‘Nobody Can Cool’ Review

26 November 2014 1:17 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Catherine AnnetteNick PrincipeNikki Bohm, David Atlas | Written and Directed by Dpyx

Nobody Can Cool takes a simple concept and uses it to great effect. An independent film in every sense, it is evidence that you do not need big budget dollars to create unnerving tension and edge of your seat excitement. For those looking for an effective modern twist on old school noir you will find it with Nobody Can Cool.

The story follows Susan (Catherine Annette) and David (David Atlas) a young couple who are looking to have a weekend getaway out in the country. They soon find their friend’s home they thought would be vacated is currently being used by some suspicious characters. The question becomes are these strange occupiers just the product or a miscommunication or are their plans far more sinister.

David and Susan come across as the couple you never want to hang out with. »

‘After Midnight’ VOD Review

9 November 2014 8:44 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Tim Abell, Marliss Amiea, Catherine Annette, Richard Grieco, Erika Jordan, Tawny Kitaen, Rya Meyers, David Novak, Christine Nguyen, Bobby Rice, Don Scribner | Written by Fred Olen Ray, Andrew Helm | Directed by Fred Olen Ray

As a teen just getting into the world of low-budget horror movies, and straight to VHS fare, there were a handful of directors whose work I would buy and/or rent without fail and without any prior knowledge (besides the spiel on the back of the box) of what i was getting into. One of those directors was Fred Olen Ray, the genius behind such films as Scalps, Star Slammer, Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers, Evil Toons, Cyclone and the awesome Scream Queen Hot Tub Party. However in the intervening years it’s safe to say I haven’t had the urge to watch as many of his flicks as I did in the 80s/90s heyday »

‘Lucky Bastard’ Review

16 May 2014 7:22 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Don McManus, Jay PaulsonBetsy Rue, Chris Wylde, Catherine Annette, Lee Kholafai, Lanny Joon, Clint Brink, Deborah Zoe | Written by Robert Nathan, Lukas Kendall | Directed by Robert Nathan

When I read the story line for Lucky Bastard I couldn’t help but remember the scene in Boogie Nights in the limo with Roller Girl (Heather Graham) being served up to a “fan”, that didn’t end well and neither does Lucky Bastard.  Things never go well when reality is mixed with fantasy…

Lucky Bastard is a website run by Mike (Don McManus) which invites fans to have sex with porn stars.  Dave (Jay Paulson) is the latest fan to be selected, and the porn star Ashley Saint (Betsy Rue) is less than happy about doing a scene with an amateur.  As the shoot nears and things start getting tense, will Mike get the money shot he expects?

Movie Review – Lucky Bastard (2014)

14 May 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Lucky Bastard, 2014.

Directed by Robert Nathan.

Starring Don McManus, Jay Paulson, Betsy Rue, Chris Wylde and Catherine Annette.

Synopsis:

When the adult website Lucky Bastard runs a contest giving the winner a night with a hot porn star, the outcome turns from fantasy to horror in a deadly nightmare no one could possibly have expected.

In recent years the success of films like Paranormal Activity and Cloverfield have seen a marked increase in ‘found footage’ films. It’s almost become an easy option for film-makers too, allowing a very quick, cheap shoot where anything that feels a little sloppy, and not quite on the mark with the performers, can pass as naturalistic. There have been so many found footage films in recent years that it has almost become an epidemic. Rarely has a sub-genre become so popular among film-makers of all levels, from aspiring to established. Are audiences getting tired of them? »

Indie Spotlight Review: Nobody Can Cool

by Heather Wixson

Nobody Can Cool is the rather impressive directorial debut from up-and-coming filmmaking duo Dpyx, Marcy Boyle and Rachel Holzman, who crafted a blisteringly taut and thoughtful indie crime thriller with a palpable sense of tension from start to finish. A gritty and engaging tale of deceit, violence and desperation, Nobody Can Cool is anchored by a breakout performance by Nick Principe (best known from his work in the Laid to Rest series, Madison County and »
