blackhole

Written and directed by Phil Sansom and Olly Williams.

Starring Napoleon Ryan.

Filmed in the United Kingdom.

I’ve been thinking about posting this short film for quite some time now. Without giving away the ending, which may become obvious to you in the first place, I have one question: Do you feel sorry for the guy? Enjoy.

 

FRIDAY NIGHT AT THE TRAILER PARK: PHANTASM: RAVAGER

Synopsis:  For 37 years, audiences have followed small town friends Reggie, Mike, and Jody in their quest to stop the evil, dimension-hopping schemes of The Tall Man (Angus Scrimm in his final performance) and his armada of killer Sentinel Spheres. Now, Don Coscarelli’s acclaimed horror/sci-fi Phantasm franchise comes to a close in a truly epic finale, a multi-dimensional battle across multiple timelines, alien planets, and altered realities, where no less than the fate of Earth is on the line.

Are you all as stoked as I am for this one? We’ve waited 17 years for a new Phantasm film (the last film was Phantasm: Oblivion in 1998) so let’s hope that writer-director David Hartman and writer Don Coscarelli come through and deliver to us a Phantasm finale that kicks ass, takes down names and shoves big metal balls with sharp pointy objects down our collective throats. Angus Scrimm aka “The Tall Man” makes his final appearance alongside Reggie Bannister and A. Michael Baldwin. Look for Phantasm: Ravager in theaters and digital HD October 7th. Check out the official Facebook page and check out the trailer and poster↓.

A-Z TRIVIA WEDNESDAY: CARRIE (2013)

Originally the film was slated to begin with a scene from the book, in which a young Carrie wandered into the yard next door and found her teenage neighbor sunbathing. Margaret flies out of their home in a rage and scoops up Carrie, who throws a tantrum and summons a rain of stones. This prologue was also shot for Carrie (1976) and wound up being deleted from both versions.

ALT-POSTR-MONDAY FOR SEPTEMBER 19, 2016

I can’t think of anything to say and so I will just say enjoy.

Story by Matt Hawksworth and David Vendrell.

Written by David Vendrell.

Starring Ken Ashton and Marie Oldenbourg and with the voices of Jodi Carol Harrison, David Caprita, John F. Thomas, Heston Horwin, Phil Miller and Chase Cargill.

Filmed in the United States.

Twelve minutes and twelve seconds.

Teddy Bears are for Lovers was the first film I watched when I set out to choose a film for this week’s short film. It was also the last film I watched as after viewing it I had no doubt that it would be the film to kick off the second year of Short Film Saturday. I hope you like it as much as I did because honestly speaking I loved every minute of it. Enjoy.

 

FRIDAY NIGHT AT THE TRAILER PARK: NIGHT OF THE WITCH

Synopsis: It’s 1989 and a group of high school party teens head out to the deep country in a van for a “last blast” senior bonfire. Against better judgement they pick up a seductively charming hitchhiker named Maddy Martha who unbeknownst to them is an evil bloodthirsty witch out for fresh young victims. As the gang fades into an eve of booze, drugs and sex, the sadistic intentions of the witch are revealed turning their good times into a horrific night of cat and mouse. One by one they are hunted and slain until the remaining few must confront Maddy Martha if they ever want to see 1990. Night of the Witch is a good ole’ 80’s throwback slasher with plenty of blood, boobs, bad lines and bad hair!

I figure the best way to present the trailer for the yet to be made Night of the Witch is to do just that: present the trailer and the poster and let you make up your own mind. Enjoy it ↓ and I’ll have more to say after the poster.

A-Z TRIVIA WEDNESDAY: CARRIE (1976)

carrie_036pyxurz

When Sissy Spacek was preparing for her character, she isolated herself from the rest of the ensemble, decorated her dressing room with heavy religious iconography and studied Gustav Doré’s illustrated Bible. She studied “the body language of people being stoned for their sins,” starting or ending every scene in one of those positions.
