flyinglotus

With the ability to travel in time, a lonely girl finds love and comfort by connecting with her past self. Eventually faced with rejection she struggles with her identity and gender, and as time folds onto itself only one of them can remain.

Written and directed by Eddia Alcazar.

Starring Charles Baker and Jesse Sullivan.

Filmed in the United States.

8 minutes and 57 seconds.

FuckkkYouu is as a strange a short film as you’re likely to see. I can not with any honesty say that I understood any of it; I can with all honesty say that I was amazed in a disturbing way and disturbed in an amazing way the entire time I was watching. By the way, Creature XXY is portrayed by Charles Baker; he’s the guy who played Skinny Pete on AMC’s Breaking Bad. Enjoy the film.

 

FRIDAY NIGHT AT THE TRAILER PARK: SCARE CAMPAIGN

Synopsis: Popular prank TV show, Scare Campaign, has been entertaining audiences for the last five years with its mix of old school scares and hidden camera fun. But as we enter a new age of online TV the producers find themselves up against a new hard edged web series which makes their show look decidedly quaint. It’s time to up the ante, but will the team go too far this time, and are they about to prank the wrong guy?

This one comes to us from the Cairnes brothers, Cameron and Colin, the same two guys who gave us 100 Bloody Acres in 2012. That one was a nifty and fun little Aussie horror flick and Scare Campaign looks like it might just follow it up quite well.

The Cairnes brothes share a writing and directing credit and Scare Campaign stars Meegan Warner, Ian Meadows, Olivia DeJonge, Josh Quong Tart, Patrick Harvey, Cassandra Magrath, Steve Mouzakis, John Brumpton, Jason Geary, Sigrid Thornton, and Kaiting Yap. I don’t have much on a United States release date but I do know that it’s set for Monster Fest on November 26 in the Land Down Under aka Australia. Check them out at their official Facebook page for more details.

Here’s the trailer and a poster. Enjoy.

SHORT FILM SATURDAY: DOG FOOD (2014)

Dog-Food-Poster

When a butcher loses his dog, his life starts to unravel.

Written and directed by Brian Crano.

Starring Amanda Seyfried, Cory Michael Smith and David Craig.

Filmed in the United States.

18 minutes and 17 seconds.

Winner Best Horror/Suspense film at the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con International Film Festival.

I have three dogs; Clarice, a terrier and named for The Silence of the Lambs character; Molly, a pug whose superpower is excessive napping; and Bella, a German shepherd who for some odd reason I have given the human voice of Don Knotts. I love all of them but if I had to choose a favorite it would be Clarice by a long shot. She has enough energy, spunk and above all personality for 50 dogs and will carry on long conversations with you if you get her started. If anything bad were to happen to her I would be heartbroken. If anyone were to harm her I would be very angry and you wouldn’t like me when I’m angry. I guess that’s why I have a great deal of sympathy for Declan (Cory Michael Smith aka Edward Nygma on TV’s Gotham) in this week’s Short Film Saturday installment Dog Food. Of course to say much more would be to give away the film before you even see it. Let’s just say there’s a twist and then there’s a twist and leave it at that. Enjoy.

FRIDAY NIGHT AT THE TRAILER PARK: CABIN FEVER

SynopsisA flesh-eating virus makes a meal of 5 teens on spring break in a remote wood cabin in this update of Eli Roth’s classic gorefest, with all-new characters and all-new kills.

I’m sure that by now a lot of you have already seen the trailer for the Cabin Fever remake. I’ve seen it on at least two blogs that I know a lot of you also follow. To make a long story short I’m feeling a little lazy and plus I have to take my wife to an appointment and therefore don’t have a lot of time to dedicate to this week’s post.

Directed by Travis Zariwny and written by Randy Pearlstein from an original screenplay by Eli Roth, Cabin Fever will star Gage Golightly, Matthew Daddario, Samuel Davis, Dustin Ingram, and Nadine Crocker. The film is set for limited release in the United States beginning February 12, 2016. Check out the trailer and poster below.
