You Will Not Connect with Antisocial 2: A Film Review

2 September 2015 3:39 PM, PDT

Director: Cody Calahan. Writers: Cody Calahan, Chad Archibald, Jeff Maher. Cast: Michelle Mylett, Josette Halpert, Stephen Bogaert. Cody Calahan and Chad Archibald of Black Fawn Films reunite in the sequel to 2013's Antisocial. This viewer is not a fan of the first film, so we already got off on the wrong foot but, having enjoyed Black Fawn's recent release, Bite, there was still hope for redemption. Unfortunately, even with some great atmospheric shots and some decent gore, Antisocial 2, much like the first, is simply uninteresting. While the message that social media turns people into zombies has potential, the concept is overthought and under-executed thus rendering it powerless. Michelle Mylett as Sam in Antisocial's final scene.The plot in the second film is driven by an update being installed on the social media site, The Social Redroom. The update will supposedly force everyone to become users—to connect. Suffice it to say, »

Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf-Woman? A Film Review

2 September 2015 3:39 PM, PDT

*full disclosure: an online screener of this film was provided by Radius TWC. Director: Jonas Alexander Arnby. Writers: Rasmus Birch, Christoffer Boe, Jonas Alexander Arnby. Cast: Sonia Suhl, Lars Mikkelsen, Sonya Richter. When Animals Dream is the first feature-length film from Danish director, Jonas Alexander Arnby. This artsy body horror/drama premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2014, receiving well-deserved critical acclaim. In the film, sixteen-year-old Marie struggles to form an identity in a small coastal town. To make matters worse, she discovers that she's not like other females, or other humans. Although female coming of age stories are fairly common in horror movies (2000's Ginger Snaps being one of the better ones), there is something unique about this picture. Something subtle. Without copious amounts of violence and gore, this picture slowly tightens its grip, pulling the viewer in. This is not a start to finish action-packed edge of your seat film, »

Z for Zachariah and the Fall of Man: A Film Review

2 September 2015 3:37 PM, PDT

Director: Craig Zobel. Writers: Nissar Modi and Robert C. O'Brien. Cast: Margot Robbie, Chris Pine and Chiwetel Ejiofor. Z for Zachariah is a novel adaptation. The film takes place in a post-apocalyptic Christian paradise, in which a young religious woman struggles with loneliness. Loneliness is the least of her problems when two men enter her life. Here, the film's Christian themes become predominant and an Adam an Eve storyline is brought into the play. The Devil wins again and one character is tempted into murder, while another is tempted by lust. This dramatic film offers a sombre tone and very strong performances. Z for Zachariah is a compelling film and recommended to fans of the genre. The film begins with Ann (Margot Robbie). Lilith, Eve or Ann is busy farming and looking after herself, in a remote valley. An undefined catastrophic nuclear event has irradiated everything outside of this idyllic »

This Wasteland is a Waste of Time: A Film Review

1 September 2015 11:27 PM, PDT

Director/writer: Francois Simard, Anouk Whissell and Yoann-Karl Whissell. Cast: Munro Chambers, Laurence Leboeuf, Aaron Jeffrey and Michael Ironside. Turbo Kid is an action-packed gory retro-future adventure from Canada-New Zealand directing team Rkss (Francois Simard, Anouk Whissell and Yoann-Karl Whissell). Don't let the lively description fool you, though; this film tries to do way too much and, in doing so, accomplishes very little. Set in the year 1997, the film claims that “this is the future.” While the opening sequence includes high energy '80s music, throwing back to 1986's bicycle-motocross movie, Rad, and fun video game-inspired credits, once the story lifts off, the entertainment value comes crashing down. As a tribute to past '80s flicks, Turbo Kid does too much looking back when the story needed to be pushed forward. Aside from the campy gore, nifty backdrop and a couple strong supporting actors, the film had this viewer wanting »

The film has recently won several awards, including "Best Film" and "Best Kill," at Montreal's Horrorfest. The film's trailer is hosted below and indie horror fans are encouraged to take a look. The clip shows a roaming ambulance and an investigating detective. The detective is exploring a series of disappearances. But, two scrapyard workers know nothing. However, they are working together to seek revenge on careless teen drivers. Their revenge involves ripped and torn flesh. It is strange to see the name Alan Smithee as director.
