Hereos fight to survive in All Superheroes Must Die
With the success of super heroes in theaters it comes as no surprise that filmmakers are starting to churn out their own variations on the genre. The biggest issue is that without the recognition, most of these films just can't capture and audience. Filmmaker Jason Trost, who delivered the insanely fun The FP has thrown his own vision into the super hero genre with All Superheroes Must Die. With The FP showed he could think outside the box and deliver something different that still works, but can he score the same with his superhero vision?
All Super Heroes Must Die follows four super heroes who find themselves abducted by their Arch Nemesis and forced to compete in a series of challenges to save kidnapped innocent civilians. This movie not only works it takes the genre in a whole new direction. Imagine super heroes and throw them into the world of SAW and you have this film. The film is dark and gritty and plays up the torment as opposed to the super heroics giving it more of a punch than you would have thought. The costumes feel more like what real people would have put together if they became costumed heroes, all without coming across to silly. The inner dilemmas of the characters add to the already insane struggles they have to deal with causing their tasks to be that much harder to complete. The performances are pretty good for the most part, with only a few moments here and there that are a bit off. James Remar as the mastermind behind the torment eats of the screen playing this character way over the top, yet perfectly fits this world and his character.
This is one of the better attempts at this genre thinking outside the box to create a fun unique film. The mix of the genres really adds to the over concept to create a must see for anyone a fan of either genre. Horror fans, be on the lookout for Chromeskull himself Nick Principe in a villainous role as a part of a memorable fight scene. Trost is really doing a great job with these films and will no doubt be an up and coming force to be reckoned with and can't wait to see what he delivers next.
