Happy Death Day film review. Distribution from Universal Pictures, produced by Blumhouse. Directed by Christopher B. Landon.

Image
Tree is about to have a very bad day, again, and again and again.
College Grad Tree, a self centred bitch, who you take an instant dislike to, who is foul to everyone.
Treats everyone like dirt, then wonders why someone would want her dead. With a groundhog Day loop thing going on every time she is murdered she has to live through the same Monday the 18th, until she can find out her wants her dead, solve her own murder, and maybe become a better person in the mean time. The thing is I really wanted to hate this movie, but I couldn't, because of the performance from Jessica Rothe as Tree, in her first scream queen role, starring previously in La La Land, and Netflix's Parallels.
She is so likeable and believable in the role, although playing the bitch perfectly, she is deep down a damaged soul, still mourning the death of her mother, and her grief is her anger towards fellow People.
With some inventive kills, and no matter what Tree does, the day always ends in her death, with…

Dark Mountain (2016) Film Review.White Lotus Productions, Ash Films, Surewould Presentation. Directed by Lou Simon. Distributed by Uncork'd Entertainment. rated R, running time 87 minutes.

This film is another prime example of a marketing team, and distribution rights changing the name in a different country, with a catchy title and cover to grab your attention. This film has already been marketed before under the name All Girls Weekend, released in July of 2016 originally.
Think of this film as a cross between The Happening,The Decent, and a little Blair Witch thrown in for good measure, a story of four high school friends reuniting many years after graduation.
Where they go off track for a three mile trek in the woods, that takes days,as they get lost, and get taken out one by one by the creepy forest,as mother nature is the serial killer,and requires blood to sustain itself. This film is a strange one as none of the girls like each other very much, so why would they want to spend a weekend together, in winter, on a team building type thing. So with the girls not being the best of friends and bitching at each other all the time, we have no time to be really empatheti…

The Green Inferno (2013) Film Review.Directed by Eli Roth.Distributedby Blumhouse Tilt, Universal Pictures.

Image
So finally I have seen this,made in 2013, but with a limited cinema release late last year,why has it taken so long to come out? Is it any good? Well the answer is no. My only thought for the delay,is well,
it is not very good,and I'm thinking,this must've been a strong contender to be shelved by said film company.

With some terrible acting,actors who are looking like they are almost laughing between scenes,fart,shit,and dysentery,is not needed in this film. And the torture scene of the fat guy,is only put in to offend,and to gross out people. The same scene could've been done better,by hinting of the violence,sounds effects,and watching the faces of the people captured,looking on would be far more scary.

Eli Roth though does not do subtle, directing like an excitable child,wanting to show more blood on screen,a man who has been let loose in the Gore makeup box,and is determined to use every prosthetic,and corn syrup by the gallons.
Don't people know,that sometimes se…

Boneboys or Butcher Boys (2012) Film Review. Directed by Duane Graves,Justin Meeks.

Image
What do you get if you cross Judgement Night, with Hostel you get this film set in Texas. Called Butcher Boys,or also known as Boneboys. A very strange film I think about cannibalism being the Drug of choice,and also business for a small number of gentleman. With young Females mainly on the Menu,especially Virginal teenage girls.

Four Teenage kids on a night out celebrating a17Th Birthday,Brother and sister Mikey,and Sissy,and boyfriend and girlfriend Kenny,whose birthday it is and his feisty girlfriend Barbie,who actually is the cause of all the mayhem that happens,through her stupidity and actions.

Anyway the four kids end up in a wrong part of town,and unfortunately run into this gang of lads,who decide they need a lesson taught,especially to the boys,and maybe the Girls will be on someone's menu.
we have in sorts firstly a chase,and survive movie,which turns into sickening and barbaric scenes,of Cannibalism,and torture movie of young girls,being prepped for quite simply a mea…

Eat Film Review. (2014). Edited,Written,and Directed by Jimmy Weber.

Image
Although the premise of this film is a horrible one,a failed actress,who takes self harm to the next level,the message of this movie,is a very clever one,how many films actually deal with mental illness,yet alone,one about self harm,that many people with depression,unfortunately do. Yes we do not eat ourselves literally,but the whole self harm thing,is about hating yourself that much,you want to punish yourself,and by doing so inflicting pain on yourself.
What profession,is more demeaning,and soul destroying,than acting,something that can literally eat you away to the core. Failed auditions,not being liked,seeing others succeed,whilst you fail,to the strongest of minds,it must be soul destroying,but to someone,who knows thier age is against them,a damaged soul anyway,how can you possibly compete with the twenty something's who are willing to suck as much d##k,to get the role they want.
This is a companion piece to Starry Eyes,which is about the same profession,where that film is …

The Wyoming Incident, one clever hacking, or was it something more sinister

Image
The Wyoming Incident is a strange one, when a mysterious broadcast appeared on local TV, in the Country of Niobrara that lasted for several minutes, with various disembodied heads, and strange wordings on-screen.
The fact that the flashing imagery changed every few seconds, this wouldn't have made much news, the fact afterwards people were being admitted to GP's and hospital's complaining of severe headache, sickness, and hallucinations brought on by this hack. The even stranger thing is paranormal experts were brought in to examine the footage, and the most bizarre thing is the frequency was not of a normal frequency but being between 17 and 19 Hz which when played for a period of time causes the eyes to vibrate, and too actually shake your brain.
No one has ever been caught for this hacking, yet no one has any clue either where it originated from, as it was left with absolutely no trace, leading experts to believe it could have come from a paranormal sources.
We shall n…

Fear Inc 2016 film review. Directed by Vincent Masciale, produced by Lone Suspect. Certificate 15, running time 95 minutes.

There is an urban legend about a phone number you ring, to get rid of someone. You ring this number, they say" they're busy" you hang up and they phone you back, if you don't give them a name, you or a member of your family will be next. Fear Inc works on the same premises a mythical service designed to tailor make the scare of your life, you just don't know when it'll start and how it will end.
Fear Inc is a rollercoaster of a ride, with more twists and turns than any scare ride.
The story of an Hollywood actor, facinated with all things horror, after going to a recent horror maze and being totally bored, he is given a business card for this company Fear Inc. so the day before Halloween he rings the number to hear them say " we're full" thinks no more of it, and whilst his girlfriend and his bestie and his wife are enjoying Halloween, mask intruders break into his mansion. He thinks it's part of the game from Fear Inc, and fails to take any…
