Did You Know?


The last screen appearance for Dave Brockie, the singer of the metal band GWAR. Brockie was a regular on Adam Green's TV show Holliston (2012), as well as a close friend. There was discussion of cutting Brockie's scene (in which he prophetically declared, "I have been a monster, I will always be a monster and after I'm dead, I will be a dead monster!") but it was ultimately decided that it would be retained since it was the last footage of Brockie that was ever shot.

Adam Green Is A very Talented Actor AND Director.
18 June 2015 | by Vivekmaru45See all my reviews

Any easy 7/10. A worthwhile view into the life of a horror film director. In the film, Green pays homage to horror greats, the likes of Mick Garris(The Stand, Masters Of Horror), Tom Holland(Child's Play), Don Coscarelli(Phantasm) and Stanley Lloyd Kaufman(The Toxic Avenger). Also we have Kane Hodder who has played a lot of monster type roles for example he played Jason Vorhees in Friday the 13th Part VII, Jason X and Metalbeast in Project: Metalbeast and lastly Victor Crowley in the Hatchet films.

Here Adam Green makes a documentary type film about a man who says he has determined the whereabouts of an underground society of monsters or mutants. The man William Dekker an retired private investigator, says he discovered the monsters accidentally, and from thereon, he developed a relationship or understanding between them. These monsters have spared Dekker's life under the condition that he reveals his secret to no one.

He breaks this cardinal rule by telling Adam Green, who wants to capture one of these amazing creatures on film for the whole world to see. So one day, he and Dekker go by car to scout one of the locations where the creatures are to be seen. On the first occasion, Dekker spots a creature and immediately tells Green to look in that particular direction. However Green sees nothing. Later on, on a second attempt, they really capture a creature on film.

He shows the footage to Kane Hodder. Hodder is skeptical an professes that it is just a normal person wearing special make-up. However Green does not agree, and wishes to further explore the creatures domain.

Watch the film to find out what happens next! More Monster Films: Brain Damage 1988, Frankenhooker 1990, The Basket Case Trilogy(1982-1990-1991), The Relic 1997, Bad Moon 1996, Silver Bullet 1985, Graveyard Shift 1990, The Thing 1982, Shadowzone 1990, From Beyond 1986, Fright Night 1985, The Re-Animator Trilogy(1985-1989-2003), The Unamable Duology 1988-1992, Pumpkinhead Quadrilogy, Alien Quadrilogy, Predator 1-2, The Fly(original and remakes), Nightbreed, Nightflyers, Hellraiser Quadrilogy, Phantasm Quadrilogy, A Nightmare On Elm Street(1-6), Friday The 13th(1-10), Halloween(1-5). There are many more out there, I can't name them all...

Phew! Thank you for reading this review, may you live long and prosper. And good luck to you Adam Green, may you continue to make great films for us.
