Lake Fear 3 – USA, 2018

‘It’s waiting…’

Lake Fear 3 – aka Lake Fear: Origin of Evil – is a 2018 American supernatural comedic horror feature film directed by Michael Crum (Fall of Grace; Anna; Allegiance of PowersLake Fear) from a screenplay by Gerald Crum. The MGI Films production stars KateLynn E. Newberry, Shanon Snedden, Joshua Winch and Devi Khajishvili.

Revel (Shanon Snedden) is looking for her missing sister Jordan with her best friend Chloe (KateLynn E. Newberry). A misdirected weekend adventure that Jordan took a few years ago has led to her disappearance after she encountered an evil entity in a cabin in the woods. Revel and Chloe enlist the help of Vincent (Devi Khajishvili), a failed paranormal TV series host, with the hopes of his ‘talents’ leading to their success.

Instead, they realise the evil unleashed a few years ago has become stronger and escaped the bounds of its original cabin. They also encounter Remington (Joshua Winch) the original finder and fighter of the evil who gives them some very unwanted and dire news. Will this group of mismatched personalities win the fight or suffer the unknown fate as many others before?

Reviews:

Lake Fear 3: Origin of Evil has a sinister atmosphere, truly unexpected turns, and buckets of blood that are all guaranteed to keep you entertained. I should also mention that it’s equal parts action-drama as it is horror […] A tremendous showing of talent, skill and understanding of ones story and product. Let this one get under your skin…” Horror Society

“While Lake Fear 3 isn’t the best indie horror film we have seen, it does show much improvement over the original that it is a sequel to. It was nice to see Joshua Winch reprise his role as Remington, and he was great in this. The writing and some of the shots were questionable from time-to-time, but Lake Fear 3 is a fun, gory, and imaginative effort…” Midnight Horror Show

Lake Fear 3 is gimcrack, kitschy and cheeky. Its humorous and entertaining if you are willing to sacrifice certain standards that you have come to expect from bigger names and budgets…”  Nevermore Horror

Gila! – USA, 2012

393505_380288605378449_849977430_n

Gila! is a 2012 science fiction horror feature film directed by Jim Wynorski (Chopping Mall; Sorceress; Transylvania Twist;  Piranhaconda; et al) from a screenplay by William Dever, Steve Mitchell, Jim Nielsen and Paul Sinor. It is a remake of The Giant Gila Monster (1959) and a pastiche of ’50s monster movies in general.

Gila_Still_2

The movie stars Bruce Munson, Adrienne Atkins, Brian Patrick McCulley and Brian Gross. Terence Knox and Kelli Maroney have cameo roles.

Plot:

A young couple are parked in a bleak, rural locale when a giant gila monster attacks the car, sending them running for their lives. Chase Winstead (Gross) , a young mechanic and hot rod racer and his girl Lisa (Voges), meet up with Chase’s former nemesis, Waco Bob (Janzen) and his sidekick Carla (De Rosa).

Prompted by calls from Mayor Wheeler (Pauwels), the local Sheriff (Knox) enlists the help of Chase, locates the crashed car in the ravine and finds evidence of the giant lizard. They attempt to destroy the creature, but that only makes it more vicious…

Reviews:

“Looking more cheaply made than your average Syfy channel movie, Gila! is undemanding and fairly entertaining with an amusing CGI creature (designed by Killer Klowns from Outer Space’s Charles Chiodo) and a cast imitating the cheesy earnestness of small town characters in fifties and sixties monster movies (with nods to old-school sexism, the Communist threat, and polio).” Eric Cotenas, DVD Beaver

“First off, it’s set in the 50s and is a remake of the 1959 The Giant Gila Monster. So that’s cool, a throw-back to the old style, but they only got it half right. Sometimes the extras are dressed in modern clothes and it always seems like a high school set that someone who didn’t even live during the 50s designed. It’s part homage, part spoof, a mix of silly and serious that could have been much more solidified.” Olie Coen, DVD Talk

