tsunambee

“And out of the smoke locust came down upon the Earth and were given power like that of the scorpions. They were told to destroy the people that did not bear the mark of God. They had tails and stings like scorpions. Thy looked like horses prepared for battle with crowns of gold and wings that thundered like many chariots rushing into battle [SIC]. The people would suffer the agony for five months, and then in those days men will seek death, but death will elude them…….BUT DEATH WILL ELUDE THEM…” Revelations 9: 3-10

Now that I have set the stage for you, let’s get the technical stuff out of the way so we can get on to the movie itself.

Preview: 

This is gonna sting a little.

After a catastrophe strikes Los Angeles, survivors face an even greater threat, thousands of giant killer bees, ushering in the end of the world!

Writer/Director Milko Davis’s ferociously fun ode to golden age creature makes its digital debut June 13!

Review:

At this point I can not guarantee there will not be spoilers: Read ahead at your on caution!

Weighing heavily on a biblical apocalyptic theme, Milko (director) leads us into a world of turmoil and catastrophe.  Starting in the Sambisa Forest of Nigeria leading all the way to post-modern Los Angeles and beyond.

For his first major movie, Milko has a way of challenging social, economic and diversity stereotypes that could well, in a way, define him as a director (and I mean that in a good way).

What did the killer bees bring to the movie? Honestly, not a lot. The CGI was bad, but not unexpected. The acting ways way over-done, but again not unexpected.

I really was surprised with Casandra’s role. Exceptional performance from Thea Saccoliti. She has the best line of the movie. [Jessie: “Did God say anything about me?”] [Casandra: “Nope, but my teddy bear will be ok!”]

If you are looking for a different kind of review:

This movie has ZomBees in it! Literally, I can’t make this up! ZomBees!

TSUNAMBEE 2

“The multidudes [SIC] who sleep in the dust of Earth will awake! Some to everlasting life, others to shame and disgrace.”

Tsunambee will BEE (Ok, forgive that one pun) available on VOD June 13th and for DVD later this summer.

Movie Preview: American Exorcism


First off, let me say, I get a lot of movie screeners. Most just don’t fit my style of reviewing. When I saw this one in my inbox I knew it was right up my ally.

Let’s get the technical out of the way and then we can talk about the movie.

American ExorcismWriter and Director: Tripp Weathers

Cast:

Braxton Davis: (The Bay) as Will

Michael Filipowich  (24) as Damon

Jessica Morris: (Lucifer) (One Life To Live) as Janelle

Distributed by:

Uncork’d Entertainment

Produced by:

Thriller Films in association with Master Key Productions.

Plot:

Damon Richter thought he left the world of possessions, exorcisms, and evil behind until an old friend arrives with frightening information about his estranged daughter knowing that only his otherworldly skills can save her.

Preview:

Early on we meet Damon (Filipowich) A loving and caring father with some serious past. He uses his possession to fight the possessions of others. Caught in a battle between his family and his possession, he has a choice to make between his family or…..

10 years later; Damon is forced with the same choice again…

Review:

Actually, this is a completely different spin on the classic “Exorcism” story that we all know. Yes, it has some of the same elements, however (without giving spoilers) it is different. And, if you are willing to suspend belief, this is actually a fairly good horror movie.

Complaints:

The CGI left a lot to be desired. I get the budget, but still (no pun intended) it could have been a lot better. Although, as I have watched it twice now, it does add a certain nuance to it.

Overall:

If you are into horror and/or supernatural it is definitely worth the watch!

American Exorcism will be available on VOD May 2nd and on DVD August 1st

Orphan Black: Extended Trailer


orphanblackYou all know I love Orphan Black as much as anyone! And I literally just bounced up and down off my seat when I saw the new trailer during BBCA new show ClassDW!

From the Orphan Black YT page:

ors and accidental murders to suburban drug fronts, kidnappings, male clones and biological warfare – there isn’t anything thBlis lot hasn’t experienced. But through it all, they’ve remained united in their love and mission to keep each other safe at all costs. They’ve sacrificed their families, the loves of their lives, and any true sense of normalcy, all for the chance to liberate themselves from forces much bigger than any one of them. This season, they must all fight for the family they’ve chosen, for a new future and ultimately, for freedom.

Okay, this was a bit exciting to me! And I can not wait until #CloneClub is back on June 10th!

