Child Of God (2013) Film Review.RabitBandini Productions,Made in-land.
Directed by James Franco. Distributed by Spotlight Pictures. Rated R,
certificate 18 UK, running time 104 minutes.
I have just finished watching this movie,with mainly positive reviews on Amazon,then dreadful reviews on certain online film sites. I just wondering we're they watching a different film to the one I've just watched as this is a powerhouse of a movie. It is probably a very nasty biased opinion as the film is directed by James Franco,who in the movie business,nobody seems to like. This film is bleak,it is depressing,and degrading in places. But it shows the mental decline of an individual,forced out of normal society,by his pears,then they wonder why he turns feral later.
Lester Ballard is an unhinged young man,but when thrown out of his family home,after his Dads suicide,he has nowhere to go,he finds an old shack in the woods,he makes his home,by scavenging off the land. But the more isolated he becomes,the more removed from humanity he becomes. A chance encounter,with a young couple,found dead in a car,to a joint suicide pact,he degrades the female,by having sex with the corpse,which he takes her body back to his cabin,and then pretends to be husband and wife. Which to some is why this movie had been so negatively received. The subject matter of Necrophilia is a terrible one, but with a childlike feral man,you almost feel sorry for him,as he really does not have the mental capacity to understand what he is doing is wrong. I think that is why the film upset so many people,but it never set out to be controversial,and the scenes are not used as a glorifying set piece,like some strange little Horror film. The man is mentally incapable of understanding right from wrong. The whole movie is trying to make that point. An outstanding one man performance from Scott Haze,as the whole 90 minute running time is on him,he is an outstanding actor, I think mainly a stage actor,but he is outstanding in this.but got criminally overlooked by the Oscar board,because of its subject matter no doubt. Can I recommend this film as a great film to watch,well no because it is a truly disturbing piece of cinema. But to watch for the performance of Scott Haze, yes you should,and James Franco, you have turned an unworkable depressing book into a a bleak and disturbing film also. You are certainly a talent to watch out for in the future.
I came across this trailer on YouTube yesterday, and it is doing the rounds again on social media, a trailer first showing in 2015, that got everyone talking " is this for real" " this can not be a film can it?" As it turns out no, it is a trailer that is well made, but certainly is not going to be a film anytime soon.
A one joke trailer about a randy ghost intent on jerking men off, using handjobs, I'm surprised the tag line wasn't "Cumming soon".
This was obviously made by men with a running narrative that women cannot give a decent handjob, and having them do the deed is worse than death, instead you have a ghost who wants to jerk all men to death.
It is as awful as you'd expect it to be, but I still found myself chuckle a few times, it is rude, crude, insinuating, and in fairness harmless fun, a film if made I would actually probably watch, it certainly looks better than the recent Cabin Fever, Evil Dead 2013.
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 …
A film that strangely has been long forgotten, from 1980, and a film that has no mention about any remake or reboot. That is how this good film has been left on the shelf, compared to other slashers of that decade. Strange as it has possibly the best onscreen kills, with amazing practical effects from Gore master Tom Savini.
A jilted soldier returns home from world war 2, hearing just before that his girlfriend has replaced him with another man. At the graduation ball of 1945, Rosemary is brutally slain alongside her new boyfriend. Shocking the town, that another ball has been postponed for 35 years. It is now 1980 the ball has been agreed once more, and the jilted soldier is not happy and decides to slay the party goers once more.
Formally known as the Prowler especially in the States, but changed to Rosemary's Killer in the UK. The film apart from the great Gore effects is quite average though, and probably why it has never been remade. With the jilted soldier in…
