DVD Review - Humanity's End (2009)

Humanity's End, 2009.

Directed by Neil Johnson.

Starring Jay Laisne, Rochelle Vallese, Cynthia Ickes, William Tulin, Kari Nissena and Peta Johnson.

Synopsis:

The last man in the universe is hunted down by a hybrid race known as the Nephilim.

As a self-considered feminist, this movie was almost like blasphemy. Not a good start at all.

DVD Review: Humanity’s End

Humanity’S End

Stars: Jay Laisne, Rochelle Vallese, Cynthia Ickes, William David Tulin, Kari Nissena | Written by Neil Johnson, Michael Jonathan Smith | Directed by Neil Johnson

Humanity’s End is a film that just confuses me, it’s got a plot that is pretty forgetful and bad special effects and if it relied on them then it would be no good. For me it would have been a total disaster if it was not for one character, Derasi Vorde.

Taking obvious inspiration from Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, Babylon 5 and countless other sci-fi shows and films, Humanity’s End deals with the extinction of the human race and what appears to be the last known humans in the universe. A huge alien army are trying to hunt them down and destroy them. I guess Derasi Vorde is the last man in the universe meaning that if the human race is

Light in the Darkness

28Dla supporter and talent agent Sandra L. Rostirolla drops me a line on "Callous," an independent from director Joey Lanai. Premiering at the Riverside Rilm Festival, in California, the film tells the tale of a Native American dealing with family abuse this Friday April 24. Also, highlighting the musical score of another supporter to 28Dla Kurt Oldman the films musical soundtrack is rich in acoustical guitars and haunting instrumentals. Some of Oldman's work along with additional information on "Callous," can be found at the films website past the break.
