Tremors 5: Bloodlines Review

Starring: Michael Gross, Jamie Kennedy, Natalie Becker, Emmanuel Castis, Brandon, Auret, Daniel Janks, Pearl Thusl

Director: Don Michael Paul

Burt and his newly acquired sidekick (whether he likes it or not) Travis head to South Africa to deal with the Graboid problem. However, these Graboids attack from both above and below, which makes  them much more deadlier then ever.

I wasn't sure that I wanted another Tremors movie as I loved the first one and never saw the rest. What changed my mind? The addition of Jamie Kennedy. I have been a fan of his since the Scream movies, so I was excited to see how he can handle taking on these Graboids and let me say that he was fucking awesome. Alongside with Michael Gross, this team is a force to be reckoned with. There is one scene that will have you cracking up that involves Burt and a cage. That's all I'm going to say.

The Graboids this time around are bigger and badder then ever, as they can hunt not only below, but also above, which is a much scarier thought. But I have to say that for a PG-13 flick, there's quite a bit of blood, which is always a plus.

Tremors 5: Bloodlines is a fun, wild ride and I highly recommend this one to all Tremors fans.

Torn Apart Eaten Alive - Script Review

Reviewed By: Mitch Penman

I have been given the opportunity by Kristy to read the anthology Torn Apart Eaten Alive. This is the first time I have read the script in a whole. So it was a little different as she had let me read it piece by piece as she wrote it. Although I can't give much away, I can tell you this: this will be a must see movie if it was ever made.

It starts out with a great intro leading with four people taking a family hostage. This leads us into 3 stories. The first story Theater of Flesh is full of lesbianism cannibalism and sadism. All the makings of a wonderful movie.

 Before the second story continues. The intro scene continues and leads us into our second story, Metal Hunger. This is about 4 bandmembers seeking to get the ultimate rush involving murder, bloodlust, and all out horror. As our second story ends, our interest story continues getting more intense.

Finally leading us into our third story, The Cabin. This is about four friends who head up to the cabin for a weekend thinking they are going to have a good time. But a good time is the last thing they have. Finally, The climax of the intro story which pieced all 3 short stories together.

This is a wonderful script and flows together very well. Kristy has put a lot of time and effort into this script. I am very excited for everyone to finally have the chance to read this as soon she gets it together and posts it. U guys are gonna LUV IT. I'm sure of it.

Lost After Dark Review

Starring: Sarah Fisher, Mark Wiebe, Jesse Camacho, Kendra Leigh Timmins, David Lipper, Robert Patrck, Elise Gatien, Justin Kelly

Director: Ian Kessner

A group of high school students sneaks away from their school dance to travel out to a cabin in the woods for some fun, but when their ride gets broken down, they find themselves at the home of a known cannibal.

I have been so disappointed with the amount of slashers that gets made these days. They are either poorly made or just plain boring, but Lost After Dark was a really nice surprise.

First of all, it's set in 1984 and watching a retro-style horror movie is always fun because I am obsessed with horror movies from the 80's and it brings back great memories from that time in my life. And with this being a cannibalistic slasher, it made it much better.

The acting was actually better then I thought it would be. I didn't know most of these actors, except for Sarah Fisher, from Degrassi and Robert Patrick, but everyone did an amazing job. The only thing that bothers me is when they have to include animals in the mix because you know what's going to happen to them.

The death scenes were great, brutal and gory. Some of the death scenes were quite surprising too. I really hope they make a sequel, this needs one.

Finally, Lost After Dark is a fun, gory retro-style slasher that you need to check out. I highly recommend it.