1-5_still-1024x576

“The monster attack scenes are fun, especially when they involve two drunk Irishmen driving away from the giant lizard in reverse. But they’re spread thin. There are endless scenes involving the characters figuring out what the monster is, making you say, ‘get on with it, already!’ There’s also entirely too much driving around and inane dialogue.” Horror News

” …Wynorski pulled off a very rare feat in making a pic of this ilk entertaining. And to his credit, he’s got a clear, albeit basic vision that he brings to life relatively well. He certainly siphons some memorable performances from a series of relative unknowns, and he keeps a certain degree of synergy coursing through the cast. That’s respectable. Matt Molgaard, Horrorfreak News

15-17_still-1024x576

“The effects work here is sub Syfy quality which is likely why the creature is glimpsed for mere moments. When the film is titled Gila! that’s gonna be an issue now don’t you think? Set in the 1950 the low-budget of this one didn’t exactly make it easy to capture the vintage aesthetic – they give it a good try but the styles sorta come and go from scene to scene.” Ken Kastenhuber, McBastard’s Mausoleum

 

“There are some historical anachronisms that pop up occasionally, but Gila! is a low-budget monster movie playing 1950s dress-up, and it doesn’t aspire to be much more than that. If that doesn’t sound like fun to you, then it probably won’t be.” Christian Bates-Hardy, Rock! Shock! Pop!

1-3_still-1024x576

“The soundtrack is all rock n’ roll music, lots of muscle cars are used that are fun to look at, and again those two female leads make for an entertaining yarn that just about doesn’t outstay it’s welcome […] Gila! does nothing at all original and has really bad special effects but it is feel good and a great B-Movie, the acting is decent also which is a big plus in my book!” Daniel Simmonds, The Rotting Zombie

Plot:

A brougham stops in a dark forest and its cowled driver, Lalbai the sorceress, beckons to the passenger, a newlywed bride. Lalbai leads the bride to the Shaitani Ilaaka (devil’s domain), where she is roused from her spell. The bride is sacrificed at the altar of Shaitan, an ancient and fearsome demon.

Years ago, he roamed free and indiscriminately terrorised the local townsfolk. But he was ultimately defeated, reduced to a formless soul, and held, by a magic charm, to remain imprisoned forever within the Shaitani Ilaaka (“Devil’s Domain”). Lalbai brings him a fresh bride every Amavasya night. Shaitan consumes the blood of this bride, and grows stronger with each offering, until he can break the charm, restore all his evil powers and ravage the world again…

The Mole People – USA, 1956

‘Terrifying… monsters from a lost age!’

The Mole People is a 1956 American science fiction horror feature film directed by Virgil W. Vogel (The Land Unknown) from a screenplay by László Görög (The Spider). It was produced by William Alland (This Island Earth; Tarantula; Creature from the Black Lagoon). The Universal-International movie stars John Agar, Cynthia Patrick, Hugh Beaumont, Nestor Paiva and Alan Napier.

Plot:

Archaeologists Dr. Roger Bentley (John Agar) and Dr. Jud Bellamin (Hugh Beaumont) stumble upon a race of Sumerian albinos living deep under the Earth. They keep mutant humanoid mole men as their slaves to harvest mushrooms, their primary food source, since they can grow without sunlight.

The Sumerian albinos’ ancestors moved into the subterranean after the cataclysmic floods in ancient Mesopotamia. Whenever their population increases, they sacrifice old people to the Eye of Ishtar, which – in reality – is natural light coming from the surface…

In the US, Scream Factory is releasing The Mole People on Blu-ray on February 26, 2019. Special features are in progress and will be announced soon.

