore” Herschell Gordon Lewis. Herschell, along with producer James Saito, participated in a roughly 75-minute interview which centered around the new anthology film “Herschell Gordon Lewis’ Bloodmania”, which is due to be released in Spring 2015.

Highlights included the following:

• WYH: What made you decide to get back into making films?

HGL: “This is what I do. I have a good time; I enjoy the business immensely…I feel too many of the movies today are…the word I use is “derivative”. You think you’re watching the same movie over and over and over again. Besides which, they lack a total sense of humor. I think the industry has gone far enough now that that is an element that we can add profitably both from our point of view in getting people to look at it and from their point of view so after they’ve screened this thing, whether it’s in a theater, or in their bedroom, or on the little handheld device which I still don’t understand as an entertainment medium. After that, they do not say ‘Yeah, I’ve seen all that before.’ They don’t say that with “Herschell Gordon Lewis’ Bloodmania.””

• WYH: Was it always important to you that at the end of the day there was some humor in your films?

HGL: “When I shot “Blood Feast”, “Blood Feast” has a couple of distinctions. First of all, it was the first splatter film ever by anybody since motion pictures were invented back by Edison or somebody. Second, it had to be one of the cheapest movies anybody ever made, and the combination of that is quite bizarre. And yet, with all those limitations, “Blood Feast” has a spot in history. And after I saw that movie, having cut it, and being forced to screen my own work, which is like forcing a dog to eat its own excrement, I said to David Friedman (who was my partner at the time), “What if we made a decent one?”...So we shot “Two Thousand Maniacs!”, which was the first one that had even an overtone of humor. I would sit anonymously in theaters…just as though I was somebody who walked into the theater and look for audience reactions…When I looked at that, I saw what got people to move slightly in the chairs, to shift upward a bit. They were expecting something different, and we gave it to them with little touches of humor. Eventually, with a movie I made called “The Gore Gore Girls”, humor and gore became 50/50 partners, and that taught me something else about this business. Anybody over the age of let’s say 45 or 50 felt we should be executed. Anybody under the age of 45 or 50 said ‘Hey that was entertaining’. Well, that’s something I hadn’t expected about one of my pieces of crap; that somebody would say it’s entertaining. So, it gave me another dimension on this kind of movie.”

Wolves (2014) review

WolvesReviewed by Kevin Scott

Wolves (2014)
Written by: David Hayter
Directed by: David Hayter
Cast: Lucas Till (Cayden Richards), Stephen McHattie (John Tollerman), John Pyper-Ferguson (Wild Joe), Merritt Patterson (Angelina Timmins), Jason Momoa (Conner), Janet Laine-Green (Clara Tollerman), Melanie Scrofano (Gail Timmins), Adam Butcher (Deke), Philip Maurice Hayes (Kino)

I saw a random preview of this film at the theatre before the feature film that I was there to see. It was the climax battle scene between the two primary characters. Both were wolfed out and talking some trash. I never heard from “Wolves” again until I saw it streaming on Netflix. I reserve judgment as one should until I actually watch something. I always have a golden strand of optimism to grasp on to. When it comes to werewolf films, I’ve found myself becoming a little pessimistic. The last film that really nailed it was “Dog Soldiers”.

I love the werewolf genre and I think one of the best things to play off of is the human desire to be the alpha dog becoming fully realized by turning into a monster. The great characters in werewolf films are the ones that embrace it and have no remorse at all. It makes you hate them for their lack of compassion, but also question yourself as far as what you would do. “The Howling” with lycanthropy being the ultimate tool for a self-help group, how awesome is that? “Dog Soldiers” also mentioned that the people that lived in the cottage where they were held up in were usually good kind people. In my humble opinion, the dichotomy of the human nature has to be in there somewhere.
