‘Letterkenny’ Review: Wonderfully Weird Canadian Comedy Comes to Hulu

The dialogue on Letterkenny seems impenetrable the first time you watch it, maybe even the second or third. The Canadian comedy, which Hulu recently added to its library, takes place in a small town in rural Ontario populated by “hicks, skids, hockey players and Christians,” and each group has its own colorful vernacular. The hicks – sibling farmers Wayne (creator/star Jared Keeso) and Katy (Michelle Mylett) and their friends Daryl (Nathan Dales) and Squirrely Dan (K. Trevor Wilson) – have been known to talk about “hooverin’ schneef” (snorting cocaine), and when

How ‘El Camino Christmas’ Is a Great Alternative to Your Standard Holiday Films

How ‘El Camino Christmas’ Is a Great Alternative to Your Standard Holiday Films
Netflix’s latest offering is a true nightmare before Christmas — and that’s a good thing. “El Camino Christmas,” available to stream on Friday, Dec. 8, tells the story of a drifter (played by “Fifty Shades of Grey”‘s Luke Grimes) whose arrival in a sleepy California town sets off a chain of chaotic events, culminating in a fatal hostage situation at a liquor store. As the madness unfolds, countless lives — including those of a single mother (played by Letterkenny’s Michelle Mylett) and her young, introverted son — are changed forever.

In case it wasn’t already clear, this isn’t your typical comedy — and it’s definitely not your typical Christmas movie. The unconventional story, which also stars Dax Shepard and Vincent D’Onofrio as a pair of bumbling cops with absolutely no business wielding pistols, takes pride in bucking conventions at every turn, of which there are many.

Having just started its festival run, Matthew Currie Holmes’ directorial debut, Buckout Road, just won its first film festival award: Best Thriller Feature Film at the Hot Springs Horror Film Festival; and to celebrate the first trailer for the film has been released!

Buckout Road might be known as the most haunted road in New York State, but nobody really believed it… until now. A college class project on modern mythology turns deadly when a trio of students discovers a series of horrific urban legends surrounding Buckout Road may actually be true. The deeper they dig into the road’s dark, mysterious history, the more dangerous their quest becomes. From witches burning at the stake, to backwoods albino killers, to a modern, unstoppable stalker, writer/director and horror-film aficionado Matthew Currie Holmes leaves no genre unexploited in his loving throwback to late-80’s midnight movies.

‘The Drownsman’ DVD Review

Stars: Michelle Mylett, Caroline Korycki, Gemma Bird Matheson, Sydney Kondruss, Clare Bastable, Ry Barrett, JoAnn Nordstrom | Written by Chad Archibald, Cody Calahan | Directed by Chad Archibald

Chad Archibald, producer of Antisocial (a personal fave) turns his hand to directing with a film which is a bold attempt to create an all-new horror villain in The Drownsman. And hey, what’s not to like about another horror film starring the wonderful Michelle Mylett?

This time round Mylett plays Madison who, after almost drowning in a lake, develops debilitating hydrophobia and with good reason. It’s not just water the frightens Madison, it’s the supernatural entity that continually haunts her through it, a rancid ghostly entity trying to pull her into his dark, wet world. Her friends, worried for her sanity, decide to stage an intervention – with dire consequences. Their attempts to help their friend only unleash the drownsman’s rage

Grimmfest 2015: ‘Antisocial 2′ Review

Stars: Michelle Mylett, Stephen Bogaert, Josette Halpert, Samuel Faraci, Jake Michaels, Kassandra Santos, Kristina Nicoll | Written by Chad Archibald, Cody Calahan, Jeff Maher | Directed by Cody Calahan

Years after having her newborn child stolen from her, Sam searches a world infested with infected users from the Social Redroom website. After befriending a young girl named Bean, Sam is captured and locked in a facility dedicated to finding a cure for the Redroom virus. Trapped and tortured, Sam tries to escape the facility before an impending update on the Redroom site hits 100% and unleashed its final phase of attack…

Despite the open(ish) ending of the first Antisocial, when this sequel was announced I did wonder in just what direction Chad Archibald, Cody Calahan and the Black Fawn Films crew would take the film. After all, the original film was a one location, claustrophic horror flick that – I thought – had a finite story.

You Will Not Connect with Antisocial 2: A Film Review

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,

Fantasia 2015: Antisocial 2 is a Mostly Unnecessary Sequel

When is a sequel unnecessary? Most of the time, actually, and unfortunately Antisocial 2 happens to be one of those times. What starts out as a promising post-apocalyptic film about the first film’s survivor, Sam (Michelle Mylett), struggling to avoid "the connected" – those who were irreversibly infected by the Social Redroom’s computer virus from the first film – quickly turns into a somewhat uneventful treatise on the so-called evils of technology and the youth of today, who somehow seem to be the only ones who know how to use a computer and navigate social media adequately.

Antisocial 2 picks up shortly after the events of the first film, with Sam experiencing labor pains while running from some of the infected. She’s saved by a seemingly [Continued ...]

Fantasia 2015: Antisocial 2 To Premiere At Festival, Check Out The New Trailer

Antisocial 2, the sequel to the Canadian indie horror, will have its World Premiere at Fantasia on July 30th. Director Cody Calahan and writing partner Chad Archibald return with the next chapter in Sam's fight against the Redroom Virus. Antisocial cinematographer Jeff Maher also adds a writing credit to this sequel along with his help behind the camera once again. Michelle Mylett reprises her role as our heroine Sam. It has been several years since the events of the first film, and the Redroom Virus has won. Spawned from a mysterious social-networking website, it has infected most of the populace, turning them into mindless killers; the few survivors are divided between the uninfected and those who have been freed of the virus' influence via impromptu brain surgery....

Fantasia 2015: Apocalypse Via Social Media Virus in Antisocial 2 [Trailer]

Writer/director Cody Calahan first appeared on our radar a couple of years ago with Antisocial (trailer), a horror movie focused on a group of college students at a house party who find themselves at the centre of a virus which is transmitted via social media and which turns the afflicted into raging psychopaths.

I rather enjoyed the movie which felt timely with the rise in popularity of social media but beyond that, it featured some really creepy moments and introduced Michelle Mylett to the world. Now Calahan and producing and writing partner Chad Archibald are back with Antisocial 2.

The sequel unfolds years after the collapse of the world as we know it [Continued ...]
