Fear The Walking Dead. Series review. Produced by AMC. Created by
Robert Kirkman, Dave Erickson.
I have just finished watching this mini series,and what can I say "WOW". I had already reviewed the Pilot last week,and although slow moving,I said it had promise,with an underlying creepiness,and unnerving feel, of what might happen.
I was for once not disappointed, I will review,and run through every six short episodes.
Episode 1 Pilot.
This time the series is set in Los Angeles, not in Georgia,we have no Rick Crimes,or Daryl,we do have a very dysfunctional family for once. Two high school teachers living together the Clark's and the Manawa's from broken families,with teenage children the man's kid hates him for leaving his Mum,and the woman has two children herself with a teenage daughter Alicia,and an older son Nick,who has a heroin problem. And this isn't always the best time to go cold turkey,during a Zombie outbreak,and apocalypse.
When the teenage lad wakes up in his usual drug den,to find a woman eating another's mans face,even in his drug induced state,he knows something isn't right,panicking,running into the road to be hit by a car,his family does not believe his story,and believe it was just a bad drug trip he was on.
It is then we have a little build up to strange things happening in Los Angeles,nothing straight away,but a very slow burn,leading to something no one can explain near the end of this episode,with a unnerving feel to it,with a sense of foreboding,you know you are in for a great series.
Episode 2 "So close, yet so far"
We now have the Clark family Back together, Travis Manawa has gone to locate his teenage son with his ex wife,who is caught in riots,due to a police officer shooting the above woman. Something is definitely not right with the world. During the riots Travis takes refuge with a Spanish family the Salazar family,refugees from El Salvaldor,where the father becomes a pivotal part of this series later on.
Madison Clark returns to her school,in the hope of raiding the medicine cupboards,for any drug that could ween her son off heroin,whilst bumping into another student,who has heard that the viral infection is spreading,and news is finally reaching the social networks. When the principle of the school attacks them both,and Madison smashes his head in with a fire extinguisher.
This is when we now now that this outbreak is taking over.
Episode 3 "The Dog"
With this being probably the best episode of this sixth parter. Madison and Travis are reunited with each other,with his ex wife and child with him,also the Salazar family,has taken refuge with them,after leaving the city,and there business,after the riots. With the City loosing all power,and going into complete darkness,Madison knows that a neighbor has a shotgun,and she and her family break in to retrieve the shotgun,with the neighbour Susan already turned,and not being able to open,or squeeze through the small gap in her fence. Why it is called a Dog,they rescue a German Shepard,wining at their door,who they loose in,to eventually be eaten by the above other neighbor,when they leave a door open,to go next door,with two shotgun blasts to the head finally takes him down. Why is this the best episode,it has everything,the first real zombie attacks,the family realise they are no longer safe in the place of normal safety their home. And they pack provisions to escape to the desert and hopefully ride everything out. This episode has it all suspence,some great violence,some great acting. This is the episode that I realised this series could be something decent.
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…