After Pluto: I am my new normal


Review of the new web series After Pluto

After pluto

Cast:

Lane Allison as Truman Welles

Griffin Burns as Wes Welles

Christopher Carver as Ian Barnes

Tiffany Commons as Diane Montgomery

Preview:

You are a best selling author, married to the perfect man, having the life you dreamed of and everything is perfe……. Forget about it….

Whoa! Let’s back up for a bit. Birthday partayyy!! *Shhuusssh* we all should just *shush*

It’s Trumans (Lane Allison) birthday and all of her friends are throwing her an unexpected party when then unexpected Tru shows up. As all of the guest listen in, Tru reviles that she has recently filed for divorce. *Suprise* Oh, wait, I did that early; Tru’s husband, Ian shows up to the party. *SUPRISE* …Umm, awkward!

Then a *trip* down the stairs…

Then let’s fall right into this….six weeks later…with no memory of what is going on….

What is left of your life with no memories? How do you put your life back together?

“I am my new normal”

We all love a marriage counselor who can’t get his stories straight! We just need the “meat and potatoes” of this. I love how the “therapist” turns things on himself!

“What is the last thing you remember” “Pluto being downgraded as a planet”

“Shit…” “And you are going to need to soon” I love how Tru an Ian are getting along now!

Just to be honest, I want somebody to love me the way Ian loves Tru!

There are things we need to talk about:

Especially the *slippery condom* But we will get to that later! I hope!

“We need to know about Emma!”

Can Diane be anymore awesome? (she is pretty damn awesome!)

Review:

Actually, I really loved this pilot of a web series!

Looking forward to more episodes, and I have it on good authority from After Pluto’s production company (A Right Forever Productions) that new episodes are coming soon!

the_fundamentals_of_caring_poster

Ok, going to preface this review by just saying three things:

1: I needed a good cry movie tonight; I had to get some things out of my system.

2: The rest of this review might not be SFW!

Oh, forgot, the technicalities:

The Fundamentals of Caring is a Netflix original movie based on the book “The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving”  by Jonathan Evison

Stars:

Paul Rudd: as Ben  (Friends, Anchorman, 40-year-old virgin)

Selena Gomez: as Dot (Yeah, all that teenage stuff, singer turned amazing actress.)

Jennifer Ehle: as Elsa (Fifty Shades of Grey, The Black List, also born in my home town!)

Craig Roberts: as Trevor (Being Human, Red Oaks)

Director: (Emmy Award Winning) Rob Burnett

Plot:

A man (Rudd) after suffering a horrible loss decides to reach out and, not in his best interest, become a caregiver. Trevor (Roberts), a bitter kid without a Dad decides to take him on.  How does this end up? Well, on a road trip across the country with the kid he is there to care-give for, fountains of youth are found….In a deep dark pit between them….

Review:

I needed a good cry movie tonight, and The Fundamentals of Caring did that for me! Actually, Selena Gomez kinda took the movie in a way I wasn’t expecting.Got to give her a lot of props for what she did in it. Was it a great movie? By no means…Does it fill a deep pit in your soul when you need a movie to cry too?…Yes, it absolutely does!

The Fundamentals of Caring is on Netflix now… and if you want to see a trailer you can…..

WAIT…WAIT…WAIT…. I said there was three things in my preface!!

3: fuck you…No, Fuck you…NO…FUCK you!…Now Stand up and take your piss! Stand up and take a PISS!

Told ya, Not all of this review would be SFW!

 

BTW: Trevor Conklin was handsome and cool……ALOHA!

Shark Exorcist: Movie Trailer and thoughts. #SharkExorcist


I just found about this movie today and my first thought was “Why hasn’t somebody thought of this before?!?” And then went, “Whoever thought of it, why!?!”

But, yes, this is an actual movie coming out straight to DVD / Blu-ray, and I can’t wait to get to watch it! My love of cheesy, bad, b-rated horror movies and all!

Premise:

A Nun summons Satan to inhabit the body of a Great White shark; which, in turn … well, a priest, an exorcism…who knows, who cares! A Shark Exorcism!

Who is behind it?

This is a WildEye Releasing movie. Who have had a couple of fun movies like “Walking Dead in the West” and “Killersaurus

Who is in it?

Angela Kerecz: “Dumb and Dumber to” “Hot Tub Time Machine 2

Bobby Kerecz: “Hot Tub Time Machine 2

See a pattern?…any way, I digress.

I have not seen the movie yet; but the poster looks great!
