Beyond Fright Review: Oliver, Stoned

The man child is a concept that feels pretty heavy in male driven comedies, more in particular to those starring Seth Rogen and Adam Sandler. Adult men who refuse to grow up and partake in toilet humor rack up box office tickets and seemingly influence a generation of young adults surrounded by statistics provided by memes that have gone viral on social networks. The philosophy of instantly sharing to thousands within seconds instills the need to swallow without tasting or giving a second thought as to what is being ingested. These comedies are providing the same after taste: not much thought went into it, but you’ll be spitting the best one liners to your friends.

After going to break a 50 at a convenient store, Oliver (Seth Cassell, dressed and made up in his best Seth Rogen) comes back to find the car he was hired to bring back to

Hold Your Breath But Press Play: A Movie Review

*there are spoilers here. Director: Jared Cohn. Writers: Geoff Meed and Kenny Zinn. Cast: Katrina Bowden, Randy Wayne, Erin Marie Hogan, Steve Hanks, Brad Slaughter, Seth Cassell, Darin Cooper, Jordan Pratt-Thatcher and Lisa Younger. Hold Your Breath, or for those in the Twitterverse #HoldYourBreath, is remarkable for being one of the first films to premiere in theatres from production company The Asylum. As a horror film, Hold Your Breath is not truly remarkable in itself. However, the film is still a fun watch, despite some moronic characters. Is having sex in a morgue really a good idea? The film's ending stands out for offering some interesting suspense, while the film's supernatural rules ground the film in a dramatic reality. Hold Your Breath is a popcorn movie that will entertain most horror fans. The story begins with seven characters heading out on the proverbial camping trip.

30 Rock’s brilliant Katrina Bowden has been using her off-seasons in recent years brilliantly, starring in instant-cult-classic horror-comedy Tucker and Dale vs. Evil back in 2010 alongside Alan Tudyk and Tyler Labine.

She was seen earlier this year in Piranha 3Dd, and has two more horror films on the horizon – Nurse 3-D and #HoldYourBreath. The first trailer for the second has now debuted over at Apple, giving us a good look at Bowden in the lead as part of the horror ensemble.

General Education

On paper, General Education looks like a passable summer teen comedy. Written by newcomers Elliot Feld, Jaz Kalkat and Tom Morris, and directed by Morris, the film seemingly has the right ingredients: A good-looking, but slightly geeky high school hero (Chris Sheffield); an overbearing dad (Larry Miller); clueless mom (Janeane Garofalo); eccentric little sister (Mckaley Miller) and a passel of weird loser friends (Skylan Brooks, Harvey Guillen, Sean Przano and Seth Cassell). Oh, and lest we forget, there’s a beautiful girl (Maiara Walsh) and a bully (Tom Maden) thrown in for good measure, too....

This week's new films

Magic Trip (15)

(Alison Ellwood, Alex Gibney, 2011, Us) 107 mins

Ken Kesey and his Merry Pranksters' LSD-fuelled 1964 road trip is one of those seminal cultural moments you can't believe really happened, at least not like it did in The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test. But here it is, chaotically shot and narrated by the culprits themselves and painstakingly reassembled. That makes for a certain lack of perspective, and watching others having a great time isn't necessarily the same as having one, but the contrast between these turned-on teens and square 60s America is often hilarious.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 (12A)

(Bill Condon, 2011, Us) Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner. 117 mins

At last, some consummation! Bella and Edward's wedding comes a few movies too late for neutral observers, but the supernatural saga is in no danger of coming to an abrupt end, thanks to the franchise's determination to vampirically milk fans dry.