 

Reviews:

“Cool idea, inept execution. The unimaginative directorial style works against the movie at every turn. The script asks a lot of our disbelief-suspenders, and doesn’t give them much to work with. The acting is particularly shabby, and though Agar doesn’t seem as bored here as he did in Revenge of the Creature, he still basically sleepwalks through his role.” Scott Ashlin, 1000 Misspent Hours and Counting

“The Mole People isn’t a good movie, but like much sci-fi, the movie does have you exploring theories and ideas which is generally seen as the difference between sci-fi and fantasy. I like that this is blended with a little horror for a nice combo.  The movie is short, sweet and enjoyable for fans of the genre.” JP Roscoe, Basement Rejects

“This pulp adventure tale is made acceptable by the good mole make-up and rubber suits.” John Stanley, Creature Features

“I find it a lot more enjoyable in its use of spectacle; the shots of the underground city are fun to look at, and the hellish sights of the slave fields are particularly impressive. The story is pretty silly, and the idea that sunlight is fatal to these creatures isn’t really convincing…” Dave Sindelar, Fantastic Movie Musings and Ramblings

“A dull script, pedestrian direction and dispirited acting are saved by some inventive set design and make-up.” Alan Frank, The Science Fiction and Fantasy Film Handbook, Batsford, 1982

“Of course it was a B-film, so things are not going to be top-of-the-line, but it was a solid, little science-fiction venture that never failed to entertain. The good guys were good, the bad guys were bad and you could sympathize with the Mole People come the end of the movie.” The Telltale Mind

Cast and characters:

  • John Agar … Dr. Roger Bentley
  • Cynthia Patrick … Adad
  • Hugh Beaumont … Dr. Jud Bellamin
  • Alan Napier … Elinu, the High Priest
  • Nestor Paiva … Prof. Etienne Lafarge

Bloody Nun – USA, 2018

‘Confess your sins’

Bloody Nun is a 2018 American comedy horror feature film written, photographed, edited and directed by Will Collazo Jr. (Theater of Horror; short: DeadYard). The David Sterling production stars Mark C. Fullhardt, Jen Elyse Feldy and Angie Hansen. Shawn C. Phillips has a cameo role in a prologue.

Six paranormal ghost hunters are competing to stay in the most haunted house in New York , with the winner hoping to get one million dollars from the mysterious Mr. Shiva. Using a Ouija Board they conduct a seance. Little do they know they are being set up to be tortured and killed by a ghoulish soul – a bloody nun.

Review:

“Once I realized this was a comedy and not spectacularly bad I grinned quite a bit. Humor is a very subjective thing and this is a bit sillier than I like. However if films like House Shark or Camp Death III in 2D are your thing you should be happy with Bloody Nun.” Jim Morazzini, Voices from the Balcony

Cast and characters:

  • Mark C. Fullhardt … Mr. Shiva – The New York Butcher
  • Jen Elyse Feldy … Jenna G
  • Angie Hansen … Becky E
  • Matt Bruzzio … Logan
  • Jessica Collazo-Thomson … The Nun
  • Cayrem Landt … Rico Vega
  • Carl J Grasso … Hunk
  • Joe Schonbrun … Toby
  • Tim Thomson … Paranormal Tim
  • Shawn C. Phillips … Coolduder

Trivia:

The original title was The Occultist 2: Demons so this was intended as a sequel to The Occultist (2009).

Coulrophobia – UK, 2014

‘All the Fear of the Fair’

Coulrophobia is a 2014 British horror feature film directed by Warren Speed (Zombie Women of Satan) who also stars. The movie  also headlines Pete Bennett, Daniella D’Ville, Roxy Bordeaux, Leela Thompson, Ana Udroiu, Makenna Guyler, Chris Harrison, and Steve Haze.

Plot:

An on-the-run twisted family of circus performers live in the remote Scottish highlands, miles away from civilisation. When a team of female Roller Derby players go camping just a bit too close to them all hell breaks loose…

Reviews:

” …the bizarre costumes and characters ameliorating what would otherwise have been tedious brutality. The victims are a roller derby team but, despite some skating shots topping and tailing the main story, that’s completely irrelevant, sadly negating the ‘Circus freaks vs roller girls’ high concept tag-line. British horror regular Bennett steals the show as a crazed jester.” MJ Simpson, British Horror Revival

…Coulrophobia almost seems like a film Rob Zombie might have made before he lost his way and started churning out trash like 31. Comparisons to House of 1000 Corpses are inevitable, and I absolutely mean that as a compliment. This is one of the most entertaining killer clown films in quite some time.” David Gelmini, Dread Central

