‘Deadly Target’ DVD Review

Stars: Michael Jai White, Steve Austin, Max Ryan, Jon Osbeck, Allen Yates, Ashleigh Barnett, Matthew Bentley, Bobby Burns, Joe Fidler, John W. Lawson | Written by Kevin Carraway, Lawrence Sara | Directed by Kevin Carraway

Dear god, can’t someone give Michael Jai White a break? The star of the underrated Spawn, the fantastic blaxploitation spoof Black Dynamite, and the man behind supervillain Bronze Tiger in season 2 of Arrow, has been toiling away in Dtv action movie purgatory for some time now. For every decent action movie he makes – like Never Back Down 2 and Undisputed 2; he also has to appear in ill-judged films like Falcon Rising and this, Deadly Target.

Originally titled Chain of Command (no doubt renamed to stop any confusion with the hundred or so other movies with that moniker), Deadly Target sees White star as Special Operative James Webster who returns home after a tour of duty, only to

In a Nutshell: Way Of The Wicked

"When the sons of the fallen came upon the daughters of men they bore the way of the wicked." An opening gambit that reads infinitely more interesting than the tagline for Kevin Carraway's latest low-budget horror movie. 'Evil Never Dies', anyone? Is that a fact? Well, as the filmmakers so eloquently put it, evil never dies but film careers do. Remember when Christian Slater was the epitome of cool? Now he's playing heroic priests in inexplicably dull horror movies. Remember when Vinnie Jones had the world at his feet? Ok, so that's a bit of a stretch, but Vinnie Jones stars alongside Slater in the straight-to-dvd feature that riffs on The Omen and Carrie. Here's a twist for you. Christian Slater plays a holier than thou priest and Vinnie Jones plays the part of a doting father. He's still a cop of course but the role of

Sometimes you see actors turn up in movies and you just know what to expect. I find though that to be fair to the film I look to be pleasantly surprised, and sometimes I even am…but this tends to be rare. Way of the Wicked stars Christian Slater and Vinnie Jones and for fans of bad movies I don’t really need to say much more than that do I?

When Robbie (Jake Croker) returns to the town where he was once implicated in the death of a classmate it’s not long before another student dies. Detective John Elliot (Vinnie Jones) begins to suspect Robbie as being to blame, especially when

Director Kevin Carraway Talks Way of the Wicked

In the new supernatural horror movie Way of the Wicked, Christian Slater lives up to his first name and plays a man of God. But he’s not without his flaws. As director Kevin Carraway told us, “It was definitely different for me to see Christian play that kind of dark person. He is such a fantastic actor that I knew he would bring that character to life."

" Even on set, watching some of the decisions he made, he is such a professional. I can totally understand why he has had such longevity in this business and I would love to work with him again in the future.”

Carraway said there was no ego, not even with the press mobbing him the moment he stepped onto set. “When he first showed up, reporters wanted to interview Christian. The energy on the set was amazing. He would go around and speak with everyone.

DVD Review: Seven Below

DVD Review: Seven Below
Title: 7 Below Directed by: Kevin Carraway Starring: Val Kilmer, Ving Rhames and Luke Goss Running time: 90/minutes, Rated R A group of strangers get stuck in a small town during a storm, and are lured to a house where a family was murdered by a young boy over 100 years ago. They discover they’re all apart of a time loop where the murders are constantly repeating. I am a big Val Kilmer fan and I was beyond disappointed in this crappy little forgettable film. The writing was terrible, the score was horrible and the acting was a cruel joke. He can’t be hurting for work, and if he is, [ Read More ]

Ving Rhames Wants Your Soul in Seven Below Trailer

One of the side effects of doing this thing they call movie blogging is that I hear about pretty much every film that goes into production. A lot of times these films have nifty premises that sticks in my mind. Take the premise for “Seven Below” from director Kevin Carraway, which goes something like this: The story centers on a group of strangers trapped in a time warp house where a terrible event transpired exactly 100 years prior. Not bad, right? Sounds like something right up my alley. The last time we reported on the film was last year, when it was casting. Haven’t heard a single thing about it since, which basically means whoever produced it didn’t feel it was worth promoting. But after a quick tour of YouTube, I discovered a trailer, and now, an Amazon pre-order page that has the film scheduled for an April 17, 2012 release
