‘American Backwoods: Slew Hampshire’ Review

Stars: Dayo Okeniyi, Shawn Thomas, Tyler Rice, Jeremy Isabella, Flood Reed, Claire Dodin, Matt Hish, Mike Apple, Brian Allen, John Joyce, Michael Todd Schneider, Paul J Hennigan, Gaya Malakian, Stephen O’Neil Martin, Chip Kratzinger | Written and Directed by Flood Reed

‘Based on a true story’? Check. Rural American setting packed full of aggressive Hillbillies and weirdos? Check. Not really based on a true story? Check. One of the most annoying American teenagers ever to inhabit a horror film this side of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre’s Franklin? Check and check, in spades. Said teenage irritation and his three relatively bland friends get into trouble seeking a fabled strip club (really) out in rural America.

What sets American Backwoods: Slew Hampshire apart from its fellow Deliverance and Texas Chain Saw Massacre imitators is its devotion to sleaze and annoyance. Both, for the most part, being intentional. Bevvies of big

Wicked Trailer for Slew Hampshire

Some guys just know how to put together a trailer. The creators of the upcoming film Slew Hampshire definitely know what they're doing. Writer/director Flood Reed brings us a horrific vision of backwoods violence set to some kick-ass background music. In this 90-second trailer you get buckets of blood and the biggest collection of psycho eyes you'll ever see in such a short span of time!

Starring Dayo Okeniyi, Claire Dodin, Tyler Rice, Matt Hish, Shawn Thomas, Brian Allen and (in my opinion) one of the scariest guys in the horror business, Michael Todd Schneider of August Underground's Mordum fame. I'm sure the rest of the cast is brilliant as the trailer is very entertaining, but Schneider gives me chills. If you listen closely to the background song, you'll hear a line mentioning something about "…backwoods mutherfuckery…" That seems to pretty much sum things up.

"We're Alive" Brings a Zombie Pandemic in Podcast Form to La

"We're Alive" is a horror themed webseries from directors Kc Wayland and Shane Salk. This series has been running since at least 2010 and likely longer. Currently, this zombie survival showing is into its second season and this reviewer wanted to pass along a few notes on this thrilling fantasy adventure.

The first two chapters break down a pandemic in a zombiefying Los Angeles, with soldiers Michael (Jim Gleason), Angel (Shane Salk), and Saul (Nate Geez) searching for a safe place to bunk. Instead, they find more survivors and the early chapters deal with these characters settling into a large apartment building, called the Tower.

The action is tense early in Chapter 1 and the characterizations develop more in the second chapter. So far, this series has hooked this zombie follower and if you enjoy this genre, head over to "We're Alive" for a free-to-use podcast. The link details are below, along

A 2084 Exclusive Look at the Future

The last word on 2084 came earlier this month with a feature length trailer and now this picture, from directors Maurice Kelly and George Blumetti, has a second alternate trailer inside. This second trailer states that "all hope is lost," but that does not mean the future cannot be exciting or thrilling. This is what 2084 offers an imaginative take on a future where a viral pandemic has forced the population inside, for over twenty years! Trying circumstances will be acted out by Jaimi Page, Adam Gray-Hayward, Billy West and others. So, have a look at this latest trailer which is an exclusive for 28Dla, courtesy of producer Carlos Solis.

A recap of the synopsis:

Exclusive new trailer for 2084 delves into virus origins

We've just been handed an all new HD trailer for post-apocalyptic thriller 2084 and I must say this little indie is looking better and better. I love the photography and sets and the acting is top notch.

Synopsis:

Not much left since the world died. That's what they called it the day the virus took over and people went inside, never to leave their homes again. Soon after that, the last of the food was gone, the last drop of gas was used up, the government collapsed. Chaos... on a global scale.