” …this British indie film is for those who have a sense of humour and won’t take it too seriously. Those wanting to see gore will get enough to fill their roller skates here. Nudity level is reasonable with plenty of bosoms to make a nun blush.” Peter Hopkins, Horrorscreams Videovault

” …the switch here is that the clowns aren’t the killers, with one exception. It’s the victims that are dressed as clowns before being subjected to abuse. Thankfully, the film doesn’t take itself too seriously. It’s a messed up, over the top nightmare and it knows it. The cast, most of whom have only this film to their name, know it too and have fun with the material.” Jim Morazzini, Voices from the Balcony

Release:

Released on DVD on November 13, 2017 via LunaRock Distribution.

Trivia:

Shot June/July 2014, the film was temporarily retitled All Clowns Must Die during post-production.

Zombie Cheerleading Camp – USA, 2007

Zombie Cheerleading Camp is a 2007 American comedy horror feature film written, produced, edited and directed by Jon Fabris. The JAF Productions movie stars Jamie Anne Brown, Chris White and Nicole Lewis.

Plot:

When teenage boys stumble upon a nearby cheerleading camp, they think their wildest dreams have come true. What could be better than a group of beautiful girls who are bored, stuck in the woods, and ready to party? But something mysterious is changing the cheerleaders, one by one…

Reviews:

“This is the debut directorial from writer / director Jon Fabris who seems to have gotten a lot of his talent and shots from the small town of Raleigh, North Carolina… most of the actors are first timers or come from small resume backgrounds… however the film as a whole works for what it is. Part horror / part comedy Zombie Cheerleader Camp is a fun independent release.” Horror News

“When the highlight of your movie is a ridiculous two-minute fist-fight between a man and a non-animated, stuffed squirrel you may want to rethink your plans. Completionist genre fans with absolutely no other choices  might want to give this a try. Everybody else should steer clear.” More Brains

“I was shocked at how well directed the film proved to be and I’ve noticed this trend in the last few indie horrors I’ve reviewed. Whatever these movies lack in polish and scriptwriting, they make up for in using what they have on hand to entertain. The comedy is acceptable with a few laugh out loud scenes…” Brett H, Oh, the Horror!

  • Jamie Anne Brown … Ashley
  • Chris White … Cotton

President’s Day – USA, 2010

‘Hail to the Chief… or he’ll hack you to pieces!’

President’s Day is a 2010 American dark comedy slasher horror feature film directed by Chris LaMartina (Call Girl of Cthulhu; WNUF Halloween SpecialWitch’s Brew) from a screenplay co-written with Jimmy George. The Midnight Studios production stars Bennie Mack McCoy IV, Lizzy Denning, Nicolette le Faye and Ryan Thomas.

Plot:

It’s campaign season, and the students of Lincoln High are buzzing about who’s going to be class president… But when a psycho dressed as Abraham Lincoln starts hacking up students, the candidates must run… for their lives.

One-by-one, the mighty Lincoln Lambs are being slaughtered by the merciless maniac in the stovepipe hat. Everyone is dying for a vote…

Reviews:

“While the film is populated with the requisite amount of blood and boobs, it’s a shame that some of the FX work comes off as even less natural than a certain pair of breasts in the film. Chris does a fair job at cutting around a few of the lesser gags, but, with a film that takes place mostly in broad daylight it’s hard to disguise all the flaws in the lackluster gore gags.” Bloody Disgusting

” …the giddy splattery tone is set and stays on course for its swift, well-paced 81-minute running time. With a body count in the double-digits and several doses of busty top-popping, this is a tasty beer n’ chips programmer with a barrel of blood and a whole lotta heart.” Horror 101 with Dr. AC

President’s Day is a solid entry that deserves a place amongst the slasher elite. There are many new-age stalk and slashers that get lost in their attempts to either try something different or pay endless tributes to the hits of the eighties. Chris LaMartina proves here that all you need to do is include enough of the recognised ingredients and have a bit of a ball with them.” Luisito Joaquin Gonzalez, A Slash Above…

  • Bennie Mack McCoy IV … Barry
  • Lizzy Denning … Joanna
